K I'll give it a shot! I'm only going to type the stuff he says not the stuff she says!
"This is clipped a lot, he says these things but they are very clipped .......
Obama: Our government made a series of hasty decisions, poorly planned haphazard approach, too often we set those principles aside as luxuries we
could no longer afford, our government made decisions based on fear instead of foresight, the decisions that we established over the last 8 years have
established an ad-hock legal approach for fighting terrorism that was neither effective or sustainable"
then she talks .... and he says this
"There may be a a number of people who can not be prosecuted for past crimes, in some cases because evidence may be tainted, but who non the less
pose a threat to the security of the United States, Al-Qaeda terrorist and their affiliates are at war with the United States, and those that we
capture like other prisoners of war must be prevented from attacking us again, but we must do so with an abiding confidence in the rule of law, our
government was doing thing that undermine the rule of law, to ensure they are in line with the rule of law, my administration has begun to reshape
the standards that apply to make sure they align with the rule of law, we must have clear, defensible and lawful standards for those who fall into
this category, we must have a thorough process of periodic review, so that any process of prolonged detention is carefully evaluated and justified,
our goal is to construct a legitimate legal framework for the remaining Guantanamo detainees, that can not be transferred, our goal is not to avoid a
legitimate legal framework, in our constitution system prolonged detention should not be the decision of one any man if and when we determine the
United States must hold individuals to keep them from carrying out an act of war we will do so with a system that involves a judicial and
congressional oversight, and so going forward my administration will work with congress to develop an appropriate legal regime so that our efforts are
consistent with our values and our constitution,"
she talks again then he says this:
"Right now in distant training camps in crowded cities there are people plotting to take American lives, that will be the case a year from now, five
years from now and in all probability 10 years from now."
and that's all!!!
whew that was harder than I thought it would be!!! that it that's all he said, but after typing all that out it seems even worse.
