"In office for just two weeks, President Barack Hussein Obama (D) already suffers from cognitive dissonance. President Barack Obama said in an interview [last week] he worried that detainees freed from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo, Cuba, might resume attacks on the United States. But he told NBC News that closure of the prison was a matter of upholding U.S. values and law, and that a failure to do so would ultimately make Americans less secure. 'Can we guarantee that they're not going to try to participate in another attack? No,' Obama said. 'But what I can guarantee is that if we don't uphold our Constitution and our values, that over time that will make us less safe. And that will be a recruitment tool for organizations like al-Qaeda.' Ok, let's put this in plain language -- being president is not community organizing. Being president means you have real responsibilities. A primary responsibility is protecting the citizens. Those citizens killed in a terrorist attack because of freed terrorists are then rendered totally incapable of 'upholding U.S. values and law'; instead they have been sacrificed for the unAmerican value of debasing its citizens to appease enemies. A basic of 'our Constitution and our values' is to protect our shores. Deliberately leaving the country vulnerable to terrorists is unconstitutional." --columnist Ethel Fenig

Agreed....but may I also point out that he is in the EXECUTIVE BRANCH....Not JUDICIAL so all this aside it is not his place in the government to just decide what it is that he believe is Constitutional or not. That is up to the JUDICIAL BRANCH.

I realize that due to his position h has the right to pardon people, however, I still stand by my opinion stated above.
