    Or was there some hearsay that these guys once passed so other "terrorist suspects" on the street. The truth is you do not know, and neither does anyone else on this forum.

    As to convicting without proof as you have done, you reverse the burden of proof from the Anglo-Franco "innocent until proven otherwise" to the "Arabic standard of guilty until proven innocent.

    So, I do not see how, in any kind of reason or good conscience deliberately reverse the standard of proof and demand of those cheering this that they somehow offer some kind of evidence of the "crimes" these people are "reported" to have done, abandoning the democratic principle of onus of proof.

    I mean did the terrorists win and we do things their way or do we show some intestinal fortitude and stand by the basic democratic principles of which the US CLAIMS to be about? If so, try these people in a court of law, or let them go with financial compensation for the illegal detainment they have suffered.
    Do you believe this is a criminal matter? If so you will always get the wrong answer.

    just how do you preserve and hold safe democracy by abandoning the basic principle of innocent until proven guilty?
    Unlawful combatants may be war criminals. They are not protected by the US Constitution or most of the Geneva Conventions.

    I would be willing to try them before military tribunals followed by a rapid execution upon conviction.

    They are unlawful enemy combatants. they are not US citizens. If you want to try them then do it before a military tribunal. Then execute them upon conviction.

    How do people on the left get to be so ... never mind.

    Right. But they will be now that that son of a bitch on the golf course has let them go.

    The timing is good. I hope some House members grow back their testicles and impeach the son of a bitch on the golf course.

    So many of them have been approved to sent out of Guantanamo, you wont give them a trial that the USSC has deemed they have a right to? But did you forget that during the military commissions many of those who were formally charged were acquitted? Did you also forget that 8 of 30 people brought in front of a military commission face actual charges? Can you carry this on beyond talking points?
