This proves that liberals just LOVE TERRORISTS.

Liberals hate their own country and are treasonous seditous traitors.

Libeals are eno good, evil, immoral, Godless dope smoking, socialist scumbags.

When that coward Obama takes over, look for the Muslim terrorists to hit. Praise Allah that it be a liberal city like NY, SF or LA.

How is it that they don't even have to appear and they are not arrested and brought in handcuffs, If it was you or me that was the focus of this investiagation we would be standing in front of this judge in cuffs. You see really the system does not work if your average it caters to the rich and powerfull.

Amen

Perhaps we should round all the Liberals up and ship their rear ends to IRAQ so they can see these garbage sacks killing Americans. They'd kill everyone one of us so quick our heads would spin! Then of course drop off because they slit our throats

Idiots like you are the poor Americans, you're no "Patriot", you're just a stinking piece of illiterate crap that needs to be flushed. You're dragging the rest of society down.

Hi New... I was teaching high school when Watergate began quietly and without any fanfare. And one day, James McCord flipped and it exploded onto the scene and lead to the President of the U.S. bailing under the cloud of impeachment. This is worse... The smallest spark could start it off..

It's time to put Cheney's a-ss in jail and assign him to busting up rocks with a sledgehammer.

Do you actually believe this. If this case was in actuality other than fraudulently inerrant, there would be validity to your argument. Think about this...if something was to came of this, that every politician, state or local person holding any office would be subject to frivolous accusation or suit contending that irregularities superseded normal institutional law. The problem is that democratic leaning individuals as yourself aren't intelligent enough for comprehending ramifications of actions of persons like this. If you notice, and probably you have not, it is only democrats that pursue these types of irresponsibly negligible contentions through those frivolous means.

I think it might have slipped your mind that the Clinton impeachment was driven by Republicans. In addition, you imply this charge is frivolous. The courts make that decision before charging and arraigning a defendent. In the end it may be that you are right and Cheney is innocent, but how would you know that without hearing the evidence underlying the charge?

People who are sympathetic to these terrorist prisoners need to realize that they don't care. They don't care if you think they should be treated like kings while in prison. They don't care if you are against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They hate you and think you deserve to die just as much as they hate the soldiers over there. Their hate is as strong for you as it is for any non muslim. If they had their way they would slit your throat just as fast as they would anyone else's. They aren't going to ask you if you are sympathetic towards their treatment in prison. They are going to see you as a non muslim who needs to die. They hate you and you will never change that. Maybe if you were to go there and spend a little time in one of their prisons you would change your tune. Oh and no one would care or even hear about the type of grotesque torture you would endure.

Is how they are going to waste my taxes the next 4 years? Trying to put Bush and Dathr Cheney in prison. Good grief, I think there is an economy to fix and child rapists on the loose that may take a little higher priority. What a bunch babies trying to show Cheney that they are important also.

10 billion dollars a month of our taxes are spent on Iraq. America needs those dollars now to rebuild our economy. Saving a negligible amount by ignoring potential criminal acts by high level officials undercuts the principles on which our country was founded. These people desrve the same form of justice that any American would receive, not a kind of royal treatment because of their so called status.

Time for Cheney to fry in the fat of his own crap for at least something . A tighter case against him would be when Cheney shotgunned that lawyer during ill fated hunting trip.

Arraigned for, "... Responsibility for prisoner abuse in a federal detention center.", are you kidding me?!! Of cource they should have to appear! This goes one of three ways: 1)they'll each send representatives to the hearing who are under orders not to answer questions inconclusively or skirt the issue of any potentially damaging question. or 2)they'll send a representative who is actually too incompitent to answer questions. or 3)they'll send pounds and pounds of documents that go nowhere and take too long to go through for anyone to care what the findings were anyway. It's the same every time a high level official or corporate ceo are arrighned on these types of issues. I mean, have you watched these things on television. Few people ask hard questions and even the soft ones are not answered. What a joke the laws of this country have become. Since when is prisoner abuse in a Fed. detention center not that big a deal? If JOE BLOW gets cought stealing a $1,000 T.V. he gets slapped with a felony.
