Do remember, gentle men and women, that whatever we do to these prisoners will be used to justify whatever treatment is meted out by hostile nations to our captured soldiers in the future.
Even though there has yet to be one iota of evidence from any reputable media source that the detainees in Cuba have been mistreated or deprived of any essential need, I find this statement of yours to be total wishful thinking.
I would point you to the movie "Black Hawk Down". In 1993, our soldiers dismembered corpses were dragged through the streets of Mogadishu by the very people they were supposedly trying to help. Do you think the US treatment of captured enemy soldiers was figuring into the calculations of the animals that did such a thing? What you fail to realize is that scum like Bin Laden will always find some pathetic excuse to kill innocents, even if the US was the most egalitarian and charitable society on earth (and it ain't that at the best of times).
Take a look at this article from the Washington Post (interview from Pakistani who went to fight with the Taliban):
"But the enthusiasm for the movement [Taliban] waned when the Taliban and its Pakistani supporters were defeated, he acknowledged in an interview.
"It became clear that the Americans were so ruthless, they would spare nothing" in their bombardment, he said. "The movement that was picking up in the world suddenly collapsed"
The scum of this world only understand brute force.
