Obama Czar John Brennan: 20% of Terrorists Going Back to Battle to Kill Americans "isn't that Bad"
Associated Content (AC) ^ | February 16, 2010 | Marc Schenker

Posted on 02/16/2010 1:15:13 AM PST by Suvroc10

Barack Obama's Terror Czar John Brennan says that 20% of the released terrorists going back to the battlefield to kill Americans and others "isn't that bad." In another "What the hell did you just say?!"-moment that's becoming, sadly, increasingly common with Obama's rogue terror czar, John Brennan was speaking at—of all places!—the Islamic Center of New York University just this past Saturday. Since it was the Islamic Center and all, what better venue for John Brennan to spout another completely shocking and widely condemnable opinion that just confirms all the prior criticism that's rightfully been swirling around him for months! You know, just the same old, same old criticism that he's not up to the job, is inept, or simply is too liberal to be effective at his post as terror czar.

80% is considered an A grade in the 0bama administration.

Well, Brennen is obviously an idiot and a traitor ... but I’ll say this: Maybe they will not be so lucky as to get captured when they try again.

A bullet is cheaper than a trial and incarceration.... or worse yet; possible release into the streets of America.

Brennan is one of the worst liberal turds around — rose by being a typical bureaucratic ass-kisser to fellow libs...... from what I’ve read about him, he’s never done much of value for any operations, simply kissed ass and punched the timeclock while others in the CIA did the real work.

Now he *proves* again that he is a politically correct MORON..... so he’d rather have 20% (or eventually a LOT MORE) of these terrorist prisoners going back out to kill our people..... so let’s see, out of maybe 500 or so released so far, if “only” 100 are back out there killing us (at least of those we know about), then this turd thinks that’s OK??????????????

“A homosexual congressman from Colorado has proposed a law critics say would give controversial federal school safety czar Kevin Jennings – a longtime homosexual-rights advocate – almost unlimited authority to mandate indoctrination in public schools at taxpayer expense.”
[Another good article by Worldnetdaily — spelled ‘net’.]

http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/06/obama-appointee-kevin-jennings-fisting-and-fk-em-to-the-religious-right.html

Huffington Post is really thrilled to vindicate Kevin Jennings:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/06/fox-news-correction-false_n_311734.html
“The specific claim involved an accusation that Jennings had covered up “statutory rape,” based on an incident when Jennings was a teacher, when a “teenager confided in him about having sex with a stranger and Jennings didn’t report it to authorities.” Media Matters ended up proving there was no basis to the claim. Via The Plum Line: On Friday Media Matters produced what it said was the kid’s drivers license, showing that the kid was 16, legal age of consent in Massachuttes, and also produced a Facebook exchange that seemed to show that a Fox News reporter had been informed directly by the kid himself that they’d misrepresented his age.”

[So the kid was sixteen years old, and a teacher was sodomizing him? Oh, that should make us feel better. I would be confused too as a reporter.]

I wouldn’t be surprised if America’s anchor man covers this though. We don’t need the stinking drive-bys. In fact, I don’t think we even need Steele or the RNC. I believe we have what we need — men like Hayworth, Rush, Hannity, and Levin. We have women like Coulter, Michele Bachmann, and Malkin.

They did have it on Fox last night, he said that the 20% recidivism rate was fine because here in the states our criminals have a recidivism rate of over 50%. Con. Peter King replied that Brennan compares Shoplifters with terrorists! He needs to go!

Tyhe perfect Solution - send Brennan over to Afghanistan and let him talk to the 20% of the terrorists whom have returned to the battlefield. Give him a pistol with only 20% of the available amount of bullets in the chamber. Give him a vehicle with only 20% of the gas it needs to run with. Opps I get it the O administration is only 20% effective for America. Keep in mind O believes 54% is a B+. 20% is probably a C-, in the O Adminstration. Great minds think alike - inability to reason. More Morons.

So a return rate of 20% “isn’t that bad.” Well, mr. czar, 100% of them hate us, the U.S. and everything we stand for. They hate, our believes, our way of life, our strengths, our Flag, our very existence. They hate EVERYTHING we represent, even you!!!

It's insane to compare a released 20% POW recidivism rate to a 50% rate among common criminals who have the constitutional protections of limited prison terms.

POW handling ought to be zero-tolerance. No release if there's any chance they'll be back out trying to harm Americans.

But I forget. This administration isn't fighting a war. It's conducting a bleeding-heart "law enforcement" action. Same strategy that got us 9/11 and all those other attacks -- and will get us more to come.

maybe all these a-clowns could be required to fly around (over the oceans, not land) in planes that have “only 20%” chance of catastrophic failure on each flight (of course not involving any innocent people)

hey, 20% is so much less than 50% so why should anyone be concerned????

It’s no trouble. Very dirty politics here.

This liberal BTW failed to qualify.

The state rats will choose whoever they want to replace Bayh.

The Republican are stuck with a trio of electable but less less than ideal candidates to choose from. Bayh scared off the strongest potential Republicans from running. I almost admire this shenanigan, quite a brilliant ploy.
