The Cheney quote I just posted reminds me of a similar statement made by Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS), who is railing against the idea of sending Gitmo detainees to Fort Leavenworth - the military's only maximum-security prison:
Obviously, the Guantanamo Bay I'm speaking of houses 'terrorists.' I've been there and there are 'terrorists' at Gitmo! Not 'enemy combatants' fighting in an 'Overseas Contingency Operation' but terrorists, against whom we must wage a War on Terror because they continually plan to launch attacks against us.
Any readers know of similar examples?
