The administration has made little secret of its near-total reliance on drone operations to fight the war on terror. The ironies abound. Candidate Obama campaigned on narrowing presidential wartime power, closing Guantanamo Bay, trying terrorists in civilian courts, ending enhanced interrogation, and moving away from a wartime approach to terrorism toward a criminal-justice approach. Mr. Obama has avoided these vexing detention issues simply by depriving terrorists of all of their rights—by killing them. (emphasis added)
FYI; John Yoo worked for the Bush DOJ, and was one of those targeted by the Obama administration regarding their legal memorandums that greenlighted what the Obama White House has deemed “Torture”.
So, Barack Obama has backtracked on the closing of the terrorist prison in Guantanomo Bay, and now, he has changed his position on the use of military tribunals for those being held at GITMO.
But, the Left is silent. Michael Moore has made no comments. Markos at the Daily Kos….. barely a peep. What gives?
NEW YORK — The five men facing trial in the Sept. 11 attacks will plead not guilty so that they can air their criticisms of U.S. foreign policy, the lawyer for one of the defendants said Sunday.
Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer for accused terrorist Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, said the men would not deny their role in the 2001 attacks but “would explain what happened and why they did it.”
The U.S. Justice Department announced earlier this month that Ali and four other men accused of murdering nearly 3,000 people in the nation’s deadliest terrorist attack will face a civilian federal trial just blocks from the World Trade Center site.
