  • OF THE UNITED STATES AND U.S. CITIZENS. AND THE PRESIDENT OF
  • 00:02:04.090 --> 00:02:08.170
  • THE UNITED STATES DETERMINES THAT THIS INDIVIDUAL IS NOT A
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:11.230
  • THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES OR TO OUR ALLIES IN THE REGION.
  • 00:02:11.240 --> 00:02:15.200
  • THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS. TEN MORE OF THESE TODAY. THEY ARE NOT
  • 00:02:15.210 --> 00:02:19.100
  • RELEASING THE NAMES OF THOSE GITMO DETAINEES TODAY. THIS IS
  • 00:02:19.110 --> 00:02:23.040

  • THIS. WE SEND THEM TO OMAN, WE SEND THEM TO YEMEN, SEND THEM TO
  • 00:02:27.010 --> 00:02:30.030
  • SAUDI ARABIA. WE'RE NOT FOLLOWING ANY OF THESE GUYS. WE
  • 00:02:30.040 --> 00:02:32.130
  • KIND OF BARELY TRACK THEM. THEY'RE HELD IN CUSTODY, WHAT IS
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:36.030
  • IT, THAN, 1 YEAR? NOT IN CUSTODY, BUT THEY'RE MONITORED.
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:39.000
  • THAN BENNETT: IT DEPENDS ON THE NEGOTIATIONS BUT BY AND LARGE
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:40.270
  • THOSE COUNTRIES HAVE FAILED TO MONITOR AND THEY RETURN TO THE
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:42.220
  • BATTLE FIELD. -SO JORDAN, VERY QUICKLY HERE, HE'S JUST TRYING
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:46.070
  • TO EMPTY OUT GITMO. I MEAN, THAT'S WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:47.250
  • TRYING TO DO. JORDAN SEKULOW: YEAH, ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I MEAN,
  • 00:02:47.260 --> 00:02:49.270
  • THIS IS A SITUATION WHERE IF HE CAN'T DO AN ACTUAL CLOSURE OF
  • 00:02:49.280 --> 00:02:54.030
  • GITMO, HE CAN DEFACTO CLOSE GITMO BY HAVING THESE RELEASES
  • 00:02:54.040 --> 00:02:59.050
  • MOVE FORWARD AND SO HE'S TRYING TO CLEAR THEM OUT AS QUICKLY AS
  • 00:02:59.060 --> 00:03:01.240
  • HE CAN. -HIS NAME IS MUHAMMED ABUDL RAHMAN AL SHUMRANI. THIS
  • 00:03:01.250 --> 00:03:06.240
  • IS WHAT HE SAID WHEN HE WAS FIRST BROUGHT IN, THIS IS THE
  • 00:03:06.250 --> 00:03:10.140
  • POSITIONS HE ADVOCATED, THIS WAS FROM HIS FILE DATED OCTOBER 14,
  • 00:03:10.150 --> 00:03:14.090
  • 2007: WHEN I GET OUT OF HERE I WILL GO TO IRAG AND AFGHANISTAN
  • 00:03:14.100 --> 00:03:17.240
  • AND KILL AS MANY AMERICANS AS I CAN, THEN I WILL COME HERE AND
  • 00:03:17.250 --> 00:03:20.140
  • KILL MORE AMERICANS. THEN HE ALSO SAID, I LOVE OSAMA BIN
  • 00:03:20.150 --> 00:03:23.190
  • LADEN AND OMAR AND IF I EVER GET OUT OF GUANTANAMO, I WILL GO
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:27.050
  • BACK TO FIGHT THE AMERICANS AND KILL AS MANY AS I CAN. DETAINEE
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:30.030
  • STATED THAT HE HATED ALL AMERICANS, WILL SEEK REVENGE IF
  • 00:03:30.040 --> 00:03:32.220
  • EVER RELEASED FROM GITMO. THEN HE SAID THAT IF HE RELEASED HE
  • 00:03:32.230 --> 00:03:36.250
  • WOULD AGAIN PARTICIPATE IN JIHAD AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF ISLAM TO
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:39.290
  • INCLUDE THE UNITED STATES. THE DETAINEE IS PROUD OF WHAT HE'S
  • 00:03:40.000 --> 00:03:42.240
  • DONE AND WHAT HE IS WILLING TO DO AND HE WILL DO ANYTHING TO
  • 00:03:42.250 --> 00:03:46.000
  • FIGHT AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF ISLAM. NOW WHAT HE DID WAS KILL
  • 00:03:46.010 --> 00:03:48.020
  • AMERICANS, PAST, SAYS HE WILL DO IT NOW. WE'VE NOW RELEASED HIM
  • 00:03:48.030 --> 00:03:53.060
  • AND HE'S IN OMAN AND HE WILL END UP, AS MOST OF THESE GUYS DO,
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:57.090
  • RETURNING TO THE BATTLE FIELD AS LEADERS. THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENED.
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:04:01.000
  • AT THE SAME TIME THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES DOESN'T
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:04.140
  • MENTION IN THE STATE OF THE UNION MESSAGE AT ALL THAT THE
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:07.140
  • IRANIANS DETAINED AND CAPTURED 10 OF OUR SOLDIERS OVERNIGHT AND
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:11.120
  • WE CONSIDER IT A VICTORY THAT THEY LET HIM OUT AND WE'RE THE
  • 00:04:11.130 --> 00:04:14.150
  • UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE AHEAD TO DISCUSS
  • 00:04:14.160 --> 00:04:17.020
  • INCLUDING THE LEGAL RAMIFICATIONS OF WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:04:17.030 --> 00:04:20.040
  • AT BOTH GITMO AND IRAN. BE BACK WITH MORE INA A MOMENT.
  • 00:04:20.050 --> 00:04:22.230
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:22.240 --> 00:04:27.250
  • JAY SEKULOW: WE'RE AMERICANS.
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:28.290
  • WE'RE PROUD OF IT. MOST OF THE PEOPLE LISTENING TO THIS
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:30.130
  • BROADCAST ARE BELIEVERS. WE'RE PROUD OF THAT TOO. WE BELIEVE
  • 00:04:30.140 --> 00:04:32.190
  • THAT GOD IS SOVEREIGN AND IN CONTROL. BUT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND
  • 00:04:32.200 --> 00:04:35.230
  • AN ADMINISTRATION THAT LET'S OUT A GUY NAMED MUHAMMAD ABDUL
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:38.240
  • RAHMAN AL SHUMRANI WHO SAYS MY GOAL IS TO KILL AMERICANS. AND
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:42.020
  • HE'S BEEN RELEASED FROM GUANTANAMO BAY. AND IF YOU THINK
  • 00:04:42.030 --> 00:04:43.270
  • I'M KIDDING YOU, FOLKS, I'M SHOWING THIS ON FACEBOOK AND
  • 00:04:43.280 --> 00:04:46.010
  • PERISCOPE RIGHT NOW. HERE'S THE DOCUMENT FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF

  • PEOPLE ARE ASKING HOW DID THIS INFORMATION COME ABOUT, NOT JUST
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:52.070
  • HE WAS RELEASED BUT THE SPECIFIC QUOTES? -IT'S A PUBLIC DOCUMENT
  • 00:04:52.080 --> 00:04:56.010
  • NOW THAT THEY RELEASED. THEY WILL NOT RELEASE, THAN, THE
  • 00:04:56.020 --> 00:05:00.050
  • OTHER 10, THOUGH. THEY'RE NOT GIVING US THE NAMES OF THE OTHER
  • 00:05:00.060 --> 00:05:02.030
  • 10. -THEY'RE NOT GIVING US THE OTHER 10 BUT HERE'S THE POINT
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:04.000
  • THAT WE NEED TO MAKE, JAY. THIS IS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:05:04.010 --> 00:05:06.230
  • ACTUALLY WAS APPROVED FOR RELEASE. THERE ARE 59 OF THESE
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:10.160
  • TERRORISTS WHO ARE WORSE THAN THIS GUY. THIS GUY WANTS TO
  • 00:05:10.170 --> 00:05:12.110
  • RETURN TO AMERICA AND KILL AMERICANS, AND WE STILL HAVE 59
  • 00:05:12.120 --> 00:05:15.060
  • AT GUANTANAMO BAY WHO ARE WORSE THAN HIM. THAT'S WHO HE WANTS TO
  • 00:05:15.070 --> 00:05:17.270
  • LET OUT NEXT. -SO, JORDAN, YOU ASK YOURSELF THIS POLITICAL
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:20.100
  • QUESTION, I MEAN, WE'RE JUST TALKING ABOUT 1 GUY HERE, WHO'S
  • 00:05:20.110 --> 00:05:22.120
  • PROBABLY NOT THE WORST. I MEAN I SUSPECT THERE'S PEOPLE MUST
  • 00:05:22.130 --> 00:05:25.230
  • WORSE THAN THIS. -THAT'S WHY GUANTANAMO BAY EXISTS IS FOR
  • 00:05:25.240 --> 00:05:28.180
  • THESE TYPES OF PEOPLE AND THESE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE SO COMMITTED
  • 00:05:28.190 --> 00:05:32.090
  • TO THIS ISLAMIC RADICALISM AND THE CAUSE THAT IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:36.290
  • IF YOU IMPRISON THEM FOR 5-10 YEARS OR LONGER, THEY ARE STILL
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:42.000
  • A SIGNIFICANT THREAT ON THE BATTLE FIELD AND SO LONG AS
  • 00:05:42.010 --> 00:05:44.230
  • WE'VE GOT TROOPS IN PLACES LIKE AFGHANISTAN, THAT'S WHY YOU'VE A
  • 00:05:44.240 --> 00:05:47.210
  • DETENTION FACILITY LIKE GUANTANAMO BAY. AND THE RELEASE
  • 00:05:47.220 --> 00:05:50.260
  • OF THESE INDIVIDUALS IN LIGHT OF WHAT'S GOING ON ALL AROUND THE
  • 00:05:50.270 --> 00:05:55.020
  • WORLD, I MEAN, 2 ISIS TERROR ATTACKS THIS WEEK IN MAJOR WORLD
  • 00:05:55.030 --> 00:05:58.160
  • CITIES, JAKARTA, INDONESIA TODAY AND YESTERDAY IN ISTANBUL. I
  • 00:05:58.170 --> 00:06:04.250
  • MEAN, WHEN YOU PUT THESE ATTACKS TOGETHER AND YOU REALIZE WE'RE
  • 00:06:04.260 --> 00:06:08.250
  • JUST SENDING MORE PEOPLE BACK TO THE BATTLE FIELD. -THAT ARE
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:11.140
  • MOTIVATED. I MEAN, IT'S NOT JUST SENDING PEOPLE BACK TO THE
  • 00:06:11.150 --> 00:06:15.140
  • BATTLEFIELD. THEY'RE MOTIVATED. WE'RE GETTING A LOT OF GOOD
  • 00:06:15.150 --> 00:06:17.090
  • COMMENTS COMING IN ON TWITTER. WE'RE ALREADY GETTING PHONES
  • 00:06:17.100 --> 00:06:19.070
  • CALLS COMING IN. LOGAN, WHAT DO WE HAVE NEXT? -WE HAVE A COUPLE
  • 00:06:19.080 --> 00:06:21.020
  • OF COMMENTS WE WANT TO ADDRESS ONE THAT JUST CAME IN. THEY SAID
  • 00:06:21.030 --> 00:06:23.080
  • IF THEY'RE BEING RELEASED, THEY'RE BEING RELEASED OUT OF
  • 00:06:23.090 --> 00:06:25.130
  • GUANTANAMO BAY, WHERE ARE THEY BEING RELEASED TO? -OMAN.
  • 00:06:25.140 --> 00:06:28.020
  • THEY'RE ALL GOING TO OMAN AT LEAST INITIALLY. NOW OMAN'S NOT
  • 00:06:28.030 --> 00:06:31.180
  • SAYING THEY'RE KEEPING THEM. THEY'RE SAYING THEY WILL, TO
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:35.070
  • HELP THEM RE-ACCLIMATE. NOW HERE'S THE PROBLEM: WE KNOW THAT
  • 00:06:35.080 --> 00:06:38.270
  • OVER 1/3 OF THESE INDIVIDUALS RETURN TO THE BATTLE FIELD.
  • 00:06:38.280 --> 00:06:41.200
  • YOU'RE BASICALLY PUTTING THEM BACK; THEY'LL REST UP AND
  • 00:06:41.210 --> 00:06:43.170
  • THEY'RE READY TO GO. SOME EARLIER THIS WEEK WENT TO SAUDI
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:45.200
  • ARABIA AND KUWAIT. THAT'S WHAT WILL JUST TOLD ME. SO THEY'RE
  • 00:06:45.210 --> 00:06:48.070
  • GOING INTO THE REGION. -DENISE ON TWITTER, SHE PUT IT'S ALL
  • 00:06:48.080 --> 00:06:52.140
  • PART OF THE LEAD BEHIND PARADIGM ARE YOU SURPRISED? -I AM NOT
  • 00:06:52.150 --> 00:06:57.210
  • SURPRISED. IT IS PART OF LEADING FROM BEHIND. BUT I THINK, THAN,
  • 00:06:57.220 --> 00:07:00.070
  • WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE, I WANT THAN AND JORDAN TO COMMENT ON
  • 00:07:00.080 --> 00:07:03.130
  • THIS THEN WE'LL TAKE SOME PHONE CALLS, IT'S DANGEROUS. IN OTHER
  • 00:07:03.140 --> 00:07:06.160
  • WORDS, THE PRESIDENT IS PUTTING, I BELIEVE THAT THIS ACT OF THE
  • 00:07:06.170 --> 00:07:08.290
  • PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES PUTS AMERICAN SOLDIERS AND
  • 00:07:09.000 --> 00:07:11.180
  • AMERICAN CITIZENS IN HARM'S WAY AGAIN. WE'RE ALREADY IN HARM'S
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:14.170
  • WAY BUT IT ESCALATES IT FOR NO REASON. -WELL, CLEARLY IT DOES.
  • 00:07:14.180 --> 00:07:17.000
  • ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT THE WORDS OF THE TERRORISTS HE
  • 00:07:17.010 --> 00:07:19.050
  • RELEASED. THE PRESIDENT HAS CHOSEN TO PUT HIS CAMPAIGN
  • 00:07:19.060 --> 00:07:21.240
  • NARRATIVE TO CLOSE GUANTANAMO BAY AHEAD OF PROTECTING THE
  • 00:07:21.250 --> 00:07:24.170
  • AMERICAN PEOPLE. PLAIN AND SIMPLE, THAT'S A TOUGH THING TO
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:26.230
  • SAY BUT THIS IS A TERRORIST WHO HAS SAID HE WANTS TO RETURN TO
  • 00:07:26.240 --> 00:07:30.230
  • THE BATTLE FIELD AND KILL AMERICANS. AND THE PRESIDENT HAS
  • 00:07:30.240 --> 00:07:33.060
  • CHOSEN HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISE INSTEAD. AND JAY, FINAL THING ON
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:36.150
  • THIS, THOSE 59 THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THAT AREN'T
  • 00:07:36.160 --> 00:07:38.160
  • ELIGIBLE TO NEGOTIATE WITH OTHER COUNTRIES. -YES. -THE ONLY
  • 00:07:38.170 --> 00:07:40.230
  • PLACE THEY CAN COME IS THE UNITED STATES AND IF THEY DO
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:42.240
  • THAT IT WILL BE BREAKING U.S. LAW. -YOU KNOW, JORDAN, YOU
  • 00:07:42.250 --> 00:07:45.200
  • TAKE A LOOK AT THAT, YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE SITUATION WITH IRAN
  • 00:07:45.210 --> 00:07:47.230
  • WHERE THEY TOOK OUR SOLDIERS CAPTIVE, WE'RE GOING TO PLAY
  • 00:07:47.240 --> 00:07:50.130
  • SOME OF THAT VIDEO DURING THE BREAKS HERE, BUT I MEAN, REALLY
  • 00:07:50.140 --> 00:07:53.040
  • OUTRAGEOUS. I MEAN, UNBELIEVABLY OUTRAGEOUS, WHAT THEY PUT OUR
  • 00:07:53.050 --> 00:07:55.150
  • SAILORS THROUGH. -IT'S, -LET ME FINISH. WHEN RONALD REAGAN
  • 00:07:55.160 --> 00:08:00.080
  • HAD A SITUATION WITH THE IRANIANS IN THE 1980S HE ENGAGED
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:05.220
  • IN WHAT WAS CALLED "OPERATION PRAYING MANTIS", ONE OF OUR
  • 00:08:05.230 --> 00:08:09.150
  • SHIPS HIT A MINE THAT WAS IN THE PERSIAN GULF AREA. IT CAUSED
  • 00:08:09.160 --> 00:08:15.130
  • SEVERE, NO SAILORS DIED BUT IT CAUSED REAL SERIOUS INJURY TO
  • 00:08:15.140 --> 00:08:20.050
  • THE SHIP AND TO INDIVIDUALS. OPERATION PRAYING MANTIS FROM
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:22.240
  • RONALD REAGAN REMAINS THE LARGEST SURFACE BATTLE ENGAGED
  • 00:08:22.250 --> 00:08:26.030
  • IN MY THE U.S. NAVY SINCE WORLD WAR II. IT WAS A DECISIVE
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:29.270
  • OUTCOME. WE TOOK DOWN NAVAL GUN SHIPS. WE LAUNCHED MILITARY FROM
  • 00:08:29.280 --> 00:08:34.140
  • THE U.S.S. ENTERPRISE. THE NAVY DESTROYED 2 OIL PLATFORMS. SANK
  • 00:08:34.150 --> 00:08:38.130
  • 4 IRANIAN NAVY BOATS. SANK AN IRANIAN FRIGATE AND WENT AFTER
  • 00:08:38.140 --> 00:08:43.160
  • SEVERAL OTHER IRANIAN WARSHIPS. THAT'S WHAT A LEADER DOES. WHAT
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:46.250
  • A LEADER DOES NOT DO, DO WE HAVE THE SOLDIER GIVING THE APOLOGY?
  • 00:08:46.260 --> 00:08:50.280
  • THEN I WANT JORDAN TO COMMENT. OUR NAVAL SOLDIER, OUR SAILOR
  • 00:08:50.290 --> 00:08:56.160
  • WAS COMPELLED TO SAY THIS: -IT WAS A MISTAKE THAT WAS OUR FAULT
  • 00:08:56.170 --> 00:09:00.270
  • AND WE APOLOGIZE FOR OUR MISTAKE. -IN YOUR GPS,
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:04.050
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU HAVE PENTRATED IRANANIAN TERRITORIAL
  • 00:09:04.060 --> 00:09:08.110
  • WATERS? -I BELIEVE SO. -HOW AS THE IRANIAN BEHAVIOR WITH YOU?
  • 00:09:08.120 --> 00:09:14.110
  • -THE IRANIAN BEHAVIOR WAS FANTASTIC WHILE WE WERE HERE. WE
  • 00:09:14.120 --> 00:09:16.220
  • THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HOSPITALITY AND YOUR ASSISTANCE.
  • 00:09:16.230 --> 00:09:20.170
  • -DID YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL PROBLEM? -WE HAD NO PROBLEMS,
  • 00:09:20.180 --> 00:09:23.270
  • SIR. -JORDAN, THIS WHOLE INCIDENT, YOU TAKE GITMO, YOU
  • 00:09:23.280 --> 00:09:27.000
  • TAKE IRAN, YOU PUT IT TOGETHER AND THE PRESIDENT'S POLICY IN
  • 00:09:27.010 --> 00:09:29.250
  • THE MIDDLE EAST IS A DISASTER AND WE'RE PAYING THE
  • 00:09:29.260 --> 00:09:32.010
  • CONSEQUENCE, SERIOUSLY PAYING THE CONSEQUENCE. -EXACTLY
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:34.050
  • RIGHT. THOSE ARE HOSTAGE TYPE VIDEOS MEANT TO EMBARRASS THE
  • 00:09:34.060 --> 00:09:36.290
  • UNITED STATES, EMBARRASS OUR ARMED FORCES. AND YOU REALIZE
  • 00:09:37.000 --> 00:09:40.270
  • THAT THIS WHOLE FEELING IN AMERICA, WE JUST CAN'T TAKE THIS
  • 00:09:40.280 --> 00:09:43.200
  • ANYMORE, AND A PRESIDENT WHO IS EITHER COMPLETELY CHECKED OUT,
  • 00:09:43.210 --> 00:09:47.140
  • BASED OFF THE STATE OF THE UNION, OR LIVING, REALLY LOOKING
  • 00:09:47.150 --> 00:09:51.080
  • AT THE WORLD THROUGH THESE ROSE COLORED GLASSES THAT HIS TEAM
  • 00:09:51.090 --> 00:09:56.000
  • PROVIDES HIM. BECAUSE IT IS JUST NOT REALISTIC, WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:09:56.010 --> 00:09:58.030
  • SEEING, AND HOW WE ARE BEING TREATED. I INCLUDE THIS WITH HOW
  • 00:09:58.040 --> 00:10:01.120
  • RUSSIA HAS GOTTEN INVOLVED IN SYRIA, HOW IRAN WOULD TAKE THESE
  • 00:10:01.130 --> 00:10:05.010
  • TROOPS HOSTAGE THIS WAY, FORCE THEM TO RECORD THESE KINDS OF
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:08.190
  • VIDEOS, RELEASE IMAGES, RELEASE THE VIDEOS, ALL OF THIS GOES TO
  • 00:10:08.200 --> 00:10:11.210
  • AN AMERICAN PERCEIVED WEAKNESS. AND I'M NOT SAYING THAT WE DON'T
  • 00:10:11.220 --> 00:10:15.230
  • HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BE RIGHT BACK AS THE STRONGEST NATION IN
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:19.230
  • THE WORLD AND TO PUT THE FEAR OF GOD IN THESE OTHER COUNTRIES,
  • 00:10:19.240 --> 00:10:23.060
  • BUT WE'RE NOT DOING THAT RIGHT NOW. -NO, WE'RE NOT. WHAT WE
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:26.090
  • ARE GOING TO DO IS TAKE MORE OF YOUR CALLS AND COMMENTS. LET'S
  • 00:10:26.100 --> 00:10:29.020
  • GO AHEAD AND DO THAT, LOGAN. -LET'S GO TO JANE WHO'S CALLING
  • 00:10:29.030 --> 00:10:31.030
  • FROM SPRINGFIELD, VA ON LINE FOUR ALSO YOU'RE ON FACEBOOK,
  • 00:10:31.040 --> 00:10:33.170
  • THANKS JANE. YOUR'E ON THE AIR. -HI, JANE. WE'RE GOING TO SEND
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:35.230
  • YOU A COPY OF ONE OF OUR BOOKS. GO AHEAD. -OKAY. MY QUESTION IS
  • 00:10:35.240 --> 00:10:39.090
  • IF OBAMA IS SUCCESSFUL IN BEING ABLE TO CLOSE GITMO ON HIS OWN,
  • 00:10:39.100 --> 00:10:45.090
  • WOULDN'T IT BE TOO LATE TO UNDO THAT ACTION? -NO. THE PROBLEM
  • 00:10:45.100 --> 00:10:50.110
  • WOULD BE, DEPENDING ON WHAT HAPPENS WITH THAT LEASE WITH THE
  • 00:10:50.120 --> 00:10:53.010
  • CUBANS. AND THIS IS ALL, I THINK, LOOK, I LOOK AT THE
  • 00:10:53.020 --> 00:10:55.260
  • CLOSING OF GITMO NOT IN ISOLATION. I LOOK AT THE CLOSING
  • 00:10:55.270 --> 00:10:58.160
  • OF GITMO AS IT RELATES TO EXACTLY WHAT THE PRESIDENT'S
  • 00:10:58.170 --> 00:11:01.160
  • PLANS ARE IN CUBA. AND THAT IS TO REMOVE THE AMERICAN PRISON.
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:06.060
  • CAN HE PULL THAT OFF IN 12 MONTHS? LISTEN, THAN, LAY OUT
  • 00:11:06.070 --> 00:11:09.150
  • WHAT THE LEGISLATION IS REALLY QUICKLY HERE AND THEN I'M GOING
  • 00:11:09.160 --> 00:11:11.060
  • TO TELL EVERYBODY WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS. -WELL,
  • 00:11:11.070 --> 00:11:12.280
  • THE LAW SAYS THAT THEY CANNOT BE MOVED TO THE UNITED STATES BUT
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:15.110
  • AS IT PERTAINS TO THE CALLER'S QUESTION, JAY, I MEAN, THERE ARE
  • 00:11:15.120 --> 00:11:17.150
  • 2 THINGS. WHAT WILL THE PRESIDENT DO WITH GUANTANAMO
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:19.140
  • BAY? I SUSPECT HE WILL GIVE IT UP ENTIRELY. -THAT'S WHAT I
  • 00:11:19.150 --> 00:11:21.180
  • THINK. RIGHT. -BUT SECONDLY, HE WILL HAVE ALREADY MOVED THESE 59
  • 00:11:21.190 --> 00:11:25.140
  • OUT SO THEY WILL BE IN THE UNITED STATES AND THE NEXT THING
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:27.270
  • THAT HE WILL TRY TO DO IS TRY THEM IN ARTICLE 3 COURTS. SO
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:30.280
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT -WHICH IS CIVILIAN CIVIL COURTS. -RIGHT.
  • 00:11:30.290 --> 00:11:33.070
  • A STEP THAT YOU CAN'T TAKE BACK. YOU COULD OPEN ANOTHER DETENTION
  • 00:11:33.080 --> 00:11:36.050
  • FACILITY FOR NEW DETAINEES. BUT IT WILL BE VERY, VERY HARD TO
  • 00:11:36.060 --> 00:11:39.050
  • WALK IT BACK ON THESE 59. -LET ME TELL YOU WHAT WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:11:39.060 --> 00:11:41.080
  • DO. WE'VE GOT A PETITION UP RIGHT NOW. WE'VE HAD 57.000
  • 00:11:41.090 --> 00:11:42.290
  • SIGNATURES IN WHAT, WILL, 36 HOURS? IN 36 HOURS! SO WE WANT
  • 00:11:43.000 --> 00:11:46.080
  • YOU TO JOIN IT. IT'S A VERY STRAIGHT FORWARD PETITION. IT'S
  • 00:11:46.090 --> 00:11:50.100
  • 1 FOR NATIONAL SECURITY OBVIOUSLY. IT IS TO PREVENT THE
  • 00:11:50.110 --> 00:11:54.020
  • PRESIDENT FROM DOING THIS. AND THAT IS DON'T CLOSE GITMO AND
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:57.000
  • RELEASE MORE TERRORISTS. WILL PRESIDENT OBAMA EVER GET IT? I
  • 00:11:57.010 --> 00:12:00.090
  • DON'T THINK SO. BUT WHAT WE CAN DO IS START BUILDING UP OUR TEAM
  • 00:12:00.100 --> 00:12:02.270
  • NOW SO THAT WHEN HE DOES THIS MOVE WE'RE PREPARED TO GO BOTH
  • 00:12:02.280 --> 00:12:05.220
  • IN CONGRESS AND IN THE COURTS IF NECESSARY AS WE'VE DONE ON
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:09.020
  • MULTIPLE OCCASIONS AND WIN THIS. BUT I NEED YOUR HELP. WE'VE GOT
  • 00:12:09.030 --> 00:12:12.050
  • 57.000 SIGNATURES. WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET THIS UP TO 100.000.
  • 00:12:12.060 --> 00:12:15.010
  • SIGN THAT PETITION NOW. LOGAN? -THAT'S RIGHT. YOU CAN JOIN US
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:18.060

  • PRAY FOR YOU DAILY. -THANK YOU. -MY QUESTON IS WHAT CAN WE DO?
  • 00:12:33.150 --> 00:12:37.090
  • WE'RE THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY. WE ELECTED HIM AND
  • 00:12:37.100 --> 00:12:40.070
  • WOULD THINK AT THIS POINT, UNLESS SOMEBODY JUST DOESN'T
  • 00:12:40.080 --> 00:12:43.130
  • REALLY HAVE VERY GOOD COMMON SENSE, EVEN THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:12:43.140 --> 00:12:46.170
  • VOTED FOR HIM AND SUPPORTED HIM, CANNOT BE IN AGREEMENT WITH HIM
  • 00:12:46.180 --> 00:12:50.130
  • FOR PUTTING US IN DANGER LIKE THIS. -WELL, LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:12:50.140 --> 00:12:53.140
  • THIS, I'M GOING TO PLAY FOR YOU GENERAL JOHN KELLY, I THINK THE
  • 00:12:53.150 --> 00:12:59.090
  • PENTAGON PRESS BRIEFING, THIS IS HOW DANGEROUS THIS IS. IT'S A
  • 00:12:59.100 --> 00:13:02.240
  • VERY QUICK BITE AND THEN I'M GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:13:02.250 --> 00:13:05.140
  • GOING TO DO. TAKE #13: -WE'VE NOW LEARNED THAT THE
  • 00:13:05.150 --> 00:13:08.290
  • ADMINISTRATION HAS RELEASED MUHAMMAD AL RAHMAN AL SHUMRANI.
  • 00:13:09.000 --> 00:13:15.130
  • YOU READ OVER IN HIS FILE THAT THIS GUANTANAMO DETAINEE, 14 OCT
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:21.250
  • 2007 STATED, "WHEN I GET OUT OF HERE I WILL GO TO IRAQ AND
  • 00:13:21.260 --> 00:13:27.200
  • AFGHANISTAN AND KILL AS MANY AMERICANS AS I CAN." -THAT'S
  • 00:13:27.210 --> 00:13:33.040
  • LOUIE GOHMERT, MEMBER OF CONGRESS, SO THIS IS VERY, VERY
  • 00:13:33.050 --> 00:13:37.020
  • CLEAR THAT IT'S NOT JUST US SAYING IT, IT'S THE DEPARTMENT
  • 00:13:37.030 --> 00:13:40.080
  • OF DEFENSE DOCUMENTS, IT'S CONGRESSMAN GOHMERT. VERY
  • 00:13:40.090 --> 00:13:42.160
  • QUICKLY, THAN, YOUR REACTION TO THIS, JORDAN, AND THEN I'M GOING
  • 00:13:42.170 --> 00:13:44.240
  • TO ASK PEOPLE TO TAKE ACTION. -THIS IS THE NORM FOR DETAINES
  • 00:13:44.250 --> 00:13:47.170
  • RELEASED, JAY. THIS IS NOT AN EXCEPTION. WE TALKED ABOUT THE 1
  • 00:13:47.180 --> 00:13:50.030
  • IN 3 NUMBER BUT 3 OF 5 OF THE TALIBAN 5 EXCHANGED FOR BOWE
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:53.140
  • BERGDAHL ALREADY CONFIRMED BACK ON THE BATTLE FIELD. THIS IS
  • 00:13:53.150 --> 00:13:55.150
  • WHAT WE SHOULD EXPECT EVERY TIME WE DO THIS. -AND JORDAN, THE
  • 00:13:55.160 --> 00:13:57.210
  • DANGER OF THIS, OF COURSE, IS IT EMBOLDENS THE ENEMY. -YEAH, SO
  • 00:13:57.220 --> 00:14:01.130
  • I MEAN, THAT'S THE TRUTH IS WHAT IT DOES IS IT GIVES A SIGN THAT,
  • 00:14:01.140 --> 00:14:05.130
  • YEAH, IT MAY TAKE YEARS BUT YOU WILL ULTIMATELY, IF YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:14:05.140 --> 00:14:08.100
  • CAPTURED THIS WAY, THAT THE U.S. WILL RELEASE YOU. AND THINK IT
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:11.090
  • COULD BE USED AS ITS OWN RECRUITING TOOL BECAUSE THE IDEA
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:14.130
  • IS THAT THEY WILL BE RETURNING BACK TO THESE ORGANIZATIONS AS
  • 00:14:14.140 --> 00:14:17.200
  • HEROS WHO DEFIED THE UNITED STATES AND WERE ULTIMATELY STILL
  • 00:14:17.210 --> 00:14:21.120
  • RELEASED. AND TO TRUST THESE OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE OMAN OR
  • 00:14:21.130 --> 00:14:25.030
  • YEMEN OR SAUDI ARABIA TO HOUSE THESE INDIVIDUALS FOR LONG
  • 00:14:25.040 --> 00:14:30.160
  • PERIODS OF TIME IT'S JUST NOT REALISTIC. -WE'VE GOT A LOT
  • 00:14:30.170 --> 00:14:33.250
  • MORE TO DISCUSS. THERE'S A LOT OF LEGAL ISSUES WITH REGARD TO
  • 00:14:33.260 --> 00:14:36.060
  • GITMO. IT'S NOT AS COMPLICATED AS THE WHITE HOUSE IS MAKING IT
  • 00:14:36.070 --> 00:14:39.050
  • SOUND. WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT DIRECT ACTION WE'RE GOING
  • 00:14:39.060 --> 00:14:41.270
  • TO TAKE TO STOP THE TRANSFER OF THESE DETAINEES TO GET THEM BACK
  • 00:14:41.280 --> 00:14:45.240
  • ON THE BATTLE FIELD, WE THINK, IS A HUGE MISTAKE. IT'S GOING TO
  • 00:14:45.250 --> 00:14:48.090
  • TAKE LEGAL ACTION.
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:49.120
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:14:49.130 --> 00:14:55.080
  • JAY SEKULOW:SO WE'VE GOT GITMO
  • 00:14:55.090 --> 00:14:56.160
  • DETAINEES BEING RELEASED. ONE OF THEM THAT WE KNOW ABOUT BECAUSE
  • 00:14:56.170 --> 00:15:00.220
  • THE OTHERS THE ADMINISTRATION DOESN'T WANT TO GIVE US THE
  • 00:15:00.230 --> 00:15:02.280
  • NAMES OF, BY THE WAY. SO ONE OF THEM WE KNOW ABOUT. HE SAYS
  • 00:15:02.290 --> 00:15:05.010
  • DON'T WORRY WHEN I GET OUT OF HERE I WILL GO TO AFGHANISTAN
  • 00:15:05.020 --> 00:15:08.000
  • AND IRAQ AND KILL AS MANY AMERICANS AS I CAN AND THEN I'M
  • 00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:10.180
  • GOING TO COME BACK HERE AND KILL MORE AMERICANS. AND WE THINK
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:12.170
  • HE'S SUITABLE TO GO TO OMAN? NOW WE HAVE THE GROWING CONTROVERSY
  • 00:15:12.180 --> 00:15:17.240
  • OVER IRAN'S CAPTURE OF OUR SAILORS. THEY'VE BEEN LET GO.
  • 00:15:17.250 --> 00:15:20.090
  • BUT THIS HAS CREATED AN ENTIRE ISSUE. SKIP ASH IS A SENIOR
  • 00:15:20.100 --> 00:15:24.140
  • COUNSEL FOR THE ACLJ, IN CHARGE OF OUR INTERNATIONAL PRACTICE
  • 00:15:24.150 --> 00:15:28.110
  • WHEN IT COMES TO LAW OF WAR. SKIP, I ASKED YOU THIS QUESTION
  • 00:15:28.120 --> 00:15:31.100
  • DURING THE BREAK. I WANT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND IT NOW. THE
  • 00:15:31.110 --> 00:15:33.290
  • IRANIANS WENT IN, TOOK OVER THESE BOATS, TOOK OUR SOLDIERS
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:36.290
  • CAPTIVE. WHAT IS THE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES OF THE IRANIAN
  • 00:15:37.000 --> 00:15:39.060
  • ACTIONS? SKIP ASH: WELL, IF IT WAS A MISTAKE ON THE PART OF THE
  • 00:15:39.070 --> 00:15:42.280
  • UNITED STATES CREW AND THEY INADVERTENTLY WENT INTO IRANIAN
  • 00:15:42.290 --> 00:15:46.150
  • WATERS, THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN WARNED AWAY, THE IRANIANS COULD
  • 00:15:46.160 --> 00:15:50.060
  • HAVE COME OUT AND ESCORTED THEM OUT OF THEIR WATERS. BUT THERE
  • 00:15:50.070 --> 00:15:52.080
  • WAS NO HOSTILE ACT. IT WAS A MISTAKE. IF IT WAS A RESULT OF A
  • 00:15:52.090 --> 00:15:55.040
  • PROBLEM WITH ONE OF THE AMERICAN VESSELS AND IT DRIFTED IN, OKAY,
  • 00:15:55.050 --> 00:15:58.210
  • UNDER THE PEACETIME RULES OF MARITIME RULES, THEY SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:15:58.220 --> 00:16:02.280
  • GONE OUT AND RENDERED ASSISTANCE. UNLESS THEY HAVE
  • 00:16:02.290 --> 00:16:05.160
  • PROOF THAT THE UNITED STATES WAS ENGAGED IN A HOSTILE ACT, AND
  • 00:16:05.170 --> 00:16:09.040
  • MERELY GOING INTO ANOTHER NATION'S WATERS IS NOT A HOSTILE
  • 00:16:09.050 --> 00:16:12.180
  • ACT, THEY SHOULD HAVE ESCORTED THEM OUT AND THAT SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:16:12.190 --> 00:16:15.020
  • BEEN THE END OF IT. -SO ASSUMING FOR A MOMENT THERE WAS
  • 00:16:15.030 --> 00:16:17.140
  • NO HOSTILE ACT, WHICH WE KNOW THERE WASN'T, WE KNOW THAT THEY
  • 00:16:17.150 --> 00:16:19.210
  • DRIFTED THERE ACCIDENTALLY IF THEY GOT IN THERE AT ALL. THEY
  • 00:16:19.220 --> 00:16:22.040
  • WENT ONTO OUR BOATS. WHAT WAS THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE
  • 00:16:22.050 --> 00:16:25.070
  • IRANIANS? WHAT'S THE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES OF THE IRANIAN
  • 00:16:25.080 --> 00:16:27.260
  • REGIME CAPTURING OUR NAVY SOLDIERS, OUR SAILORS? -WELL,
  • 00:16:27.270 --> 00:16:31.290
  • THAT'S A HOSTILE ACT BETWEEN 2 NATIONS THAT ARE NOT AT WAR AND
  • 00:16:32.000 --> 00:16:35.230
  • THEREFORE IT'S A HOSTILE ACT. TO DISARM OUR PEOPLE, TO TAKE THEM,
  • 00:16:35.240 --> 00:16:40.270
  • PUT THEM IN DETENTION, -RIGHT. -TO OCCUPY THOSE SHIPS, IS AN
  • 00:16:40.280 --> 00:16:43.180
  • ACT OF WAR. AND ONCE YOU HAVE ADMITTED THAT AN ARMED CONFLICT
  • 00:16:43.190 --> 00:16:47.260
  • IS ON THE WAY, IS UNDERWAY, THEN YOU HAVE OBLIGATIONS ON HOW YOU
  • 00:16:47.270 --> 00:16:51.160
  • TREAT THOSE SAILORS AND THAT WAS VIOLATED TOO. -SURE. YEAH.
  • 00:16:51.170 --> 00:16:55.040
  • WELL, WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT IN A MINUTE. HERE'S WHAT SECRETARY
  • 00:16:55.050 --> 00:16:56.280
  • JOHN KERRY SAID, #41: -I WANT TO UNDERSCORE HOW PLEASED I AM
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:17:00.100
  • THAT OUR SAILORS WERE SAFELY RETURNED INTO UNITED STATES
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:04.130
  • HANDS THIS MORNING. I ALSO WANT TO THANK THE IRANIAN AUTHORITIES
  • 00:17:04.140 --> 00:17:08.100
  • FOR THEIR COOPERATION AND QUICK RESPONSE. -THIS IS DISGUSTING.
  • 00:17:08.110 --> 00:17:13.160
  • OKAY? THIS IS, WE ARE PRECEIVED TO BE SO WEAK, JORDAN, IT IS
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:18.140
  • DISGUSTING. -YES, I MEAN, WE'RE THANKING IRAN AFTER THEY'VE MADE
  • 00:17:18.150 --> 00:17:22.240
  • PROPAGANDA VIDEOS OF OUR SOLDIERS AND HAD OUR SOLDIERS
  • 00:17:22.250 --> 00:17:27.000
  • APOLOGIZE ON CAMERA. THEY'VE SHOWN THEM HUDDLING AWAY AND
  • 00:17:27.010 --> 00:17:30.260
  • THIS ROOM AND SEIZING THEIR WEAPONS. THIS IS, AGAIN, WHAT
  • 00:17:30.270 --> 00:17:35.030
  • WE'RE BEING THANKFUL FOR TO THE WORLD. AND THIS IS WHAT THE REST
  • 00:17:35.040 --> 00:17:37.240
  • OF OUR ALLIES ARE TALKING ABOUT WHEN THEY SEE THAT IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:17:37.250 --> 00:17:41.210
  • WE WILL JUST LET IRAN GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING AND WE'RE BOWING
  • 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:45.100
  • DOWN TO IRAN AND WE'RE FIGHTING WITH OUR ALLIES. -ALRIGHT,
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:49.070
  • LET'S DO THIS, WE'VE GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN
  • 00:17:49.080 --> 00:17:50.200
  • HOLDING. LET'S GO RIGHT BACK TO THE PHONES. WE'RE TAKING
  • 00:17:50.210 --> 00:17:52.040
  • COMMENTS ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER. LET'S GO AHEAD LOGAN.
  • 00:17:52.050 --> 00:17:53.280
  • LOGAN SEKULOW: ALRIGHT, LET'S GO TO THE PHONES. LET'S GO TO MARY
  • 00:17:53.290 --> 00:17:55.250
  • ELLEN WHO'S CALLING FROM CHICAGO ON LINE THREE. MARY ELLEN,
  • 00:17:55.260 --> 00:17:57.270
  • WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE. -HI, MARY ELLEN. -YES, I HAVE
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:18:00.070
  • A QUESTION ABOUT THESE DETAINEES. AND I DON'T KNOW THE
  • 00:18:00.080 --> 00:18:05.080
  • RULES OF INTERNATIONAL WAR OR WHATEVER THEY ARE. -SURE, OKAY.
  • 00:18:05.090 --> 00:18:08.210
  • -BUT WHY ARE THESE, THEY'VE DECLARED WAR ON US, -RIGHT.
  • 00:18:08.220 --> 00:18:13.120
  • -THEY WANT TO COME BACK AND KILL US. -RIGHT. -WHY CAN'T
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:16.250
  • THEY BE TRIED AND EXECUTED? -WELL, THE TRIALS IN GUANTANAMO
  • 00:18:16.260 --> 00:18:21.110
  • BAY, SKIP, HAVE GONE SLOWLY BECAUSE WE'RE NOT OBLIGATED TO
  • 00:18:21.120 --> 00:18:26.020
  • TRY THEM. -THAT'S CORRECT. WE HAVE NO OBLIGATION DURING THE
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:30.190
  • TIME OF HOSTILITIES TO TRY ANYONE, -RIGHT. -FOR ANYTHING.
  • 00:18:30.200 --> 00:18:35.100
  • SO WE CAN HOLD THEM UNTIL THE HOSTILITIES ARE OVER. IF WE
  • 00:18:35.110 --> 00:18:37.220
  • BELIEVE THEY HAVE COMMITTED A CRIME, A WAR CRIME, THEN WE DO
  • 00:18:37.230 --> 00:18:40.150
  • HAVE THE OPTION OF TRYING THEM. BUT IF WE DO THAT, THEN THEY
  • 00:18:40.160 --> 00:18:44.140
  • HAVE THE RIGHTS THAT ARE GRANTED TO THEM UNDER THE UNIFORM CODE
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:47.200
  • OF MILITARY JUSTICE. AND THEY WOULD HAVE A TRIAL AND SOME OF
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:50.270
  • THOSE ARE ONGOING NOW. -AND THAN, THE APPETITE FOR THIS IN
  • 00:18:50.280 --> 00:18:54.040
  • CAPITOL HILL, I WANT PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WE'VE GOT HERE,
  • 00:18:54.050 --> 00:18:56.190
  • WE'VE GOT IRAN TAKING OVER SOLDIERS, HUMILIATING OUR
  • 00:18:56.200 --> 00:18:59.190
  • SOLDIERS, OUR SAILORS, SO WE'RE GOING TO DISCUSS THAT IN THE
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:02.280
  • NEXT SEGMENT OF THE BROADCAST WITH SKIP. BUT THEN YOU ALSO
  • 00:19:02.290 --> 00:19:05.210
  • HAVE THE RELEASE OF THE GITMO DETAINEES. YOU'RE RUNNING OUR
  • 00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:09.030
  • GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS OFFICE. YOU'RE IN OUR MEDIA CENTERS
  • 00:19:09.040 --> 00:19:11.060
  • TODAY BUT YOU'VE BEEN IN WASHINGTON, WHAT IS THE REACTION
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:13.050
  • GOING TO BE? I KNOW WE'VE GOT TO PREPARE FOR COURT HERE. -WELL,
  • 00:19:13.060 --> 00:19:15.130
  • THE LANGUAGE THAT THEY PASSED PROHIBITING TRANSFER, JAY,
  • 00:19:15.140 --> 00:19:17.280
  • PASSED SO OVERWHELMINGLY THAT THE PRESIDENT WAS FORCE TO SIGN
  • 00:19:17.290 --> 00:19:20.290
  • IT. SO I MEAN, THAT SHOWS YOU JUST HOW STRONGLY THEY WANT TO
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:23.130
  • KEEP FROM TRANSFERRING THESE DETAINEES OUT. BUT SO MUCH OF
  • 00:19:23.140 --> 00:19:26.160
  • THIS, THAT SKIP WAS TALKING ABOUT, COMES BACK TO THE
  • 00:19:26.170 --> 00:19:28.210
  • FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION, ARE WE AT WAR? AND IF WE ARE AT WAR, YOU
  • 00:19:28.220 --> 00:19:31.260
  • ACTUALLY DON'T WANT TO TRY THESE DETAINEES. YOU WANT TO KEEP THEM
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:34.120
  • SO THAT YOU CAN POSSIBLY GATHER INTELLIGENCE. YOU CERTAINLY
  • 00:19:34.130 --> 00:19:37.090
  • DON'T WANT TO PUT COMBATANTS BACK ON THE BATTLEFIELD.
  • 00:19:37.100 --> 00:19:40.010
  • -RIGHT. -THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO CHANGE THAT QUESTION. HE
  • 00:19:40.020 --> 00:19:42.190
  • WANTS TO ACT LIKE WE'RE NOT AT WAR. THAT'S WHY HE WANTS TO
  • 00:19:42.200 --> 00:19:44.110
  • CLOSE IT DOWN IN THE 1ST PLACE. CONGRESS ISN'T WITH HIM ON IT
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:46.210
  • INCLUDING MUCH OF HIS PARTY. - I KNOW WE'VE GOT A LOT OF CALLS
  • 00:19:46.220 --> 00:19:49.060
  • AND COMMENTS COMING IN, LOGAN. -LET'S TAKE ONE MORE CALL
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:50.230
  • BEFORE WE GO TO BREAK. LET'S GO TO ZACK WHO'S CALLING FROM LOS
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:53.040
  • ANGELES, CA. ZACK, WELCOME TO JAY SEKULOW LIVE. YOU'RE ON THE
  • 00:19:53.050 --> 00:19:55.230
  • AIR. -HEY, JAY. I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU MY WIFE AND I REALLY
  • 00:19:55.240 --> 00:19:59.110
  • APPRECIATE THE EXPORT, YOUR WORK THERE THAT YOU DID. -OH, THANKS
  • 00:19:59.120 --> 00:20:02.060
  • ZACK. -YEAH, MY QUESTION WAS HOW CAN THE LEFT JUSTIFY THE
  • 00:20:02.070 --> 00:20:07.000
  • RELEASE OF THE GITMO PRISONERS? -OH, THEY DO IT BY SAYING THIS,
  • 00:20:07.010 --> 00:20:11.020
  • THAT GITMO IS A RECRUITING TOOL FOR ISIS; THEY USE GITMO AS A
  • 00:20:11.030 --> 00:20:14.090
  • RECRUITING TOOL. BUT DOES ANYBODY THAT'S LISTENING TO THIS
  • 00:20:14.100 --> 00:20:17.130
  • BROADCAST, THERE'S MILLIONS OF YOU LISTENING TO THIS RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:20:17.140 --> 00:20:19.050
  • OR WATCHING ON FACEBOOK OR PERISCOPE OR ON OUR WEBSITE, DO
  • 00:20:19.060 --> 00:20:21.220
  • ANY OF YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT GITMO, JORDAN, IS A RECRUITING
  • 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:25.070
  • TOOL FOR ISIS? THAT THEY NEED GITMO TO GET THEIR RECRUITS?
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:28.230
  • -NO! I MEAN, THAT'S NOT EVEN THE SAME KIND OF BATTLE THAT
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:32.110
  • WE'RE FACING WHEN WE'RE DEALING WITH ISIS, THE RISE OF ISIS THAT
  • 00:20:32.120 --> 00:20:35.290
  • WE SAW, IT WAS UNRELATED TO THIS AND SO THE FOCUS HAS BEEN IN
  • 00:20:36.000 --> 00:20:40.230
  • SYRIA AND, OF COURSE, IRAQ AND A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT THAN THE
  • 00:20:40.240 --> 00:20:44.120
  • TRADITIONAL AL QAEDA OPERATIVES THOUGH THERE'S CERTAINLY SOME
  • 00:20:44.130 --> 00:20:47.090
  • HISTORY THERE. THEY DON'T NEED GITMO TO RECRUIT. -OF COURSE
  • 00:20:47.100 --> 00:20:51.030
  • NOT. -THAT'S NOT WHERE THEY'RE FOCUSING IN ON THEIR
  • 00:20:51.040 --> 00:20:52.240
  • RECRUITMENT. THEY'RE FOCUSING IN ON THEIR RECRUITMENT ON TAPPING
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:55.140
  • INTO A RADICALISM WITHIN ISLAM AND THEY'RE FOCUSING THAT
  • 00:20:55.150 --> 00:20:59.020
  • THROUGHOUT THE WORLD AS WE SEE ATTACKS IN INDONESIA, TURKEY,
  • 00:20:59.030 --> 00:21:03.000
  • AND RIGHT HERE AT HOME IN THE UNITED STATES AS WELL AS WESTERN
  • 00:21:03.010 --> 00:21:04.250
  • EUROPE. -THAN, GIVE ME A QUICK REACTION THEN I'VE GOT SOMETHING
  • 00:21:04.260 --> 00:21:06.180
  • I WANT TO ASK LOGAN. -WELL, THEY DON'T EVEN NEED RECRUITS IF
  • 00:21:06.190 --> 00:21:08.190
  • WE'RE GOING TO GIVE THEM THEIR DETAINEES BACK. THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:21:08.200 --> 00:21:10.220
  • WHO HAVE COMMITTED THE CRIMES. -THEY'VE BECOME THEIR LEADERS.
  • 00:21:10.230 --> 00:21:12.130
  • -THEY DON'T NEED TO RECRUIT NEW PEOPLE IF WE'RE GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:21:12.140 --> 00:21:14.120
  • THEM BACK THE ONES THAT HAVE ALREADY FOUGHT. -AND THESE
  • 00:21:14.130 --> 00:21:16.080
  • BECOME THEIR LEADERS. I MEAN, SO YOU'RE A BADGE OF HONOR BECAUSE
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:20.000
  • YOU WERE IN GITMO. SO WANT US TO KEEP THEM IN GITMO OR AS SKIP
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:24.070
  • SAID, TRY THEM, BUT I THINK KEEP THEM IN GITMO WE'RE IN
  • 00:21:24.080 --> 00:21:26.080
  • HOSTILITIES WITH THIS GROUP. LOGAN, WHAT'S THE REACTION ON
  • 00:21:26.090 --> 00:21:28.170
  • FACEBOOK AND PERISCOPE RIGHT NOW? I'M SEEING SOME. I'M NOT
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:31.020
  • SEE ALL. I MEAN, PEOPLE ARE A BIT SHOCKED. -YEAH, I THINK
  • 00:21:31.030 --> 00:21:33.120
  • IT'S MAINLY PEOPLE ARE SHOCKED, PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED AS TO WHY
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:35.230
  • THIS WOULD EVEN HAPPEN. WHY WE WOULD LET SOMEONE OUT WHO HAS
  • 00:21:35.240 --> 00:21:37.210
  • THIS ON THEIR TRACK RECORD. IT'S PUBLIC INFORMATION THAT HE SAID
  • 00:21:37.220 --> 00:21:40.190
  • THESE TYPES OF THINGS, DIFFERENT IF YOU CAN AT LEAST SHOW THAT
  • 00:21:40.200 --> 00:21:43.120
  • THERE MAY BE ONE PEACEFUL PERSON IN THERE, WHICH WOULD BE A
  • 00:21:43.130 --> 00:21:45.280
  • SHOCK, TO SAY THE LEAST, BUT THE FACT THAT YOU RELEASED SOMEONE
  • 00:21:45.290 --> 00:21:47.260
  • WHO SAYS HORRIFIC THINGS AGAINST THE COUNTRY, AGAINST PEOPLE,
  • 00:21:47.270 --> 00:21:49.270
  • AGAINST SOLDIERS AND THE CITIZENS, SO PEOPLE ARE JUST IN
  • 00:21:49.280 --> 00:21:54.100
  • GENERAL SHOCKED. -LOGAN, 2 MORE CALLS. CAN WE DO 2 IN 2 MINUTES?
  • 00:21:54.110 --> 00:21:56.240
  • -I THINK SO. LET'S GO TO JANE FIRST FROM PHOENIX. YOU'RE ON
  • 00:21:56.250 --> 00:21:59.250
  • THE AIR. -HEY, JANE. -HI, JAY. FIRST OF ALL, I JUST WANTED TO
  • 00:21:59.260 --> 00:22:03.180
  • SAY THANK YOU TO YOU AND ACLJ FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK.
  • 00:22:03.190 --> 00:22:06.210
  • -THANKS. -BUT MY QUESTION IS I WAS WONDERING, DOES IT MATTER IF
  • 00:22:06.220 --> 00:22:09.130
  • THESE DETAINEES HAVE BEEN CAPTURED OR MAY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:22:09.140 --> 00:22:12.040
  • CAPTURED DURING AN AMBUSH THAT A PAST PRESIDENT MAY HAVE
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:14.090
  • AUTHORIZED, COULD THERE BE A WRITTEN PAST POLICY THAT COULD
  • 00:22:14.100 --> 00:22:17.140
  • PROHIBIT WHAT OBAMA'S CURRENTLY DOING? -NO. WE HAVE TO, WE'VE
  • 00:22:17.150 --> 00:22:20.150
  • GOT FEDERAL LAW IN PLACE, THERE'S LEGISLATION IN PLACE
  • 00:22:20.160 --> 00:22:23.170
  • THAT ALLOWS US, IF NECESSARY, AND I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE, TO
  • 00:22:23.180 --> 00:22:26.210
  • CHALLENGE IT, BUT LOOK, THE PRESIDENT, THEY'VE GOT A LOT OF
  • 00:22:26.220 --> 00:22:29.250
  • AUTHORITY AS COMMANDER AND CHIEF, BUT THIS ONE, THERE IS
  • 00:22:29.260 --> 00:22:31.170
  • SPECIFIC CONGRESSIONAL ACTION. I THINK, THAN, WE NEED TO BE VERY
  • 00:22:31.180 --> 00:22:34.240
  • CLEAR IN WHAT'S IN PLACE NOW. -JUST VERY QUICKLY, IT IS
  • 00:22:34.250 --> 00:22:37.010
  • ILLEGAL TO REMOVE THEM TO THE UNITED STATES AND ALSO, THAT HE
  • 00:22:37.020 --> 00:22:40.170
  • HAS TO LEARN FROM THE MISTAKES OF THE PAST PRESIDENT. SOME OF
  • 00:22:40.180 --> 00:22:43.090
  • THESE WERE RELEASED UNDER THE PAST ADMINISTRATION. -RIGHT.
  • 00:22:43.100 --> 00:22:45.080
  • -WE HAVE THAT DATA TO LOOK AT NOW. WE HAVE TO PLEAD WITH HIM
  • 00:22:45.090 --> 00:22:47.280
  • TO ACTUALLY USE IT. -YEAH, THAT'S THE PROBLEM. ALRIGHT,
  • 00:22:47.290 --> 00:22:50.190
  • LYNN, -THANK YOU, LYNN, DURHAM, NC. YOU'RE ON THE AIR. -HI,

  • US UPDATED. -SURE. -REGARDING THE NAVY INCIDENT, -YEAH? -I
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:02.260
  • READ IN THE PAST HOUR A POST ON FACEBOOK THAT SAID THAT JOHN
  • 00:23:02.270 --> 00:23:07.100
  • KERRY ACTUALLY CALLED IRAN AND ASKED FOR THEIR HELP. IS THAT
  • 00:23:07.110 --> 00:23:11.100
  • TRUE? -CORRECT. ASKED FOR THEIR QUICK RELEASE. HERE'S WHAT JOHN
  • 00:23:11.110 --> 00:23:14.120
  • KERRY ACTUALLY SAID. LET ME READ IT FOR YOU. IT SAYS, I WANT TO

  • WORDS IN HIS MOUTH. DO WE HAVE THAT BITE? LET'S PLAY IT.
  • 00:23:29.240 --> 00:23:32.260
