Flashback: Obama Wanted a Nuremberg Trial for Osama

When the most finely trained military/intelligence team in America finally killed Osama bin Laden, MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell sent an embarrassingly misspelled tweet that informed the world, “Obama shot and killed.” However, MSNBC inadvertently allowed some truth to slip through its reporting of the assassination. The left-wing network quoted “a senior official in the Obama administration” admitting … [Read more...]

Al-Qaeda’s PR Machine

IF HISTORY IS ANY GUIDE, A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND JIHADISTS. In 2004, after the media published photos of Abu Ghraib and leftist politicians blamed America, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi prefaced his beheading of Nicholas Berg with these words: "we tell you that the dignity of the Muslim men and women in Abu Ghraib and others is not redeemed except by blood and souls. You will not receive … [Read more...]

Prosecuting Bush: On Second Thought….

Some decisions lead to the discerning of the inner thoughts of the heart, and the separation of the bones and marrow. President Obama’s decision Tuesday to open the door to prosecute Bush administration officials who crafted legal opinions he believes led to torture is one of them. His judgment says much about the unsteady future of homeland security, whose voice is heeded in Washington, and … [Read more...]

The New Era of Irresponsibility

Upon hearing that President Obama plans to close Guantanamo Bay within a year, the first thought that occurred to me was: where will terrorists go for their lemon chicken? One detention center librarian has said "a few [detainees] are kind of hooked on" the Harry Potter series; will Obama at least detain them long enough to finish The Deathly Hallows? For that matter, where else will these … [Read more...]

Exchange with Michael Isikoff, Part III

Selective Outrage by Ben Johnson In his critique of our book Party of Defeat Newsweek reporter Michael Isikoff rises to a pitch of moral outrage over our lack of concern for the alleged torture of terrorist Ibn Shaykh al-Libi. This focus is typical of critics of the war who ignore the massive leaks of classified information about America’s national security and domestic counterterrorism … [Read more...]

Our Endangered Patience

The 39th president has been testing our endangered patience by delivering homilettes on any mainstream media outlet that will have him (which is all of them), hawking his newest book, Our Endangered Values: America’s Moral Crisis – this week’s number one New York Times bestseller. In the Left’s latest, lamest appeal to the “values voters” who tipped the 2004 election, Jimmy Carter tells them … [Read more...]

Al Gore’s Alternate Reality

Former "real president" and Current TV owner Al Gore scored a 7 on the MoveOn meter during his remarks in Stockholm, Sweden, yesterday. "If awd been elected president," the former pseudo-centrist croaked, "We would not have invaded a country that did not attack us. We would not have taken money from the working families and given it to the most wealthy families. We would not be trying to … [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...]
