    Re: Guantanamo closure plan ordered

    I'm very pleased at how Bush is handling the transition - environmental issues aside. On the Iraq/War on Terror front he is definitely making Obama's job easier, which will help Obama to focus on the economy once he takes power. Were McCain taking office in January I think the transition would look quite a bit different, and if that is true I applaud Bush for taking his successor's aims into account.

    I believe one of them is to be uniformed. Insurgents are not uniformed. There's more. I'll have to go look up old posts about this.
    Then they should stand trial in the US under status of "kidnapped foreigners"..

    Your government is corrupting you with these things, in every way they can do whatever they want and you support them.

    Hopefully, the closure plan includes moving the detainees to your hometown so that they can thank you personally. What, you don't want them in your town? Why why ever not? They're just innocent, misunderstood [insert innocuous occupation here.]

    I think the Bush haters have a reading comprehension problem.

    Bush isn't closing the base. That bit of nutiness will be left to Obama. Good too.

    Terrorists, on trial at a neighborhod near you.

    Trials will be the first time we have taken enemy combatants from the battlefield and put them on trial during the course of a war against them. The great thing, the genius of the Guantanamo scheme is there won't be an end to the war on terror and that means they would be locked up for life.

    What next? Reading them their rights when taken in battle?

    Nutso.

    It's the Pentagon, actually. Obama still has zero power

    On Bush's watch, as Commander in Chief, actually. And if Bush did not want the Pentagon to plan the closure until he's gone, I'm sure they would have. Bush ended the war in Iraq (or at least negotiated the end), and Bush is closing Guantanamo Bay (if credit is to go to any president)

    Kidnapped? Go get yourself a dictionary son.

    I suppose POW's and domestic criminals in prison are also "kidnapped"?


    Your government is corrupting you with these things, in every way they can do whatever they want and you support them.
    Go look at the Geneva conventions that you claim they are protected by as POWs. Or do I have to shame you by quoting it myself?

    You have a record of making specious and ignorant claims which follows you even in this thread. Then when you are cornered you spew rhetoric like that of above instead of having humility and arguing points based on facts.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Ah, I see this is a (wo)man who has no idea about the Iranian Hostage Crisis and it sounds like terrorists in general.

    Go read what Herb Cohen wrote. He advised both Carter and Reagan. Carter ignored his advice. Cohen predicted to the minute when the hostages would be released. Why? He knows the culture cold.

    He also writes about our terrorism problem and the cost of the way libs deal with them. He doesn't state libs, but just read his stuff and you'll see how moronic Obama's statements are about dealing with terrorists.

    Obama is a child in a cruel world. Unfortunately the damage is done.
