Meet Your New Neighbors, the Jihadists

The U.S. Senate has voted overwhelmingly, by a 90-to-6 margin, to deny $80 million in funding for Barack Obama’s inane plan to close the Guantanamo Bay prison. Nonetheless, the egomaniacal Obama yesterday reiterated his intent to do exactly that. Moreover, he used the occasion to criticize the former Bush administration for its “misguided experiment” at Guantanamo.

Obama told an audience at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. that, in order to correct President Bush’s wrong, he will stick to his original timetable of shutting down the facility by January 2010, presumably whether the Congress is on board with this decision or not.

“Let me begin by disposing of one argument as plainly as I can,” Obama assured those in attendance. “We are not going to release anyone if it would endanger our national security, nor will we release detainees within the United States who endanger the American people.”

Was the President implying that some detainees will be freed within the U.S. if they are deemed, by whomever, to pose no threat to Americans? That possibility clearly is making both Democrats and Republicans uneasy. In fact, congressional representatives are being bombarded with phone calls from citizens who don’t even want the Gitmo detainees housed in state or federal prisons, let alone released onto the streets.

Similarly, our European and Muslim allies around the world want nothing to do with the detainees. Already, at least 14% of the prisoners who have been released have gone right back to Jihad.

Thursday’s arrest of four Muslim misfits who were plotting to kill Americans in New York shows that the threat posed by Islamic terrorism is alive and well. We certainly don’t need to swell the ranks of the Jihadis with President Obama’s stupid scheme to bring additional hardened terrorists into the country.
