What a idiot. Question, are you black?

You care comparing a stain on a dress to our military being maimed and killed?

Seventeen sailors were killed and thirty nine others were injured in the blast. The injured sailors were taken to the United States Army's Landstuhl Regional Medical Center near Ramstein, Germany and later, back to the United States. The attack was the deadliest against a U.S. Naval vessel since the Iraqi attack on the USS Stark (FFG-31) on 17 May 1987.

The asymmetric warfare attack was organized and directed by Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist organization.[4][5][6][7] In June 2001, an al-Qaeda recruitment video featuring bin Laden boasted about the attack and encouraged similar attacks.[8][9]

This doesn't mean he's just going to be let go. The military tribunals aren't reliable. Notice the article doesn't say he'll go free. It says the White house will review the cases and decide whether to press charges in regular courts.
Why don't you trust the court system our founding fathers' came up with?
" Why don't you trust the court system our founding fathers' came up with? " It has changed since then. Innocent until proven guilty has been replaced with guilty until you prove yourself innocent.

Unlike Bush who made billions off Iraq oil and sent thousands of americans to die in a sandbox 'cause his daddy looked bad for losing to iraq? The Obamanation will TRY to fix what Bush screwed up so bad. Like bringing back the constitution. I guess the communist-er-republican party wants to be the Nazi party now. Sig Hiel-Bush!

You Assume thePlatt is legal. Bad move. It's a rule not a law. You read up on it, I'll wait.
The war was as legal as Hitler's journey into Poland. The money made by Bush and his friends from Iraq oil hasn't gone to Iraq, hasn't paid for the war? Where is it? It is in Bush's pockets and his friends pockets.
Without checking the kook blogs..tell us how much money Bush and his friends made from Iraqi oil??

Well..I'm waiting.

No no no you fool. It's just coincidence that Cheney used to run Haliburton and that Haliburton got hundreds of millions in Iraq contracts!

Coincidence....That's funny...very funny...I guess I was wrong for wanting Chaney in jail for something as small as shooting someone in the face. Guess we should get him and Bush for profitteering and Anti-American activities. You know, treason, for acting AGAINST America's best interest. And doing it on pourpose.
