Defending the Terrorists

...or "freedom fighters," as romantic liberals are wont to say.

This article, courtesy of liberal spin machine MSNBC, is sure to draw the ire of the collective liberal community.
"Lawyers for a Canadian prisoner at Guantanamo Bay released excerpts of videotaped interrogations Tuesday, providing a first-ever glimpse into the secretive world of questioning enemy combatants at the isolated U.S. prison in Cuba."
The video, recorded by a hidden camera, shows 16-year-old Omar Khadr sobbing during a 2003 interrogation. This video, according to MSNBC, "provides insight into the effects of prolonged interrogation and detention on the Guantanamo prisoner."

Khadr is a Canadian citizen and is accused of throwing a grenade that killed an American soldier in Afghanistan. In the video, Khadr is being questioned by Canadian agents. Furthermore, the 16-year old detainee claims that he was tortured while at an American detention facility in Bagram, Afghanistan.

My first reaction? What the hell is this kid doing in Afghanistan? I'll tell you what he was doing, like many young, angry Muslim men that "heeded the call" of the mujahadeen during the 1980's, during the emasculated American response years of the 1990's, and post 9/11, they were fighting the dreaded "infidel (that's you and me)."

Where's the evidence of torture? Purportedly, the detainee was moved every three hours to deprive him of sleep and familiar cell mates. And THIS is torture? What would the touchy-feely liberal community have us do when interrogating TERRORISTS? Snuggle up to them? Rub their feet?

No, what the leftist idiot community fails to understand is that, in the misogynist Muslim world, only strength is understood. Moreover, the spineless left also won't admit that Guantanamo Bay is virtually a country club to its detainees. These detainees almost assuredly have been treated better than prisoners in this country, or better than a non-Muslim in a Muslim country.

Furthermore, former 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, himself detained at Guantanamo Bay, states that "we are in hell." Why? Because allegedly, "the military has not given him paper in his cell and failed to deliver a legal motion he wrote to the judge on this U.S. Navy base in southeast Cuba."

Let the leftist uproar continue.

What the leftists refuse to fathom is that the "freedom fighters" in their vernacular, seethe hatred and are desperate to murder as many "infidels (once again: that's you and me)" as possible. According to one of the co-conspirators, he was proud to have trained and participated in attacks on the United States and her global interests:
"'Any attack I undertook against America, or even participated or helped in, I am proud about it, and I am happy, said Waleed bin Attash, a Yemeni who allegedly ran a training camp in Afghanistan for Sept. 11 hijackers."
What the terrorists, and their liberal benefactors will not admit also, is that, according to Marine judge Col. Ralph Kohlmann, "they will not be allowed to see classified material because they lack security clearances and would risk a greater chance of being convicted."

I like Ralph Peters' material. He's pragmatic and fairly apolitical. Thanks for the link; I'll check it out.

Hypocrisy of the "Repatriate Omar Khadr to Canada" Movement

As soon as the Gitmo interrogation tape of Omar Khadr hit the Internet, the blogosphere was flooded with demands to repatriate him to Canada. This wave is reminiscent of a Soviet campaign to free Luis Corvalán from the "fascist regime" of Augusto Pinochet thirty five years ago. The scenario is strikingly similar. A "victim" held by "fascist regimes" this time run by Bush and Harper, and a public outcry for justice. Except for the fact that Luis Corvalán didn't kill anyone and didn't fight for a terrorist group that wants to impose Sharia.

The "repatriate Khadr" crowd describes him as "a child", "a kid", "a boy", and even "a torture victim", with no facts to substantiate the torture claims notwithstanding. They complain about Khadr being mistreated, again, without anything to back up their claims. Some of them are outraged about "child abuse." And they all scream for justice.

They want justice? OK, let's talk about JUSTICE. What about justice for Sgt. First Class Christopher J. Speer, who was (according to an eyewitness) murdered by this "child"? What about justice for Tabitha Speer, who is a widow because of this "kid"? What about justice for Taryn and Tanner Speer, who are left without a father by this "a boy"? And what about all those Afghani civilians and NATO troops who are a little bit safer because this "torture victim" is behind bars? How many of these "repatriate Khadr" hypocrites concern themselves with justice for real victims? In literally hundreds of posts, we couldn't find a single one.

One would ask, what is the reason for this idiocy? The answer is simple. Ignorance. Complete and utter ignorance. Let's forget for a second that Omar Khadr killed Christopher Speer. Let's forget that Khadr's father was an al Qaeda financier. Let's forget that Khadr's family is known for it being al Qaeda sympathizers. Let's just remember what this "child" was fighting for in Afghanistan.

This is what Taliban-imposed Sharia looks like in real life: http://muslimsagainstsharia.blogspot.com/2000/07/hypocrisy-of-repatriate-omar-khadr-to.html

Why don't all of you, bleeding heart demagogues go to Afghanistan and spend a day in a Taliban-controlled territory? And let's talk about Khadr when you get back. If you get back.
