“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Perpetual war on terror=perpetual detention, I have problems with this concept.
Report shows U.S. jails could house Guantanamo detainees - CBS News
The GAO study shows that U.S. prisons already hold 373 prisoners convicted of terrorism in 98 facilities across the country.
"As far as I know, there hasn't been a single security problem reported in any of these cases," Feinstein said. "This fact outweighs not only the high cost of maintaining Guantanamo — which costs more than $114 million a year — but also provides the same degree of security without the criticism of operating a military prison in an isolated location."

Don't spread my wealth, spread my work ethic.
Those poor GITMO detainees! We should all feel sorry for them. They could be back home, marrying another wife, or stoning a woman for not wearing a head scarf. OHHHHhhh poor poor detainees. We should erect a monument in solidarity to their suffering. Think of all the roadside bombs and ambushes that our troops overseas will avoid by not having these guys released. They deserve DUE PROCESS!!! Especially since they themselves believe in due process. The tribal court cases... ahh yes, the smell of machine guns firing off rounds as justice is served in the provence....
- There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
- Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
- Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
Show them that we're not going to play and they won't F with us.
