Of Course i am using the Harry Reid definition of let loose among us. "loose" ofcourse means that they will be locked up securely in prisons and guarded heavily with an almost zero possibility of anything "bad" happening. There are two groups of people who are about to be set loose. the first is the 4 guys that they just apprehended for allegedly conspiring to detonate a bomb outside a Jewish temple and to shoot military planes with guided missiles. The second is Ahmed Ghailani indicted for the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa.
Hilzoy points out the obvious problem with the first group of newly arrested terror suspects,
This raises the difficult question: what should we do with these would-be terrorists while they await trial? And if they are convicted, what then? I assume that if it's too dangerous to move people at Guantanamo to the United States, it must be much too dangerous to allow these jihadists to run loose in our prisons. After all, they might provide financing for other jihadists from their supermax cells, or radicalize other prisoners, or use special Terrorist Mind Control Techniques to create a whole army of brainwashed convicts under their complete control.
I'd suggest killing them, cutting them into pieces, and shipping their parts to parts unknown immediately (trials? who can afford trials under these circumstances?), if I weren't afraid that some hitherto unknown al Qaeda trick might allow their reanimated body parts to slither around in search of one another and, eventually, reconstitute themselves as the Islamofascist Undead. Earlier, I thought we should send prisoners into space, but that was before I realized that that would allow them to join forces with the Klingons.
In fact, I can't think of a single thing to do that would not make matters worse.
What is the president going to do? He should totally ship them to -tartaros- Gitmo because we cannot afford to have these terrorists loose among us. this is exactly what harry reid foresaw. Im sorry for doubting his intelligence earlier. But wait it gets scarier as another terrorist is set to be loose among us.
A top al-Qaida suspect held at Guantanamo Bay will be sent to New York for trial, an Obama administration official said Wednesday, a major step in President Barack Obama's plan to close the detention center by early next year. Ahmed Ghailani would be the first Guantanamo detainee brought to the U.S. and the first to face trial in a civilian criminal court.
An official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to disclose the decision, told The Associated Press the administration has decided to bring Ghailani to trial in New York. He was indicted there for the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa — attacks that killed 224 people, including 12 Americans. It was not immediately clear when the transfer would occur.
Ghailani, a Tanzanian, was categorized as a high-value detainee by U.S. authorities after he was captured in Pakistan in 2004 and transferred to the detention center at the U.S. naval base in Cuba two years later.
Do you see that? This guy was loose in America already! Now president Obama is getting ready to let him loose again. I now want answers, an investigation, into how many,for how long, and why, these alleged terrorists were already allowed to be loose among us at one point in time. It simply shocks the conscience. I look froward to President Obama's speech on this topic.
I also look forward to harry reid leading the charge against trying mr Ghailani in the United States because of the danger he poses. I believe that might help his sagging pole numbers as he bravely declares America is unable to secure one man for trial on its own shores without the utter collapse of our security.
