President Obama admits some Islamic terror suspects pose too great a threat to be released

President Barack Obama said one of the “biggest problems” in shutting down the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may be how to deal with Islamic terror suspects who pose too great a threat to be released.

“It’s a messy situation. It’s not easy,” Obama told C- SPAN in an interview. “We’ve got a lot of people there who we should have tried early, but we didn’t. In some cases, evidence against them has been compromised. They may be dangerous, in which case we can’t release them, so finding how to deal with that I think is going to be one of our biggest problems.”

Obama, who called the Bush administration’s policy of indefinitely holding prisoners in Guantanamo a “mistake,” said he’s spoken to former President George W. Bush since taking office in January. He didn’t elaborate on the conversations, saying, “I think the general policy of keeping confidence with the predecessors is important.”

The Democratic president defended his decision to close the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay by early next year in a speech two days ago in Washington. He said some choices made by Bush and his advisers in pursuing the war on terrorism were “ad hoc” and “hasty” and left behind a “mess.” He repeated the criticism in the C-SPAN interview, which will air in full today at 10 a.m., Washington time.

Corners Cut

“There was a period of time after 9/11, understandably because people were fearful, where I think we cut too many corners and made some decisions that were contrary to who we are as a people,” Obama told the cable-television network.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney defended the Bush’s administration’s actions in a May 21 speech in Washington.

Cheney said the Bush administration employed tactics after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that saved lives, including using harsh interrogation techniques. He said he would support those decisions again “without hesitation.”

Obama has banned the interrogation techniques in question, including simulated drowning, or water boarding. He contends the measures betray the country’s “ideals” and aren’t necessary to “wage an aggressive battle against organizations like al-Qaeda that want to do us harm.”

“I’m confident that we are stronger when we uphold our principles, that we are weaker when we start pushing them aside,” he told C-SPAN.

Why does President Obama want to release 9/11 terrorists amidst us

President Barack Obama on Thursday will outline his strategy for closing the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, hoping to defuse a revolt by lawmakers over the fate of an internationally reviled symbol of Bush-era detainee policy.

In a much-anticipated speech, Obama will defend his still-emerging plan to shutter the detention camp at a U.S. naval base in Cuba as he tries to ease concerns that some terrorism suspects held there could be set free in the United States.

Obama will renew the pledge he made in his first days in office to close Guantanamo by January 2010 but will apparently stop short of providing details demanded by friends and foes alike on what will be done with the facility’s remaining 240 prisoners.

At the same time Obama is speaking, former Vice President Dick Cheney, an architect of Bush’s detainee policy and a harsh critic of Obama’s efforts to dismantle it, will be at a Washington think tank giving a speech partly titled “Keeping America Safe.”

Four months into his presidency, Obama suffered a stinging setback on Wednesday when the Senate, controlled by fellow Democrats, blocked the $80 million he had sought for the shutdown until he decides what to do with the facility’s inmates.

 

 Democratic lawmakers, worried that some of the prisoners could be jailed or even released in the United States, rebelled against Obama after opposition Republicans threatened to brand them as soft on terrorism. Please do answer us why Mr. President you want to release such dangerous Islamic terrorists, who have no love for United States, no love for democracy or our way of life, among us.  You are doing a wonderful job economy wise but when it comes to this decision, as much as you are loved, you are fast becoming very unpopular. After the humiliating our premier spy agency CIA about the water boarding stuff, you had to make a quick back track, why didn’t some one of your intelligence see this coming. Why don’t your have some anti-terror law provisions where these hardcore Islamic terrorists will never see daylight among the common citizens of United States. 

We elected you to make us safe not unsafe, you seem to have a hangover of anti-Bush era; our advice from here is make decisions which are mature.

Come Meet Brigitte Gabriel:Expert on Islamic Terrorism

Brigitte will discuss the latest threats radical Islam poses to our safety and security, including…
Iran’s relentless march to a nuclear bomb, and why this threatens more than Israel.
Why Pakistan is today’s headquarters of Islamic terroism.
The increasingly militant – and successful – effort by Islamists worldwide to criminalize any criticism of Islam.

How the various actions and overtures taken by the Obama administration are putting us at greater risk – and why.

How Islamic shariah law is creeping into America.

The threats posed to us by terrorist cells and Islamist compounds right here in America.
But even more important than this, Brigitte will spell out the strategies and tactics ACT! for America is employing to effectively fight back against these threats.

Brigitte’s message will be illuminating, at times disturbing and even shocking — but ultimately inspiring, empowering, and filled with hope!

You will hear first-hand how we can successfully roll back the tide of Islamofascism…how we don’t have to live in fear or resign ourselves to the inevitability of the threats arrayed against us…and how we will prevail.

President Obama won’t meet Israeli PM Netanyahu

Has Obama started to revel his true colors or is he politically so naive for his series of anti-American policy blunders?? First he is praised Muslims in United states for changing the America for better, I ask which Muslim did what to change the face of America?? May be he is mentioning the 9/11 and the constant threat of a nuke attack our country is facing from the Muslim terrorist everyday. Then his bend over act before Saudi dictator, which makes everyone wonder how will he as the head of state dictate any US interests assertively when it comes to our relation with the Saudis and their Islamic extremist indoctrination of their own future generation and their spreading of evil Islamic teachings to the US by Islamic schools (Madrssas) in the US. Then came the reveling secret memos of our primary protector of the CIA, all this along with the latest that he will not meet with the leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, of a democratically elected and one of our best friends Israel

 

 

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday canceled his plans to attend the upcoming AIPAC summit, after it became clear that US President Barack Obama would not meet him during the conference.

Netanyahu announced that while he will not attend the conference in person, he will send a video-taped message to Washington.

Army Radio reported that the prime minister asked President Shimon Peres to represent Israel at the summit, scheduled to take place in Washington in the beginning of May.

According to the radio station, sources in the president’s bureau confirmed that Peres had received a request from Netanyahu and AIPAC officials to attend the summit, but noted that the president had not yet decided whether to accept the invitation. “

NOTE:

 

 

I may be criticizing Mr. Obama, my intention is to point to his mistakes rather than stand opposed to him as a person, I’m not saying Obama is perfect, don’t we all make mistakes what I’m saying is Obama is the best bet we have when compared to Rush Limbaugh or Sarah Palin or any republicans who do not represent the middle class or people other than the white race or people other than the christian religion, nor do they agree to freedom of peoples choices.

 

 

 

 

Unite to fight Islamic terrorism stalking Manhattan to Mumbai: Obama

US President Barack Obama Saturday asked nations around the world to come together to solve global problems like a recession, climate change, nuclear proliferation and Islamic terrorism that has claimed innocent lives “from Manhattan to Mumbai”.

It is important to acknowledge no single nation can solve global problems, but working with other nations, the US can lead the way in overcoming these challenges, Obama said in his weekly address after a weeklong trip overseas.
Describing it as a “time when we face tests and trials unlike any we have seen in our time,” the president spoke of “an economic crisis that recognizes no borders. Violent Islamic extremism that’s claimed the lives of innocent men, women, and children from Manhattan to Mumbai”.

“An unsustainable dependence on Arab oil and other sources of energy that pollute our air and water and threaten our planet. The proliferation of the world’s most dangerous weapons, the persistence of deadly disease, and the recurrence of age-old conflicts,” he said listing the challenges.

“These are challenges that no single nation, no matter how powerful, can confront alone. The United States must lead the way. But our best chance to solve these unprecedented problems comes from acting in concert with other nations,” he said.

That is why he had met with leaders of the G20 nations to ensure that the world’s largest economies take strong and unified action in the face of the global economic crisis, Obama said.

“It is only by working together that we will finally defeat 21st century security threats like Islamic terrorist group like Al Qaeda,” he said.

“Make no mistake: we live in a dangerous world, and we must be strong and vigilant in the face of these threats,” Obama said.

“But let us not allow whatever differences we have with other nations to stop us from coming together around those solutions that are essential to our survival and success.”

China executes Muslim pair for pre-Olympics attack

China executed two Islamic terrorists people Thursday for an attempt to sabotage the Beijing Olympics with an attack in the far-west region of Xinjiang that killed 17 police.

The Muslims Abdurahman Azat, 34, and Kurbanjan Hemit, 29, were found guilty of a “terrorist attack on a frontier city’s border police that left 17 dead.” The attack came despite tightened security ahead of the Summer Games last August.

Before the attack, they wrote a letter saying they had to wage Jihad or “holy war,” and their mission was more important than their lives and mothers. The attackers rammed a truck into dozens of police on a morning training run on Aug. 4 in the oasis city of Kashgar, following up their attack with explosives, a home-made gun and knives, state-run media reported at the time.

Execution ‘publicized’ at local stadium
The Kashgar court said the two men had “carried out the terrorist attack on Aug. 4 to sabotage the Beijing Olympic Games,”. Their execution was “publicized” at a meeting of some 4,000 officials and residents in a local stadium.

The Xinjiang regional governor, Nuer Baikeli, told reporters in Beijing last month that violence in Afghanistan and recent Islamic militant attacks in India and Pakistan showed his region had reason to fear Islamic militants.

How US is becoming weaker than China in an increasingly Islamic terrorist tolerant administration?

First of all the Chinese which  owns more than a trillion of US treasury bonds are our masters when it comes to dictating the terms in trade and foreign policy. The recent example was North Korean incident, where the Chinese had blocked any move from the US for harsher penalties for the Korean communist government.

 Will China take over the mettle as the leader in the fight against Islamic terror too?

 

 

Now even in the war on terror, which we are fighting since the great tragedy of 9/11, China seems to be taking an upper hand. While we all love our new president Barack Obama very much and do very much want him to succeed not just for his sake but our sakes too, but some of his recent actions is I feel debatable.

May be closing of Guantanamo bay was done for humane reasons, but we have to understand it’s widely seen as a sign of weakness in the Muslim world. We do need separate jails and laws when dealing with International Islamic terrorists. But when they are put up with other common criminals who may have at least a slim chance to redeem himself and go back in to the civil society, would be badly influenced by these dangerous ideals of these Islamic terrorists.  If, god forbid, there happens to be another great Islamic attack on the US, then this present Obama administration would be at pains to explain to the American public why it happened and Cheney would look like an ignored god’s messenger.  

We have to ask ourselves why the 9/11 attackers including the Pakistani mastermind Khalid Mohammed are still alive almost 8 years after 9/11, at the expense of the tax payer and why they deserve a an upgrade in their title “enemy combatant”. Why are they to deserve life when they took the lives of hundreds of innocent civilians? There lies the difference between China and the US, while China executed those Muslim terrorists publicly, sending a very strong message, don’t mess with us or else….our allowing these dangerous Muslim terrorists to rejoin peaceful societies is a huge mistake on our parts. There is more than a fat chance that they might commit such heinous crimes again and again, till maybe, keep our fingers crossed that, they land up in China and get executed. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plot to Assassinate Obama in Turkey foiled

In a chilling revelation early this morning, a plot to assassinate President Barack Obama was foiled in the Islamic republic of Turkey. The details of the assassin are not yet known, or which Islamic terrorist group he belongs.

obama1

President Obama making his first overseas trip had encouraged Europe to include Turkey in to the European Union as a sigh of good will to the Muslim world. He had expressed a friendlier relation between the US and Turkey than it were in the past. He is said to have ruffled some feathers when he said US was going to recognise the Armenian genocide.
