HOMELAND SECURITY CHAIRMAN BALL: PRESIDENT OBAMA, THE ENEMY FROM WITHIN?

 

    Brewster, N.Y. – 06/05/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, issued the following statement:

    “The image of an American President cheerfully hugging an anti-American, terror sympathizer, in the Rose Garden, is enough to make good Americans cry. Three days before Robert Bergdahl stood at the White House with President Obama, he tweeted, ‘God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen.’ Let’s be perfectly clear, the White House Staff knew this history and more. Furthermore, the President certainly knew these details, as he stood by this terror sympathizer and reporting now indicates that the President knew a whole lot more. The White House orchestrated all of this as news broke that the President had exchanged 5 Taliban terrorists, to be free to strike again against innocent Americans. If it becomes certain that this ex service member was an American deserter with American blood on his hands, and this President did indeed exchange 5 Taliban terrorists for his head, than one thing is clear: President Obama is the enemy from within. I call on my fellow Americans in New York and beyond to push their Congressional representatives to use all legal means available to hold this failed President accountable. This dangerous precedent was made without Congressional approval and sets a new low in negotiating with terrorists. We can only hope that this President purposefully weakened our homeland security simply to expedite the political agenda of shutting down ‘Gitmo,’ for the alternative is an evil President manipulating executive authority to put innocent Americans at risk. God bless America and may true patriots and decent elected officials, unite across party lines, to hold this reckless President completely accountable,” said Senator Greg Ball.
