The news released last Friday – Friday being a popular day to dump negative or unpopular news because most Americans are thinking ahead to the weekend – was that detainees at Guantanamo Bay are no longer to be referred to as “enemy combatants:”

The Obama administration stopped calling Guantanamo inmates "enemy combatants" on Friday and incorporated international law as its basis for holding the prisoners while it works to close the facility.

The U.S. Justice Department filed court papers outlining a further legal and linguistic shift from the anti-terrorism policies of Republican President George W. Bush, which drew worldwide condemnation as violations of human rights and international law.

That’s a good question. But as Andrew McCarthy points out, the administration had to be seen as doing something to appease the far-left base that helped sweep Obama into office:

Aww the poor widdle terrorists are gonna be called some nice PC title now. And mr big hussein doesnt want to offend then.


  1. The worst US president ever..He's giving the chance for the terrorists to plot another terror attack.Americans should have been waking up by now.Let him be means suicidal to America.

  2. And in the meantime the US is deporting Cambodians who fled in the war in Cambodia in 1973, in a place known as 'The Killing Fields'..what is the crime they are being deported for? I don't know. But why aren't any muslim law-breakers being deported to their countries of origin? In many cases, these Cambodians have been in the US since they were small children, muslims who are causing so much unrest haven't been there that long. But then again, as Hussein Obama, the musso lover...just keeps on keepin' on with his 'I know best' campaign. Truly disgusting. CN.
