So, both President Obama and former Vice President Cheney gave significant speeches on national security, Guantanamo, and interrogation methods. Taken together, these two speeches gave a good picture of the balance of views on these important issues.
Did anyone catch them both, and what did you think?
Mr. Obama continues to reveal his duplicity by allowing the military tribunals for terror detainees to continue. During his campaign he called the tribunals an "enormous failure" and a "legal black hole."
Did Mr.Obama promise to dismantle military tribunals in election speeches? He said "enormous failure" only. Why not he try to correct its failures? Will any government dismantle military tribunals and let free terror detainees? Not even in dreamworld.
Amen, Uninvited. Why does EVERYTHING have to be set at a Hegelian dialectic?...it becomes so annoying especially with people just producing conservative/libertarian/or whatever partisan questions or 2 to 3 line sound bytes.
It was my understanding that Obama was drawing praise from some Republicans for his decisions on this issue. Oh, but not here... And it would be very sad, indeed, if our mainland prisons were not set up for average criminals such as the ones they are thinking about importing... What, have we got Hannibal Lecter here, or what? lol.
Just--I'm curious: Has anybody ever heard of getting more information on an issue or a problem and then changing course or making revisions on how to handle something? Oh, like at work, or on a project or something?
Neither here nor there... But do people really think politics is about shouting at each other like the Hatfield's and McCoy's? Maybe they discuss or give viewpoints that have a little more depth and breadth?
I did not have a chance to watch the speeches about the Gitmo detainees but i do have something to say first Dick Cheney is defending his administraions polices much more now then he ever did as vice president. Second the people we have locked up deserve a far day in court lets hope we are capable of giving them one and another view point is this idea that if we move the detainees into mainland America it will somehow make us less safe is really showing a serious lack of faith we have in our military like just because they are here they going to get out and run wild. As a former member of the military i ask to please have faith in us that we can keep an eye on a person is wearing a bright orange jumpsuit and is spending most of there time in a confined space
I am Indian I cant say anything...but hope he should try to work on recession happened because of US banking and affected in Indian software...so hoping he will make better sense... He is young politician is the best thing for all...
I disagree with someone when I disagree with them. That's how it works. I have had friends who have been in the Marines look over the comments of that poster and they tell me they are suspect. The composition of his posts suggest he is not a native speaker of English. Hence, my comments.
2nd mar div 2nd AA Bn. Camp Lejune N.C. and once again if you decide to make up an insult about my spelling or grammer you can go fuck your self I type with out thought or concern for how it sounds no need to its just a forum
well if there friends of yours then chances are they agree with your views and wouldn't believe that i served in the marine corp because god forbid a liberal would join the military it is an insult to for you to assume that i did not serve my country but then again you wouldn't care about a soldier sailor or marine that disagrees with your views would you
Well be specific what were the words and phrases and honestly tell me what is soooo fucked up about what i am writeing i dont think you have any specific reasons i think your just being yourself which sadly means that <snipped personal attack>
Yes it is a particular type of response used in this the context originally referred to it would mean contra or against. Contrary, in opposition; in an opposite direction. "Running counter to all the rules of virtue."
$740,000 of taxpayer money to build a soccer field for the prisoners at Gitmo! Guess Obama is counting on getting their votes!How many homeless children could that feed clothe and shelter? Why is Obama...
What do you think about Mitt Romney being the first president in U.S. History to have millions stashed in offshore Tax Havens. You know I saw this tonight and it really bothers me that we keep letting people like this...
So Obama wastes taxpayer money and his time by flying to Europe to tell the IOC why Chicago is the best place for the Olympics. Hours after he left, they voted Chicago the first city out.Obama has invested a lot...
