    @John Beasley: He has been in custody for 12 years. I'm not sure if he can get a life sentence for conspiracy in a case like this, but if he is sentenced to less then he already has time served on the order of 12 years. I can't believe people are saying this guy got railroaded.

    CPT- W is a great patriot, a man who, despite his shortcomings tried to do everything he could to protect us americans. This current government is more concerned with being allowed to grope my genitals at the airport.

    CPT Comedy. I think we can both agree that W had too many people around him who were able to sway him and his policies, but as a man and a president, W was truly concerned for our safety. Perhaps had he a different VP it might have worked out better!

    One major concern I have is the personality cult that Obama is trying to create. That's how Stalin, Mao and Sung got started
