Skip to comments.GOP congressman: Dems put terrorists' rights before Americans' safety

Democrats in Congress care more about protecting terrorists' rights than protecting the American public, a Republican lawmaker charged Wednesday.
Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) made the incendiary claim during an interview on a conservative news radio program that the decision to close the terrorist detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba would "strengthen the hands of terrorists."
"I've been on the Judiciary Committee as well as the Armed Services Committee, and it has bewildered me as to why this Democratic majority has worked to seemingly protect the rights of terrorists more than to protect the American people," Franks said in an interview on the "Dateline Washington" program.
"I think it will even catalyze the recruitment of terrorists within America," he added.

The first sentence has an error in it.
Terrorists don’t have rights.
No doubt, all in the effort to keep Americans safe...../s
Duh, anyone think not?
Where’s Captain Obvious?
“Wheres Captain Obvious?”
He’s on his way!
According to Obama’s directives and actions they do as they are ‘refugees’

The Gitmo idea has been floating around for over a year.
He's finally worked up enough nerve to say something?
If the Rs weren't so dang timid, we might have a birth certificate by now.
Or a different President.
Liberals are oblivious to common sense and Captain Obvious
“Democratic majority has worked to seemingly protect the rights of terrorists”
These “terrorists” have no coverage under either the U.S. Constitution or the Geneva Convention!
They are unlawful combatants, and as such, are covered by neither.
The notion that our enemies around the world will think better of us for ignoring this distinction, is absurd.
According to the State Department Terrorists are Refugees.
Ever think such ludicrous actions would happen in the United States? Obama is beyond a liberal, he is aiding and abetting the enemy which is an impeachable offense. it is so unprecedented for a POTUS would a call for impeachment suffice? Why is no one calling for this? Maybe someone will soon; since it took them months to finally say this.
Has anybody been watching this dept. that Hillary is the boss of? Full of Obama and Clinton cronies?
Obama’s State Department Submits to Islam
Samantha Power Working On Obama’s State Department Transition Team
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton
U.S. State Department Senior Officials
It is after all, TRUE.
