but i don't have any pull, silly
obama's director of natl intel, secretary of homeland security and natl security adviser do
or, at least, they should
edit: Here's the closest thing I could find
Holder under fire for Padilla brief - Kasie Hunt - POLITICO.comTwo former Bush administration officials said the brief’s acknowledgement that accused terrorists could go free if their cases were heard through the normal judicial process contradicted Holder’s public statements justifying the FBI’s reading Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the alleged underwear bomber, his Miranda rights. They also pointed out that Holder had not called the brief to the attention of the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearings.
“Now that Holder is attorney general, he no longer acknowledges the risks to national security of treating terrorists as criminals,” the two former Bush officials, Bill Burck, a former deputy White House counsel, and Dana Perino, the former White House Press Secretary, wrote. “Holder could never admit that now, of course.”
That makes it sound a little more problematic, though it's still not exactly a smoking gun.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
it's not a smoking gun
it's just one more sign of incompetence, dishonesty and a rather extremist bent concerning terrorism
they're radical extremists and jihadist-symps
but they won the last election, they control the senate bigtime
we're just gonna have to be patient
i hope you don't live in ny or any of our other big metros
the admin is doing a whole lot more damage to itself and the party in power than they're gonna do (hopefully) to innocent americans
everyone sees what's going on
there's something about tv---it's easy to lie on tv once, twice
it's impossible three times
americans watch too much tv, they can see thru, always, in time
it's more about body language than words
it's undeniably clear WHO ERIC HOLDER IS, briefs or no briefs
even massachusetts sees
ask ms coakley
don't worry about it---we got em
politically, they are ours
security wise, that's different, keep your fingers crossed
Calling those criminals "enemy combatants" raises their status to that of a soldier. They are not soldiers. They do not deserve that level of respect. Calling them enemy combatants was Bush-Cheeney wordsmithing to try to put terrorists into military tribunals. It didn't work.
We didn't look at Timothy McVeigh as an enemy combatant. We tried him as a criminal. What he did was just as bad as what these "terrorists" are doing, if not worse.
If you educate yourself with the bigger picture it might help you to feel better about those who defend your country knowing that they will win no medals for their trouble.That makes me very, very nervous. Where do these folks' sympathies lie?
Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!
