The way the world should work

At a Senate subcommittee hearing yesterday Senator Mark Kirk questions Secretary Kerry yesterday regarding Ibrahim al Oosi, a terrorist released released by the Obama administration from the detention facility at Guantanamo who has since returned to work for al Qaeda. Kirk asked Kerry for his thoughts on Ibrahim al Qosi while a staffer held up a picture of al Qosi to jog Kerry’s memory (video below). Kirk expressed the fond hope that “we would end the policy of issuing terrorists to terrorist nations, and where they can get out.”

Kerry responded with the master key to Obama administration foreign policy: “Well, uhh [sniff], Senator, he’s not supposed to be doing that.”

Kerry goes downhill from there as he explains: “And there are consequences for that, and there will be. But apart from that, the fact is that we’ve got people who’ve been held without charges for 13 years, 14 years in some cases. That’s not American, that’s not how we operate.”
