128. First of all...
I don't care if congress agreed with Bush. I don't care if GOD agreed with him (actually, god did agree, to hear him tell it).

The US invaded a country when just about anybody who mattered said, for a number of reasons, it was a very bad idea. When that turned out to be the case, we simply admitted it was a mistake and continued on exactly as before. And so on, until the next "mistake' and the next, and the next. I'm sick of it.

As far as Gitmo: Let then ALL go. Yes. What a goddamn clusterfuck we've created. We have no idea who's AQ and who isn't, for sure. Practically everybody was ratting-out everyone else, probably as a consequence of being waterboarded or tortured in other ways. One guy was so garrulous that they had to put an asterisk by his name, because virtually nothing he said could be relied on.

furthermore, you can be assured that if I were one of those innocent goatherders that were detained, I would JOIN AQ at the first opportunity if I were released. In what alternate universe do you think that WOULDN'T be true.

Everybody there is eligible for release, IMO, either because they really are innocent or by virtue of having been tortured.

And if anyone wants to get their panties in a twist about releasing so-called "terrorists" from Gitmo, that number would be insignificant compared to the hundreds we're creating every day by our actions in the ME.
