No Otto Skorzeny


Otto Skorzeny

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street

Only a man in a funny red sheet

Looking for special things inside of me

Six former Guantanamo Bay detainees were recently found to be operating out of Yemen (Freed Guantanamo Inmates Headed for Yeman to join a-Qaeada Fight.) While factually true, it is fiction that they present high-order threats to our Homeland security. They are certainly not sufficient to justify another front of the Phony War on Terror (PWOT ©).

These people are a far shot from Otto Skorzeny.


Mr. Skorzeny was a World war II SS Obersturmbannfuhrer and part of the daring
Werwolf guerrilla movement. But even Otto Skorzeny was not Otto Skorzeny. Though one of the world's premeir commandos, he was not an existential threat to the U.S. His actions were insignificant in the larger picture of WWII. Perspective is priceless.

The former Gitmo detainees are of no consequence when assessing the overall threat level offered by al-Qaeda and Yemen.
They lack sophistication and possess no potential for manueverability or projection of hostile intentions. And al-Qaeda and Yemen pose questionable threats, other than locally.

Al-Qaeda and Yeman are not even al-Qaeda and Yemen, as writ large on the nightly news.
