I am surprised that something like that has not happeed here....think about it....U go to the airport with your luggage, go to check your suitcase in and get in security line with carry on or back pack, large crowd waiting in line....there is no security in that line....very easy to set off an explosion.

Agree. Fortunately the FBI, NSA, and local Law Enforecement have done a good job chasing leads and potential adversaries. Still, sadly, just a matter of time. Our people must be lucky all the time, ther bad guys, not so much

Remember also that once on airport property you're on dozens of cameras, unless it's a suicide attack the deterrent is there. If you're radicalized enough to kill yourself the odds of you being on a watch list go up also...so the number of unknown yet radicalized individuals is likely not a huge group. Remains to be seen how much trouble Europe is in right now...

I can't believe I am going to say this and I don't agree with it but you will probably see internment camps in the future followed by massive deportations once the Syrian conflict settles down.

Key word here is probably which is a little more than might but a lot less than definite.

Actually, I am going to correct you, we will have Gitmo as long as it is necessary, we will hear the same government that uses it speak against it, and when that administration has gotten its usefulness from it, they will remove it at the last minute, and its utility, to the next administration.

If he closed it in his first couple years that is one thing, but if Obama waits until the last minute, that is just fraud.

Right, because detaining and torturing so many was good PR.

Get the number down to the few dozen that are a really connected to 9/11...why we went there to begin with and the situation is totally different.

Of course this would have taken more time and Bush Co. had other plans.

You need to get some reality into your thought process .
Not to be a pest , but since you fancy yourself a Gitmo psychologist could you answer my question from before ?

It's contextually not relevant. Your question was about closing GITMO, not what we could have done differently. i.e. they shouldn't have been there to begin with...

Besides, it's hardly a surprise that after being captured, shackled to the floor of a transport aircraft with a bag over your head, imprisoned and harshly interrogated for years...that some might leave with a slight grudge.

The "they hate us for our freedoms" line was rhetoric designed so people wouldn't challenge Bush's justification for war.

From Bin Laden's perspective 9/11 was about the US backing actors like Israel and the Saudi monarchy that had failed to serve the interests of Muslims...it was defensive not offensive.

Sorry but it didn't happen because we have gay rights and freedom fries.

Sadly the Violent minority is controlling the Narrative when it come to How Muslims are viewed ... The remainder have a choice to make and this choice needs to happen soon .. they need to choose a side they need to see them self's as Germans, Belgium , French or Americans 1st

THEY NEED TOO see themselves as Muslim 2nd and help purge theses scum from their ranks .. Because if they dont the tide will change and they will be swept aside and the extreme Muslims will have the war with the west they hoped for and the peaceful Muslim will pay the price ... from both sides ..

The fire is smoldering !!!

Here's a genius idea...

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016...rhoods-n543616

Certainly the best way to combat radicalization it to marginalize people because of their race/religion...I can't think of any better way to get more collaboration with the FBI and LPD...

And this is the number two, who can't be as idiotic as the number 1.

John Kasich is looking better and better every day.
