    Already did, champ. Already did.



    You can go back and see for yourself, but considering I already told you to do so twice, and you still have no idea what I actually said (or simply keep lying about it), I'm thinking you're never going to.

    If you feel a need to "reinterpret" the Constitution, you must know that what you want to do is unconstitutional.

    That's actually the legal standard of almost every country except for the United States. Much like with the Metric System and soccer, we're the outlier.

    Not that it has anything to do with the Geneva Conventions or prisoners captured on the battlefield, much as some of you are so uninformed as to keep thinking.

    Not, again, that anyone has a prayer of getting through to you on that.

    The Road to Guantanamo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Everyone should watch this, it really changed my opinion of Gitmo

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64wjSaO47p0.....also watch this its a quick video but its very interesting.


    No doubt they have some bad guys at gitmo but the way the are detained without trail or any real hard evidence is a massive problem for me. These 3 Guys went through hell and all because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Only until there is a "speedy" trial by a jury of the suspect's peers.

    It's that not depriving people of life, liberty or property without due process idea that was written into the Constitution, the one that we seem willing to overlook today.
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    They are not there because they were arrested for crimes.

    Not sure why that's such a difficult point to grasp.

    Hmm...


    That is a good point...

    So far as I understand, they're there because they are either unlawful combatants or suspected of such...

    They are suspected of such, and, therefore, have to prove their innocence.

    Guilty until proven innocent, correct?
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    No, they are there because they're combatants, period.

    The rules of criminal justice do not apply.

    The irony in all of this is if they were just declared official prisoners of war, they would gain nothing they don't already have and there would be no question whatsoever that no tribunals or trials would be forthcoming for the entire duration of their imprisonment (unless they violated a rule of the camp).

    but then they would be covered by the Geneva Accords.
