  • I think the only safe thing to do is operate under the enemy combatant threat. Janet Napolitano seems to need a wake up call.

  • Janet needs to retire.

    I think I will believe the terrorists. Even if I'm wrong, it is better to err on the side of caution.

  • Wouldn't it be great, if we could just waterboard this scum-bag today? Maybe then, we could find out, if he's the first of 100 terrorist's, or if he really is just a lone wolf. But I guess we'll just have to wait, until the next jet falls out of the sky, to figure that out for sure. We are definitely back to the pre-9/11 state of mind, if we treat this guy as a criminal, instead of, an enemy combatant as we should. Have we as a Nation, lost our collective minds?

    no, we couldn't. torture doesn't work and Al qaeda cells are not set up that way.
