America: A Cheap Violin

From the BBC:

"Closing the detention centre at Guantanamo is essential to protecting our national security and helping our troops by removing a deadly recruiting tool from the hands of al-Qaeda," a US official said in a statement.

"[Tuesday's] announcement is an important step forward as we work to achieve our national security objectives."
Only in some alternate universe could America become led by such a gaggle of self-loathing anti-Americans who would believe this helps our national security. We might as well have a security policy that amounts to crossing fingers.

Our leaders have allowed foreign and domestic America haters to control the debate about Guantanamo. We allowed them to change the language against us, to use the propaganda of terrorists against us, and to equate the pursuit of our own national interests and the protection of our citizens to the slaughter of innocents. One man's interrogator is another man's suicide bomber, or something.

Somehow, the closing of Guantanamo is supposed to make us safer because the baring of our throats will surely pacify our enemies. And, you know our enemies, they would never be able to create another false scandal to put America on the defensive. Sure, they are supportive of suicide bombings, of attacks on innocents, of the stoning of adulterers, of the hanging of thieves, of the burning of churches, and of riots over blasphemous ice cream treat labels, but they would never go so far as to create another faux scandal to use as a recruiting tool against American infidels.

The international soap boxes to be climbed on by our Guantanamo prisoner pals in their show trials could never be used as a recruiting event. This is because we have given them the rights to a fair civilian trial, and this is all they ever sought to begin with.
"Ahmed, sometimes I wish we could blow up all the infidels in America."

"Why do you say that Mahmoud? Surely you can see the Americans are giving our brothers a fair civilian trial."

"Of course you are right, Ahmed. I should just be content that they will all burn in Hell anyway."
America is being played like a cheap violin. Who elected these idiots into office?
