Allen West Says We Need to Focus on Economy, Sends Letter to Obama About Convicted Murderers
Congressman Allen West wants us to focus.
West's beef starts with a suspected insurgent named Ali Musa Daqduq, who was released by Iraqi officials earlier this month after being turned over to them by American forces late last year. Daqduq has extensive ties with terrorist groups, but the Obama administration gave him to the Iraqi judicial system during the wind-down of the Iraq War rather than sending him to Guantanamo Bay. It's been a contentious issue for a while, though not one that has any effect on that United States economy West says we're supposed to care so much about.
"Mistakes in the fog of war"? They executed people. When Obama said he supported gay marriage, West called it it "irrelevant pandering" that seeks to distract from the economy. What is it when West starts campaigning for leniency for killers? And if he's so concerned about the economy, why no mention of it when he starts spamming the Oval Office?
