Former John Kerry staffer John Kiriakou arrested for blowing CIA agents’ cover.

    Mind you, you wouldn’t know that from the Washington Post’s article on the arrest of John Kiriakou. While the Washington Post – from appearances, somewhat reluctantly – reported that Kiriakou (a former CIA officer and Senate Foreign Affairs staffer) had been arrested for revealing names, operations and investigations to the media back in 2008-2009, the paper completely neglected to mention who Kiriakou ended up working | Read More »

    The Devil Made Obama Do It

    Re: Gitmo. The new spin is that the Republicans made him follow Bush’s policies. – An excuse for everything but . . . Can there be anything to this? Remember Reagan’s deficits were accompanied by loud cries in the establishment media about how necessary for him to “compromise and cooperate” with the Democrats in Congress. In his time, the Democrats controlled the House and also | Read More »

    Somehow the wrath of Al Qaeda, and other extremists was based on the United States, who “for no reason” invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, and was actively grabbing innocent Muslims, and throwing them in a U.S. operated “torture” facility in Cuba. I guess 9/11 must be just a forgotten crisis that was “wasted” to Obama and the left. (Mr. Obama, Rahm Emanual would not be happy with you disregarding his advice on how to use a crisis. Shame, shame, you should have known better. . .)

    Obama administration caves on indefinite detention.

    They’re readying an executive order right now that will confirm that certain detainees – read: the murderous, terrorist scum that we already weren’t releasing – can be continued to be held indefinitely without trial.  The fig leaf here is that the new proceedings (unlike those of the wicked, wicked Bush administration!) will be ‘more adversarial’ – which means whatever you want it to mean, of | Read More »

    A ‘Witness’ Takes the Stand

    This afternoon, incumbent Congressman Ellsworth plans to enlist a leading advocate for the rights of terrorists to defend moving Guantanamo detainees to U.S. soil in a conference call with reporters. But before we get to that, let’s re-cap the past few days. On Friday, Dan Coats released a “smart ad” titled ‘Judgment’ contrasting Congressman Brad Ellsworth’s dangerously naïve record on national security with Dan’s vigilance | Read More »

    “Smart Ad”

    Gitmo is not going anywhere.

    ‘Zounds (Via Hot Air Headlines): Stymied by political opposition and focused on competing priorities, the Obama administration has sidelined efforts to close the Guantánamo prison, making it unlikely that President Obama will fulfill his promise to close it before his term ends in 2013.
