    Afaict, there's only ONE source reporting on this.

    If it was done w/o Congressional approval, it was an impeachable offense.
    Is it more likely in your opinion that Congress is giving Obama a pass on an impeachable offense or that a reporter made a mistake?

    Is it more likely in your opinion that the Taliban have decided to avoid embarrassing the United States or that a reporter made a mistake?

    Is it more likely that Congress decided not to make political hay out of Obama asking them to release these guys or that a reporter made a mistake?
    I may be wrong.

    Ninety-five percent weren't even captured by US forces.
    Bush let quite a few GITMO prisoners go that were the least dangerous and had the shakiest cases against them and many of those were later found to return to terrorism. What is left at GITMO is the worst of the worst.

    You can back up these claims with evidence, I assume?

    Well, yeah. This is a message board. People agree and disagree. It would get quit boring if everyone agreed on everything, wouldn't it?

    "Hard feelings" from discussing issues with people? That sounds very liberal.

    So you don't remember the crap Bush caught for releasing GITMO prisoners that ended up being terrorist again or you never even heard of it in the first place. Either way you are not worth my time. Do a little home work before attempting an intelligent conversation, get at least a tiny bit informed.

    So, that's a 'no'. If you had the evidence you'd have shown it. I remember all that being said; I don't remember it being proved. It would appear that a maximum of 6 ex-GITMO detainees have been 'confirmed' (which appears to fall short of being 'proved') to have returned to the battlefield.

    As usual you debate with BS assertions thinking that you won't get called out.

    So you ran to Wiki in a desperate search to justify your lack of knowledge on a subject. By the way, why do so many of you libs pretend to be cons, what's the game here?

    Wiki proves very little, just that it proves you haven't provided anything to back up your spouting of BS. Nada.

    I am quite conservative in many respects although over here there's no need to believe that creation took place in 6 days, that life begins at conception and that the poor are there to service the rich in order to be seen as conservative.

    Nah! I'm sh**ing ya. I change my lean all the time to mess with your head. You're about #7 to get all whiny about it.
