The Obama Administration Will Stop at Nothing to Expose Waterboarding!
In the most blatantly Anti-American act yet, the Obama Administration announced Friday self-proclaimed 911 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees will be brought to trial in a civilian federal courthouse in New York, near the site of the 2001 terror attacks. Why in the world would they do such a thing you ask? Simple, this is their way of satisfying their liberal base’s insatiable appetite to expose the so called torture (Waterboarding) that took place under the Bush Administration!
Attorney General Eric Holder, who favors closing Gitmo and was opposed to the Patriot Act, said the 911 mastermind, should be tried where his alleged crime occurred; crime it was not a crime but an Act of War! Thus once again the Obama Administration chooses political expediency over national security. With this decision he satisfies his liberal base which continues to refuse to acknowledge al-Qaida as the real and present danger it is!
Remember, Clinton followed a similar pattern, trying the Blind Sheik for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing in federal court in New York which led to the series of al-Qaida attacks culminating with the 911 attack itself. This enemy was treated as a criminal as opposed to an entity that had declared war on the United States of America, a strategy which left us unaware as well as unprepared for the magnitude of their network and its’ resolve to kill Americans!
But this decision goes deeper than a mere difference of opinion between the interpretations of the acts of the individuals as Acts of Terrorism vs. Violations of Criminal Law. This is an overt action by an administration obsessed with slandering and defaming its predecessors regardless of the national security consequences. From the moment George Bush defeated Al Gore in 2000 the liberal base of the Democratic Party has been obsessed with bringing down George W. Bush, regardless of the consequences!
This latest decision corroborates Obama's overall approach to the problem of terrorism; first and foremost it should never be acknowledged as such but treated as a crime and not an act of war. In doing so he is taking an unnecessary risk that could result in the disclosure of classified information which could prove valuable to our enemies including information about U.S. intelligence sources and methods of interrogation!
And what about the chosen venue for this charade, New York City, well obviously the odds that another attack against it have been increased exponentially with the mere presence of this Jihadist. Obama and his fellow Marxist could care less. Exposing the Bush Administration as a bunch of Barbaric Thugs who would stop at nothing to extract information from poor misguided Muslims is worth any risk. This is in essence a trial against the CIA and Waterboarding as opposed to a trial against a Terrorist Jihadist that plotted the murder of over 3,000 people! In the process valuable information about U.S. intelligence sources and methods will be revealed to the al-Qaida terrorist network.
In essence we have a president who doesn't know we're at war! A president who is willing to go to any lengths, compromise any element of national security and in the process expose American troops still fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as millions of American New York citizens in order to satisfy his Liberal Base! It sickens me to think America has sunk to this level of denial and appeasement!
