Analyst's note:  Absolutely must read.  Another Islamist jihadist operative problem NOT solved by our federal government -- thanks to our current administration.  I have to wonder which Muslim Brotherhood advisor (CAIR) recommended this solution.  Treason still immediately comes to mind with this so-called solution.  We now have yet another case file in "Holdergate"  The enemy is already in our backyard

It continues to be my position that defining, treating and trying “enemy combatants” as “criminals” in civilian courts is unwise, foolhardy, and lacking in historical precedent.  In a recent criminal trial of a Guantanamo Bay detainee, the judge barred the government’s star witness from testifying. 

This is the kind of judicial ruling legal experts were warning would happen if enemy combatants were given access to our civilian criminal court system
Now we see it happening thanks to political correctness.  We find it particularly appalling that these enemy combatants -- who do not wear uniforms and are not part of any country's army -- in our civilian courts are receiving more "rights" than a uniformed enemy combatant receives under the rules of the Geneva Convention.  Why?

So the message the Obama Justice Department is sending to potential terrorists around the world is clear—don’t wear a uniform, target civilians, and you’ll end up with more due process rights than a German POW received during World War II.  Had enough yet? 

When are we going to start treating war criminals for what they really are?  How many more American are going to have to die before we demand justice.

"A Pakistani man arrested in Massachusetts during the investigation last year into the failed Times Square bombing was deported on Sunday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after pleading guilty in federal court to fraud charges.

Aftab Ali Khan, 28, formerly of Watertown, Mass., was flown to Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad, Pakistan, accompanied by ICE agents on a flight from Boston Logan International Airport. He had been in federal custody since May 2010 when he, his uncle and another man were arrested following the failed attempt to bomb New York's Times Square on May 1, 2010.

[....]Following the Times Square attempted bombing, investigators obtained evidence that Khan had provided $4,900 to Faisal Shahzad, who later was convicted of carrying out the bombing attempt. Khan borrowed the money and transferred it to Shahzad in February 2010 as part of a “hawala” transaction in which Khan’s family received an equivalent amount of money in Pakistan.

Shahzad, 30, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, was sentenced in October to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Court records show he had sought to “wreak death and destruction” with a bomb he placed in a car he parked May 1, 2010, in Times Square."

[....]Khan’s removal from the United States was part of a plea deal involving a deportation order that followed his admission that he lied to federal agents investigating him. Khan’s request to appeal the deportation order was dismissed by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) on Jan. 4.


Here are the essential principles for Congress and the Administration according to a recent study by The Heritage Foundation.

[....] "Essential Principles for Congress and the Administration

These lessons can serve as a way to identify future reforms as well as maintain the tools that have worked repeatedly to stop acts of terrorism. Congress and the Administration should continue to examine past successes and failures in order to glean lessons for future reforms. One place to start would be to hold hearings on the Fort Hood attack; Congress has not yet undertaken an adequate assessment of that plot, or of the intelligence failures that led to the massacre. Furthermore, the U.S. should:

  1. Maintain Counterterrorism Tools. Support for important investigative tools like the PATRIOT Act is essential to maintaining the security of the United States and combating terrorist threats. Key provisions within the act, such as the roving surveillance authority and business records provision, have proven essential in thwarting terror plots.

  2. Create a lawful detainment framework for the incapacitation and lawful interrogation of terrorists. Congress should place a prohibition on future attempts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center and work with the Administration to ensure that a lawful detainment framework is created and implemented to deal with enemy combatants.

  3. Reorganize congressional oversight of the Department of Homeland security, accompanied by a department-wide authorization bill, to improve the oversight and guidance by Congress on security matters. More often than not, Congress has focused on providing “checkbook security”: heavy spending on new security paradigms that look good on paper but contribute very little to the security of Americans. Much of this is the result of the chaotic system of congressional oversight. With 108 committees, subcommittees, and commissions with oversight over DHS, politics, rather than smart security, often rules the process. Consolidating oversight would help ease this problem. Congressional leadership should make such consolidation a priority.

  4. Rethink the current grant structure. Currently, too many high-risk jurisdictions lack the level of counterterrorism capabilities they need to prevent attacks. Rather than perpetuating the flawed grant formula, efforts should be made to reduce the number of UASI cities and move toward a structure that favors cooperative agreements to ensure that states and localities can negotiate outcomes on equal footing.

  5. Examine information-sharing gaps. Efforts to increase information sharing between the U.S. and its allies while improving interagency communications between the Departments of State, Justice, and Homeland Security and intelligence agencies are vital to protecting the U.S. from the continued threat of terrorism. One of the central failures leading up to the attempted Christmas Day terrorist attack was the lack of sufficient information sharing between entities across the government. Information sharing must be strengthened both domestically and internationally to allow the early detection of terror plots long before the American public is ever put at risk.

  6. Stay committed to Afghanistan and hold countries accountable for their support of terrorists. Terrorism is a global threat that requires a global response. In order to help combat this threat and stop terrorism at its source, the U.S. should foster continued support for NATO and U.S. counterinsurgency strategies in Afghanistan to prevent the Taliban from regaining influence in the region. Continued pressure on the Pakistani government to shut down Pakistan-based terrorist groups is essential, as are efforts to work with other nations to halt terrorist financing and eliminate terrorist safe havens.

Continuing America’s success in fighting terrorism while preserving national prosperity and individual freedoms requires a dedication by Congress and the executive branch to risk-based security focused on information sharing and intelligence gathering. Only in this way can terror plots be stopped before the public is in danger."
