Is it not amazing that making a "list" and then simply zapping these morons (and all nearby) with drones is OK with Obama (and the therefore the left) yet rigorous interrogation is "wrong" and "unjust"? LOL

    It's easier to say "I will clsoe GITMO in the 1st year of my presidency" than actually doing the deed. IMHO, President Obama had to have been briefed on the fact that "other" countries wouldn't take these GITMO folks before he won the election. Hell, we all knew it when Bush was in office.

    He and his boob AG Holder wanted to "have a trial" in New York for show. But that didn't pan out either. So now he's stuck just like Bush was stuck. They are people who no one wants on their soil.

    We didn't need other countries. We've tried, convicted, and held other terrorist in the past, and did so with no negative reprocustions. It was disingenuous fear mongering that hinder him most. That and the mistakes of the Bush adminstration that complicated trial.

    President Obama said he would close GITMO in his 1st year. He didn't. Somewhere along the "campaign" trail to the POTUS job, one of his smart advisers, or some Demo stratagist/Senator/et al, should has smartened him up on the reality of the GITMO situation. He either didn't listen or they weren't very smart. As I stated common folks knew, if the read a paper at all, that countries that these prisioners were from wouldn't take them back. They didn't want to deal with them either.


    Just shows what I've said all along, he hasn't the experience to be POTUS.

    I knew it would have to be Bush's fault. How long can you Libs keep using this before even you thinks is starting to smell like a 3 day old flounder?

    The fact of the matter is that even democrats in Congress wanted NOTHING to do with having terrorists housed, and tried in their states, even IL. So to try and make it look as though it was just republican obstruction is silly.

    Which means nothing. The fear mongering worked. And that fear mongering largely came from republicans. You're too willing to turn a blind eye j. You don't like presonal responsibility. I've acknowledged democrats caved. You excuse republicans.

    Smarted? You mean that republicans would lie and deominze and that this would win the day?

    What is Bush's fault is starting needless wars and ignoring rule of law to begin with.

    What a cop out. You libs talk a good game, but when it comes down to putting up or shutting up, all libs can do is blame others for their own cowardice.

    Again, Obama promised to close GITMO his 1st year, yes? What happened? My guess he found out being a community organizer didn't give you the experience, chops, abilities to be the POTUS.

    One man's horrible/bad war is another man's good/swell war. How about Obama's war? I guess you are in support of the Afghan war, yes? That's a good war, yes?

    Now I'm sure you have, at your finger tips, . . . that list of laws that Bush and his crew broke and were prosecuted for, and will be posting it next, yes? Thanks.
