Posted on 04/30/2009 10:32:10 AM PDT by Blue Turtle
Moving quickly to release Chinese Uighur terrorists into the United States, Obama administration officials have -- for the second time -- overridden objections of federal agencies responsible for national security.
The first time -- as I reported on April 20 -- the White House overrode the inter-agency panel it created from all the national security agencies to review all the cases of the Guantanamo Bay prisoners. That panel found that the seventeen Uighurs -- members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement captured at an al-Queda training camp in Pakistan -- were too dangerous to release in the United States.

Gonna be a lot of blood on Borat Insane’s hands.
Son of a b*&^%!
Are they going to get them jobs as “community organizers”
Maybe get them some digs in Bam’s Chicago neighborhood?
...freed-up the Justice Department to pursue criminal prosecution of the Bush Administration officials responsible for torturing these Chinese immigrants.
Just remember, when these people start killing Americans on American soil, zero OWNS the issue. He can’t blame it on Bush, neocons, conservatives or anything else.
That won’t ease the pain felt by the families of those these murderers kill, but it is an issue we can/will run with.
This is despicable and I hope stuff like this eventually leads to the death of the leftist party.
The rubber is beginning to hit the road. He’s backed into a corner, can’t release em, can’t keep em.
Obama administration in action they can’t do anything right.
“This is despicable and I hope stuff like this eventually leads to the death of the leftist party.”
It will lead to deaths. I just hope it ain’t my kids.
Drop them all off on the White House lawn.
There are a few spare rooms in the White House...
This is just payback for terrorist campaign donations. Obama is declaring war on the United States without firing a shot. Who is laughing now?
I guess this isn’t one of those decisions he plans to post for three days for public opinion.
Add one more impeachable offense against Obama. First the release of the CIA interrogations memos, now this, in May it will be the pictures release of captured terrorists and the fabricated lies that they have been tortured.
If they must be released, then walk them to the GITMO beach and say “you’re free to go.”
O’Mama’s one big middle finger to the USA. WEAK PUNK!
This idiot hates this free country. We have to combat him. We must resist. He is a laughable joke messing with things that are not jokes.
ACORN's gonna' need some door-to-door census people.
How long did they harp on Bush to “listen to the generals?”
Obama ignores all security measures he doesn’t agree with, which just may cost many American lives.
And somehow, should that happen, Bush will be blamed.
Its Bambi’s baby.
Obama:...doing the Job “American” presidents just wouldnt do...
We're working our way to becoming a Zimbabwe.
Argentina is a stepping stone to that end.
We will need a disaster before the sheeple wake up.
It's just a matter of time. I want to know - specifically - who authorized this. Obama himself? If so, we need to know who to blame when people die as a result of this decision. No obfuscations, we need names before the inevitable.
Move them into the White House’s guest house (the one that Obama was irked he could not live in while Bush was still in office).
what about the efforts towards hamas and a 20 million relocation cash for the settlers?
Whether he was truly born abroad, as is still suspect as he continues to litigate AGAINST releasing his birth certificate), or not is beside the point. He was schooled in Indonesia, considered himself to be a “Jakarta street kid”, and was raised on the knee of a Communist.
He does not believe in the American Dream.
Weren't it for a few of us getting killed, I wish these guys would hit one of our cities sooner than later. The left need a big wake up call.
From the article: The release may happen as early as next week and they could be released in the Alexandria/Washington DC area.
With Arlen and presumably Franken as Democrats, We're Screwed for at least 2 years.
He started the week with a terrorist fly-over of downtown NYC and he's heading into the final stretch by overriding the FBI and DHS on Uighur release in the U.S.
His terrorist supporters are getting good bang for their buck so far.
Let me guess. The memo said “I won”.
EXACTLY RIGHT! Impeachment procedures should have begun when the exalted one released those memos let alone this!
Hopefully, released by Air America at 30,000 feet over one of those two places....
Glenn Beck was somewhat amusing last night with his flashing red light and megaphone
(everything zero does is a crisis/hurry-up emergency)
Zero is rushing through issues to avoid having to go through proper channels.
The Blackberrry/Teleprompter made him do it, right?
I’m just wondering where the next hit will be.God help us all.
“Just remember, when these people start killing Americans on American soil, zero OWNS the issue.”
Yes, more vulnerable refugees who might be ‘recruited’ by extremists, i.e. brownshirts. Janet.....?
Diogenesis, your photos: Beck had a clip last night of BO boarding either AF 1 or Marine 1-—and BO deliberately did NOT salute the Marine at attention. Maybe you can add that image to your composite of the Anti-American poser-in-chief photos.
Let’s hope the terrorists’ first official act of freedom is to terrorize the Congressional idiots who support this moron. They’re being dropped in the right neighborhood.
April 30, 2010 Washington - President Obama (pbuh), in response to inquiries regarding the recent attack by the 17 ETIM Uighars, released the following statement:
"Although my administration made every possible attempt to allow these 17 men a chance to return to a normal life and assimilate into American society, the inhumane and cruel treatment they endured while prisoners of the evil neo conservative Bush Regime proved to much. It is unfortunate that these poor men felt the need to act out in such a way - but it is the failed policies of the previous adminstration which are to blame. Thankfully, the Senate has recently ratified our entry into the International Criminal Court and the Attorney General has already provided the court with all necessary documents. We mourn for the tragic loss of life and pray for the family of the Uighar 17."
Just another coffin nail.
They would just blame it on Bush - he made them angry by locking them up.
