Getting Off Easy

In his address at the National Cathedral three days after 9/11, President Bush enunciated what has come to be known as the Bush Doctrine: “We make no distinction between terrorists and those who knowingly harbor or provide aid to them.” Yesterday, a Clinton-appointed judge nullified those words and hailed a terrorist’s accomplice as an exemplar of “public service, not only to her clients, but … [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...]

Newsweek’s Victims

The Left’s journalistic jihad against the War on Terror inspired the deaths of 16 Muslims, the injury of at least 100 more, the destruction of numerous Western buildings, and untold hatred for U.S. troops stationed in the Arab world – with a lie. The May 9 issue of Newsweek vouchsafed that a new report issued by the Southern Command (“SouthCom,” which includes Guantanamo Bay) would reveal that, … [Read more...]

Lynne Stewart’s Just Desserts

American jurisprudence and homeland security aligned yesterday, as a jury of her peers found terrorist lawyer-cum-facilitator Lynne Stewart guilty of aiding international Islamist murderers. After 13 days of deliberation, the federal jury found Stewart and her two co-defendants guilty on all counts, including providing material support to terrorists, conspiracy, and defrauding the … [Read more...]

“Charitable” Foundations: ATMs for the Left

One of the unlamented developments of this election year is the Democratic Party’s retreat to the Left. Although the media claim the party's voters have learned their lesson by settling for the “electable” John F. Kerry, a cursory examination of the Democrats shows they remain animated by anti-Bush furor. The party rank-and-file may have decided they prefer the sing-song cadences of John … [Read more...]

Teresa Heinz Kerry: Bag Lady for the Radical Left

With Matt Drudge’s recent revelation that John Kerry is as faithful to his second wife as he was to his old Vietnam “brothers,” the senator’s presidential campaign may depend more than ever on the actions of his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry. While the mainstream media have thus far overlooked the alleged infidelity, media outlets have also overlooked a far more important story: The former Mrs. … [Read more...]

The Ten Most Dishonorable Americans

by Ben Johnson and John Perazzo Americans are a resilient lot. The attacks of September 11th showed, despite progressive urbanization and isolation, Americans pull together when under attack. Those of all political, economic, racial, and religious backgrounds renewed their commitment to the United States and to their fellow countrymen - and their resolve to stand against their common enemies. … [Read more...]

The Hate America Left

Reviewing a book written under your boss' byline is never an easy task, particularly if you are a new hire. This was the first article I wrote after being hired full-time at FrontPage Magazine in mid-January 2003. Today, it reads more than a bit obsequious, even by such standards, but my job was to sell the book. If nothing else, it's an awfully good sales pitch. C'est la vie. -- TRW. At last … [Read more...]
