3 Years Ago: Obama went to court to keep a Taliban leader at Gitmo. Now he’s out.

In the Bible, James 1:8 (NIV) it states, “Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”

Well, it seems this verse is quite fitting for President Barack Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetoro and his recent release of a top Taliban official. According to the Weekly Standard, while some top Obama administration officials are downplaying threats posed by the five senior Taliban officials released from Guantanamo in the prisoner exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, not long ago the administration went to court to prevent one of those men from going free.

In a decision on May 31, 2011, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, ruled in favor of the government–and “Respondent Barack Obama”–in its effort to keep Khairulla Khairkhwa in detention. That decision, once classified “Secret,” has since been declassified and released.

Oops, I guess Obama had a “Kerry” moment of voting for it right before he voted against it — unstable indeed.
