After five years and more than 4,000 U.S. troops dead, the war in Iraq remains an important issue for voters. Below, we provide a summary or direct quote of each candidate's position.

Mike Huckabee: Supports God's decision to tell Bush to invade.

Rudy Giuliani: Plans to stick it out until he finds a prettier, younger country to invade.

Hillary Clinton: "I would never have voted for the war had we known it would become unpopular."

Ron Paul: Opposes it for some complicated libertarian reason best explained in a rambling, discursive way by your office I.T. guy.

Khan is one of very few Guantanamo prisoners whose claim to U.S. residency has been legally established. [...] In the course of meetings with counsel and the Red Cross, Khan also handed over neatly penned, handwritten letters. Several have been made public, after heavy redactions imposed by U.S. military censors. One of Khan's messages begins: "In this letter I am going to mention some of the things I have been through." Then the next 19 lines of text are blacked out.


Also, your leaders (who, let me remind you, 52% OF YOU VOTED FOR IN 2004) are still batshit insane:

Cheney: "Would I invade Iraq again? You're damn right I would!"


And the Whitehouse says that they'll definitely consider using waterboarding again...
