    if he is going to close gitmo, where is he going to put them? another gitmo like place but with another name? and he flat out admits that some will not recieve a trial....more false promises by the messiah....


    ...There are currently 241 people held at the detention center at the U.S. military base in Cuba. Holder said some will be released, some will be put on trial, and some "are going to be detained on a fairly extended basis."

    Holder tells senators terrorists won't be set free - Capitol Hill- msnbc.com

    Yeah I'm against that. They should all be tried in some fashion to prove there is a basis for keeping them locked up.

    The response from the Left should be interesting.

    Not near the top of my worry list. I'm sure they'll figure it out.

    Where did you see that Obama or Holder "flat out admits that some will not recieve a trial"?

    More false accusations from the far right?

    Whatever makes most sense. I'm OK with a military tribunal if it has the components to be a fair trial.

    They should be held indefinitely as long as there is a war going on. Oh wait I forgot it's not a war it's a global contingency operation. Obama put the cart before the horse and is just realizing it. Uuuhhh. . . . .
