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.

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."

They should never have left the battlefield alive.

They should never have expanded the battlefield to include the entire surface of the earth.

Guantanamo Bay is a stain on our country. People are correct in seeing us as monsters because of it. Not only monsters, but hypocritical monters afraid of our own values when confronted with adversity.

Emposter: Mugato: Guantánamo is the most farked up thing we've done against everything we claim to stand for since the Japanese internment camps.

We've never stood for the things we claim to stand for.  The history of the US is one long string of the world being disappointed with us as we lag decades behind in various areas of human rights, economic policies, and basic provision of welfare services such as universal healthcare.

You know how we always talk about how the rest of the country is dragging the South into the 20th century kicking and screaming?  We are to the rest of the civilized world what the South is to the rest of the US...except the rest of the world lacks the power to drag us anywhere, which somehow makes us the winners.  Or something.

Errr...21st century, although really, they both kinda work.

FTFA: According to the list, the men designated for indefinite detention are 26 Yemenis, 12 Afghans, 3 Saudis, 2 Kuwaitis, 2 Libyans, a Kenyan, a Moroccan and a Somali.

Well, at least Obama doesn't play favorites.

Hetfield: cman: I was for the Patriot act originally


Look, he got better. Some people still haven't. Some people learn at a slower pace than others.

/Also, you're supposed to reward good behavior. Give him a treat when he does right. Don't yell at him for past mistakes, he doesn't understand why you're upset NOW.

Yup. Way too dangerous to be incarcerated on American soil, what with their scary Muslim supervillain powers.
