… These Guys the ObamaCraps released are not Choirboys [#terrorists]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 11th,2014

.. it is far from the case ..

.. these guys are a bunch of bad apples , rotten to the core …

.. [h/t — WashingtonComPost]..
.. [link] to the column ..

.. I defer to someone who is in a position to know , and has the contacts to know : former Dubya Speechwriter and AEI fellow Marc Thiessen …

.. here is a list of the baddies , and why they are so dangerous …
Mullah Norullah Noori is “one of the most significant former Taliban officials detained at JTF-GTMO.” He “led troops against US and Coalition forces” and “was directly subordinate to Taliban Supreme Leader Mullah Omar,” is “associated with members of al-Qaida” and is “wanted by the UN for possible war crimes.” Noori’s “brother is currently a Taliban commander conducting operations against US and Coalition forces,” and Noori “would likely join his brother if released.”

Mullah Mohammad Fazl, the Taliban’s deputy defense minister, is so senior in the Taliban hierarchy that he once threatened the Taliban’s supreme leader, Mullah Omar. Fazl has “operational associations with significant al-Qaida and other extremist personnel,” and “If released, [Fazl] would likely rejoin the Taliban and establish ties with anti-Coalition militias (ACM) participating in hostilities against US and Coalition forces in Afghanistan.”

Abdul Haq Wasiq, who was the Taliban’s deputy minister of intelligence, “utilized his office to support al-Qaida and to assist Taliban personnel [to] elude capture…. arranged for al-Qaida personnel to train Taliban intelligence staff in intelligence methods” and “assigned al-Qaida members to the Taliban Ministry of Intelligence.” He “was central to the Taliban’s efforts to form alliances with other Islamic fundamentalist groups to fight alongside the Taliban against US and Coalition forces.” If released “he is likely to pose a threat to the US, its interests and allies.”

Mullah Khirullah Said Wali Khairkhwa, once the Taliban’s interior minister, was “directly associated to Usama Bin Laden (UBL) and Taliban Supreme Commander Mullah Muhammad Omar” and was “trusted and respected by both.” After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, he “represented the Taliban during meetings with Iranian officials seeking to support hostilities against US and Coalition forces” and “attended a meeting at the direction of UBL, reportedly accompanied by members of HAMAS.” He is “one of the premier opium drug lords in Western Afghanistan” and was likely “associated with a militant training camp in Herat operated by deceased al-Qaida commander (in Iraq) Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.”

Mohammad Nabi Omari is “a senior Taliban official” who was “a member of a joint al-Qaida/Taliban ACM cell in Khowst and was involved in attacks against US and Coalition forces.” He “held weekly meetings” with “three al-Qaida affiliated individuals” to discuss anti-coalition plans, “maintained weapons caches” and “facilitated two al-Qaida operatives smuggling an unknown number of missiles along the highway between Jalalabad and Peshawar,” which intelligence officials believe contributed to the deaths of two Americans.

Amazingly, Obama not only released these brutal terrorists, he actually held a ceremony in the Rose Garden to personally announce it. He actually considers it an achievement.

… Obama does not Have the Guts , Er , Balls …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 18th,2013

.. Simply put , POTUS could close the Guantanamo Bay prison right now , if he really wanted to …

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the University of Southern California (Video of the speech) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

[-] it is a military prison . Guantanamo Bay is a Navy Base , folks . On Cuban soil , no less .

[-] Barack H. Obama is President of the United States , at least the current one .

[-] POTUS is the commander – in – chief of our army and navy , our armed forces .

.. If he really wanted to , he could issue the order , transfer the inmates out to another nation or base , and close Gitmo . Right Now . There are a few problems with that …

.. no other base is really equipped for the inmates ,

.. those bases are in allied nations ,

.. who would want those inmates . Their countries of origin sure as hell would not want them . Most of them are likely from the Arab world , from the Palestinian territories , Saudi Arabia , Kuwait , Yemen , etc .

.. Congress can restrict their transfer domestically . Not overseas . Also , not to another U.S. military base with a prison . If the commander – in – chief says they go , then they go . Congress makes the rules , and pays the bills , but the President commands .

.. Chiefly , POTUS does not have the guts . Which figures . Obama is a wus , a gutless wonder . If he had to stand election again , he would face a primary challenge . Most likely , from Miz Hillary , or some other DemoCrap willing to roll the dice , especially one with $$ .

… POTUS gets heckled , but the Heckler has a point …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 23rd,2013

.. Now , I grant you , I do not like hecklers . I think that they are show – offs , scene – stealers , and should be thrown out of the event in question on the spot . However , in this case , the heckler in question has a very good and accurate point .

.. POTUS is making a speech on foreign policy , and calls for the closure of the detainee prison at Gitmo . You would figure that someone would interrupt the speech . Well , someone did .

[link]

.. the thing is , the heckler has a point . Obama is the Commander – in – Chief . He could order the detainee prison at Guantanamo Bay , Cuba closed today , if he wanted .

… the thing is , he does not have the balls . He would pay an enormous political price here , by closing it , and overseas , by figuring out what to do with the jihadis that would then be freed by his order .

[Update] I goofed … forgot a part [h/t — RealClearPolitics] and the link (here!)

President Obama is heckled about Guantanamo Bay during his speech on terrorism at the National Defense University on Thursday.

OBAMA: There is no justification beyond politics for congress to prevent us from closing a facility that never should have been opened.
HECKLER: Excuse me, President Obama, you are commander-in-chief–
OBAMA: Today–
[crowd applauds]
OBAMA: So, let me finish, ma’am. So, today once again, today– I’m about to address it. You gotta let me address it.
HECKLER: …close Guantanamo Bay…
OBAMA: Why don’t you sit down and I’ll tell you exactly what I’m going to do. Thank you. Ma’am, thank you. You should let me finish my sentence. Today, I once again call on congress to lift the restrictions on detainee transfers from Gitmo.
