    I don't think that at all. Terrorism as been around a long time. Since we have gone on the offensive, we've had better results inside our land. Of course every place can't say that, the weakest spot or the easiest for the terrorist to attack get hit quite often. But it's that way regardless of whatever US policy is. When the US speaks about human rights these days, keenly aware people will and do listen. Those swept up in over emotional feelings or those with leanings toward the terrorist won't. At least until the terrorists strike close to them. Then they choose either complete surrender, like Spain did for awhile, or they smarten up.

    And yes again. The administration wanted to take out an enemy in the area. Iran was discussed as an alternative. But Saddam screamed: "Here!"

    And no. I think we could have forced Saddam with other means.

    But once Bush had committed, Schröder/Chirac/Putin had him. They knew he could not back down. They needed only convince Saddam he was safe.

    Okay guys, this discussion is getting a bit repetitive, I think we all got each other's view. I'm afraid we'll have to agree to disagree.
    Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.

    taliban guantanamo detainees site:.gov
    https://www.google.com/search?q=tali...cial&tbs=qdr:m

    The closest I can find is this from the WaPo republished on ebird.osd.mil:
    Early Bird: At Guantanamo, 71 Detainees Will Get Parole-Style Hearings
    from July 22
    But based on the categories, the 71 men whose files will be reviewed include five Taliban members whose release is sought as part of an Afghanistan peace agreement.

    Istm, that having your file reviewed is somewhat different than having been released.
    I may be wrong.

    Interesting that the American media isn't reporting this but then again these terrorist promised to never do it again so no big deal I guess.

    Surely you've considered the possibility of some of these people actually being innocent.

    No I have not. Everyone in GITMO is a POW.

    And everyone burned in Salem was a witch.

    You see, a lot of these people are in prison based solely on the word of someone else. A bounty was advertised for turning in "terrorists," and, well, I really want to take over my neighbors business...

    Ninety-five percent weren't even captured by US forces.
