The Yemeni group - known as "al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula" - posted the statement this week on a militant Web site that regularly carries al-Qaida messages.

It says the man returned to his home in Saudi Arabia after his release from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba about a year ago and from there went to Yemen to join the terror group.

I still can't believe he's President, it's like I'm looking at an actor portraying a president. He doesn't come off as being "presidential".
Ed, what we know about ANY administration is what they WANT us to know... I'm 101% positive there's SO much "behind-the-scene" stuff that we DON'T know about that has to be taken into consideration when ANYTHING is done by the President. If the American public actually DID know everything happening, I'm sure it would lead to mass hysteria, revolt, etc...

I gave Bush 4 years of support before my coming to the conclusion that he's an idiot & one of the worst things to happen to our country (remember, that's my opinion). BUT....I still started out supporting him, though he wasn't who I wanted in office...after all, he WAS our leader. (yes Paul, it DOES feel good to say that!!)

We don't know what tomorrow's gonna bring, & some decisions that we may view as "wrong" may actually be the best when weighed-in with the "info" that the public is not aware of...

Wrong.

You are assuming they are terrorists. Why would you do that when of the 700+ people who have been through Gitmo, over 400 have been simply let go? The remaining detainees should get some type of trial (if there's anything actually triable) to determine their guilt or innocence.

How can you say wrong? Most likely they are terrorists. And if they are, they shouldn't be let go or treated humane and with civility.
