Oh like this matters...

According to this bit of AP news posted on MSNBC...

"Obama abandons term 'enemy combatant'
The president still asserts the military's authority to hold Gitmo detainees"

Oh my, so we aren't going to call them names anymore, but will still keep them locked up. Good for us.

BTW, the ones of these who were caught doing... well for a simple way to state it... bad things, man... should just be happy to be locked up and not just blown away. Of course, blown away (along with as many others as possible) is what they were hoping for. I guess the rest of us should be happy that they are locked up and not blown away.

Here is a semi-random thought: One man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist. To them, we are just as bad. Of course, I am firmly on this side... so IMHO, they are not freedom fighters.

In another semi-random thought: It is too easy to lock folks up, just ask Americans with Asian features from the 1940's or those who were loaded on the cattle cars in Europe in the 1940's.

So, of course, the question is... What are we going to call them now? Perhaps, Aggressive Adversary will do for a new and improved moniker?

Last semi-random thought... for now: Again, I assert that our commander-in-chief is floundering about. I truly hope that someone with the courage, ability and decency of an average citizen --by citizen, I mean educated, tax-paying, gainfully employed person whose views gravitate toward the center-- steps up to guide this guy. Lord knows we can't trust any of the ones he is currently surrounded by.
