The US government wants to take over a productive private all-American company – Apple – but they won’t interfere with contracts given to Al-Qaeda operatives. Why? Wait for it…because they don’t want to mess with their ‘due process rights.’
You can’t make this stuff up.
The US Army was given a report by the Special Inspector General John Sopko asking the Army to dump 43 contractors who are tied to Al-Qaeda but the Army pencil pushers will not! Others have been pleading with the Army as well, including the chief watchdog for Afghanistan reconstruction, but the Army is emphatic – they will not interfere with the insurgent contractors’ ‘due process rights.’
Due process rights? Due process rights? Those are reserved for citizens, for trials, for firings, not for Al-Qaeda operatives!
Your tax money is going to Al-Qaeda!
Don’t think that these terrorists groups are ‘affiliates’ or ‘offshoots’ by the way. They are ALL the same people and they want to kill us.
In a scathing passage from his report to Congress, Sopko said that the Army should suspend or debar 43 contractors because they are connected to the Afghan insurgency (insurgency is the PC word for terrorists), including ‘supporters of the Taliban, the Haqqani network, and Al-Qaeda.’
The Army rejected Sopko’s request.
According to Fox News, Sopko said the Army’s position is, ‘The Army Suspension and Debarment Office appears to believe that suspension or debarment of these individuals and companies would be a violation of their due process rights if based on classified information or if based on findings by the Department of Commerce.’
They want more evidence! They want a ‘preponderance’ of the evidence to show they are tied to terrorist groups for an ARMY contract!
The IG said he did indeed send detailed supporting evidence that the contractors are providing material support to the enemy.
This isn’t a trial!
They can’t find contractors that aren’t suspected of or proven to be vile terrorists?
We have a global terror alert, are flying our people out of Yemen, closed 19 embassies in a large swath of the world, bombed Yemen this morning, are awaiting some type of Holocaust against us, and they are giving DUE PROCESS RIGHTS TO INSURGENTS!
The IG said in his report that ‘They may be enemies of the United States, but that is not enough to keep them from getting government contracts.’
Sopko added this is ‘legally wrong’ and ‘contrary’ to good policy and national security goals.
“I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack, and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract,” Sopko wrote in a letter attached to the report, according to Fox News.
We have military risking their lives to fight these villains and our Army is supplying them with the funds to do it.
