RUSH: This is FoxNews.com: ‘Family members of people killed on September 11, 2001, and in other terror attacks say they are outraged by President Obama’s draft order calling for the suspension of war crimes trials of prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay. ‘To me it’s beyond comprehension that they would take the side of the terrorists,’ said Peter Gadiel, whose son, James, was killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11. ‘Many of these people have been released and been right back killing, right back at their terrorist work again.” Look, I have a friend, a dear friend who lost a son on 9/11, voted for Obama. Thought he was smart, didn’t like McCain, thought he was very intelligent and so forth. I haven’t talked to him. I don’t know what he thinks after hearing this today, but I do know that one of the things that infuriated him the most during the Bush years was that he didn’t see enough action to go get the people actually responsible for this, and when we finally got Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Ramzi Bin al -Shibh and got the truth out of him, he was happy, he didn’t care what techniques were necessary to be used.
These people, these 9/11 families, you know, Obama says we need to sacrifice. They have sacrificed, wouldn’t you say? 9/11 families have sacrificed. But here we are in a new era of responsibility. Obama will have to explain to these people who have lost so much, and who have sacrificed so much, why he is suspending the trials. I’ll tell you what’s chiseled, grief. Grief is chiseled in the memories of these 9/11 families. Bush was a leader who dedicated his presidency to bringing these people to justice. Now it’s all come to a shocking halt. Elections have consequences. So do actions. This is a new experience for President Obama. People outraged by something that he is doing, people who have sacrificed.
