Today, I am literally feeling sick to my stomach. I have been warning folks for the past dozen months or so that if Barack Obama were to be elected president of these great United States, bad things would happen. Wednesday, a horrible thing took place in the Oval Office of the White House.

President Obama signed a “get out of Gitmo free” card for the hundreds of terrorists who are being held in one of the finest prison systems in the world.

This is completely, utterly outrageous, in addition to being dangerous and irresponsible. My mind is reeling in horror at the potential danger to every single man, woman and child in this country who faces unnecessary risk from suicide bombings, IED explosions, biological warfare and other nefarious plots that only the twisted Islamic radical fundamentalist mind can dream up.

President Obama –in the name of God – what have you done?

The families of the 9/11 victims are praying that they live long enough to see the monsters being incarcerated at Gitmo receive justice, but that hope is fading.

The 9/11 families also said they were concerned that if the trials were moved to criminal courts in the U.S., the proceedings would put civilians at risk. They don’t want to see O.J. Simpson trials for terrorists where terrorists are able to win their freedom with the help of the ACLU and other terrorist-advocacy groups.

“The safest place to have these trials is Guantanamo Bay. If they were to move to the homeland, it would endanger all of us,” said Lorraine Arias Believeau of New Jersey, whose brother, Adam, was killed on 9/11.

I would like to take the opportunity in this space to appeal directly to President Obama – don’t do this! The American people were polled by the Gallup organization about the top priorities they want to see your administration tackle, and opening the doors of Gitmo, bringing killers, rapists and thugs to federal prisons on American soil, rated right at the very bottom of the list.

Killers on the loose

So far, I’ve just talked about those terrorists who would be transferred to American soil to face trial. The even more disturbing proposal by Obama’s aides would involve the transfer of some of the terrorists to foreign soil where some would no doubt wind up being set free.

And when Gitmo detainees are set free, let’s just say that they don’t sign up for night courses on napkin folding or training to become a registered nurse or paralegal.

Many of them have instead followed their bloodthirsty passion to kill Americans.

The Pentagon says the number of Guantanamo Bay detainees who rejoined terrorist missions after being released is on the rise. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said that 61 detainees are believed as of last month to have returned to the fight against the United States since being released.

That’s up from 37 detainees who were either known or suspected of rejoining terror efforts.

The point is that we’ve already set free too many people under pressure from those who have falsely maligned our troops serving at Gitmo, accusing them of criminal acts.

I’ve been to Gitmo, and I can tell you from my own firsthand observation that our troops are conducting themselves with dignity and professionalism. They have the toughest beat in the world – looking after the most ruthless, soulless and violent men. Their efforts to keep the scum of Gitmo securely behind bars are part of the reason that America has not been struck again since 9/11.

It’s time for us to fight back – to tell Barack Obama and the Congress that we will not allow them to endanger American security in exchange for a desire by Obama to be “liked” by European ambassadors, United Nations emissaries and terrorist-sympathizing leftist groups that masquerade as human rights organizations.

I urge you to sign the petition to keep Gitmo open, and join our fight to put America’s national security ahead of Barack Obama’s public relations ploy. You can sign the petition online and learn more about our efforts here.
