    if it's being publically discussed...it's already going on. besides, there have already been stories of family members of " high value targets" being held captive for strategic reasons. of course, i believe they were officially detained " for their own protection". yea, right.

    As if our enemies didn't hate us enough already. Maybe we've just accepted that people hate us, that we think we can get away with anything we want. Geneva be damned!
