So many debacles, so little time
With the relase of the 5 Taliban leaders for a deserter, we’ve been mostly assured, by the usual suspects, that they won’t go back to war with us and anyone who thinks they will, well that’s “baloney” per John Kerry. That there has been a “deal” made and we were “promised” that wouldn’t happen. That’s sort of like believing gun control laws will keep guns out of the hands of criminals … it strains credulity.
And, frankly, we’re apparently pretty good at reseeding terrorist ranks as it turns out. Take the terrorist organization ISIS which is now brutalizing Iraq:
The United States once had Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi in custody at a detention facility in Iraq, but president Barack Obama let him go, it was revealed on Friday.
Al Baghdadi was among the prisoners released in 2009 from the U.S.’s now-closed Camp Bucca near Umm Qasr in Iraq.
But now five years later he is leading the army of ruthless extremists bearing down on Baghdad who want to turn the country into an Islamist state by blazing a bloody trail through towns and cities, executing Iraqi soldiers, beheading police officers and gunning down innocent civilians.
Even I remember al Baghdadi’s name and the massive hunt to bring him to ground. He was murderous scum then, and he’s murderous scum now. How in the world we ever let someone like that go is, well, something the Obama administration would have to explain.
Don’t bother asking … the answer is “it’s Bushes fault, you racist”.
