    Now if this doesn't prove in clear cut terms what we've all been saying about detainees being released in the US! I love it! :D

    Next terror attack is on Obama for releasing them in our own country! Maybe they can use government money to buy a plane ticket to Washington D.C.

    I'm sorry I forgot what your plan was....for someone found to not be a a threat to the US, who we can show committed no crime, but could be killed if sent back to there nation....

    Only one with no clue, is you.

    Whats wrong with American Muslims supporting him? You implying they are all Terroist and anti American? Sure sounds like it. Most of the world would support anyone not named Bush after those 8 years. 70% of Americans included...

    There is nothing wrong with American Muslims supporting obama, thank frakin god they supported obama and not the republicans. There is nothing wrong with Hamas supporting obama either, thank Frakin god that they supported obama over the republican. same for all of the dictators, and lets not forget the communist party of America and the socialist party of America. It is a very good thing those groups supported obama and John Freaking Kerry (who served in Vietnam) before him.

    If you read my post in context you would have noticed I was replying to someone who felt that the detainees from gitmo who are going to be released in the US would be republican. I disagreed.

    You are the one who seems to associate them with terrorists not me, I associated them with democrats ...

    Did she imply something was wrong with American Muslims supporting Obama? The prior poster stated that muslims are somehow 'conservative' and would vote republican, which is a joke of course.

    Pandora simply pointed out most muslims supported Obama by far.

    A better question would be, why is it that you consistently fail to understand Pandora's plainly written posts? Are you intentionally twisting her words and making up red herrings?

    Did anyone actually read the link provided? Did anyone actually read the article that the blog was referring too? The blog was nothing but spin, and the answers to the questions asked in the blog are obvious as to why the situation is what it is.

    When reading the situation as it is laid out in the article, it appears that they are mostly referring to the Uighurs. Of which there are 17 of them. They have been deemed safe to release for a long time, except a country other than CHina is willing to take them, and of course we wont be returning them to China.

    Id like to know why these people were detained in the first place? It sounds to me that thier detention was illegal or at least immorale in the first place. I am not thrilled about any of them being released here, but we dont have a choice after the policies that Bush created.

    As for thier getting "welfare" we all might want to think about the reality here. Firstly, they can probably sue and win a few million worth of damages for thier detention without due cause. Id much rather put them on the doll for a period of time than deal with the potential lawsuits. Then of course there is the option of just putting them on the streets with zero means. I think that would be the worst option. America is a very tough place for new immigrants. Simply releasing them into society would put the rest of us in much greater harm. Because I am sure the first thing they would turn to is crime.

    The situation is messed up. There is no question about that. But instead of getting all up in arms over Obama, you might want to direct your anger at the Bush administration that is responsible for this.

    The Bush administration is not letting them out and putting them in our cities. There is no reason to blame them.

    Since you feel that they are in no way any threat to us you should consider inviting some of them to come live with you. There could be some government money come your way for doing it. Or you could just do it to make up for the evil soldiers who took away their civil rights in the first place, maybe you along with obama can make the world love us again?

    I do not believe they were playing jacks on the side of the road in an innocent manner and the evil American soldiers just grabbed these innocent boys and shoved them in gitmo, but you are welcome to believe that if you like.

    Others have been released before and ended up right back with the terrorist groups (can we still say that word legally?) They ended up killing American solders. Do you think they let the innocent ones go then too?

    It’s so funny but not in a ha-ha sort of way how easily some will demonize our troops as the evil ones who purposefully arrest the innocent, then kept them hostage knowing they were totally and completely innocent.

    They have a purpose.

    Quote, "
    1. These people were released under Bush regime. So Pentagon had purpose on it. Do you think the people like Rumsfeld and Bush would free extremists to fight against them? They are famous for torture, illegal detaining. More likely these are false flag "terrorist" trained by Pentagon's Guantanamo college. They will work for the interest of US intelligence.

    2. How do you know they were not brain washed, or recruited by US military or intelligence? The dirty bomb suspect, Padilla, was once designed to be the witness to prove Iraq related to dirty bomb plot, was recruited in prison. (The plan was soured after my revelation)

    3. When people are aware of that 911 was a false flag attack, this becomes a typical model that government manipulate the "terrorists" to squeeze money and power from people. European country has reason to refuse those Gitmo prisoners. They are likely false flag "terrorist" working for Pentagon and US intelligence. They will play the role like Bin Laden.
