May 05, 2011 Debra Burlingame: Obama Says He Will Not Intervene With AG Holder Over Indictments of CIA Interrogators
Just over FoxNews now. As the wife sister of one of the victims of 9/11 -- and a persistent critic of Obama's policies -- she used the meet-and-greet as a chance to ask Obama about an issue that concerns her.
Holder's holding indictments over the heads of CIA interrogators -- the same ones who delivered bin Ladin to the SEALs.
Burlingame asked him about that, and said "I know you can't tell him what to do" (which isn't really true), and Obama said "That's right."
Then she asked, even if she couldn't order him to drop the prosecution of the interrogators who got bin Ladin, if he would at least offer Holder his opinion that there should be no prosecutions, he answered: "No, I won't."
Huh. Big Damn Hero, huh?
She went on to note that, last May, a Dallas US Attorney sought to indict CAIR officials (for terrorist ties and terrorist funding, of course), and Holder quashed those indictments.
We're in the very best of hands, as Instapundit says.
Let Obama explain why he won't, especially now that he's gloating over something that SURELY wouldn't have happened absent the work of these fine Americans.
Gutsy call, Mr. _resident, Gusty call. /dripping sarc
Major Garrett was also interviewed on Steve’s show the following hour and he said there’s no way this would go to trial.
Perhaps he will bring Holder to meet the Teams then they can both arrest them for the hit on Osama....
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Thank the Lord we got Tom McClintock in there to replace John!!!
Maybe, maybe not. But, whatever happens, I'm sure the legal fees are bankrupting the "suspects".
Lawyers have a phrase for this - You can beat the rap, but you can't beat the ride.
I can only hope the military is getting more an more POed at the usurper.
Here’s a link to Debra’s interview with Steve Malzberg, it’s under featured interview:
Funny you should say that. I met a military guy in (an unnamed-branch-of-the-military) at a (——) store while I was shopping. We had a very interesting conversation about he and his fellows’ regard for our ‘resident in chief.
Matter of fact, his opinion was about the same as a group of young Marines we had over for dinner a while ago...
I fail to see why anyone would be the least bit surprised by this. Little bammy the nut-job let others go to prison over his BC, which he then "produced" when his damn POLL NUMBERS were in jeopardy.
Sick minded narcissistic communist is perhaps the most polite description of him/it.
Put nothing past him/it, believe nothing you hear from him/it and it would be advisable to believe only 10% of what you actually see him do.
After all, he BELIEVES he is The One and we are "slugs."
I so sorry Tom didn’t get elected governor. California was voted the worst place to do business every year Schwarzenegger served. And now Indonesia oil bag man Jerry with his Air Resources hand picked board of goons is in charge. It’s frightfully depressing.
That little rant made no sense except that you hate President Bush. BTW, obama sucks.
It's stuff like this that GUARANTEES that happening.
SO GLAD HE’S NOT MY PRESIDENT.
