Who moved?

January 23, 2009 · Filed Under World Politics 

Well we could go either way with this premise. Either President Bush seeing grave danger and mounting problems moved with decisive action to house “enemy combatants”. Seeing the need for gleaning necessary information out these ruthless people he had Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo) set up in 2001. This facility was to house not just your everyday purse snatchers, no, these folks were caught out in the battle field with things like machine guns, IED’s, (improvised explosive devices) rocket launchers, laptops filled with plans, contacts, future moves, etc. All these wonderful little gadgets were pointed at our military. Your sons and daughters mind you. One other caveat no one seems to think of is that these “terrorist’s” wear no distinguishable uniform. You can’t tell an Al Qaeda member from the local merchant. They blend and move in and out of innocent civilians with ease. That’s a huge problem these cowards have presented. That’s a huge problem that needed action. Who moved?

The other way we could go would be to listen to “every wind of doctrine” and bend with the strongest gales. Across the nation and throughout the world lone calls of closing Gitmo and cat calls of mistreatment started soon after it’s establishment. At first these railings weren’t received very well. People of the world hadn’t yet been treated to their daily diet of death, destruction, and mayhem. Provided by the media and all Bush’s fault of course. Then as the glare of the spotlight focused and liberal left groups cried all the louder for “human rights”, one by one politicians began to cave. Not willing to stand up for our own military men and womens rights they bowed to donors and extremist’s. Problems did arise, funny that seems to happen both in war and peace times, instead of handling them, prosecuting the wrong doers and moving on, the liberal left used it to beat down and grind their goals into the American psyche. Polls were thrown at us almost daily and our weak elected leaders on the left and some on the right saw this as a possible problem in their re-election plans. A few did not. (see above paragraph ). Obama ran his platform on many promises, one of which was to immediately close Gitmo on day one. Regardless of valuable information we get that saves Americans, never mind that no one else in the world wants these guys. Save John Murtha, Democratic Congressman from Pennsylvania. Isn’t he the guy that said our troops were murderders and rapists? I wonder how the citizens of PA feel about him aswaging his guilt this way (maybe I give him to much credit for having guilt-that would indicate a conscious). Well now Obama has closed Gitmo with a mighty stroke of his majestic pen. Not right away mind you, lets wait a year then that’s it. Absolutely closing, just not right away, let’s wait a year see what happens and then Gitmo is no more, maybe. Period. Now I ask you. Who moved?

Did the man who stood fast in the face of fierce opposition and a brutal media who exaggerated Abu Ghraib as the ultimate sin that we’ll never live down. That man who saw the need for Americas protection as his foremost calling regardless of the polls. The man who stood for and with the troops at every turn. Was it that man.

Or was it the man who ran on a platform of change and with that turned away from real decisions and hard policy on day two of his administration. Appeasing those who would let American troops be less safe. They have to worry about “terrorists rights” with every door they bust open to find the bad guys and rid this evil off of the battle field.

Which man moved? They both did. One by his convictions, the other by the wind.
