We’re all terrorists now......
(those guys on 911 have destroyed our country in a way they probably didn’t intend)
Hope Obama continues his capture and release policy. If not I hope these guy’s lawyers are as savvy as the Gitmo lawyers.
I trust these OWS types abotu as far as I can thrown them... and their lawyers even less.
