Terrorist Scumbag Celebrated Attack

After killing eight people in a truck attack Tuesday in lower Manhattan, Uzbekistan immigrant Sayfullo Saipov is said to have asked for an Islamic State group flag to put in his hospital room in Bellevue.

Clearly, according to the New York Post report, the terrorist was feeling good about what he had done in the name of the terrorist organization.

The mood in the room, however, is probably a lot less celebratory now that it seems President Donald Trump wants to see if he can send Saipov to the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

According to NBC News, the president told reporters Wednesday that Gitmo was certainly a potential destination for Saipov.

“I would certainly consider that,” Trump said when asked about the possibility. “Send him to Gitmo — I would certainly consider that, yes.”

Sending Saipov to Gitmo would be a drastic move, as these things go — or, as the president might phrase it, yuge.

As The New York Times notes, no individual who has committed an attack on U.S. soil has been sent to Guantanamo Bay and nobody has been sent there, period, since 2008. At the very least, it would set off what the “paper of record” termed “novel legal questions,” which is (for The Times) rather atypical understatement in an issue involving President Trump.

Liberals, as liberals predictably do when Guantanamo Bay is mentioned, lost their cookies over the whole thing.

And The Times, of course, found someone to criticize Trump for it.

“The FBI would lose its mind” if Saipov were transferred to Gitmo, Joshua A. Geltzer, a former Justice Department attorney and senior director for counterterrorism at the National Security Council in the Obama White House, told the Gray Lady. “Why would (Defense Secretary James) Mattis want this headache?”

There is another alternative: Holding Saipov in a military prison as an enemy combatant. That move was used by George W. Bush’s administration with two terror suspects on U.S. soil, although the Supreme Court has never ruled on the legality of it.

In such a situation, an individual like Saipov could be held indefinitely without charges or access to legal counsel while he was interrogated, The Times noted.

On Wednesday, Saipov was charged in federal court with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization and one count of violence and destruction of motor vehicles, according to ABC News.

That seemed to indicate that the Trump administration would not be taking the enemy combatant route, something that angered South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, who said the Trump administration had made a “huge mistake.”

“It appears the Trump administration is continuing the Obama policy of criminalizing the War on Terror by not declaring Sayfullo Saipov an enemy combatant,” Graham said in a news release later that evening.

“It’s ridiculous to believe that one day of interviews in a hospital tells us all we need to know about Saipov’s terrorist ties Now that he’s all lawyered up, that will likely be the end of intelligence gathering except through plea bargaining … Given the facts, any first-year law school student could obtain a conviction in court. I am more concern about intelligence gathering to help win a war. That is a process that takes time — time which is now lost.”

Graham told a news conference that Saipov should have been held as an enemy combatant for at least 30 days rather than being given a Miranda warning and a lawyer. However, authorities said Saipov waived his Miranda rights and gave them significant details of the attack.

While authorities claim that Saipov is a lone actor, the New York Daily News raised some alarm when it was revealed his attack followed “almost to the letter” a published Islamic State group manual on how to carry out a terror attack with a truck.

If the Trump administration decided it wanted to take a closer look at Saipov’s terror ties, either sending him to Gitmo or holding him as an enemy combatant would be two ways of doing it. In a Wednesday news briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Saipov’s fate was undecided, but that “I believe we would consider this person to be an enemy combatant.”

That means the party could very soon be over for Saipov. While sending him to Gitmo would certainly raise “novel legal questions,” as The Times put it, it would also send a discomfiting message to would-be terrorists as to what their fates might entail. It’s certainly a message that the Obama administration would never send — which is part of the point, one guesses, for President Trump.

The question for the Trump administration then becomes whether such a drastic measure would be worth it, both when it comes to legal challenges and political capital.

    THIS ASS HOLE NEEDS. TO BE GIVEN THE DEATH PENALTY. BUT A LONG STRETCHED OUT DEATH SLOW VERY SLOW. THAT HE WILL TAKE WITH HIM AND HE WOULD WISH HE COULD FORGET. HE MURDERED INNOCENT PEOPLE. AND ITS NOT RIGHT TO SEND HIM TO PRISON AND SURVIVE WHEN THOSE HE HIT DIED. THIS COUNTRY NEEDS TO STAND UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING. AND DEATH FOR HIS SENTENCE IS THE ONLY RIGHTFUL THING TO DO. IN OLD DAYS THEY WOULD NOT SEE ANOTHER DAY WHEN FOUND BY THE SHERIFF AND DEPUTYS. HAD IT BEEN MY KIDS THERE WOULD HAVE BIEEN ANOTHER OSWALD. BUT WITH OTHERS STANDING BEHIND ME TOO. JUDGES. DO THE RIGHT THING. THATS WHAT YOUR THERE FOR. WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL STAND BEHIND YOU TO THE. END

    The proper thing to do is somebody go into his hospital room put a 44 to his temple and pull the trigger.

      Well, that may wake up the other patients. 🙂

        A .22 Hollow Point bullet from a .22 LR Semi Auto with a suppressor attached would be better with the round coated in Rattle Snake Venom into his head, even if the Bullet didn’t kill him out right the Snake Venom would just a bit more slowly.

        • glock 19 fan

          Yes! Like the “scratch pistols” that the OSS used in Europe during the unpleasantness known as WW2. Those were Olympic type shooting .22 Short and the sound was somewhat comparable to striking a kitchen match. Other patients would sleep soundly.

          • Sarge McVey

            Or use a .22 LR subsonic in Semi-Auto with a suppressor that is even quieter soaked in Snake Venom, I know I have a very inventive and nasty mind, but he that is why I have survived as long as I have. I know all of the dirty trick that can be used and some of my own inventive mind.

            And if the villain is a “muzzie” then pig fat will do. Lard or bacon grease, whichever is handy. Tell them that they will ***not*** meet Allah.

      • ARJAY

        Use a “silencer”!

        HAHAHAHAHAHA!! (sorry, couldn’t help myself.)

    • Charles

      Aww, shucks, just put him on a cargo plane to Gitmo. With the back door open. And hope he doesn’t get pushed out at 35,000 feet up. Maybe chained to the Podesta brothers and Hillary.

    Uphold the constitution, treason is cut and dried, death penalty only or run over by a home depot truck until dead. Everyone wants civil rights based on the constitution, them by golly uphold them

    apparently, the will of the people for justice and the rule of law mean nothing to the politicians, especially the leftists. This Islamic Pos is an enemy combatant and should be dealt as such. My other comment regards the absurd miscarriage of justice with the Bergdahl case, he is a deserter who got soldiers killed in the search for him, desertion in war time was punished by firing squad and this pos gets away with a very ridiculous sentence, the military judge should be brought up to par on the legal aspects of desertion and misconduct before the enemy. This liberal leftist attitude towards justice is destroying our system,we do not have a justice system, just a feel good slap on the wrist and that is it.
