Obama Leads Democrats in Return To "Failed Policies of the Past"

Obama and his pals running our government are returning to the failed polices of the 1970's and 1990's in treating terrorist attacks (see Jihad or Holy war) as criminal acts instead of an act of war. Bill Clinton thought the first attack on the WTC was just a criminal act... to be dealt with by the criminal justice system.... he was wrong as we later learned.

Reading throatcutting, carbombing, airline highjacking cowards their Miranda rights and giving them a free lawyer is no way to fight terrorism... or as Obama now instructs us to call it... "manmade disasters". KSM was waterboarded instead and it saved thousands of innocent lives.

Just another example of "change" meaning change to the failed policies of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton on foreign policy.

The Weekly Standard has the story...
"Miranda Rights for Terrorists"
“The administration has decided to change the focus to law enforcement. Here’s the problem. You have foreign fighters who are targeting US troops today – foreign fighters who go to another country to kill Americans. We capture them…and they’re reading them their rights – Mirandizing these foreign fighters,” says Representative Mike Rogers, who recently met with military, intelligence and law enforcement officials on a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan.

One thing is clear, though. A detainee who is not talking cannot provide information about future attacks. Had Khalid Sheikh Mohammad had a lawyer, Tenet wrote, “I am confident that we would have obtained none of the information he had in his head about imminent threats against the American people.”
