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?

If Bush hadn't set up this illegal prison camp, this wouldn't have happened. This bastard terrorist would be in jail where he belongs, instead of free to go. Don't blame Obama, blame Bush.

Exactly. Every wingnut out there who keeps talking about how great Gitmo is and how stupid Obama is for closing it is saying "I have no faith in the American justice system."

So anti-American it makes me sick.

I read that an American Guerrilla of the town of Waco, Texas has found another reazon to arm themselves with M16 machine guns and Sniper rifles to protect themselves from the USA Government. The Gun Shop will get rich.

Not only that, they're going against President Obama, who was elected by the people, and not giving respect or support to a man who took on the problems their great leader, Bush, created.

Do some history research about your zero hero McCain and the U.S.S. Forrestal and the Jewish Bankers how they suckered fools, then you can compare notes.

In the good ole' days, when Bush was in power, when America WAS safe, things like this would be unheard of.

Still need proof Obama is an idiot??

Yeah like the disgraceful liar that just left Washington for Dallas. The disgrace who twisted the facts to get us involved in Iraq settling a score for his CIA Crook Daddy while the so called 9-11 terrorist Bin Laden received frequent flier miles out of this country afterwards. I wonder why Daddy George and Shafig Bin Laden were making business deals?

That "illegal prison camp" you're referring to isn't illegal according to the Platt Ammendment.

Read up on it.

Does not bother you that Guantanimo was illegal and it's all Bush's fault for invading an innocent country 'cuase he ain't got the balls to find Osama? Guess the gutless have thier hero Bush to thank for the trillion dollar debt he rang up.

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.
