" Earlier, the committee's top Democrat, Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, said the United States may face terrorism "as long as you and I live." He asked Brig. Gen. Thomas Hemingway, who oversees military trials of Guantanamo prisoners, if that means America can hold prisoners that long without charges.
"I think that we can hold them as long as the conflict endures," Hemingway responded.
"Guantanamo Bay is an international embarrassment to our nation, to our ideals, and it remains a festering threat to our security," Leahy said.
"Our great country, America, was once viewed as a leader in human rights and the rule of law, and justly so. Guantanamo has undermined our leadership, has damaged our credibility, has drained the world's goodwill for America at an alarming rate," Leahy added.
No Mr. 'Leaky' (Senator doesn't fit you), YOU have been and continue to be the greatest security threat to our nation, as well as being an embarrassment to the presitious Senate. You and your co-horts have Osam Bin Laden laughing his ass off - they couldn't have planned it better.
Your pandering to the 'world'; the enemies of the United States - is in a word - traitorous. In my opinion, Gitmo would be too good for you - you belong in Leavenworth. Don't worry, if it happens, we'll let you read the Quran while you're there.
For those of you unfamiliar with Leaky pants background on his award:
"In 1987, Leahy resigned from his position as Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee after an investigation into an alleged leak to an reporter regarding classified information. Other allegations have been made about other leaks, but the investigation was never made public."
