    That's kind of like proving a negative, doncha think? However, Bush and Cheney and Powell and Wilkerson all agree there were innocents. Ain't that good enough for you?
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.

    This to me is the whole problem with this situation. It's a new situation we don't really have rules and laws for yet. They are not PoWs, the potential for misarrests(what do you call it?) is high, but there is no system really to weed out those who belong in custody and those who don't.

    All that is why I again mention that I think we need to investigate the whole issue, how we detain people, what rules are right, the torture issue, everything, and make a proper set of rules. No prosecutions, no pointing fingers, just investigate to find ways to improve the system, cuz right now, it's too confused.

    Absent his trial there is plenty of proof of this jerk's guilt.

    Try staying on topic. Or is this Obama's fault?

    Is that your way of not answering the question through threat?

    No. I can't answer the question because I don't make the decisions. If you want to question it, PM a mod.

    That would explain why I did not call it a fact, but a supposition, yes.
