Fox Shows Photos Of Muslim Men: ‘Would You Want A Guy Like This Living In Your Backyard?

Since President Obama’s announcement last week that he would shut down the Guantanamo Bay detention center within one year, Fox News has done its best to frighten its viewers about the rule:

SEAN HANNITY: That’s somewhat frightening, you’re going to close Guantanamo Bay, you don’t know what’s going to happen, you don’t know where you’re going to put these people. [1/23/09]

GLENN BECK: Somebody told me that if this goes through and we put 200 people into this system, that it will shut down our justice system. Our justice system just won’t be able to do it.[1/20/09]

BRIAN KILMEADE: You’re talking about the worst of the Taliban, the worst of al Qaeda, and we have to let them go, give them trials? Why do we need to do this and compromise the CIA and our intelligence bureau — a lot of the intelligence was built on these guys, was done using our clandestine operations. So we have to expose that for these trials? [1/22/09]

Rep. Jack Murtha (D-PA) said last week that the U.S. could hold the detainees in federal prisons, just like we hold thousands of other dangerous inmates. This morning, Fox and Friends responded by sending a reporter to Murtha’s district to flash photos of suspected terrorists — their only identification being Muslim headgear — and ask residents, “Would you want a guy like this living in your backyard?”

I just really don't understand the thought process behind believing its ok to hide this sort of "intelligence" in the name of security. If there were a shred of credible ANYTHING they would easily be able to parade it back and forth. But they clearly couldn't even make up enough stuff to make any sort of a hearing/trial look real.

I have to wonder what these people know. Why have "they" tried so damn hard to keep some of these people from ever speaking to anyone again? And then, why keep them alive? They kill people constantly in the name of national security, why are these people still alive? :shock:

Good question, lefty. For propaganda purposes, the government wants and needs them to remain nameless and faceless. They're much more easily used for fear-mongering and propaganda as long as they don't have identities. Now they're just "terrorists," much like Native Americans were known as "savages" to the people who wanted to take their land. Somehow it makes what is done to them more acceptable if they're not identified.

I doubt the cases would hold up in a proper federal court.
