What should a country do with a prisoner it has itself radicalized? [View all]

I'm thinking obviously of the prisoners in GITMO that we can't find a country to take in.

Grant for the sake of argument that we're talking about prisoners who were entirely free from wrongdoing when we shipped them to prison (this was the case for some of them)

Grant for the sake of argument that they now are angry enough at the US to help advance terrorist plans against us or countries deemed too close to us.

What do you do at that point? Pericles told the Athenians that "this empire was wrong to grasp, but dangerous to let go of"; what do you say about that argument?
