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 is just PRICELESS, folks! This morning on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,’ the crew again had another fight about what is torture and what is not, and whether or not Bush is responsible for Gitmo’s existence (Joe & Pat rightfully remind the crew that it was OBL who is responsible for that maelstrom). DING, DING, DING!!!! The fight is on!!! Pat Buchanan and Joe Scarborough in the corner of “reason,” Vs. Mika Brzezinski and Jonathan Capehart in the corner of “feelings.”
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I’m refraining from debate because we’re not going to have time for the next op-ed. Washington Post. Marc Thiessen. “2,688 days. As the new president receives his intelligence briefings, certain facts must now be apparent. Al Qaeda is actively working to attack our country again. And the policies and institutions that George W. Bush put in place to stop this are succeeding. During the campaign, Obama pledged to dismantle many of these policies. He follows through on those pledges at America’s peril and had his own. If Obama weakens any of the defenses Bush put in place and terrorists strike our country again, America will hold Obama responsible and the Democratic Party could find itself unelectable for a generation.”
