    "One of your own"...are you serious? what is this some sort of battle with two sides? What are the two sides anyway?


    I made a mistake. Period.

    If an 'anti-aquapub' made a mistake and then immediately apologized, I don't see how aquapub could've bashed them.

    Sorry, but I think your statement, americanwoman, was and is, purely emotional; think about it.

    People should not be held in a situation where they are beyond the law.

    Bush had this strange idea that because he was president that he could choose to ignore laws and traditions as he chose, because he had some sort of beyond the constitution presidential power.

    He was just puppet for giant corporatons, and we can all see what things have evolved into:

    world financial and political chaos.

    Hooray for Bush/Cheney

    Not everyone in Gitmo was captured on a battlefield killing our troops. Stop playing the fool.

    It's called being a loose constructionist.
    In history, our greatest presidents starting from Washington were loose constructionists, shaping the American presidency the unwritten laws that eventually became written.

    Something like the Barbary Coast War, in which Jefferson went into a war in a very similar way to how Bush did - in what some may call an unconstitutional fashion.

    But Jefferson didn't get a bad rap (besides the fact that he wasn't misinformed from his intelligence) because he won.

    Please explain how that applies to Gitmo

    Nearly every single one, yes. And the few who weren't guilty (and some that were) were released, and one that turned out to be a Saudi radical virtually since birth, that had been caught fighting alongside al Qaida, but born on American soil right before his parents left the country, was transferred to a different system.

    There is simply no controversy here. It's nothing more than smoke and mirrors by hysterical left-wing ideologues seeking to apologize for America's existence and beg Islam's forgiveness. Stop being a fool.

    They all claim to be innocent. Yet 61 of the 450 that were released went directly back to killing. So yes, keep them locked up until the war is over. If you truly cared for them, you would be championing a ramp-up to the WOT to win it ASAP, and to win it we need to keep killing anyone who so much as tosses a rock at our troops until there are no rock throwers left.

    You cannot win a War on Terror. Terror is not an entity, it is a concept.

    Sure we can, and how you describe it is moot.

    Then you are more naive than I originally thought. Please, do enlighten me on how we can win a war against a faceless enemy that exists all over the world.
