    First conviction unlikely to help Obama shut Gitmo

    By MATT APUZZO
    Associated Press Nov 18, 6:10 AM EST


    WASHINGTON (AP) - The first court conviction of a Guantanamo Bay detainee did little to push President Barack Obama closer to shuttering the island prison, making it increasingly likely his campaign promise will remain unmet by the time his current term expires.

    :clap2:

    Boo-Fucking-Hoo... And why is it again that he and his Lame Duck Congress can't just Close the thing?...

    He said he was gonna!... I heard him my damned self!

    Of course, I Knew he wasn't going to, no more than our Last Boot in Iraq won't be gone even after me, you and Obama have Left this Earth.

    Suckers! :lol:

    peace...

    No one cares about Gitmo anymore. Republicans arent in charge.

    Or Unmanned Drones that Kill Babies...

    Or Extraordinary Rendition...

    Or Expanded Invasions of Privacy...

    Or the Expansion of a War in Afghanistan when the Terrorists who Attacked us in 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia and Trained in the US... <Remember that Justification for Pooing on the Iraq War by the Left?

    Anyway...

    :)

    Seems a key witness couldn't be called. This witness who sold the dirtbag the explosives.

    Just another reason all these dirtbags should be tried by MT at Gitmo.

    Yeah... Liberal Judges Courtrooms who are Appointed by Liberal Politicians with an Agenda are not the Place for these Jihadists to be "Judged".

    Not true. As a civil libertarian Gitmo's continued existence is one of the bigger issues I have with Obama's presidency so far.

    Hey, don't expect me to defend the guy. :lol:

    Just because I take issue with the personal garbage doesn't mean I'm president of the fan club. ;)
