Johnny Micheal Spann’s daughter Alison was nine years old when he was murdered by rioting Taliban prisoners in Afghanistan in 2001, making him the first American to die in the war. 13 years later, she got to watch Barack Obama set the mastermind of her father’s killing free. The scumbag in question, Mullah Mohammed Fazi, is considered one of the most dangerous members of Obama’s Taliban Five, a war criminal and mass murderer even before the Americans ever got to Afghanistan. He was the Taliban’s defense minister, and he turned out to be worth only one-fifth of a deserter in the deal struck by Barack Obama, Master Negotiator.
Alison Spann talked to Fox News about the release of the man behind her father’s murder:
“My initial reaction was shock. I was shocked that our president would release five of the most high-risk prisoners being held in Guantanamo in exchange for one American,” she told FoxNews.com. “As a whole, my family was extremely upset and saddened that our government would do something like this, especially in light of the fact that it seems that people in the intelligence community are fairly united in their belief that these terrorists are likely to seek to further harm Americans in the future.”
She has followed the story closely, but still cannot fathom how the country her father loved and fought for could allow his killer to go free.
“It does become harder and harder to have faith in an administration that is plagued with scandal after scandal,” she said. “I do not believe that it was the right move by the administration.”
[…] “You cannot release someone of such a high caliber within the Taliban community and expect him to suddenly emerge as a peaceful being. I would think now more than ever after being detained in Gitmo that he would seek revenge on America,” she said. “These prisoners had one goal when they went into Gitmo and I feel certain that they left Gitmo with that same goal, and that is to do harm and spread evil in the world. The implications from this act will reach further than our soil and I am afraid that these prisoners have no plans of standing down from their original fight.”
Is there any chance we could make Alison Spann Secretary of State? She’s a damn sight smarter and wiser than John Kerry.
Here she is talking to CNN about her father:
So how about it, lefties? Does Alison Spann have “absolute moral authority,” the way you all insisted Mother Cindy Sheehan did, back when George Bush was president and you were all claiming to be “anti-war?” Where’s her Rose Garden ceremony? Think she’ll get invited to be Obama’s guest at the next State of the Union address?
