Guantanamo Terrorists Bound For America?

It befits Obama's idea of change

This is change you can believe in. The Wall Street Journal quotes Attorney General Eric Holder:
For "people who can be released there are a variety of options that we have and among them is the possibility is that we would release them into this country," Holder said. "That process is ongoing and we've not made any determinations or made any requests of anybody at this point."
Setting terrorists, sworn enemies of America, free inside this country would be an act of betrayal. But when they aquire guns and start killing us, some will use that as an argument for gun control, such is the logic of the Left.

And such is their hypocrisy that the Democrats can get away with bashing the AIG retention bonuses. Never mind they desperately need these people to stay in their jobs, that they just passed the law that specifically enabled AIG to pay the bonuses and that Obama signed it into law. Did any of them bother to read it? I agree with Jonah Goldberg:
Part of the problem with talking about the AIG fiasco is that there's just too much to get mad about. I'm furious that Obama and the Dems are pretending they were surprised about something they not only knew about for a long time but are responsible for in the first place. This is Chris Dodd's doing for pete's sake. I'm furious, as Larry Kudlow noted yesterday, that Geithner et al are using AIG as a political money laundering operation, bailing out Goldman Sachs and other firms by washing it through AIG. I'm mad about all sorts of things, some of which, alas, are necessary but no less infuriating. But I wouldn't let my anger push me to advocate rescinding constitutional norms or the rule of law to force Dems — or anyone else's — from office or take away their rights.
I would assert it isn't the AIG fiasco, it is the fiasco that is the Obama administration. The Obama administration is shaping up as a disaster of the highest order. The economy is in free fall. Billions we don't have have been earmarked for liberal causes and groups. Trillions we don't have have been spent to bail out the financial, auto, and auto parts industries, with more to come and no end in sight. The budged deficit is at WW II levels. Iran and Russia openly challenge the Monroe Doctorine with impunity. Pakistan has all but withdrawn from the fight against al Qaeda and may yet colapse. The Mexican drug war has pushed into the US southwest. Americans are being murdered by Mexican drug gangs and the Pentagon warns that Mexico may suddenly implode. Congressmen openly threaten private citizens. The rule of law is being subverted. Investors are deliberately demonized and scared for political purposes. Businesses are threatened with higher taxes and increased regulation, and, should card check pass, being run by rules imposed by government fiat. Allies are slighted and betrayed. Iran is developing nuclear weapons and a ballistic missile capability. And, considering it would take only one nuclear bomb to obliterate our electronic infrastructure, which would cause hundreds of millions of Americans to die, Obama is scalling back our ballistic missile defenses and talks about dismantling them outright.

I could go on and on but I'm out of time to continue rambling. Every single problem we Americans face, every single threat, Obama and congressional Democrats have made exponentially worse in just 60 days. Worse is to come. For those who voted for change, you got your wish.
