    By freeing his mind while imprisoned Malcolm X said he'd never felt so free.

    Dr. King continued his quest while in jail.

    Anyone who was falsely imprisoned could free their minds and rise above their circumstances.

    So Rev...Keep it open or close it? I did not say close it tomorrow...you did. I said ASAP..Do you know what ASAP stands for?

    They are military prisoners. Even in civilian life if a prison is proven to be using abusive practices you change the administration and the the practices. Not close the prison. There should be changes I agree but although this may upset some people I think it should be left to the politicians military and the Jstice dept to decide what changes need to be made because they who and why is/are being detained there.

    I do think that the geneva convention should be applied though.

    If you vote yes you want it closed.

    If you vote no you want it to remain open.

    Yes or No...reveal yourself so we can all see who supports what, OK?
    50 % yes , 50% no...The no`s have it. The people voteing yes will have their wish all to soon. Tis a new day dawning with all the potential of those days of liberal rule from 1992 thru 2000. Remember all the terror attacks under Bill Cliton. Terrorism and the rapid spread of Islams war lust.

    Do you really wanna bet on this?



    LOL - sure. 23 hour lock down. 1 hour of recreation. concrete floors, seats, beds etc. No contact with the outside world that doesn't involve a pane of glass between you and the other person. But hey guess what? No :

    Hmm, I gave you one example, and you gave me one example. Is this representative of example of the norm?

    Yes, I think it should. As soon as they can redirect the prisoners and start their trials, they should close it as soon as they can.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    Give them a trial and if the evidence is there, jail them. Otherwise release them.
    Now, im personally of the opinion US should take them all but ... i don't think that is possible.

    Really? Can you show me in the history of warfare where war prisoners were released during the prosecution of a war?

    So you would rather continue torturing them until Iraq is over? Keeping them imprisoned for years?

    Shall we be thankful McCain didn't win then? In Iraq for 100 years indeed

    Lets say we wait until Iraq is over.
    When they are found innocent, how much do you think US Govt. should pay them for reparations?
