Shutting down Guantanamo apparently was just a phony campaign promise from Obama to the radical left, as were some of his other foreign policy promises in the 2008 presidential campaign.It's bad to make phony promises; but what gets me even more is the anxiety he creates in all the people who understand the stakes and what things would be like if he DID keep his promises.Jim M.
You would think that the closing of this cruel and inhumane torture center would be a no-brainer for Roman Catholics.Sadly,American Catholics discuss and debate this issue rather then be the shinging light of compassion we should be.Some of these innocent civilians have been held captive for over 7 years without due process.They are deprived of seeing families and most beg to be brought to trial knowing they are mere political pawns in this insane war on terror.We should as a country be ashamed of what we have done to these political innocent victims.Little wonder they hate us so...elliot
Let me remind everyone that Elliot is a regular poster who always has the same thing to say and despite repeated offers for him to come on the air and defend his positions, he continually refuses and instead sits at his computer and lobs bombs onto the blog. The offer stands elliot if you are man enough. I'm not sitting on the edge of my seat though.
