Obama On Gitmo

Obama admits that the detainees at Gitmo and represent a danger to the security of the USA-

President Barack Obama said in an interview aired on Monday he worried that detainees freed from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo, Cuba, might resume attacks on the United States.

I think the key part of that statement is "resume".

He then goes on to this nonsense-

But he told NBC News that closure of the prison was a matter of upholding U.S. values and law, and that a failure to do so would ultimately make Americans less secure.

“Can we guarantee that they’re not going to try to participate in another attack? No,” Obama said. “But what I can guarantee is that if we don’t uphold our Constitution and our values, that over time that will make us less safe. And that will be a recruitment tool for organizations like al-Qaeda.”

Two points here- first he is intent on releasing prisoners who are a threat to America, the same type of people who committed mass murder on 9/11 and who kill American servicemen overseas. And he admits there are no guarantees that they won't resume their war against America. But he's going to let them go free regardless. All in the name of the Constitution- which has no bearing on the rights of foreign terrorists seized during a time of war.

Secondly, Obama is suggesting that Al Qaeda recruits are concerned with the intricacies of US constitutional law and Americans remaining to true to their values? Seriously- does he even realise what he's saying?

The Joint Chiefs of Staff HAVE AN ABSOLUTE CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY to stand behind Guantanamo Military Judge James Pohl UNTIL OBAMA OVERCOMES “RES IPSA LOQUITUR” BY SUPPLYING HIS LONG FORM BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND PROVING HIS ELIGIBILITY TO BE PRESIDENT UNDER ARTICLE 2 OF THE US CONSTITUTION.
