    There are a group of Federal Prosecutors and investigators who have become experts at convicting terrorists in the U.S. while not compromising national security. The Judges who hear these cases follow the law. The Marshals who manage these prisoners are extremely competent and well-trained.

    I don't have a problem with Gitmo, enhanced interrogations, or electrocuting someone's testicles if it will save American lives. The mistake was trying to codify it--writing memos, trying to make it legal and on the books.

    Regarding the story in the OP -- I had already heard this 1 in 5 stat. How many people total are we talking about? What was the circumstances of their release from Gitmo?

    This wouldn't be happening right now if they had been granted POW rights from the very start.

    You're kidding, right?

    You were not aware that terrorists have been prosecuted and sentenced to Federal Prison for some time now?

    Seriously. You didn't know that?

    All you have said is unsubstantiated lunatic fringe liberal kookery!

    You haven't proved kidnappings yet punchy....
    Don't believe everything you read on rabid wingnut blogs, try reading some other sources.

    Is there no thread about the CIA guys convicted of kidnapping in Italy recently?
    Come on, don't ask me to waste my time and point you to news headlines, I don't buy your pretended ignorance.

    That's right.

    Specific Authorization the same thing, pease read your rule of law.
    I do not follow US law.

    Congressionally designated enemy combatants.
    Yep, a deliberate attempt to create a lawless area outside the Geneva Convention.

    You were wrong and making colossal errors then and now, so what?
    Nope, both Wiki or A.I. make good starting points to inform yourself.

    Wait, you do not follow US law and yet you make such declarations? Seriously?

    My suggestion...learn about something before you comment on it.

    There is nothing extremist about logic, and no, I am not dishonest.
    It's not that I "may have" one case, but I pointed at an obvious one which recently made headlines

    and yet you comment on it.
    ...and?

    Something you wish to say, or just blathering?
