WTC Bombing Prosecutor Rejects President's Task Force Policies As Illegal

-

Dear Attorney General Holder:

This letter is respectfully submitted to inform you that I must decline the invitation to participate in the May 4 roundtable meeting the President’s Task Force on Detention Policy is convening with current and former prosecutors involved in international terrorism cases...

The invitation email (of April 14) indicates that the meeting is part of an ongoing effort to identify lawful policies on the detention and disposition of alien enemy combatants—or what the Department now calls “individuals captured or apprehended in connection with armed conflicts and counterterrorism operations.” I admire the lawyers of the Counterterrorism Division, and I do not question their good faith. Nevertheless, it is quite clear—most recently, from your provocative remarks on Wednesday in Germany—that the Obama administration has already settled on a policy of releasing trained jihadists (including releasing some of them into the United States).

Whatever the good intentions of the organizers, the meeting will obviously be used by the administration to claim that its policy was arrived at in consultation with current and former government officials experienced in terrorism cases and national security issues. I deeply disagree with this policy, which I believe is a violation of federal law and a betrayal of the president’s first obligation to protect the American people. Under the circumstances, I think the better course is to register my dissent, rather than be used as a prop.

    Truly, I'm dead serious, Obama may in the future be tried for treason. It sounds insane I know. But in light of the continuing collapse of any common sense on his behalf. And severe lack of respect for a seemingly dim witted nation that elected him, the Dems may get their impeachment trial they so badly wanted during the Bush administration. Except these nimrods and their Moron of a choice for a leader, will be on the recieving end. But by that time I fear it may be too late.
    Where does everyone get the opinion that Obama is so intelligent ? Had he been Prez during WWI or WWII we would most certainly have lost and Europe would have been under Hitlers rule and the Holocaust would have been a speed bump compared to what he might have done there.
    IMPEACH OBAMA NOW !!!

    I understand Obama intends to release some detainees onto American streets with compensation,at the expense of taxpayers.Not sure if true or not,"a hell of a note"if it is.My gran use to say that,she was a die hard Democrat,but would not recognize her party today!

    Finally someone trying to do something; I am not certain this administration has our country and the majority of its citizens interests as the utmost priority as they all should.

    I agree with the 9-11 prosecutor , Obama does not have the American people first.....he is more concerned with what has happened to the terrorist than what happen to Americans on 9-11........he should be charged with treason

    Who changed Obama's stance on this issue? He initially stated that he did not want to do this - that he wanted to "look forward." Any ideas?

    If you read the Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights and the Constitution you'll find a number of items that obama has tried or is trying to stop, like freedom of speech (fairness doctrine) Freedom to own weapons ( Inter American Treaty) the vast spending spree with no accountability..The list grows.

    If Barack Hussein Obama has any brain in his head at all he had better pay attention to what Andrew C. McCarthy is saying.
