GTMO, Obama, freed terrorists killing people...OH MY!
(Pay Attention 3 minutes in.)
I have MAJOR concerns over the recent decision by President Obama. The choice to close GTMO and on top to force all US Agencies to follow the Army Field manual is a massive mistake. These Enemy combatants do NOT deserve any rights under Geneva Mr. President. I will reference a reply I made on an earlier post:
Article 4Now with the requirement of all agencies to follow the Army manual, interrogations are basically impossible. They have the right to remain silent. I do not want to convict these people I want to prevent attacks and death. Wait for the left to find the loophole here. I will provide it for all to see.
A. Prisoners of war, in the sense of the present Convention, are persons belonging to one of the following categories, who have fallen into the power of the enemy:
[NOPE]1. Members of the armed forces of a Party to the conflict as well as members of militias or volunteer corps forming part of such armed forces.
[NOPE]2. Members of other militias and members of other volunteer corps, including those of organized resistance movements, belonging to a Party to the conflict and operating in or outside their own territory, even if this territory is occupied, provided that such militias or volunteer corps, including such organized resistance movements, fulfil the following conditions:
[NOPE](a) That of being commanded by a person responsible for his subordinates;
[NOPE](b) That of having a fixed distinctive sign recognizable at a distance;
[NOPE](c) That of carrying arms openly;
[NOPE](d) That of conducting their operations in accordance with the laws and customs of war.
LEGAL AUTHORITIES?? Here we come Clinton way of "fighting terrorism." That worked real well didn't it? 9/11 organized in those years. Since former President Bush instituted these programs how many attacks on the homeland has there been? Are the soldiers or Marines reading the detainees their Miranda Rights? If not I am waiting for them to walk in to a US Court of Law and their defense to say he was never read his rights and to free him? I would put good money on that happening.
i. CPERS suspected of crimes against humanity and war crimes will also be segregated from other prisoners. Legal authorities and the intelligence organization are to be informed of such suspects as soon as possible. They will be taken into custody by law enforcement personnel. Intelligence exploitation should be undertaken in cooperation with the legal authorities.(FM-22-3, E-11)
Why is the CIA now forced to abide by Army regulations? Should our COVERT operatives around the world also start wearing a uniform? We release them from GTMO and they are back on the field fighting us!!!
Don't you think it would have been wise to figure out what you are going to do with all the ECs? Know what you were going to do with them, where they would be before you sign an EO to close the facility?
