Closing Gitmo Â (again)
Obama defended the U.S. military’s decision to force-feed hunger strikers, saying “I don’t want these individuals to die.”
He ticked off a list of reasons why the camp should be shut down.
“Guantanamo is not necessary to keep America safe,” Obama said. “It is expensive. It is inefficient. It hurts us, in terms of our international standing. It lessens cooperation with our allies on counter-terrorism efforts. It is a recruitment tool for extremists. It needs to be closed.”
The ACLU, Â sayÂ they “welcome the president’s continued commitment to closing.”

Â “As Americans, we will not and never will be at war with Islam”Â
Speaking at the Pentagon in 2010 on the ninth anniversary of 9/11, Barack Hussein Obama returned to a recurring theme of his presidency: that the attacks on Americans and the war that has been declared against the West have nothing do with Islam. “As Americans, we will not and never will be at war with Islam,” Obama declared, echoing almost verbatim words he used in his June 2009 Cairo address, and then adding: “It was not a religion that attacked us that September day. It was al-Qaeda, a sorry band of men, which perverts religion.”
AP omits “Muslim” from Obama White House Correspondents Dinner joke
Why? Did they think it hadÂ too much of a ring of truth?
Why did some editors at AP or at the publications that picked up the AP story think it necessary to run interference for Obama on this point?
By mocking the idea that he is a Muslim (and a Socialist), Obama is trying to render these things too ridiculous for serious public discussion. Fine. His personal beliefs are of no moment, except insofar as they influence his public stances. And the direction of his public policies is obvious. He has maintained a consistent foreign policy line that has enabled the establishment of several Islamic supremacist, pro-Sharia states in North Africa and the Middle East, and a domestic policy that has enabled the advance of the Islamic supremacist agenda to assert the primacy of Islamic law over American law and practice wherever they conflict. No amount of mockery will obscure that.
In some of its reports on Saturday night’sÂ White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), the Associated Press failed to include one of President Obama’s own gags.
AP strangely left out the word “Muslim” in one of Obama’s self-referential jokes.
Early in hisÂ commentsÂ on April 26, President Obama made reference to his young life with a joke and a visual image projected on the video screen.
The President joked that everyone loves Michelle and mentioned that she has even appeared on magazine covers. The President said he also appeared on one and showed a mock magazine cover on the video screens. The faux cover showed the President golfing on the cover of “Senior Leisure.”
President Obama then said, “These days I look in the mirror and have to admit, I’m not the strapping young Muslim Socialist that I used to be. Time passes, you get a little gray.”
In one version of the night’s story (as seen atÂ Huffington Post,Â TimeÂ Magazine,Breitbart Wires, theÂ Ottawa Citizen, andÂ The ColumbianÂ to name a few), the AP’s Bradley Klapper forgot one part of the President’s joke.
“I’m not the strapping young Socialist that I used to be,” the president remarked, and then recounted his recent 2-for-22 basketball shooting performance at the White House Easter Egg hunt.
In other versions of Klapper’s story, the word “Muslim” does appear.
