A Britisher’s View

What use is a president, who backpedals, cannot differentiate terrorists from common criminals and appears carefree about placing Americans in harm’s wayi

Providing captured enemy combatants with our Miranda rights is courting disaster, but that prospect has escaped the intellectual radar of President Obama, who may be America’s first president yet for his unsettling compulsion to be liked by the bad guys.

Like manna from hell, Bam’s romanticization of Muslims is exacting a horrid toll at home: On June 1, Pvt. William Andrew Long was murdered and Pvt. Quinton I. Ezeagwula gravely wounded outside their Arkansas recruiting office by jailhouse Islam convert Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who targeted Army personnel, “because of what they had done to Muslims.”

No matter to President Obama, though, who didn’t publicly acknowledge Pvt. Long’s slaying, didn’t attend his funeral and didn’t express outrage over the murder of a US soldier by a Muslim terrorist. The first such act on home soil since 9/11 %u2013 and on his watch.

Not to be outdone, white supremacists shed more innocent blood on June 10, when disgruntled devil James von Brunn opened fire at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC , killing guard Stephen Tyrone Johns, who will be mourned for his supreme sacrifice. Thankfully, Bam remembered to wax anguish over that hateful crime, which should remind him that Jews, not Muslims, bear the brunt of persecution; and, Jews, not Muslims, are his political allies.

Alongside belittling America to the world, Obama is emboldening Islam’s tyrants by ordering the FBI %u2013 secretly, no less %u2013 to provide captured warriors with civilian rights which should belong only to Americans. That dangerous directive %u2013 expressed to The Weekly Standard by surprised House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Mike Rogers [R-MI] %u2013 weakens US intelligence capabilities, and leaves egg on Bam’s face because just months ago, he assured “60 Minutes,” “Do these folks [terrorists] deserve Miranda rightsi Do they deserve to be treated like a shoplifter down the blocki Of course not.”

Instead of flip-flopping, Obama should heed those jihadists who blasted his fawning speech with verbal bombs: Osama crawled from beneath his rock to warn his malevolent masses, “Brace yourselves for a long war against the world’s infidels and their agents.” Iran’s Judiciary Chief Mullah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi slammed “western-style democracy as a supporter of the murderers and those trampling upon the human rights of arabs in Israel.” And, Iran’s top mullah, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, derided that “beautiful speeches” could never dilute the Muslim world’s hatred for America.

So, what now, Bami

Instead of trying to sweet-talk super-sinners into submission, Obama should heed the grim warning of Pvt. Long’s killer that “we are not going to turn the other cheek.” Or, confer with Islam’s saviours, such as Kenyan Muslim Human Rights Forum leader Al-Amin Kimathi, who lamented, “He really toned down on addressing the autocratic behavior of Muslim regimes.”

Either fueled by a need to reconcile his Muslim roots, or plain denseness, Obama is twiddling around with hard-fought American freedoms instead of legislating for a bill of attainder to declare jihadists guilty, and then execute them %u2013 without the costly headache of a taxpayer-funded trial.

Under the current White House, the CIA could not have extracted vital information about future attacks from 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad %u2013 setting the stage for an even worse ‘worst day.’
