    We did lose the moral high ground...we were immoral in some of our treatment of prisoners throughout this entire war imo. And this is what started people, even republicans, and sincere followers of Christ, against president Bush...along with the handling of Katrina...the high ratings plummeted on president bush right as Abu Ghraib pictures surfaced....then the focus on treatment in guantanamo.

    We need to let these detainees loose in the Blue States.

    The view is better from the moral high ground but it is much easier to fly planes into it.

    Being very aware that high ranking military officers and politicians always have some ulterior motive when "coming out" with "revelations" or opinions I never take anything they say at face value.
    I wonder if he's planning on writing a book?

    Another case of the Marines only needing "A few good men", this is obviously not one of the good men

    Actually, the US didn't lose the moral high ground... Detainees at Gitmo were and remain being treated better than criminals serving time in US prisons.

    The ideological left fostered a pretense of such... and the ideological Left has no principle of Morality against which such a notion can rest.

    They're liars... they already loathe America; and their cohronic desire to change America should be all anyone needs to recognize that.

    I'm not surprised you would take a reporters word for anything. You do know that the Major General's words were taken out of context.

    "I think it is extraordinarily important how we treat prisoners,"

    No where in any of his quotes did he say anything about "brutal treatment of prisoners".

    You people are so fucking stipud!!!

    Why don't you do your patriotic duty (and save the rest of us the job), and volunteer to go shot the prisoners. No muss, no fuss. No loose ends.
