    Guantanamo Detainees May Be Released in U.S

    Guantanamo Detainees May Be Released in U.S.

    WASHINGTON -- Attorney General Eric Holder said some detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may end up being released in the U.S. as the Obama administration works with foreign allies to resettle some of the prisoners.

    Mr. Holder, in a briefing with reporters, said administration officials are still reviewing individual cases of the approximately 250 detainees to determine which will be put on trial and which may be released to comply with plans to close the detention facility by next year.

    Question for The Obamanation:
    If one (or more) of these ex-detainees blows up a US city (or whatnot) how do you blame Bush?

    Since a maximum 24 of 700 Guantanamo detainees were actually terrorists, I would say that releasing a detainee who is known to be innocent would create a very small likelihood of a city being blown up. Or are you a subscriber of the mosaic theory?

    It should. But if it doesn't, that's OK.

    If you followed the news, you wouldn't keep referring to proven facts as bull****, and possibly even wouldn't look so ignorant

    even for those two dozen or so of the detainees who might well be hardcore terrorists, there was virtually no chain of custody, no disciplined handling of evidence, and no attention to the details that almost any court system would demand. Falling back on "sources and methods" and "intelligence secrets" became the Bush administration's modus operandi to camouflage this grievous failing.

    Perhaps you missed that article, it is fairly new, but then there's this...from 2004.

    But as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on the legal status of the 595 men imprisoned here, an examination by The New York Times has found that ... only a relative handful -- some put the number at about a dozen, others more than two dozen -- were sworn Qaeda members or other militants able to elucidate the organization's inner workings.

    So I think I've proved the only bull**** here is BETWEEN YOUR EARS! Have a nice day

    If you had actually looked at your sources, you'd note that neither of them -- one of them, an op-ed piece -- supplies any real backing for your claim.

    ...some put the number at about a dozen, others more than two dozen...
    Boy, thems HARD facts, there!!



    And you still havent answered the question.
