Good. Bush has issued a statement: Former President George W. Bush, whose entire presidency was defined by the September 11th attacks, said in a statement tonight that President Obama called him to inform him of the news of bin Laden’s death. Bush called the operation a “momentous achievement” that “marks a victory for America, for… Continue reading Osama Bin Laden Dead
No Right Turn lashes out at the Obama administration for not calling the attack on the IRS “terrorism”. This morning, a man crashed a plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas. He left behind a manifesto, an angry rant which made it clear his actions were based on libertarian / [tea party] ideology. US… Continue reading Yes, It’s Terrorism, but where from?
Don’t agree with everything he says by a long shot, but near the end he makes a good point: that almost everyone who’s been opposed to the prison who has actually visited has changed their mind about it. Funniest part is when he’s looking at the rafts that Cubans have made and wonders where the… Continue reading Crowder on Gitmo
It’s all over the news today – the USA was mean to terrorists! The gun and the drill were brought into an interrogation session of suspected USS Cole bomber and alleged al-Qaeda commander Rahim al-Nashiri, according to US reports says BBC News…. The CIA report says the drill was held near Saudi-born Mr Nashiri’s head… Continue reading Evil Interrogation
Seems that the left is never going to understand what the Geneva Conventions actually say. They’ve got this fantasy that George W. Bush decided to throw them out, and by golly they’re going to stick with it. In February 2002, following extensive discussions about what to do with prisoners captured in the US’s (then) new… Continue reading Geneva Conventions’ myths strike again
Apparently the Democrats can’t even remember which secret programs the NYT has alread blown the cover on. Threatening to investigate a “secret” program that was outed in 2002 is getting pretty lame. But it’s a PR tatic that’s fooling a few on the left.
Today there was a tragic shooting at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC. The left are already finding ways to associate this to Rush Limbaugh. There is a very disturbing and disturbed element of political discourse. And I would, I would throw in Rush Limbaugh. Not blaming him, but when you say that our President… Continue reading It’s Rush’s fault, clearly
I blogged the other day about real, actual torture. I said: If you asked me in a survey if this was acceptable treatment of suspected terrorists, I would say no – absolutely 100% not. … And we live in a world where the same term that describes this treatment is used to describe depriving a… Continue reading Stop the Real Torture
From Gateway Pundit. This is real torture. There were gasps in the audience at a press conference by female North Korean defectors in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday when Bang Mi-sun rolled up her black skirt and showed the deep ugly scars in her thighs. The event was part of North Korea Freedom Week. As soon… Continue reading Real Torture
NRT enthuses over a survey that confirms his view of religion. This is scary: according to a poll by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, the more often you go to church, the more likely you are to support torture. Conversely, those who seldom or never attend religious services, and those who classify… Continue reading Torture and Church Attendance
