    How long will it take for the teabaggers to shift their opinion now that Obama is for military tribunals? I mean, if Obama is for it, they MUST be against it, right?

    I'm glad it's going military. But, on the other hand, our civilian courts have sacked many of those bastards away too. (More than our tribunals have, If I recall correctly.)

    I just don't think those assholes deserve the same protections and rights as our citizens do. **** 'em. The discovery process could also threaten national security.

    Keep 'em in a dark cell, railroad them through the tribunals, hang 'em and be done with it.

    I wish I was on that tribunal.

    Yes, we'll definitely hear about how this is a travesty, a violation of rights, that bastard Obama is ignoring the constitution!

    No, he was captured by Pakistani forces and turned over to our military. He receives no rights.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    We don't offer civilian trials to enemies captured by our military abroad. Never have.

    Shows these maniacs that America isn't going to compromise its core values for anything.
    We've been showing maniacs military tribunals throughout history, why we want these men given special status, I'll never know.

    Bad idea.... Barry already said they would be found guilty and executed.

    Our core values have already been compromised.

    ummmm... because that's the... law?

    that would cost hundreds of millions and damage the integrity of the judicial system?
    And where do you get anything to support such claims
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    No he was captured by Pakistani intelligence then turned over to the CIA then transferred to our facility. By what definition of "captured by our military" does that fall under. Transferring of custody is not the same as capturing.
