GOP Rep. Pete Hoekstra Says He is "Not Sure Obama Realizes America is Still at War" - Video 11/13/09


Here is video of the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee - Rep. Pete Hoekstra - reacting to President Obama's decision to bring the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, to New York to stand trial before a civilian court. Hoekstra said he cannot understand why in the world Obama is doing this instead of taking the guilty plea of Mohammed and letting his punishment be decided by a Military Tribunal.

Hoekstra makes two outstanding comments toward the end of the video. He said he is "not sure he (President Obama)realizes, even after last week, that America is still at war whether we want to admit it or not."

He also said "the President has to see the world the way that it is, not the way that he wants it to be."

Hoekstra is right. Obama does not believe we are at war with a Radical Islamic Jihadist ideology. He wants to treat these acts as if they are ordinary crimes rather than acts of war - atrocities of war.

"Hoekstra is right. Obama does not believe we are at war with a Radical Islamic Jihadist ideology."

If you believe this, I'm afraid you're naive. And Hoekstra is merely trying to score some partisan politic points. He's pandering to the "shoot first and ask questions later" mentality of hard-line rightwingers.

Larry,

So, BrianMO is naive and Hoekstra is a partisan panderer. Instead of impugning motives, how about dealing with substance? Perhaps you can answer Hoekstra's questions he poses:

Why close gitmo? Why read miranda rights to foreign terrorists?
Try detainees in civilian courts?
Why not take a guilty plea for an answer? Why extend the rights of US citizens to foreigners dedicated to the death of American "infidels"?

Or is it simply easier to call names and avoid the serious issues raised?

Folks, don't argue w/liberal drones.

Omoslem is bent on helping Jihadis.

Ok? Get used to it.

Arguing with apologists for Omoslem and his Jihadi buddies won't change their minds.

Their goal is Jihad, the spreading of the so-called religion that hates bacon.

It's that simple. Their leader just happens to be our president for another 3 years.

Islam is NOT a religion, it's a system of political oppression that regulates EVERY aspect of daily life.

If you don't believe that, prove me wrong by visiting Saudi Arabia and acting gay (they kill you), getting raped (they kill you), stealing an apple (they chop your hand off), saying anything critical of "allah" (jail), or being female (you're beaten like a slave).
