Huh! Is this for real?
This is not plausable debiability but a combination of Alinski and Islam sticking it to us.
Obama wants to give the guy a medal instead.
yeah it is.....lockerbie bomber released back to Libya & now this? these are so da*n back room deals the bam is making to take this country down aren’t they the killer is these deals are being made right in front of our faces and this dealer from 1600 PA Ave is just laughing all the way and protecting his islamic pals here in high & low places in the US makes me sick sick sick somebody needs to start impeachment proceedings
It’s a muslim thing.
Will Ft. Hood ‘s Islamic Butcher will be next? Stay tuned to the Obama Channel to find out-All Islam All The Time!
It is politics at this point said one military official. Do we need to make a list with two columns, one of Obama actions supporting Muslims, and the other supporting the USA? It is no wonder that people think that Imam Obama is a Muslim!
Another case of the ****ing kenyan muzzie helping his brethren.
all politics is local.
pres_ _ent Obama is a SOA working for the US enemy.
anyone who thinks otherwise is asleep or dead.
It is a good thing Gitmo is still open, and this guy is still there. If he were in a civilian prison somewhere on the "mainland" of the USA, I think even the inmates would have taken care of him for us. Perhaps the Liberals should be happy Obama has not been successful in closing Gitmo's prison. One of their America-hating ilk would have been found beaten, or even dead, or at least made to suffer multiple indignities.
nobama...mooslim or not? who cares. what is apparent is that nobama hates America, Individual freedom, Americans and Capitalism. nobama should be arrested and tried for hate crimes against America.
Just as the taking of hostages on U.S. soil in our embassy in Iran all those years ago was an Act of War, so was this bombing. Prosecution?? Why was that the response to an Act of War and why in h*ll is it being stopped? What is it going to take for Americans to comprehend??!!
If Bammo wanted to assume supreme power, he just screwed up any chance of military support, quite the contrary...
My thoughts exactly if this is true.
We must reflect our outrage at this egregious action in November in the voting booth: If you remember nothing else when you vote, Remember the Cole!
Is this what we expected from our historic First Black President?
Or is this what we would expect from our first Islamic President?
* It is not what he says (or reads from the Teleprompter) he is what he does. And he has again given us further proof of his real loyalty. To support dropping these charges and not fighting to maintain them is close to a treasonous act. I would assume the dead sailors would feel the same.
He Never loved his country and was never loyal to it
He Never respected his country, He only respects his ideology
And his empathy for Islam has now gone too far!
Voting in November? Vote them out!
REMEMBER THE COLE!
This has nothing to do with reaching out to the Muslim world or hating America (although both might be factors later). This is election-year politics, pure and simple. Obama and the demonrats do not want to get their whacko left-wing angry at them again by holding military commissions at the still open Guantanamo Bay (EVIL, George Bush) facility until after the elections.
Forget the victims and families of the victims - most of them probably don’t vote for demonrats, anyway - keep the lefty base out of the picture so you can hold onto their campaign funds.
WHAT! Impeach this fool, now.
Muslim traitor ping!
Believe it or not, you’re likely right. A good chunk of American now realize he’s a Muslim, so why not start officially acting like one?
The article said this was posted Thursday night? Thursday, August 26, 2010; 8:47 PM
Of course he did. Any other action would help his country.
obama did a good job of hiding his muslim side, but over time a person’s true self comes out.
Based on what they are doing, there is no muslim that will be prosecuted under this regime no matter what they do.
I guess the dimrat party has partnered up with the radical muslims. They are acting in the same interest and apparently have the same goal.
That is what the voters said, via their votes, they wanted. They wanted change, and by golly,they are going to get it. They should have thought about stuff like this happening before they voted.
“Prosecution?? Why was that the response to an Act of War and why in h*ll is it being stopped? “
Better to stop a prosecution of a terrorist if you’re not sure you’re going to win. If we prosecute him and lose, we’ll have to cut him loose. As it is, he stays in Guantanamo. I have no problem with keeping him there without a trial until we’re sure we’re going to win. Remember that the original plan with all the Guantanamo detainees was that they would never get a trial. So why is there a rush to have one now?
You know not of what you speak. Sounds like DUmmie misinformation to me...
In all fairness, why was`nt the Cole bomber prosecuted during Bush`s terms? Was`nt 8 years long enough to build a case against him?
“You know not of what you speak.”
You’re missing my point, which is that it’s better to keep the bad guys in jail rather than going to trial without an airtight case. But okay, I’m a sucker for this sort of thing. Fill me in. Where did you read that the original plan early in the War on Terror was that the terrorist-detainees at Guantanamo would have the rights to a trial? I thought that was a large part of the reasoning for putting them in Guantanamo. They would not be on US soil and would not be afforded the protections of the US constitution: thus no right to know the specific charges against them, no rights to counsel, and no rights to a trial.
If anyone has any illusions about the nature of the Obama Junta and Holder’s DoJ, let them be cleared up here:
It does not matter if he is a Muslim or not, the results would still be the same.
It's not just a "muslim side." I think it's an anti-American, anti-captalist side. Holder and company put so much energy into going after Arizona and Sheriff Joe, there is none left for going after terrorists.
Meanwhile, Obama confesses US sins (including Arizona's new immigration law) to the "UN High Commissioner for Human Rights," with the implied message to thug governments around the world that "we are just as bad as they are."
I agree. In reading the full article, it’s evident to me that this is a bone thrown to zero’s far left flank, nothing more. Gates is a willing idiot, as usual. I think Nashiri will be successfully prosecuted eventually. The left still has their panties in a wad about Gitmo and claims of torture, so this is being done to placate them.
What would be amusing to see is for this story to go viral. It’d be fun to watch the zero admin, Holder and Gates having to walk it back and do the two-step shuffle when/if the rational public learns of this.
I agree. What the hell in any prosecution is going on that it should take that long to get off the ground? This should have been over and done with 5 years ago.
Bush, Rove and all those guys should have known after the ‘06 elections that this country was going to elect either Hillary Clinton or someone even worse. They should have buttoned up all these big cases and sent these animals to the livestock pen known as Federal Death Row long ago. Further, it should have been over and done prior to ‘06 anyway just as a matter of bringing justice to the country in general and to the families of the dead in particular.
If Bush had cleaned the rats out of the State Dept. and the Justice Dept. when he took office instead of leaving these people in their jobs to continue to wreak havoc on America, many things would have been done that should have been done when we had the reins of power but were not done due to “compassionate” conservatism or political correctness or “turn the other cheek” bullshit policies.
Bush did everything he could to prosecute this creep. But the military tribunal idea was held up in court for years, and then there were numerous other challenges and massive opposition from the Dems, who had an unshakeable majority. He finally managed to clear the way and the trial was actually supposed to start shortly after Obama took office.
Naturally, Obama and friends delayed it again, and while the way was eventually cleared, Obama obviously feels that it has been out of the public eye for so long that he can safely just drop it.
As for the State Dept., Bush did change the appointees that he could, but the problem with State is that many of these people are career employees, not appointees, and they go from administration to administration, unchanged and unchangeable. The State Dept. was infiltrated if not overtly taken over by leftist civil servants long ago, and now that they have a radical leftist/Islamist president and administration, they are are just handing it over to the Muslims.
I’m amazed at how soon people have forgotten the bitter battles Bush fought over military tribunals, Gitmo, etc., all of which affected this guy’s trial.
I feel safer already.
Guess the First Imam didn’t want to prosecute a “brother” in arms.
Agreed! Zero just gets worse and worse with each passing day.
I know it's an over used Cliche' however it is oh so appropriate....
This takes me back to the 60’s and O’s mentors - Davis, Dorn and Ayres - when a the counter culture cheered the deaths of GIs. Jane Fonda on the NVA AA gun. These guys are literally the spawn of the Weathermen and SDS.
Does anyone really expect this Administration to try, let alone execute, a brother Muslim?
