Send Freed Gitmo Terrorists to ACORN for Mortgage Help

By on 4.6.09 | 7:28PM

The Obama administration has proposed releasing terrorists currently being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba into the United States.

National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair said recently that the former detainees would have to be given some kind of government assistance to help. "We can't put them out on the street," he said.

Maybe the innovators at ACORN will help them use their food stamps to get mortgages. These pioneering community activists figured out in the late 1990s that government welfare benefits could be recycled and transformed into "income." ACORN and other left-wing groups hounded banks until they agreed to accept a loosening of underwriting standards.

Yes, we can!

Leveraging taxpayer dollars in this way will have countless benefits: The welfare state gets bigger, the housing and financial markets are stimulated, and the terrorists are free to pursue the American Dream.

It's a win-win situation for the Obama administration.
