    They shouldn’t detain them, they should be treated according to the Geneva Convention!

    Of course, the Geneva Convention says they can be shot on sight….

    about a year ago, I remember listening to some report from a former national security guru, I don’t recall who it was, but they’re opinion on BO was that if he was elected almost nothing would change in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Gitmo. his argument was that once BO was shown all of the available information and not what little he was privy to as a Senator, his opninions on national security would change dramatically. It made a lot of sense and since the election has pretty much been playing out as predicted.

    “cannot be charged or released”

    I do not understand this statement. The actual truth would be that “the administration does not wish to charge or release the prisoners”. Plain and simple.

    I’m not against fighting terrorists, and I’m more than willing to forgive mistakes (civilian deaths on the battlefield where the enemy does not wear a uniform and the civilians don’t take an active roll in routing out the enemy; instead hiding, feeding and supporting them) but this is absolute bull crap.

    They’re either POWs or being held for crimes yet charged, and if the answer is the latter you’ll have a damn hard time at this point telling me that you can give them a fair and speedy trial.

    There is no special magic third category, no matter how many executive orders or signing statements you pull out of your ass.
