We’ve had some stunning successes recently in the international war on terror. US and Pakistani forces successfully put the snatch on the number two man in the Taliban chain of command, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, considered to be their key military strategist. Much to the chagrin of Eric Holder and company he WAS NOT Mirandized, and in the hands of Pakistani interrogators is singing like a Hartz Mountain Canary. It’s safe to say he’s being interrogated for more than fifty three minutes.
Administration requests that Baradar be transferred to New York for trial have so far gone unanswered. Sound improbable? Well it is. There are real questions in many American minds just which side of this war on terror Barack Hussein Obama is really on. Our Marines and Army are being asked to fight with almost impossible constraints on their ability to respond to an enemy who can kill them at will. This is a direct reflection on the will of the Commander-in-Chief. No military in history, other than ourselves and the Israelis, go to more extremes to avoid citizen casualties and unnecessary collateral damage.
Obama hemmed and hawed for MONTHS giving our troops in-country the force multipliers they required, and then he permits one arm to be tied behind their backs while they fight what is probably the most important battle of the war in Afghanistan to date. Whether it’s troops in the field or terrorist trials at home, Obama’s whole approach to the prosecution of this war is CARTERESQUE at best. At worst it may be something entirely different and more sinister. read more »
