Oh, but we’re not being lenient …

So much for pragmatism.

Less than a week after President Barack Obama dressed down and cast aside recommendations made by the CENTCOM Commander Gen. David Petraeus, Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen and his own Secretary of Defense in a meeting which left one observer saying that “Petraeus made the mistake of thinking he was still dealing with George Bush instead of with Barack Obama,” our 44th president is once again going against the advice of his military commanders on the ground. Today, he will likely drop charges against Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, known Al Qaeda terrorist and mastermind of the attack on the U.S.S. Cole in 2000, an attack which claimed the lives of 17 U.S. sailors.

Al-Nashiri is currently in the middle of the military commissions process set up by former President George W. Bush, charged with “organizing and directing” the Cole bombing and potentially facing the death penalty. Just last year, in a revelation which surely went straight to the bleeding hearts of those on the political left who live for the protection of those who would kill each and every one of us infidels if given the chance, al-Nashiri claimed that he only admitted to orchestrating the bombing because he was . . . wait for it . . . waterboarded.

Within hours of capturing the presidency, of course, Obama signed an executive order which would suspend all such proceedings and close Guantanamo Bay within a year. Nevertheless, the military judge supervising the case in question and in charge of all war crimes cases at Gitmo defied the presidential order and scheduled a hearing for al-Nashiri for Monday, arguing that Obama’s plans were “not reasonable” and hardly “in the interests of justice.”

However, despite being advised to the contrary once again by military commanders and officials on the ground, Obama will dismiss the charges against the Cole bomber because the military commissions set up by the Bush administration don’t jive with the methods by which Obama wants to polish up how America is perceived by the rest of the world.

Now, the terrorist will remain in custody, and the charges will likely be dropped without prejudice–meaning that they can be reinstated in another military commission or civilian court–but what kind of example does this send to those who would gladly die if it meant causing the death of Americans? Khalid Sheikh Mohammed laughed at the fact that we actually gave him a trial — now, news will circulate among our enemies that America is bending over backwards to accommodate terrorists who killed Americans.

And, worse yet, Obama has the audacity to claim that this is not an example of leniency. Of course it is. Today, he will announce that he would rather drop the charges and empower our enemies than let the war crimes trial go ahead and, God forbid, actually result in the death penalty for a murderer of American soldiers. And, much like the decision made regarding the detention facility itself, Obama will make today’s announcement without having thought through the consequences or even the next move.

His plans for Guantanamo Bay and the murderers housed there are rooted in hatred for George W. Bush. Just like how any hippie you’d encounter on the street or in Whole Foods would decry Bush’s “failed policies” without having any sort of viable, common sense solution of their own, Obama has ordered the suspension of the military tribunals because he simply deems them illegitimate, and he has done so without having any viable, common sense solution as to what to do next.

Now, we hold a terrorist–a murderer of 17 American sailors–without charge and pending decisions to be made down the road, likely involving civilian trials where al-Nashiri and his murderous comrades will be afforded the same, if not more, rights afforded to the Americans they wish to kill. How is that not lenient? How can Obama look in the eyes of those who lost a mother or father or son or daughter on that day eight years ago, or in the eyes of the commander who has shouldered that burden every day since, and say that justice is being served?

Barack Hussein Obama has been president of the United States for 17 days now, whether it be through his perceptible disdain for the military or his detente-at-all-costs approach to foreign policy, with every single passing day America is less safe than She was the day before.

    The people of the middle east are laughing at BHO right now. This, in their eyes can only be seen as a sign of weakness. This will prompt them to make more attacks. They know now that if they are caught, they will be treated with kid gloves, “The kinder, more understanding America”, this will be, in their eyes an almost surrender, this will make them more brutal to our military. Because they now know they are going to be treated better than the prisioners in our own prisions. This country has a long hard road ahead of it, both domestic and overseas. I just hope we can hold on until the conservatives finally make a complete comback to their roots…

    I believe that the most subtle of skills to be achieved by Presidents is in the area of foreign policy and national security. This task entails an appreciation for the complexity of the human condition, both good and bad, as seen through the prism of decades of time into the future.

    The President always has two options: the horror of war, or olive branch of peace. Big difference.

    The American Civil War was ferociously prosecuted for four long years by A. Lincoln (POTUS 16). He embraced the horrors of war, culminating on April 9, 1865. On that day, Lincoln (through Gen. Grant) decreed that no Confederate soldier would be further held liable, including Gen Lee. Just a week later, Lincoln lay dead, but Grant would not go back on his promise. Lee was still a free man (although Davis suffered house arrest). The hostilities that had raged were fully finished.

    On the other other hand, President W. Wilson (POTUS 28), a long time pacifist was reluctantly dragged to the horrors of World War One. Wilson was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and signed the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. In retrospect, the Treaty was a sham, and ensured that the hostilities would rage on, after a short intermission of a few decades.

    Fast forward to Harry Truman (POTUS 33) and we have again full blown embracement of the horrors of war, which quickly shifted to the olive branch of peace (Marshall Plan). In this regard, World War Two was successfully prosecuted like the American Civil War, and not at all like the First World War, which was a failure.

    These patterns are of interest to people who pay large sums to go to Universities to study them, and to people (like me) who stay up at night to read about them. There is a sharp demarcation which must happen, between the war and the peace. But these patterns (which involve millions of lives) are apparently of no interest to our current POTUS 44. He thinks it is a photo – op. If he directs the military to do “such and such”, he might get his picture on the cover of People Magazine. He is today’s “Peacemaker”. Who cares about tomorrow.

    Without a reprieve (impeachment of the POTUS) we are in for a real rocky road.

    What many of you do not believe is that Obama Hussein is a closet Muslim, a hidden Muslim.

    One thing you are forced to acknowledge is that Obama was Muslim when he lived in Indonesia with his Muslim step-father. Obama is even mentioned as being Muslim on his Indonesia school records.

    Now the situation is quite simple. He knew he would have an impossible task of succeeding in politics if he was to stay a Muslim. Therefore, he made the necessary move of becoming a Christian to insure any possible hope of a political career in the future. Does it mean he renounced being a Muslim? NO! Why NO? Because, when you learn to become a Muslim, you adopt Mohammed’s life as your role model in life. What was Mohammed’s life? Deceit to the highest level and to the vilest, evilest level possible! That is the reason why it was not hard at all for Obama to become a Christian officially while staying a Muslim privately.

    Hence, what did Obama do first in Office? Act on behalf of Muslims imprisoned!!!
    Make perfect sense for a closet Muslim. A true Christian would never ever have started his Office by such measures on behalf of Muslims implicated in terrorism!

    Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama is
    a fraud! I do not believe these are the kinds of public policies Americans who voted for him expected. He is acting more like a dictator. Where is the birth certificate? Obama has to go!

    Obama’s Do Or Die Ultimatum And Other Disturbing Developments
    “This recession might linger for years. Our economy will lose 5 million more jobs. Unemployment will approach double digits. Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse.” That’s what President Barack Obama wrote in an op-ed piece published in the Washington Post if Congress did not pass his massive stimulus legislation. I can’t recall in my lifetime a president making such a dire do or die pronouncement if his economic plan was not put into law. It is true that this recession is a major challenge for Americans, but so were the deep recessions in 1973-74 and 1981-82. The difference this time is that excesses are what has gotten us in this awful predicament. Given the staggering size of our national debt, a plan that adds more than $1 trillion in new debt could hardly be offered as our only way out of this mess. Massive government spending didn’t get us out of the Great Depression or any other economic downturn. Natural market forces, aided by tax cuts, have had far greater economic benefit than old-fashioned, make-work government spending.

    With his party in total control of our federal government, such talk from President Obama should have us all sitting up and taking notice. This is a man who has zero experience running any organization, let alone the most powerful country in the world. The stumbling start of an administration populated by certified Chicago political hacks guided and headed by the untested young leader with a messianic complex is less than comforting. Indicative of the mindset in the White House was today’s announcement that census officials will report directly to the White House rather than the Commerce Secretary after partisan Democrats expressed reservations about a Republican, Judd Gregg, being in charge of the department. In one fell swoop, this action wiped out the totality of bipartisan spirit the appointment of Gregg was supposed to engender. Can you imagine the reaction from Democrats if a Republican president announced the White House would take personal charge of the census? Shouldn’t we be concerned about the mischief Rahm Emanuel could create being in charged of deciding how many congressional seats will be allocated to each state after the new census?

    In his first week on the job, he took to the foreign airwaves in the Muslim world for his first interview and essentially apologized for how our country is to blame for Muslim grievances with the U.S. In the interview, he embraced his family’s Muslim heritage from which he spent the entire campaign last year running. Last week, President Obama signed an executive order to provide more than $20 million in emergency refugee assistance to Palestinians living in Gaza, paving the way for an influx of immigrants from this region into the United States. Talk to anyone who has visited France in the last couple of years and find out how the natives feel about all the rioting and social upheaval brought about by an immigrant population which refuses to accept the ways of a western culture and detests our democratic, civil law systems.

    When President Bush expanded funding for faith-based programs, the Left was all aflutter about the use of taxpayer money to fund conservative-leaning Christian groups. Those same liberals were noticeably silent when President Obama announced he was going to spend even more than Bush on faith-based programs and the money will be shared with Islamic mosques and charities, even as our own FBI has cut off relations with the Council on American-Islamic Relations because of its suspected terrorist ties after giving the group the benefit of the doubt for the past several years. CAIR patted the President on the back for using the Koran during his recent prayer breakfast speech:

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today welcomed President Barack Obama’s use of a quote from Islam’s Prophet Muhammad in his remarks at Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast.

    In his prepared remarks, President Obama quoted the prophetic tradition, or “hadith,” which states: “None of you truly believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.” That hadith may be found in Sahih Al-Bukhari, one of the most respected collections of the Prophet Muhammad’s statements and actions.

    On top of that, Obama disappointed families of the U.S. servicemen victims of the terrorist attack on the U.S.S. Cole when he announced the government would drop charges against terrorist suspect Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. The judge supervising al-Nashiri’s trial called Obama’s efforts to disrupt his criminal prosecution “not reasonable” and not “in the interests of justice.” The former commander of the U.S.S. Cole was more direct in his reaction. “I am concerned about the President considering dropping the charges because it may be indicative that the president does not intend to follow the military commissions process which has undergone extensive legal and legislative review,” said retired Commander Kirk Lippold. ABC News’ Jake Tapper notes that Obama pretty much tied his own hands with the handling of al-Nashiri when he signed an executive order halting all proceedings in U.S. Military Commissions.

    If you aren’t concerned yet about Obama’s leadership, you had better perk up soon. There is way too much at stake here to sit back and let this man have his way. He will have his way with the Democratic-controlled Congress only so long as he has the popular support of the American people. With fewer than three weeks under his belt, cracks in that support are already visible. And this isn’t about hoping for Obama to fail. It’s about hoping for what is best for America. Right now, I’m not convinced that what Obama wants for America is at all good for the future of our country.

    UPDATE: No sooner had I published this post than President Obama began what I can only describe as a highly partisan, hard-hitting attack against the GOP for opposing his trillion-dollar stimulus plan in a speech he is delivering at a posh resort where Democratic members of Congress are holding a retreat. Obama began by thanking the Democrats for giving him an excuse to take his first trip on Air Force One. When your first trip outside of D.C. is for a strictly partisan, political purpose, you aren’t exactly giving the GOP a reason to give you the bipartisan support you desire.

    According to the AP, Obama was to meet today with families of victims of 9/11 and those of the sailors killed by the Cole bombing. I wonder if all of the families of the slain sailors will show up and what they will say? Will it be just Obama giving a speech to a large group with no interaction? (That is what Cindy Sheehan said happened when she was given the opportunity to meet with President Bush. I am not taking her side, just noting that meeting with the president doesn’t not necessarily mean meeting with the president.) I would like to see the follow up. I would think most of them would be outraged.

    Two weeks and the Democrat pawns in Congress haven’t smelled the coffee yet!

    Wonder if laws can be enacted to mandate that governmental entities have to operate under a balanced budget? How about a cap-on-spending-law for the federal government? I’m going to see if I can get some input from former Government Accounting Office head David Walker. He’s now CEO of We the People Foundation, and he’s a “good guy.”

    Heard this a.m. on Boortz that there’s a law brewing to require a LICENSE to carry a concealed weapon–not just gun registration. For O-unholy-O to want this, it can’t be good. Neal went to THOMAS, the government website on bills and found out about this one.

    Sorry if I’m not making good sense yet–I JUST woke up and haven’t gotten the first cup of brain juice down yet.

    Jeff, thank you for this web page. Thank you for the articles by you and your incredible stable of writers. Thank you for your guidance. Thank you, folks, for all the comments that you bring to the table, too.

    I phoned a friend of mine at midnight last night because I wanted to hear a friendly voice and someone to wish a good night. She said that she understands that I am concerned about the politics currently flying around, but that she thinks that I needed to rest because it was having an effect on me that is not good. I know that, but I told her we have to be on alert because we have four years ahead of us, and Obama wants to turn this country into a dictatorship. That’s even worse than the bad effect his agenda is having on us.

    A friend from NC called me last night, and she admitted she had voted for Obama. I explained to her what he is doing (she doesn’t have the Internet, and she gets her information from the MSM), and she was stunned by what is going on! So, perhaps there is hope for us, if we can talk to those who put him in office. She was all for the Stimulus package until I explained that Americans would get 12 cents on the dollar; the rest goes for pork, political payback, special interest, and to other countries. She was quiet for a moment and then said, “Oh, NO! Are you SURE?” I told her I knew it for a fact. She did know about the two nominees who withdrew for tax problems–she had been surprised by that. When I got through filling her in on what Obama is doing and why, she doubted her vote for Obama as a wise choice.

    I’ll stop for now, but you know I’ll be back. Thanks again, everybody.

    Barrack Obama AKA Obimbo has all of the characteristics of an Adolph Hitler or a Napoleon. All of them love/loved attention and the world revolves/revolved around them. They are/were not here to serve the world, but for the world to serve them. Obimbo wants no one to challenge him or he cuts them off. He wants everyone to believe he is a man of peace, but he creates situations that lead to war and inflame people on both sides. He says he is a man of the Christian faith yet I see no example here to follow. His first days in office he called the Arab nations and he was also talking to them even before he was elected. If you really want peace why would you not have a phone call including both sides. Then he closes GITMO. This is against the constitution to allow our enemies to be free and bring them to our soil. This is the work of a Muslim devotee. Next he ties the hands of our military and tells them “I know best”. People out there we need the military! You may not like it and you may not like war, but this after all is not a perfect world and get used to it. Next he tells the public that all religious activities will cease in schools and he will ensure that no money is being spent on religion. What is next? Ban religious services altogether since they do not assist the state and arouse the people (to action)? His next task is to limit websites like this and people who oppose his agenda to keep us in the dark. So in essence Obimbo is taking away our freedoms one by one and raming these actions down our throats…What happened to the promise of allowing 5 days public review for legislation. He is weakening our military, but he plans to replace them by recruiting an army of domestic volunteers – Sound like Hitler’s youth groups? The muslims and Hitler collaborated with one another during WWII through the Grand Mufti who was the mentor of Arafat. There was even a Muslim Division fighting along side the Germans. They shared the same hatred of the Jews. Where did a lot of the German war criminals go? Try Egypt for one. Watch Obimbo closely because actions speak louder than words.

    Obama slips money to abortion industry thru “faith-based” program

    President Obama speaking at today’s National Day of Prayer breakfast in DC:

    “There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being. This much we know.”

    Oh, really?

    Directly afterward, Obama signed an executive order redirecting the focus of the faith-based initiatives program launched by his predecessor. According to NPR:

    The program departs from President Bush’s by focusing on family planning and Muslim outreach.
    Obama renamed the program the White House office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

    So here we see another way Obama is slipping money to the abortion industry, audaciously through “faith-based” taxpayer-funding on the National Day of Prayer after admitting God would not condone the taking of innocent human life.

    When you have a community organizer that has only been involved in campaigning for office and has no training in any subject but socialism you end up with an empty suit (B H Obama). There is no record that there has been any educational advancement in the individual because of sealed records which makes the suit even emptier. He has a proven record of coherent speech making, while using a teleprompter, but who wrote those speeches? He evidently didn’t, he has no record. As Glen Beck said tonight on the O’Reilly show; ‘He is leading us into Fascism, not Socialism’.

    Bobby K. you are right on.
    For people that still cut off a hand for stealing, this will be seen as a sign of weakness.
    Arabs will only respect someone who is powerful and knows the score. They are proud when they lie to infidels and the infidels believe the lies.

    Senator O visited Kenya and the Government said thanks for coming and come again but you should not have done….
    Either he is blindly idealistic or deluded or just plain ignorant that there are different cultures that don’t want our values. This is a very dangerous game.

    He acted childish at the Republican resistance to the Stimulus Bill. What happened to Mr Cool? What would he have done if Congress did not pass it? Do you think he would have tried an executive order? His lack of experience is so dangerous. Maybe people will see what a fool he is before it is too late.

    His attitude towards the military is disrespectful. His military experience is zero and he tells the generals what to do. Maybe he thinks that we can disarm and everyone will love us.

    Remember Neville Chamberlain? His sellout to the Nazis is what got WWII started. He gave the Nazis Czechoslovakia to buy Peace. Peace Peace Peace is an open invitation to powers that want revenge. The Germans wanted revenge for the Treaty of Versailles. Many Arab and other brother Muslim countries want revenge for the formation of Israel and Colonialism and the invasion of Iraq. Will he abandon Israel? Did he ever study history?

    Now we have Iran with an ICBM and soon to have the Bomb. Surely they have as much of a right to have it as we do! They see it as insurance that the US will not invade Iran and that they are at least as powerful as the US. They will not be afraid to use the Bomb. Will the next war be nuclear!? It would be the ultimate suicide bombing!

    Iran was Jimmy Carter’s Waterloo. Obama is Jimmy Carter on steroids.

    He is a sick, communist I swear to God… I have no idea what to think anymore.. I am 50 yrs old, and in my lifetime I have never seen anything like this before.. I do not want to get back to the same argument over and over again but.. I know lots of Democrats and Ind. that voted for McCain how in the world did this man get in there? I am stumped to this day. Even the most reasonable thinking person would be able to see a problem here.. Each day I wake up I wonder what the hell he will do that day? I will spend the next 3 yrs fighting to get the word out.

    I’ve read all previous comments and unless I missed something no one mentioned the 2010 elections. If it should come to an impeachable offense, you better be sure it CAN happen. Start working NOW to throw out the Dhimmi-c-rats in 21 months. In the meantime, pray, hard. God Save the USA.

    Here is video of a mother of one of the sailors killed in the terrorist attack on the USS Cole in 2000 speaking out today against President Obama for his decision to drop the charges against the mastermind of the attack. She refused to meet with Obama today at the White House, and says he is letting down America’s guard against Terrorists. Very powerful statements.

    I saw that, and it will be packaged with an excellent piece by Rick Saunders. If everything is done on time (my end, not Rick’s), the piece should run this afternoon.

    As for now, shoot, it’s late enough. I gotta get some sleep.
