"Prolonged detention" is not new

Published:

Maddow takes issue with Prez Obama's "prolonged detention" speech.

Maybe "American history" is much shorter than I have been led to believe, or maybe "never" has been redefined; that's been happening to many words, lately. The two presidents that Obama has been compared most favorably with, FDR and Abe Lincoln, both had systems like this. Both detained journalists and others who were critical of their wars. FDR also had Japanese-, German-, & Italian-Americans, entire families, put into internment camps during WWII. That census data really came in handy -- but, that's a whole other blog entry.

Only big surprise .... news outlets who zealously and unabashedly campaigned for him are listening to his stated intent ...... now that it's too late.

Conservative journalists published works years before. Pity no one listened.

Hitler did everything "legally" by first passing new laws for it. I guess that was his new "legal regime". Sheesh! Those poor poor INOCENT dedainees! What they need is tons of therapy and rehab if their horrific ordeal can ever be healed! How about $ compensation as well for each day they spent in hell for no reason but a show!
