State Dept: Five Guantanamo Detainees
Will Not Have Substantial Impact on

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/9/2014 6:54:54 PM

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf downplayed the risk that the five Guantanamo Bay detainees exchanged for Sergeant Bergdahl might pose should they return to the battlefield. “Let’s say the worst case scenario, these five guys do return, in no way would that substantially change the Taliban’s order of battle on the ground, that’s just not even logical.” Harf was explaining Secretary Kerry’s recent statement that concerns over the five detainees are “baloney.” “Look,” she said at a briefing Monday, “is there a chance they will return to the battlefield? As Secretary Kerry said, of course. But we believe we substantially mitigated the

If this wasn´t so terribly disturbing it would be hilarious. To actually have the audacity to say such a thing is stunning. These sick radicals in the Obama regime should all be in jail for their criminal behavior and outright lies regarding the enemies of this country.

The State Department did NOT have the right to bet OUR lives on it.
Especially after their track record on Ambassadors.

How would this woman know what these five Islamist jihadists are going to do? The State Dept. looks stupider by the day in the way they are spinning Obama´s decision to release those terrorists.

One would think that the state department could find a better spokesperson than this ding dong. As I have said previously, liberals just say words that spring to mind as they speak. They don´t remember them from day to day and have to make up more nonsense and lies everyday. Blame all this on those dumb jerks who put a microphone in the face of these airheads and then print what was said as fact.

How can she know what they´ll do?

In addition, what they´ll do in the future is one thing; what have they done in the past is an entirely different issue. For that, they most probably deserve imprisonment.

One day before Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s historic primary loss, the Wall Street Journal reported: “Immigration´s Primary Effect Muted.” One day after, the newspaper is reporting nothing like the shocking upset will happen again. “Those senators have been preparing for months and months for whatever might come their way and they won’t be caught off guard,” Brian Walsh, a paid consultant of the National Republican Senatorial Committee told the Journal for a piece headlined “GOP Establishment: No More Surprises Coming.” “I don’t believe the circumstances we saw in Virginia are going to be replicated in any other Senate races,” Walsh told the

A day after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) lost his primary after Dave Brat hammered him on amnesty, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) embraced "immigration reform" on a conference call with Michael Bloomberg´s pro-amnesty group and Grover Norquist. Paul, a potential 2016 contender, reportedly said that "amnesty is a word that’s trapped us," and, according to CNN, emphasized, "If you want immigration reform, there has to be openness to compromise." Earlier on Wednesday, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh declared that when politicians in Washington say "immigration reform" what they really mean is "amnesty." “I say everywhere I go, ´I am

President Obama spoke at a Democratic Party fundraiser Wednesday night and addressed the Beltway conventional wisdom that Eric Cantor‘s defeat at the hands of Dave Brat, an unknown on the national stage, means immigration reform is dead. Obama stated unequivocally that he “fundamentally reject[s]” that idea. The president remarked on how pundits are declaring immigration reform dead and declared, “I fundamentally reject that. I will tell the Speaker of the House that he needs to reject that. Because if you met those kids today, you would know that politics can’t play a part in it.” Obama talked about the importance of standing




Surge in illegals immigrants blamed

Illegal immigrants from Central America are surging across the U.S.-Mexico border because they believe they can take advantage of American immigration policy and gain at least a tentative foothold in the country, according to an internal Border Patrol intelligence memo. The immigrants come seeking “permisos,” which apparently are the “notices to appear,” the legal documents given to non-Mexicans caught at the border, according to the memo, which was viewed by The Washington Times and raised several times Wednesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Those notices officially put the immigrants into deportation proceedings. The immigrants usually are released to await a

I hope I’m wrong, but like a lot of other folks, I’m seeing a pattern here. The lodestar of current American security policy seems to be to reduce our burdens and minimize our involvement — often in the face of hard evidence pointing toward alternative options. No one who has seriously advised a president on intelligence matters would claim that his briefing had an exclusive claim on determining the executive’s decision. Other matters, not least of which are the president’s visions and priorities, carry great import. He is, after all, the one who was elected. The best that an intelligence

The Satanic Temple, which gained international notoriety in May when it tried to hold a Black Mass reenactment at Harvard University, said one of the issues it feels strongly about is “gay rights” and explained that homosexual marriage is “a sacrament,” just like heterosexual marriage. The Satanic Temple (TST) spokesman, Lucien Greaves, who reportedly is a graduate of Harvard University, explained why TST focuses on gay rights in a recent interview with the Detroit Metro Times and expanded on those views in an email to CNSNews.com. When asked about its work on gay rights, Greaves told The Times, “We work

Attorney General Eric Holder has announced that the Justice Department will be utilizing a program originally designed to prevent domestic threats to the United States. The program will label as threats individuals the government has deemed anti-government or racially prejudiced, paving the way to targeting political dissenters. WND reports, "The Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee was created in the wake of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing but was scrapped soon after the 2001 terrorist attacks as intelligence and law enforcement officials shifted their focus to threats from outside the country.

War On Terror: As Mosul falls to al-Qaida and Iraq slips into civil war, Americans are left to ponder the foreign policy wreckage of the Obama administration. Has there ever been an administration this incompetent? It´s doubtful. Iraq´s descent into chaos and civil war is the direct result of President Obama´s decision to abandon that country to its worst elements. Americans who think it doesn´t matter will soon find out it does, because a new, dangerous anti-Western terrorist state has been born in the Mideast. Al-Qaida now controls a vast swath of territory stretching from northern Syria into northern Iraq. Hundreds of thousands

More Americans still believe that Hillary Clinton mishandled the Benghazi, Libya, assault disaster, but even with that black eye, they would rather have the former secretary of state manning a big crisis than President Obama, according to a new poll. In the latest diss of the president, a new Economist/YouGov poll found that 50 percent are “uneasy” about Obama´s ability to juggle an international crisis, versus 37 percent who are confident in him. Some 43 percent are confident Clinton would do just fine, 42 percent uneasy.

The White House on Wednesday suggested that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s shocking defeat in his GOP primary Tuesday happened because Republicans got so little done on Capitol Hill. “I do think that this outcome does provide some evidence to indicate that the strategy of opposing nearly everything and supporting hardly anything is not just a bad governing strategy, it is not a very good political strategy, either,” Obama spokesman Josh Earnest said in a briefing with reporters aboard Air Force One. Little-known economics professor David Brat embarrassed Cantor, the heir apparent to Speaker John Boehner, in the Republican primary Tuesday. The

HOUSTON, Texas--President Barrack Obama is proposing to send some of the illegal immigrant children currently being warehoused in South Texas to Baltimore, Maryland. The Obama Administration is getting pushback from Maryland officials on this proposal. A federal proposal may send hundreds, if not thousands of these unaccompanied minors to a warehouse facility currently under the control of the Social Security Administration (SSA) in Maryland, according to Baltimore´s FOX 45. The report claims that President Obama is asking Congress for an additional billion dollars to take care of the children while they are looking for space to house them across the

A dozen or so senior GOP senators gathered with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) headquarters to raise funds for Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) on Tuesday evening. Noteably, none of them seemed too proud of it, based on how quickly they scurried away from the building—some outright declining to offer even a simple word of praise for Cochran—when asked why they were there. The fundraiser—a last dash from the GOP establishment and McConnell, who is “all in” to save Cochran from his conservative primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel—occurred just hours before conservative Dave

College professor David Brat knocked off House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) Tuesday in the biggest congressional upset in years. Mr. Brat ran an underfunded campaign based in part on Mr. Cantor’s supposed support for comprehensive immigration reform, when Mr. Cantor has for months been seen by immigration reform advocates as the key roadblock to House legislation. Mr. Brat was so unknown that his Wikipedia entry was only two sentences before Tuesday night. Mr. Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., had support from radio host Laura Ingraham, who hosted a rally with him in a

The staggering Republican primary defeat tonight of Eric Cantor, the second highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives and the third most-powerful Republican in Washington, is a reminder of just how volatile American politics has become. And how responsive. Eric Cantor wasn’t supposed to lose. His own pollster had him up by, get this, 34 points the other week. He’d raised nearly $5 million, and in the past two weeks spent $1 million against his rival’s $79,000. Not enough. There’s a lot of triumphalist talk tonight about sending a message to Washington and the establishment vs. the outsiders and all

A bipartisan delegation of House lawmakers are circulating a measure to reprimand the Obama administration for violating a U.S. law mandating that the administration provide Congress with advance notice before releasing dangerous terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The resolution comes in response to White House efforts to keep Congress in the dark about its controversial decision to release five top Taliban prisoners in exchange for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel admitted in testimony to lawmakers Wednesday that the Obama administration intentionally and knowingly ignored the law, which mandates that Congress be given 30

Retailers are starting to push a new trend in menswear: the short suit. The ensemble looks like a regular suit from the waist up, with a sport coat over a button-down shirt and sometimes a tie or bowtie. Instead of trousers, however, the suit´s bottoms are cropped at the knee. J. Crew, Topman, Asos, and Barneys are among the retailers selling the short suit this season. They may be taking cues from fashion icon Pharrell Williams, who donned tuxedo shorts to the Academy Awards earlier this year.

It is just about impossible to keep up with all of the Obama administration scandals, but the corruption of the Internal Revenue Service ranks near the top. Unfortunately, it has gone hand in hand with Barack Obama and Eric Holder’s corruption of the Department of Justice. The perversion of law enforcement agencies for political ends is starkly revealed by the fact that in 2010, as part of its effort to stem the Tea Party movement, the IRS gave the FBI disks containing more than 1.1 million pages of documents on Section 501 non-profits, so that the FBI could selectively prosecute

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News. The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for

In a stunning upset propelled by tea party activists, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) was defeated in Tuesday’s congressional primary, with insurgent David Brat delivering an unpredicted and devastating loss to the second most powerful Republican in the House who has widely been touted as a future speaker. The race called shortly after 8 p.m. Eastern by the Associated Press. Brat’s victory gives the GOP a volatile outlook for the rest of the campaign season, with the party establishment struggling late Tuesday to grapple with the news and tea party conservatives relishing a surprising win. “This is an earthquake,”

Bowe Bergdahl was discharged from the U.S. Coast Guard for psychological reasons, said close friends who were worried about his emotional health at the time. The 2006 discharge and a trove of Bergdahl’s writing — the handwritten journal along with other essays, stories and e-mails provided to The Washington Post — paint a portrait of a deeply complicated and fragile young man who was by his own account struggling to maintain his mental

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America perpetuates “the worst stereotypes” by barring gay people from becoming Scout leaders. “The continuation of a policy that discriminates against gay adult leaders — by an iconic American institution — only preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes,” Holder said in a speech to the gay civil rights group Lambda Legal in Washington. Holder did not announce any legal action against the Boy Scouts. A Supreme Court decision 14 years ago said the Scouts, as a private entity, had a right to discriminate against
