I can't believe we are penalizing soldiers for defending themselves.

"We will look you up on the Internet,” the prisoners said. “We will find you and slaughter you and your family in your homes at night. We will cut your throats like sheep. We will drink the blood of the infidel.”

There should be no Gitmo, and no prisoners. All of these fiends should have been executed outright.

Thank you for posting this unbelievable article Valin!

Of course we will never see any of this in the MSM.

The "Real" Club Gitmo.

I can't believe what our soldiers have to put up with from these scum bags.

Muslims are like very young, but very bad children. They do bad things and are vy hateful, but, when caught, they cry and say they are misunderstood and mistreated. They plead that they are too young to be punished. But as so soon as you are out of sight, they start right back with the evil. They are demonic and singleminded about their goal.

Like you said elsewhere today (it might been yesterday), "Hitler is nothing compared to Islam." Hitler may have cut a little a deal with the Devil, but Allah is the Devil and Islam is his perfect plan for the destruction of Christian and Jews...and domination of the world.

Thanks for the ping. Now please excuse me while I go hurl.

For this he was dropped in rank to private...
For this he was charged with assault...
...soldier was disciplined for cursing at inmates...
He was recommended for a reduction in rank to E-4, loss of a month’s pay, and extra duty for 45 days...

This is just wrong. I've said it before, I'll say it again, I will continue to say it ...

This article made me sick. It put Durbin's comments in an even more unbelievable light. I am disgusted by how the Democrats, aided by the MSM, have politicized this entire War on Terror at the risk of our Nation's security.

God Bless our brave troops who risk their lives so that we can remain free.

"It's" comments have always been unbelievable to me. Even more unbelievable was the so called "republicans" that did absolutely nothing about him. It was right after his treasonous remarks that violence broke out again in Afghanistan, claiming 19 of our finest.

Yes, God Bless our troops!! They get no help at all from their government!

btw, I love your tag verse. I have a t-shirt with that same verse.

Whoa, don't know what happened in my last post - lost half of it.

Send them to Reeducation Camps. We will be humane as Pol Pot or Vietnam or The North Koreans.

What about those we have admitted were wrongly imprisoned--those who were nabbed in a dragnet and were in the wrong place at the wrong time (e.g., taxi driver) or were turned in by dishonest informants? Are you aware that we have released dozens of detainees?

Would you really have liked the execution of innocents?

Regarding "Take no prisoners" approach, how about this from the article...
Strategic intelligence, the kind that we continue to collect at Gitmo, however, seems to have a much longer shelf life. Today’s interrogators are succeeding at mapping out the complex organizational and financial structure of al-Qaeda in increasing detail, thereby uncovering networks that need to be attacked and dismantled. They are uncovering new “sleeper” cells. They are learning of temporarily shelved plans for new terrorist attacks, some of which have subsequently been thwarted by law enforcement authorities in America and Europe.
So the good feeling of killing them all instead of capturing them is worth the loss of strategic intelligence? I'm not sure I agree with that cost/benefit analysis, if this article is correct.
