No Surprise Here

I see in today’s news that a district judge threw out most of the confessions made by Musa’ab Omar Al Madhwani, a terrorist captured in Pakistan in 2002. This was most of the evidence the government had on the him. Surprisingly, U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan ruled there was still enough evidence to detain him.

The 23 “coerced” statements were made in a secret prison, possibly in Afghanistan, and were repeated in Guantanamo.

From the AP:

WASHINGTON (AP) – In a ruling this week, U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan also said the government failed to establish that 23 statements the detainee made to interrogators at Bay were untainted by the earlier coerced statements made while he was held under harsh conditions in Afghanistan.

However, the judge said statements he made during two military administrative hearings at the U.S. detention center in Cuba, where he was assisted by a personal representative, were reliable and sufficient to justify holding the detainee.

The judge said he was particularly concerned that interrogators at Guantanamo Bay relied on or had access to the coerced confessions from Afghanistan made by Al Madhwani.

This is the type of judicial shenanigans we can expect when we give terrorists constitutional rights.


New Airport Scanners

What’s up with the new airport scanners? I have seen 20+ pictures of people going through them. It appears the new scanners can not see through underwear. I have not seen a single penis, vagina, nipple, or any pubic hair. If the new scanners can’t see through underwear, what good are they?

Why do people get upset about privacy invasion? As long as they wear underwear there is privacy.

A Terrorist Victory

As a result to Muslim threats, the US and British embassies in Yemen were closed. Doesn’t that make you proud? Two of the strongest countries in the world turn and run when threatened by medieval, pig eating, little boy fucking, religious fanatics living in caves.

Is this the “new tone” Obama promised the world? I suspect it is. Maybe another apology tour is in order.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab: Such A Nice Young Man

Leave a comment

Whenever someone commits a horrible crime it is inevitable that the relic media will go out and find all sorts of friends, relatives, neighbors, teachers, and co-workers who will attest to his good character. That has already started with the failed terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

The AP was first with this headline on December 27: Bomb suspect’s teacher describes exemplary pupil.

From ABC New we learned that Abdulmutallab led a life of privilege as the son of a prominent Nigerian banker. He lived in an upscale neighborhood in London, attended top boarding schools and a London college.

“He was a very nice, friendly person,” said Efemena Mokedi, a former classmate. “He was a person who did a lot of good things.”

In e-mails sent over the last six years, and obtained by ABC News, Abdulmutallab worried whether his religion would allow him to attend a high school prom, worried about low college SAT test scores.

Newsweek tells us that “because (Umar’s) father called attention to his son’s possible involvement in Yemen, one or more U.S. intelligence agencies did begin some kind of effort to further investigate the son’s Yemeni connections.” But they were unable find anything alarming about the lad.

Michael Rimmer, one of Umar’s British teachers, characterizes Abdulmutallab as a “dream” student: “Very keen, enthusiastic, very bright, very polite.”

Michael Rimmer, again, called him “a model student, very keen, very enthusiastic.”

The US Embassy in London issued a two-year multiple-entry visa to him on June 16, 2008.  “At the time that his visa was issued, there was nothing in his application nor in any database that would indicate that he should not receive a visa. He was a student at a very reputable school. He had plenty of financial resources, so he was not an intending immigrant.

There was no derogatory information about him last June “that would indicate that he shouldn’t get a visa, so we issued the visa,” Kelly said.

And so it goes…

Today it has  been reported that Abdulmutallab bragged that there are many more exactly like him in Yemen and they are waiting to attack us. My fervent hope is that his exploding underwear has taken him out of the human gene pool, so there won’t be any more nice young men exactly like him.
