Patrick Leahy Leads Charge to Free Gitmo Terrorists

Democrat Senators are conducting their War on Behalf of Terror on two fronts, not only demanding that we surrender to terrorists in the conflict's main theater Iraq, but also providing legal assistance to those in American custody.

Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, whines that the "rights" of foreign terrorists captured overseas are being infringed despite the obsequious treatment they receive at Club Gitmo. He wants foreign terrorists to be able to challenge our government in our courts, as if they were common criminals and American citizens. The result would be extravagantly expensive bureaucratic paralysis, quickly leading to terrorists sworn to our destruction being set free to kill again.

Leahy complains that the terrorists could be held forever. In saner times, this problem would have been solved with a machine gun. But Dems prefer that al-Qaeda operatives be released so that they can continue their activities on American soil, after the battlefield has been moved by Harry Reid et al. from Iraq back to Manhattan.

Wants terrorists freed so they can get back to trying to kill you.

On a tip from V the K.

The Liberal Elite are people who have spent their lives achieving their goals by kissing-up, tattle-taling, siding with (or running from) bullies, stepping over others, inheritances, gigelo-ing, winning lawsuits, etc.. It's all they know; consequently they think it will work in dealing with our enemies- especially in brown-nosing and helping the "bullies". They think that, even if the "bullies" invade us- which is their stated desire- they will give the Liberals a pass for being so relevant, and for being such good helpers.

They are wrong about most everything, and they are certainly wrong about this...

I’m with Leahy, however, while they are waiting for their court appearances, which could take several years as the ACLU lawyers keep throwing monkey wrenches into our judicial system, they be housed in an appropriate facility in Leahy’s neighborhood.

Now THAT would be fun to watch...:D :D

Sen. Leahy: Construct affordable housing right next door to your home, house all of the Club Gitmo "detainees" therein, absolutely free of charge (i.e., at your personal expense), provide each detainee a lawyer, also at your out-of-pocket expense, allow them free ingress and egress at their whim, maybe even find them employment at minimum wage, and I'll set aside all of my opposition to your plan to set these terrorists free upon the American people.

Doubtless the good folks of Vermont will be all in favor of this wonderful idea!

Jesus, we're screwed.

These appeasement fetishists called Democrats have abandoned all pretexts of nationalism in favor of outright aiding and comforting the enemy. They will side with any evil against the U.S., as long as it damages GWB which gives them an opportunity to seize more political power.

OT: Gun confiscation under way in Chicago.

But "common sense" gun registration and licensing never leads to this sort of thing, right libs?

I agree...let the terrorists take up residence in Vermont, where true blue Yankees were thoroughly routed by the Woodstock crowd years ago. Perhaps a Ben and Jerry's flavor could be named for them. How about Prophet's Delight? Chocolate ice cream with fig and almond clusters that explode in your mouth if you are an infidel.

Thanks, V the K, that's just the story I needed to see.

In most places here in Texas firearms are still exchanged by citizens via the classifieds - even in 'ultra-liberal' (by Texas standards) Austin.

Many towns across the country have newspapers that won't run firearms ads - even though perfectly legal - for 'political correctness' reasons (i.e. the editor and/or owner is a screaming freaking gun-grabbing liberal socialist bastard).

Legal private exchange of firearms is the only way to beat these bastards. Support your local 2nd Amendment advocacy groups. Freedom begins at home and in your community, and spreads outward.

Yeah, I am seriously thinking about sitting out the 2008 election and just writing the biggest check I can possibly afford to the NRA.

I'll vote for that flavor Pam. How about some locusts 'n honey cluster crunch too? Only a prophet could handle that one. Or maybe some "fire 'n brimstone hot as hell" concoction? ;-)

Myself...I switched to Haagen-Dazs since B & J's has fillers
and started tasting somewhat artificial several years back.

Can you imagine how much damage the Democrats will do to our National Security if they take control of the White House and the Congress?

Why aren't we calling them what they really are?
Clearly, "they" are the party
of Lenin, Stalin, Putin, Reid and Pelosi.

I petition that the former Democrat party now be required to
register themselves as the Neo-Communist Party. All voters
formerly registered as "democrats" must re-register as Neo-Communists. Regardless, that's what I call them and I've not
had any disagree with this designation (to my face) as yet.

SOUTHERN Democrats are a diffrent breed, but we will be happy to call ourselves "Dixiecrats" or something.
