Back To The Naive 9/10/01 Mentality – America At Risk From Left Wing Denial

I think the American people have had a serious wake up call with the specter of a Christmas Day Massacre in the skies over Detroit. I, like countless other Americans, was flying with my entire family around this holiday season, and the idea that we could have all perished as a result of the incompetence and denial displayed by the Obama administration has seriously shaken my confidence that America will remain safe for another year.

The suicidal response from the head of Homeland Security, and the decision to treat this latest Holy War incident as nothing but a civil crime, has exposed the fact that the liberal ideals for security rely on prosecuting the killers after their heinous deed is done, instead of waging a preemptive war on our enemies. The WSJ explains it well today:

Brian Jenkins, who studies terrorism for the Rand Corporation, says there were more terror incidents (12), including thwarted plots, on U.S. soil in 2009 than in any year since 2001.

This increasing terror tempo makes the Obama Administration’s reflexive impulse to treat terrorists like routine criminal suspects all the more worrisome. It immediately indicted Mr. Abdulmutallab on criminal charges of trying to destroy an aircraft, despite reports that he told officials he had ties to al Qaeda and had picked up his PETN explosive in Yemen. The charges mean the Nigerian can only be interrogated like any other defendant in a criminal case, subject to having a lawyer present and his Miranda rights read.

Yet he is precisely the kind of illegal enemy combatant who should be interrogated first with the goal of preventing future attacks and learning more about terror networks rather than gaining a single conviction. We now have to hope he cooperates voluntarily.

This is the same ineptitude that was on display with the Ft Hood Massacre by an American Jihadist (Holy Warrior). The liberals seem blinded, like lemmings running over the cliff, to the idea that we are at war. A war we did not start and which we failed to take seriously for years leading up to 9-11. We cannot be in a position of lawyering up terrorists and providing them the  full protections of our Constitution when they are waging an illegal war against our innocent civilians.

Terrorists want us to protect them with our laws and our courts verses using our military. It is how they are able to attack us without risk, by sending in brain washed robots like we see in these latest attacks on our homeland. They know no court can reach them in another nation. And even when they get here, they rely on dupes to ignore their war on us and give them freedom to attack and kill at their whim. It is a critical element of their war strategy – that we will be too dumb to protect ourselves outright.

The liberal idea that we sacrifice our people to show our superior morality is as dumb as it comes. I am not going to sacrifice my children or family to make some liberal look godlike. I prefer the George S. Patton school of thinking here: let the other dumb bastard die for their cause, we will win and survive.

If there ever was a straw that broke the mirage of Hope & Change it was the specter of the Christmas Day Massacre of 2009. If the Obama administration does start firing the fools in positions of responsibility now, We The People will fire all of them ourselves. And we do not need to wait until 2012 to do so. Failure to protect the rights of Americans by falling down on the job against terrorism is a serious crime. If the Democrats hope to save their party from certain extinction, they will start making the adjustments immediately, without prodding or protest.

If the Democrats wait until 2010 to get serious, after the American people have applied the voting booth’s 2×4 across their collective foreheads, there will be no turning back. Word is we have a wave of new attacks coming at us. If this administration and congress fail to stop any of these, even one, they will be rightfully held responsible for negligent homicide. For a party and leadership big on using the courts in these matters, they will have no avenue to complain if they are, indeed, unable to protect this nation after all these glaring warning signs.

This incompetence ends now – one way or the other.

    The Napolitano strategy comes from the top, Obama.

    There is a reason that President Bush called it the “war” on terror. His intention was not to view attacks on the home land as a civil offense, or a law enforcement gig. His intention was to stop an attack before it happened therefore it was the responsibility of the military. Yep we are back to 911 thinking and we will loose American citizens again. Americans have already experienced what that is like and will not do it again. Mr. Obama, rethink the strategy of bringing KSM to New York. It is a stupid idea, it is also stupid to send 80 Gitmo detainees back to Yemen.

    Having “waterboarded” myself twice… [with help from my lovey Thai wife who hated doing it to me]… I can tell you with 100% certainty…
    .
    Mr. Abdulmutallab would be begging to talk and talk and talk and tell 100% plus of everything he knows… [locations... people... techniques...] if we Americans were not so stupid…
    .
    btw… I have no “flashbacks” … bad dreams… psychological problems… or any other bad effects from being waterboarded…
    .
    But… YOU, Mr. Abdulmutallab… have the right to remain silent… We’ll provide you with a lawyer… Medical Care for life… good food… a prayer rug… spiritual mentoring in prison… books… tv… ah… the list is too long…
    .
    I’m sure Strata readers get it without all this bs…

    Another incompetent political appointee to appease the political correctness police—-Sheriff Joe should have incarcerated Napolitano when she was governor of Arizona as a threat to the security of that state for her failure to control the invasion of illegals. Another retread from the Clinton cabal——we need to eliminate the concept of career politicians from our lexicon. And I am sure our Muslim enemies are shaking in their boots with a woman in charge of US homeland defense (let alone secretary of state)—another sign of American/western weakness and lack of resolve (in their minds—the only place it is important). Apologies in advance to all the strong willed women out there but unless the position is filled by either my mother or one of the many nuns I had the pleasure of knowing, you better get a tough guy in there.

    Another Man caused disaster…

    Phoey.

    When will America denounce the Left?

    Holy Cow, Obama talks about bringing the “alleged” bomber to justice. When we picked up Germans on an American beach, the military took them into custody, “debriefed” them, then shot them. Is the guy a criminal or an enemy combatant? Obama had better make up his mind.

    On 9/11, the other possible targets .. the White House and Congress ?
    Would they be missed if they were hit now ? ….. OK, it’s 9/10 all over again.

    The problem with the dems is that they had to take the opposite side from Bush’s. Their BDS is that strong. They took that side and are stuck with it. It is puzzling as to why. It would not be the first time the dems turned their whole modis operandi or memo of the day on a dime.
