A Muslim detainee leads a group as they bow during Islamic prayer, in an outdoor common area at the Camp Delta 4 detention center on the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. Camp 4 is a medium-security facility, but others, which house high-value prisoners, confine them alone in virtual isolation


Is it a human rights violation we only pay for and provide prayer rugs for the non high-value prisoners? Or do they only get to utilize them in isolation?

Bottom line is Obama lacked and continues to lack experience to be POTUS muchless CIC. I think once he got in the big boy oval office chair; he saw his promises regarding closing GTMO were simply uncalled for, not prudent and very unwise.

I wish Obama would have succeeded at closing Gitmo. You conservatives laughing at his hypocrisy need to recognize your own. Gitmo is a stain on our system.

Right. Congress killed the prisoner transfers, not Obama.

Did you want him to release everybody?


I want them moved to a Maximum Security Prison and so does the President. In the mean time, Congress doesn't have the political will to move them. Don't blame Obama for Gitmo, blame Congress.

Not even the progressive Dems had the 'political will' to allow terrorists rights under our legal system. That is a good thing for us all.

quote:

“In late breaking news last night, the Democratic leadership may be trying to bring Guantanamo Bay terrorists to the United States. They’ve inserted language in the defense bill that would then give the president the ability to transfer Guantanamo terrorists to the continental United States. That has a direct impact on Illinois where they could come to the Thomson facility. Also remember, the moment they come to the United States, a whole wrath of new legal procedures and abilities attached to them and after we saw the near disaster of the first civilian trial of a terrorist in New York, I think this is another last gasp of majority leader Reid which needs to be defeated,” Kirk said.

Kirk said that this move would weaken national security and reminded listeners that senior Taliban leader Mullah Zakir has already been released by the U.S. He said Zakir’s release shows us that more actual terrorists could easily be released and if they are in prisons inside the U.S. that means they could be released right inside our heartland.

Kirk is so right on this, too. Imagine how our fetid court system will do with multiple trials for terrorists being held inside the U.S.A.? Who does not doubt that cases will “conveniently” fall apart due to incompetence and activist, left-wing judges? If we see these terrorists transferred to facilities inside the U.S. it won’t be long before at least some of these dangerous enemies will be wandering free in our communities and left to plan their next murderous actions right here at home.

Above all, moving terrorists to U.S. prisons would automatically bestow upon these foreign enemies all the rights afforded to American citizens by the Constitution of the United States. This would necessarily happen because these terrorists would be winding their way through our civil and criminal court systems and our legal system has no provision for “terrorists” ensconced in it. The only way for these terrorists to be able to appear before an American civil or criminal court is for the accused to be afforded all our rights. Our legal system isn’t set up any other way.

I'd like to give them trials at least and prove that we are better than these bastards. Instead we've proven time and time again during this war that our military is no better than them, with waterboarding, nude photos, and refusing to give them a trial.

No shite. My larger point, which you apparently missed, was that conservatives should want it shut down, too.

Agreed. It was one of the few things I was looking forward to when Obama got elected.

There are a few big Al Qaeda operatives rotting in ADX Florence, probably wishing they were dead.

Same here.

Oh, and cutting the deficit in half in his first four years.

Still waiting... any day now... any day.
