    75% Oppose Release of Guantanamo Inmates in the US
    This is a response to IbalLSUfaninVA's post here

    I think if you would have phrased the question "Should we keep people who have committed no crime locked up indefinitely because no country wants to take them", you would have gotten a different response. I don't think we should release them, either, I think we should give them each $100,000 for each year we've unjustly kept them locked up and instead of "releasing them into the U.S." we should put them on a private plane, and then on a limo, to the U.S. location of their choice, and offer them free security details for the next 10 years to ensure no idiot rednecks decide to kill them.


    That's what I think. But then again, I guess I hate America since I don't want to keep innocents locked up for the rest of their lives simply because its unpopular to "release" them.

    Its a bit of a jump to call Gitmo prisoner's innocent men; and the original poll report was

    "75% Oppose Release of Guantanamo Inmates in the United States"

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/pub...se_of_guantanamo_inmates_in_the_united_states

    Which is also a bit different than say they want them kept locked up.

    But I also found it somewhat disturbing that a large portion of the American public had no problem with folks being locked up indefinitely just on the basis of accusations without trials or proof.

    I know it may sound a bit hokey, but I'm of the belief that one is innocent until proven guilty.

    I think I know my own beliefs better than you, thank you. I'm of the belief one is innocent until proven guilty regardless of national origin or present geographic location.

    And sorry, but due process under the Constitution isn't restricted to only Americans. You must be either be completely ignorant of the law or lying.

    Sorry, but you're wrong. I guess you've never heard of Rasul v. Bush. But now you have, so if you continue to insist your falsehood is true, it will be out of stupidity and not ignorance.

    Fair enough - but there is also a difference between being presumed innocent and actually being innocent.
