Gitmo Terrorists in Our Backyard

Attorney General Eric Holder has announced that some Gitmo detainees will end up being released, free as a bird, within the boarders of the United States. Two months ago, when Obama signed the executive order to close Club Gitmo, making us a nation less safe, people were concerned about former Gitmo detainees in federal prisons near people’s homes.  Now, the Obama administration is planning to release them into the public at large.

Obama’s policies do more than take us to a pre-9/11 view of the world.  Rather, the actions of Holder, if enacted, will put dangerous people within our midst, with a government that does not care to stop them except by law enforcement.  Anyone who is watching the current season of 24 can imagine how well that will turn out.  I hope and pray that there will not be another terrorist attack on U.S. Soil.  With the actions of the Obama Administration, however, I fear that this will not be the case.

I share your fear. My husband (retired military) and I reached the same conclusion while watching 24. I’ve just got this creepy, raised-hair-on-the-back-of-my-neck feeling that won’t go away.

So if I end up with one of these “enemy combatants” in my neighborhood, what do I do?
The preferred answer would be to send the pieces to Holder.
