Sarah Palin To Obama: Approach 2 Terrorist Threat Is Fatally Flawed

Obama’s meeting with his top national security advisers does nothing to change the fact that his fundamental approach to terrorism is fatally flawed. We are at war with radical Islamic extremists and treating this threat as a law enforcement issue is dangerous for our nation’s security. That’s what happened in the 1990s and we saw the result on September 11, 2001. This is a war on terror not an “overseas contingency operation.” Acts of terrorism are just that, not “man caused disasters.” The system did not work. Abdulmutallab was a child of privilege radicalized and trained by organized jihadists, not an “isolated extremist” who traveled to a land of “crushing poverty.” He is an enemy of the United States, not just another criminal defendant.
It simply makes no sense to treat an al Qaeda-trained operative willing to die in the course of massacring hundreds of people as a common criminal. Reports indicate that Abdulmutallab stated there were many more like him in Yemen but that he stopped talking once he was read his Miranda rights. President Obama’s advisers lamely claim Abdulmutallab might be willing to agree to a plea bargain – pretty doubtful you can cut a deal with a suicide bomber. John Brennan, the President’s top counterterrorism adviser, bizarrely claimed “there are no downsides or upsides” to treating terrorists as enemy combatants. That is absurd. There is a very serious downside to treating them as criminals: terrorists invoke their “right” to remain silent and stop talking. Terrorists don’t tell us where they were trained, what they were trained in, who they were trained by, and who they were trained with. Giving foreign-born, foreign-trained terrorists the right to remain silent does nothing to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats. It only gives our enemies access to courtrooms where they can publicly grandstand, and to defense attorneys who can manipulate the legal process to gain access to classified information.

Obama was right to change his policy and decide to send no more detainees to Yemen where they can be free to rejoin their war on America. Now he must back off his reckless plan to close Guantanamo, begin treating terrorists as wartime enemies not suspects alleged to have committed crimes, and recognize that the real nature of the terrorist threat requires a commander-in-chief, not a constitutional law professor.

  1. Re: "It simply makes no sense to treat an al Qaeda-trained operative willing to die in the course of massacring hundreds of people as a common criminal. "

    That is precisely the way to treat him. To give him any form of military trial implies that he is a warrior who fights against us. Instead, he is a criminal and a thug, who should be treated just as a thug should be treated. He has not committed an act of war. He has committed a crime, and he should be tried as a common criminal with an ordinary criminal court judge sentencing him and saying "I have seen murderers and rapists, but never one as low as you" (or something to that effect).

  2. The trial is going to cost $226 million the first year and $200 million each year after that.

    He is a muslim terrorist who was trained in Yemen. He also said he knows several dozens solders, like him, are on the way to do the same. Your solution gave him a lawyer which instructed him to shut-up and valuable intel was lost for ever!

    Please wake-up. Obama is a complete disaster and we all should unite to stop the destruction of the USA by him, Pelosi and Reid.
