    Killing defenseless people is exactly what Obama is doing with his drones. He's killing innocent people and those that are suspect terrorists without a trial.

    Now for the people at Club Getmo just leave them there and not kill them, or let them go and kill them with drones and get a few more innocent people along the way.

    THe link I posted above said over 2/3 of all Gitmo detainees have already been cleared of wrong-doing. THey need to be released. Period.

    THe rest need to be put on trial. Military trial even if that's the best remedy for this FUBAR.

    apples and oranges. Start a thread on the drones. This one is about Gitmo. But, if you insist, I say letting them all go and droning the ones we don't trust is just fine.

    I'm sensing a bit of irritation in your tone with me. I have no interest in fighting with you vesper. I said my position and I stand by it. I find the death penalty is unwise for the people to support for the very reason that the state is killing people for actions it finds wrong. I'm sorry, but I can not support that.

    You know the first week I was on DP it was you that got me an infraction because of your baiting. Well in a few short weeks I've seen how you operate. And all I got to add is while you bait then you add things like "chill out" or "stop making it personal" when you were behind making it so...or "remain on topic" when you were the one that instigated the "off topic discussion" Stick a sock in it sugar.

    The red rape exists for a reason. It seems that people get so lost in tribal rivalry that they forget there is a purpose behind our troops being in those countries. We are trying to re-engineer their society to suit us better. If reckless behavior undermines the willingness of those populations to cooperate with us, then there was little point to launching the campaign to begin with.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Due process.

    It has been long enough...those that are being held without sufficient evidence, release them immediately. If their original countries won't take them, find a decent one that will.

    Those that have sufficient evidence against them, try them NOW and (if convicted) incarcerate them in America.

    Then close this pathetic chapter in American history.

    Now tell me who are the ones that you don't trust? I don't trust any of them. Period.
