It's Bush's fault these changes are taking so long, and every other President before him too. You can't just disregard the Constitution and rescind the Declaration of Independence overnight. All that takes time.

Tanslation: It's alot easier to promise a load of B.S. on the campaign trail, much harder to actually implement and deliver when you have to deal in reality.

Number of Ex-Gitmo Prisoners Rejoining Terror Higher Than Reported


The number of ex-Guantanamo detainees who have gone back to terrorism is much larger than the government is letting on.

A senior intelligence official, who has access to some of the country's top secrets, tells HUMAN EVENTS that some Pentagon analysts actually believe 102 former enemy combatants have returned to terror -- not 61 as publicly reported by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

That would mean that of 520 terrorists released from the Guantanamo Bay prison, nearly 20 percent returned to the practice of killing to achieve their radical view of Islam.

The number is gaining importance in light of the fact that President Obama has announced he intends to close the Guantanamo facility. This means scores of additional detainees not deemed releasable by the Pentagon -- at least until now -- will be sent back to their home countries. It also sends a signal to countries now holding ex-Guantanomo prisoners that it might be OK to release them, too.

Why the discrepancy between 102 and 61?

"He told college students in Istanbul: "I have no sympathy and I have no patience for people who would go around blowing up people for a political cause.""

Heh. That is, unless they write cutsy stuff like:

"Revolutionary war will be complicated and protracted. It includes mass struggle and clandestine struggle, peaceful and violent, political and economic, cultural and military, where all forms are developed in harmony with the armed struggle.
Without mass struggle there can be no revolution.
Without armed struggle there can be no victory."

Then it's OK to blow things up for a political cause.

"President Barack Obama says it will take time for the world to see how he is leading America in a different direction from his predecessor" Obama is like the Pied Piper of Hamlin, and we are rats following him to our death and we fall off the cliff.
yada yada yada

A little at a time. The morons won't feel it, or see it, until it's too late.
Just like the current illegal alien situation. Too late to whine now.

Whats the Constitution?? Oh yeah...that thing that is supposed to dictate how the country is managed...that most have forgotten...currently being disregarded. You should not be able to disregard the Constitution, but too many acting like girls screaming to Davy Jones and the rest of the monkees,sit back with love in their eyes, drooling stupidly while Brittney, I mean Barack Obama continues his reality series. This continues to become more and more astoundingly pathetic. Worse, it is likely in a few months we can see AmyKlo AND Frankenstien both following Obama around like yapping little Yorkies, grinning stupidly. Ugh..how sickening.

Our arrogant far left crackpot puke Socialist/Marxist President has effectively neutered the United States by his actions and spoken words! This arrogant puke of an atheist avoided the American cemetery at Normandy explaining he did not want to offend the Germans. He apologized to Europeans the other day stating he was apologizing for America’s arrogance! This poser is an embarrassment to US citizens and we should demand that he apologize to the American citizens and our soldiers! What a puke!!!!!

Obama is an embarrassment to the office he holds.He can not accept criticsm or responsibility.Everything that is wrong he blames on George Bush and anything that is good he takes credit for it.He is setting an awful example for the youth of America.
