So, Bush and his crew are fighting desperately, and losing, to keep the Guantanamo Bay prison open. Hello? The United States is holding people captured in other countries without trial and without charges, one guy I read about for as long as six years? And they defend it? I'm afraid this is what happens when the president is a guy who never knew or appreciated history. The Constitution? Do these jokers even know what's in it? These are the people who think that the Constitution gives the president control over the armed forces. Congress has control over the armed forces; the president's role is merely as "Commander in Chief," a title left undefined.
