"Rook" has some thoughts on the beheading of James Foley.
Obama's persistent cognitive dissonance has reared it's ugly head again...
Journalist James Foley was barbarically, savagely beheaded by a ISIS Muslim captor with a British accent. Now Obama is putting Eric Holder and his agents on the case to arrest, Mirandize and bring to trial in federal court Foley's executioner, who is apparently somewhere in Syria or Iraq. Then, if he's convicted, the taxpayers will support him in prison for the rest of his life - including cable TV, a gym for staying in condition, air conditioning, three meals a day and clothing. All the things he doesn't have now, costing the taxpayers $80,000 per year.
What resources do the Department of Homeland Security have to accomplish this mission? None! The idea is ridiculous, but politically it plays to Obama's base.
Why doesn't Obama task our SEALs to locate and capture the terrorist, interrogate him under military rules for any useful intelligence, then drop him into the propeller wash of an aircraft carrier? Because the liberals might not approve, although the vast majority of people would cheer for the SEALs and appreciate not having the expense of a trial and lengthy incarceration.
This is a prime example of Obama putting politics and self interest above the interests of the nation, which he has done consistently since taking office. For shame!
