WASHINGTON, Sept. 6 – President Bush said today that 14 suspected terrorists held in secret locations by the C.I.A., including some who were deeply involved in the Sept. 11 attacks and other notorious assaults on Americans, have been transferred to the Guantánamo Bay naval base in Cuba to stand trial.
His comments marked the first time he that he had acknowledged the secret program run by the Central Intelligence Agency to hold and question “high value” terrorist suspects overseas, though allusions to it have surfaced in court documents.
The president gave it away! Now everyone is going to know about the secret prisons! I thought that keeping them secret was the only thing preventing the terr'ists from attacking us, and now they're going to get us all!
I'll have to cry myself to sleep, until Rush and Bill and Sean and all the rest of them tell me tomorrow that the president was bold and brave and leadery, and the newspapers that divulged the same information are still traitorous and bad and smelly.
But seriously, we are witnessing first hand the destruction of the United States, in every possible sense.
