Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has endorsed closure of the Guantanamo Bay facility in Cuba that holds at least 250 suspected Islamic radicals.

In a Statehouse news conference Wednesday, the Democratic governor also said she wasn’t a fan of moving detainees to Fort Leavenworth’s disciplinary barracks in Kansas.

“I do support the president-elect’s intention to close Guantanamo Bay and discontinue what I think has been a huge black eye for this country around the world,” Sebelius said. “Closing Guantanamo Bay doesn’t mean that the prisoners come to the heartland of America.”

The military prison is believed to be on a short list of sites under consideration.

In other words governor you favor their transfer as long as they aren’t headed your way. In some circles, including mine, that’s called being a NIMBY.

Funny, but sad at the same time.

Funny because she’s a NIMBY, which truth be told, is par for the course for many of her political persuasion.

Sad because she is apparently afraid of 250 terrorists yet thinks nothing of vetoing a bill that would regulate abortion procedures in the state that is infamous for its high number of late-term abortions, many of which are performed by Dr. George “Killer” Tiller

The New York Daily News buried this story on page A22 so you have to give USA Today some credit for publishing somewhere other than their obit page.

European and Asian companies are beating their American rivals into Iraq now that security has improved the investment climate, Iraq and U.S. officials say.

“It’s starting to turn … and the people who are getting in on the ground floor are not American,” said Paul Brinkley, the Pentagon official who is leading U.S. efforts to help Iraq rebuild its economy. “It’s ironic.”

Foreign companies, including U.S. investors, have committed to deals worth about $500 million so far this year and Brinkley expects at least $1 billion in foreign investment by the end of the year.

So far, Romanian consortium and a Lebanese company have signed revenue-sharing deals with Iraqi state-owned cement factories. Each group will invest about $150 million.

China has also aggressively pursued the Iraqi market, selling machinery to the government and electronic products to consumers.

Gee, does this mean someone was full of more shit than a Christmas fruitcake in declaring the “war lost” over a year ago?

Does it mean Rep. Pelosi Rep. Felosi was not just incorrect but a blithering idiot when she said the war was “failure” as little as 4 months ago?

Why yes, yes it does!

And what of all those Benchmarks the democraps were all in a tizzy about?

After viewing the above video ask yourself just how much of a cash outlay did al-Qaeda need to bring down the World Trade Center. (estimated to be somewhere between $400,000 and $500,000 to plan and conduct their attack.)

By making “defense spending” a center point in any argument about Iran’s threat shows his complete lack of tactical, strategic and geo-political understanding of the threat both Iran and al-Qaeda pose.

On the world stage ObamaMessiah is a neophyte, a mere babe-in-the-woods, who needs to be placed back in the Senate where (hopefully) he can do less damage than he could from the Oval Office.

Gitmo CartoonThe Pentagon has confirmed that a Kuwaiti released from the US detention camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, three years ago carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq last month.

Abdallah Salih al-Ajmi and two other Kuwaitis are reported by their families to have taken part in an attack on Iraqi security forces in Mosul, a northern city that is the scene of intense fighting.

Although the families did not specify a date, seven people were killed in a suicide attack in Mosul on April 26.

In answer to the title’s question, why yes, she was. Along with these five nitwits and the appeasement monkey Obama-wamma-slamma.

What do all you weak-kneed idjits have to say now?

This is an appropriate place for the sage advice of Jeffrey Breinholt:

It is easy for human rights organizations to criticize Gitmo. The harder problem is finding an acceptable solution to detain terrorists willing to give their lives to kill us. So far, the best one seems to be the Military Tribunals, which might have offered a better alternative than repatriating Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi to Kuwait, where could try to kill those who helped liberate his home country on behalf of those who invaded it.

Six Somalis accused of taking a luxury yacht’s crew hostage have arrived in Paris on a military plane to face questioning, judicial sources said.

They were detained on Friday by French commandos in a helicopter raid soon after pirates released 30 hostages from the French yacht, the Ponant. The six Somalis will be questioned at French police headquarters.

Now that’s funny. The Parisians better not flush any Korans down the commode or Amnesty International will be all in their ass.

RAMALLAH, West Bank (Reuters) – Former President Jimmy Carter, shunned by Israeli leaders over his plans to meet Hamas, said on Tuesday he sought permission to enter the Islamist-ruled Gaza Strip but was turned down.

Carter did not single out Israel by name for having turned down his request to visit Gaza, which Hamas seized in June after routing Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s secular Fatah faction.

Gee thanks Jimmy The Dhimmi, that’s mighty white of ya. But it’s better you didn’t – you’ve already made a fool of yourself for being there – no sense lying about any influence Israel has over Gaza. If Israel did they wouldn’t spend half their time dodging Katusha rockets fired from Gaza.

Jimmy The Dhummi, asshat extraordinare!

As per usual Jay Tea asks the salient questions, on what to do with Asshat-in-Chief Jimmy Carter:

1) Prosecute him for meeting with a known terrorist organization.
B) Prosecute him for violating the Logan Act and attempting to negotiate with a foreign government without the consent of the United States government.
III) Yank his passport and tell him he’s not welcome back here in the US.
d) Give him another Nobel Prize and nominate him for president as a “compromise” between Clinton and Obama.
iiiii) Pack him off to the Old Moonbats Home.

As I write this choices 1 & III are neck-in-neck. I believe I’d vote “none of the above.” We need a fund drive to pay his way into space on the Russian’s Rent-A-Rocket scam. Blast his worthless ass off to the ISS and he can live out his days away from most major harm.

Notice I say most, it’s possible in his confused state he’d think he was on a Habitat for Humanity project, drive a nail through the Space Station skin and kill everyone.

Manila – Two government soldiers were wounded in a clash with communist rebels during a sweep of an eastern Philippine village, an Army spokesman said Friday. The soldiers were on combat operations in Sariaya town in Quezon province, 120 kilometres south of Manila, when they encountered a group of guerrillas.

Army spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Ernesto Torres said the soldiers were scouring the village of Mamala to make sure that rebels had not re-established a base there after a clash last month.

“Two soldiers were wounded in action and were evacuated safely to a military hospital,”
he said. “They are now stable.” Communist rebels have been fighting the Philippine government since the late 1960s, making the movement one of the longest-running leftist insurgencies in Asia.

Yep, they sure have, and have made both the Phillipine Government and the army look like absolute buffoons for just as long.

MEANWHILE in Cotabato City, Philippines – At least five people were killed in a gunfight among relatives over a long-standing land dispute a regional police spokesman said Friday. Superintendent Danilo Bacas said several members of the Muslim clan were also wounded in the fighting that erupted late Thursday in a village in Datu Blah Sinsuat town in Shariff Kabunsuan province, 930 kilometres south of Manila.

“They are actually relatives by blood and by affinity, but they refused to settle their land problem amicably,” Bacas said.

Special police forces have been dispatched to keep the peace as about 20 families living on adjacent land were forced to evacuate to avoid being caught in the crossfire.

Bacas said the family members were all well-armed because they are members or supporters of Muslim rebel groups.

“Good” job there Superintendent Danilo Bacas! You readily admit they are armed and dangerous, in addition to “being members or supporters of Muslim rebel groups” and you sit around with your thumb up your ass. Asshat.

The Marine Corps has dropped its case against a serviceman accused in the killing of 24 Iraqis at Haditha in 2005.

The Corps has given full immunity to Lance Corporal Stephen Tatum who’d been accused of involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault in the killings.

And yet another case dropped, this one to gain Tatum’s testimony against Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich, whose civilian attorney says the dismissal is a demonstration of how weak the government’s case has become.

Yeah, whatever. It also demonstrates the need for The Despicable Murtha to issue another apology. Not that he ever will. I’m just saying is all.

“The Iraqi Perspectives Project — Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents.”

Saddam supported groups that either associated directly with al-Qaeda (such as the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, led at one time by bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri) or that generally shared al-Qaeda’s stated goals and objectives.

Captured documents reveal that the regime was willing to co-opt or support organizations it knew to be part of al-Qaeda — as long as that organization’s near-term goals supported Saddam’s long-term vision.
