Three Laws Obama Violated by Releasing Top Taliban Terrorists, in Escalating Importance
When Obama traded five top terrorists selected by the Taliban for a deserter who might have defected, he arrogantly ignored a law requiring Congress to be given 30-day notice. But that isn’t the only law he violated. It is against the law to provide material assistance to a terrorist organization. Andrew Napolitano makes an excellent case for prosecution:
Megan Kelly’s assertion that Obama didn’t violate the law because he didn’t know that releasing their most prized personnel would assist terrorists takes Fair & Balanced attempts to give the other side even when there is no other side to the last extreme of absurdity. For Obama to claim that he didn’t know this would help terrorists would be the equivalent of pulling the pin out of a hand grenade, throwing it into a nursery school, then claiming you didn’t know it would go off.
Obviously the Taliban would not have requested these five if they were not expected to return to playing key roles in terrorist activities. If we still took rule of law seriously in this country, the case against Obama for providing material assistance to a terrorist organization would be a slam dunk.
This brings us to another law that was violated. Reintroducing the evidently forgotten US Code Title 18, Chapter 115, :§ 2381 — Treason:
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
If Obama provided material assistance to terrorists with whom the USA is currently at war, it is impossible to deny that he also committed treason. He should be removed from office at once, be tried, and if found guilty be subjected to appropriate punishment as described above.
If we let treason by the President of the United States slide, this country is finished.
