This absolutely breaks my heart...this has been a war fought with PCness gone too far in so many ways..the likes of which I have never seen.

...and yet we are now going to release enemy combatants from GIT MO into the population while subsidizing them with our tax-dollars to-boot.

Makes on sick to their stomach.

Release the enemies to all the democrat congress-critters home town, or better yet in the custody of each of them...and by the way start with Blair who is the person in the O cabinet who is suggesting this in the first place...with the puppet-masters who pull the strings leading the way...

George Soros anyone?

There is a difference between murder and killing your enemy on the battlefield. Being PC has nothing to do with it. The men murdered were not a threat; in fact they were captured and bound. As a soldier who has fought this enemy and others, I agree that these soldiers who were a part of the murder be imprisoned for their crime. Whether or not the enemy fights with ethics should not dictate our lack of ethics.

GITMO, I agree should remain open. The guilty there must be separated from the innocent. The innocent must be released with apology and compensation. Mistakes were made, and those mistake need to be attended to. Our mistakes of the past 40 years are part of the problem with these terrorists. I think that they should have been dealt with in the 1970’s when they first began their campaign.

I thought the saying was, "All is fair in love and war." When we fight wars, our military men shouldn't have to play games. Those four Iraqis were caught with deadly weapons inside a house which had killed American soldiers. They deserved to die, just as the Japanese deserved to die in their caves on Iwo Jima or the Germans died in their concrete bunkers at Normandy.

If US soldiers in World War II had been imprisoned for doing the same thing as this soldier, at least 10 percent of the WWII vets would have been sent to prison in 1946!

I honestly feel sorry for this guy and every other US military soldier who put their lives in danger and then are expected to treat the enemy like guests at Shoe Shine Hotel.

Until the US military officers get their heads out of the lawyer's butts, I would advise NOBODY join the military because YOU'RE JAILED IF YOU DO AND YOU'RE KILLED IF YOU DON'T!

Yeah, all those so called lies are coming from the NY Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Buffalo News, UPI, API, Yahoo new s etc. all major TV news networks ie CNN, Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNBC etc
Try reading a newspaper or watching television, you liberal asshole.
Now socialist communist Obama wants to give the big auto's another 21.5 BILLION of YOUR tax dollars. 16.5 BILLION for GM and 5 BILLION for Chrysler on top of the 17. 4 BILLION dollars already given to them.
They also took out/fired GM's CEO Richard Wagoner. Hey, we've now gone from 'socialism' to 'COMMUNISM'.
They could have taken out present former CEO's Bill gates, Steven Jobs, Stene Wozniak, Warren Buffet etc. Why not? YOU COMMUNISTS
It's what COMMUNIST DO and it's all being done wth YOUR Tax dollars. WASTED good money chasing bad.
The total cost of these auto companies would have been a few billion at their lowest prices. NOT 30 over billion dollars. Thank the UAW unions for that waste and abuse.
They don't speak for "US". You communist socialist Democrats bastards.
The stock market didn't like it as it went down about 300 POINTS. Were's the morons who spammed when the market was one that ONE DAY on that false fake suckers rally. It had more to do with Wall street bankers getting ONE TRILION dollars BAILOUT using OUR tax dollars from Obama.
Look at this immoral country with people going into old folks homes and kiling 8 innocent people.
More of this stuff happens with Democrats in charge.
You have Waco with innocent women and children getting burned to death by Clinton and AG Janet Reno, Elian Gonzolez being sent bak to Communist Cuba with assault weapons being pointed at the child, Ruby Ridge getting his wife an dog shot by Reno and Clinton, Eric Rudoplh bombing the Atlanta Olypmpics, the school Columbine massacre, Oklahoma city fedral building bombing and Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. Sept 1994 a guy in a single engine Cessna plane crashing into the Whitehouse to kill Bill Clinton, the Unibomber Ted Kasinski several serial killers and on and on..
This is just the start.
Obama and his immoral, Godless socialist Communists will bring more terror to the America people.
Just look at what Democrat David Paterson is doing to us poor New Yorkers. 131.8 BILLION dollars or OUR money.
TAX AND SPENDING ALL OF OUR MONEY.
Just wait till you get your new utility bills. There's s a big surprise waiting in there for you and you can thank the Democrats for it. NY STATE IS BANKRUPT

The US government will not succeed in Afganistan and Pakistan simply because the unborn here at home do not have the same liberties as regular American citizens. The US government supports infanticide.

Look it sucks he is going to jail. It's hard to know without being him why it all took place but it still happened. Hundreds of thousands of us have been deployed and not murdered anyone. Nobody can say "i would not or would have done the same thing" Deployments and stress are different for everyone. I take pride that as we even know it cost us so much,do not stoop to the levels our enemies do.

Love 'em to death.
Obama is going to realese 17 Chinese Muslim terrorsist on the streets of the Unites States and you can pay for their food stamps and welfare checks.
In Minneapolis MN, a bunch of radical Muslim jihaists are missing and maybe plannig an attack on Ameica as we speak.
In the meantime, the losesr on MSNBC, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel maddow want to see our military and intel agencies as well as our government convicted for war crimes against people like Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, the Mastermind behind the Sept 11th 2001 terrorist attacks on NY city and Washington DC that killed 3,000 innocent Americans, plus the attack on the USS Cole in Aden Yemen Oct 2000 killing 17 US sailors.
God, how I hate liberals. The no good evil liberal socilaist communist SOB's.
Every lib should be rounded up and sent to Gitmo,same difference.

Do you enjoy the death & destruction as much as Obama seems to have learned to enjoy the ultimate power of commander in Chief during Wartime?
