Daily Mourning: Closing Gitmo

“That One” has not even been sworn in yet and already the terrifying mistakes are starting to pile up. The Obama team is chomping at the bit and frothing at the mouth to overturn and remove any number of Bush strategies whose obvious goal has been to keep America safe. It seems that first and foremost at the top of the idiot-elects list of “let’s change everything Bush” is to close down the Guantanamo Bay detention center. The brilliant conclusion reached by the Obama group is to: release a portion of the detainees straight out; to move a second group into the US courts for trial; and the third group to go before a brand new court yet to be created. Just how unbelievably naïve and ignorant can the Obama plan and the Obama team be?

These detainees have been imprisoned at Gitmo for a reason. These aren’t nice people. These aren’t individuals who were caught jay walking across the streets of Baghdad. These are vicious and hate filled individuals who are bent on killing Americans. And Obama-idiot is planning on just releasing a large portion of them back out into the world. Care to make a wager about how many of those “innocents” that the O-Administration releases that make their way back into the war and end up killing some of our brave soldiers. If this happens just once after Gitmo is closed I see this as tantamount to treason on the part of Obama himself.

I am sure I am like so many others who just cannot wait (insert dripping sarcasm) to see our domestic court systems flooded with former Gitmo detainees; each one with an ACLU scumbag lawyer at their side; and each one spending my tax dollars and wasting countless hours in front of domestic judges and jurors. Can’t you just wait to see the detainees standing in front of judges happily giving diatribe after diatribe about how evil America is and how mistreated and tortured and offended each one of them was while they were in Gitmo. I can guarantee that each time one of these detainees has his moment in court the LMSM media will be there en force with cameras rolling and the lib reporters gleefully reporting about how terrible America must be just look at what the detainee is saying. It will be a nightmare. This I can guarantee.

Oh and on the issue of the libs wanting to create a special court to deal with the detainees that they actually believe pose a serious threat. As far as I am concerned that court already exists. It’s called a military tribunal. But oh wait – they have been fighting the use of that court for how long now? But I guess since the big O took over creating special courts is now OK? The hypocrisy of this upcoming administration is already unbelievable.

The reason the military tribunal system was set up is because the civilian courts don't have the security clearance to see the evidence - these people won't be convictable without giving up secret and top secret information.

Personally, I think everyone is entitled to a fair trial and the right of habeas corpus. As for things being too tippy top secret for the public to see, screw that. As a conservative, I believe in the rule of law and open government.

I would hope that a conservative President-elect would do the same thing in this case.

Woah... Gunner, I have to disagree with you on this one. These are really dangerous people. The right to a trial should be reserved for American Citizens. If these guys have been shot on the battlefield (instead of being humanely captured and detained) then nobody would be saying anything. I'm pretty sure there are no real "innocent" people in Guantanimo.
