Battle Cry, Gitmo!


Deborah Venable



Well, the fix is in.  Yemeni detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba will not be sent back to Yemen right away because, according to Obama’s all-knowing mouthpiece, Robert Gibbs, “. . . right now any additional transfers to Yemen is not a good idea."


Of course that doesn’t mean that they eventually won’t be sent back there according to National Security Adviser for Counterterrorism and Homeland Security John Brennan. 


We just need to know that this decision was made because this administration is interested only in keeping Americans “safe.”  You know, kind of like the decision to crack down on air travelers even more with absolutely stupid rules and regulations.  That’s all in the interest of keeping us safe too.


We all know that Gitmo has to be closed, just like we all know that granny in the wheelchair and four-year-old towheads need to be searched and/or strip scanned to keep us safe.  Gitmo has to be closed and bathroom privileges denied to air travelers because safety must be insured.  If we just hadn’t let Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab use the bathroom on that Christmas day flight, why, the whole “alledged” incident might have been avoided.  (Everyone knows that Muslim would-be airline bombers need the privacy of a bathroom to load their underwear after all.)  No, he was just being a good little suicide bomber for the rock god, Allah, and washing himself up before he went to be with all those virgins.  See, and you thought I didn’t know about that stuff!


Oh, and Gitmo has to be closed.  I know that too. 


We have got to be the laughing stock of the whole damned world right now!  Instead of whisking that little weasle that set fire to his panties off to, oh I don’t know, say GITMO, as the terrorist that he is, (okay, enemy combatant), he was placed in the judicial system of this country where he has every chance of beating the rap!  We can only hope the prosecuting attorney will have enough gumption to actually insist on a courtroom demonstration of exactly how do you blow up a plane load of people with your underwear?  Let’s have the Al Qaeda classroom version, shall we?  Panty Bombing 101 – pass or fail grade only please!


Gitmo has to be closed and we have to bring all those perverts down there up here to the lower forty-eight to keep us all safe, don’t you know!  That is a rallying battlecry if I ever heard one. 


"One of the very first things Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula used as a tool was Gitmo," according to the mouthpiece.  Oh yeah?  And how does that work?  Strike Back At Gitmo 101 – the next most popular class in terrorist school was able to recruit just because there was a Gitmo?  Please! 


The most important thing to remember is that the tyrants must quickly handle this renewed interest in our safety due to this pesky “alleged” terror attempt so that they can get back to the REAL important stuff of railroading us into socialist healthcare.  They can’t have all this attention diversion to the terrorism issue when there is power to be had from making all our medical decisions. 


If they hurry up and get the deed done, then get Gitmo closed and all those “alleged” terrorists moved here before the census is done, why they can maybe tap into some of that Al Qaeda money for their campaign coffers.  Wow!  A whole new conspiracy theory has just been hatched, folks!  The promise to close Gitmo was more for the benefit of our enemies than for any of us dumb cluck constuents, but if too many of us don’t know how to keep ourselves safe, well, it’s a good thing we have the tyrants to decide for us!


This concludes this “alleged” rant against the current crop of fools making all the rules.
