Dick Cheney reiterated the lies he’s been trying to sell to the American people. He’s good at it … he’s done it for years.
Now comes the hard part … what President Obama didn’t do.
He said he would not put a stop to indefinitely holding people suspected (and I did say suspected) of crimes or being members of organizations that vow to kill Americans. The reason why they could not be brought to trial … the evidence was tainted or there simply was no evidence to prosecute them; but, we swear (cause intelligence – who never makes a mistake) say these people are a real threat to Americans.
I got to thinking. A husband hates his wife and her family; he tells his wife he is going to kill her, her mother, her father, her neighbors, her children … and everybody knows how he feels.
He even has a record of violence.
The wife and family go to the police and tell them what was said by the husband. Do we lock this guy up? And if we could, for how long?
A known pedophile gets out of jail. He says he still has urges; we tell him he can’t hang around children, but can we lock him up indefinitely?
The KKK hates Jews, Blacks, (probably Hispanics now) and wishes they were removed from the face of this earth. They have a history of torture and killing. They spew their venom as often as they can and they write books about why these racial groups must be removed from the face of the earth or at least the United States of America. Do we lock all these KKK members up?
How about the National Guard being sent in to take these KKK guys out? Do we do that?
A group of guys in another country hate Americans, wish they were dead and removed from the face of the earth and everybody knows it. Some have even killed Americans right here on our soil. Do we leave the United States and go to another country where we think this group is and lock up a bunch of people that may be part of this group? How about we torture and/or kill a few that we think is part of the group, and, by the way, a thousand or so innocent people who happen to be in the same vicinity get killed. Well, so what … that’s the cost of getting these guys who hate Americans and vow to kill Americans.
