That’s the politically correct term for Islamic terrorists in Europe anyway.

Ya know, "enemy combatant" has such a ...negative connotation. It's really not helpful to label them that way. So glad to see we can work out our differences with these gentlemen in a more open-minded manner.

You Yanks will be paying these mungrels “compensation” within a year. And legal aid will be funding their American lawyers to do it.

Mark my words. You read it here first, on the FRee Republic.

So what are these mutts then. This is outrageous. Seems like we still haven't moved off the battle field of Viet Nam. Wake up for crying out loud. There are NO UNIFORMS, NO SPECIFIC COUNTRYS. This is the new form of warfare and we are stuck on stupid

Somewhere, in a cave east of Afghanistan, or in the basement of Mecca, OBL and co. are rolling on the floor, in howling laughter.

Imagine the outcome if these Obama leftest lawyer types were in charge during World War Two? They would be more concerned about the enemies rights than winning the victory.
