can someone remind me why guantanamo is a bad thing?
Because liberal/democrats did not think of it first.
maybe this should be in politics, i wazzant sure. holder's name came up this morning with mention of the ksm trial in nyc. rep king thinks that obama pulled the idea's plug. but do people think that it's a world perception problem? then i think, how else to deal with enemy combatants. it's a facility that is world class in detention, and probably for having a trial. it all seems in perfect order to me.
like hell it isn't...
putting people into an internment camp, without charging them with any crime or act and never trying them violates everything we pretend to stand for.

It's no worse than you being to lazy to capitalize letters in your sentences or misspelling wasn't.
Up until the so called War on Terror.
America held the high ground when it came to Human Rights and a just legal system.
Most people around the world looked to the U.S. as a role model in this area.

But most conservatives never bother to read it.
Last time I was in GITMO, I was stationed aboard the USS SYLVANIA (AFS-2). Went to the EM Club for some beers and bingo. A HM2, also stationed aboard the USS SYLVANIA, won a Honda motorcycle playing bingo. I was sitting right beside him and we were both about 2/3's shitfaced. We thought GITMO was an ok place at the time.
Addition to story: Have you ever seen two drunk sailors trying to push a motorcycle down to the pier from the EM Club? It's an ugly picture.
Oh, they read it. They just ignore it when it suits their authoritarian purposes to do so.
