Obama: Try Foreign Terrorists in U.S. Courts, U.S. Missionaries in Foreign Courts


I always assumed our nation would treat our own missionaries better than foreign terrorists who have tried to massacre us.  Once again the Obama administration is changing assumptions as they attempt to change America.

Shortly after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, countless Americans looked for a way to help.  A group of 10 baptists – mostly from two Southern Baptist (SBC) churches in Idaho – headed to Haiti in hopes to assist as many orphans as they could.  Their plan was not well planned or orchestrated.   The group gathered up 33 children with plans to take them to an orphanage in the Dominican Republic for aid.

The mission team was apparently ignorant of laws about taking children over Haiti’s border and were arrested on January 29th for kidnapping.  They have been awaiting trial for two weeks now in a Haitian prison.  The attempted good Samaritans could face up to fifteen years for their actions.

How is the Obama administration helping?  They are letting a broken and battered Haiti try the 10 Americans.  Somehow a government famous for corruption BEFORE it was torn to pieces by a natural disaster is going to do an adequate job of trying U.S. citizens.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the case “is a matter for the Haitian judicial system”.

Excuse me?  What was that?  The very mastermind behind 9-11, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed (KSM), is offered a New York City show trial by this administration; but we will not ask the Haitian government to let us try our own people?  You have to be kidding me.

America has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into Haiti to help them in their time of need.  Surely we could ask for this favor.  To make matters worse, Haiti’s Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive told CNN recently that his government would consider transferring the 10 Americans for a U.S. trial.  The only stipulation seems to be that our government must make the request.  As of today, we have yet to make the request.

Hillary, Obama, somebody – get on the phone!  Our own people are in desperate need of American justice.  Why go to such great effort to give that justice to terrorists and not our own citizens?  My mind can’t even get around that logic.
