I agree with the “Ruling Class”
President Obama is really smart. This means he knew what he was doing in his policy and decisions that led to this result Wednesday, November 17, 2010:
Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, Tanzania, was found guilty on one count and acquitted on 276 counts Wednesday, November 17, 2010 in a U.S. District Court in New York. The charges were for Islamist terrorist attacks against U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1988. The Islamists declared war as early as the 1979 bombings (U.S. Embassy Teheran), certainly no later than the World Trade Center bombing in 1993.
President Bush correctly recognized this as war after the September 11, 2001 attack on America.
President Obama has expressed a different view and policy clearly: Overseas contingency operation; Islam is a religion of peace; the Ft. Hood massacre was from psychological disturbances and, of course, try overseas contingencies operators in American Civilian courts with you and me picking up the tab for the defense just to make it fair.
Mark it down, Ghailani today becomes the face of Obama (and the Democrats who follow him) in the 2012 election. Here is the face:
This face will be connect to Barak Obama as firmly as Monica Lewinsky’s was connected to Bill Clinton. The only thing that will change this pictures is more fiascos thus more faces.
Update: My information (NYT) of 277 counts was incorrect. The correct number appears to be:
Convicted 1 count.
Acquitted 284 counts.
