In his reaction speech to former VP Cheney yesterday, our Dear Leader said,
‘We are not going to release anyone if it would endanger our national security, nor will we release detainees within the United States who endanger the American people. As we make these decisions, bear in mind the following fact; nobody has ever escaped from one of our federal “supermax” prisons, which hold hundreds of convicted terrorists.”
This statement is a wonderful example of Clintonian word selection. It is a prime example of doubleplus good duckspeak. The Harvard Law School should be proud.
While nobody has ever escaped from a federal Supermax prison, our Dear Leader leaves out the very important fact that they are full to capacity.
Whoops! There I go again, injecting a dose of reality into a feel good BHO speech again!
Supermax’s approximately 480 concrete cells already are jammed with the likes of Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols, Atlanta Olympics bomber Eric Rudolph and other notorious domestic criminals. There also are 33 international terrorists, including Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, 1993 World Trade Center bombing mastermind Ramzi Yousef and failed airline shoe bomber Richard Reid.
Only one bed was not filled Thursday at Supermax, U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Tracy Billingsley said.
Details like this are important, and one would hope that the President was aware of it. Which leads us the conclusion that the didn’t want the American people to know that he’s trying to pull another fast one.
Our Dear Leader is under pressure from his far left extremist base to close Camp Delta at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Unlike his far left extremist supporters, BHO has to deal with the actual reality of the situation, however distasteful that may be to him.
