Obama Administration Reserves Right to Indefinitely Hold Detainees Acquitted of Charges

225px-official_portrait_of_barack_obamaThe Obama Administration continues its retention and expansion of abusive Bush policies — now clearly Obama policies on indefinite detention and blocking the investigation of war crimes. Jeh Johnson, the Defense Department’s chief lawyer, has stated that it is a “policy question” whether acquitted individuals will be released or held indefinitely.

In May, President Obama announced that he supported indefinite detention of individual in violation of both domestic and international law. He has even found his detention policies to be a subject of jokes.

Liberals continue to be largely silent in the face of policies that they once denounced and protested. It is rare to hear any coverage or questions of the Administration’s refusal to investigate war crimes of torture, for example. Liberals seem to be quickly developing a cult of personality that has supplanted the most basic principles of human rights and international law. As with the Republicans under Bush, the Democrats are refusing to push the Administration to investigate torture or comply with international law. Before the inauguration, various generals and senators claimed that Obama and Holder assured them privately that no one would be investigated for torture. It now appears that these stories were likely true. Democrats must choose between their principles and their politicians — and they appear to be making the same choice as their Republican counterparts.

  1. “But Mike, that is the FATHER youre talking about——what does that have to do with the SON????? HMMMMMMMM???????????????????????????????????????????????????????”

    Again proving that he is not only bigoted but also a deceitful liar, with a fool’s competence, Larry, forgets to react to the body of that quote from me:

    “GWH Bush consistently back up Saudi positions and made his money in deals with them. He currently is involved in business with them through the Carlyle Group. He watched 9/11 with Osama Bin Laden’s brother. His sons are all in business with the Saudi’s and GW Bush’s two failed businesses were funded by the Saudi’s, who absorbed his losses.”

    A father doesn’t a son make, as in Rahm Emmanuel. Four generations in business with rich, anti-Jewish people does a family preference make and I believe the next generation of Bush’s is also being supported by the Saudi’s.

    Larry, you should really give it up you are so easy to debunk that not only does it take little time, but gives me pleasure.
    You are not competent enough to convince anyone about your cause except for maybe Buena Vista Mall. After all though, he
    is as inept as you.

  2. LOL, you “debunked” me? By repeating yourself? That’s classic!!!!! You IGNORED the question completely.
