I’m a little confused by our president. I guess you could say “he ticked a little toward to center.” No, I’d have to say he ticked all the way to the right. Here’s a man who hated and stopped all enhanced interrogation, promised to close the evil Gitmo, is now investigating or seeking to prosecute attorneys who gave an opinion that enhanced interrogation was consitutional, who wanted with all his heart to bring the terrorist prisoners to New York City for trial, and who wants to advise those captured on the battlefield of their “rights” to an attorney, and be given all constitutional rights when they are not citizens. Of course, none of these things has he actually done.
He turned his back on the sister of one of the victims of 9/11 and said he would not speak up for the halting of the DOJ investigations of those attorneys and also CIA interrogators.
So I’m just wondering how he justifies in his own mind shooting an unarmed man in the head, even if it was Osama, without advising him of his rights and bringing him up for a criminal type trial. I guess Osama was unarmed, it’s hard to know. I think there are now some 20 versions of the event.
I just think it proves that Barack Obama has espoused lots of ideas that just do not work in practice. Do you think he is a closeted conservative?
