I am, extremely pleased and grateful that American Navy Seals have captured international al-Qaeda terrorist, Anas al-Liby, and are holding him on a ship in the Mediterranean.
The big question is, what happens when the strong hands of the military and intelligence agencies relinquish him into the kid glove covered hands of Eric Holder and his circus of bleeding hearts who can't tell the difference between a convenience store robber and a terrorist responsible for the murder of untold numbers of innocent human beings?
Holder's, and therefore by extension, Obama's attitude toward trying terrorists is naive and idealistic, to say the least, and extremely dangerous, to say the most, as he seems to believe that al-Qaeda operatives are entitled to rights guaranteed only to American citizens under the constitution.
All a captured terrorist has to do is make it through a round of questioning until the Holder Calvary arrives and reads him Miranda rights he's not entitled to and whisks him away to some stateside jail to lawyer up with some headline seeking attorney who gives not a whit for American security and the safety of it's citizens as long as the media spells his name right.
al-Liby is a declared enemy of the United States, a foreign combatant by any measure and should be taken to Guantanamo Bay and pumped for information for as many years it takes to extract all the intelligence he can provide. There are millions of lives at stake here.
We can never win the War on Terror, and no matter what the Obama Administration is calling it this week, it is a War On Terror and we cannot win it until we can start acknowledging that these scumbags forfeited their right to being treated like just another criminal, that they are engaged in an ongoing violent effort to destroy us and everything we stand for.
We are dealing with people who take innocent human life without remorse or conscience, mass murderers, monsters who hide behind a violent religious dogma which supposedly grants them the license to commit any atrocity, no matter how bloody as long as it is done for the greater glory of Islam.
They have no rules, no morals and no right to be treated like any other class of criminal.
They do not or should not have the same kind of client-attorney privileges afforded ordinary criminals should not be Mirandized and should not be tried by any other system than a military tribunal.
Holder acts like he's teaching a law class in a university conducting mock trials that really have no significance except which side wins.
Trying these terrorists on American soil is unnecessary, unwise and downright dangerous and here are the reasons.
First of all, they should all be tried by military tribunal.
The cost of security for a trial in America would run in the hundreds of millions, money that neither the states nor the federal government have.
There is the very real possibility of terrorist attack, which wouldn't have to be a concerted effort by foreign terrorists but independent action from some homegrown fruitcakes trying to earn their virgins by taking out a street full of Americans.
Remember the Boston Marathon?
Why should the safety and wellbeing of some American town be put in jeopardy simply to massage the ego of one arrogant little attorney general, who, to quote the Bard, struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem
God Bless America
