So . . . how long till the Democrats start singing General Petraeus' praises?
I'll start. He's wrong. End of discussion.
He’s just saying he’d like to continue in his job. He knows and understands “The Chicago Way.”
If it’s going to be done, how about sending them to “Camp” Alcatraz? There’s already some dedicated “park” money there. Just throw in a little food and you’re good to go.
Interesting that he made this statement there. I hear Prague is nice this time of year. Gets cold in the winter though. Especially if you are wearing sandals.
As for the "enhanced interrogation techniques", I actually think that Patraeus is saying what all of our uniformed officers should be saying. But, that's why we have a a CIA.
The military should only interrogate prisoners using methods solely outlined in the Army Field Manuel. When something more "creative" needs to be employed, that's when a transfer of custody should occur and the CIA, or whomever the President designates should go to work.
The uniformed military should, in no way, be party to these techniques, nor should they be done on US Military installations. JMHO.
Well, if the General won’t fight for Gitmo, why should we?
Perhaps he’s taken up what Rush said yesterday. If you want to succeed, lie like a Liberal.
Petraeus, Robert Gates, Peter Pace, Mike Mullan, the military does not want Guantanimo. It makes the war harder and it gets our guys killed.
Great reporting there./sarc. Look carefully at what is parenthetical versus editorialized.
Petraeus is a smart guy. Many will interpret this politically, when Petraeus speaks in terms of the military, tactics, and strategy.
So far he’s tried successfully to stay above the political fray. I don’t think he’ll jump into it at this point.
Well, that seems to be the end of that. /no sarc
he’s still in uniform, and can’t be expected to undercut the position of his Commander in Chief, no matter how ludicrous.
I read the article and he is like everyone else who has gone on record. They support closing the base, but don’t have a solution of where the terrorists and combatants will go. Perhaps when one of these people interviewed come out with a plan of where to send these clowns that sounds reasonable, then I might agree with them. Until then, club Gitmo should be open for business. Have Colonel Jessup code red the ones that won’t cooperate.
Turned into a tool. What a pity.
Note the careful qualifier, "in a responsible manner." He's not saying anything different than President Bush said. There was nothing in there saying he supports Obama's plan.
Not that so called "real conservatives" are going to pay attention. We just LOVE to eat our own. Besides, the timing of this article takes our minds conveniently away from the racist that the Racist in Chief wants to appoint to the SCOTUS, and her 60% decision overturn rate by that very same SCOTUS.
Send them back to the countries they came from and let their governments deal with them.
I am for closing it too as long as we don’t bring the animals onto American soil. That IS the problem. The American courts will end up releasing them to kill Americans without a second thought. They will suddenly rediscover the constitution when it comes to giving foreigners constitutional rights that Americans have not seen for years now.
We should send them back to their own nations of origin and I do not care what those countries do with them. Liberals would rather have them kill us than take the risk that their governments will kill them.
I nominate Berkley as the site to house them.
This is not a statement without conditions. "In a responsible manner" is the key.
It's only common sense that there can be more than only one solution to a problem like imprisoning terrorists. The problem with keeping them locked up in the US is the ACLU.
I don't think Obama would agree with that.
There would be no more US prisoners out of Afghan and Iraq. I'd think that jurisdiction really shouldn't belong to us anymore since their governments are in place. And I'd return these to those governments.
Dead terrorists don't need tax payer-funded prayer rugs nor bleeding heart LIEberal lawyers.
