As Obama goes back on his word to not prosecute the brave Americans who kept this country safe, another veil is removed. His attempts to erase the meaning of the 9-11 terrorists attack by re-naming it a National Day of Service is also very telling.

Barack Hussein Obma lied to us.

The morally bankrupt Obama administration is yet again going after those who put protecting Americans first. “After months of consideration,” Fox News reported Monday, “Attorney General Eric Holder plans to appoint a special prosecutor to examine allegations that terror suspects were abused at the hands of their CIA interrogators.”

This is another vile chapter in the still-young Obama presidency. Obama said he would not prosecute the great Americans who kept the country safe during the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Those heroic Americans kept this country so safe, in fact, that we felt free to elect a post-American, pro-jihad president.

Obama won’t let this go. Uighurs in Bermuda, CIA agents on the rack.

The hypocrisy of this administration is breathtaking, but the implications of such action are very revealing.

The bottom line is that if one only has limited energies to devote to a wide range of enormous problems, why would anyone work to make American defense efforts the enemy? Jihad is the enemy. What was done was all done in defense of this dear country. Saner men would have lined up the enemy in front of a firing squad.

Obama is angry about the treatment of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, one of the masterminds of the Sept. 11 attacks, while he is setting up our boys and girls in Afghanistan. Month after month, we are experiencing the highest number ever of deaths over there because, in Obama’s words, “victory is not the goal.”

Meanwhile, Obama has designated Sept. 11 a “National Day of Service.” Matthew Vadum reported in The American Spectator: “The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry. . . .The president signed into law a measure in April that designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service, but it’s not likely many lawmakers thought this meant that day was going to be turned into a celebration of ethanol, carbon emission controls, and radical community organizing.”

Also on Sept. 11, Obama plans to proclaim the creation of his mandatory “civilian community service corps” — an organization that looks ominous at best: why do we need a stateside army? And is it even constitutional to have one — if anyone even cares about the Constitution anymore?

Sept. 11, what should be a somber day of mourning and reflection (on how the hell we got here), will be the day when Obama — in a celebratory mode — makes his big announcement. The whole thing is depraved.

One has to ask: why did this man run for president? The knee jerk reaction to such a question is that a man (or woman) runs for president because he loves America. It is becoming increasingly clear that Obama ran for president because he hates America and wants very much to indict it.

“There is also no question,” Obama said, “that Guantanamo set back the moral authority that is America’s strongest currency in the world.” I disagree. America going on a witch hunt and prosecuting those that kept this country safe sets back our moral authority. America turning her back on the jihad against women, Christian, Jews, and non-believers has set back America’s moral authority. America electing a radical for a president has set back America’s moral authority.

America electing an America-hater for president vanquished our moral authority.

Want proof? You can find it in the release of Islamic terrorist Abdel Basset al-Megrahi. Evil is unleashed in a world where good has decided to sit out the Islam’s war on the West. Remember, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was so intimidated by President George W. Bush, he voluntarily turned over his WMD. I had my issues with Bush when he lost his mojo and caved to the left in his second term, but one thing is for certain: Abdel Basset al-Megrahi would never have been released with a patriot in the White House. Abdel Basset al-Megrahi would never have been released on the first day of Ramadan without a pro-jihad president in the White House. The chaos from the anti-American presidency has not even begun.

Fasten your seat belts.

The man will never stop punishing America for electing him. We will pay with everything good and decent.

Obama is punishing America.
