Rehtoric. Obama dosn't need congress to close GITMO. He could close it signing one letter.

I understand the problems with terrorist, there is no central State Government to identify these activities! But one thing to my Government, not everyone who has different opinions are terrorist: Terrorism is the systematic use of terror, often violent, especially as a means of coercion. In the international community, however, terrorism has no legally binding, criminal law definition! Usually warring states have to Identify their armies by logo definitions: Identify the key elements of the Hague and Geneva Conventions that pertain to small unit combat operations.

I applaud our President for going forth on this issue! After all torture is against International Law, and if we're going to live in a International Community; we have to follow those laws established for all, just not the few! Third Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War, 1929
Industriali zed nations did not establish these law for fun, they established these law for humanitarian treatment of prisoners! If they are terrorists then they are Gorilla Fighters for a common goal, still combatants! You cannot change the names for your own needs???
