Step (1): Return all Gitmo detainees to Yemen.
Step (2): Use Predator missiles to strike the baggage-claim area 20 minutes after they arrive.
Just an idea.
Cynical? Of course. Are the bloggers at Think Progress in denial about terrorism? Even President Obama has veered away from campaign rhetoric to deal with the realities of terrorism. From today’s NY Times:
President Obama declared for the first time on Saturday that a branch of Al Qaeda based in Yemen sponsored the attempted Christmas Day bombing of an American passenger jet, and he vowed that those behind the failed attack “will be held to account.”
Do the bloggers at Think Progress believe that Obama’s promise to hold these terrorists “to account” means hugs and flowers or does it mean bombs and bullets? I don’t believe President Obama was being cynical.
