  •  Then he should up hold (5+ / 0-)

    All of it, not just the parts he wants.
    He needs to go after war criminals and bank criminals.
    And follow International law. By not attacking Nations that pose no threat to the US. That means not using drones and killing over 2,000 innocent civilians.
    When he swore the Oath, is the Bill of Rights included?  
    If so, then he needs to stop DHS from going after people that are using their 1st Amendment Right.
    And defend the 4th, 5th and all the others he has ignored.

    Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?

      Sad it even has to be written, but accurate, and, in that sense, excellent.

        it is sad isn't it?
        And of course it didn't start with Gitmo, nor is it the only place and time it happened.

        Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?

          Some where in the files transferred from Mac, is the letter I sent to all the Senators on the whole fiasco of Iraq, abduction, torture, etc. "NOT in My Name" Added the names of my FiL, Army Air Corps, German POW 43-45, USAF 46-72, SAC wing commander; Dad, US Army, Pacific '44 -'46; Uncle Arthur, USN 42(~) - 46. (He went on to develop nuc missiles for nuc subs on Johns Hopkins team.)

          Connecting other dots. "Juvenile 'Detention Center'? How appropriate, Gitmo is also called a 'Detention Center'..."
