  •  They justify it by calling them terrorists (8+ / 0-)

    Despite the fact that many are just Gay men sold to the US for the bounty.

    •  I admit, I had to think about your comment for (8+ / 0-)

      a second.  

      Yes, many men who were accused of being terrorists were simply enemies of someone who wanted the bounty $$$ that the US was offering without a smidgen of proof for anyone who'd turn in an annoying neighbor or local outcast.  Hell-of-a-lot of justice in that.

      Obama is holding onto George W's ill-gotten gain for what?  The majority of the final, what is it now, 180? men being held are not known to have participated in anything at all against the United States.

      And, for what it is worth, we invaded Afghanistan. Anyone who fought to defend their country against foreign invaders is not automatically a "terrorist."   The Bush administration and the gung-ho military/CIA invasion made no qualms about simply sweeping people up and imprisoning them to show off their manhood.

      Obama's lack of desire and inability to "look back" is what is causing him many problems today.  If he'd applied a critical eye to the policies of the past administration, he could have saved himself a lot of grief over many things.
