Skip to comments.Fox: Obama blocking prosecution of Gitmo terrorists
Posted on 03/21/2011 9:08:50 AM PDT by pabianice
Navy lawyers on Fox. They say Obama is blocking military prosecution of terrorists held at Gitmo by blocking any money needed to proceed and by throwing up roadblocks. Obama has no intention of allowing these murderers to be tried by military commissions. Apparently, he plans to quietly release them at some time.
Surprising that military people are saying so in public. Suggests a growing divide between Obama and the military. (As an aside, military is against our actions in Libya but is following orders).
“I’ve got to protect my people.”
I see nothing wrong with quietly releasing them. They could take them up in a helicopter and release them. Or better yet take them out in the middle of the Ocean and release them at night. Quietly of course.
Easy, big guy. We don’t want to go down that path. That would be the destruction of our country. We can endure this SOB without committing suicide as a nation. That is exactly what destroyed the Roman Republic.
I thought homos destroyed Rome.
Isn’t it normal to try and get family members out of jail?
Shocking! Simply shocking!
Actually, IMHO allowing the Huns and other barbarians take up residence inside the borders of the empire was responsible for the fall of Rome. But we would never allow something like that to happen./sarc
He controls TV so he controls the nation. Thanks to drooling idiots who watch Tv - they empower him. The country is being destroyed. Guess you are not paying attention.
Open borders (invaders), corruption and Roman troops off on mickey mouse bs missions destroyed Rome. Just like Obam-America today. Nero was not as bad as the usurper.
Keep watching TV and keep supportin him.
It sounds like he intends to presidentially pardon all of them at the end of his term.
I can’t imagine how his wife can go along with this.
Why would Michelle care? Particularly if some of the men detained are "persons of color." That's more important than if they are trying to kill Americans.
They grew fat and lazy and started to consume meals at McCaesars!
That may have destroyed the EMPIRE....but what destroyed the REPUBLIC was resorting to extra legal means to change power. Sulla, Brutus and Caesar destroyed the Republic way before the Barbarians came in.
Great, thanks for clarifying.
While Obama might flourish in the Islamic country that he flees to at an appropriate time, his wife probably would object to being hidden away in a burqa, considering what a fashion maven she is supposed to be.
Or for her kid’s sake, if being a prideful American is not a priority for her.
Rome never fell. It just shifted east to Constantinople, taking all the brains and money with it.
Someone explained it to me with this..(Not sure if true)
In the Muslim faith...no Muslim shall seek the death of another Muslim...Military tribunals— obama being commander in chief..must sign off on the verdict.. (death sentence)
civilian courts... Obama’s signature not required... a judge can sign off.
Sorry, don’t know enough about the culture to say if this is plausible...this was part of the argument that Obama was Muslim...who knows.....
Anyway, things might just get dragged out for so long that he is no longer President...assuming he plans to abide by the 22nd Amendment. Of course if he doesn't have to abide by the natural-born citizen requirement, why should he care about the term limits? (Only other Democrat politicians will.)
This may come as a surprise to you, but some people are capable of filtering the b$ on TV and actually learn from the experience.
Your continual rant is getting a little old.
A little historical perspective would be useful!
