The left has long argued for the right of those captured fighting against us. They wanted these people treated like criminal suspects instead as prisoners of war. (They’re not prisoners of war, they are correctly named enemy combatants. They should have been put up against a wall and shot right there and then. Fattening them up with halal burgers certainly didn’t earn us any respect from the Muzz/ed) Â Campaigning, protesting and various actions until the courts agreed. Well now the rulings have filtered down to the courts andÂ we are about to see the release of Islamic terrorists into the US proper.
“The order directing their release, by Judge Ricardo Urbina, marks the first time a judge has ordered detainees atÂ GuantanamoÂ freed. He directed the government to fly them to Andrews Air Force Base by Friday, and heÂ imposed no conditions on their release. They could be at Target inÂ Arlington,Â Va., by mid-afternoon, shopping for some new clothes for their new lives in theÂ Washington,Â D.C.Â area.
You might think that’s astounding, but it’s the logical and very tangible consequence of all those Supreme Court rulingsâ€”most recently the one in June thatÂ gave terror suspects being held at Guantanamo the right to challenge their detention in federal courts. In other words, the Supreme Court decreed that judges are going to have a role in the War on Terror, and they can now second-guess military and political decisions about who is a terror suspect and who can be freed.”
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â This should be a huge issue against the left and Obama. Since he is so against the war, McCain should constantly ask Obama just what he believes should happen to these prisoners. It is another discussion of what needs to happen to these people if they are to be released.
