Murtha: Move trials out of Guantanamo

Murtha: Move trials out of Guantanamo

Pennsylvania's Rep. John Murtha yesterday said he would start pushing the Bush administration to move military trials for high-level terrorism suspects from the controversial detention facility at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba to the U.S. mainland.

Such a step, he argued, would help improve the nation's image abroad after years of negative publicity surrounding the prison camp, which first opened in January 2002 and now holds about 380 detainees.

"We don't want anybody released who is a threat," Mr. Murtha, D-Johnstown, said after a hearing of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. "But, on the other hand, we have to get them a fair trial."

Afghans, Saudis, and Yemenis make up the top three nationalities among detainees.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Terrorist trials coming to a courtroom near you.

What gets me is Murtha's concern that these people get a "fair trial". He is more worried about the terrorists then he is that crime pays.

I will never ever forget nor forgive Murtha for things he has is a quote by Murtha.........

"Well, I say that the fight against Americans began with Abu Ghraib. It began with the invasion of Iraq. That's when terrorism started." (Murtha, Nov. 17, 2005, News Hour with Jim Lehrer)

Murtha's Jabba the Hut!
He's mean and slobby. He thinks he's all that and a bag of chips (whoops! he ate the chips!). He needs to be shut down too.
For a man who served in Vietnam, I'm surprised he's on the other side.
He should be fighting for Veterans rights and he's not. He brings shame to the USMC!

I am no longer wondering whose side these weasles are on. They are definitely on the side of OUR enemy.

Murtha has lost any credibility, if he ever had any, after ABSCAM we all know what drives him.

Madam Chairman, Speaker wants the CIA to start a fight against global warming ...And if you have a campfire in your back yard you will be hauled into court to explain your actions ... and then fined,(again follow the money, these people are disgustingly all socialists, 'useful idiots') for not buying a Carbon Credit.

God willing the American People will wake up before it is too late.

What makes these people so Socialist? It is almost as though they hate America so much they want to destroy her. I know they love power and they are egotists. They are so far out of touch with Middle America. So many of these democraps would have felt right at home serving in the old Soviet Politiboro.

I am sure it will never happen, but the best thing for Federal government would be extreme term limits.

Jeeez, that guy Murtha was stillborn. The fight by Islamists against America goes way back. The first United States military action overseas, executed by the U.S. Marines and Navy, was the storming of Darnis, Tripoli, in 1805. That %@#* Murtha calls himself a Marine, he wouldn't make a carbuncle on the backside of a real Marine. Pelosi must not only be pulling his strings but casting her voice as his also.

Murtha is the result of the early arrival of sinility.

Why are we even having trials? Caught on the battlefield without a uniform = unlawful combatant = no Geneva conventions for them. Catch 'em, get the intel, release 'em from a plane sans parachute.

Hey Jack!

You're absolutely right!

And while they're awaiting trial, appeals, etc., they can stay at your house!

Annnd this old sailor believes you should skip the next USMC Birthday Ball. I don't think you'll be welcome there anymore.

Lynn....."Murtha's Jabba the Hut!"....he sure is, good one.

Mark I pray they do wake up, I truly fear for America and for your troops in harms way when the left takes away their funding if that happens.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 10, 2007 11:43 PM

Tom, I agree, if they can't punish them for their treason, at least if we could just have term limits and get rid of a ton of them that way.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 10, 2007 11:44 PM

Jack, that is interesting about Darnis, Tripoli. Thank you Jack.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 10, 2007 11:49 PM

Mark, yes, and he is one of the main ones if a soldier does mention the Congress to me in emails,it is always with the name Murtha and how they feel about him.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 10, 2007 11:53 PM

razOr that is absolutely right.

It is always a big debate tool too when the left insists on the Geneva Convention. Hello brain cells of the left, that does not apply in this war.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 10, 2007 11:55 PM

Rick I agree, they can all stay at Murtha's house. That would be soooo perfect.

I wonder how he would look walking down the
street with that flag sticking out of his ass..
