I was told that Barack Obama is

"The Next Perfect American 911."

Now I believe it.

He might as well call these terrorists his buddies. No wonder Momar Kadafi calls him a friend to the Arab socialist cause.

"Oh Bomb Ya" is a not a president; he appears to be foreign policy strategy for the enemies of democracy position and funded by the middle east to weaken the US defenses and patriotism in order to prepare it for an invasion.

Wake up America!

Well its change.....call black white,and white black........Obamas is "Alice In Wonderland"...or is he a Jackass with his head in the sand,waiting to get his butt kicked......it will of course...to kingdom come......

The USA has never been so vulnerable since WW2...when an other socialist bumbled us into world war....."I seen Herr Hitler..And He assured Me There Will Be Peace In Our Time" England said,
How many times must we learn a lesson??

whine bitch and moan...enemy combatant was never a legit reason for us to hold these prisoners.....we arent still holding japenese or germans from ww2 are we?

these prisoners will get due process like they should already have and will go into prison if guilty .

we ,the united states of america,do NOT hold people in jail indefintely without charging them--that is one of the oldest and most basic rights civilized men have ever created.

You boys still dont get it.....Bush created boogeymen out of a few muslims he locked up at gitmo so he could raid the treasury and throw out the constitution.

Not only should we be ashamed to have locked up people without due process we should be more ashamed of being fooled into thinking a couple hundred men Bush dragged over here from the iraqi war were so dangerous that they could somehow threaten our whole nation if we dealt with them.

grow a pair and stop cowering everytime these fools in gitmo are mentioned.

Tell us about Lincoln with the suspensions of Ha bis Corpus,how about rounding up Japanese Americans and putting them in consecration camps,Under FDR,tell us about the POW ww2 camps all over the US...how about all the hanging of japs,and nazis after military convictions.Under Truman,...I think instead of your old Bush bashing ,which frankly is stale,and boring now,you best "GET LERNT"....reading your convenient distortion's redefines the word Ignorant.

Your ranting and raving days against Bush are over...Its now defense time for you..you better have some good defensive comments for this currant misfit from the Chicago slums,with a preacher who for 20yrs
god daming America...tell us about that..Oh Yes add Change,Earmarks,Thief's and crooks ,tax evaders.the list will grow on and on..Defend that crap!!
One more,just a little thing...9/11...tell us about that? lay off the weed man!!

Obama declared that he is no longer detaining any enemy combatants at Guantanamo—because he is abandoning the term “enemy combatant”.


President Bush should just have changed the name of Guantanamo. Then he could have announced that there were no longer any enemy combatants at Guantanamo.

you guys comparing major world wars or our civil war to Bush's fiasco in Iraq is just simply pathetic.

Bush raided the treasury and violated the law and used this sad little iraq war as justification for it all...and you Bushies still wont admit his reckless behavior took this nation to the brink of ruin.

like I said grow a pair and stop being afraid of some idiots in the desert who have to use box cutters,Bush brainwashed you into thinking some underfed guys in Gitmo were so dangerous to our nation while he and cheney were the ones who was sticking the knives in our backs.

bush had the justice department give him the power of warrantless searches because he was president and we are at war.....where is your outrage over that?


If Obama claimed he had the authority to knock down your front door because we are at war you'd yell to high heaven about it.

Have you honestly forgotten about 9/11?? Prisoners in Gitmo are claiming responsibility for the attacks and aren't just trying to kill us, they're literally DYING to kill us. One of the prisoners released was reinstated to be a high ranking member in al-Qaeda the minute he returned home. Do you think that these guys are going home after their release and saying "Ok let me get on with my life now. I'm glad that's over"?? I HIGHLY DOUBT IT.

Am I safe in saying you did not lose a loved one in 9/11? Maybe if you did, it would bring you a little closer to the topic. Don't tell anyone to "grow a pair" buddy. Get some sense. I haven't forgotten.

Awwwww....the neocons are MAD! They don't get to whizz on the Constitution anymore because they got FIRED 11/4/08. Poor crybabies. President Obama has wasted not one second completely taking apart Bush's "legacy".

Now he needs to have him, Cheney and Rumsfeld prosecuted, convicted and jailed.
