    are the lone voices attempting to dispute this number, so we must support them. I heard on NPR or someplace yesterday that some GOP Senators, like John "Cornhole" Cornyn, are drafting legislation barring any freed detainees from Gitmo coming to the United States. Granted, I don't want anyone "dangerous" or who had an active role in planning out the 9/11 attacks to be running around free, but that was never going to happen. An increasing amount of evidence is demonstrating the vast majority of the people down there are guilty of only being at the wrong place at the wrong time or pi$$ing off the wrong person.

      the torture and humiliation they've endured for 8 years.  These are people who have been denied/ isolated from any information about what's gone on in the world for the last 8 years of their lives.

      Yes, just where is the verification that "61" released detainees have gone on to fight the US? Do we have mug shots???  Have they made public service announcements informing the US of who they are and what they have done?

      I always groan at announcements claiming terrorists, enemy combatants, "x" number of Al Queda leaders (usually The Number Two Leader) have been killed.  When a remote village or house populated with families...too often wedding events with who knows how many civilians present...has been obliterated by aerial drones?  Who goes in to dig through and identify the bloody pulp that was only hours before living human beings?

      I watched kit Bond (R-MO) blathering about Gitmo in an interview a day or two ago. He and his ilk are imbeciles.
