    A federal judge says the United States can continue to hold some prisoners at Guantanamo Bay indefinitely without any charges.

    U.S. District Judge John Bates' opinion issued Tuesday night limited the Obama administration's definition of who can be held. But he said Congress in the days after Sept. 11, 2001 gave the president the authority to hold anyone involved in planning, aiding or carrying out the terrorist attacks.

    So if I should post "Lets bomb the twin towers if they are every rebuilt" then everyone on this list could be arrested and held until we died?

    Is that what the current detainees did?

    Or is this just silly hyperbole on your part?
