O.K. So, YEARS later, after SPENDING TRILLIONS on the "WAR ON TERROR", in Afhghanistan and Iraq, (justified by the Twin TOWERS), we figure out that MOST of those captured are not a THREAT and that almost HALF are from YEMEN!!!!

GOOD GRIEF! WTF! What Next! I wonder if we could bring back the "terrorists" we have KILLED in these wars, including all the woman and children, if we would find a high persentage were NOT a THREAT, but rather in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Lets see here, CHENEY was CEO of Haliburton, who was under fire for BILKING the U.S. of BILLIONS in Desert Storm and Kuwait, BUT we gave them an OPEN NO BID CONTRACT, when we went into IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN.

Bush, has had high level meetings with the oil indusrty executives, since prior to the invasion of Iraq. One of the MAJOR sticking points to progress in Iraq has been, that the U.S. had designed a plan whereby the U.S. BIG IOL companies would OWN and OPERATE the IRAQ OIL INDUSTRY, and pay a "royalty"....

This all look and smells like a BIG FAT FISH! We have acomplished NOTHING with either of these wars! Afghanistan violence is at the HIGHEST LEVEL EVER, since we RETURNED!

AND, one wonders why we are so in debt and why our whole Country has gone DOWN THE TUBES!

RIGHT ON BUSH and Company ha?

WTF, Please move on as Bush is retired and is living in Texas and Obama is our President and the one we have chosen to lead. The article only talks about what came out of Obama's mouth. Open your eyes my child.

WTF? - You do know that Bush is not still President, right? We have a new President who I believe promised to get out out of the war in Iraq quickly, although I'm not sure what progress he has made - well, he did send more troops to Afghanistan.

We need to deal with the present, not the past. I haven't seen much progress or change with the new administration except that I apparently now own a car company.

Everyone promises real change - but we seem to be staying on the same road.

Please somebody do the right thing

WTF, educate yourself as Bush is no longer President and Pablo Escobar has been dead for years. You need to read some so you can stay current and not live in the past.

You are a prime example of how our "social programs" are often a benefit.

You can actually READ and WRITE!

Good Job Little man!

I suggest that they send them to Corcoran and let them loose with those Aryan Brotherhood dudes! I suspect within a week we have cured our terrorist problem without waterboarding.
