What Planet is Obama From?
One has to wonder after statements like this.
In office for just two weeks, President Barack Hussein Obama (D) already suffers from cognitive dissonance.
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.
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."
Ok, let's put this in plain language--being president is not community organizing. Being president means you have real responsibilities. A primary responsibility is protecting the citizens. Those citizens killed in a terrorist attack because of freed terrorists are then rendered totally incapable of "upholding U.S. values and law;" instead they have been sacrificed for the unAmerican value of debasing its citizens to appease enemies. A basic of "our Constitution and our values" is to protect our shores. Deliberately leaving the country vulnerable to terrorists is unconstitutional.
And yes, freeing the terrorists is a perfect "recruitment tool for organizations like al-Qaeda." Al-Qaeda recruiter: "Look, you can slaughter the US infidels and not much will happen to you; you'll be imprisoned for awhile but soon you'll be free to do it again. And again. Praise allah for 'US values and law.' "
