    The GOP could not have stopped this bill if they wanted to -- the Dems have a fillibuster-proof majority.
    No, no -- you can only blame the Dems for denying The Obama what He wants.

    I think they should just send them back from whence they came. If they are killed by their own, so what. If they are not guilty, there should be nothing to fear. If they are, have the tribunals and execute them. Because, you know rehabilitation works so well, and we cannot even afford to keep domestic prisoners in prison. It is ridiculous.

    If you allow captured terrorists to intermingle within our prison system, they will organize and recruit from within our borders more effectively. God forbid they get organized with MS 13 or another group like that.

    No, they need to be kept far away, amidst only themselves.
    Please provide a link that shows that the intent is to throw these detainees in with prison gangs such as MS-13?

    Re: Senate votes to block funds for Guantanamo closure

    Question. I have always wondered this.

    If they are found innocent, and was tortured or abused [either physically or mentally] by US. Would they get compensation and/or be able to sue US?
    And who would they sue? US Government or a specific person? Or the person doing the torturing?

    So where are we going to put them? By themselves? Then why not just keep Gitmo open? Same difference.

    Obama campaigns on closing gitmo. Obama announces presidential orders to close Gitmo. Obama requests funds to close gitmo and is denied by congress.

    It doesn't get anymore obvious than that folks. The excuses and contorting is simple denial.

    +1 campaign promise unfullfilled.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

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

    You mean the policy that stopped numerous attacks and kept you safe the past seven years?
