A Job Well Done

Click cartoon for larger size
When the UK released the Lockerbie Bomber (killer of 270 innocent people, including 179 Americans) to a hero's welcome, president Obama decided to make a strong statement about terrorism. Unfortunately, his statement was that CIA agents may be put on trial for trying to gather life-saving information, and that the Whitehouse will now supervise all interrogations of terror suspects to make sure they don't get cold, hungry, scared...or cooperative.

So basically, it's been a terrific week for terrorism. Oops, we mean "overseas contingencies!"

Important Update: Please read what Dick Cheney says about the decision to prosecute CIA officials, despite newly released proof that the "enhanced interrogation methods" saved American lives and severely damaged Al Qaeda.

I wonder if his buddies Farrakhan and Wright will join him ? It could be a beautiful “family” reunion !

Well, it seems that it is not enough for Barry. Now, he may meet Gaddafi :

When Gaddafi (the financier of much terrorism, including the Lockerbie bombing) comes to visit the United States, he hopes to erect a huge, air-conditioned Bedouin tent...in a Jewish neighborhood.

The President "will not rule out" a meeting with Gaddafi. Apparently Obama doesn't realize that our dialogue with terrorists should be intense, not "in tents."

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort...." -U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3

But hey, who still uses that old Constitution-thingy, anyhow?

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

Don't forget, Jeffersonian, that the Constitution is a "living document." And currently, that "living document" is being waterboarded in the Whitehouse basement, and screaming for help.

You've got it right, Stilt. And Barry knows it :
