    Law Professor Mark Denbeaux, his lawyer son Joshua Denbeaux and a number of law students from Seton Hall University School of Law (where Mark is a professor) took on the arduous task of compiling the information from the military reports and organizing it. Here is what the military’s own documents have to say about where these men were apprehended: Only five percent of the prisoners were picked up by U.S. forces, 86 % of the men were arrested and turned over to the U.S. forces by the Pakistani’s or the Northern Alliance. According to the Seton Hall report "This 86% of the detainees captured by Pakistan or the Northern Alliance were handed over to the United States at a time in which the United States offered large bounties for the capture of suspected enemies. " (Pakistan’s president Pervez Musharraf admitted in his “kiss and tell” book last year that the Pakistani government made millions of dollars turning over Arab’s to the U.S. during that time period.) Only 8% of detainees are characterized as al Qaeda fighters and 60% are held because they are “associated with” groups the government asserts are terrorist organizations (though only 8% are identified as “fighters” for any group). And as for the “terrorist organizations” that these men are accused of being “associated with” the Denbeauxs released a second report again using the governments own data and analyzed the 72 organizations with which the detainees are purportedly affiliated. The groups were identified by the Department of Defense (DOD) in the CSRT data, and the Denbeauxs cross-checked those groups against the State Department Designated and Other Foreign Terrorist Organizations Lists and the Patriot Act Terrorist Exclusion List (intended to be used to exclude terrorists from the United States). The Denbeauxs report found that fully 52 of the groups on the DOD list, or 72%, are not on either of the other two lists, while 18% of the groups are on one of the two lists, but not both. What this means is that we are holding men in Guantánamo because they are “associated” with groups whose members we allow to freely travel in the U.S..

    Oh and Ajax if a minority of gun nuts tried to mount your fantasy “armed revolution” (cus it would be a minority, the rest of us believe in elections) it would be a coup attempt not a glorious revolution.

    And when the evil dictator is deposed and Syria goes the way of Libya and Egypt the right wingers will use something like this to spin a conspiracy of the Obama administration aiding radical Islam. When your politics are hammer shaped, everything is a nail.

    Really, even Politico is admitting that what the white house staffer said, TAKEN IN CONTEXT, wasn’t a threat.

    Never let the fact that corporations and Commodity Traders determine the price at the pump, not Presidents, get in the way of your righteous indignation.

    Two things have effected this price drop:
    1. People taking gains before the expected tax increases go into effect.
    2. Short sellers manipulating the stock price (through WSJ and Forbes speculative articles based on rumors).

    None of which reflects the company’s true value, but rather the nature of the high stakes casino that is wall street.

    John McCain really is the poster boy for so many neo cons: old, white, angry and irrational. Totally convinced there has got to be a scandal here that will stick (for political advantage) even as the grown ups in the room go about the business of a) taking responsibility (which she did), and b) identifying the problems and fixing them (except for the ones that require money blocked by GOP congressmen).
