    Unfortunately it’s been so long since these guys were originally incarcerated there is no clean way to resolve this. It’s a mess, will always be a mess and a political nightmare since it has gone on so long.
    IMO these guys should have been tried as “war criminals” years ago or released and we take our chances with their “possible future terrorist activity.” Besides now the republicans are getting fired up to fire up “Benghazi 3.” This whole scenario is so pathetic.

    Agreed. The longer this goes on, the worse it gets. We talk freedoms and act indefinite detention. If we want to be the people we think we see in the mirror, we have some work to do.

    In war, prisoners are exchanged according to agreement between sides or repatriated at the end of hostilities. Has the war on terror ended? Has the enemy negotiated for an exchange of prisoners? I guess the enemy has no prisoners to exchange for we taught the Afghanistanians well during their war against the USSR.

    ^you can’t have a war on terror – that is pure rhetoric. war is fought between state actors. terrorism is a tactic, like ‘shock and awe’. however clearly terrorism is more powerful and more effective than ‘shock and awe’, as ‘shock and awe’ begets terrorism.

    While I am not questioning the current administrations efforts to close this problem. Is there someplace that we could actually find these restrictions by the Republicans in Congress that are stopping the closing down of this facility?

    After all terrorism is no more or less of a crime than any other murder of innocent people (such as drive by shootings by gang members). And we do have very secure federal penitentiaries for such federal crimes within the US itself. Why make these men (and possibly even women) so special (which seems to be just what Islamic extremists seem to want anyway)? Would not our own sense of US Constitutional justice be better served by treating these people as we would any other violent federal criminals?

    RWNJ’s in the House won’t fund the closing of Gitmo but, it’s Obama’s fault. For RWNJ’s, that is.

    Shoot, according to Obama, the Terrorists are on the run, decimated, unable to mount any serious attack….

    So let those guys go back to that defeated camp. What’s the big deal?

    I think gitmo is a perfect place for untried war criminals, when the war ends, then we have a trial. Leave em there!

    “Shoot, according to Obama, the Terrorists are on the run, decimated, unable to mount any serious attack….”


    seems pretty accurate to me. and understatement, in fact.

    OK Danny then explain this: Here is a list of Terrorist groups. According to the reference section it has some updates in 2012. So some what current. Note that it has a section on “previous” groups before 2002 (as I read the article, you can correct that if you can).

    And I really think you will find this article interesting, even though it is a “conservative” site. Lots of busy graphs and stuff…

    Hardly seems that this reflects “every 10th terrorist” as being killed. And Dude, do you really think that Obama was using it in the literal sense rather than using the word to instill the concept that the terrorists were “annihilated creamed, destroyed, demolished, desolated, devastated” as in barely able to get out of bed much less mount any attacks?

    Reality sucks sometimes.

    ^it is indeed interesting for a number of reasons. it makes me wonder if you read your conservative article. It more than supports the claim that Obama made and I concurred with.

    I find it interesting that they are somewhat incomplete. While they do separate ‘attacks’ from ‘injuries’ and ‘fatalities’, they are somewhat inconsistent in applying them to years. however the trend is sharply lower since the 1990’s and percentage-wise sharply lower again since Obama took office.

    It would “appear”, if I were to make a bush era claim, which I am not, that Obama is keeping us safe from terrorism, a position supported by the report you quote from the heritage foundation.

    in this case reality does NOT suck, it’s rather encouraging. I’m sure you GOP’rs are quite upset that things are better under Obama.

    We would all be better off if we ignored the trolls (Ms. Ima, HOWGOZIT, Gore Bane, Brandon, etc.) … all they do is spew the same one-and-two-line bulsit on each page — rants that get under the skin of right-minded people … consider that either (1) none of them care any more than to hit-and-run like most who spray grafitti on any blank space, and don’t really care what anybody thinks, or (2) some right-wing/Tea Party sugah dadda pays them to spew this garbage, making them low-life freeloaders, just as they accuse everybody who actually employs actual thought processes before posting on the Internet.

    I would be VERY interested to see a DD214 proving more than three months of honorable service from any of these right-wing trolls … but I expect that could never happen …

    Just a couple of cents from a 20-year USMC (Ret) who earned a master’s degree in something other than a redneck agenda …

    the signing statements were Wbush abberations and an insult to the people of the USA. I don’t blame him.
