America's Neville Chamberlain?
But will be more hated and reviled

I don't remember it word-for-word, but I recall many years ago reading a quote by Harry Truman explaining why he dropped two atomic bombs on Japan. It was words to the effect of; "If the parents of the sons killed during the invasion of Japan knew I had a weapon that could have ended the war sooner, but I chose not to use it, they would have dragged me from the White House and hung me from the closest tree."Granted, Truman was exaggerating a bit and trying to stress just how pissed off the American people would have been if we hadn't used The Bomb (and saved a million American lives, a million British Commonwealth lives, and tens of millions of Japanese lives in the process.)

But now I read that Binyam Mohamed is going to be released by the Obama Administration. Interesting... this is the same less-than-stellar individual who (from ABC News);According to the Combatant Status Review Board filings summarizing evidence against Mohamed for combatant status review tribunal recently made unclassified, Mohamed "received paramilitary training" at the al Faruq training camp in Afghanistan.

There he learned about "light arms handling, explosives, and principles of topography." He was "taught to falsify documents and received instruction from a senior al Qaida operative on how to encode telephone numbers..."

"The detainee proposed, to senior al-Qaida leaders, the idea of attacking subway trains in the United States," the board statement says. In Karachi, Mohamed "received explosives and remote-controlled-detonator training from an al Qaida operative." An al Qaida operative also told Mohamed to go to the U.S. "to assistant in terrorist operations," the document states. He allegedly was planning to use a "dirty bomb."
Not if, but when this shit-bag comes back to kill hundreds, thousands, maybe even tens of thousands of Americans, Brits, whoever... count on Barack Obama becoming the most hated man in the Western World. And a hero in the moslem world.

But don't forget, this is the "hope" and "change" that so many pissed their pants over.

I have the deep suspicion that this is going to end up as Willie Horton on steroids.
