    population who make KSM and others seem like Pee-Wee Herman I really am amazed as the fuss the Right makes over this. If you want documentation watch MSNBC friday nights.

    •  They want a lawless facility. (0+ / 0-)

      This isn't about the detainees being too dangerous.  It's about support among Republicans for having a prison in which the U.S. Constitution and federal law regarding the treatment of prisoners doesn't apply.

      Obama closed down the black sites.  We're leaving Iraq, and will be leaving Afghanistan (with Baghram) in a few years.  That will leave Guantanamo as the only off-shore detention facility.

      Art is the handmaid of human good.
