22. He had plenty of time to act before that.
He said he'd have it done in a year. That year passed before Congress did anything to stop him.

And if he doesn't have a case against them, he SHOULD let them go. Continuing to hold people this way is a crime, one that both Bush and now Obama would be in jail for today if we had a functional justice system. We've held people there for years, and tortured them to, who we know are innocent.

Yes, if they're innocent, letting them go is a GREAT idea. Those who might not be innocent, you know we have a system of courts whose job it is to determine that, and they don't even waterboard to do it. Maybe we should put them to work.
