Since early 2002, the American government has repeated over and over and over that the only people at Guantanamo are Terrorists, the Worst of the Worst, both superhuman and sub-human animals. One U.S. military official famously said that Guantanamo detainees are "people who would chew through a hydraulic cable to bring a C-17 down." This was all assumed to be true without any need for it to be proven -- the War President, the Commander-in-Chief, decreed it to be so, and thus it was so.

Yet over the years, we've released hundreds of them -- the Worst of the Worst -- because it turned out they were guilty of absolutely nothing. After the Supreme Court, in June of 2008, ruled unconstitutional the U.S. Congress' denial of habeas corpus rights to Guantanamo detainees, federal courts that finally reviewed their cases began ruling that there is no credible to support the accusations against many of them. Yet still, most political and media elites -- in both political parties and across the political spectrum -- continue simply to assume that they are Terrorists. Think about what it says about someone who, even in the face of all the evidence of these continuous, false accusations, wants to vest the President with the power to keep people in cages indefinitely without having to prove their guilt, or is willing to simply assume that people we lock up are, by definition, Terrorists.

My understanding is that only 1 in 20 proved to be of high value. American witnesses basically said that we scooped up bodies and hoped they had information.

I just can't believe how far this country has slid in the past 8 years. We are now #6 for the electronic police state:

....waiting for lefty to chime in that this matters not, do not be unduly concerned.

I appreciate the wink, anniefey...because Bush didn't "keep" us "safe." And we've not been "safe"... ever. What country is? Well, there's always Switzerland, I guess... :roll: .

Madagascar is considered the safest in the event of a nasty virus. They close the ports very quickly. So I hear anyway.
