Kudos Mr. President

    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 »

    Terror Trial Disaster, But Holder’s DoJ Pleased?

    In what has turned out to have been a farce of a trial, a trial meant to prove a political point and having nothing to do with justice, terrorist Ahmed Ghailani was convicted on one count of conspiracy to commit murder, and could receive 20 years to life. The jury found the verminous terrorist not guilty of the remainder of the 280 charges, including all | Read More »

    Citing National Security, Law Enforcement Officials Stand with Coats

    Dan Coats’ television ad ‘Judgment’ has been on the air for almost a week and campaign momentum continues to grow. Today, we’re pleased to announce the launch of the Dan Coats for Indiana Law Enforcement Coalition. Citing national security as a top issue, over 100 members of the law enforcement community including sheriffs, patrol officers and prosecutors have joined together to support Dan’s candidacy for | Read More »

    Ellsworth’s Gitmo Flip-Flop-Flip

    National security has become a front burner issue in the U.S. Senate race after the release of ‘Judgment’ – Dan Coats’ first television ad of the fall campaign season. In the ad, and on the road this week, Dan has been discussing the contrast between his vigilance and record of service and incumbent Congressman Brad Ellsworth’s dangerously naïve national security record. Visiting with veterans at | 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”

    John McCormack of the Weekly Standard this morning called ‘Judgment’ – Dan Coats’ first television commercial of the general election cycle – a “smart ad” and “one that other candidates might want to copy.” The Associated Press added Dan is “playing up his experience abroad [as ambassador to Germany] and criticizing his Democratic opponent in his first general election television ad.” They continue, “Coats also | Read More »

    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. The “‘zounds” (which, by the way and in case you ever wondered, is short for ‘God’s wounds’) is not quite sardonic, | Read More »

    Four Reporters Ejected from Gitmo Hearing after Revealing Name of Protected Witness

    Four journalists were ejected from a military commission pre-trial hearing for alleged terrorist and Guantanamo Bay detainee Omar Khadr after reporting the name of a protected witness and one-time interrogator, the Pentagon acknowledged Thursday. “We threw some people out there today because they disclosed the identity of a protected witness,” said Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell. “He had been clearly identified as someone who needed | Read More »

    But, But, But…Obama Said They Would Love Us

    We’ve been hearing for awhile from the statists (Obama, Holder, Brennan, and the other miserable cretins in the administration) about how eeeevil and rotten those nasty ol’ military tribunals were. We were told that we needed to show the world how wonderful our criminal justice system was when dealing with terrorists. It was how we could close Gitmo because, as we’ve been told, holding terrorists | Read More »

    Administration cuts and runs on NYC KSM trial.

    (H/T: @andylevy) Amazing what one Senatorial election can do. Like, say, make a Presidential administration pay attention to local political concerns for a change. The Obama administration has abandoned its plan to put Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, on trial in Lower Manhattan, according to administration officials. The reversal marks the latest setback for an administration that has | Read More »

    ‘Regime,’ is it?

    The lack of self-respect in the Obama administration astounds me, sometimes.  From the (probably-now abortive) pushback on the call to shut down repatriating AQ terrorists to Yemen: “I am aware of a lot of people pointing back at the way the transfers were handled under the Bush administration that apparently they have some concerns about that,” said the official, who had not seen the senators’ | Read More »
