GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham confirmed Monday he is working with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel to break the logjam on closing the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and bringing the prisoners to trial.
The South Carolina senator said that in a series of meetings and phone calls over the last several weeks, he has pressed to establish a new national security court that would keep most Guantanamo detainees out of the federal courthouse. He expressed confidence that he could strike a deal to extend some measure of habeas corpus rights to prisoners detained on terrorism charges and to draft a law of war statute that ensures no one can be detained on the whim of the executive branch without oversight or judicial recourse.

Graham is just another RINO that needs to go as surely as the least of the demonRATs. He is no less a traitor than the pig he is yukking it up with.

To call Lindsey Graham a treasonous sack of crap is to insult treasonous sacks of crap.
Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

I believe the Senator is out of step with the tenor of the times, which is to tar and feather incumbent politicians who oppose the constitutionalist spirit of the people.

GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham confirmed Monday he is
being screwed by White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel to break the logjam on closing the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and bringing the prisoners to trial.
The only thing Emanuel is good for is as a spittoon. Lindsey, you're not much better.
