The five men who were ordered to be freed from Guantanamo on Thursday will become a symbol of much of what was wrong with the Bush Administration.Driven by a dangerous belief in a "God" given right to rule the planet George Bush thought he could do as he liked. And the question must be asked .."Where were the American people and their elected representatives while all this was happening?" Why were they silent?
And where was Justice Leon's sense of justice in 2002 when he declared detainees in Guantanamo to be without habeous corpus rights? Maybe he is brave enough to speak up now that George W. has been given his marching orders.
And surely George will not be so stupid to order an appeal.
Whatever, Western credibility has been trashed by Bush...but we are not innocent either..the "children overboard" and our detainee history is just as shameful as John Howard and his grey men blindly followed the tyrants of the U.S.
