What Hath Barack Obama Wrought?
I know I am not the only one who has said we’re playing with idiocy in Barack Obama’s efforts to try terrorists in civilian courts.
A federal judge has tossed out most of the government’s evidence against a terrorism detainee on grounds his confessions were coerced, allegedly by U.S. forces, before he became a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay.
In a ruling this week, U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan also said the government failed to establish that 23 statements the detainee made to interrogators at Guantanamo Bay were untainted by the earlier coerced statements made while he was held under harsh conditions in Afghanistan.
Poof. The judicial system just shut down one avenue of the government’s case. How many more avenues will get shut down?
Now we are sending to New York the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks to go through the same system of justice. And Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, unlike the terrorist detainee in the article reference above, was water-boarded.
How many Americans will die because of Barack Obama’s amateur notions of terror, war, and justice?
