The House Appropriations Committee today debated what to do with terrorists currently detained at Guantanamo. Since President Obama is committed to closing the detention center, they must be sent somewhere. And for Congressman Schiff at least, the obvious answer is to guarantee them ‘fair trials’ in the United States.
You might think it should be obvious that terrorists should not be given the same rights as the troops who defend us from them. But then again, you might think there’d be no reason to resettle terrorists in the U.S., or to give them welfare benefits. You’d be wrong:
Republicans are trying several tactics to prevent detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, from reaching the United States, introducing legislation aimed at stopping the transfer of terrorists and offering amendments to an emergency war funding bill to deny funding for closing the facility…
Several GOP lawmakers on Thursday introduced the Keep Terrorists Out of America Act, which prohibits the Obama administration from transferring or releasing any suspected terrorist detainees at Guantanamo to any state without express approval from the state’s governor and legislature. The legislation also demands the administration certify to Congress that certain requirements have been met…
On a party line 21-36 vote, the committee also rejected an amendment by Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Kan., who proposed preventing any detainee from entering the United States…
Tiahrt also introduced the No Welfare for Terrorists Act of 2009, which prohibits any detainee from Guantanamo Bay who is released into the United States from receiving federal benefits such as food stamps or welfare.
Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair suggested last month that the U.S. would likely give government assistance to detainees released in the U.S. “to start a new life,” the Kansas lawmaker noted.
Democrats are committed to closing Guantanamo – a dangerous step in itself – but they have no plan after that.
Hey, let’s talk about Guantanamo for all the bleeding hearts that would love to bring one home for dinner.
The media wail about “torture,” but are noticeably short on facts. By Ann Coulter with a few (comments from myself…)
Liberals try to disguise the utter wussification of our interrogation techniques by constantly prattling on about “the banality of evil.”
Um, no. In this case, it’s actually the banality of the banal.
Start with the fact that the average Gitmo detainee has gained 20 pounds in captivity. There’s even a medical term for it now: “the Gitmo gut.” Some prisoners have been heard whispering, “If you think Allah is great, you should try these dinner rolls.” (Yes the “Detainees” are as you may think or as you do not know. Are rude, brutal, spit, throw fecal and other bodily matter on American soldiers on a regular basis. American soldiers that have to attend, feed and otherwise assist and take care of in an overly humane manner everyday.)
In terms of “torture,” there was “the attention grasp,” which you have seen in every department store you have ever been where a mother was trying to get her misbehaving child’s attention. If “the attention grasp” doesn’t work, the interrogators issue a stern warning: “Don’t make me pull this car over.”

Very pertinent to todays issues.
