Free in Hyannis Port

During his two year campaign for the Presidency, President Obama insisted that he could keep America as safe as any Republican. Based on his first sixty days in office, this is obviously not true. In his short time in office, the President has:

  • Scheduled the closing of the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay with no plan for what comes next;
  • Continued to insist that we should talk to the Mullahs in Iran;
  • Announced that he wants to talk to "moderate" Taliban;
  • Allowed the imposition of Sharia law in the Swat Valley;
  • Announced a date certain for our withdrawal from Iraq;
  • Halted military tribunals for those that sane people refer to as enemy combatants;
  • Refused to recognize that we are engaged in a War on Terror; and
  • Apologized to the Arab media for our prosecution of the War on Terror.

All of these actions are evidence of the fact that the Obama Administration will be unable to keep us safe from the threat of Islamist terror. Unfortunately, as bad as all of these are, they pale in comparison to what Attorney General Eric Holder announced yesterday. The Attorney General said some detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay may end up being released in the U.S. European justice ministers met with Mr. Holder earlier this week and asked for details regarding how many Guantanamo prisoners the U.S. planned to release domestically.

Evidently, the domestic release of these terrorists is part of an agreement for allies to accept some of these detainees. After years of complaining about the Guantanamo prison for enemy combatants, our European friends have decided that they don't want dangerous Islamist terrorists released in their own back yards. So, in an effort to get the Europeans to cooperate, we have to endanger our national security by allowing these killers to roam free here on the streets of America.

Of course the leftists in Congress have been calling for the release of the Guantanamo detainees for a long time. With that in mind, I think that the perfect place for a released Islamist terrorist is Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. This is the home of Sen. Ted Kennedy. We all know that he has wanted these savages released, so why not in his back yard? I'm sure they would enjoy the Cape Cod summers. What's not to like - the boating or the lobster boils? Oh wait, lobster isn't Halal. Still, there's plenty of fresh fish for them to enjoy in order to make a culturally sensitive meal.

Of course, I don't want any of these people anywhere near where my family and I live. So it would be awfully big of Sen. Kennedy to volunteer to host these people who would like to do nothing more than to behead him for being a Catholic. If he lives to tell about it, maybe the program can spread to Pat Leahy's Vermont neighborhood. If it works there, a national roll out may be in order.

It is unfortunate for all of us that the President does not seem to understand the nature of the threat that we face. You cannot rationalize with religious zealots who's primary tenant is to convert, enslave or kill the infidel. I have chosen to take Osama Bin Ladin at his word - that he and his followers are at war with the West. Unfortunately, those in charge don't seem to believe him. I'm afraid that it will take another 9/11 type tragedy before they do.
