    Lawmakers have moved to block transfer of the detainees to at least two potential and frequently discussed military facilities: an Army prison at Fr. Leavenworth, Kan., and a Navy brig in Charleston, S.C. A Marine Corps prison at Camp Pendleton in Southern California also is under consideration, a Pentagon official said.


    Sweet just where we need know terrorist :h5:

    It isn't going to change the fact we (the United States and its three letter groups) will continue to hold people without due process of law and use torture to get information. It will just be moved to another country that likes our money too much to say no.

    I've already voted for obama once hoping that I would see someone correct the ways of the republican wrongs. I was again reminded that democrats and republicans are essentially the same. There isn't a chance it will be closed jan 20.

    Executive orders are fucking bullshit. We have checks and balances for a reason.

    While I totally agree on this issue with public U.S. law, I respect the fact that the President is Commander in Chief and if GITMO is a Military installation, he has the right to close it down. I don't know if it is controlled by congress, but i'm sure it's funded by Congress.

    Yup, Obama didn't come out of anywhere you know. The republicans ran a candidate so bad against him in 2004 for senate that they handed the virtually unknown obama the senate with the biggest victory margin for that office (perhaps even any state office, not sure off hand) in IL history. When the republican is so bad that he makes obama a better choice...well thank the GOP for that. Had they not run someone who was such a nut we might not have president elect obama right now.

    You're somewhat less dumb today.
