    No, most of them are "enemy combatants" who were picked up on the battlefield. Of course, after rotting at Gitmo for 7 years they may all have turned into hardcore terrorists. I would.

    I wonder if Durbin voted for the bill, since he thinks we employ Nazi guards at Gitmo.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Silly argument, no expects them to change their mind about America.

    No it was the detainee abuse and torture. Pretty much that was it.

    I am always confused
    It's okay, we know.

    Define "battle field" in the context of the war on terror.

    Am I missing something? I thought some EU nations wanted them back, like Germany? Tell me if I'm wrong. I can never seem to keep that specific detail straight.

    Everyone is too reliant on the U.S., but the U.S. wanted it that way. So it's a two-sided coin, really.

    It's been a long day and I'm tired... I'll answer this one later. Sorry Rev.

    You got your attitude right back in your face. So you can take your apology and go pound sand....

    Damn, the hubris of these so called "moderates" ......

    (Your call now. Come back to me with crap, you will get it right back. Come back with an intelligent on topic post and I will treat you the same. Your call chuckles)

    I have no need to press my point further, it's been made effectively. Thanks for the offer!

    Then you can breath a sigh of relief! The Republicans have power to stop nothing. Enjoy the farce and remember it is brought to you entirely by the Democrats.

    This is better than the Comedy Channel.
