  •  So, we never let ANY prisoner out of jail? (2+ / 0-)

    It seems to be a new Cheneyite talking point that x% of those already released from Guantanamo have "returned to the battlefield." From the evidence I've seen the claim itself is questionable. But if it's true, how is this a point in favor of Cheney and the Bush administration?

    So, does Darth Cheney think that we should never parole any prisoners?  Because, the recidivism rate is pretty abysmal in the US, so it's likely that they will commit another crime.  Plus, last I noticed, none of these people has even had a trial.  Obama needs to tell Mueller to put up or shut up and get these people out of Guantanamo.  This will be our eternal shame until we deal with it.

    •  He probably does believe that... (0+ / 0-)

      so your clever rebuttal would probably not work.
