Carly Fiorina on Homeland Security

 


Keep Gitmo; don't try foreign terrorists in civilian court

Government's first and foremost priority is to protect its citizens. That means defending our nation from threats of all kinds, both domestic and foreign. Carly strongly opposes trying foreign terrorists in civilian court, and she also opposes closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. These enemy combatants have not earned the right to protections under the U.S. Constitution and should not be given special treatment for political reasons.

Campaign donations from jihadists should be returned

Q: Reports say you have had relationships with 4 individuals with jihadists and jihadist views.

CAMPBELL: Silent slander stops today. Carly Fiorina's lead campaign consultant slandered me by calling me an anti-Semite. When I was running for the US Senate in 2000, Sammy Al Arian helped me. I note that he also helped George W. Bush who was running for President. I do not think that I deserve the kind of attack however that has been launched that somehow I am jihadist.

FIORINA: Unlike Tom Campbell George W. Bush gave back the campaign contribution. Tom Campbell refused to do so. Also the views of the Professor that he mentioned were well known and aired on Bill O'Reilly prior to his being fired. I do not believe you are an anti Semite. Marty Wilson tells me he never made that comment, but I do believe this--Israel is our most important ally in the Middle East, they have made great sacrifices for peace there faced with an existential threat, and CA voters need to know our views.

Guantanamo Bay isn't broken, so don't fix it

Q: On Guantanamo Bay and Miranda Rights for those [accused of terrorism; your opinion?]

FIORINA: Common sense says that if something's not broken you don't fix it. I don't think Guantanamo Bay is broken. I think it works just fine. For those who say Guantanamo Bay is a recruiting tool for terrorists, even if we close Guantanamo Bay, those who intend to harm us will come up with another recruiting tool. Guantanamo should be the place where enemy combatants are tried in military tribunals and held. I do not believe that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, or the Christmas Day bomber have earned the right of American citizens. I do not think they have eared the assumption of innocence particularly when they have confessed to these acts, in some cases in chilling detail. I do not believe we should be trying in civilian courts. I do not believe American taxpayer money should be layering them up. I believe they should be tried, and if possible, executed in military tribunals or held in Guantanamo Bay

Opposes banning homosexuals in the military.

Fiorina opposes the CC survey question on banning homosexuals in the military

The Christian Coalition voter guide [is] one of the most powerful tools Christians have ever had to impact our society during elections. This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.

The CC survey summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: "Enforcing the 1993 law banning homosexuals in the military"
