In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

Khadr saga: Unanswered questions

Unanswered questions in 8-year Omar Khadr saga

{My question: What's the difference with what he was doing as to any soldier occupying his country, prepping munitions, using same, and most soldiers are fighting now are the young who've grown up in the carnage, both theaters! And his/others resolve could be hardened by his treatment in captivity with torture, no trial and no contact! Same with the criminal terrorist elements that seek retaliation well beyond the borders!}

Nov 05 2010 - On the upper deck of the ferry stand two svelte women with long braids, big smiles and camcorders capturing their final moments at the world famous naval base.

One woman, the blonde, is a Madonna impersonator. The dark-haired performer is a Cher lookalike.

They were brought to the island for a Saturday night show at the thatched roof Tiki Bar — a rally-the-troops, Bob Hope-style performance.

The night after the party, a military jury sentenced Toronto-born Omar Khadr to 40 years in prison, unaware that a plea deal capped his sentence at eight and gave him the chance to return to Canada by next fall.

“Madonna” commiserates with a reporter about the journalist’s tent accommodations, since the performers stayed at the VIP condos. She believes journalists were forced to live there because we wrote “bad” stories.

Just another vaudevillian Gitmo moment, but perhaps as good a starting point as any to reflect on 23 visits to this famous prison and dissect the eight-year Khadr saga. {read rest}
