For example, look at this recent dialogue between Senator Reid and a reporter:

REID: I’m saying that the United States Senate, Democrats and Republicans, do not want terrorists to be released in the United States. That’s very clear.

QUESTION: No one’s talking about releasing them. We’re talking about putting them in prison somewhere in the United States.

REID: Can’t put them in prison unless you release them.

QUESTION: Sir, are you going to clarify that a little bit? …

REID: I can’t make it any more clear than the statement I have given to you. We will never allow terrorists to be released in the United States.

QUESTION: But Senator, Senator, it’s not that you’re not being clear when you say you don’t want them released. But could you say — would you be all right with them being transferred to an American prison?

REID: Not in the United States.

Am I missing something here? What is wrong with people!?
Reid is a moron. Just like Pelosi and Biden. Think before you speak, people.

Sen. Reid botches 3 subjects at news conference

Closing Gitmo is an awful, awful idea. When we let these guys go, they go right back to their terrorist ways.

Re: OH NO! Where will Gitmo go?

Cracks me up on how much the chosen one squawked about closing Gitmo as a campaign promise and here we are years later and nothing has changed.

Looking at the current field of GOP candidates, I think Donald Trump has the most executive experience

With with our financial issues Donald Trump might not be a bad pick. I wounder what he will do with all the people collecting checks and not working for them. You know that would drive a business man like him crazy.

Re: OH NO! Where will Gitmo go?

I believe what Reid was getting at is the people in Gitmo can not be held in the United States. We have to give them a trial first and be able to show enough evidence to prove they are guilty of a crime -- most of the people held in GITMO could not be charged, let alone convincted, within the United States.

The question to those that want to move them here, are you up for bending the Constitution more than we already are with GITMO? It's a loophole to put it off American soil, it is straight up breaking a constitutional freedom to do it within the borders of the United States.

Re: OH NO! Where will Gitmo go?

Most are held as prisoners of war because they were captured on the battle field. Hard to prosecute them in the US because the only evidence we have is that they where fighting against us.
