Obama's Plan in Action

If we interpret the concerns expressed by the Democrats and new President Obama correctly, then what we see is a group who wants Guantanamo detainees released. Now there's a report identifying three former detainees who were released (under Bush) who have apparently been promoted to high-ranking positions in al-Qaida, to the extent that the three appeared in an al-Qaida video posted to a jihadist website after they were released.

From the report: "The latest case highlights the risk the new US administration faces as it moves to empty Guantanamo of its remaining 245 prisoners and close the controversial detention camp within a year."

Obama promised a lot of things to a lot of people, but none of his promises received as much emphasis as his vow to deconstruct the security and safety measures implemented by President Bush. So far he's issued several executive orders doing just that. Obama and the other Democrats are very concerned with the rights and well-being of those prisoners held in Gitmo. Apparently, not so much the safety, security or well-being of American citizens -- and our right not to be killed by Islamic terrorists.

So do you feel safer yet?
