Habeas Corpus for Osama?

When the Supreme Court ruled that terrorists at Guantanamo could appeal their cases before civilian courts, giving them the same rights as American citizens, one might think outrage would be expressed by both Presidential candidates. However, the truth is quite the opposite.

According to Bill Sammon of the Examiner, Barack Obama advisors John Kerry and Richard Clark (former Clinton terror Czar) said earlier this week that the decision allows Bin Laden to enjoy the same rights as American citizens and the move to criminal prosecution of terrorists will help make America safe.

Barry used the prosecution of those responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center attacks as an example of criminal prosecution working, stating,
"They are currently in prison, incapacitated."

The inexperienced one is showing further signs of being clueless. Barry forgets that despite the prosecution of the 'criminals' for the '93 bombing, terrorists still proceeded with their attacks on U.S. interests.

However, when the Bush administration changed course and decided to take the fight to the terrorists, the attacks suddenly ceased. Coincidence? I think not.

It's just one more example why Obama should never be commander-in-chief.

They forgot that republicans want old people to live on the street and kids to be left without lunch in school.

Funny...yet typically ignorant
