What should we do when we close Guantanamo?

Both presidential candidates have announced their intention - or at least their desire - to close the terrorist detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  But, one might ask, what should we do with all the lovely people being held there?

A potential solution came to me today reading this article.  The headline says it all:  "Saudi Arabia prepares first al-Qaeda trials."

Our Saudi "friends" have a certain old-world style when it comes to dealing with criminals.  That style might just be what the doctor ordered.

I've always thought that if you can't bring clear legal charges against them that will stick, turn them over to authorities in their country of nationality and let them decide what to do with them.

If you can't prosecute a case against them, then we have no business holding them, otherwise forgein countries will feel free to treat our citizens the same way, holding them ideffinately without charging them with anything.
