You see union thugs in the news causing trouble and acting like morons. These people tend to say they’re working for the good of the people, when they selfish buggers are just lining their own pockets while claiming to be for the little guy. I saw this on Fox News and thought it was so funny! Read the following article from FoxNews.com. Continue reading
From the AP.
An Iraqi court has rejected a request to send a terror commander to the United States for trial, a decision that apparently ends the Obama administration’s efforts to prosecute the Lebanese Hezbollah figure held in Iraq for the 2007 killings of five American soldiers.
The U.S. believes Ali Mussa Daqduq is a top threat to Americans in the Mideast, and had asked Baghdad to extradite him even before two Iraqi courts found him not guilty of masterminding the 2007 raid on an American military base in the holy Shiite city of Karbala.
But the July 30 decision by the Iraqi central criminal court, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, ordered that Daqduq be freed immediately. It also makes it clear that Iraq believes the legal case against Hezbollah commander is over.
“It is not possible to hand him over because the charges were dropped in the same case,” the three-judge panel ruled. “Therefore, the court decided to reject the request to hand over the Lebanese defendant Ali Mussa Daqduq to the U.S. judiciary authorities and to release him immediately.”
The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad declined to comment Thursday and referred questions about the case to Washington.
So, again… why? Why do we keep trying to deal with these people? They’re devious, dishonest, and treacherous. Each new administration thinks they have it figured out and their way will work. Meanwhile, the Middle East looks at us and thinks, “hey, Haji, look. Here comes another one we can screw with!”
