Obama brings Taliban chief to U.S. for trial

By Pamela Geller

The treachery of Obama.

The rout of the Democrats in the recent election has clearly taught Barack Obama nothing. The American people unequivocally declared to President Obama that we are on to him. And he shouted back, “Who cares?”

He has always held the American people in contempt, but now it’s official presidential policy. Now he is sending troops back to Iraq. Apparently the decision was made to send these troops back in September, but Obama held off on announcing it until after the election – in a Friday night news dump.

So now we know that for him nothing is sacred, not even human life. Under Obama, war is politics – and if it’s not politically expedient, then victims, nations and freedom be damned.

Meanwhile, Obama is continuing his jihad to close the prison housing jihad terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, despite realities on the ground and the escalating war on the West by devout Muslim armies. He has released deadly jihadists from Gitmo, only to have them rejoin the mujahadeen and wage holy war.

But this latest act of treason takes Obama’s treachery to a whole other level. Obama has brought Irek Hamidullin, a commander in the Taliban, a murderer of American troops, to the United States for a civilian trial. Read that again. Irek Hamidullin is the first military detainee from Afghanistan to be brought to the U.S. for trial. He is given the same civil rights as an American citizen.

What has Irek Hamidullin done to deserve such special treatment? The Associated Press reported that “according to the 19-page indictment, Hamidullin was an officer and tank commander in the Russian military during the 1980s and was trained in the use of such weapons as anti-aircraft machine guns and portable rockets. He became affiliated with the Taliban in 2001.”

After that, Hamidullin waged jihad against the United States: “The indictment says Hamidullin commanded three groups of insurgents that attacked Afghan border police at Camp Leyza, one of six locations the Taliban had identified as possible targets. He directed insurgents armed with anti-aircraft machine guns to fire at U.S. military helicopters responding to the attack, the indictment says, and later used a machine gun to shoot at U.S. troops and Afghan border police assessing damage at the battle site.”

The indictment also says that Hamidullan was in several instances “the main commander” of jihad terror forces that attacked American troops and military bases. He is charged, according to AP, with “providing material support to terrorists, trying to destroy U.S. military aircraft and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.”

How many Americans has Irek Hamidullin killed? This man was a commander of forces that fought against U.S. troops. Would Obama have brought German Gen. Erwin Rommel to the U.S. for a civilian trial in the middle of World War II? This is happening now because Obama doesn’t want to admit that the U.S. is at war, or that Islamic jihadists around the world have declared war against us. So he pretends that battle-hardened jihadis like Irek Hamidullin are civilian lawbreakers rather than members of an enemy military force.

AP says that Hamidullin “had been held at the U.S. Parwan detention facility at Bagram airfield.” But “in light of the agreement by the U.S. that it will turn over all prisons in Afghanistan to the Afghan government by 2015,” Hamidullin is now here in the United States. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges. (This is no surprise: According to the Shariah, he really isn’t guilty.) Now we must suffer this savage to make a mockery of our legal system.

Irek Hamidullin is not a citizen of the United States, and he should not be tried as if he were one. He should not be allowed to turn his trial into a platform for Islamic proselytizing (dawah) and indictments of the United States. But he probably will, and the enemedia will lap it up and give it lavish coverage.

Just as Hamidullin will make a mockery of our judicial system, Barack Obama does as well, by giving him the gift of this trial in an American court. Hamidullin is an enemy combatant. He should get a military tribunal and then a death sentence.

And then when all is said and done, and he gets sentenced to however many years of prison dawah and halal food, he can further radicalize the Muslim converts in jail. He can even raise an army. The conversion of large numbers of prisoners to Islam and their “radicalization” at the hands of Muslim chaplains with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other jihadist and supremacist groups is not just a scandal – it’s a time bomb. Irek Hamidullin won’t be the first or the last jihadi to light the fuse.

But the principal arsonist in this case will be Barack Hussein Obama.
