Standing between the American people and the U.S. Constitution, Obama ensures that America is less safe today than yesterday
This morning, as I write this, President Barack Obama is delivering a speech on national security policy at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. He is speaking about how his own life was changed by the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Bill of Rights; he is mentioning how he studied the Constitution as a student, taught it as a professor, and swore to protect and defend it as the 44th president of the United States.
The words are nice (though empty), but from the way the entire engagement has been set up in terms of podium and TelePrompTer location, to me it just reinforces the idea that Barack Obama stands between the American people and the United States Constitution.
My God, why cannot this man understand that Due Process rights are reserved for Americans, not terrorist animals who know nothing of the rule of law, who want little more than to sever the heads of infidels like you and me?
He argues that enhanced interrogation techniques did not advance the War on Terror, but rather undermined it. Give me a break. Tell that to the families in California who can wake up and enjoy breakfast together because waterboarding elicited plans for a 9/11-style attack from Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and we were able to stop it. If waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques–oh no, it’s face-slapping!–undermined the War on Terror rather than advanced it, then release all of the memos, Mr. President, that show exactly what was gleaned from those techniques. Release them all. If you’re going to make statements like this, the American people deserve evidence.
On Gitmo, he says that the problem does not exist because of his decision to close the facility, the problem exists because of the decision to open up Guantanamo in the first place. Furthermore, the issue is not that “nobody has ever escaped from federal supermax prisons,” either. The issue is that people who want nothing more than the destruction of America should never have the opportunity to enjoy the same rights as those they want to destroy. Now, we’re in a situation where these animals will be hauled into American courts or Obama-reformed military tribunals, any and all information gleaned from them in any sort of stressful environment will be thrown out as obtained under torture, and they will be released.
Barack Obama and his out-of-touch, idyllic flunkies are operating on the assumption that we can fight radical Islamic jihad as though it is a law enforcement action. That’s the same assumption that former President Bill Clinton took, and that’s the same assumption that led to more than three thousand dead Americans on a cool, clear, crisp Tuesday morning in the fall of 2001.
To borrow a phrase from our president, let me be clear — standing in front of the very document he has micturated upon with each and every day of his fledgling abomination of a presidency, speaking about how we must take a politically correct, law enforcement approach to what his predecessor rightly called the Global War on Terror, President Barack Obama made this country less safe today than it was yesterday.
