And how many did Georgie boy Bush put to death as governor of Texas?
Reaks of holy baloney here.
I support the death penalty in Texas and any othe state after indisputable proof of guilt has been submitted...without a doubt.. I wouldn't want anyone walking around who murdered my child,husband, friend,grandparent,,,or any human on this earth,,just for the hell of it. Think about it.. imagine your little boy or girl being brutally raped and killed , then tell me you think the same.. Before making statements as yours above, put yourself in the shoes of the victims family.. I know it won't bring them back, but that jerk who did that to a family member or friend or any human on earth , wouldn't inhale another life of breath.

My god people, you are condemning before researching! Who are we to judge..? This is all political!!!! Instead of ranting off your judgement how about doing a little research your self...try typing in : lybia hiv...read some news articles before passing judgement....The president is always a scapegoat.. Notice in majority of the articles(news) that the US is not the only country that Bulgaria is pleading for help from....please just be more informed before reacting.

This is crazy. Obviously the President made that statement with the belief in mind that these nurses were not guilty of intentionally infecting those children with AIDS. I sincerely doubt that they knowingly did such an evil thing. Furthermore, even if there was some neglect on the nurses' part they still don't deserve to be executed by firing squad.
Do we know that these nurses were given a fair trial? Was all of the relevent evidence displayed and were all those with knowledge of the matter allowed to testify? I don't blame the President one bit for bringing this up. Obviously its an important issue to the Bulgarians and their leader (a US ally) and the President was doing them the diplomatic favor of putting an international spotlight on this situation. This was clearly a gesture of friendship and partnership that a President is expected to, and should, give to a visiting foreign leader.
If there was any legitimate evidence pointing to the premeditated actions of knowingly infecting children with HIV by these nurses, then the President of the United States certainly wouldn't be given the green light by his advisors to defend such criminal acts. There must truly be a belief that these nurses are being railroaded.
