Obama Exports Terrorists
I guess under the Fascist Barack Hussein Obama, Junior our country is now exporting terrorists. How nice. Is that an economic win-win for us? Is it measurably a plus for our GDP? It's a new export, Obama is exporting terrorists. Well, that's only partially accurate since exporting terrorists would mean other countries would be voluntarily accepting the export. But they're not. Obama is dumping terrorists into other countries without their consent and bullying and strong-arming others into taking custody of terrorists they want nothing to do with. Obama is so darn nice to our Allies and tough on states that sponsor terrorists, isn't he?
Two U.S. officials reportedly said that the U.S. was prepared to give Palau up to $200 million in development, budget support and other assistance in return for accepting the Uighurs and as part of a mutual defense and cooperation treaty that is due to be renegotiated this year.
Figures on Palau's federal budget weren't immediately available, but if it is close to its size in 1999, when it was $71 million, the deal with the U.S. would in effect more than double the nation's spending and make it the fastest growing economy in the world.
But the move has riled some lawmakers.
"The Obama administration has still failed to present a credible plan for closing Guantanamo Bay by its self-imposed deadline, but paying $12 million per-head to send trained terrorists to an island paradise hardly seems like a good one," said Rep. Pete, Hoekstra, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee.
"There are many questions the administration must answer including what guarantees it has that the Uighurs will stay in Palau once freed and what plans are in place to keep them from linking up with the radical-jihaddist separatists operating a short distance away in Indonesia and on the Filipino island of Mindanao?
"Without solid answers to these questions, American is left with the first of many bad solutions to a problem solely of the administration's creation."
Obama did just dump terrorists into Bermuda without first consulting them. Bermuda is a British protectorate. Nice way Obama treats Allies and friends huh? BBC News:
A senior US official has told the BBC Washington decided not to tell London ahead of time about a deal to resettle four Guantanamo detainees in Bermuda.
A diplomatic row blew up over Bermuda's decision to accept the four Chinese Muslim Uighurs on a US request.
Bermuda is a British overseas territory but the US official said Washington had acted secretly to ensure success.
The unnamed senior official also told the BBC that Washington was attempting to shield the UK from Chinese anger.
Beijing has demanded the return to China of all 17 Uighurs held by US forces but Washington says they could face persecution in China.
Now a senior US official has told the BBC it was a deliberate decision not to consult London on the resettlement, after other countries came under pressure from China not to accept the Uighurs.
In a highly unusual move, a senior US official said Washington opted to keep details of the deal from London until the last minute to enable Britain to deny all knowledge of the deal and thus avoid China's anger, says the BBC's Washington correspondent Kim Ghattas.
The official said they expected London to be upset but added he felt the deal was made on solid ground, in direct talks with the Bermuda government, who accepted the men as part of guest worker programme.
Britain, meanwhile, has expressed anger that it was not consulted, saying in a Foreign Office statement: "The Bermuda government consider this to be a matter regarding their day-to-day responsibility for immigration.
For the time being London has reserved its expressions of ire for Bermuda, with a spokesman for the UK prime minister insisting Bermuda bore "the primary responsibility for ensuring that the constitutional requirements on the Bermudan government were adhered to".
Britain is supposed to handle Bermuda's defence, security and foreign affairs, but it delegates the authority to make decisions on immigration to Bermuda.
And Obama will have Gitmo enemy combatants roaming the streets of the U.S. AntiWar:
According to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, the Obama Administration has not yet abandoned the possibility of releasing some of the detainees held at Guantanamo Bay into the United States.
Congress has vehemently opposed such a possibility and officials have conceded that at the moment such a plan is “not doable.” The administration is left scrambling to find nations which will accept detainees which have been ordered released by the courts.
And, as I have written and asked in the past, why aren't all you Pbama Cultists opening up your homes to the Gitmo detainees? You love them so much. Your heart bleeds for their civil liberties, their alleged abuse and alleged torture (none of it proven or substantiated) - why aren't you taking these dear souls into your homes and neighborhoods?
