Listen to this rant about the Supreme Court decision on Gitmo detainees and you'll know the state of conservatism in this country He's like so many of them.

Beck: This court has done some frightening. frightening things....If I'm president of the US, I would go on National television and say---'ladies and gentlemen, the Supreme Court said that we don't have Gitmo so that is over. We're going to release all of them, but I want you to know from here on out our policy is to not have prisoners. We're going to shoot them all in the head.'

If we think they are against us, we're going to shoot them and kill them---period because that's the only thing we've got going for us---cause we can put them away and get information. If we can't put them away and they're going to use our court system---kill them.

The Court never said we didn't have Gitmo or couldn't arrest or prosecute them. Maybe Beck could ask Bush why he can't get guilty verdicts with all the resources we spend on the war on Terror. What an example of American thought he represents. Mass killings are only predicated on what we (US Govt) think about them. How nice. It doesn't matter if he said this on TV or on the radio, he should be immediately fired by CNN to start with. What an embarrassment for them.

Here's one CNN contact page.

Leave more contact info in the comment thread. Bush was unhappy too.

Mr. Bush said he strongly disagreed with the decision - the third time the court has repudiated him on the detainees - and suggested he might seek yet another law to keep terror suspects locked up at the prison camp, even as his presidency winds down.....Justice Department spokesman Peter Carr said Thursday's decision should not affect war crimes trials. "Military commission trials will therefore continue to go forward," Carr said.

Maybe the press can ask Bush and his PR staff if he'd like to shoot and kill them also.

Can you help us out?
