    isolation, sleep deprivation, forced nudity and exposure to cold

    None of this is torture. Nice try.

    Terrorists. The guys at Gitmo are terrorists.

    Terrorists don't "carry arms openly and respect the laws and customs of war"

    How did you miss that?

    Terrorists are not POW's and do not have the protections of the Geneva Convention.

    Why don't you know that?

    When have captured POW's, much less terrorists, had a right to a trial in US criminal or civil court?

    You missed a question.

    world's most controversial prison

    That would be news to the political prisoners in China and North Korea.

    Deflect the heat. Go ahead. You still don't know what google is.

    Ill toss some cards on the table.

    Outdoor loudspeakers in small rooms at maximum volume blaring the hardest music on the market for extended periods of time to force sleep deprivation. You know, when you start hallucinating and going insane.

    People banging their heads on the walls trying to kill themselves.

    People writing suicide notes in blood on said walls.

    Use some research skills. That's off the top of my head from actual incidents I've read in the media. Not a whacko site, actual journalists. Hopefully it doesnt boil down to an issue of face for you but I invite you to trounce around the internet and see what you find. But then again you believe newspapers are a lie, so I may be wasting my time here and you should probably go back to watching GI joe.

    There is no other place to keep prisoners of a war like we are fighting.

It's called "a rock" and "a hardplace" and Gitmo is right there in the middle.
    It's a bit more than that. It wasn't just a, "Oh great, a legal grey area where there is no precedent so we'll just put them here until we figure it out" kind of situation. It was more of a, "Oh goodie, a somewhat justifiable means to do whatever the hell we want without breaking the law!" kind of colossal cluster ****.

    Yeah, America is getting really, really good at doing that. I thought we stood for more than beating around the legal bush. There was a time when the whole world looked to us to guide them out of Communist oppression and steer them toward principles of freedom and democracy. Now look at us. We are too busy apologizing for our own mess, or pretending it doesn't exist. It took a military whistle blower and some Australian guy who isn't even an American citizen to show us the reality, and even now there are many who refuse to look at it.

    Our country is heading down a very ominous path. I wish people would get their heads out of the sand and wake the **** up already.

    You're a socialist, you're not for anything America ever stood for.
