Kirk Lippold, retired Commander of the USS Cole and David Katz CEO of Global Security Group were interviewed on the Glenn Beck Show on Fox, yesterday, December 30, 2009. Commander Lippold is an American hero and tells it like it is. He blasts the last three administrations. Kirk Lippold has been warning about closing Gitmo and threats from Yemen all year. This is another case of Obama not listening to military experts.
Some of the issues Commander Lippold addressed directly and succintly:
Keep Guantanamo open.
Military commissions process works.
Not criminal actions. Terrorists are enemy combatants.
This is a war on terror.
Quit making the CIA the whipping boy of this administration.
“Feb 6, 2009 – CMDR Lippold visited Fox and Friends to discuss the closure of GITMO and the decision to drop all charges on Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the terrorist responsible for the USS Cole bombing, which killed 17 American sailors. ”

Our sincere thanks to Commander Kirk Lippold for his service and especially for speaking the truth boldly.
