Why Don't You Like Gitmo
Because I hate Bush and Obama doesn't like Gitmo.
One of Obama's first official acts as President was to issue an executive order closing Gitmo within 1 year. Many on the left has classified the detention of the detainees as unlawful and called for criminal charges to be filed against Bush and those in his administration. Obama's self imposed deadline comes up in less than 4 months and no plans have been outlined as to what happens to the detainees currently being held there. If this deadline passes with no action from Obama will there be a call for his indictment and impeachment from the left?
Whats GITMO :singing:
You've asked this question about ten different ways in the last six months, i think its time you retired it. :bricks:
It was on the news today that they won't be closing it on that deadline or anytime soon.
Now your getting it, good work.........
Then I shall keep an eye open for articles by Jason Leopold about Super Secret Sealed vs. Sealed indictments that implicate Obama.
1) You are either a criminal or a POW, nothing in between IMO.
2) Sooner or later it would be nice to develop some sort of amicable relationship with Cuba. It would be easier to do that if we weren't warehousing dangerous people there who absolutely can't be brought into the US.
So what repucusions should Obama face if he chooses to not make a decision? Does it violate US law? Does it violate Internatioan Law and if so are we bound by International Law?
Smarmy much? We see what you're trying to do here. Pretend one vague issue concerning the left-leaning leader somehow equals the entirety of Bush League corruption. Yeah, not quite.
Get back to us when the Obama team purges 6 million WH emails, fires US attorneys in mid-term, lies the country into a foreign occupation, signs off on torture, outs a COVERT intel agent, "suicides" a half-dozen witnesses to their corruption, ignores countless subpoenas, blocks congressional investigations into the greatest crime in U.S. history, deregulates oversight for 'friendly' financial entities, and on and on and on.
Sorry, ... we understand you hate the progressive black C-in-C, but he has a long, LONG way to go to instill the kind of mistrust and disgust that the alcoholic from Crawford managed. That's why we wanted them impeached... Their whole body of work, not one issue.
What is the impeachable offense??? Or are you just wishing and a hoping that Biden can become president and Pelosi can move up a rung???
Because it was a favorite among the Bush Haters when he was in office the word "Gitmo" was in the news daily "Close Gitmo" was all we heard, democrat politicians were constantly going down there then they would come home, hold a big left wing news conference and start Crying, WHERE ARE THEY NOW, GITMO IS STILL OPEN AND GITMO WILL STAY OPEN FOR MANY MANY YEARS.
WHERE THE HELL IS SEAN PENN AND LOONEY CLOONEY
Well he actually has made a decision, he wants it closed. However he's President, not dictator, so if Congress won't go along that's where it stops. I'm no lawyer. I couldn't tell you if it violates US law or not. Common sense says that if it was a clear and unarguable violation Bush wouldn't have opened it in the first place. So I'd say it lies in some complex gray area.
I don't really care that much about international law. If a law is valid and useful enough it ought to be a regular, national law and enforced that way IMO.
It wasn't just Gitmo as a place - it was Gitmo as a symbol of a country which was rapidly turning into something other than fair and even-handed.
Yes, Gitmo as a prison still exists - but Gitmo as an institution where torture took place regularily and where people were consistantly denied basic American human rights no longer exists.
So, even though the physical prison still exists, the symbolic institution where Bush and Chaney proved they were no better rulers than anyone else, and perhaps quite worse than some, no longer does.
It could be closed in a week, fly the inmates up to America and put them in a Real Prison why won't the Phony Get Bush Democrats do it they did enough Blubbering and Sobbing about closing it when the Hated Bush was running the show, CLOSE THE GOD DAMNED PLACE, NOW.
GET BUSH (he beat us, twice)........:singing:
