Clemency for Terror

Remember the USS Cole? The ship in the Gulf of Aden that was suicide bombed by al Qaeda terrorists, who murdered seventeen U.S. Navy sailors?

Yahoo! News:

The Pentagon’s senior judge overseeing terror trials at Guantanamo Bay dropped charges Thursday against an al-Qaida suspect in the 2000 USS Cole bombing, upholding President Barack Obama‘s order to freeze military tribunals there.

The charges against suspected al-Qaida bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri marked the last active Guantanamo war crimes case.

Meanwhile, there are a bunch of families with the victims of this murdering dog that continue to wonder if they will ever receive some justice for the murders of their loved ones.

Obama’s doing really good. He’s working hard to “restore our image” abroad, while at the same time, making himself look like a weak fool at home.

Note: You are also making yourself look weak around the world.

Let My People Go

A pair of terrorists that were set free from GITMO have appeared on an al Qaeda video. They are pictured below. They don’t look very ‘terrorizing’ but I suppose that’s besides the point.

Google News reports:

“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.

They also said that the food in Yemen is not as good as GITMO, and they really missed the beautiful surf and the sand.

Guantánamo

In one of the first acts of his administration, President Obama has signed an executive order that forces the closure of the detention facility located at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

Of course, nowhere in the order is any type of plan for where we put two-hundred and forty five terrorists. The people housed there weren’t at the wrong place at the wrong time. They were captured by U.S. forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. Many of these people have murdered Americans with a smile on their face.

And let us not forget Obama’s fifty one seconds of National (weak) Defense priorities:

So what do we do with this gang of terrorist scum? While Obama feels that closing GITMO will help our nation’s image worldwide, it instead sends a clear message of appeasement to our enemies: If you are captured, don’t worry. There will be plenty of U.S. lawyers that will work tirelessly to get you free. Of those freed, 61 have returned to terrorism. One has even been promoted to leader of al Qaeda’s Yemeni group.

Do not forget that the detainees down there would happily slice your infidel throat if they had the chance. Many have even plotted your death.

It pains me to say this, but this one act will become the turning point in the War. Our enemy will grow stronger, as we weaken back into our safe and happy September 10th mindset. I only hope and pray that we won’t see the eleventh once more.
