Terrorist who killed 5 U.S. soldiers freed because Obama refused detention

Judicial Watch reports that the Hezbollah terrorist who kidnapped, tortured and murdered five U.S. soldiers is being set free in Iraq — because Obama refused to admit him to Gitmo and asked the Iraqi courts to decide his fate — they went with telling the terrorist good job and setting him free:

We all knew this would happen back in December when the commander-in-chief handed over the Lebanese militant, Ali Mussa Daqduq, to Iraqi officials. A mainstream newspaper presented it as a “dilemma” for the president as American troops prepared to exit Iraq. Daqduq had been in U.S. military custody in Iraq since 2007 for his involvement in a carefully orchestrated plot that killed, kidnapped and tortured American military officers.

The atrocities took place in a city called Karbala, south of Baghdad in early 2007. Around a dozen terrorists dressed in U.S. military uniforms opened fire on Americans after approaching a camp in five sports utility vehicles resembling U.S. transports. One U.S. soldier died at the scene and four others were kidnapped, tortured and executed. Daqduq, a Hezbollah commander, was the mastermind.

But President Obama didn’t want to remove the terrorist from Iraq without permission from the country, in order not to violate its sovereignty. He also refused to take Daqduq to the U.S. Naval base in Guantanamo Cuba, which houses other high-value terrorists, because the facility is an anathema in the Middle East and Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki would not approve the “unacceptable” Guantanamo option.

So Obama handed Daqduq over to the Iraqis even though several members of congress pointed out that it would be the same as freeing him. Apparently, Iraq pinky promised to hold him accountable for murdering our soldiers. No one, probably not even Obama, really believed that and this week a national newswire story confirmed it.

    And why would anyone be surprised? BHO has released numerous terrorists from Gitmo. He has delayed all the trials for those remaining. He is now busy releasing and amnestying all the illegals in the country. He is refusing to enforce immigration laws, voter protection laws, etc. The whole concept of defending our sovereignty and rule of law is completely foreign to him.

      Sir John, his actions are not being presented in a negative manner in the media. I think that most Americans are completely unaware of these things.

        Sir John, exactly!!!!

        The Obama admin –supposedly so worried about voter rights — has just launched a lawsuit in Ohio (majorly important swing state) to stop the law giving those on active duty in the military an extra 3 days beyond what citizens get for absentee voting. The soldiers need this for two reasons:
        a) in 2008 their ballots weren’t even sent to them until the day before the election making it impossible for them to vote because they didn’t get them until after the election and
        b) those on active duty are often on 36 hour work shifts making it impossible for them to vote under the current timelines even with timely receipt of the ballot

        The Dems well know, of course, that they only ever get about 1% of the military vote and the absentee ballots of servicemen can easily be enough to shift the State into Republican hands.

          you are ridiculous to believe Democrats want voter rights suppressed. Check your facts and wake up dip wad!

          • Lynne says :

            Jack, respectfully, it is an irrefutable fact that the soldiers were not given their ballots in time in 2008 and that there were other obstacles to their being able to vote. They are fighting with their lives on the line, and there cannot be accommodations for them to vote?
            What other possible reason could there be other than the Dems trying to suppress votes for Romney?
            Please make your points in the future in a respectful manner, rather than resorting to calling people names in a juvenile manner.
