Plamegate, RIP

Unfortunately for her vanity lawsuit, the “leaker” in the Valerie Plame “scandal” is the one Bush administration official she didn’t sue. According to an article written by Newsweek’s Michael Isikoff’s entitled “The Man Who Said Too Much,” the first person to tell the press that Valerie Plame sent her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, on his preposterous trip to Niger was then-Deputy Secretary … [Read more...]

“No Torture Occurred”

The testimony military investigators offered Wednesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee should have permanently dispelled every pretext the far-Left used to charge American troops at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with abuse. Lt. Gen. Randall “Mark” Schmidt and Brig. Gen. John Furlow’s terse summary – “No torture occurred” – could not more curtly refute the lurid charges contained in years of … [Read more...]

Deflecting Draft Demagoguery

The House Republican leadership decisively quashed a shameful Democratic whisper campaign Tuesday night, voting en masse against a bill that would reinstate the draft. Hoping to put this rumor to rest, House Republicans shot down H.R. 163 by a vote of 402-2. A pair of “liberal” Democrats cast the two affirmative votes. For months, the fever swamps of the Left have claimed President Bush stood … [Read more...]

Editorial: Yale vs. the Military…Again

Yale Law School has once again placed leftist politics above national security. This time, Hillary Clinton’s alma mater has sued Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld to bar military recruiters from campus. Yale’s decree of non-discrimination against gays and lesbians conflicts with Bill Clinton’s bankrupt “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, and Yale would dearly love to ban all military recruiters … [Read more...]
