    This would be true if Yeman could be certain to be just. Otherwise, no. It might meet the letter of his promise, but not the intent.

    George Bush should have done the same thing and kept it out of the public view. People just want to be kept safe, they don't have to know the details of how.
    This does assume that everyone suspected is actually a terrorist. You know, no human error, guilty regardless of proof. And while I doubt your claim, it does beg the question as to whether you specifically care about right and wrong, good and evil, rule or law.

    Yes, and have said so. While Afghanistan was the proper place to focus, not Iraq, he misses what actually needs to be done. No nation building. Just concern ourselves with safety. A much smaller, more focused effort would be prefered.

    that said, at least he is focused in the right country. That's a small improvement.

    LOL!

    like obama's concern is that yemen is gonna be TOO TOUGH on the detainees released

    Nearly 20 percent of detainees released from Guantanamo Bay are believed to have returned to the battlefield, the White House said in a letter to House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi seen by AFP Tuesday.

    The letter, from President Barack Obama's counterterrorism advisor John Brennan, acknowledges that the "intelligence community assesses that 20 percent of detainees transferred from Guantanamo are confirmed or suspected of recidivist activity."

    Among detainees known to have returned to terrorism are some who joined Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, a terror group based in Yemen that claimed responsibility for planning a failed Christmas Day terror attack on a US plane.

    Reading comphrehension is important. Being unjust swings both ways. Just thought you should know.

    Actually, you don't know.

    A few questions:

    If someone is released who is quilty, actually a terrorist, is this just or unjust?

    Do we know if someone actually returned, or joined because of they unjust treatment?

    You make leaps and don't really address what has been written. It's mildly annoying. I wish you would do a better job of understanding, even if it is understanding what you post.
