I suppose this should gratify me, but I think it's frigging chilling. Who the hell are the 25% who think you SHOULD be allowed to hold someone indefinitly without charges?

Don't people understand that without a trial, without a lawyer, and without an opportunity to even speak for themselves, you don't know that they're guilty of ANYTHING? Are we supposed to just take Bush's word for it? Because he has such a good track record with such things?

Given pro-and-con arguments — letting the detainees defend themselves at trial vs. risking further terrorism if they're released — 71 percent in this ABC News/Washington Post poll say they should either be given POW status or charged with a crime. Just 25 percent back current administration policy, holding these detainees indefinitely without charges.
