Feel safe yet? I sure dont. Remember all the dumocrats screaming how the US is “less safe” with Bush as President? Really?? Do you still believe that we will be safer with a Socialist as President?:
WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder said some detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, may end up being released in the U.S. as the Obama administration works with foreign allies to resettle some of the prisoners.
Mr. Holder, in a briefing with reporters, said administration officials are still reviewing individual cases of the approximately 250 detainees to determine which will be put on trial and which may be released to comply with plans to close the detention facility by next year.
Six weeks into his tenure, Mr. Holder is still trying to assemble much of the Justice senior leadership, with several nominees awaiting Senate confirmation. He said he has reviewed the department’s handling of white-collar criminal cases in response to the financial crisis and is considering ways to increase coordination on financial fraud among federal prosecutors and state officials. He said he is trying to increase the budget dedicated to white-collar crime, while maintaining funding for national security.
Feeling safe yet? Just wait, it gets better.
European justice ministers met with Mr. Holder earlier this week and pressed for details on how many Guantanamo prisoners the U.S. planned to release domestically, as part of any agreement for allies to accept detainees. Mr. Holder said U.S. officials would work to respond to the questions European officials have over U.S. Guantanamo plans.
For “people who can be released there are a variety of options that we have and among them is the possibility is that we would release them into this country,” Mr. Holder said. “That process is ongoing and we’ve not made any determinations or made any requests of anybody at this point.”
Are you kidding???! Really, “to be released domestically”. Next we’ll be giving them driver’s licenses (which means they can then buy guns legally), Social Security and Medicaid, and they didn’t even pay into the system, we do!
Then there is this little ditty. You have heard of Canada/Mexico highway that some congressmen in our own government, want to build?? It will allow traffic to flow between Mexico and Canada, over the US! Supposedly security will be maintained to prevent “illegal entry” into the country using this new super highway! Are these senators and representatives crazy? No, they are just plain ignorant. Why do I bring this up in this article, because this next paragraph will show you that we CANNOT even control the illegal gun trade between the US and Mexico and this new superhighway doesn’t even exist yet!
Mr. Holder is planning to visit Mexico next month to meet with his counterparts and discuss efforts to fight the trafficking of guns from the U.S. into Mexico and the drug trade from Mexico into the U.S.
“The Mexican government has been courageous in the way it has confronted the problems that now challenge it,” Mr. Holder said, noting the violence that has resulted from battles against the drug cartels in Mexico.
