Actually, no it is not. There are modifications to nearly every element to insure that it meets all legal and constitutional guidelines. That appears to be what is taking so long to unwind. [too long]

So I guess the Constitution doesn't mean much to the Democrats now either. I mean that's why everyone is so upset about Gitmo. The mere existence of this camp is Un Constitutional all you libs would have us believe.

I guess upon further deliberations it is more constitutional than you first thought.
The 'rats do not want to be seen as being SOFT, and lose political support over their support of terrorist immigration rights.

... and this important discussion continues.


Dooloogssst!

Seems that Obama didn't check with Momma Pelosi and Daddy Reid before he went outside to play.
Apparently it bears repeating:

I understand that the Republicans are confused by this whole debate concept and give and take that goes on in a Party. The concepts of making positions known publicly and then debating them instead of the "stay the course" lockstep concept where everyone is brown-nosed together like some train of trunk and tail circus elephants.

Don't be so sure that he doesn't have a plan but also is fully cognizant that his plan goes through Congress. I realize that is just a nit but it is the legal way to do it. Your confusion will subside with time.

I repeat. Not funding Gitmo without a plan was originally a Republican proposal. The Dems came late to the dance.

The Dems...... so many promises ..... so many votes by crook.... so full of shit!

And there might be those out there who didn't care much for Bush and Cheyne ..... but damned if when them boys said that they were gonna do something if they didn't do it!

The only thing "transparent" about the Obama administration is that don't do anything that they promised.
