Obama and GuantanamoThis is utterly burlesque.

No propaganda. No partisan smoke screens. Just cold hard reality.

The President of the United States is not sure what will be happening with the detainees who currently reside at the detention center in Guanatanamo Bay once it closes next year.

He said so.

He just doesn’t know.

There is no plan.

He’ll figure it out.

Pinch me, Mabel, I’m dreaming, right?

He knows enough to be able to say with certitude that the closing of Gitmo is the right thing to do – just as he knew that “a woman’s right to choose” an abortion was the correct position to take, despite not being able to say when human life actually begins – but other than that, he’s just not able to speculate with any confidence where these examples of societal excrement will wind up.

How is it possible that the Commander-In-Chief of the United States of America in good conscience, in the midst of a war against barbaric murderers who will stop at nothing to destroy us, can shut down the prison that houses the very scum that would think nothing of slicing the throats of his own children if given the opportunity without a definitive plan in place? And in the name of what??

(If it helps, Mr. President, pretend the prisoners at Gitmo are Rush Limbaugh).

Not surprisingly, this does not appear to disturb the dazed and confused giddy Obamacrats who are still smoking their post orgasmic inauguration cigarettes one bit. As long as President Obama implements policies that  run contrary to anything undertaken under George W. Bush, the planet is better off.

These are the same people, of course, who screamed, “What’s the exit strategy?!” at the Bush administration following the removal of Saddam Hussein in Iraq.

Indeed, if there’s another attack against the United States, perpetrated by anyone released from Gitmo as a result of “preserving American ideals and decency,” there’ll be a whole new round of screaming going on.

As it turns out, some of the former graduates of “Club Gitmo” (as Rush Limbaugh calls it) have, in fact, moved on to bigger things.

Two ex-prisoners in particular are especially making their moms proud.

From the AFP:

Two men released from the US “war on terror” prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have appeared in a video posted on a jihadist website, the SITE monitoring service reported.

One of the two former inmates, a Saudi man identified as Abu Sufyan al-Azdi al-Shahri, or prisoner number 372, has been elevated to the senior ranks of Al-Qaeda in Yemen, a US counter-terrorism official told AFP.

Three other men appear in the video, including Abu al-Hareth Muhammad al-Oufi, identified as an Al-Qaeda field commander. SITE later said he was prisoner No. 333.

A Pentagon spokesman, Commander Jeffrey Gordon, on Saturday declined to confirm the SITE information.

“We remain concerned about ex-Guantanamo detainees who have re-affiliated with terrorist organizations after their departure,” said Gordon.

“We will continue to work with the international community to mitigate the threat they pose,” he said.

On the video, al-Shihri is seen sitting with three other men before a flag of the Islamic State of Iraq, the front for Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

“By Allah, imprisonment only increased our persistence in our principles for which we went out, did jihad for, and were imprisoned for,” al-Shihri was quoted as saying.

The Pentagon estimates that a little more than ten percent of the 521 detainees who have been released from Guantanamo Bay have returned to “the fight.”

To those who find this number too small to be of real concern, consider that even if ten percent of the world’s one billion Muslims sympathize with the “fight” waged by these Islamo-fascist murderers – and even if only ten percent of those sympathizers consider themselves active and enthusiastic supporters of “the cause” – that is, by any measure, substantial.

Said the President on Thursday:

“The message that we are sending the world is that the United States intends to prosecute the ongoing struggle against violence and terrorism and we are going to do so vigilantly and we are going to do so effectively and we are going to do so in a manner that is consistent with our values and our ideals.”

Wrong, Mr. President.

The message this sends, not unlike the message sent by those opposed to capital punishment, is that the lives of the innocent have equal worth to the lives of murderers … and they most certainly do not. The naivety in the President’s position is the assumption that the enemy holds the same value set we do. Remember, aggressive interrogation methods are not standard-fare in this country. No one advocates that they should be. By contrast, torture is as normal a cultural devise to our enemies as outdoor barbecues on Memorial Day are to Americans.

American values and ideals are altogether consistent with the protection innocent life, rewarding those who do good, and fighting those who would inflict evil on the innocent. This is precisely the charge of the United States.

Obama further said:

“We intend to win this fight. We’re going to win it on our terms.”

How about defining them first, sir?

With less than two days before Barack Obama takes the oath of office, and with seemingly every square inch of American humanity and culture consumed with all things messianic, I wanted to recall a few memorable moments of the George W. Bush presidency.

I ‘ve already posted one – a powerful moment from George W. Bush’s speech before a joint session of Congress on September 20, 2001.

Not surprisingly, for me, they all center around 9/11.

This is the second of those three.

It comes from the night of September 11, 2001 – just about twelve hours after the North Tower of the World Trade Center was attacked.

The clip is only :22 seconds in length, but it is the very essence of how the President chose to approach the war against Islamo-fascist terrorists.

It is, for me, one the most memorable moments from the Bush Presidency.

UN Security Council

This may be a knee-jerk reaction on my part – and I’m willing to concede the point – but in my defense, I have a long track record from which I can accurately draw this specific conclusion.  I call it the “American Rule of Thumb.” In short, whatever world opinion is, go with the opposite.


Whatever the consensus from the rest of the world may be on any subject of relevance, go in the other direction.

The United Nations Security Council has called for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza – and, of course, because this is coming from the ever-reliable, always morally clear institution that sits off the East River in Manhattan, my initial instinct is that it must be the wrong thing to do.

Not particularly analytical of me, I know.

The vote was 14-0, with the United States abstaining.

From Fox News:

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said the U.S. agrees with the principles of the cease-fire resolution but wants to see the outcome of an Egyptian effort to bring the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table.

The cease-fire resolution spearheaded by Egypt and France must be “not just applauded, but supported,” Rice said.

Despite the breakthrough in the United Nations, the two-week-old war in the Gaza Strip raged on, and early Friday, an Israeli airstrike flattened a five-story building in northern Gaza, one of more than 30 targets struck before dawn by Israeli warplanes.

I am convinced that if terrorists took over the United Nations building, the multicultural occupants (those still in possession of their jugular veins) would spend the next hours debating on which shade of white the surrender flag ought to be – that is, after laying blame at the tootsies of the United States and Israel for pissing off the “minding their own business” terrorists.

Freedom of speech, of course, means freedom to protest the existence of “Zionist Juice.”

In Manhattan on Sunday.

395617 01_osamaThe terrorist threat to the United States is either a Bush-concoted exageration, or an unintended consequence of imperialist war-mongering – according to much of the American leftorcay. After all, the human fecal matter who fly planes into buildings and strap bombs to the guts of their children were just minding their own business, planting radish gardens, baking Dome of the Rock shaped fig cookies until we came along.

The “fundamental transformers” of America – i.e. the Democrats – are probably not taking too much notice of this one, but I’ll waste my time with it, being one of the brainwashed Bush monkeys.

According to a Yemeni al-Qaeda operative, in a story published on the front page of an Arabic newspaper in London – Al-Quds Al-Arabi – “the terrorist organisation (al-Qaeda) has entered a ‘positive phase’, reinforcing specific training camps around the world that will lead the next “wave of action” against the West.”

(Osama) bin Laden is himself closely following preparations for an attack against the US and aims to “change the face of world politics and economics”. The operative is quoted as saying that “this will be shown by the fact that we now control a major part of the south of Somalia“.

The source also said that during the next few days the terrorist organisation may send a sign of its violent intentions.

The warning has emerged at the same time as publication of a report leaked to The Telegraph newspaper which reveals that a document drawn up by the intelligence branch of the Ministry of Defence says that thousands of extremists are active in the UK.

Security officials, The Telegraph reports, are convinced al-Qaeda cells will attempt another “spectacular” inside the UK with major transport centres, such as airports and train stations, the most likely targets. Other targets include the Houses of Parliament, Whitehall and Buckingham and St James’ palaces, with the threat level described as “severe”.

Let’s hope this “change” that President-elect Obama keeps talking about isn’t the seven-years the United States has been free of terrorist attacks.

Hey Obamacrats …. Do America a favor, okay? Just pretend the terrorists are greehouse gases, or free enterprise.

Go after them. Yeah, it’s that serious, lefties.
