“Pussification” begins on Obama watch January 22, 2009

This is how Fox News reported the outset of the official “pussification” of America (boldface is mine):

“WASHINGTON — President Obama, putting his executive pen in his left hand to overrule eight years of Bush administration policy, signed “several” executive orders Thursday, including ones affecting national security.

The national security orders mandate that interrogation techniques in the Army Field Manual be used by all intelligence and law enforcement services; call for a task force to look at closing the detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, within the year; and orders a strategy to be developed for handling detainees in the future. The presidential directive also orders a stay in the case of Ali Al-Marri, the only person being held by the military as an enemy combatant on U.S. soil.

“We intend to win this fight. We’re going to win it on our terms,” Obama said as he signed the orders and the directive in the Oval Office. Obama explained each order before he put his pen to them, in some cases reading them in full, and occasionally solicited input from White House counsel Greg Craig to make sure he was describing them correctly.

The executive order says everyone in custody should be questioned under the Army Field Manual, which is intended for honorable combatants, meaning POWs in a military conflict. The rule would prevent trained interrogators at the CIA from using lawful interrogation techniques against terrorists who have been trained to withstand Army Field Manual techniques.

“The message that we are sending the world is that the United States intends to prosecute the ongoing struggle against violence and terrorism and we are going to do so vigilantly and we are going to do so effectively and we are going to do so in a manner that is consistent with our values and our ideals,” the president said.”

This takes political correctness to the highest level. Possibly making even Bill Clinton blush. First, the obvious question: When did terrorists become “honorable combatants” deserving of grammar school interrogation tactics? I guess I missed it because somewhere between the election and the coronation it appears the definition was altered. Judging from the smiling facing at the signing, I must be the only one unhappy about this.

As far as the “message we are sending the world”: 1) the “world” can piss off! This president is suppose to protect this nation, not posture for the cry-baby countries who don’t want us to be the strongest nation in the world. If Obama wants the USA to be like all other nations…the ultimate socialism…this is a good first step, and 2) If violence is to be inflicted, it is to be on our enemies first and foremost so they will think twice about trying to perpetrate it on our citizens in their homeland EVER AGAIN.

Demonstrate to me how going by the Army Field Manual and sending messages to the world increases the protection of this nation, and I’ll back off. These executive orders, like Obama’s campaign rhetoric, do not accomplish a thing in assisting those who have volunteered to do it, better protect this nation.

You kill these cockroaches where they live so they don’t spread. Unfortunately, this president doesn’t see it that way.
