I agree with Laura and Liz both that Eric Holder’s Dept. of Justice should be required to disclose the names of the lawyers who formerly worked for the defense of the detainees, yet now are working in the DOJ and will now be involved in the prosecution of these detainees, should they ever be brought to American soil. This cannot stand.
Or so says Tamara Holder, defense attorney. On the O’Reilly show last night, guest-hosted by Eric Bolling, Tamara was on and embarassed herself thoroughly in front of the entire country; and simultaneously made our enemies hopeful. You see, Tamara said that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab could not POSSIBLY be called an “enemy combatant,” because after all, Obama said so.
Tamara says that ‘Teh One’ officially “dispelled” that term in March of 2009. She proclaimed “there IS no word ‘enemy combatant’ – I don’t know why Hoekstra and Candice Miller and all these people are saying that he’s an enemy combatant. There is no such term in America anymore. Obama dispelled of that.”
She goes on further to say “he is a terrorist, he committed a terrorist act, he was not on the battlefield. He is supposed to be tried and convicted in America.”
Enter retired CIA Senior Operations Officer, Gary Berntsen. He looks stunned at what this neophyte has been spewing about Abdulmutallab and his “rights.” He reminds her quite succinctly that yes, Virginia, the term “enemy combatant” does still exist (whether Obummer admits it or not), as it is part of the Geneva Convention.
This evening during the Special Report panel, fill-in host Chris Wallace got word via his producers that Fox News had confirmed Christmas bomber, Farouk Abdulmutallab has been being tracked by the CIA since this past August! WTF? Janet, this is how “The System Worked?” The system FAILED, or you weren’t listening at all.
Epic FAIL for Obama, too, considering his 2nd speech today on the matter indicates only now after “new” info is discovered does he now believe we were spared a “catastrophic breach” event. Excuse me? New info? How did you not know, Obummer, about Abdulmutallab if your CIA has been tracking him since last August? Again, EPIC FAIL. No worries, Barack…just go right back to your golf game.
Time to fire Janet Incompetano and NOW! As usual, Krauthammer delivers a fierce scorching, as do A.B. Stoddard and Fred Barnes. And after all this, believe it or not, the 7 o’clock hour news reveals that this “new” information will NOT alter the plans to close Gitmo.
Last Friday on Glenn Beck’s show, Vince Flynn was on for the whole hour. Vince Flynn, brilliant fiction author of the wildly successful novels revolving around character Mitch Rapp, who risks his life for his country, all the while fighting against the corrupt politicians in Washington in these political thrillers.
Glenn & Vince talked about the upcoming show trials Eric Holder is bringing to NYC for KSM and the 4 other 9/11 masterminds, fearing it’s actually Eric Holder putting the CIA on trial. Vince has a fabulous idea as to how we can do this in a sensible way, without exposing NYC.
