Can a Terrorist Be Rehibilitated?

Barack Obama's Interesting Assumption of William Ayers Deserves More Attention.

On unreptenant weatherman terrorist William Ayers of the University of Chicago, Barack Obama said, “Ultimately, I ended up learning about the fact that he had engaged in this reprehensible act 40 years ago, but I was eight years old at the time and I assumed that he had been rehabilitated.

This offers an opportunity for conservatives and for Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin. Sen. Obama has opened this question now, “Can a terrorist be rehabilitated?” In my mind the answer is absolutely not. Could Timothy McVeigh be rehibiliated? Could Osama Bin Laden be rehibilitated? Could the leaders of Hamas be rehibiltated? Terrorism in and of itself is sociopathic in it’s very nature. It uses fear to intimidate people into capitulating to their demands. Ayers does not regretting setting up bombs for a reason: he’s a sociopath.

What does this attitude that terrorists can be “rehibilitated” mean for the war on terror? Will rehibilitation be the goal to punish terrorists who attempt to bomb the United States? Would a President Obama allow former terrorists to go free if he deemed them “rehibilitated.

If I were Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin, I would be out there asking Sen. Obama this essential question. We need to know, this is a man who will potentially be our commander-in-chief.
