Just when you thought defeatism was about to grab America by the throat thanks to Obama, a military judge with balls defied the appeaser-in-chief and refused to stop military tribunal proceedings against a Gitmo suspect.
Judge James Pohl on Thursday refused to halt the arraignment of Abu al-Nashiri, the alledged mastermind of the USS Cole bombing which killed 17 US sailors and injured 50 more. Judge Pohl said that delaying proceedings against al-Nashiri would harm "the public interest in a speedy trial". Frankly, I could care less if that's true or not. If Judge Pohl is defying Obama purely for political reasons that's alright with me. If he's defying the messiah because he's a military man and knows better than a liberal like Obama ever could just what kind of scum the terrorists are, that's even better. Either way I'm giving the judge a high five.
Pohl is taking a risk here. Two other military judges bowed to Obama's executive order and stopped trials against terror suspects. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morell said Pohl will be "told to comply with" the order, too. Just how Judge Pohl will be "told" to obey isn't clear, but if the Pentagon is smart it'll leave Judge Pohl alone. Obama will, too. Judge James Pohl is doing what a military man is supposed to do: defend this country. If he's being hampered in that duty by an appeaser-in-chief beholden to the defeatist left he needs our support and our prayers.
I'm with you, Judge Pohl! You're now my boyfriend, along with Geert Wilders (ooooo, kinky!). Keep sticking it to all the Ramzi El Kabooms* unfortunate enough to fall into your hands. Not every American is an Obama loving defeatist. A lot of us still want the military to do what it's supposed to do: strike terror into the hearts of our enemies. Keep doing your bit, JP, to terrorize those stupid enough to touch a hair on an American's head. You've got my thumbs up, and God bless!
*Ramzi El Kaboom isn't original to me. I heard Dennis Miller say it on The O'Reilly Factor and liked it so much I just had to use it in a post.
