Obama’s Deal Moving Gitmo Terrorists to U.S. Passes House Vote

This was to be expected, seeing as how Obama wants to move the Muslim terrorists from Gitmo to American soil so that his fellow travelers can then petition for civil trials in the American court system. 

The best solution, IMHO, is to confine Muslim terrorists on prison ships, far at sea in international waters.  After all, they are self made stateless terrorists without uniforms or national allegiance so why should they be granted legal protections available to normal citizens of established countries? 

Prison ships would avoid the ugly prospect of murderous, fanatical Muslims ever fouling American soil or court systems.  As our defensive war against Islam continues, and it will go on for decades, prison ships will provide a safe repository for the large number of captured terrorists that will accumulate. 

The US has many Navy ships in mothballs which could be utilized for prisons possibly at less cost than land based prisons.  They are already all steel, and a prison break would lead nowhere except the deep six.  The safety of the American people must be the first priority of government.


Obama’s Deal Moving Gitmo Terrorists to U.S. Passes House Vote

Sacramento , CA – The nation’s largest grassroots, pro-troop organization condemned the action by the House of Representatives voting to clear the way for President Barack Obama’s plan to transfer prisoners from Guantanamo Bay to the United States.

“We will not stand by as the Congress and President Obama weaken our defenses against our radical Islamic enemies.  Bringing these terrorists to the United States will only enable them to bring more mischief to our shores,” said Shawn Callahan, Executive Director of Move America Forward.

Move America Forward, which visited Guantanamo Bay last December, has been outspoken and fervent to keep Gitmo open and the terrorists off of U.S. soil.  Despite Americans overwhelming opposition to the closure of Gitmo and the transfer of terrorists to America, the House of Representatives voted to remove a legal impediment to bringing the terrorists to the U.S.
“The worst thing,” Callahan said, “was the complete arrogance of members of Congress in flaunting the will of the people.  It is no wonder the public has such a low opinion of Congress.” 
Callahan cited examples of Members of Congress who voted to make it easier for terrorist transfers to United States prisons:

“I haven’t had one person ask me about Guantanamo,” said Rep. Baron Hill, D-Ind. He added that he does “not in the least” fear it as an issue in next year’s elections.
“It’s a nonissue. Inside the (Washington) Beltway stuff,” said first-term Rep. Dan Maffei, D-N.Y.

“Our military heroes gave their lives to keep the terrorists from coming to America,” Callahan said. “Now the U.S. Congress votes to bring terrorists here? This is scandalous.”

The Democrats attached the prisoner transfer to a $42.8 billion homeland security appropriations bill. The vote on Thursday was 224-193. President Obama made a campaign promise to close Gitmo as a way to appease his European and Muslim allies. He has found that closing Gitmo is much more difficult than simply making a promise because the terrorists held at the prison are hardcore Jihadists determined to kill Americans.
MAF representatives who visited Guantanamo Bayin 2008 are also available for interviews.
