Where’s the real Jack Bauer when we need him? The threat of just having him around would have the terrorists spilling their guts to him.

Actually, importing them to Chicago might not be such a bad deal for them. They can meet up with their old friend Bill Ayers and ask each other for terrorism tips.

STATEMENT OF SENATOR KYLTERRORISM SUBCOMMITTEE HEARING ON GUANTANAMO DETAINEES

DECEMBER 11, 2007

At least 30 detainees who have been released from the Guantanamo Bay detention facility have since returned to waging war against the United States and its allies. A dozen released detainees have been killed in battle by U.S. forces, while others have been recaptured. Two released detainees later became regional commanders for Taliban forces. One released Guantanamo detainee later attacked U.S. and allied soldiers in Afghanistan, killing three Afghan soldiers. Another former detainee has killed an Afghan judge. One released detainee led a terrorist attack on a hotel in Pakistan, and also led a kidnapping raid that resulted in the death of a Chinese civilian. This former detainee recently told Pakistani journalists that he plans to “fight America and its allies until the very end.” (See “U.S. Divulges New Details on Released Gitmo Inmates,” CNN, May 14, 2007; John Mintz, “Released Detainees Rejoining The Fight,” The Washington Post, October 22, 2004.

“The suicide bombing is the first such attack in Iraq linked to a former Guantanamo detainee, though the Defense Intelligence Agency has estimated that as many as three dozen former Guantanamo detainees are confirmed or suspected of having returned to terrorist activities. “

Maybe one in this incoming administration should be required to house several detainees in their own homes.

Both Obama advisers said it's hoped that nations that had initially resisted taking detainees will be more willing to do so after dealing with the new administration."]

Don't ya know this is the Messiah, the one that spoke to the world when in Germany, the one that just coming into kingship will make the seas stop rising. Come on all you other nations of the world, do what the zer0bama asks of you.

Barack Hussein’s first act as President will be to order a surrender of GITMO to the Fidel Castro and communist Cuba. What a legacy he is starting.

This doesn't say he is closing the base, just the prison at the base... (Let's hope!)

so silly that the left worries more about Gitmo and waterboarding than about terrorists with a proven lust for our destruction

just shows they are as naive as they usually look

nerds have taken over....girly men

...what to do with the estimated 250 Al Qaeda and Taliban suspects and potential witnesses who are being held there.

If they let them into this country, that 250 more democratic voters for ACORN to sign up.

"He’s going to piss off the wrong dude."

Personally - I suspect there are thousands of them -- and highly skilled "dudes"....
