This will only serve to embarass the nation more

and weaken it. The more we make fools of ourselves, the less other nations think of us, and the less powerful our diplomacy becomes. Then, when we really need to make a point (i.e. Iran), we're going to have to resort to military force.
So, the anti-war groups are causing more warfare and needless death. How nice of them.

Aren't there some real human rights violations they can find to focus their resources? Oh, like, say ... Darfur? North Korea? Cuba? Iran? ...

where have I accused anyone of war crimes. you hear and see things that are not there. I did not write the opening post, I submitted it. it was posted before the attention that all media outlets have now generated.

pass this on to your shadow. you boys enjoy your tea party.

You didn't think it was a good idea?
by EdH / November 10, 2006 11:02 PM PST

You didn't say anything against it. You said, "'gone fishing' might have to wait"

That's not a delusion?

There are no shadows. You are perhaps suffering from some sort of dementia?

that does not mean I am for the lawsuit
by WOODS-HICK / November 11, 2006 6:51 AM PST

either. are opinions mandatory now? oh, you do not know who your shadow is, well guessing his identity should take your mind off the dem sweep last tuesday. if you prefer, another analogy would be a student being taught how to drive. maybe caddy? water bearer? you get the idea, unless you are unsmart.

gone fishing, play golf, clip coupons, etc are associated with retirement. get it. if a trial would go forward he might have to spend time with an attorney. pay attention to the word 'might' it is very descriptive.

there are no shadows? then you are living in a world without light that will make one dimensionless, you know form without content.

The new Congress is very hot to "investigate" things. Let them investigate these two. Durbin comparing our troops to Nazis; the leaks of classified information rumored to be from Leaky Leahy's office, etc.

U.S. Senate Floor Statement by Sen. **** Durbin on Guantanamo Bay

June 14, 2005
....... (quote)When you read some of the graphic descriptions of what has occurred here -- I almost hesitate to put them in the record, and yet they have to be added to this debate. Let me read to you what one FBI agent saw. And I quote from his report:

On a couple of occasions, I entered interview rooms to find a detainee chained hand and foot in a fetal position to the floor, with no chair, food or water. Most times they urinated or defecated on themselves, and had been left there for 18-24 hours or more. On one occasion, the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold....On another occasion, the [air conditioner] had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room well over 100 degrees. The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his hair out throughout the night. On another occasion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room, and had been since the day before, with the detainee chained hand and foot in the fetal position on the tile floor.

If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime -- Pol Pot or others -- that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners.(end quote......) lifting out of context?

(quote):the leaks of classified ***information rumored*** to be from Leaky Leahy's office(end quote)--edh. rumored information? good basis.

of course the 109th congress did not investigate, the republican controlled congress apparently does not think treason is important. they have time to get it started, the session is not over

Durbin doesn't want to remind folks of this. I'm sure he

will send you the appropriate thank you message for doing so.

Perhaps you forgot. Mayor Daley was VERY unhappy about this statement. Durbin was almost in tears apologizing within hours. Now, you post it on the internet again!

well captain, you should reply to the person

Human rights
by marinetbryant / November 10, 2006 9:58 AM PST

This is the main one I could find. They are an offshoot of the ACLU.

But note that the Communist front, the Center for Constitutional Rights, is behind this ? and have been since 2004. They are the champions of the terrorists at Guantanamo ? and the victors in the recent Supreme Court decision granting the terrorists full blown civil trials.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
