Hillary on Taliban Five: They’re not a threat to the U.S. because they’re going to be in Qatar
Hotair ^ | 06/18/2014 | Mary Katharine Ham

Last week, this unequivocal declaration sounded like a micalculation and misread of the situation:

“These five guys are not a threat to the United States,” says Clinton. “They are a threat to the safety and security of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It’s up to those two countries to make the decision once and for all that these are threats to them. So I think we may be kind of missing the bigger picture here. We want to get an American home, whether they fell off the ship because they were drunk or they were pushed or they jumped, we try to rescue everybody.”

Tonight, talking to Greta Van Susteren and Bret Baier on Fox News, Clinton expanded on her thoughts:

“In Qatar with an agreement that has been entered into, they are supposed to be constrained from what they can do, and certainly they are not supposed to be permitted to travel,” Clinton explained. “In that situation, they are not a threat.”

“Those five men they are, right now, not a danger if they are kept where they are supposed to be kept, but we still have to worry about the Taliban and everything they could be doing,” she added.


I feel like there was someone who had concerns about Qatar’s willingness and ability to secure such prisoners in 2009. Ahh, yes, it was Hillary’s State Department:

The State Department’s concerns about Qatar’s supervision of released militants were detailed in a diplomatic cable dated February 2009 by the U.S. embassy in Doha, Qatar’s capital, citing the case of Jarallah al-Marri, a former Guantanamo detainee released to Qatar in July 2008.

In the cable, the U.S. embassy criticized Qatar for failing to follow through on promises to bar al Marri from leaving Qatar, noting he made two trips to Britain since his release from Guantanamo, and that during his second visit, in early 2009, British authorities arrested him.

I, for one, think Hillary did a fabulous job with Greta tonight.

Yup,and there's surely no way that filthy moslem psychopaths could bribe (or intimidate) some government official into letting them leave.

I don't know, but it sure would be appropriate here.

Uhhhhh...a question from the back of the re-education camp?

They weren't captured in The US so why was they in Camp Gitmo in the first place?

Hillary, we have these things called telephones, email, video chat... all kinds of modern, common ccommunications. You don’t have to be someplace to direct actions and events there. You know, like protecting an embassy...

QATAR DONOR TO CLINTON FOUNDATION/LIBRARY: As Hollywood hotshots protest the Beverly Hills Hotel over its ownership by Brunei's sultan and his embrace of Sharia law, it turns out the Brunei government has financial connections to "The Clinton Foundation."

The tax-exempt, nonprofit Clinton foundation lists Brunei along with Kuwait, Oman and Qatar (new home of the Gitmo Five) as donors that gave between $1 million and $5 million through last year.

The Clinton foundation itself confirmed the 2002 Brunei donation: "The Clinton Foundation's impact would not be possible without the generous support of our donors," the foundation's website reads. "Their contributions have made a difference in the lives of tens of millions across the world." Read more at foxnews.com ...

In two years....when the five have disappeared into the sands of the Middle East and 9-11 version 2.0 occurs....and the CIA figures out that at least one...maybe even two....of these guys were responsible...what stone will Hillary and the rest of the administration hide under? It won’t matter what NBC’s journalists pretend to misjudge or just skip over...there will be an awful lot of us who will hold more than a normal typical grudge.

Clinton explained. “In that situation, they are not a threat.”

That statement may come back to haunt her.

It should be very clear to voters that a president Hillary administration would be a continuation of the brazen corruption under Obama.

“They are a threat to the safety and security of Afghanistan and Pakistan."

Who says they will automatically return to Afghanistan? What's to stop them from rejoining the fight in Iraq, Syria, or wherever?

There are bad guys that run drug rings from inside prison.

Just what the hell are these al-queerda guys constrained from doing just by virtue of being in Qatar?

The Glenn Close photo is Glenn playing Patty Hewes in the Damages series. She played a manipulative, back stabbing, power hungry wench; destroying everything in her path. Not a stretch for Mrs. Bill Clinton.

There is something wrong with Hillary (more than the usual stuff). She emits a gaffe every time she opens her mouth.

In the "old" United States this political skank would have been laughed to scorn.

But then again this is the "new" United States. We revel in such things as Political Correctness, Common Core, and open borders for political gain. We deserve what we get.

Ah yes. Qatar, the only nation in the world that recognizes an official international office of Al Qaeda. Qatar is a mecca for terrorism. Our corrupt government has been playing footsie with these slavers since the inception of our Grand Mufti’s administration. Is it any wonder we are losing the war on terrorism?

3:00am, Sunday, April 16, 2017. The Red Phone rings. A sleepy President answers.

“What the f*** is it? This had better be G** D*** important!”

“Madam President! A terrorist group, led by Mullah Mohammad Fazl and Mullah Norullah Noori has just blown up the New York Stock Exchange building!”

“Very funny! Those two are in custody in Quatar! Now leave me alone!” She slams down the phone.

[Huma yawns] “Who was that?”

“Oh, some idiot from the Pentagon.”

“You sure that wasn’t Bill?”

[Cackles] “Bill? No, he’s in Vegas with about six floozies and a bottle of Cialis.”
