The art of managing the "criminal"

It seems like the U.S. has produced way too many criminals and as a part of the program to export "democracy," "criminals" from Guantanamo Bay are being exported as well. To where? To Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and other places where they "come from." Of course, these have to be countries with which we have good relations, or it won't work. Never mind the human rights abuses in prisons of these countries! I guess, if they torture them, then we don't have to worry about making up excuses the way we did in the Abu-Gharib case. It is their problem now!
Come to think of it, it all works out well. Because if these "renditions" mean that there is a slight chance that these prisoners may be released from prisons in other countries, then we have a guaranteed threat for life, without being blamed for inadequecy in our "security" systems... Which means that we can have an on-going "war on terror"! We can keep searching for them and post their images on the "most-wanted" lists, and when we think it is a good time to attack, we can "smoke them out" by bombing and occupying where we suspect these "enemies" of "democracy" may be hiding! What a brilliant plan. Kudos to the evil minds that are out there to fight "evil"!
