Alaska’s former governor on President Obama’s naive and dangerous decisions regarding the Pantybomber and the jihad in general:
It simply makes no sense to treat an al Qaeda-trained operative willing to die in the course of massacring hundreds of people as a common criminal. Reports indicate that Abdulmutallab stated there were many more like him in Yemen but that he stopped talking once he was read his Miranda rights. President Obama’s advisers lamely claim Abdulmutallab might be willing to agree to a plea bargain – pretty doubtful you can cut a deal with a suicide bomber. John Brennan, the President’s top counterterrorism adviser, bizarrely claimed “there are no downsides or upsides” to treating terrorists as enemy combatants. That is absurd. There is a very serious downside to treating them as criminals: terrorists invoke their “right” to remain silent and stop talking. Terrorists don’t tell us where they were trained, what they were trained in, who they were trained by, and who they were trained with. Giving foreign-born, foreign-trained terrorists the right to remain silent does nothing to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats. It only gives our enemies access to courtrooms where they can publicly grandstand, and to defense attorneys who can manipulate the legal process to gain access to classified information.
Boom! Taste her nightstick!
You can read the rest at her Facebook page. Funny, but I recall people attacking her during the campaign by saying she had no experience or knowledge of foreign affairs, that she wasn’t ready to take over should anything have happened to a hypothetical President McCain.
Bunk. Compare this note to the ditherings and blatherings and nuanced nonsense coming from Obama and his advisers, and you’ll note the difference between someone who gets it and someone who just wants to finish his waffle.
Remember that in 2012.
