"The Cafferty File": Your debate questions?Should Congress hold off on sending President Bush any more bills funding the Iraq war until next year?
Blackmail is an ugly word but that is what this is. Once you give in and pay the blackmailer it doesn't end there. They come back again and again. Not one more dime. -Janet, Henderson, Nevada
Dems should simply fund the war, leave out the coming home restrictions and start doing some real work like enforcing our borders and tax reform. -Milton
What difference does it make at this point? Bush and his Republican backers will just continue to defeat any bill that has a withdrawal timeline. The Democrats may as well continue to submit their bills so they can have some valid fodder for the 2008 Election. -Ken in Shawnee, Kansas
No! As long as Americans keep dying and we're spending $300 million per day in Iraq, Congress MUST keep sending Bush funding bills with a start date for withdrawal, as mandated by a vast majority of the American people last November. -Joseph, Fort Lauderdale, FloridaWhat does it say about conditions at Guantanamo prison camp if, in 2003, military officials wouldn't let the Red Cross in to see what was going on?
It seems to me that there is "something rotten in Denmark". Close that base immediately. We are hated or ridiculed in every country in the world because of Mr. Bush's cowboy attitude. He needs to saddle up and ride back to Texas where heshould have been for the last seven years.-Sammye
What it says is maybe that we have something to hide. Why do we have something to hide? Because we have become what 225 years of freedom and logic have fought against. -Bill, Birmingham, Alabama
This is a major problem for the U.S. We are acting on a double standard. We advocate human rights, and then we have a report like this which tells the world we are violating human rights... we're losing credibility. -M., Baltimore, Maryland
Iran could be one year away from a nuclear weapon. What should the U.S. do about it?
The answer is simpler than most people think: In a word, diplomacy. Talking and trading with Iran with peace in mind is the best strategy to avoid confrontation. I consider economic sanctions an act of war. -Aaron
I think that we should do nothing. George Bush has meddled in the affairs of the Middle East long enough. I think taking action would only make America less safe. The Middle East is crazy. I say if they want to blow each other up then let them do that, and leave our troops out of the affairs of their wars. -Jamal, Swartz Creek, Michigan
Bomb them! I still think they should pay for the hostages, let alone being a nuclear threat to us. Iraq was the wrong country to invade. -Tom, Spring Hill, Florida
Nuclear Iran? Jack it's inevitable. We will try sanctions, that will hurt the poor but the powerful and corrupt will not suffer. We couldn't stop India, Pakistan or North Korea...-Jim, Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts
