More GOP on Gitmo

John Boehner's site explains who these guys in Gitmo are.
House Republicans today introduced the Keep Terrorists Out of America Act, legislation aimed at stopping the transfer or release of terrorists held at the Guantanamo Bay prison into the United States. The terrorists held at the Guantanamo Bay prison are neither nameless nor faceless, and they are not common criminals. They are some of the world’s most cold-blooded terrorists who have dedicated most of their lives to killing Americans and our allies. In short, they are some of the most dangerous men in the world.

Finally Dem Rep. Adam Schiff on criminal trials for terrorists. He says trying them in American courts has a home court advantage. There is now way we can give these impartial trials. A trial would be a sham. They're not criminals. There warriors of the most dangerous sort, at war with the United States. If not killed on the battlefield, they belong in Gitmo for the duration: until bin Laden issues a fatwa of surrender.

Then they can go home.
