Bush wanted to try Gitmo detainees in U.S. courts (video)
June 11, 2009


After reading another of Liz Cheney’s ridiculous assertions during her most recent “don’t convict my Daddy” tour, this time denying that President Bush ever suggested putting Gitmo detainees on trial in a U.S. Court of Law, I decided to hunt for video of the comment myself.

Since the stated objective of our YouTube page is “Recording history for those who seek to rewrite it“, I thought this was one clip that desperately needed inclusion in our archive as the Right-wing goes into its usual hysterics over President Obama’s stated plan to “close Gitmo and try the detainees in U.S. courts.”

It only took a quick Google search to confirm that President Bush did indeed express his desire to close the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and put the detainees on trial in the U.S. court system during the EU World Summit on June 21, 2006. I quickly found the full video and clipped the comment in question:


Someone needs to tells these Conservative morons that we live in the age of video tape.
