Almost unbelievable, but here it is- this quote from Air America, but the story is on a number of websites. I wonder if the mainstream press will be interested in it:
"Brian Ross of ABC News reports that two of the four men behind the plot to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day were actually prisoners of the United States and that, under the leadership of President George W. Bush, were released into a Saudi art rehabilitation program."
An art rehabilitation program. That, I guess, is an example of the harsh treatment that Republicans believe in for terrorists, as opposed to Obama's weak-kneed, cowardly approach of putting them in maximum security prisons.
As always, and I want to repeat that, As ALWAYS, Republican pretense of giving a damn about the country or being equipped to deal with our defense is a despicable lie. There's really not much more to say- anyone who trusts Republicans in any way is either a corporate CEO, and in on the joke, or they are a world class sucker.
Update: Can there be any more spectacular example of right wing dishonesty that Pam Geller's response to this news? She starts out her comment with the following remark:
"...releasing enemy combatants is a mentally deranged leftist policy. Jihadis are not "rehabilitable" unless they ..........convert out of Islam. Do I think Obomba will be moved to stop this suicidal insanity? No, I do not."
An excuse to smear Obama for something that occurred long before he became president; however I hardly need to tell you that, in her long diatribe, she never bothered to mention the names of the actual president and vice president who were in charge at the time. I guess that's because, as usual, Republican aren't responsible for anything that goes wrong.
