Of course those who care more about politics than our nation will just castigate this as partisanship, but a big problem was revealed yesterday in Washington, D.C. We all know that if a GOP President did 10% of the stuff President Obama has done, they would’ve been drawn and quartered. Even today we still hear Bush lied about WMD in Iraq; while you hardly hear about Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Madeleine Albright and a host of others who concurred.
As reported by Fox News:
House Republicans are claiming in a new report that the Obama administration misled Congress about the effort to release five Taliban detainees at Guantanamo Bay for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the militant group for nearly five years.
Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee released a 98-page report Wednesday on its inquiry into the case of the so-called Taliban Five after lawmakers expressed outrage that the Obama administration did not give Congress a 30-day notice about transferring the detainees to Qatar, as required by law. The report also provided behind-the-scenes details about the Defense Department’s work with the Qataris, who played the middleman in negotiating the swap with the Taliban.
The five Taliban leaders, held at the military prison in Cuba, were informed that they were being released two days before the administration told Congress, the report said. They were put on a plane bound for Doha, Qatar on May 31, 2014, less than three hours after Bergdahl was released into U.S. custody.
The report from House Republicans reiterated lawmakers’ complaint and a General Accounting Office finding that the transfer violated the National Defense Authorization Act and other laws. It said the Pentagon’s own Office of Detainee Policy was kept out of the loop about the prospective exchange.“In the months preceding the Taliban Five transfer, the administration did not communicate any of the specifics or contemplated courses of action to the committee, and the information it did convey was misleading and obfuscatory,” the report said.”
The concern here has to not just be that the Obama administration once again violated standing law — meaning Obama violated something he had signed into law. The real issue is that it was more important to coordinate with the Qataris than it was to follow the law of the United States. This once again evidences a rigid intransigent ideologue, Barack Obama, who didn’t just mislead Congress, he misled the American people.I have no idea what it takes, but one thing is for certain. Anyone on the liberal progressive left who wants to try and paint every Republican as being in alignment with Donald Trump, well, let’s call this as it is. All of you are also complicit in the lawlessness of Barack Obama if you do not condemn his actions. Obama has generated more lies and deceitful actions that any previous president in our modern history. Heck, President Nixon resigned over a “breaking and entering” incident.
I demand that every Democrat firmly condemn this action by Obama. If not, then it’s clear, you are accepting of this unconstitutional and lawless behavior. Not to mention the lying and abandonment of Americans in Benghazi, Libya. Obama released five of the most dangerous detainees in GITMO, by the admission of the Obama administration, and did so against the law. And what did we get, a doggone traitor who is still walking around and not imprisoned.
And please, spare me the retort of Bush released GITMO detainees; he did so within the standing law as well. And I’m not happy that any unlawful enemy combatant was released. And I find it rather comical that the progressive left invokes the name of Bush when they want to find commonality in their nefarious actions — otherwise, they blame him incessantly.
And here we are finding out yesterday that a cheeky fella, who claimed to be the al-Qaida version of Wolfgang Puck, now back leading al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (Yemen). Can you even believe White House spokesperson Josh “Not So” Earnest said they could not confirm that, even though there was video showing him?
Fox News reported:
A hardened Al Qaeda fighter who served as Usama bin Laden’s jack-of-all-trades before spending a decade at Guantanamo Bay made a military prosecutor’s prophecy come true when he resurfaced on the field of battle in Yemen, where he is one of the terror group’s top leaders.
Ibrahim al-Qosi, a Sudanese native who once served as Usama bin Laden’s cook, chauffeur and bookkeeper, appears in the latest video released this week by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), some three years after he was released from the U.S. military facility. The 55-year-old Al-Qosi is one of the Al Qaeda chapter’s top men, according to the Foundation For Defense of Democracies’ Long War Journal blog.
“One of the main reasons the United States was willing to return him to Sudan was the U.S. confidence in the government of Sudan’s program and its confidence that Mr. al-Qosi would not represent any kind of threat to the United States,” his attorney, Paul Reichler, said in July, 2012, when Al-Qosi was freed. “If they had considered him a threat, they would not have released him.”
You know what the problem is? He had a lawyer. This, folks, is not some law enforcement endeavor, the global conflagration against Islamic terrorism. These unlawful enemy combatants need to be killed on the battlefield — or extradited from the battlefield and held for as long as the declared jihad of these barbarians continues. They’re not American citizens and not privileged to any “due process” or equal protection under the law — they are non-state, non-uniformed belligerents.
So we must ask, how long before we see the Taliban five senior leaders, released by Obama, doing a video from Afghanistan? An Afghanistan where we shared with you yesterday that the Taliban did not get Obama’s memo about the end of combat operations.
But folks, that is not all of the story of yesterday; it was a trifecta.
You know that JV Team called ISIS or Daesh? Well, if you did not believe they were operating in the United States, just move to Minneapolis.
Fox News again reports:
Another Minnesota man has been charged with conspiring to help the Islamic State.
Abdirizak Mohamed Warsame, 20, of Eagan was charged Wednesday by criminal complaint with conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.
Court documents allege Warsame tried to help other young men from Minnesota’s Somali community travel to Syria to fight for the Islamic State. Nine others in that group have already been charged, authorities say.
The documents allege Warsame and others settled on a plan of going to Syria by way of Mexico.
According to an FBI special agent’s affidavit, one man who was planning to leave for Syria appointed Warsame to replace him as “emir,” or leader, of the group.
“As the new emir, Warsame immediately encouraged those with passports and money to travel to Syria by the end of the upcoming summer,” the affidavit said.
Anyone remember those poor Somali refugees that we just had to take and bring into America? Hmm, I think y’all have figured out what I’m insinuating. Minnesota has become a hotbed for ISIS recruitment and activity — hey, isn’t that area represented in Congress by Keith Ellison? Coincidence?
Folks, we have a problem and the liberal progressive socialists such as Obama and Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted to keep us safe. Perhaps that’s why so many Americans purchased guns on cyber Monday — which begs the question, why does Obama, Clinton and the left want to disarm Americans? It just appears there is an unholy alliance between progressive socialists and Islamo-fascists and jihadists.
Hillary Clinton wants us to empathize with this enemy. Obama wants to release the enemy.
I want to crush the enemy — time for choosing folks.
