Großadmiral DönitzOfcourse they should be closed down, it's fine to hold suspects but they have the right on a fair trial either as a civilian or enemy soldier. That way the actual badguys can be locked behind bars and those who happen to be suspected but turn out to be innocent willwalk free again (as they would and should have been a long time ago).

Only one problem with this argument: under the Geneva Convention, terrorists and spies are not legally protected soldiers. If you catch a spy, or suspect someone of spying, there's very little you can't do to him.
