Eric Holder: Terrorist Enabler
by Eric Golub on November 19, 2010 at 9:10 AM
Not since the Pelosiraptor threw a party last week to celebrate the “achievements” of her incompetence has one person glorified his own failure with upbeat insistence of success.
For those who do not watch the aerobics channel, President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder spend their quiet moments together in complicated gymnastics positions bent over and admiring each other’s liberal scents.
Both of these men are more concerned with repudiating their Republican predecessor than with keeping America safe and secure. Every time they screw up, they either blame the previous administration. When that does not work, they simply declare every failure a success.
This was learned from the Clinton Administration, where personal responsibility was illegal. We were told that we were “at peace.” The truth is Radical Islamists were at war with us, and the Clintonistas did nothing about it. Two of the tragedies inflicted on America while Bubba babbled were the twin attacks in 1998 on the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. These were acts of war that were never treated as such.
The man responsible for planning those attacks was Ahmed Ghalaini. For those keeping score, he is a young Arab Muslim male, bringing the percentage of terrorist attacks by this type of individual to near 100%.
Yet with Eric Holder in charge, the American Civil Liberties Union is now free to promote their “hug a terrorist” agenda. After all, hugging trees can be boring because at least terrorist respond.
(Perhaps if liberals knew that terrorists killed trees and bunny rabbits, the left might start disliking Islamists.)
In order to try to erase the very existence of George W. Bush from history, Mr. Obama and Mr. Holder decided to reverse every decision he ever made. This was reflexive. If he favored something, they had to be against it.
Coercive interrogation methods were ruled by Eric Holder to be torture. Keeping prisoners awake for hours or in stress positions was replaced with providing them Chateau Briand and Caviar and hoping that some bonding while watching cable television would lead them to being nicer.
Military Tribunals were supported by former Attorney General John Ashcroft. Since he is a religious Christian, everything he favored had to reversed lest defending America effectively be considered Christian hegemony. Now terrorists would be tried in civilian courts, with full legal protections.
Enemy combatants are now undocumented freedom fighters.
Eric Holder insisted that this strategy of treating terrorists as common criminals would work. Naysayers pointed out that civilian trials were risky. Holder insisted that convictions were a slam dunk. Given that he was not advocating rigged trials, his overconfidence was nothing more than liberal fumes wafting from the backside to the face and being inhaled more frequently than a California college student visiting the marijuana clinic.
Things got off to a bad start when a judge threw out some of the prosecution evidence because it was obtained using coercive interrogation methods. This is Eric Holder’s America, where we show our tolerance of Islamofascists, and they respond by trying harder to kill us while Holder preens for the cameras.
Holder insisted everything was fine. Then the verdict for Ghailani came in.
Not guilty on 224 of 225 counts, guilty on one conspiracy count. Not guilty on all 224 murder counts.
This was a 99.99% failure, yet Holder and Obama claimed victory. After all, one guilty count will probably mean life in prison for Mr. Ghailani.
Oh really? Not so fast.
