Islamic terrorism is a subject that leaves Obama cold. But climate change and gay rights inspire grave focus. According to his secretary of state, climate change is possibly the greatest threat America faces. “In a sense, climate change can now be considered another weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction,” John Kerry has said. Releasing terrorists poses a risk the Obama administration is willing to entertain and tolerate, even as it argues that climate change represents far too great a risk for passivity. Obama is more certain of the danger of changing weather than that of freed jihadists.

Catch and Release

The implications of Obama’s terrorism policy.
By 6.18.14

President Obama justified his release of the Taliban’s top terrorists on among other curious grounds that U.S. forces could just capture them again should they pose a risk to U.S. interests and security in the future. It doesn’t seem to bother Obama that such a careless policy means burdening soldiers with the demoralizing and exceedingly dangerous task of having to fight the same enemy multiple times.

Obama considers furor over a deliberate practice of giving terrorists a fresh chance to kill Americans a contrived “controversy.” “This is what happens at the end of wars,” he casually says. Never mind that the terrorists have no intention of joining him in his deluded declaration.
