#1  "The situation is very clear: if the United States does not accept our conditions, we will not go...."

That's a win/win if I've ever seen one.

#2 "The situation is very clear: if the United States does not accept our conditions, we will not go."

LOL! Now there's an empty threat if I ever heard one! Next, he'll be telling us he's going to hold his breath 'til he turns blue...

#3 Article: "The situation is very clear: if the United States does not accept our conditions, we will not go," Nowak warned.

Hokay - if you don't want to show up, we won't insist.

#4 I don't think they quite grasp the subtle meaning of the customary ultimatum. This is much closer to tantrum than ultimatum, lol.

#6 "We cannot accept the exclusion of private interviews with detainees

I'll save them the trouble. This is what the complaints will sound like: "I asked for spaghetti with marinara sauce, and all I got was noodles and ketchup".

Nevermind, they probably would get spaghetti with marinara if they asked for it.

#8 Most of these so-called "Human Rights" inspectors' deserve to be incarcerated at Gitmo.

#13 The United States has until Thursday (November 17) to confirm it will allow United Nations inspectors open access to detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba

My bet is the UN's worried what the terrs will say about UN fund-raising operations.

#14 Yep, right after you clean out all the crooks involved in the Oil-for-Bribes program. Considering you just reinstated with back pay the one crook you had the timidity to release, that's not going to happen soon.

Sorry but, as their captors we have a duty to protect them from rapist, crooks, and murderers.

#16 Isn't being interviewed by UNweinnies cruel and unusual punishment?

#17 However, this is going to be a festering issue. It will be seized upon by the Dhimmicrats, and since the RINOs are wavering on the war right now, it isn't a good time to put another issue into the news cycle.

I think we need to play along for a while here: there's plenty of wiggle room on what 'open access' means, and we should work diligently -- but slowly, on as close to geologic time as we can -- to ensure that we nail down what that means.

"Why, of course we'll let you come, we just don't want to be surprised by any requests. I'm sorry, could you repeat yourselves, we don't speak French. Oh, that wasn't French? Sorry, our mistake. Could you repeat yourselves?"

I'd string this along for a while.

#18 Sure, dude....the minute the UN gives us free and unfettered access to the Oil for Food records.....
