cman: hubiestubert: cman: [johnbardi.edublogs.org image 525x301]Yes, because Obama should pull out his magical time machine and use his Jedi Mind Trick to cause Bush and Company to NOT use extraordinary rendition and ask for "enemy combatant" status be used on criminals?It staggers the mind how obtuse and asinine one human can be, nearly 98% of the time. Please, let's make this partisan issue, because THIS list, it hasn't changed since the Bush years. And we've KNOWN that folks will never be able to be released, and have known this for some time, and oddly enough, some of us even realized this as soon as the "enemy combatant" tripe was bandied about, along with extraordinary rendition was used, that this was going to bite us on the ass. This is an issue that was created by a Congress and Administration that was afraid of due process, and now we are going to have to face that we've pooped in our own dog dish, but please, pass the buck along, because that will certainly help folks sleep better at night, instead of attempting to use some tiny modicum of thought.What bothers me on this issue, is that for years, folks have been ignoring this very point. Again and again, but NOW it is suddenly an issue, and looking to blame someone, they turn to the guy who was left with this stinking pile of kuso, instead of the festering and diseased Shetland pony that shat it out, and left it in Gitmo all this time...WOW what undue rageGuess what? I was for the Patriot act originally, but I turned against it in 2006 BEFORE Bush left office.
djkutch: "Many of the detainees designated for prosecution can only be prosecuted in civilian court," she said. "So unless Congress lifts the restrictions banning their transfer they are effectively 'indefinite detainees.'

flucto: Meet the new boss, same as the old boss
gadian: You know it was just a couple of days ago that the House voted once again for not allowing the closure of GITMO. Perhaps, if the members of the House - who, by virtue of shorter terms are more accessible to their constituents and thus more likely to push for what their constituents want - value fair trials for all, they should allow the facility to close and push for trials for every inmate. I'm sure this legislation will be presented any minute now. Yep, any minute now. Huh. I wonder if the problem is with the House or....the constituents.Checks and balances are supposed to work. Don't like indefinite detainees? Push for change. Don't stop until there is. Or you can allow your representatives to keep ignoring you.
cman: So that means I am automatically a Republican who believes that Obama has a time machine that he used to bring his mom for some unknown reason to Kenya to give birth to him?
Mugato: Guantánamo is the most farked up thing we've done against everything we claim to stand for since the Japanese internment camps.
fusillade762: Way too dangerous to be incarcerated on American soil, what with their scary Muslim supervillain powers.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I assume the list includes Lex Luthor, General Zod and Braniac?/I mean... these must be supercriminals, right?
Nabb1: Who gives a shiat if he once supported it? So care more about maintaining some smug sense of superiority rather than seeing more people that originally supported it change their minds and swing the political pendulum
Bonzo_1116: Phony_Soldier: Farking Bush!/Oh wait...Nope, it's the recent congresses that have been too chickenshiat to sign off on moving the detainees to the US for trial. The Obama administration has had a raging boner to try these guys in court, and congress gave them the finger. Bush and the cowering post-9/11 congress started this ugly stone down the curling lane, true---but ever since then rightwing assholes have been out there with the little brooms making sure that the stone just keeps going and going because they know what we will find when we actually try these guys in court is going to be bad. Like a finding a dead skunk under your porch bad.

Uzzah: I'm waiting for Obama to say "As Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, I am ordering all military personnel to unlock the cells, and then get on a plane out of Guantanamo. I may not be able to close it, but I can make damn sure that there's nobody there to operate it. Now the base and prisoners are Cuba's problem. Good night, and God Bless America."
