Skip to comments.Don't let the "magician" distact public opinion
Posted on 11/13/2009 7:29:26 PM PST by friendlyfred
With the announcement of Guantanamo detainees being brought to NYC for trial, the news has shifted to that subject. I believe this is an intentional effort to distract the public from Health Care, Cap and Trade, and Global Warming bills. Public opinion clearly is against those actions by congress. Obama is trying to divert attention away from those subjects rather than have them be exposed to the light of day.
I would tend to agree with that...
Isn’t it funny they always make announcements on Friday, when the lamestream media shuts down for the weekend, or when ObaMao is sneaking out of town.
Americans are the most productive people anywhere and that is because we are the ultimate multi-taskers.
They are just adding to the pile of stuff we are concerned about or angry over. This is just one more log on the fire and we are the ones who have to manage it with our own pokers.
They are very, very mistaken about our ability to wage opposition on a multitude of issues and we will oppose them at every turn.
The funny part will be that these war criminals could very be acquitted.
First off, bringing them to New York? That is beyond laughable. No way they could get a fair trial so their defense attorneys will argue change of venue. It will be granted but where will it ultimately be tried?
Second, Miranda Rights. Not having received them, much of the evidence against them will be quashed or suppressed. Any that is brought forth will be challenged for chain of command or better yet defense will motion for discovery and los and behold they will have to conjure up a battle ship by the name of USS New York. Said ship is constructed of material from the World Trade Center girders but, unfortunately it has been altered.
Where are the remains of the planes?
How did the Hijackers gain control and what weapons where used?
What about 911 truther theories?
Guantanamo and Habeus Corpus, which will likely come up twice. It will most certainly come up when the Defense demands dismissal for failure to bring forth a timely trial and as such again chain of command over all aspects of the case will come up. Funny, when the government starts pulling change of holding status it will become a huge defect in their case.
Why weren't these alleged murderers(Okay, we still call them terrorist) all availed a competent attorney, who cold pursue a logical, lawful and legal case that follows a traditional path and in some way makes sense?
Torture of a suspect to coerce a confession is not cool. Now if they in jeopardy under the military code of justice as battlefield prisoners then big deal.
But, and really big BUT, when this happens in the traditional area of law enforcement, we let guys go who are indeed really bad guys and we hand them a check. In this case it could indeed be a rather large check.
What about pursuing civil rights violations? Being held against your will in another country? Whoa, man, that is pretty heavy. Being forced to take medication against one’s will, what if they died or were scared silly?
What about the schlubs that got let go? The defense will want to question them but, alas they will not be available for examination. Why is that important? They were rounded up like cattle with the other “alleged” terrorists, now criminals.
Well, well, well...now what will become of the suspects upon acquittal? Where will we release them? What if they claim to be stateless? Who will take them.
Couldn't they apply for asylum? Couldn't they make a “Federal Case” out of hardship and being the process of citizenship or alien residency?
What about their ability to go on the college circuit giving speeches?
They are after men who have been held for years for a crime of which they were acquitted.
Shouldn't they be free to move about the country while they pursue a counter suit and damages for being kidnapped and held as political prisoners for years?
Can't they sue for damages and their lost lives of the last 8 years?
This is going to be fun, for the alleged murderers and they are going to eat up the Arab and m uslim adoration world wide, while making a fool of our government and justice system.
We, the American Public are going to rightfully angry when we let these animals go. But that is the way is the cookie crumbles.
Enjoy the next 5-7 years while the government does their dog and pony show.
Me, I think I will begin eating popcorn without butter.
