I agree with Laura and Liz both that Eric Holder’s Dept. of Justice should be required to disclose the names of the lawyers who formerly worked for the defense of the detainees, yet now are working in the DOJ and will now be involved in the prosecution of these detainees, should they ever be brought to American soil. This cannot stand.
Tonight on O’Reilly, Sens. Lindsey Graham & Joe Lieberman discussed their amendment to the current war-funding bill, that would prohibit the release of the thousands of photos of alleged detainee abuse at detention facilities overseas. O’Reilly calls Pelosi and Barney Frank out for their willingness to put our soldiers’ lives on the line to appease their liberal, bed-wetting, peace-at-any-price constituents in their respective districts.
The release of these photos will be a win/lose situation. A win for the Islamofascists and a lose for western nations that have taken up the mantle to battle them. I hope the Graham/Lieberman amendment stays in the bill. Please call your elected representatives and tell them you will accept nothing less. The lives of American troops are at stake.
Today on Meet the Press, Gingrich and Durbin debated about the Gitmo conundrum and what to do about the terrorist detainees. Here’s a portion of the transcript:
FMR. REP. NEWT GINGRCH, (R-GA): Well, let, let me start with, first of all, it was Secretary of State Colin Powell who also talked about weapons of mass destruction, so this is not a Cheney problem. The fact is every member of the American government senior leadership believed in the intelligence they were getting at the time. And the question comes right down to, as Vice President Cheney said this week, what’s your highest priority? Is it to defend America and protect American lives, or is it to find some way to defend terrorists and to get terrorists involved in the criminal justice system? I can’t imagine–given the fact, for example, that we just picked up four terrorists in New York who had been converted in prison, I can’t imagine–the director of the FBI has said don’t put these terrorists in prisons because there’ll be an active threat to convert other people. The fact is these, these terrorists–we’re now down to the worst of the worst. These are the–the Bush administration released over 500 people. One out of every seven actually went back to war against us and is out actively trying to kill Americans today. So I would be very cautious. I think the president made a very big mistake. It was a campaign promise, it is not a national security plan. I think, frankly, they should keep Guantanamo open. Whatever the, whatever things that are wrong at Guantanamo they would fix by moving them to somewhere else, fix them at Guantanamo.
Well, well, well…. a very dear friend has been plucked for a spot on Brit Hume’s Grapevine segment for today. I was going to excise it to show it on its own, but the Grapevine today was all fantastic all the way to the final segment – just makes my friend in that much better company.
Jay, this one is for you, my friend! CONGRATS! Watch the Grapevine here.
Reknowned racist Prof. Kambon was shown on Hannity & Colmes tonight, talking about the necessity to exterminate all white people. For the sake of sanity, the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson was on as a guest, and was the only one to respond, as, of course, Prof. Camden refused to come on the show to respond.
Isn’t it amazing that people like this still exist, and worse, are still allowed to be professors in our institutions of higher learning? No wonder we’re churning out a batch of peace-at-any-price idiots who believe nothing is worth fighting for – except the summary execution of all whites and capitalists.
