BEYOND THE RIDICULOUS:

Don’t be surprised at what you read here. This type of thing was forewarned by most conservative bloggers as well as others, long before the election but the masses failed to ‘get it”. And one wonders why I have such contempt for liberal government.

Change... Miranda Rights Loophole May Help Gitmo Detainees
Because terrorists are people, too. (according to Obama and his farleftnoid followers)

Omar Khadr faces five war crimes charges that include murder. (you can read about this sweet innocent murderer here)

In July 2002, Omar Khadr threw a grenade that blew up an American soldier in Afghanistan.
Khadr was wounded and captured during this same firefight. After his capture a video was found that shows Khadr toying with detonating cord as other men including Abu Laith al-Libi assemble explosives in the same house that had been destroyed in the firefight. He was also seen planting landmines while smiling and joking with the cameraman. It has been suggested that these were the same landmines later recovered by American forces on a road between Gardez and Khowst- Wiki.

Khadr was injured in the firefight and begged to be killed . . . But US medics saved his life.
Instead, of facing death, Khadr may be set free. He was not read his Miranda rights.

More hope and change . . . Team Obama admits that the Miranda rule may hamper detainee trials. The terrorists were not properly arrested on the battlefield. (What a load of barnyard bovine excrement. Only a bunch of cowardly appeasement , far left fools would come up with something as stupid as this.OOOPS ,I forgot, the Idiot in Chief supposedly taught Constitutional Law. I wonder what Constitution he studied since Miranda does not apply to terrorist nor to enemy combatants,er well, that is unless you believe in the “living constitution”. That’s the one that changes to suit what ever a bunch of idiot leftwingnoids want it to say)

The LA Times reported: (With all it's usual disdain for the US and Worship of "the One".)

Accused in a 2002 grenade blast that wounded two U.S. soldiers near an Afghan market, Mohammed Jawad was sent as a youth to Guantanamo Bay. Now, under orders by President Obama, he could one day be among detainees whose fate is finally decided by a U.S. court.

But in a potential problem, Pentagon officials note that most of the evidence against Jawad comes from his own admissions. And neither he nor any other detainee at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was ever told about their rights against self-incrimination under U.S. law.

The Miranda warning, a fixture of American jurisprudence and staple of television cop shows, may also be one of a series of constructional hurdles standing between Obama's order to close the island prison and court trials on the mainland.

A procession of similar challenges -- secret evidence, information from foreign spy services and coerced statements -- also could spell trouble for prosecutors.

All of these problems illustrate the larger difficulty that lies ahead as the nation moves from the "law of war" orientation used by the Bush administration in dealing with detainees to the civilian legal approach preferred by Obama.

Obama last month announced sweeping changes, ordered humane treatment and invited in the international Red Cross. But the changeover will not be easy or quick, underscoring the complexity of undoing the Bush administration's policies.


Each day we are seeing the real Obama being unveiled along with his true feelings toward this country and our military. And he claims he wasn't paying attention to the preaching of the Rev. Jeremiah, G-d Damn America, Wright? More barnyard bovine excrement.

Ticker,

"Amen" to Fred's comment.

As to the thorny issue of closing Gitmo: let us line up all of those nice detainees along the ocean's edge and then simply "release" them by pointing east and telling them "That way is home -- start swimmin'!"

Of course, we must first be certain to position a firing line of American servicemen behind them so that they take full advantage of the opportunity . . .
