Suspected Terrorists

on

BY KAREN WEBB

I heard it again on some show last night. The person was referring to the closing of Gitmo and he said, “What will be doing with the terrorists who are at Gitmo?”

At the very worst they are suspected terrorists. Most have been detained for seven years without ever being charged. If there was proof then they should have been charged. Seven years is called a sentence, not a detention.

If they are not convicted of terrorism then they are suspected terrorists. The only reason those 250 are there and not in the U.S. is because the Bush Administration wanted to circumvent every law regarding justice in the Constitution or anywhere else.

I am with the Cubans on closing the Navy base, as well. The agreement from 1904 is crazy. If we had let the Cubans use Key West for 104 years for $2,000 a year, U.S. citizens would be raising hell.

Give Cuba back to the Cubans.

  1. There are also the dork nozzles (I heard the term on Rachel’s show — Google it) who publicly fret about released “terrorists” going back to the battlefield.

    Let’s suppose every one of them did. That would increase the enemy’s total strength by what — one percent? Maybe?

    We’re creating many more terrorists throughout the world by keeping Gitmo open, and depriving Muslim detainees of their civil rights.

    It’s the well-educated foreigners, those who speak English and know about America, who are most offended by the contrast between our professed beliefs and our actions. And these are precisely the people we do NOT want to turn into terrorists.

  2. I agree, Karen. Jim Inhofe has called them the “worst of the worst terrorists” while praising the prison. Yet when the Bush administration released several hundred of these “terrorists,” including three 13- to 15-year-olds, over the years, Inhofe never squeaked a peep. A true moral relativist.
