Watched -- what are things that the President Obama has said he's not -- in a different war -- al-Qaeda is on the run now when he said that I thought.
Is that a new policy is al-Qaeda on the run what reaction to the president's speech yesterday.
Well I think it.
Democrats are sort of saying well this.
Finally we're getting over this and the president is gonna get right with -- from the left on drones in Guantanamo.
I think Republicans a little more skeptical that we won in in light of recent events.
However I don't think anywhere in the country there's a lot of enthusiasm for staying in Afghanistan so I think that probably is a need to reposition American assets.
You know -- with England and from the Boston mass Massachusetts is on and as we keep reading more about these factions and you seem to come here get on welfare hate America and then kill Americans.
Would probably do need -- certain redeployment.
Yeah yeah Julie -- -- well.
You know I for one think it's kind of overdue because I I've -- trouble for very long time for the indefinite detention.
-- charges of of people lean ground up without any evidence presented -- -- it's anybody else -- to what -- -- wrong.
I feel the word terrorism is strange animal because have you ever defeat right towards parity at terrorist -- we've -- terrorists acts there.
Hundreds of -- -- we'll continue to have.
So I'm not sure it never have a -- to the war in -- do you think it is both mentally unhealthy for this country and financially healthy and then and every other sense.
To be a perpetual state of war and I think -- can write -- note because.
That's not who we are because of new -- give the president extraordinary -- powers.
That's not who we are those are extraordinary Paris for -- reason when it started with with the Bush Administration during and after 9/11 that we actually.
We're debating about whether or not to go into Iraq because that's that it -- seemed as if it was a preemptive strike which is something Americans just didn't do.
It seems that change then he agree with that or not.
Well Iraq he was never part of the war in terror rocked me as a diversion from the -- been -- since I was never a fan of the Iraq War but what it did allow the president to do both.
The former President George Bush and current president is it gave him.
Both of them.
Powers that are really think there are not the kind of powers that are founders want any presents have a not a monarchy -- actually not than Terry and yeah.
Regime and I think now that.
This president acknowledged that perhaps there was over reach there -- there today she would be over -- this continued and that's -- that it.
I opposed the Iraq War time and and night part part because I felt that it was nation building as opposed to -- -- again and it imposed a kind of strange dichotomy in America think on the one hand.
-- most movies fully understood that terrorists are evil and have to be killed because they're gonna kill us.
And on the other hand we are also saying but as well -- -- And of course all people need is to need a new government in the -- like lessons on to America as a very -- anyway.
So that didn't work out too well -- what we're left with the is just unbelievable people who -- who videotaped themselves packing them we're told Canada and England.
That they're free the guy was living was so free get free speech you can go on television and I wondered Andy is getting welfare.
Anyway until these people the -- facility review need to be clear if there are evil rotten -- Don't look -- your country.
Killed my -- to but -- but by all means don't put your own fist in the air -- there there you know the other end of their own craziness.
And that's -- -- -- yeah -- so so we need to -- -- -- fight terrorism.
Isn't though that the because there have been national boundaries where we can find the complaint to and say that's the -- people where they are this is not be what.
Those are kind of starting to sort of dissipated in the sense any -- individuals that keep coming out as.
Is it really good -- to say we don't.
We're not engaged in a war on terror.
I mean is is it live what we don't we have the sense that we are terrorists I think it's okay if they were engaged in a war on terrorists.
-- -- people there trying to harm us at several different this amorphous and.
The distinction I know that sounds.
Looks like semantics but it's not semantics actually is a real distinction because if you're engaging in a war in terrorists.
-- specifically finding people that distance that want to do is harm want to kill us.
You're engaged in this amorphous war and terror that just means that I can go virtually anywhere if the president say anything Lauren -- means to do -- -- I've got no evidence to back that up and went around -- -- They're put detain her without any evidence because I -- so and that's not the American way really think that is completely contrary to our country stands for.
