Barack Obama lectured about Guantanamo Bay this morning as if it were Auschwitz.
He pulled every dishonest gimmick in the community organizer’s playbook to characterize Gitmo as some sort of original sin against the Constitution and American values.
As if Obama cared about the Constitution. As if he would recognize an American value if it hit him in the face.
It was classic Obama, which is to say left-wing nutjobbery.
Half of what Obama said was lies, and the other half was not true.
What Obama did not say was that he plans to give the Guantanamo Bay IslamoNazis the civil rights of American citizens. That is what will have to happen if they are transferred to prisons in America.
The IslamoNazis will be Mirandized. They will no longer be questioned at the discretion of the American military. And they will get the finest lawyers the ACLU can buy — Eric Holder — to defend their (ahem) rights on American soil.
And they will tie up the courts for as long as their lawyers can… which could be a very long time.
Eventually, they might be released for lack of evidence because the military will (correctly) not allow vital evidence to be made public via the courts.
To summarize: Obama wants to give a bunch of America-hating and Jew-hating war criminals the rights and privileges of American citizens… which is part and parcel of the left wing’s war on American citizenship.
And now Obama is going to visit Cuba for “fun.”
I don’t know, but blood-soaked gulags don’t seem like fun places to me. Nor is giving the benefit of due process to foreign IslamoNazi war criminals an American value.
