Good point.
And I'd absolutely feel guilty about suggesting it, if the retards threatening us had been around when the Amendments were drawn up.
It's time to stop nit-picking, pettifogging ( YES LOOK THAT UP), and all the political correctness c**p, and decide that actually we want to protect our nations. Or maybe we should just say that Sharia law is fine and dandy right now? Play time is over, decide. Accept or fight.
Comprendez?



We're talking about U.S Citizens in Gitmo on Terrorist Charges. For one, Charges aren't convictions. Two, it's against the Constitutional Rights of all U.S. Citizens to do it.

But like always you're willing to give up your Rights for the illusion of Safety. Amazing just how easy it is and how reliable a tactic that has been for so long.

The way I see it, actions speak louder than words. You should be more outraged with Obama because he actually could have done something about it but hasn't.



Right, Obama has had nearly 8 years to so something. But, Obama is more worried about vacationing and his golf swing apparently. Another Oligarch that will say anything to get elected and then do nothing. Obama is a failure as a president.

Do you honestly think Obama can do that without approval from Congress?

Get real.

Do you realize that this topic isn't about Obama failing to close it after 8 years. But about Trump wanting to keep it open, bring back torture and send U.S. Citizens there who are charged with Terrorism.

You can see the difference in those two very different topics correct???

THESE are NOT US citizens. These are enemy combatants in a war. They can get their trials when the war is over and the intelligence assets are no longer in harm's way.

There are no US citizens at GTMO. The only one that was there, had renounced his citizenship and ran to Afghanistan to help them fight the evil US...

Both actually, but the former is FAR more common. There were very few people who ever went to GTMO that weren't a part of a terrorist organization prior to being taken there. There have been a couple of instances of these people turning to terror after being released.

Far more common though, were host countries agreeing to incarcerate them if we returned them and then releasing them instead and them going right back to terrorism. Of course, the countries who did this are the ones that you'd expect though... Syria, Lybia, Egypt...

The Constitution as far as a right to due process goes applies to enemy combatants. This was decided by the Supreme Court in 2004 in the case Rasul vs Bush. The government simply didn't comply with the ruling.

LOL our treatment of them? You don't know what you're talking about. Most of them sang like birds to us because we gave them pizza and mcdonald's while their leadership forced them to starve themselves or be murdered by their fellow inmates.

I guess you aren't aware of most of them going out and playing soccer, and some of them being allowed to live in bungalows and having limited internet access.

How we treated them...lol.

Those of us that were part of the JTF used to take turns using their doctors when they weren't scheduled for appointments for the detainees because the doctors we provided for them were so much better than those we had for ourselves.

Funny how skewed your viewpoint is when you get all your information from MSM disinformation sources...lol

Master Jaden

Do you think Gitmo should be closed?

I personally think we are only at the beginning.

That people are being emotional, when they should be realistic about the future.

Getting doctors, food, and shelter makes up for being imprisoned? That causes resentment to build up. They were on starvation protests, forced feeding, regularly scheduled enema's to hydrate them, and so on despite the apparently good treatment. Ever wonder why?

They were on starvation protests because their leadership threatened to KILL them otherwise...lol...

And yes, we weren't like the UK with IRA hunger strikers, we didn't just LET them DIE.. No, we fed them intravenously and took care of them even when they didn't want to themselves.
