Because freedom can't protect itself
Thank you God. There are still some judges out there who have not become left-wing liberal activist or "quizlings".
Judge Pohl is a real, patriotic American who loves his country, unlike the ACLU (also known as the fifth column) in America.
Good job judge Pohl.
Good for him! Seems like not everyone has had their honor stripped away. This terrorist is responsible, by his own admission PRIOR to capture, for the cowardly attack on the USS Cole.
Bless the Judge.
The Joint Chiefs of Staff HAVE AN ABSOLUTE CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY to stand behind Guantanamo Military Judge James Pohl UNTIL OBAMA OVERCOMES “RES IPSA LOQUITUR” BY SUPPLYING HIS LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND PROVING HIS ELIGIBILITY TO BE PRESIDENT UNDER ARTICLE 2 OF THE US CONSTITUTION.
I see this site brings in "teh stoopid" with both barrels. It reminds me of the Dover decision, the poor judge, a conservative, Republican appointee got death threats because the wing-nuts didn't like the fact the judge was upholding the Constitution.
Now some wing-nut judge decides to thumb his nose at the Commander-in-Chief and he's a hero, while all the rest are somehow a bunch of pinko-commie judges. Even though a 120-day stay is no big deal. Hell, just legal common courtesy which the judge can't abide in his desire to rail-road the defendent.
