I Think I Have an Idea What May Be Wrong Here (updated and bumped Welcome Media Matters Readers)
After reading this Bloomberg story about Gitmo inmates being released and returning to the battlefield to fight or even blow themselves up on Baby Jesus's birthday, I think I may have have determined that we've overlooked a crucial and economic solution to the problem.
Most if not all of these men were captured "out of official uniform". Under the Geneva Convention that makes them all spies and they may be be er uh, shot.
The site above prices 7.62 mm rounds at 5.99 per 20 rounds.

Go decode that bitches.
