118. Do you realize that you're using the same excuse that the MIC
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 04:25 PM by truth2power
has already used, over and over? "I agree Gitmo was a mistake." What horse puckey!

Before we invaded Iraq tens of thousands of people worldwide protested against the invasion. Hundreds of credible, informed individuals said it was a bad idea; that there were no WMD's etc.

But Bush had a hardon, you see. so, in we went. When, finally, there was incontrovertible proof that Operation Iraqi Freedom was a gigantic fuck-up, the US govt. admitted it was a mistake, but said if we left even worse things would happen.

Now the line is that, assuredly, Gitmo was a mistake. But there's no real remedy, so, conveniently, we should just continue on as before, incarcerating these people forever. Because The War Against Terror (TWAT) will never end. I call bullshit!!

Just once. JUST ONCE, I would like to see the American people have to be accountable for their screw-ups. Maybe then they would think twice about electing malignant trolls to govern (sic) them.

edit for typo
