frankly, i not only hope Barack Hussein Obama II is foreign-born, i hope he's

meanwhile, in news that matters,

from the Saudi Ministry of Interior, corroborated by the Pentagon's own
findings, show that the the overwhelming majority of individuals detained at
only were not terrorists, but were likely INNOCENT OF ANY
one kenyan senator is on record as saying,
"in the detention cells of Guantanamo, we have compromised our most precious
values. What could have been a call to a generation has become an excuse for
unchecked presidential power. A tragedy that united us was turned into a political
wedge issue used to divide us. ... There has been only one conviction at Guantanamo.
It was for a guilty plea on material support for terrorism. The sentence was 9 months.
There has not been one conviction of a terrorist act. I have faith in America's courts,
and I have faith in our JAGs. As President, I WILL CLOSE GUANTANAMO, reject the
Military Commissions Act, and adhere to the Geneva Conventions."
When your life is on the go?take your life with you.
