Beldar Blog takes Obama to task for this mind-bogglingly ignorant claim:
And, you know, let’s take the example of Guantanamo. What we know is that, in previous terrorist attacks — for example, the first attack against the World Trade Center, we were able to arrest those responsible, put them on trial. They are currently in U.S. prisons, incapacitated.
And the fact that the administration has not tried to do that has created a situation where not only have we never actually put many of these folks on trial, but we have destroyed our credibility when it comes to rule of law all around the world, and given a huge boost to terrorist recruitment in countries that say, “Look, this is how the United States treats Muslims.”
So that, I think, is an example of something that was unnecessary. We could have done the exact same thing, but done it in a way that was consistent with our laws.
Mr. Obama, Sir, if they were incapacitated, how come they pulled off 9/11? Because, Mr. Obama, the Egyptian terrorist group that was responsible for the first WTC attack merged with Osama Bin Ladin’s terrorist organization in the 1990s. Osama’s deputy, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, came from the Egyptian wing. So, we might have jailed a few of the terrorists but we did not destroy their organization, their sources of funding, or their leadership. Based on your utter ignorance of the history of Al Qaeda, and the direct link between the two World Trade Center attacks, you have proven yourself to be unfit to be Commander-in-Chief.
I know all of America’s enemies in the Muslim world are heads down, butt up five, times a day asking Allah to help you become President of the United States. God help America if that happens.
