Barack Obama – The President Without A Clue

    Call it political expediency, keeping a campaign promise, appeasing his left wing constituency, whatever you call it issuing the order to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba is not just risky but a sign of a President that either has no clue or just does not care. The risk that Obama is taking with the closing is not a personal political risk because | Read More »

    McCain the Maverick Phoenix

    It seems McCain is back to his old self, getting mad at some conservative Senators (and no doubt vice versa). This line jumped out at me from this article. Yesterday, McCain applauded Obama’s executive order to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, within a year, but he said that Obama had failed to address key issues, including the fate of the detainees | Read More »

    Welcome to the Joys of Executive Decisionmaking Under President Obama

    Ladies and Gentlemen, President-Elect Obama is not messing around whatsoever when it comes to implementing one of his earliest and most insistent campaign promises: closing down the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. Yessir, he means business, and he is going to show all those people who suggested that his total lack of executive experience would make him a wishy-washy and poor decision-maker that they were | Read More »

    The Audacity of Patience

    The hard left, I must say, has shown remarkable patience in light of the middle ground the Obama Administration-In-Waiting has cautiously taken since election day. Oh, there’s been some grumbling about all the Clintonistas the O-Team is stocking the executive branch with, The One’s realization that perhaps it might be best to let the Bush tax cuts simply expire rather than repeal them during a | Read More »

    President-Elect Obama has recently reiterated his intentions to close the terrorist detention facility at the U.S. installation at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. As former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Detainee Affairs, Charles “Cully” Stimson, has noted – actually closing the facility will prove far more difficult than Obama’s campaign rhetoric would suggest. In moving forward with this objective, President-Elect Obama would be well advised to | Read More »

    All POW’s are held indefinitely

    That especially includes those of the illegal enemy combatant variety held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and in theater in Afghanistan and Iraq. Originally published by Mike “gamecock” DeVine as Charlotte Law and Civil Rights Examiner for Examiner.com and at The Minority Report The holding of captured enemy forces so they cannot return to the battlefield to kill one’s own soldiers is elemental. But, the millennia-old | Read More »

    Does this count as US torture at Gitmo?

    According to this article, we are engaged in “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment” and “a violation of U.S. law and basic human rights principles” — get this — for not letting this one extremely violent prisoner starve himself to death. You can’t make stuff like this up.
