‘Gitmo’ must keep prisoners

June 10, 2013

Most of the 166 prisoners being held at the U.S. prison at the Guantanamo Bay military base are more than “terrorist suspects,” the term used often to describe them....

MrBoB51, you're just sad your sucker-punched comments get peeled open to reveal they are actually a manifesto for ignorance.

No getreal, Rs is not a lawyer. With all the self proclaimed knowledge and experience he's either 90 years old or simply an adolescent-like cellar dweller who likes to be contrary, as evidenced by his responses. By the way Rs, that info came from your own progressive govt. spokesman. Tell them there's no proof, not me. Hey, I don't usually believe progressive talking-heads either but there are too many 'real' facts this time to back up their own assessment which I merely repeated. I know, you progressives are still stuck with your 'good facts' while the rest of us continue to live in Realville. Disagreeing with your own must be confusing. Now, I'm done going along with your childish little games for now so run along and have some more cheetos and koolaid but don't go away, you have a bright future as a bad example. You need to be heard and corrected.

MrBoB51, you are factually incorrect, as there is no proof in anything you say regarding any of those suspects being actual terrorists.

Ok Rs, I'll type slowly so you can understand. The subhumans were in Gitmo because they are terrorists, when released they went back to being terrorists. Got it? "Typical rubbish r-edneck, backward, Fulton County-educated, trailer park low-IQ at work." Thanks for clearing up what that remark means, for a second I thought you meant somebody else instead of your own epilogue.

You can start with these misreps! Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting. The fear: Government-subsidized premiums will disappear at the end of the year under a provision in the health care law that nudges aides and lawmakers onto the government health care exchanges, which could make their benefits exorbitantly expensive.

OK then RS, empty it and send our president, and all congress members there for rehabilitation. These people are the ones doing the greatest harm to our country at this time and we have to find a way to stop them! But you seeing the good in all muslims and progressives will not see this need as they play into your hand of destroying the America that we grew up loving. Thank you so much comrade!

OH...Rschweizer I understand what the constitution dictates!!!doesn't make it right! Not all laws are right made up by people who are out of touch with reality! Why should an american constititon apply to people who are not in our country nor citizens of out country?

ToT:

'So the people that beheaded Americans then dragged them through the streets deserve some fairness? '

Yes, they do. Especially when you consider that you have no proof they did any of that.

That's the point of the justice system: gathering facts; examining evidence; testimony; depositions; juries; sentencing; etc.

The irony is that you want to apply to these suspects the same brand of instant justice that you accuse them of.

In your world we can just skip all that hugaboo trial baloney and just send them right to jails! Who needs the justice system?!

So the people that beheaded Americans then dragged them through the streets deserve some fairness? You believe that those that hung our heros from the bridge should be free to live out their lives? You believe that any of the hundreds or war criminals that reside in Gitmo deserve better treatment than they showed US? I believe that they are treated way better than they should be, they are getting way better care than they would ever give an American, even an innocent one. Close that prison if you feel you need to but I suggest the inmates be freed to fulfil their journey to their rewards and promised land... just like they wanted to do! Just not on this planet.

That's the problem, if they were on US soil they would have been a HC would have been filed and they would have been released. The government really does not know what to do with them but they do not want them running around. However if the roles were reversed they probably would have been killed already. Gitmo always has been a place to stuff foreigners that we really don't know what to do with. Personally I would send them home if there were no grounds to hold them. No way would I want any of them in the US ever.

MrBoB51, I'm not sure what you're trying to say: that less than 1/3 (a poor number at that) are actually terrorists? or that Gitmo has no basis for being open?

gville70, if you were held merely on suspicion for as long as those guys at Gitmo are held, your lawyer would file a writ of habeas corpus and have you released. So don't give me that baloney two-faced double-standard crap.

While we're on the subject of 'facts', well, at least I am, let's consult the progressive dictionary and look up 'fact'. FACT: "Any statement authorized, approved and delineated by the current Administration. Good 'facts' as opposed to 'real' facts. Facts that support the current Administration's views and policies." (See also 'lies'). The next time a progressive tries to foist off any 'facts' or try to present their opinion as fact, remember the above definition.

RS, first of all these throwbacks, not being Americans are NOT entitled to our Justice System. So, you consider the following 'baseless': As of 2/4/2013 our Intelligence system has identified 168 out of 602 detainees that were transferred to other countries from Gitmo rejoined terrorist groups or otherwise took part in insurgent and terrorist activities. Baseless indeed. You can find that information if you wanted to. Your own 'facts' are embarrassing you.

drugsrus, you aren't posing any argument- you're using disgusting racial epithets to cast an entire group of people into the same category. It's gross.

But you're the Christian terrorist, so I cannot debate you.

swizzer, I can be reasoned with, but you are not posing arguments opposite my point of view. You merely call names and tell me how wrong I am. So with no credible opposing argument and others chiming in from my same general point of view, we can only assume you are wrong.

gville70, it doesn't matter if AIDS was curable or not, the fact of the matter is you compared its patients to prisoners. These are your words not mine.

WTF is the matter with you?
