Guys, I was kidding.
"Take no prisoners" is starting to look like a pretty good policy.
Wow I figured these guys trials were fixed. Can't believe they can get proven innocent.
They were in no way proven innocent, since they didn't even go to trial.
All this means is that one person who is important in the US military legal system has pointed out a loophole (albeit a critical one)
Right - a lot of women and children in the Twin Towers were suspected of killing Muslim soldiers...

And again, this part:
Tells me that this isnt really a big deal.
I can't believe the administration screwed this simple matter up - I thought they were at least competent enough to properly handle the prosecution of suspected terrorists - but I guess I gave them too much benefit of the doubt. I wonder if they are regretting cutting off appeals rights since now it is more difficult for the U.S. to appeal this decision. Any recharging is going to be riddled with difficulties for the government.

Maybe you can elaborate on this. But I thought that once a judge/jury had decided that a person wasn't guilty, that he couldn't be prosecuted anymore for the same "claimed" offences.
And doesn't this mean that the two should be left out of prison now ?
Well, if he was right it looks like even the rats are leaving the boat now.
You are thinking of 'double jeopardy' which prevents people from getting tried twice for the same crime and I believe that refers to trials that have been completed (resulting in either acquittal or conviction), and not by simply having a case dismissed or a mistrial.
Well they pay income taxes, portions of which end up in the hands of the military. And lets not forget who does like to kill Muslim soldiers . . . Israel! And where do they get their equipment? Amerikkka! You = Terrorist!
Seriously though, this is good news. I have sincere doubts that everyone in there in a terrorist, and holding them is only making a mockery of everything the US once claimed to stand for.
So what? Are you trying to call this judge's integrity into question because happens to be friends with someone in the Pentagon? Did you ever think that maybe because they were friends, that Altenburg knew Brownback would be the right guy for the job?
It just seems to me like you are trying to cast doubt on the man because he is actually giving the detainees a real chance to prove their innocence.
