    How do you declare war on a non-nation? Can some one declare war on the Republican party?

    Don't follow the news much? SCOTUS said all prisoners in U.S. custody on U.S. soil, including GITMO, have a right to Habeus Corpus. Citizenship does not matter. The Constitution agrees.

    Well, you can define words however you want I guess. If you can't go to war with a non-nation though, we're not at war right now.

    Technically, I don't think we are. Too bad that does not stop the dying.

    Note: I always hated the phrase "war on terror".

    They are enemy combatants who seek to harm this country, and they're not U.S. Citizens. Who cares what we do with them?

    So because a hyper-left blogger and semi-journalist claims that Gitmo detainees were innocent, they were indeed innocent. Then claims that Bush and Cheney knew it. Then claims they did nothing about it.

    Except most likely some are not. And we should care. The fact we do care is why we are better than them.

    No, the chief of staff of the Secretary of State under Bush(Powell, the first one) claims that some where innocent and that Bush/Cheney knew it. Significant difference from what you said.

    But did he say that Bush and Cheney knew of specific individuals in Gitmo who were innocent and decided to not release them anyways, or just that they knew that some of them were probably innocent, but didn't know which ones? There's a big difference.
