Obama Rolls Out the Red Carpet for Terrorists

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

In CNN’s Arizona Republican presidential debate, Newt Gingrich commented that under Obama’s presidency, “if you’re America’s enemy, you’re safe.” Newt added “I believe this is the most dangerous president on national security grounds in American history.”

Newt is absolutely right. For more than 11 months, Syria has been embroiled in a bloody, civil war, where over 6,000 people have been killed by President Assad’s orders. What has the Obama administration done? Virtually nothing but stand back and try to work through the useless body called the United Nations where China and Russian vetoed the UN Security Council’s resolution condemning the violence in Syria. Where was the Obama administration calls for Assad to resign months ago?

While Syria burns, the terrorist nation of Iran has been ramping up threats on its intentions to become a nuclear brandishing regime that would not only take aim at American but said it wants “to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.” Again the Obama administration has been slow to act, only recently hitting Iran with economic sanctions. Remember this was the same president who said nothing about Iran’s 2009 rigged elections which allowed President Ahmadinejad to remain in office.

Obama seems to be coddling our enemies more like they are our friends. After jacking up our debt to $15 trillion in three short years, Obama thought now was a good time to build a $750,000 playground at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp (GITMO) so terrorists would feel comfortable. According to military police, the new soccer field was built because that’s the sport of choice for most of the detainees and because they deserve to be rewarded for crimes committed against the United States. Detainees are granted 20 hours a day access to the field.

It’s also worth noting, this soccer field will compliment the already existing indoor recreation field and outdoor field because evidently, the Obama administration feels a terrorist’s well being is a terrible thing to waste. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said he “wasn’t aware of it.” I guess the next thing American taxpayers will be paying for is spa treatments for detainees at GITMO.

Moving on, remember when Attorney General Eric Holder hatched the brilliant idea in 2009 to give the madman behind 9/11 Khalid Sheik Muhammad and his gang of four co-conspirators a civilian trial in NYC. After Mayor Bloomberg and city residents said “hell no, you won’t” Holder backed off with his tail between his legs and said these terrorists would be tried in military courts.

Ever bent on treating terrorists with kindness, this week Obama issued an order which would allow civilian investigators to handle US terrorism cases bypassing military custody. Thanks to the White House’s insistence, the Defense Authorization Act of 2011 grants Obama the right to waive the military detention requirement for terrorists accused of plotting against America. Looks like a slippery slope toward civil trials to me.

President Obama gives terrorists at GITMO a $750,000 playground and apologizes to Afghans for US soldiers burning the Quran but doesn’t demand President Karzai apologize to the US for the Americans soldiers killed by Afghans. Something is very wrong with America, the land of the free and the brave, rolling out the red carpet for terrorists and being more concerned about protecting their freedom, civil liberties and feelings than those of the American people or more importantly our soldiers fighting and dying for us. No wonder America’s enemies feel safe these days.
