Discuss International Prisoner Exchanges

Should we exchange prisoners for Veterans held captive by Foreign or Groups that oppose US policies in the Middle East?

Should the President require Congress approval? If you were the President, would you do the same thing that the President did by exchanging any prisoner held captive, whether they are considered low profile or high profile by the US in exchange for American citizens, whether they would be civilian and Military personnel? 

Plenty of parking in the garage next door. Bring your ticket to get it validated by Taco Mac.

--- Standard Event Details ---

Post articles and logistical questions in the comments, but arguments should go in the forums. Meetup spams every attendee with every comment, so we try to limit comments.

Late is better than No-show!

No-Show policy: people who RSVP yes and don't show may be banned from future events. "No show" includes canceling the day of. Like almost any meetup group, without this policy, we will get 50% or less of the RSVP in attendance, which makes it very hard to coordinate!

We're an eclectic group that meets to respectfully exchange ideas about controversial topics. 

Our group is more focused on learning and hearing different view points than winning a debate. We try to keep the discussion respectful and encourage devil's advocates. It's a chance to talk with and learn from people you would never meet in your existing circles. The conversations are moderated to keep things friendly.

The rules are pretty simple: be nice, brief and on topic.

There is a $1 optional charge to help cover the cost of the meetup group ($144 / year), and buy speakers beers & dinner when we have them.

      We debated that, but are going ahead anyway. The topic will only get more stale later on...

    I am interested, but I am not sure about parking... as far as I know, MARTA parking is only for those using it.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
