Democratic Senator Jack Reed of Vermont Agrees With George Bush on Guantanamo


Democratic Senator Jack Reed of Nevada gave the best explanation I have heard for keeping terrorist in Guantanamo Baby, Cuba.  Except his explanation was used to placate the worries about trying terrorists in Federal Court in New York City.

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday”, upon questioning by host Chris Wallace about the likely hood of 9/11 plotter being found not guilty in Federal Court and released, Reed had this to say

“Under basic principles of international law, as long as these individuals pose a threat they can be detained and they will.”

Upon further questioning Reed added

“Under the principle of preventive detention which is recognized during hostilities … I don’t think he’ll be released. “.

If the Senator agrees that we are presently under “hostilities” with terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed then why are we trying him in a civilian court?

The Senator from Vermont who was on the short list to be Barack Obama’s Vice President running mate on the Democratic ticket has openly stated that persons posing a threat to the United States can be held indefinitely, not only without a trial, but can be given a trial, acquitted and still held indefinitely.

What a difference a change in adminstration makes for some people’s opinions.
