Pammy Asks, I Answer

I'm developing such a close relationship with little Pammy Geller. I don't know how long this can last, with our passions running so high.

Today Pammy asks the following serious question:

"WHY WOULD OBAMA RELEASE GITMO ISLAMIC TERRORISTS ONTO OUR STREETS?"

Here's Pammy's cute answer:

"These are the acts of an enemy, a hater of America"

Here's another answer, Pammy:

Recognize that?

Pammy, just for your information, keeping a person locked up for years without charges or access to the supposed evidence against them or an attorney, does not constitute a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury. Nor does it constitute being informed of the nature and cause of the accusation. Nor does it involve being confronted with the witnesses against him, nor of being able to call witnesses in his defense, nor having the assistance of counsel.

In brief, the Bush administration's treatment of these people has violated virtually all of their constitutional protections, and has rendered it impossible, in a nation of laws, to convict them of anything, no matter how abominable they may actually be.

And this does not even begin to deal with the torture issue.

In short, it is the sole and total responsibility of the Bush administration, that there is no legal way to hold these people to account; and it is the sole and total responsibility of the Bush administration for any evil acts they get up to in the future.
