Obama Doctrine: Don't Imprison Suspects

The Left has raised hypocrisy to epic heights in the post-9/11 world.

Crazed leftists and unprincipled Democrats savaged the Bush Administration for almost seven years because they were holding suspected terrorists who had not been tried in Guantanamo. Malignant lawyers working for the ACLU and the Center for Constitutional Rights -- two seditious enablers of America's foes -- secured the release of many of these "suspected" terrorists who promptly returned to the field of battle to kill more infidels -- including and in particular -- Americans. Now Obama is slaughtering suspected terrorists in Pakistan, without a protest from fellow Democrats. Which is just one small example of how the left has raised hypocrisy to epic heights in the post-9/11 world.

For conservatives, this Obama policy makes sense. We're in a war, and our agenda is to destroy the enemy. No war can be fought without endangering innocents, although civilized nations like the United States should (and probably does) take all the precautions possible. But for Obama and the left, which don't regard our struggle against terrorism as a war, there is no justification for the Obama policies. For unhypocritical leftists -- and there are some -- what Obama is doing is a crime.
