The differed between a dangerous and stupid cowboy-esque president, like, say GWB, and any much more enlightened man-of-the-world Nobel Peace prize holders, like, say Obama, and it was not that hard. All it took was the recent Bergdahl incident and things like this. And you know what it is? The leftist love the process and pretense of following the law. Yes, I said “pretense of following the law”, and I meant it.
This whole ordeal smacks of Holder’s promise that if the rubes in congress where but to allow the Gitmo inmates to be tried in civilian court, they all would end up with guilty verdicts and life in prison. You only make such promises if you have a kangaroo court proceeding with a predetermined outcome. Then again, I could be mistaken and unjustly accusing Holder of presiding over a DOJ that enforces the law willy-nilly, considering the guy is such an expert liar that everything he says should be taken as possibly some sort of word play on the truth. Who knows. When you deal with people that believe their moral conviction puts them and those like them above the law, anything goes.
I expect this WH to tout this as a great success – they need a new diversion from the previous chain of diversions they tried subsequently to use as people found out how bad they were behaving and each went sour – but I also expect it to blow up in their face. These idiots are desperate to keep their criminal activities under wrap, which is why we keep getting story after story to move people along from one scandalous revelation to another. I guess the plan is to cause scandal fatigue or something.
Anyway, you ask how in the world I think this can go wrong? After all, they are going to have a pretend court hearing and the guy is being held by Obama, which means that he will not be tortured or held indefinitely like evil Boosh di. In fact, I see a future trade for another deserter cum enemy sympathizer in his future. That is, if this dude can be kept from spilling the beans about what really went on at Benghazi. Maybe we should give Holder what he once wanted, and have this guy transferred from military jurisdiction to civilian court. At least it would be somewhat easier for us to get the facts from the alternative media (the LSM would not dream of giving us the truth of what happened if it hurts demcorats as we all suspect it will turn out to be the case).
Abu Khattala, who was captured Sunday on the outskirts of Benghazi by U.S. special operations forces, was headed to the United States to face what President Obama called “the full weight of the American justice system.”
The Benghazi attacks, and the Obama administration’s conduct in the aftermath, have long been a source of festering political discord. And some Republicans on Capitol Hill were quick to voice skepticism about the administration’s plans to try Abu Khattala like a civilian.
What are the chances this guy just happens to choke on his hallal falafel and never gets to tell us what happened, huh? After all, they don’t want to send these guys to Gitmo anymore. I bet there is a prisoner swap in the work soon. Maybe for Jane Fonda. We should get her back from Hanoi.
