GTMO:Obama Prescription Is At Odds With Top Military Advisers

quote:

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's suggestion Thursday that "history will cast a harsh judgment" if the nation fails to deal with the detainees at Guantanamo Bay in 10 to 20 years might come as a harsh surprise to some of his top military and civilian defense advisers.

That's because they told Congress just one week earlier that the United States could be saddled with the prisoners even longer.

Obama was calling on Congress Thursday to end the laws they have passed restricting the administration from moving the 166 captives who remain at the United States' jail for terrorism suspects in Cuba.

That arseclown is trying to blame the GOP for it not being closed, despite Dems controlling all the govt his 1st 2 years and him pledging to close it when he ran in 2008. He and the media demonized Bush for it being open. Media shut up about it after he was elected. Never seems to want to take responsibility for anything, at least anything negative.

Why is Gitmo so important for Obama?

I don't think it is, politically. Maybe personally, because of the Muslims involved. Probably just trying to get the media to shift attention off the scandals. It got a lot of media play once, but that was to demonized George Bush. He can try to revive it, but it makes him look bad, but not as bad as the other things hitting the media now.

Not surprising given that he wants foreign terrorists prosecuted in civilian courts like they are no different than any common criminal.

His whole philosophy regarding terrorism is arse backwards I think.

quote:

"I know the politics are hard, but history will cast a harsh judgment on this aspect of our fight against terrorism and those of us who fail to end it," Obama said in a speech to the National Defense University. "Imagine a future -- 10 years from now or 20 years from now -- when the United States of America is still holding people who have been charged with no crime on a piece of land that is not a part of our country."

"Look at the current situation, where we are force-feeding detainees who are being held on a hunger strike," Obama said. "Is that who we are? Is that something our founders foresaw? Is that the America we want to leave our children?"


One sentence to describe this is, the Politically Correct crowd are coddling terrorists. A few months ago when the hunger strikes in GTMO were first being reported. Even the progressive MSM was reporting the terrorists hunger strike was a ploy for attention. Just so they get a team of OJ lawyers.

Through interrogation of AQ terrorists in the past; their little black book of plays and tactics was found and exposed and studied. They train to play off of our political correctness.

Obama is supposedly a very astute man. Tell me why is it that he seems to be the only fool idiot that falls for the 'we will starve ourselves" statement? Why is it Obama seems to share more sympathy for terrorists than our JTF (joint task force) guarding them? Watch this VIDEO.

It will clearly show, if anything, the terrorists are spitting on our JTF. The terrorists have a soccer field,their own catered to islamic diet, prayer rugs, medical, dental at the drop of a hat. Yet...according to Obama's quote above Obama has sympathy for terrorists because they are starving and being forced feed. They are forced feed kindly with a g-tube. This is the same as if a prisoner were on suicide watch. They cannot be let to die.

Why does Obama appease and sympathize with terrorists when he certainly has the same classified and non classified information at his exposal that the terrorists are using our political correctness against us? Obama is using the BS tactic he is worried what others will think of us. He is so full of crap. Even if, he does care what others think of us, he shouldn't care because we don't negotiate with terrorists, much less sympathize and aid a abet them, like he does.

Where is Rex and the progressives on this?

I will word it differently for them.

If a man sitting in any jail accused of terrorism and he screams to the guards he will not eat. He would be promptly put on suicide watch and given a g-tube. (Even if they knew he was sneaking and eating) as being reported in GTMO. It is common practice and policy. Would a sitting President come out and speak and show sympathy for this plot?

Now, do you, (Progressive reading this) see how it is Obama showing sympathy for a terrorist? These terrorists have a million dollar plus newly built court house where they have military tribunal hearings and RIGHTS. Do you not trust our JAG officers to do their jobs? Do you think YOU or Obama know more about these military tribunal hearings and that those held captive are held for a reason? And not because they are some poor innocent person. If they were innocent they would not be held captive in the first place.
