Barack Obama has written two books. This week, both were declared security risks by the FBI and they are not permitted as appropriate reading material for prisoners at the Supermax prison. http://www.wilx.com/home/headlines/50416652.html
Recently, there's been a debate raging about whether or not to turn terrorists from Guantanamo Bay into the streets of the United States. One of the governments arguments is that we can put them into our Supermax prison. That nobody has ever escaped from there. For the sake of argument, let's say that I accept that reasoning and don't worry about it any longer. After all, government gets what it wants. But wait. If it's such a secure prison, why are they banning anything at the prison? How dangerous could words in a book be? If they aren't going to permit the most secure prisoners in the world to read books because they consider them threats to our national security, just how dangerous are these books?
This all brings another question. If our current President has written something that is deemed to be a threat to national security, shouldn't we be concerned that he is now the President? Is our current President a threat to national security?
If we now have to worry about prisoners at the Supermax prison reading radical material, what about the people that haven't yet been caught? Could these books be used as a recruiting tool for terrorists? Or worse, ARE his books currently being used to recruit future terrorists?
Maybe we should be happy that Obama is staring at 16 year old girls in other countries as they walk by. Any distraction for him, distracts his moving this country deeper into socialism.
