    This'll scare the stuff'n out of you!

    Obama wants to close GITMO because he says there is no evidence against the terrorists and people shouldn't be held without evidence or trials. BUT that's exactly what he wants to do to Americans on American soil.

    New York Times

    WASHINGTON — President Obama told human rights advocates at the White House on Wednesday that he was mulling the need for a “preventive detention” system that would establish a legal basis for the United States to incarcerate terrorism suspects who are deemed a threat to national security but cannot be tried, two participants in the private session said. ....

    He was almost ruminating over the need for statutory change to the laws so that we can deal with individuals who we can’t charge and detain,” one participant said. “We’ve known this is on the horizon for many years, but we were able to hold it off with George Bush. The idea that we might find ourselves fighting with the Obama administration over these powers is really stunning.”

    The other participant said Mr. Obama did not seem to be thinking about preventive detention for terrorism suspects now held at Guantánamo Bay, but rather for those captured in the future, in settings other than a legitimate battlefield like Afghanistan. “The issue is,” the participant said, “What are the options left open to a future president?”
    'Deemed a national security threat but can't be tried .... '

    '.... for individuals who we can't charge and detain'

    'NOT for terrorism suspects held at GITMO but for those in the future from settings OTHER THAN A BATTLEFIELD'

    So, since a month ago Obama said that there is no longer a 'war on terror' and that we all shouldn't be calling it that ... exactly who are the 'terrorists' from non-battlefield situations that he wants locked up indefinately without trial??? Prolifers? Gun owners? Those who refuse to pay his 'redistribute the wealth' tax??

    And make note - he says 'preventative' ... that means before anyone does anything that is wrong.

    be afraid. be very afraid.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    Don't worry, the government doesn't have enough money to do this.

    They have been running on credit for a long time. That does not stop them from doing anything. Beside they will probably find a way to take away the assets of the people they imprison.

    The government didn't have enough money for the 3.8 trillion dollar budget they just ramrodded through the system either.

    Not that I'm saying Obama is going to set up detention camps for republicans, but not having money has never stopped our government from doing something before.
