Deputy CIA Director Meets With President Saleh. But No Mention of Extriditing Killers of 17 Sailors

This Thursday it was reported that the Deputy Director of the CIA met with President Saleh of Yemen to discuss the fate of 100 Yemenis who are locked up at Gitmo. The Yemenis at Gitmo and what to do with them were a major problem that Obama has inherited from Bush. There are about 240 Yemenis at Gitmo by the way. Of course they were all at the wrong place at the wrong time, and are just innocent victims of Bush's war.

It appears that Obama wants to send them to a plush Saudi Jihad Rehab Center. But Saleh wants his terrorist back home the quick way, by having Obama to release them straight to him. That way he would not have to wait for 3 or 6 months for the ex-Gitmo terrorists to be of use to him. Saleh would no doubt use them as bargaining tools with the Al-Qaeda faction in Yemen, and or use them himself to fight his ever growing enemies. Either way I suspect that in the end he will get them back.

But what is more important about that meeting was that there was no mention of extraditing the Cole bombers. Two of which are roaming free in Yemen. Jamal al-Badawi was convicted in one of Salehs puppet courts, and sentenced to death. We knew that Saleh would not go through with the death penalty, which he did not. Then he pardoned Badawi and set him free, and gave him a government job. Not a bad deal for murdering 17 America sailors. He later put him back in prison when Bush got angry about it. But then it was reported that he was back out. I was also told personally by people in Yemen that he was out at times.

And then there is Fahd al-Quso who was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but served only a short time. Our own government did not even know that he had conveniently escaped like all the other Cole bombers had at one time or another. And he is still free. His family actually wrote a letter to the Yemeni government telling them not to take any measures against their son.

This past week we listened to President Obama's speech at a Memorial service on how our veterans should not be forgotten. It would appear though that he has forgotten 17 American Sailors who were brutally murdered while serving their country. Why he has not demanded the extradition of our sons killers to America is beyond me. At least president Bush did that on numerous occasions. Just last May to be precise. And to even consider sending Saleh some of his terrorists back to him while our son and his mates killers are free is wrong.

Everyone of the terrorists that helped to kill our son was given a joke of a sentence in prison. Some served no more than three years. One terrorists in particular was not even charged with the murder of our son. That terrorist was Hamdia al-Ahdal the second in command of Al-Qaeda in Yemen at the time of the attack. Saleh had him tried on a lesser charge. He got three years with time served.

And all the while President Saleh has been making out like the crook he is. Taking all the money our government throws at him, and always asking for more. And getting it from three different administrations. And for over 8 years now our own government keeps refusing us a Judicial Hearing into why we cannot get any form of justice for the murder of our son and his mates. And why Saleh of Yemen was allowed to interfere with the investigation into the Cole attack. We all know why. It would just be right and appropriate for our government to stand up for 17 of their murdered sailors, but to also shed some light on the rotten regime that they have been helping to support for all these years as they looked the other way as Justice for the murder of 17 sailors, and 39 other wounded sailors was forgotten because it was politically convenient to do so.

Sooner or later I know that the Truth will emerge about the failed Cole investigation, and Saleh's regime. And all the facts will be know. In other tragedies that were similar to the Cole attack the truth has surfaced. I just hope and wish that our government will not wait for later. Those murdered and wounded deserve that, and yes their families do too. And just as important Saleh of Yemen does not deserve our governments cover up of his protection of the terrorists that killed our son. And how his government has used Al-Qaeda when it was to his advantage.

Amnesty International Not Happy With Obama

Amnesty International is not all that happy with their main man, Obama. In one of their recent reports they stated that his policies have been "mixed" when it comes to Counter Terrorism Detention Policies. I would have to agree. But not only mixed, but confusing as well. Not long after Obama's speech last week when he tried to sell why Guantanamo will be closed, and what the disposition of the terrorists would be who are currently residing there I read where he is still trying to figure out if Al-Nashiri would be tried in Federal Court, and or the Military Tribunals. Or the Terror Tribunals according to the liberals. So who knows really?

But that aside, Amnesty is upset that their has been no accountability and remedy for the past Human Rights violations. Maybe they were not watching the news the past three weeks when Nancy Pelosi stuck her foot in her mouth again and had joined the witch hunt to hold some republicans and or people from Bush's administration for water boarding three of the terrorists. Until her lies of not knowing about the enhanced interrogations got her in some serious trouble.

So of course there will be no accountability for the water boarding because we all know why and what it was done for, and that some democrats like Pelosi knew about it while it was happening. And did nothing. Because it was the right thing to do at that time to save thousands of lives.

And Amnesty is also unhappy that the Obama administration claimed "state secrets privilege" to dismiss a lawsuit brought by victims of the CIA. Victims? Oh Please!

And then there is Bagram Prison, Obama's Guantanamo. His administration has filed an appeal that a US federal judge ruled in April that three terrorists could challenge the lawfulness of their detention at that prison in a US Court.
But in all fairness they did give him some words of praise. So he is still the Golden Boy to groups like Amnesty International, the ACLU, Code Pink and other so called Human Rights Groups.

Prime Minister of Israel Tells Obama NO.

Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel has vowed that the Israeli Flag will continue to fly over the Western Wall (Kotel) in Jerusalem. President Obama had asked that the United Nations Flag replace the Israeli Flag over the Old City's holy sites. Netanyahu told him no.
Its hard to believe in a way that Obama would even suggest such a thing. But he did, for all the good it did him. Which was none. Does anyone really think that Israel's enemies which are numerous would respect the UN Flag?

And speaking of Israel's enemies, what about Iran and their dedication in obtaining nukes. More and more Israelis now believe that the President of Iran will obtain his weapons of mass destruction as Obama continues to do nothing but talk. Look at how effective all that talk was in stopping North Korea from making progress on obtaining nuclear weapons.

I don't see Obama getting tough on President Ahmadinejad, so that leaves only Israel to stop the madman from carrying out his promise to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

Israel is in a tough spot right now. So far Israel has not agreed to a two state solution with the Palestinians. And probably will not. Their main priority is stopping Iran from getting nukes. While Obama is more concerned at making Israels enemies happy by having Israel to concede more land, and her security.

It should be obvious to anyone that if Ahmadinejad gets a few nukes then the two state solution want even matter anymore. Israel will have to take out the nuclear weapon sites on her own. If Israel does not then Iran will eventually sell some nukes to the terrorists who will use them against Israel. So Israel will have to fight either way.

Either way the next few years ought to be extremely interesting to see how all this plays out. I just hope and pray that Israel will act quick enough to avoid another Holocaust of Jews. I am more than sure though that no matter what action Israel takes she will still be considered the bad guy for defending herself amongst the liberals here in America and around the world.

Memorial Day

In this country we say,"God Bless America." We are blessed more than any other nation on earth. We talk about what we have; freedom of worship, freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. We also have a free enterprise system, and a free press. We obtained these freedoms through the unity and might of our military. But they are not free. All of our freedoms are bought with a price, and kept with a price.

Visit any VA hospital and go to the Vietnam Memorial Wall. Visit Arlington Cemetery, and other cemeteries through out the country and overseas. Look for all the names that are not on that Wall. And you will find thousands of more names from many other wars and conflicts engraved on simple white tombstones, and or white crosses. They all paid the price, the ultimate price for not only their freedom, but ours as well.

Look into the eyes of the fathers and mothers who lost their sons and daughters. Look into the eyes of the men and women who lost their husbands and wives. They paid the price too. Look into the eyes of the children who lost their fathers, and mothers. They too paid the price for our freedom.

American is a people nation; of the people, by the people and for the people. And we are fortunate that we have men and women who are willing to sacrifice their lives so that all of us can enjoy freedoms that other people in other countries can only dream about.

Politicians speak eloquent and somber words for those Americans who paid the price. But no words can capture the loss that a family has when they lose a loved one in the service of their country. To experience what those families and even our nation has lost, one needs to visit a National Cemetery. And walk between the rows of all the white tombstones, and read the names and the ages of the fallen Americans who paid the price for all of us. Stand still for a moment and just gaze at row up rows of white crosses.

And maybe then you will realize just how fortunate we all are to have had so many Americans who were willing to put their love of country, freedom, and fellow citizens first.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

God Bless America
We Remember Our Son, his mates, and all the other Americans who sacrificed everything, so we could have so much.

Palestine Liberation Organization Ordered To Pay $116 Million For The Murder Of An American Couple

The Plaestine Liberation Organization and Hamas has been ordered by an American judge to pay out $116 Million bucks to the surviving children of a American Citizen and his wife. The couple were returning from a wedding when the terrorists pulled along side them and opened fire on their car. Their 9-month old son survived who was in the car too. They had another son who was not with them at the time of the attack.

The lawsuit was filed under the 1991 anti-terrorism law. Of course the PLO had objected to the ruling on several issues, but lost each time. Good! Neither Hamas, and or the PLO hired an attorney to represent them. The PLO blamed their dead leader Yasser Arafat, as to why they lost the case. I guess they were hoping that they would get lucky and have a Liberal Judge who would empathize with their plight, and their brutal methods of murdering innocent people to achieve their objectives. The destruction of Israel, and all of her citizens.
The lawyers representing the surviving children have stated that only a modest amount of the money awarded has been collected so far. Unfortunately that happens quite often with victims of terrorism. The victims not only have the nations that use terrorism to fight in court with, but their own government as well.

You would think that in this day and age where anyone at any time can be a victim of terrorism that our politicians could agree upon some laws that would help the survivors of terrorists attacks to hold the terrorists and or the nations that fund them accountable. But they have not. Its extremely political. And even more so if its only one victim, or a small group of victims.

To their credit some politicians have come up with excellent laws that would have provided the victims more rights and means that they could have pursued to hold the terrorists accountable, and or the nation(s) that helped the terrorists. But then other politicians have then taken the Bill and gutted it.

When its all said and done, if it ever is. The surviving family members can be, and often are waiting for justice in the civil courts for years, and as in our case even waiting for the trail of the killers for years. And I have read where some families have had to wait decades for some kind of justice to be obtained in the murder of their loved ones.

So its good to hear when the terrorists, and or those that fund their murders are held accountable. It does not happen everyday. Too many times I have read where the terrorists are freed, and or the family cannot hold the nation that provided the money, weapons, and training accountable even in civil court. Because politics reared its ugly head.

Its Official: Obama To Revert Back To the Tribunals

First Off I want to say Thank-you to all the politicians, both Republicans and Democrats who have fought to keep the terrorists at Gitmo, and not to let them come to America. And that the terrorist be tried by the Military Commissions, and not in Federal Court.

Obama's decision too use the Tribunals after all is a significant victory for many Americans, especially for the actual victims of the terrorists. And a major blow to the ACLU, and company. I suspect that there were many reasons as to why he reversed his decision, but my family and myself are glad that he has.

Our fear though is if he will continue to stand up the ACLU, Human Rights Groups, and the far left liberals who are doing everything in their power to help the terrorists that murdered our son, and thousands of other Americans. Amnesty International is now asking their supporters to write Obama to tell him to take the Death Penalty off the table. If you have the stomach for it, visit their web page. And: " If not possible to produce sufficient evidence, admissible in ordinary federal court, to to form a basis for the criminal charge of a person detained at Guantanamo, he should be immediately released."

In other words not only do they not want any information that was gathered with the use of enhanced interrogations used against the terrorists, but nothing else as well even if that evidence was given voluntary. The reason being is that the terrorists were not read their rights, (they are not American Citizens) and in a Federal court any and all evidence would then be rejected by the court.

We have faith in the Military Commissions. We have witnessed the proceedings of a Military Court in person. We have seen the professionalism that the Military lawyers displayed, and their dedication to serve justice fairly. At first we were concerned that with all the new legal rights that Obama has given the terrorists would make the outcome just as predictable as to what happened with the terrorists in the Yemeni Regime Courts, where our sons killers were given reduced sentences and or pardoned for the murder of our son and his mates. But we are hopeful that Al-Nashiri will be held accountable for his barbaric actions which cost the lives of 17 American sailors, and wounded 39 others. And changed the lives of so many of those sailors loved ones forever. And we also hope that all the terrorists who have taken the lives of other innocent Americans will receive what they deserve. And not what the ACLU and their ilk want them to get, which is their freedom.

Unfortunately the trial of the terrorists are extremely political. Anything to do with these terrorists is political. Just look at the can of worms that Nancy Pelosi has recently opened. All for political gain. Has she mentioned any of the Cole victims and or 9/11 victims. No. Has Senator Leahy who is pushing for the Truth Commissions taken the time to talk about the real victims in this ongoing nightmare? No. Its all about the unfortunate terrorists who murdered their fellow citizens, and how Pelosi and Leahy want to ruin the careers of any American who helped to keep us safe, and to gain valuable information from the terrorists.

We are told that the information that was gained from the terrorists with "enhanced interrogation techniques kept more of my fellow Americans from being butchered like our son was. Good. I wish I could personally thank those individuals who conducted the interrogations, and got that information. I have criticized Bush on his foreign policy with Yemen, but never for keeping us safe. And thanks to VP Cheney for standing up for the men and women who did their jobs. I hope he keeps it up!

Our son for all we know suffered a horrible death. And his murder happened in part due to bad and sloppy intelligence sharing amongst our security agencies. I give Bush and his administration credit for changing all that. And if pouring some water down his killer's nose got some reliable and important intelligence than so be it. Because that means there are some more parents out there right now who have their sons and daughters with them because of that information. And that is a good thing. No matter how the ACLU, Human Rights Groups, and far left liberals try to spin it.

Obama Decides Not To Release Terrorist Abuse Photos

What is happening to Obama? First off we hear that he has changed his mind on having the terrorists tried in Federal court, and may revert back to the Military Commissions.

And now he has publicly announced to the dismay and anger of the ACLU, and other Human Rights Groups that he is not going to release the photos of terrorists being abused in Iraq and Afghanistan by some of our military personnel that happened some years back.

Has the reality that we are in a war with Islamic fanatics that will stop at nothing to murder more Americans finally caught up to him? That the release of those photos will only increase the dangers that our troops are now facing. And could potentially increase the chances of another attack here at home, not counting attacks on American living and working overseas as well.

Or maybe its the reality that we are now fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan and if things keep going south in Pakistan, we will then have three fronts to fight at the same time. And the the release of those old photos will only give the enemy more propaganda to use against us. The individuals who abused those terrorists have been held accountable but that would not matter to the enemy overseas and or to our enemies here at home like the ACLU and their rabid supporters.

The ACLU and their minions would plaster those photos everywhere they could, just to advance their twisted agenda of freeing the terrorists at Guantanamo, and hampering the war effort. They, the ACLU, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and their supporters have been foaming at the mouth for months now in anticipation of getting their claws on those old pictures.

Whatever it was that changed his mind, I for one am glad that he did. I am also glad that he is considering on using the Military Commissions for the terrorist trials. But the bad news on that good bit of news is that Obama may ask lawmakers to expand the legal rights of the terrorists.

As if they do not have enough rights as it is now. Considering that they wear no uniform recognized by any nation, they kill men, women and children indiscriminately, they torture their prisoners and then cut their throats to name just a few of their sick behaviors. They should never ever been given the rights of POW's, let alone the rights of an American Citizen which some people think they should have.

But even with all this good news I am worried that there is a catch. Obama has really angered some of his most faithful supporters, especially with not releasing the photos of the abused terrorists. So what will he give them in return for what he has taken away from them?

Dictator Saleh is Happy with the Extra Money He Got From Obama

President Saleh of Yemen is tickled pink that Obama has decided to give his failing regime more money and aid. He is also happy that Obama wants a two state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict, and that the independent Palestinian state will have Jerusalem as its capital. I wonder how Israel feels about all this?

But then again Saleh supports Jihad against Israel. So is it any wonder? The new increase in money for Saleh's regime will include 10 million to support the Yemeni military and Saleh's secret police. The extra money ought to come in handy for the Yemeni secret police in helping them to close more newspapers, and to beat up journalists and then throw them in prison for criticizing Saleh. The military can use their share of the American money to keep terrorizing the local tribes that refuse to fall in line with Salehs policies. Some of the tribes are sick and tired of seeing jobs, and their money go to Saleh, his family and his cronies. And are fighting back.

There was no mention if any of the money would go to helping Saleh to figure out ways to make his prisons escape proof for Al-Qaeda terrorists. And or if Saleh could use some of the money to build a new Jihad rehab for ex-Gitmo terrorists, and or other terrorists who need a break from the stressful life of killing innocent people, and blowing up their homes and businesses. But when a ruthless dictator has a friend in Washington, anything is possible.

Yemeni Regime Continues Its Decline and Obama Gives Saleh More Money

The news out of Yemen continues to be bleak in all areas. Saleh the Dictator of Yemen has closed eight newspapers because they were criticizing him and his regime. And in return Obama has increased American Aid to the Dictator. Up from 41 million to 52 million. Plus with extra bennies throw in for good measure to sweeten the deal.

And then Saleh has the Somalia pirates using ports on Yemens coastlines. And have for years now. But the worst news depending on how you look at it is that the Yemeni regime continues to lose its control over the country. More and more governments are now willing to express their fears that Yemen is becoming another Afghanistan. Any idiot could have seen that over eight years ago. But first Clinton, then Bush, and now Obama have continued to prop up Saleh's duplicitous, deceitful, and dilapidated regime. Three American presidents have made nothing but excuses for Saleh and his actions. And now it looks as if all the chickens are flying home to roost.

This past Friday Obama had a 25 minute phone call with the Yemeni Dictator, Saleh. It appears that Obama wants Saleh's blessing for him to send 100 Yemeni Gitmo terrorists to a Saudi Jihad Rehab. But Saleh reportedly told him that he wants his terrorists back home in Yemen. I bet he does! And still no mention if Obama has confronted Saleh with handing over our son's killers. If the Yemeni Gitmo's are to be freed he wants to be able to use them to make deals with Al-Qaeda like he has in the past. Our government hates to admit that, but they know its true from all the other times that Saleh has poked their eyes with broken promises.

This past January, terrorists announced that the Yemeni Al-Qaeda and the Saudi Al-Qaeda had merged. Yemenis who went to Iraq to fight our soldiers there, have returned back to Yemen to join Al-Qaeda. And lets not forget that Saleh's courts have ruled that Yemenis going to Iraq to conduct Jihad is legal. In the past Saleh cut all kinds of sweet deals with Al-Qaeda to help him and his family to stay in power. Saleh's security forces looked the other way when the Cole bombers who received pathetic sentences from Saleh's terrorists friendly courts were allowed to escape. The Yemeni Security forces has also employed Al-Qaeda fighters to work with governemnt troops when it was advantageous to Saleh. All the while three American presidents have taken the official stance of "See no evil, Hear no evil, and Speak no evil" when it comes to saleh and his corupt regime.

The bad news for Saleh's is that he is now dealing with a New and Improved Al-Qaeda. And these bad boys do not fancy Saleh playing both sides of the fence, and are now making all out war on Saleh's regime. There are still reports of Saleh trying to buy off Al-Qaeda, but it now looks as if all of Saleh's double dealing has come home to bite him big time. His control over the mountainous regions is weak, Al-Qaeda has been reformed and has new leadership that want Yemen to be an Al-Qaeda playground. Al-Qaeda also has the support of local tribes who are angry with Saleh's government, especially in the South of Yemen. South Yemen lost a war to Saleh and have not forgot it. To make matters worse Saleh then put members of his own family and his cronies in charge of the South, who abused their powers, and positions.

But regardless of all the bad news coming out of Yemen our government is still committed to pouring money into Saleh's regime. Always hoping that Saleh will stop his duplicitous behaviors, and reaaly become a friend in fighting terrorism. Personally I think its too late for Saleh to pick our side and to stay on our side, even if the Obama administration is willing to over look the murder of 17 America sailors, and how Saleh did everything in his power to help the killers of those sailors. By playing both sides of the war on terror Saleh has created what he thought he could avoid. The hastening of the end of his regime.

Obama To Send Yemeni Gitmo Terrorists To Saudi Rehab

I know that Obama and Holder really don't want to keep Guantanamo open, and are running out of options on what to do with the terrorists who are currently residing at Gitmo but sending them to a Saudi Rehab is like freeing them.

I wrote back in January that I believed that Obama would take that course unfortunately. It is an easy way to get rid of a nasty problem and look like he has accomplished something. But its wrong. Period. For many reasons. Even a Senior Obama administration official admitted that the Yemen Regime knows it terrorists will get a better deal in a Saudi Rehab than in front of a American judge, especially a military judge. Yet here is Obama actually thinking about going through with this charade.

The Saudi Rehab has had some success with former Jihadists. The jihadist get all kinds of goodies to quit their evil ways like money, a wife, an apartment, a job, etc.. But with Yemenis terrorists its much different. They know that they can return back to Yemen, and face no consequences for any of their crimes. Just the opposite in fact, President Saleh of Yemen may hire them to fight his numerous enemies. And then of course there is the Yemeni Al-Qaeda faction which has continued to prosper and grown in Yemen. And will welcome their long lost jihadist friends back with open arms. Eleven ex-former Gitmo terrorists who graduated with honors from the Saudi Rehab could not resist the temptation to blow people and things up and returned back to Al-Qaeda. One of those 11 former Gitmos is now one of the leaders of Al-Qaeda in Yemen.

And then there is the fact that at least three of our sons killers are walking around free in Yemen. While President Obama is doing nothing about it. If he is we have not been told. Bush would send the FBI to Yemen off and on to make demands that one of them be extradited. Saleh always refused of course. And our government always kept sending him more money for his coffers and still does. I wonder if Obama has even bothered to ask Saleh to exchange Al-Badawi and Al-Quso who helped to murder our son for some of the Yemeni Gitmo terrorists?

Al-Quso escaped awhile back from a Yemeni prison and Saleh did not even bother to tell our government. But then again just about every single Cole bomber escaped from prison at one time or another, or else Saleh reduced their sentences, and or pardoned them. Of course our government made a strong protest when ever they found out about the escapes, reduced sentences, and pardons! And Saleh just smiled all the way to bank with check in hand.

Saleh has been setting up his own Jihad Rehab Center! And guess what? He wants us, the American tax payer to pay for it. What a friking joke. And we probably will in the end. I also think that if Saleh gets some of his jihadist back that more innocent people will be murdered. Buts that politics right?

And yet all it would have taken is for Obama to have kept Gitmo open, and the tribunals going forward. The terrorists who were convicted could have lived out their sentences on a secured island. And justice served. Yet now the Obama administration is trying desperately to find a nation, any nation who will take the terrorists. And all the risks that they entail. No-one still knows where or when they will be tried, or what prison they will be in, or what system they will be tried in, Federal or military. And Obama's staff is having to go to any lengths to unload these terrorists on someone else just so they can just get rid of them. Regardless if the jihadists return back to terrorism. Because if only one of the terrorists kills a person it want be the Obama's administration problem. Unless its an American. And most of the evidence remains classified on the terrorists to be sent for Rehab. Odd don't you think? If they have done no wrong then why cannot we the American people know what they have been accused of and all the facts?

Will the insanity ever end? I mean think about it for awhile. Our soldiers risk life and limb to catch these scumbags, we spend tons of money on on intelligence, building a new and isolated prison, keep the terrorists in prison for a few years at an enormous cost to us the taxpayers, and then we just sit them free!

Democrats Deny Funding to Close Guantanamo!

The Campaign to keep Guantanamo open is having success! Thanks to some democrats. The democrats supported Obama in closing Gitmo, but have now changed their minds. Thank God! They voted against funding for shutting the prison. They refused to give Obama the $81 million bucks he wanted to so as to be able to close the prison. Thank-you Democrats! I was beginning to wonder if any of the democratic politicians had any common sense left, and or courage to stand up for what is right.

But the battle may be far from over. So if you want to keep the terrorists from coming to America and being tried in Federal Court with all the rights as an American citizen then you had better get busy in supporting organizations like Move America Forward! It takes but a second to sign the petition to keep Guantanamo open. And if you have some extra pocket change than donate it for a worthy cause.
This is a major victory against the radical left who support the terrorists and want them to be set free.

A Big Thank-you to all the people working at Move America Forward from the Swenchonis Family. Keep Up the Good Fight!
And to all the people who took the time to click on the link at our site to keep Guantanamo open! And for all you support in emails and phone calls.

Obama May Use The Military Commissions After All

Its been speculated for a while now that Obama may change his mind on having the terrorists tried in Federal Court after all. And go back to the Military Commissions Tribunals which he stopped this past January after he was elected president.

I will believe it when I see it! The murdered victims of the terrorists and their families have been waiting for years now to obtain some measure of justice. We were actually getting ready to leave for the beginning of Al-Nashiri's trail when Obama shut everything down.
And now Obama has made the trials of the terrorists even more political than they were. Most politicians in their right mind do not want the terrorists tried in their backyard, let alone kept in their respective states for any length of time. Can anyone blame them?

Obama is also finding out that some of the nations that condemned Guantanamo do not want to accept any of the terrorists as well. And here at home the polls showed that most Americans wanted Guantanamo to stay open. But Obama was anxious to fulfill a campaign pledge to a segment of his supporters, the lunatics on the left. And here we are the victims families, and loved ones three months later and still no solid answers from our so called leaders.

Officials in Obama's administration fear that if the terrorists are tried here in America in Federal court that some of them may just walk away as free murderers to kill again. I wonder how much money and time they had to spend to figure that one out? That's what the liberal left has been wanting for years now. And Obama has to know that there are some judges out there who would be delighted in helping a terrorist who murdered Americans to get off scott free in his or her courtroom. Any lawyer worth his salt would bring up the "torture issue" and how the poor terrorists had their rights violated. End of trial.

Attorney General Holder has emphasized that if the Commissions are used, then the rules must give the terrorists "a maximum amount of due process". I think that's Holders way of saying that the Military Commissions have to make the rules in favor of the terrorists and not their victims. These cretins are not even American citizens, they wore no uniforms, are not from another nations military, etc.. The terrorists should be grateful that they are even getting a trial by a military tribuanl, and not just taken out and shot like they deserve. Now wouldn't that send the liberals into convulsions.

Of course the ACLU and other so called Human Rights groups are complaining about this latest move on Obamas part. We only wish that our politicians would stop playing politics with the murder of our son, and other victims of terrorist attacks. I don't think a day goes by without us hearing on the news how some democrats and their rabid followers want anyone who was associated with waterboarding held accountable. Yet we never hear from these backstabbing politicians one mention of justice for the all the murders that the terrorists committed.

I call them backstabbers because they had the opportunity to voice their disagreement when the water boarding was going to be used, but did not. And after all it was only simulated drowning. What's the big deal? You can almost hear their little minds thinking "And if it gets turned into a big deal I can always say I did not know".Typical politician thinking. Can anyone say Nancy Pelosi? click on title
