This just in...

Roses are red, violets are blue, art therapy for terrorists is bullsh*t through and through:

Two of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit were released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November, 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the Northwest bombing in a Monday statement that vowed more attacks on Americans.

American officials agreed to send the two terrorists from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an "art therapy rehabilitation program" and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials.

Guantanamo prisoner #333, Muhamad Attik al-Harbi, and prisoner #372, Said Ali Shari, were sent to Saudi Arabia on Nov. 9, 2007, according to the Defense Department log of detainees who were released from American custody. Al-Harbi has since changed his name to Muhamad al-Awfi.

Both Saudi nationals have since emerged in leadership roles in Yemen, according to U.S. officials and the men's own statements on al Qaeda propaganda tapes.

Both of the former Guantanamo detainees are described as military commanders and appear on a January, 2009 video along with the man described as the top leader of al Qaeda in Yemen, Abu Basir Naser al-Wahishi, formerly Osama bin Laden's personal secretary.

Welcome to the correct side of the issue.

Bush should NEVER have released ANY of them.

Barack "What Me Worry?" Obama (aka: Dickwad) is intent on sending 70+ of them BACK to Yemen...and the rest to Illinois. You're against THAT too...right?

JLawson:

As I've tried to point out before, Bush wasn't able to win no matter what he did. Supposedly Bush knew about the 9/11 attack, but the info was pretty limited - "Obama wanted to attack the US." No dates, no plans, no names - yet supposedly that would be enough to stop an attack? According to the left - it sure was!

And let's suppose the attack WAS actually stopped, through some miracle of intellegence actually getting all the dots connected, and the terrorists arrested.

IMMEDIATELY folks like Sabre5 would have been screaming and shouting about illegal detention! The hijackers hadn't actually done anything! Hijackers don't deliberately crash planes - that'd be stupid! It would have been just another example about how inept the Bush Administration was - arresting people simply because they were Arabic looking, and therefore so scary!

And when they were released due to the outcry from the left - if they WERE to try again, and succeed - care to guess who would have been blamed? Certainly not the people who WANTED them released - after all, they were just doing the right thing!

The left is fundamentally unserious about reality, preferring 'Reality-Based' wishful thinking over actually dealing with hard and cold reality. They seem to believe the hatred some feel toward the US in on a level of mild annoyance, and can be mollified by simply electing the right President, or releasing some people - kind of like tossing out a traffic fine for lack of evidence. "See, all better now! You don't hate us any more, right?" And everyone shakes hands and goes back to business as usual, right?

But the people who want to see the US destroyed for political and religious reasons aren't easily bought off. They HATE us - and are willing to kill and kill and kill. And NOTHING will appease them except death. (From our point of view, preferably theirs.)

There IS no fast fix. There IS no easy solution. This is a GENERATIONAL war, akin to the Cold War only on a lesser level - but as we've seen on 9/11 no less deadly for all that. If it isn't sustained - if the folks masterminding

Now Bush is being blamed for what the left urged him to do - to release folks from Gitmo. So now what - "Yes, we wanted you to release them - but you're still responsible for their release!" is going to be the talking point of the day?

The left is fundamentally unserious about anything but control - and we're seeing they're pretty much unsuited to that!

"If it isn't sustained - if the folks masterminding and supporting such attacks AREN'T dealt with - either through death or the ever-dreaded indefinite detention w/4 squares a day, free medical, housing, clothing, and arrows pointing towards Mecca and all the Korans they can flush - then we're going to lose. We can't make them love us - but we can make them stop through fear of us.

Grace:

The mere fact that this latest attempted suicide-bomber is in a jail created for crimes perpetrated by Americans, that he has been read his Miranda rights and has lawyered-up is another sign that the left is truly nuts when it comes to protecting Americans from terrorism.

As soon as it was known that he had ties to Yemen, his ass should have been put in military detention. I know that he did not attack a military target, but he is obviously a military combatant. They seem to have learned that if they attack civilians and survive, they will survive to fight another day, either with real weapons, or with the media weapons soon to be furnished.

sabre[5 tenths of a brain cell]... "Don't trust Republicans in positions of leadership."

Nor the current "leadership" who currently holds approximately 200 in Gitmo of which approx 100 are of Yemani origin.

Are you all for sending that 100 back home with the very real possibility of them returning to the battlefield?

Or perchance you are in favor of turning the 100 over to the country of Saudi Arabia as your one and only LUV interest is considering?

I mean really, what could a little more art therapy hurt.

In his post, #8, "mag" wonders who OK-ed the "Democrat" potty-allied murderous terrorist barstewards' release?

And the answer is (1) that "Democrats" released them.

And (2) that the same answer applies to any and every action and/or activity that involves the movement of either the machinery of the feral gummint or -- more likely -- the activities of one or another of the of-necessity corrupt "suppliers" and/or "contractors" who gets the very few things done that the feral gummint ever actually gets done.

For the simple fact is that the machinery of the feral gummint has for at least the past eighty-odd years been absolutely under the ownership, operation and control of "Democratic" congresses, "Democratic"potty activist departmental heads -- and of their mobbed-up unionized "Democratic" potty-activist apparatchiks and willing thuggee (remember, EG: Ruby Ridge, Waco and Elian Gonzalez?) minders.

And for the whole of those eighty years that gang has absolutely and stubbornly obstructed, blocked and prevented every Republican President's -- and even a few "Democratic" potty "administration's" -- efforts to in any way effect its policies, and/or, except perfunctorily, has refused to follow its directions and/or to permit the conduct of its duties, the performance of its functions or that it effect its campaign promises.
