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.
Today on Meet the Press, Gingrich and Durbin debated about the Gitmo conundrum and what to do about the terrorist detainees. Here’s a portion of the transcript:
FMR. REP. NEWT GINGRCH, (R-GA): Well, let, let me start with, first of all, it was Secretary of State Colin Powell who also talked about weapons of mass destruction, so this is not a Cheney problem. The fact is every member of the American government senior leadership believed in the intelligence they were getting at the time. And the question comes right down to, as Vice President Cheney said this week, what’s your highest priority? Is it to defend America and protect American lives, or is it to find some way to defend terrorists and to get terrorists involved in the criminal justice system? I can’t imagine–given the fact, for example, that we just picked up four terrorists in New York who had been converted in prison, I can’t imagine–the director of the FBI has said don’t put these terrorists in prisons because there’ll be an active threat to convert other people. The fact is these, these terrorists–we’re now down to the worst of the worst. These are the–the Bush administration released over 500 people. One out of every seven actually went back to war against us and is out actively trying to kill Americans today. So I would be very cautious. I think the president made a very big mistake. It was a campaign promise, it is not a national security plan. I think, frankly, they should keep Guantanamo open. Whatever the, whatever things that are wrong at Guantanamo they would fix by moving them to somewhere else, fix them at Guantanamo.
THE FOLLOWING VIDEO CONTAINS DISTURBING AND
GRAPHIC SCENES OF TORTURE AT GUANTANAMO BAY!
Witness first-hand the horrible treatment the Gitmo detainees face every single day. This is just unbelievable! Where is Human Rights Watch when you need them? This is horrible and must be stopped! Oh, the HUMANITY!
Again, you’ve been warned. Click “play” at your own risk.
Wow, Dennis covered a lot of ground tonight for his Miller Time segment on Bill O’Reilly. But today was a good newsday for a Miller reflection. I love his references to Sheikh “Al-Kaboom.” LOL… How apropos.
Have fun kids! Wait 30 minutes after eating lunch before you go waterboarding!
Why, after all, it’s a fancy tourist destination! So, it wouldn’t be appropriate for the terrorist detainees to be housed there at Alcatraz. Really? You don’t say!
So tell us, Ms. Pelosi, where do you propose we put these jihadis? If you don’t speak up, we’ll just summarily find a spot and you’ll just have to deal with it. That is, if the Chosen One loses all ability to grasp the gravity of the situation, understands common sense, yet follows through with his promise to close Club Gitmo anyway, the choices will be few.
I don’t want them in MY backyard, and apparently neither does the aging, hollow-eyed hippy from Haight-Asbury, Nancy Pelosi. What a hypocrite.
