When Sarah Palin spoke at the Republican National Convention back in 2008, she warned us that a coming Obama administration would be more concerned with reading terrorists their rights than protecting the homeland.
She was labeled a nut. Was she? Consider where we are now:
The first Guantanamo detainee to face a civilian trial was acquitted Wednesday of most charges he helped unleash death and destruction on two U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998 ? an opening salvo in al-Qaida's campaign to kill Americans, according to the Associated Press. The stunning verdict is a huge blow to the Obama administration's push for putting terrorists on trial in civilian courts.
As it turns out, Palin was exactly right. The obsession this administration has with political correctness is crippling our ability to prosecute the war...and endangering Americans in the process.
Remember Obama guaranteeing that those terrorists who would be tried in civilian courts would be found guilty? Out of 285 counts of conspiracy and terrorism-related charges, this terrorist was found guilty on one of them. One 1 out of 285.that's the success rate of Obama's mad scheme of prosecuting "combatants."
The report went on:
The trial at a lower Manhattan courthouse had been viewed as a possible test case for President Barack Obama administration's aim of putting other terror detainees ? including self-professed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four other terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba ? on trial on U.S. soil.
Ghailani's prosecution also demonstrated some of the constitutional challenges the government would face if that happens. On the eve of his trial last month, the judge barred the government from calling a key witness because the witness had been identified while Ghailani was being held at a secret CIA camp where harsh interrogation techniques were used.
I've been saying it for over a year now: you and your family are not safe under the leadership of this administration. The evidence to prove as much continues mounting.
