War has it’s provocations and consequences. Treason in war is the ultimate consequence. In a declared war treason is punishment of death. If Vietnam was a declared war Jane Fonda would have been hung for treason. The last declared war that the United States was in was World War II. I am not a military lawyer of course but I’m just wondering how much meaning that word treason holds in a declared war by Congress verses these operational kind of wars that the United States has been engaged in since Korea. I still do not understand why Congress would want to give a president powers to go to war when in fact the Congress would not declare it a war. This only gives the next president like in Obama’s case not having the same rationale for the war or appetite when he took over the presidency from President George W. Bush. In Obama’s case he found Iraq and Afghanistan under control and all he had to do was protect them from falling by leaving a reasonable American force there and he didn’t even want to do that much. You cannot wish a war away as in the case of Obama. Obama is delusional for the fact that he thinks we can just take our forces out of the Middle East, be nice to those Islamic radicals and by not calling them for what they are they will leave us alone.
Lets get back to that word treason. A treasonable act can be defined by many ways. It can be by giving the enemy assets such as money, such as weapons, such as spying, or in a case like Obama is doing, he is giving the enemy one of the best assets you can give them and that is people. When he releases terrorists from Guantanamo Bay such as he did with hard core terrorists, which are now known as the Taliban 5 for trade off for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, these terrorists are assets for the enemy. They have expertise that can be retrained and fight and try to kill us once again. This is a treasonous act. What I can’t understand is in one interview with Obama he admitted that it’s always a possibility that they can once again be on the battlefield to kill Americans and yet knowing this he is releasing them. My friends there is something very wrong with this picture.
The following paragraph tells us about one of the released Taliban 5 who has been intercepted making a telephone call to the Taliban which has been posted by Fox News and I am actually happy to see that finally CNN is getting into the action of first reporting it.
“I am extremely disturbed by a report that one of the Taliban 5 is suspected of re-engaging in terrorist activities,” Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee who wants to suspend the transfer of high-risk detainees out of Guantanamo Bay, said in a statement Thursday. “This report highlights the danger of the administration’s irresponsible decision to transfer the Taliban 5, and underscores yet again the serious risks posed by the misguided effort to empty Guantanamo in order to close it.”
We have here a president of the United States who even though he has admitted that releasing the terrorists they might get reengaged and try to do Americans harm and yet he is talking about releasing more terrorists from Guantanamo. Like I said above there is something very wrong with this picture.
