    Bush didn't give a flying crap about restrictions on Pentagon money when he transferred funds from Afghanistan accounts to the planning for the invasion of Iraq . Just a great big FU which the Congress slobbered all over him for.he didn't consult, just delivered a fait accompli.  He INVADED>

    None of the turds and deadbeats and bribed pissholes in congress will do anything but scream about terrarists! if obama does the right thing. they won't help.  So move the people cleared for release to a med security federal institution, figure out a way to get therse people to go to a non torture scenario country, and put up the rest in a Super Max with a trial schedule,. they are all on hunger strike because they are in limbo, with the feckless worthless Congress using Gitmo as a political football as if it is Obama's fault. He didn''t bring them there as a political prop, that was the bush baby and his Lie brary. now to be paid for its upkeep for by our tax dollars into infinity.  The first 550 million was all that tax breaks for billionaires being shoved back in our face.But
    their indefinite detention IS HIS DOING BY OMMISSION>

    I don't like how we are all collectively guilty of depriving people ten years of their lives, some of them an extra 3 because this President doesn't have a plan or the gumption to move on this. Just like Seligmann, a democrat rotting in a Alabama jail, these are people of little account forgotten by this Administration.

    how about burning a little political capital and selling it as mercy, not a scare, for the American people?

    I am tired of making excuses "'oooh, we are better than that...ooh, that is not  who we ar"r. damn straight that is who we are. A nation of political cowards.

      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?

      "Congress made a law forbidding transfer of inmates to the US" don't you get?

      “We are not a nation that says ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ We are a nation that says ‘out of many, we are one.’” -Barack Obama

        they are cleared but unreleased.    Or without a precleared
        destination transferees....but that is OK, you think human rights is for you and bullying is for everybody else.

        got it. thanks for your candour and self reveal.

        DK could use an "ignore" button.  You would be  that on my keyboard, goodnight.
