    :eek: Does anybody planning this war know what the hell they're doing??

    And to think that the Republicans run on a "strong defense" platform.

    Absolutely amazing. If this isn't misreporting, if this is factually correct, I think the Democrat who runs for president in 2008 just got a big, big boost.

    Oh, relax, it's not that bad. They probably get them to promise to behave nicely in future before they let them go.

    No. 90% of those held at Guantanamo had nothing to do with anything. They were sold to the US for $5,000 a head.

    We released them because they were too small. Don't you know that Fish and Wildlife requires that terrorists be at least 62 inches tall or you have to toss them back?

    Addressing the issue more directly, from her remarks, I don't see an indication of catch and blind release. I see catch and escape, catch and release to follow, catch and release as bait, or catch and release because at the time we didn't have evidence/knowledge of their activities. I would like to know where her hearsay ends and her theories begin...

    Lack of evidence doesn't seem to have stopped you in the past.

    Ah...

    Good point. Maybe this is part of a kinder, gentler, tribunal system. ;)
