Quash the lawbreakers who worked there, but don't close the prison.

They wage war again us therefore how can they not qualify? Uniforms are kinda funny to use as your biggest reason since if you recall during the Vietnam war the Vitcong did not wear uniforms. warfare has evolved both in weapons and uniforms and such. This is not like in the past where you could tell who your enemy was. So they are enemy combatants and the Geneva Convection is in effect. It was written back in the late 1940's by the way.

We should not clsoe GETMO. Obama in my opinion is an idiot who never wore a military uniform. These guys are military combatents and should be dealt with by the military tribunal. But then you have some of our Supreme Court Judges who think they have constitional rights. Wher they came up with that I don't know brcause they are not American citizens. We have people in this country that don't realize we have to protect and defend our freedom. Instead we are allowing foriegners dictate how we run our country. Its a shame that this new administration wants to turn tail and run.

Obama hasn't released anyone. That would be Bush that set terrorist free. Obama wants to send them to other prisons.

When Obama starts setting terrorist free then you can talk. Till then it's on Bush.

I think they should ship the prisoners all of them to Hollywood with all the actors and actresses that supported Obama. Maybe they should all be put up at the Beverly WIlshire Hotel, down by Rodeo Drive. Make sure they are treated with kid cloves and five star service. Now that would be just perfect and for cruel and unusual punishment, they should have Barry Manillow and Barbra Streisand sing to them.

I don't know if closing the prison is synonomous with releasing the prisoners. Sending terrorists to American prisons might be far worse for "detainees" than the interrogation and other "injustices" that they are subjected to at Guantanamo. I say let these terrorists be locked up next to some convicted skinhead murderer and observe what follows.

I saw on the news the Supermax Prison in Colorado may be getting some terrorists. Guess what is the only other city in America with a Supermax Prison:

That's right:

Thanks a lot Valley Democrats for electing a man that will put TERRORISTS IN OUR OWN BACKYARD!

Who says all the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay are terrorists? Many of them are people that have been arrested for just being "suspected of......", never charged with anything and detained for upwards of 6 years without access to any legal representation. Or do you just blindly believe everything you're fed? It could happen to you or I on the whim of a police officer. Just imagine - you're walking down the street one day, stopped by the cops just cos your face doesn't fit, and, for a reason no one will tell you, detained for x amount of years out of your life. If that doen't smack of Franz Kafka's "The Trial" nothing does.

Maybe we can build a new facility for them here in Youngstown at the brownfields on Poland Avenue.

Those of the Jihadist Brotherhood at GITMO are anxiously awaiting the so called superior intellectual capacity of Obama to spring them free. After the criticism of shutting GITMO down dies off his catch and release program will have come full circle.

Hussein wants to chat with the terrorists, he thinks that will fix everything. He wants to be buddies. Isn't that special.....(gag me)

Qual, you don't reason with these terrorists. If your Messiah Hussein thinks he can change the fact that they have a jihad out for us, he's dreaming. Talk, talk, see where it gets him (and the likes of you). So where IS HE GOING TO STICK the terrorist prisoners anyway. He is tying the hands of our military with the shenanigans he has come up with since taking office. Have you recently spoken to anyone of the "boots on the ground" guys about this?
You got your Socialist President, so you should be soooo happy. I was never too crazy about Bush, but in comparison to Hussein, he was a jewel.

Quail(would that be Dan by any chance)...lol, you bet I criticized Bush - when he wanted amnesty for the illegals and on the bailout - i was totally against both. I sent many e-mails to him and all the rest of the bums back then. Bush turned into a liberal and was not much better than any Democrat I've ever know. So now do you feel better? Bush let us down, but what Hussein is doing now is almost treasonous. The crooked Chicago machine, buddies tied to terrorists, cabinet member who don't' know what they are doing and are tax evaders. I have no respect, none whatsoever!!!!

Clark: Mousepad? Seriously?

I'd love to get a quick survey done of the number of college degrees awarded in this forum.

How many of you have F-150s but never tow anything? How about Confederate flags waving? How many of you are scared of non-white folks? How many of you have actually know a Muslim? How many of you are afraid to learn about any beliefs other than Christianity? How many of you think God wants America to be the Greatest Country on Earth? Anyone here read books? CAN anyone here read books?

I love Youngstown.

Count me in for two college degrees. I tow my camper with my F-150. I've taught in Saudi, Indonesia, Algeria, Azerbaijan, and Nigeria (those are dominantly Muslim countries in case you don't know).

And God doesn't take sides but has allowed this to become one of the greatest, if not the greatest country ever. And I've been, and/or lived in, quite a few.

So, if a mouse-pad slip occurs, don't denigrate the "slip-er" who at least writes intelligibly.

It has only been three weeks and already the posts are better than I could have possibly imagined. It is going to be a wild 8 years.

Anyone care to add some partisan rhetoric about SCHIP?

I usually do not correct people but in the case of stupidity. Obama is elected for only for years, you will have vote for him [many times] to get him in for 8 years.
