Dianne Feinstein Wants To Free More Terrorists

This is not from the Onion, but from an irony proof New York Times:

Obama Is Asked to Reconsider Repatriation of Yemenis

By CHARLIE SAVAGE | April 26, 2013

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who heads the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Thursday that the Obama administration should consider lifting a ban on repatriating low-level detainees to Yemen from Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, where a hunger strike has focused attention on a sense of desperation among inmates there. The prison has 56 detainees from Yemen who were approved for transfer more than three years ago.

But President Obama halted any further transfers after the attempted bombing of a Detroit-bound airliner by a Yemeni-based branch of Al Qaeda on Dec. 25, 2009.

This being the case of the famous ‘Underwear Bomber,’ Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

In a letter to Mr. Obama’s national security director, Tom Donilon, Ms. Feinstein said it was time to examine whether Yemen’s president, Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who has been a strong foe of Al Qaeda since taking office last year, could provide adequate security assurances to return the inmates.

Ms. Feinstein must have the worst case of tin ear in the history of the US Senate.

This is not the right time to be demanding the release of more terrorists. Give it a few more news cycles, when the public will have forgotten the Boston bombings and moved on.

But, lest we forget, more than a month before the underwear bomber’s attempt, British intelligence officials has sent the US a cable warning about his jihadist ties. And even his own father had warned CIA officers at the US Embassy in Nigeria about his son’s "extreme religious views."

While Abdulmutallab’s name was added to the US’s 550,000-name Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment, a database of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), it was not added to the FBI’s 400,000-name Terrorist Screening Database, which is the list that feeds the No Fly List.

But, as the New York Times reported back in December 2009, "At the time Mr. Abdulmutallab’s name was recorded in the Tide database in November, the official said, “there was insufficient derogatory information available” to warrant putting him in the T.S.D.B., no-fly list."

So as we have noted before, history might not repeat itself, but stupidity sure does.

    Give our enemies freedom but restrict and abolish ours.

      Me too, LD.

      One more manifestation of the Liberal Death Wish.

      They haven’t even finished mopping up the blood on Boylston Street, but already the regime is pushing for release of more terrorists, importing more immigrants (without background checks), and new gun controls (background checks on law abiding American citizens).


      Whenever there is a conflict between Liberal doctrine and reality, then reality must always be swept aside.

      (long string of complicated Chinese oaths) … something incredibly evil is whispering in the ears of those who seek to rule us.

      2 Corinthians 4:4 – Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe.

      I guess if you are religious, you know that the initial argument in the garden of Eden was “Who has the right to rule this Earth? God, or humans?” Well, after many many experiments in trial and error, the obvious conclusion is that God is the only one capable of ruling us.

      Humans and their governmental structures are one part irrationality, one part pure evil, and one part absolute madness.

      When you hear about stories of some mathematician going insane trying to find the solution to mathematical theory, or Isaac Newton supposedly delved into insanity trying to solve the mystery of God, you only need to understand that trying to reason with the unreasonable, trying to solve the unsolvable, and trying to make the insane, sane, and trying to make good out of pure evil will only increase your own level of madness.

      Government is the insane, ruling the insane. But what is the most obnoxious part of all of it, is that those who are opposed are labeled as the true insane people, by the insane of course. You question your own thoughts and ideas to double-check to see if by accident they may be correct, which is all part of the insanity process.

      It’s hard, but laugh at the insane people, and listen to your own voice and be confident.
