Crowder on Gitmo

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

Geneva Conventions’ myths strike again

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

Obama Changing a lot Less than You’d Think

Obama says he’s going to restore America’s place in the world. It doesn’t sound like his plan for Gitmo is going to do that. Mr Obama, who is due to be inaugurated as US president on 20 January, has repeatedly promised to close the camp, where some 250 inmates remain. Well, even Bush wanted to… Continue reading Obama Changing a lot Less than You’d Think

Defending the War On Terror

Patterico has an excellent letter written by Attorney General Mukasey to John Conyers, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. It’s good. I understand that you and some of your colleagues disagree with the interrogation policies that the Executive Branch has chosen to use in defending our Nation fiom another terrorist attack in the six and… Continue reading Defending the War On Terror

No suspension of Habeas Corpus

From Patterico, a post on Justice Scalia’s dissent in the recent Guantanamo detainees case. But here is a starting taste, along with the ending paragraph (note how Scalia conspicuously declines to write “I respectfully dissent” as is the usual custom for Justices): “Today, for the first time in our Nation’s history, the Court confers a… Continue reading No suspension of Habeas Corpus

The Left Sure Does Have ’em

And the myth continues… The Associated Press is up to their usual tricks with this one. According to our post back on March 20, 2004, Yee was certainly not exonerated or cleared; the charges were dropped, according to Maj. Gen. Geoffrey D. Miller, commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, because there were “national security concerns… Continue reading The Left Sure Does Have ’em

It’s In the Constitution!

The ACLU is now fighting for your right to get infected. As with terrorism cases, the whole “held without charge” bollocks is applied by the irrational left.

Guantanamo – Even the Left thinks they’re pushovers

No Right Turn publishes a letter from someone in Guantanamo. Oops.  That sound you hear is the “gulag” claim flying out the window. See, in a real gulag there are no letters. No attorneys, no visitors of any kind. You work from before dawn to after dusk under constant beatings and little food. But I… Continue reading Guantanamo – Even the Left thinks they’re pushovers

Gitmo Reporting – “Alice in Wonderland”

Newsbusters writer Mark Finkelstein interviews Charles “Cully” Stimson, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Detainee Affairs: Observed Stimson: “We’ve had over 2,000 journalists visit Gitmo. People who go and see it for themselves realize it’s almost Alice in Wonderland – down is up and up is down. The caricature of Guantanamo is exactly the opposite… Continue reading Gitmo Reporting – “Alice in Wonderland”
