Commenting on the catch-and-release program of the Obama administration–releasing the five Guantanamo Bay prisoners back to Afghanistan–West outlined what his procedure would be regarding the Middle Eastern terrorists.
“First and foremost I would move away from this sense of nation building and occupation style warfare, we would be focused on strike operations,” West began as he listed his four strategic imperatives. “We would deny the enemy any sanctuary, we would go after his ideology through a dedicated information operation, we would cut off his support of man material and financial support and last but not least we would cordon him off and reduce his ability to have any sphere of influence.”
“That’s the type of strategic level imperatives that we need to have.”
