GUANTANAMO “ENEMY COMBATANTS” !!!
Would you like to have any of these men living in your community? Near your family? Ramzi Bin al-Shibh, who al Qaeda’s military commander called a “highly professional jihadist”
Walid Bin Attash, who survived a suicide bombing attack against a U.S. embassy in Africa
Gouled Hassan Dourad, leader of the al Qaeda terrorist cell in Djibouti
With President Obama’s Executive Order closing the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, the very real possibility exists that ruthless, cold-blooded terrorists like these will be moved to facilities in the continental United States. Why? Because they are so dangerous no other countries want them!!
There is also discussion in Washington about releasing some of the detainees on American soil – and then providing them tax-paid public assistance benefits!!
WE’RE SURE YOU AGREE – THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!!
Opposition is building to these proposals, both in Congress and at the grassroots. We need you to take action TODAY to let our elected officials know that we OPPOSE transferring or releasing any of the Guantanamo detainees into America.
ACTION ITEM #1
Click here to sign our petition to Congress entitled:
“We Oppose the Release of ANY Guantanamo Facility Detainee into the United States and Providing Any Tax-Paid Public Benefits to Any Detainee”
Please sign this petition right away, and then follow the directions at the bottom of the petition to forward it to everyone you know! We need to get as many people as possible to sign this petition right away!
It only takes a few moments to add your name to our petition and then forward it on to your friends and family. They need to know there are plans being discussed in Washington to transfer and even release many of these dangerous enemy combatants on to American soil. Give them the chance to add their voices to yours by forwarding our petition on to them as soon as you have signed it.
Lisa Piraneo, our Director of Government Relations, will then deliver this petition to the appropriate congressional leaders.
ACTION ITEM #2
Contact your U.S. Representative and urge him or her to support both of these bills:
H.R. 2294, the “Keep Terrorists Out of America Act.” This bill would require that no detainee could be released or transferred to a state without the approval of that state’s governor or legislature.
H.R. 2338, the “No Welfare for Terrorists Act.” This bill would prohibit any Guantanamo detainee released into the United States from receiving any federal, state or local public benefits.
You can contact your U.S. Representative by phone, fax or email. Please click here to get contact information for your Representative.
Together we can protect our communities from these enemies of America and put a stop to the absurdity of rewarding terrorism with the doling out of tax-paid public benefits. A petition with tens of thousands of names, and thousands of calls, faxes and emails, will send an unmistakably loud and clear message to Congress. So please ACT today!!
