National Security: Federal law prohibits any person – repeat, any person – from providing material assistance to terrorists, including human assets. But that’s what the president did in releasing five Taliban commanders.
When iconic interviewer David Frost asked former President Nixon about the legality of his actions in the Watergate affair, Nixon said “when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal.”
That’s an attitude seemingly shared by the current occupant of the Oval Office.
As former congressman and Afghanistan veteran Allen West points out, President Obama signed into law only months ago the National Defense Authorization Act, which makes it a crime to offer or provide any material support to terrorist groups. It makes no exception as to who and under which circumstances.
The Taliban is considered a non-state terrorist group to which Obama has returned five of the worst terrorists held at Guantanamo. They are not foot soldiers and this exchange was not at the end of a war, when prisoner swaps often happen. They are four-star general equivalents who will return to the battlefield to target and kill Americans again. If that’s not material assistance, what is?
“Is there the possibility of some of them trying to return to activities that are detrimental to us? Absolutely,” Obama said during a news conference in Poland.
But fear not, he said, because “we will be keeping eyes on them.” Oh, good, we can always risk more American lives on top of those already lost capturing them the first time.
“This is aiding and abetting the enemy, which goes along with the collusion of this administration with Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations and supplying weapons and arms to Islamists,” West wrote in the Washington Post.
Qatar, where the terrorists are supposed to spend a year working on their tan, has backed the Muslim Brotherhood movement that is banned in most Gulf states.
“We have a federal statute which makes it a felony to provide material assistance to any terrorist organization,” said Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano in support of West’s opinion. “It could be money, maps, professional services, any asset whatsoever, include human assets.”
The likelihood that the five terrorists will rejoin the campaign against the U.S. constitutes material support, Napolitano argues. We agree. The Taliban is not an organization you retire from. Abandon jihad and your life is forfeited. Taliban terrorists are unlikely to switch careers and become lawyers or plumbers.

The material mentions neo-Nazis, the KKK and other white supremacist organizations. Pictures are shown on various slides of people in Klan attire and Nazi flags. The significance of gang tattoos, and racist acronyms and the significance of numbers were also discussed.
While the material on gangs and racist organizations is similar to what one might receive from a local police briefing on gang issues, after teaching on neo-Nazis in the military such as Timothy McVeigh, the material makes an amazing link.
A slide titled “Religious Extremism” lists multiple organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida, Hamas, the Nation of Islam, the Ku Klux Klan and the Christian Identity movement as examples of extremist groups.
However, the first group on the list is evangelical Christianity. Catholicism and ultra-orthodox Judaism are also on the list of religious extremist organizations.
See what Christian really is, in “Body of Divinity: The Sum and Substance of the Christian Religion.”
Following the briefing, one of the soldiers who attended the presentation and describes himself as an evangelical told the trainer he was offended at the material and asked for a copy of the briefing. After receiving a copy, he forwarded the material to Crews.
The material describes religious extremism as those having beliefs, attitudes, feelings or actions that are “far removed from the ordinary.” It then elaborates by saying that “every religion has some followers that believe that their beliefs, customs and traditions are the only ‘right way’ and that all others practicing their faith the ‘wrong way.’”
Crews said it is astounding that soldiers were taught that a key foundation of the Christian faith is now considered extreme and compared to those who want to implement Shariah law.
“The idea of salvation being exclusively through Christ is a key doctrine of the Christian faith,” Crews said. “It is amazing that the trainer felt they had the authority and right to list evangelical Christian, Catholics and orthodox Jews alongside groups like the Muslim Brotherhood.”
