Gitmo; No American flag!!?

Richard Miniter writes:  "Each morning on every U.S. military base around the world, the American flag is raised to a bugle.  But in the interests of not offending the detainees, it was stopped at Guantanamo."

HERE is more.   So, how do you feel about this?   Some of the commenters at the linked site said they should instead paint American flags on every wall of every cell.  I agree.


When does this end?   When does our country go back to being the proud and benevolent country which never took any crap, whose strength and resolve allowed no country to tell US what to do, and certainly no terror suspects to force us to hide OUR FLAG!?   Meanwhile, detainees are treated well to abundant halal food, they're given exercise time, korans and rugs.....and throw feces at our guards and 'our' own ACLU has raised 8.5 million to defend Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. 


What are your thoughts on the flag situation at Gitmo?   I guess our own kids don't have to stand for the salute, so what the heck, huh?   If we don't feel the need to  respect our own symbols of America, why should terrorists?  Does another country's liberals fight so hard to denigrate the country?  I have never heard of it.


Oh...sorry about the image to the right.  I put it there because I think it's troubling that it's the sixth image you get when you Google AMERICAN FLAG.   That's something, huh?   Tons of respect.

Well, that one ruined breakfast today.

It seems that almost everyday, I can count on the Obama Administration to do something so politically correct, so obnoxious, so intellectually vacuous, and so over-the-top that I have to adjust my "suspend dis-belief" settings.

Still, those idiots in the Administration are unbelievable!

How is it possible stuff like this happens? It happens because we let it. Blogs like this and thousands of others are the efforts of citizens to correct this hair brained type of thinking.

Thanks for the post. Now, I have to go out, meet with people, and let them know what's going on.

I read about this atrocity at Gitmo a few days ago, but didn't have the time or the energy to blog about it.

Anyway, not flying the flag in front of the detainees must be demoralizing for our military -- and emboldening for the detainees. Hell, they probably feel as if they're in a tropical resort.

Chuck said...

AOW is right, how does this sit with the troops?

Joe said...

Just more evidence of a love for Islam and a hatred for America.

Disgusting.

Z said...

Good morning, Bob....sorry to ruin your breakfast. This is awful, isn't it.
You said "Thanks for the post. Now, I have to go out, meet with people, and let them know what's going on"

A blogger can't hear anything more rewarding than that. Get out there and tell the truth, our media won't expose these kinds of things.

AOW...imagine being a serviceman working there, fighting for our country and taking the indignities they get from these detainees and realizing our country doesn't even believe in our cause enough to tell the detainees to go fly a KITE because we are flying OUR FLAG?

Chuck and Joe........We have to DO something but what can we do?

I tried to research that image. Can't find it.

Hey Joe,

"The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."
- G.W. Bush, 9/13/01

Meanwhile, Obama did what?

Z said...

Ducky, you couldn't have research too hard if you mean the imagine of the breasts and the flag corset:

http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?_adv_prop=image&fr=yfp-t-351&sz=all&va=american+flag

By the way, why not address my subject? :-) Why attack all around it because you........CAN'T?

Also, I wouldn't be so quick to condemn Joe (your comment doesn't even make sense going to him..why?)...we've got PElosi in 2006 on tape saying that Bush still hadn't found bin Laden but it doesn't matter, that it's too late anyway, and wouldn't do any good.
Then the other day she's GLOWING WITH COMPLIMENTS to Obama...this is an IMPORTANT hit, this is an AMAZING feat!

Oh, Ducky....then there's WHoopi saying the other day how one should NEVER insult a president in public because it sends a bad message to the world...and we have her on tape saying in 2007, I believe, that BUsh is STUPID and worse.

These are obfuscations at geeeeZ you might have wanted to avoid :-)

Z said...

The latest release from Al Qaeda:

"The blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is too precious to us and to all Muslims to go in vain," the statement said. "We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries."

"Soon, God willing, their happiness will turn to sadness," it said, "their blood will be mingled with their tears."

Yes, they threaten us and our country and we have to wait........just wait for the hits.
And even THEN our left will say "But you can't hit back because you might hit innocent people!"

Apparently, OUR PEOPLE don't matter to some. Wouldn't it make the heads spin of those monsters who said the above, if we hit a city we thought they were in? hit it HARD? and left a message like the above?

OH, sorry........we're better than they are. And we'll be deader.

Ducky, let's hear the bed-wetting accusations....we know terrorists don't MEAN what they promise, right?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110506/ap_on_re_mi_ea/bin_laden_al_qaida

that's the article.......they're playing to our leftists after having read the disarray here. They're saying bin Laden didn't die without leaving everything in place to continue terrorism, they're saying "You die as a martyr" (bin Laden)

Remember Obama said we don't want the dead body shown because they'll make him a martyr :-)
Man, they play us like fine violins.

read about this at IBA-Pasto- and posted it---early Thurs. morning-because-
as I have stated many times-
our DoD has been slowly sliding into PC-diversity - 'politics' -

our BEST are in danger when this happens-
the new RoEs (chamber empty being one rule)are a prime example...

Meanwhile, Obama did what?

Ducky, President Obama was able to give the go ahead to take out OBL because of policy that was put in place during President Bush's term.

President Obama was able to give the go ahead to take out OBL because of intel that was gleaned during President Bush's term.

President Obama was wise enough to keep in place just about all of President Bush's policies, except for enhanced interrogation.

Sometimes it takes years and years to follow up on good intelligence information; it has to go through the process of validation, all taking time.

The only thing President Obama had going for him was being in the right place at the right time for if the intel had able to have been processed a little quicker , it could happened just as easy on President Bush’s watch.

And just so ya know I’m not heartless, I give President Obama all the credit for having the brass door knobs to give the go ahead to take out OBL. He certainly had more than President Clinton.

What I do find interesting is, how President Obama has no problem with putting a bullet into somebody's head but he has a problem with water boarding…….

News I'm reading in Australian news and elsewhere:

Osama's daughter (13 yrs old or so) saw daddy killed

We killed unarmed people

Pakistan told us 2 years ago about the compound

http://wap.news.bigpond.com/articles/OsamaBinLadenDead/2011/05/05/Pakistan_told_US_about_Osama_home_in_09_609126.html

Pakistan warns US that this better not happen again and to stop making them look bad

We shot the wife in the leg

etc etc

Is this REAL? Are we going to be made the bad guys now for killing bin Laden?
I knew we had an alternate reality in this world but didn't know it's this sick.


There will be some trial at THE HAGUE. Wait for it.

Scotty said...

News I'm reading in Australian news and elsewhere:

I'm not trying to be a smart ass or anything, Z, but why should we really care what all those others are saying. Like most the nonsense that's being bantered about, it's speculation. There's only a small elect group that really knows what happen.

Everything else is bovine fodder!

Z said...

Scotty, Someone sent that Aussie news to me because they apparently are the only ones reporting that we knew about this compound 2 years ago, compliments of the Pakis.
I'd say that's pretty important.
And I do care; I don't want our SEALS hauled into some World Court for something the libs find wrong..
... and the more I hear of what was done WRONG, I have fears of that.
They'd have never dared under Bush, you know that.

Bd said...

It's a lie.

Pris said...

I'm surprised our troops at Gitmo are still allowed to wear their uniforms!

It must gall Obama he must carry on the pretext of being American, and have our flag on display when he gives a speech.

No matter if he was born in America, he is not American. His formative years were spent in Indonesia, under the influence of Islam, and that's who he is.

So, removing our flag from Gitmo is an indication that he doesn't give a damn about America, or our military for that matter.

He'll use them for his own political needs and photo ops, but his heart isn't in it if he has one, only his power and the leftist goal of once and for all, destroying everything American.

Z said...

bd "it's a lie" You should alert Australia's government and Pakistan, I know they'd appreciate that..thanks so much.

Pris, Santorum mentioned how our American values of decency and morality are being sent down river, too...how a candidate giving up on values is a man giving up on America, and I think we're seeing that in a lot of our politicians.

By the way, they're FINALLY getting to the fact that Obama's people now want corporations to report their political affiliations and donations......FOX is finally covering it...we bloggers did last week. CNN hasn't got it yet.

Alan Colmes was HILARIOUS this morning saying that our troops are just as devoted to Obama as Bush! And the fact that, 35 years ago, Bush skipped a physical in the service and was allowed to leave early (Or whatever the scandal the lefties screeched about was), indicates to the troops that he isn't one of them....Honestly, you just can't make this stuff UP!! :-)

Remember the ROUNDING applause Bush used to get and that video sent around that made even me feel sorry for Obama when the troops barely brought hands together, about 18 months ago. that was sad.

Z said...

"Now more than ever, we need access to the crucial authorities in the Patriot Act," Attorney General Eric Holder told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

..ERIC HOLDER, believe it or not.

NOW, I'm REALLY worried :-)

Scotty said...

I guess if I were to make a point in all this, it’s we can’t worry about what might have been.

If we knew, about this 4 years ago, it makes no difference. It took time to know for sure OBL was there. either way? we got him. So in the whole scheme of things it doesn’t matter.

The world is FULL of arm chair quarterbacks, especially those in the many press offices in whatever country they may reside.

As far as our SEALS being hauled into some court? It won’t happen, trust me, it won’t.

There are more important battles we must concern ourselves with than battling with, “what ifs”

One thing we can count on, the U.N. WILL make some statement that what we did was wrong……who cares! What they say means little in the world anymore.

cube said...

There should be a public outcry over the flag not waving at Gitmo. I say we screech until they're forced to fly it again.

Ducky's here said...

By the way, why not address my subject? :-)

-----------------

Not much to address. One of Frank Gafney's Washington Times bulk buy writers has some accusation, out of context, that doesn't have much importance anyway.

This bizarre sense of entitlement that has the right finding serious affronts at every turn is an issue they have to deal with. The fact that they find so many should be their indicator that they are being irrational.

Z said...

Ducky, thanks for showing your thinking...
I can't STAND Gaffney and pay no attention to him but it's good you are, I guess.

The right is irrational because muslims shamed Americans down from flying our flag?
good one, DUcky.
No offense, but you are quite a jerk.

He watched Dick Cheney's JSOC end-run him and Eric Holder by acting on information obtained by waterboarding terrorist detainees.

Mustang said...

Here's a dose of reality for you, Ducky ... When people are actually trying to do you harm, you aren't paranoid —or irrational.

We do appreciate your consistency, though.

Mustang, why's that so easy for normal people to understand?

Bd said...

Birth certificate issue de-fused, on to the next Fox Lie. No flags in Gitmo, lo!! You righties are so eager to hate over anything you'll buy anything!

Z said...

Bd, PLEASE show us that the flag story is incorrect. I'd really appreciate that.......


see you next week.

Z said...

oh, and no, the birth certf. isn't diffused. and PLEASE stop with the silliness;
I care less about the stupid b.c. than I do the fact that millions have been spent keeping it under wraps.
But, you go ahead reading Moveon.org.....somebody has to.

Bd said...

YOU show me where he spent 'millions' hiding his birth certificate. He did not. YOU show me that Bush produced HIS long from birth certificate. He did not. Neither did McCain.

Speedy G said...

How many lawsuits has the President resisted providing his birth certificate for Bd?

His lawyers want their money. They don't do pro bono work for political hack who have LOST their law licenses like the Obamas.

Z said...

Speedy, thanks for trying to show Bd the truth, but it doesn't work.

Bd..GOOGLE does wonders in looking for the McCain info...you'll see McCain's birth cert.
Bush ...? My God, was there a question about it? WHEN? :-)

without a doubt he was legal.
Neither Bush nor McCain locked their birth certificate up........are you confused about something?

And, please....Obama has actually $1.7 million spent on legal fees and nobody can see how much has been fighting for eligibility...As you know, I Published a post recently saying I wouldn't much give a hoot about the Birth Cert. EXCEPT that Obama seems to... A president doesn't have to reveal what he's spent where...and our fed. dollars have been spent, too, by the way.
Find my post on that and see the links...you'll be surprised.

Maybe Bush was too busy putting school children in peril (like you said he did on 9/11) to produce a birth cert...ya THINK? :-)

Speedy G said...

I think that the president should offer a notorized "good faith" statement to the press divulging the amount of money he's spent thus far concealing public records like school transcripts and birth certificates on legal fees, on both public AND private attorneys. And until he does, we'll never know how many millions he's spent... but we will know that he has no "good faith" relationship with the American people.

Z said...

Speedy, THAT'll be the day.
