Talking about Guantanamo Bay recidivism is like talking about Gulag recidivism

Because the Gulag system was supposedly aimed at "rehabilitation" too. I didn't realize that rehabilitation was one of the functions of Guantanamo, considering that the term is usually applied to prisoners who are charged, tried, convicted, and sentenced for a crime. Personally, if I was a Guantanamo inmate who was freed, revenge against the system and country that put me there would be foremost on my mind.
