Barack Obama Gets Schooled on War on Terrorism, Detain Indefinitely 50 Inmates Currently Held at GITMO
Yes, Barack Obama … there really is a War on Terror.
The education of this naive President continues as Barack Hussein Obama’s decision to indefinitely detain terrorist inmates at GITMO looks an awful lost like the policies of GWB who he railed on in the 2008 Presidential election.
Once again we are presented with an inconsistent and flip-flopping message from Barack Obama. Suddenly Obama realizes that terrorists are evil people who should not be released or prosecuted, but instead permanently detained. What an epiphany from The One.
My what a difference there is between the rhetoric of campaign promises to the LEFT as compared to the reality and seriousness of the office of the President of the United States.
Hmm, The NY Times reports of the Obama Administration that of the prison’s roughly 200 detainees, about 40 will eventually be prosecuted and about 110 will be repatriated or transferred to other countries.
However, the administration has decided that nearly 40 other detainees should be prosecuted for terrorism or related war crimes. And the remaining prisoners, about 110 men, should be repatriated or transferred to other countries for possible release, the official said, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the numbers.
There are just under 200 detainees left at the detention center.
Of course this has not stopped the decision to try KSM and other terrorists in a NY City Court rather than a military tribunal. A decision by AG Holder and Obama that will come back to bite their big time in the upcoming elections.

Here’s my question though—-how many more costly mistakes or years of “On-The-Job-Training” can our Country afford?
Obama’s inexperience cannot be ignored any longer. It’s costing American lives, and billions and billions of dollars.
Gee I guess maybe GW knew what he was doing after all. Go figure!
What’s the problem again? So he changed his mind after he got access to top-secret information, which he didn’t have as a candidate. This is much preferable to him not changing his mind after he got new facts.
