Quote# 57311

President Obama issued a draft document today calling for a 120-day suspension of the Gitmo military tribunals. The draft also calls for the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to be closed within the year. Closing the facility "would further the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States and the interests of justice," reads the draft prepared for the new president's signature. So the coddling of Muslim terrorists begins less than 24 hours after the Inauguration. Is this change for a safer America?

You don't know if they are terrorists, you just know that they are Muslims.

Denying basic human rights to people because they are a part of a certain religion will NOT make other people of that religion more friendly towards you.

Giving them fair trials and treatment that goes in accordance with the Geneva Convention is a positive step for safety of your country.

It's a reversion to an America that practices simple human dignity.

Oh noes..RetardPedia it's not like any sane person care about what they say.

Men were put into detention without trial and held without the ability to get a lawyer. Not all of them are terrorists.

It's conservapedia. Mark "5" and move on.

You violate a person's fundamental rights when you arrest them without charge or trial. You're the ones who keep whining you're being persecuted and your rights are being violated -- can't you allow the government to respect other people's rights as well?

Maybe, maybe not. But it is a change for a better America.

So refusing to torture Muslims is coddling them?

It just makes us look less like inhumane bullies.

Conservapedia - the mighty bastion of teh stupid in the intertubes.

I'm sorry jerk, is having a prison/army base for your most "dangerous terrorists" based in another country (a former enemy I might add) in the interests of justice?

It's high time the US got the fuck out of Cuba. Should've been removed a long time ago, but wasn't because the Americans wanted a nice convenient base to attack the Commie Cubans if need be.

Go put your goddamn prisoners back on your own soil America.

The treating of alleged terrorists as human beings entitled to the due process of law is 'coddling' now?
And this is something that crapopedia is opposed to?

Yes because holding and torturing people off-shore without evidence or fair trials for indefinite periods of time is truly one of the shining principles of the land of the free, the home of the brave.

1/31/2009 12:03:12 AM


Let me guess, if we don't get attacked in the next 4 years, it's because the terrorists wont attack us while one of them are in charge?

You know, I don't think they're even pretending to maintain the tone of an encyclopaedia anymore.

If you're so fucking sure they're terrorists, how come a lot of them haven't even been charged or sentenced yet?

1/31/2009 1:04:23 PM


Hmm... no 'terrrrist' attacks on American soil since the order. Democratic elections in Iraq that have gone off without a hitch (mostly), ceasefire agreements between Israel and Gaza. Yup seems to have worked to me. Asshat.

1/31/2009 4:59:46 PM


Well, we've been coddling Christian terrorists all along, why not throw in a few Muslims too!

How is it coddling terrorists? For that matter how have you determined that every single person imprisoned in Guantanamo is a terrorist when even the US government itself has been unable to do so?

It didn't say they were going to release them. Frankly speaking, keeping the prison at Guantanamo open would only further degrade the US in the eyes of the world. How is it coddling to give them the same rights and trials that we ourselves would demand rather than a flawed commission system that allows questionable evidence but disallows the very possiblity of a finding of innocence?

Is this change for a safer America?

Considering that Gauntanamo is known throughout the world as a place where america tortures muslims, yes it makes us safer. It removes one of the primary issues that angers muslims and motivates them to take up arms. Closing Gitmo makes americans safer from ourselves also, as long as there is a system in place where anyone can be imprisoned without charge or trial then that system can be used against american citizens.

It's March 2011 and Gitmo's still open.
Conservapedia lies again.
