Kerry Calls Threat Of Terrorist Recidivism ‘Baloney’

From the Daily Caller:

Kerry Dismisses Released Taliban’s Promise To Rejoin Fight: ‘I Just Think That’s A Lot Of Baloney’

Brendan Bordelon | 06/08/2014

Secretary of State John Kerry awkwardly dismissed a declaration by released Taliban commander Noorullah Noori that he would return to jihad after 13 years in captivity at Guantanamo Bay, telling CNN’s Elise Labott it was “propaganda” and “a lot of baloney.” Labott interviewed Kerry on Sunday from a ritzy French chateau, with soft piano music ringing gently in the background.

(For the record, that is John Le Kerry’s ‘family chateau’ in France. Kerry did his celebrating of the D-Day invasion there.)

She asked the secretary whether he agreed with National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s contention last week that Army Sgt. and likely deserter Bowe Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction.”

Maybe Ms. Rice should start skipping the Sunday shows.

“There’s plenty of time for people to sort through what happened, what didn’t happen,” Kerry said. “I don’t know all the facts.” “Sounds like you’re not sure he served with honor and distinction,” Labott mused. “No, no no, that’s what I’m saying. That’s not what I’m saying, Elise,”

Before this is all over, Mr. Bergdahl is probably going to end up with a Silver Star just like Kerry.

Kerry pushed back, calling it “offensive and incomprehensible to consciously leave an American behind, no matter what.”

He should tell that to the families of the four Americans left behind in Benghazi.

Kerry also claimed that — despite information to the contrary from the Qataris — the released Taliban fighters are being closely watched in Qatar for any signs of reentry into the battlefield.

So we are going to send drones into Qatar now? Sure we will.

But the secretary seemed to awkwardly stumble over a question regarding Noori, who has already promised he will return to Afghanistan as soon as possible to fight Americans. “Well first of all, uh, propaganda is propaganda,” Kerry began, “and they’ll say whatever they want to stir the waters. So people should not be lured in by their propaganda, number one.”

“Number two, we are ending our combat role,” he continued. “Our combat role in Afghanistan is almost over. We’re going to have very few, you know, people in that kind of position, on occasion, where — but I — I honestly just think that’s just a lot of baloney, to be truthful with you.”

There are still 32,000 American troops in Afghanistan. They will not all be removed until the end of 2016. But now each one of them will have a target on his back.

“And to whatever degree it may be true, they will wind up putting themselves at the mercy of those people who are very effective — who are there — who will deal with those things,” the Secretary of State concluded.

How many of the 29% of released Gitmo terrorists who have returned to jihad has the US killed? We suspect none, or we would be hearing about them now.

      any one on the the list of indictments would have been grounds good enough to be used against President Nixon,
      under such argument as;

      Misprision
      The failure to perform a public duty.
      Misprision is a versatile word that can denote a number of offenses. It can refer to the improper performance of an official duty.
      The most familiar and popular use of the term misprision describes the failure to report a crime
      Under the federal statute, the prosecution must prove the following elements to obtain a misprision of felony conviction: (1) another person actually committed a felony; (2) the defendant knew that the felony was committed; (3) the defendant did not notify any law enforcement or judicial officer; and (4) the defendant took affirmative steps to conceal the felony. Precisely what constitutes active concealment is a Question of Fact that depends on the circumstances of the case. Lying to a police officer satisfies the requirement,
      Misprision of a felony is the offense of failure to inform government authorities of a felony that a person knows about. A person commits the crime of misprision of a felony if that person:
      Knows of a federal crime that the person has witnessed or that has come to the person’s attention, or failed to prevent.
      Fails to report it to a federal judge or other federal official (who is not themselves involved in the crime).
      The common law misprision of felony doctrine has been put into statutory form. But it continues to be controlling in case of people in specific positions of authority or responsibility who fail to act when made known of a federal crime. This would apply, for instance, to federal judges, to Department of Justice employees, to members of Congress, and others. That doctrine has been codified in the federal crime reporting statute, Title 18 U.S.C. § 4.
      Federal Statute for Forcing A
      Federal Officer To Perform a Mandatory Duty
      Another federal statute exists for reporting high-level corruption in government:
      Title 28 U.S.C. § 1361. Action to compel an officer of the United States to perform his duty. The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of any action in the nature of mandamus to compel an officer or employee of the United States or any agency thereof to perform a duty owed to the plaintiff.
      This federal statute permits any citizen to file a lawsuit in the federal courts to obtain a court order requiring a federal official to perform a mandatory duty and to halt unlawful acts. This statute is Title 28 U.S.C. § 1361.
      These two statutes are among the most powerful tools in the hands of the people, even a single person, to report corrupt and criminal activities by federal officials−including federal judges−and to circumvent the blocks by those in key positions in the three branches of government. That statute was also repeatedly blocked by federal judges and Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.

      The crime of misprision of felony is similar to the crime of acting as an Accessory after the fact because both crimes involve some affirmative act to conceal a crime. Two basic differences are that the crime of misprision is committed even if the defendant does not give aid to the criminal and misprision is committed only if the underlying crime is completed.

    When has Kerry ever got it right-about anything?

    GetBackJack/ John Kerry hit the keel with his head.

    I thought John Kerry got is silver medal from scrapping his heel on a boat. That and his anti-war rambling made him a loose cannon and won him an early release from the military without finishing his tour.

    It’s so difficult to know because we have no right to know about who we elect President in the US.

    Now, if the reason Susan Rice spoke on Benghzai, because Hillary Clinton was too tired we would have the right to know if she was too old and worn out to become President of the U.S. and not just brain damaged.

    .

  5. Why even bother to ask questions to these people?

    It’s perfectly clear what the answer is: If it makes the regime look bad, it’s not true. If it makes the regime look good, it’s true.

    Reporters should investigate on their own, get solid conclusions as best they can, and report what was found.

    Only gullible fools or willing accomplices believe the words of liars.
