Mr. Obama has declared it, so it must happen! What…you didn’t hear? On Wed. June 10th, Mr. Obama’s Justice Department “quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan.”
Mr. Terrorist,who just planted a roadside bomb that killed 12 soldiers, who has just planned a massive plot on American power grid systems, who just abducted an Israeli journalist & beheaded him for Al Qaeda’s next video…
"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to speak to an attorney, and to have an attorney present during any questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be provided for you at government expense."
What? You don’t understand? It’s not a war anymore – for us anyway. You’ll be housed, fed, clothed until your tri-lingual attorney gets his US Govt. $$ & travels to see you. You’re no longer our enemy…
What? I’m still YOUR enemy? Now, now, settle down…We like to say you were misguided into a life of crime. You’re a product of your environment, see?
No. We’re not going to extract information from you to save millions of American lives. We’re not gonna “take you out!” We’re not gonna even detain you! Don’t let what you’ve heard scare you…
Oh, you mean this? At minute 1:58 when Obama smirked @ Gov. Palin’s accusation, “Mr. Obama is less interested in protecting you from terrorists than reading them their rights.”
Ha! Ha! Joke, joke…that sure was funny…
…and then @ minute 2:58, “My position has always been clear. If you’ve got a terrorist, take ‘em out; take ‘em out. Anybody who was involved in 9-11, take ‘em out..” Just forget all that.
Oh. I know he said it again two months after his inauguration, “Now, do these folks deserve miranda rights? Do they deserve to be treated like a shoplifter down the block? Of course not.”
I know…Mr. Bush “considered counter-terrorism operations an intelligence or military issue, not a law enforcement one…But, under Obama's new ‘global justice’ plan, the goal is to ensure that all suspected terrorists can be tried in a U.S. or foreign court of law.”
Does anybody else know about this? Not yet. They sure will think it’s terrific, though. The “Obama administration has never informed Congress of the Miranda policy.”
So, just sit back & relax. No waterboarding for you, no telling us your secret hideouts.
What? You’d like to call you friends & give the signal for your next attack? I guess so…Everybody is entitled to one phone call. I’ll be right back. Want me to get you some coffee, too?
Friends, Mr. Obama made a big joke of Mrs. Palin’s warning that US Miranda rights would be offered to our enemy, that his priority would be mirandizing ‘criminals’ rather than securing our nation from TERRORISTS! He scoffed, smirked & drank in the adoring crowd as he joked @ Mrs. Palin’s expense.
Now, no less than 10 months later, after scoffing at the suggestion again in February, he secretly gives the order to FBI & CIA, "Read them their rights…"
Their rights? Rights conveyed upon citizens of our country under the US Constitution? Rights to TERRORISTS, with whom we are at WAR?? Who’d rather blow us ALL up than see the sunrise again?
We were in a war for the survival of our Nation. We were in the fight for our very lives. Now it’s just another episode of CSI.
It's all such a joke, friends. This time, it seems, the joke is on us.
