**Written by Doug Powers Osama bin Laden has been found, but the Obama administration’s search for the same page continues. Deputy National Security Advisor John Brennan was on Morning Joe earlier in the day and countered a New York Times article that said information obtained by waterboarding helped lead US forces to Osama bin Laden: […]
Some must sacrifice so others can have more
Marc Thiessen’s must-read book, Courting Disaster, skyrocketed to #9 on the NYTimes best-seller list this coming week. Thiessen has relentlessly exposed how the Left and Obama are sabotaging all the effective intelligence-gathering programs that the Bush administration created to prevent jihadi attacks after 9/11 — and how media propagandists are helping them. Here’s one of […]
The Left’s clown prince, Jon Stewart, “took on” UC Berkeley law professor/former Bush DOJ official John Yoo on Monday. Yoo has just published “Crisis and Command” — a thorough, compelling history of the use of executive power by America’s presidents from Washington to Bush. Yoo has been demonized by the nutroots and stalked at his […]
On August 26, my syndicated column blasted the ACLU for its spying operation on undercover CIA agents. The pictures of covert American CIA officers – “in some cases surreptitiously taken outside their homes” – were shown to jihadi suspects tied to the 9/11 attacks in order to identify the interrogators. The ACLU responded to my […]
Have you heard a peep from ACLU supporters about the group’s special spying project on undercover CIA agents? Me neither. It’s the subject of my syndicated column this week. IBD has an excellent editorial. Few other MSM papers have weighed in. ACLU: Spying for America’s enemies by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2009 Savor the […]
DOJ reveals that Bush/CIA interrogators threatened KSM’s children; Holder to appoint special prosecutor
Can’t say I’m getting all wee-weed up about the DOJ disclosure today that Bush/CIA interrogators threatened 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed’s family (info that isn’t even new.) Nope. No tears. How about you? Flashback: 9/11 Children Flashback: Angels on loan from God Via Sgt. Tim Sumner, photos of the angel children murdered on 9/11: Lan […]
All wee-wee’d up.
Zombie reports on the harassment campaign against John Yoo: See how Berkeley shows its tolerance. But the left won’t call it a “climate of hate.” They’re just exercising their free speech. *** Commenter Ragspierre: “Replace the name of Yoo with any abortion provider, and ask what the consequence would be…”
Shorter Obama: I am against preventive detention (Bush’s), except when I am for it (mine). I am for transparency (“torture/”interrogation memos), except when I am against it (“torture/”interrogation photos). I am against the power to order enhanced interrogation techniques, except when I assume that power myself. I am against “extended re-litigation of the last eight […]
The House GOP conference picks the perfect background music for Nancy Pelosi’s stammering, stuttering and verbal pirouettes: the Nutcracker Suite. Perfect: Dan Collins dubs it “Dance of the Sugarplum Failure.”
The House Republicans are not letting up on Nancy Pelosi. Good. GOP House Leader Boehner says put up the evidence that the CIA lied or apologize: And the House GOP Conference is pounding the Democratic culture of corruption: “Tonight, House Republican Conference Secretary John Carter will lead Special Orders live on CSPAN to review where […]
Photoshop credit: David Johnson We had dueling press conferences this morning with Nancy Pelosi accusing the Bush CIA of lying to her about waterboarding and House GOP leader John Boehner defending the integrity of the briefers. Pelosi had a particularly frozen look on her face throughout her presser as she repeated the “Bush lied about […]
Well, well, well. Reality bites the White House in the ass, again. From the administration that was against military tribunals before they were for them and which flip-flopped on a “truth commission” after a public backlash comes the decision to bail on the ACLU and fight the release of detainee “torture” photos after signaling last […]
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew from September 2, 2002 that enhanced interrogation techniques, including waterboarding, were being used on jihadi detainees. She knew. From Day One. That’s what the CIA memo, published at Human Events, shows. ABC News follows. Pelosi’s spokesperson says his boss has a “recollection” that is “different.” Nancy Pelosi: Blink, blink. Allahpundit […]
Results from the latest Rasmussen poll show a public more in tune with Dick Cheney than George Soros: Fifty-eight percent (58%) believe the Obama administration’s recent release of CIA memos about the harsh interrogation methods used on terrorism suspects endangers the national security of the United States. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found […]
More Obama backtracking that will not surprise you, via ABC News: President Obama suggested today that it remained a possibility that the Justice Department might bring charges against officials of the Bush administration who devised harsh interrogation policies that some see as torture. He also suggested that if there is any sort of investigation into […]
I’m watching Sen. Arlen Specter on the Senate floor right now blithering about how he’ll vote for AG nominee Eric Holder despite the corrupt Marc Rich and FALN pardons. Holder “deserves the benefit of the doubt” and deserves bipartisanship support since Sen. Leahy supported Chief Justice John Roberts. The latest AP dispatch on Holder’s expected […]
Wow. Today is just one big, bad joke. Al Franken. Roland Burris. Bill Richardson. Now this: Leon Panetta will head Obama’s CIA. Another day, another clueless Clinton crony named to a top job for which he has no experience. The unqualified fish rots from the head down, after all. Via NYT. Damned scary: President-elect Barack […]
I shouldn’t be surprised about this newest outrage; we’ve seen no shortage of it in Iraq from Sadr’s goons. Chunks of hair waft lazily across the floor in the hot Baghdad breeze. “This was the torture room,” said Muhanad, the leader of a U.S.-backed armed group that now controls the mosque. “This is what they […]
Have an unhappy Independence Day! (Photo: Protest Shooter)
While I was stuck in traffic on the way to UStream’s Mountain View offices for the From the Frontlines web-a-thon yesterday, I tuned into the Gitmo interrogation hearing by the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties. Serving as human voo-doo dolls: Berkeley law professor John Yoo, who served in the […]
