Washington, Nov 13 - House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement on the Obama Administration’s decision to prosecute the mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and several other Guantanamo Bay detainees in New York City before a civilian federal court:
“The Obama Administration’s irresponsible decision to prosecute the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks in New York City puts the interests of liberal special interest groups before the safety and security of the American people. The possibility that Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his co-conspirators could be found ‘not guilty’ due to some legal technicality just blocks from Ground Zero should give every American pause.
“These men are part of a global terrorist network dedicated to attacking America and civilization itself, and on that awful day nine years ago, they succeeded in killing nearly 3,000 innocent men, women, and children. These terrorists were already being tried by military commissions, which were specifically designed to prosecute such heinous acts.
“This decision is further evidence that the White House is reverting to a dangerous pre-9/11 mentality – treating terrorism as a law enforcement issue and hoping for the best. We need a real strategy for fighting and winning the war on America’s terrorist enemies that includes an effective, credible, and consistent plan for all terrorist detainees.”
The GOP leader also correctly stated; “This decision is further evidence that the White House is reverting to a dangerous pre-9/11 mentality – treating terrorism as a law enforcement issue and hoping for the best.”
Obama's irresponsibly; lack of concern for America and her values, along with his demand for political correctness in all things Muslim is putting this nation and her people at great risk.
This President is the most devoid of values, and the most corrupted by his narcissism than any prior president we have ever had.
He places our country, and indeed the entire free world (what's left of it) in great peril by his actions, and in some cases lack thereof.
We can only hope the nation makes it through this nightmare we the people inflicted upon ourselves.
