LOL, Once Again Obama = George W. Bush
This is just totally hilarious. Ever since taking office Obama, Mr. Hope and Change, has ended up vindicating everything ... and I mean literally EVERYTHING that George W. Bush did in the war on terror. Here is just the latest example:
In an abrupt reversal, US Attorney General Eric Holder has decided that alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will not be tried in a civilian federal court in the US, but instead will face justice before a special military tribunal at Guantánamo Bay.
Let's review a few past threads just to fun:
With this latest development it looks like we have come full circle on this. :)
And while we're on the subject, what's the deal with this executive order?
EXECUTIVE ORDER -- REVIEW AND DISPOSITION OF INDIVIDUALS DETAINED AT THE GUANTÁNAMO BAY NAVAL BASE AND CLOSURE OF DETENTION FACILITIES
Sec. 3. Closure of Detention Facilities at Guantánamo. The detention facilities at Guantánamo for individuals covered by this order shall be closed as soon as practicable, and no later than 1 year from the date of this order. If any individuals covered by this order remain in detention at Guantánamo at the time of closure of those detention facilities, they shall be returned to their home country, released, transferred to a third country, or transferred to another United States detention facility in a manner consistent with law and the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States.
Sec. 7. Military Commissions. The Secretary of Defense shall immediately take steps sufficient to ensure that during the pendency of the Review described in section 4 of this order, no charges are sworn, or referred to a military commission under the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and the Rules for Military Commissions, and that all proceedings of such military commissions to which charges have been referred but in which no judgment has been rendered, and all proceedings pending in the United States Court of Military Commission Review, are halted.
LOL, What a total and utter farce. Is that order even worth the disk space used to store it? It is an embarassment and I am surprised that the Obama-ites haven't scrubbed it from the site already.
Of course we Republican's knew they could never make any of this stick and none of it has. George W. Bush may have been an idiot but Obama and his acolytes have been forced to uphold every one of GWB's "idiotic" positions. So who's the idiot here? The one that came up with the policies, or the one who promised to end them and is still forced to uphold and pursue them even today? You know the answer.
I thought George W. Bush was a criminal for instituting these policies? Doesn't that make Obama a criminal for going back to them time after time after time?
How's that hope and change workin' out for ya folks?
