Torture Blah Blah Blah….
A random, purely unscientific survey of the editorial pages from around the country on Sunday clearly indicate that the infamous “torture memos” are on the minds of the pundits and newspaper talking heads.

Obama Continues To March Toward More American Deaths
The other day I asked a very serious question: How Many Americans Will Die Because of Barack Obama’s Weak National Security Leadership? As I noted at the time and have noted previously, That Obama is sweeping out career intelligence officers is a clear sign he intends to clear out the policies these intelligence officers advocated and implemented — the very same policies that kept us | Read More »
The Victim Ethic and waterboarding…
It seems odd to me that the Obama administration, or any administration, would balk at using a non-lethal method of getting information from suspected terrorists. Yet, for some odd reason, that is what is happening. We know, based on reporting, that waterboarding worked to get information on a large scale terrorist attack on Los Angeles and the Brooklyn Bridge. Yet the left is willing to | Read More »
There Never Were Any ‘180 Waterboardings’
Once again, we see the truth take a back seat to the best spin by Democrats. NRO’s The Corner blog has an exclusive report on the supposed “180 waterboardings” that the US government conducted on terror suspects and it appears that the truth is a bit different than the spin. You see, it seems that there weren’t “180 waterboardings” but were instead 180 “pours.” In | Read More »

LATimes: Obama’s New Muslim Appointment is Hope… for Egyptians?
I will begin this right at the top by saying that I don’t care a whit if the appointment of any American official brings hope to Egyptians. After all, an American official should be concerned with America’s interests not Egypt’s. Not that I am saying that American officials or appointments should necessarily have as a chief criteria for appointment an interest in the denigration of | Read More »
Why I imagine the Left now will oppose leaked intelligence–and re-think torture show trials
Promoted from Diaries – Moe Lane. This is priceless: WASHINGTON – President Obama’s national intelligence director told colleagues in a private memo last week that the harsh interrogation techniques banned by the White House did produce significant information that helped the nation in its struggle with terrorists. “High value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of | Read More »

Obama’s Intel Services More Worried About Right-Wing Terror Than Islamists?
Earlier Moe Lane also covered this, but here is my pile on… On the heels of the odious report by the State of Missouri, recently retracted, focusing on so-called “right-wing terrorism” and implying that every right of center group in American politics is an inch away from being terrorists, now we have a federal agency report doing the same thing. The Department of Homeland Security | Read More »
Using Foreign Aid to Fight Terror in Pakistan
When a country asks for help in developing its economy and fighting terror, what should donor nations do? Should they attach endless and intrusive requirements that not only make it difficult for the aid to have the intended impact, but also impinge on the sovereignity of the receiving nation? This was the question discussed by Ambassador Hussain Haqqani at a recent gathering of American and | Read More »
