Held Without Trial For 11 Yrs.
President Barack Obama: You think you've got it bad? ...Try working with this Congress!
Never should have spent the billions to build "Gitmo’,and should have brought them here for trial as “criminals”, not “combatants”, and yes, Obama should have closed it with his first executive order and brought the truly “bad guys” here for trial. After all, Gitmo IS U.S. “territory” by treaty with Cuba when we gave them their freedom from Spain.
Perhaps if you idiot liberals would stop insisting we let these terrorists into the country for the last 50 years, this would not have happened.
Try reading some of the laws and executive actions he has passed.
That is his plan.
Exactly the reason why they are held overseas and not within any U.S. territory: to subvert the rule of law.
Gitmo could have been closed by now had Congress not passed a number of NIMBY laws.
If our courts can convict and our prisons can hold John Wayne Gacy, Timothy McVeigh, the Unabombr, and other crackpots and big-time criminals, they can do the same with Khalid Sheikh Muhammed. And wait until he meets his roommate, and the guys down the hall. He would wish he was back at Gitmo.
This congress is every bit as dangerous as our foreign enemies. The continued obstruction of all reasonable legislation proves that beyond all question.
That’s why they’re still being held without trial, RWNJ’s in the House.
great post mikefive! The problem of closing GITMO is NOT 1 state wants to take them. NIMBY! That means send them home. Either to one of their prisons if their country agrees they are indeed bad, or set them free, or turn them over to a country who will torture these people who have never been convicted of a crime.
Twisted and Perverted policies.The U.S. Constitution was written for AMERICAN CITIZENS.Islamic Jihadists are rarely citizens of the U.S.A.Combatants not in regular uniformed military, do not have International War “rights” and do not deserve treatment equal to American citizens’ rights.-“Gitmo” is American property, and a better internment site than any inside the 50 states of the USA. It protects our citizens and our society from suffering what Islamic Jihad is imposing on Israel and on citizens around the world.-Muslim Jihadists declare war on all “infidels” and America has been the target in this recent aggression beginning in 1979 in Iran, spread throughout the Moslem nations and increasing over time, with no Quitting deadline for bombers and assassins.-Modern “Faux” liberals have no interest in protecting Americans from irrational fanatics like the terrorists who plan and carry out attacks on civilians and almost never wage standard “war” on a nation’s military.-“Liberals” today coddle Jihadists, who are continuing the War of Conquest begun by Mohammed himself. Read history and see how using the Sword, the Moslem Empire was established by 730 A.D. from Spain to India, into Palestine and across North Africa. Muslims are taught that every inch of earth that ever belonged to a Moslem at any time is theirs to re-take and keep!
