Skip to comments.Bush's 'war on terror' comes to a sudden end (HEY LIBS, YOU PICKED A TRAITOR, WIMP AND LOSER!)
Posted on 01/23/2009 3:40:27 AM PST by tobyhill
President Obama yesterday eliminated the most controversial tools employed by his predecessor against terrorism suspects. With the stroke of his pen, he effectively declared an end to the "war on terror," as President George W. Bush had defined it, signaling to the world that the reach of the U.S. government in battling its enemies will not be limitless.
While Obama says he has no plans to diminish counterterrorism operations abroad, the notion that a president can circumvent long-standing U.S. laws simply by declaring war was halted by executive order in the Oval Office.
Key components of the secret structure developed under Bush are being swept away: The military's Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility, where the rights of habeas corpus and due process had been denied detainees, will close, and the CIA is now prohibited from maintaining its own overseas prisons. And in a broad swipe at the Bush administration's lawyers, Obama nullified every legal order and opinion on interrogations issued by any lawyer in the executive branch after Sept. 11, 2001.

Just wait until the jihadis finally blow up and American school, mall, or hospital, and we’ll see how fast Obama changes his mind.
Not a real war--but a "war". It was one man's fantasy.
And now we're free of all THAT silliness.
So what’s the over under on how long til the mooselimb crazies hit the U.S. like 9-11 again?
Ya know with the “magic negro” in charge it’s gonna happen.
Sorry, but 0bama will only use an attack on American soil to declare a state of emergency, call out the military, and take away our guns. Elections have consequences. Thank you RNC for running a moderate Republican, well liked by the press.
Thank you "conservatives" for not getting behind one of the other candidates.
The melt down and liquidation from within has been initiated.
And it was not one mans war, nor fantasy.
The war has been on for over 1300 years.
Those who lose sight of that WILL allow the melt down to continue.
From HumanEvents.com, April 29, 2008:
"By all accounts, he [Obama friend and associate, Bill Ayers] was a ferocious, violent, revolutionary Marxist in his halcyon days as a Weatherman leader. He and his Weatherman bombers were enamored of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung -- indeed, all the murderous heroes on the Left. Referring to the Weatherman members in August 1969, he said (according to the FBI): 'Were revolutionary Communists.'
He got off on the groups multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir.
Ideal Bombing Weather:
'Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,' he writes (although he concedes it was really a group effort). 'The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.' (p. 256 in the 2003 edition.)
Article: Obama and His Weatherman Friends
'Guilty as hell, free as a birdAmerica is a great country,' he [Ayers] said."
August 2001, Chicago Magazine (article: No Regrets)
"This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who's a professor of English..."
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
March 6, 1970: "three members of the Weather Underground accidentally killed themselves in a Manhattan townhouse while attempting to build a powerful bomb they had intended to plant at a social dance in Fort Dix, New Jersey -- an event that was to be attended by U.S. Army soldiers. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plot been successfully executed."
"The bomb was intended to be planted at a non-commissioned officer's dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
The bomb was packed with nails to inflict maximum casualties upon detonation."
2007 Fort Dix attack plot
A group of six radical Islamist men, allegedly plotting to stage an attack on the Fort Dix military base in New Jersey, United States, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on May 7, 2007. They were subsequently charged with planning an attack against U.S. soldiers. The alleged aim of the six men was said to be to "kill as many soldiers as possible". Their trial began on October 20, 2008. 
Opening arguments were presented on October 20, 2008.
Assistant U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick said the defendants were inspired by jihad saying "Their motive was to defend Islam. Their inspiration was Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.
the consequences of the botched Republican nominating process and McCain campaign begin to come into full view. In big and small ways, the campaign and , of course the press, failed to prosecute candidate Obama on the massive jeopardy to which he is willing to subject the nation in order to display a set of scruples not derived from American history (Harry Truman dropped the A-bomb on Japanese civilians, you don’t have to go any further than that to understand what American war-making was about), but from some Utopian socialist agenda whose aim is to break down the national sovereignty of the U.S. McCain’s “me-too” on torture disarmed him , and gifting Obama with 45 minutes less debate time on foreign policy in the first debate, even scotched any chance that the misdirected vision of Obama would be revealed.
Dana Priest has had BDS for many years. She really should get treatment.
All she really knows here is that Bambi declared an end to torture, ordered Gitmo closed in a year and stated that he would, in effect, follow the existing plans involving Iraq and Afghanistan.
I really doubt that he will ever actually pull all of the combat brigades out of Iraq, though.
If we now have the luxury to worry about such things, it's because of how the war was waged until now. If the threat grows again, you can be sure it will be portrayed as "anger caused by Bush's torture tactics" or somesuch nonsense.
Don’t forget that his first official phone call as President was to Mohammed Abbas.
We must begin now to re-vamp the party rules that allow people other than registered Republicans to vote in our primaries. When Independents/same-day-registered “Republicans” can vote, the Dems aided by their shills in the press control the person ‘we’ select. The result is McCain and then Obama.

The Real Story Behind Rev. Wright's Controversial Black Liberation Theology Doctrine
Monday , May 5, 2008
[special Friday night edition--original airdate May 2, 2008]
(some key excerpts)
["(Jose) Diaz-Balart is the son of Rafael Diaz-Balart y Guitierrez (a former Cuban politician). He has three bothers, Rafael Diaz-Balart (a banker), Mario Diaz-Balart (a US Congressman) and Lincoln Diaz-Balart (also a US Congressman). His aunt, Mirta Diaz-Balart, was Fidel Castro's first wife."
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO NETWORK: "Liberation theology in Nicaragua in the mid-1980's was a pro-Sandinista, pro-Marxist, anti-U.S., anti-Catholic Church movement. That's it. No ifs, ands, or buts. His church apparently supported, in the mid-'80s in Nicaragua, groups that supported the Sandinista dictatorships and that were opposed to the Contras whose reason for being was calling for elections. That's all I know. I was there.
I saw the churches in Nicaragua that he spoke of, and the churches were churches that talked about the need for violent revolution and I remember clearly one of the major churches in Managua where the Jesus Christ on the altar was not Jesus Christ, he was a Sandinista soldier, and the priests talked about the corruption of the West, talked about the need for revolution everywhere, and talked about 'the evil empire' which was the United States of America."
REV. BOB SCHENCK, NATIONAL CLERGY COUNCIL: "it's based in Marxism. At the core of his [Wright's] theology is really an anti-Christian understanding of God, and as part of a long history of individuals who actually advocate using violence in overthrowing those they perceive to be oppressing them, even acts of murder have been defended by followers of liberation theology. That's very, very dangerous."
SCHENCK: "I was actually the only person escorted to Dr. Wright. He asked to see me, and I simply welcomed him to Washington, and then I said Dr. Wright, I want to bring you a warning: your embrace of Marxist liberation theology. It is contrary to the Gospel, and you need, sir, to abandon it. And at that he dropped the handshake and made it clear that he was not in the mood to dialogue on that point."

"Their founding document [the Weather Underground's] called for the establishment of a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other "anti-colonial" movements to achieve "the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism."..."-Berger, Dan (2006).

"they [the Weather Underground] employed revolutionary jargon, advocated armed struggle and black liberation and began bombing buildings, taking responsibility for at least 20 attacks. Estimates of their number ranged at times from several dozen to several hundred."

"Why did it take a bunch of Arabs to do what you all should have done a long time ago?"
August, 2003: Ward Churchill Caught On Tape Advocating Terrorism [vs Fellow Americans]
Audio link at Michell Malkin's website (included below)
Question from audience:
You mentioned a little bit ago, "Why did it take a bunch of Arabs to do what you all should have done a long time ago," that's my question.
Churchill: I'm gonna repeat that, tell me if I got that right: Why shouldn't we do something and how do you you move so they don't see you coming.
As to the first part, not a reason in the world that I could see. I can't find a single reason that you shouldn't in a principled way there may be some practical considerations, such as do you know how (laughter from audience)
you know, often these things are processes. It's not just an impulse. And certainly it's not just an event.
And the simple answer, although it probably should be more complicated, but I'm not being flip and giving the simple answer, is:
You carry the weapon. That's how they don't see it coming. You're the one...
They talk about "color blind or blind to your color." You said it yourself.
You don't send the Black Liberation Army into Wall Street to conduct an action.
You don't send the American Indian Movement into downtown Seattle to conduct an action.
Who do you send? You. Your beard shaved, your hair cut close, and wearing a banker's suit.
There's probably a whole lot more to it, you know that. But there's where you start. .."

And in hopping to the job he appeased and placated the host nations of the criminals.... basically all islam states... all applauded his actions. All US’s enemies revelled in the move.
Now all he has to do is start dismantling the CIA and the military. Thats probably monday’s business.
.Or the American people change Presidents.
When the scenario you describe happens, then Joe Biden will try to tell us he told us so.
Then is when the American people need to give these two grifters the heave-ho.
I think this - like the call to Abbas - is simply the start of his pro-Muslim strategy.
I definitely agree with you there. But it was embarassing reading comments from people who wouldn’t vote for Romney due to his religion. (I’m not saying he’d have been my pick, but seeing how the economy killed McCain, Romney would have been the perfect person to get up at those debates and destroy Obama.)
I will never be able to support Obama after this. He is what a real failure looks like. The sad thing is this bozo really believes all that leftist BS about war. My fifteen year old had plans to enlist after HS but now says he won’t serve under Obama.
You nailed it. Why should the Republican party allow DEMOCRATS (New Hampshire, for example) to choose their candidate? That is EXACTLY what happened with McCain.
Why is it that "conservatives" are the only ones who are ever held to account?
Why is this idiot making himself such an easy political target? People really don't like terrorists. There is no groundswell against the War on Terror. While I would have appreciated more clarity in our war terminology, such as "war against radical Islam," now I appreciate President Bush's choice of wordsjust as ZerObama apparently does not. Everybody's against "terror."
Obomber's political support on all fronts is about to bleed away, from this day forward, with a thousand goofs like this. For all his PR, he is tone-deaf. (And a lousy defense strategist, it goes without saying.)
I just got one of those Nigerian scam mails, but this one came from 0’s new head of the treasury. Anyone else getting this?
One day in office and he already has American blood on his hands....
Your quite welcome. When there was a candidate worth getting behind, i.e., when Sarah Palin joined the race, we “conservatives” got behind her, dispite the RINO at the front of the ticket. The other candidates all had one thing or another to prevent complete unity of support, but Sarah is special!
My 14-year-old has always had a dream of serving in the military, too, but he won’t serve under Hussein, either.
And about Obama killing the War on Terror - I don’t plan to go to any national landmarks, big cities, or areas where large groups of people congregate (football, basketball, hockey games, etc.) in the next 4 years because we WILL be hit. Innocent Americans ARE going to die because of Obama’s hatred of the war. I give it 18 months at the most.
You do realize being a conservative means you are a minority group with the GOP? Who says we were not behind other candidates? You?
A lot went wrong this elections cycle and my experience with it, indicates it was all an internal mess.
Right now I really do not care if we are attacked. Sure it will suck, but how bad can you feel for a country who knowingly invites attacks?
Out in the real world laws do not mater, to those who choose to ignore them, and in a fight the most ruthless and brutal fighter will win. We no longer have the desire to win, only to play nice.
zero is a muzzie... and he will try to help his fellow satanists destroy America. Buy guns and ammo now... buy as much as you can afford.
I’d say five years on the over under. They can now begin to rebuild their capabilities then get into specific planning. It all will take time, the sad part being he might be re-elected before the inevitable big one happens.
White conservatives will get the blame for that one.
I’m fairly surprised there are folks here
that have such passion regarding our country.
Never thought I’d even entertain the thought..
but I may have to inject my opinions in the local
Somehow conservatives need to re-energize the normal(non-washington) folks and take back control of our country.
to those of you that are truly offended by the current political trends,
Get off your butts and figure out how you can get into some office since this seems to be the only way to make a bulk difference. Look....
I hate the idea too but it kinda has to be done this way.
So if a fraud like BO can do it,
so can you.
Do a private reply back to me if you of like mind - Georgia is my state - so respond accordingly.
My thought is that we'll first get something like that the Atocha train terrorist attack they had in Spain.
Worse is to follow.
They should've listened to Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter. So many Consrvatives were cowed by the vicious smear campaign against Ann Coulter that they screwed up royally and John McInsane came to the fore.
Pro-queer agenda, Pro-abortion, and Anti-gun was and is Mutt Romney’s problem. It had nothing to do with religion!
“Im fairly surprised there are folks here
that have such passion regarding our country.”
Then you just haven’t been paying attention.
Sad, isn’t it. What could we do with open primaries and dems switching parties in other states to make McCain “our choice”?
Now is the time to make changes in the primary process or it’s futile in the future.
How are we going to change this, Freepers?
I don’t think obama is going to change his mind. Destruction of Americans IS his mind. We people are dispensible. He, and the powers that be, are ALL that matters, and the loss of a few thousand of *us* is ok with him if it results in more power for *them*.
Yes they do. Their 'compassion' is about to be tested in real dollar terms, and they like the liberals know them to be, will always blame conservatives for causing their financial crisis. Liberals know these RINOs are so like them, neither ever take measure of themselves as to how they got to where they are, there is always someone else to blame.
Social liberals have deceived themselves into the delusion they are fiscally conservative.
0 is going back to "it's a criminal matter" approach. We try to catch them after the fact and then convict them in court and put them in jail. I'm sure the media will proclaim the nobility of this and how successful it is because we won't be attacked for a long time.
Nobody will actually look and see we won't be attacked because GWB dismantled their networks, destroyed the training areas, killed most of their leadership and has made it much harder for them to finance operations. 0 will get all the praise and benefit of someone else's hard lifting.
If the muzzies aren’t doing terror they are planning and armning. The only way to stop the cycle is to totally eliminate them.
We are back to the clinton era. We will prosecute them after we’re hit. What a joke.
Pray for W, America and Obama’s Guidance
Is this being applauded? I’m confused on this, they think this is a GOOD thing? I mean I know they want Gitmo closed and supposed “torture” to end, but they really wanted the “War on Terror” to end?
This is worse than I ever imagined.
leadership is a top down thing - look for morale in the ranks to start eroding slowly - combat teams will be a little less effective because they will have to think twice - always wondering if they have their backs covered, re-enlistment numbers will suffer, early retirements will increase, the enemy will be imboldened a little more each day...the world just became a much more dangerous place for us again...
