A couple days ago, I wrote about the provision in the National Defense Authorization Act that would allow the President to have any US citizen suspected of being a terrorist arrested and detained indefinitely at Guantanamo Bay.
The article went on to reveal that according to Homeland Security, anyone who is missing a finger or fingers may be suspect (I guess they feel that everyone missing a finger did so by building bombs in their garages or basements). Anyone who owns a gun or waterproof ammunition may be suspected of being a terrorist and anyone who stores more than 7 days of food is also a suspected terrorist (that’s my category as we have a stocked pantry and a freezer, so we can buy things on sale and save money).
Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t any terrorist or terrorist organization also considered to be enemies of the United States? That means that myself and anyone else that has food stored up or who lost a finger in an industrial accident could be considered to be enemies of the United States.
Then someone please explain to me how Vice President Joe Biden says that the Taliban are not our enemy even though we’ve been fighting them for ten years?
Worse yet, the White House, the same people that say I could be a terrorist and an enemy, are defending Biden’s statement.
In an interview with Newsweek, Biden said,
“Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy, because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us.”
No wonder our government is so screwed up when they don’t consider Muslim terrorists who’ve been fighting a war against us for the past ten years, as being an enemy, while at the same time drawing up definitions that define nearly half of the American population as terrorists and enemies of the state.
Guess when I see the rest of you at Gitmo, we won’t be bothered with any those Taliban dudes.
