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.
This evening on Special Report, the panel discussed the psychotic acrobats of Nancy Pelosi on what she knew and when she knew it. She achieved special Gold medal status (and a big red round target on her back) when she said the CIA lied consistently to her and to Congress.
Oh, REALLY, Nancy? Hmmm… you should have some fun in these coming months. As I’ve said before – our CIA can go to foreign countries and completely destroy governments and regimes without batting an eye. You think they’re going to take kindly to you calling them liars?
The Intelligence Community lying to Congress is a federal crime. Bitch you better be ready to testify, cause your ass is going down in FLAMES!
Here is a partial transcript of Krauthammer’s brilliant observation:
“Her news conference today was an utter disaster. She was nervous. She was shifty. Her syntax was incomprehensible. There were times when she had to refer to her original statement because she couldn’t remember what her current â€˜truthâ€™ was.
According to new guidelines, acts of terror are now called “Man-Caused Disasters,” and the global war on terror is now called “Overseas Contingency Operations.” Come on folks, does anybody really believe this is going to make other countries love us anymore; but more importantly, will it make them FEAR us as they rightly should?
The Obama administration is causing America to become so pussified that it should frighten us all. A weak America is akin to the primary domino being tipped, which causes the rest of the chain of dominoes to fall with unchecked wild abandon. That, my friends, is a truly unsettling and scary proposition which we must all now face. Why? Because We the People fail to gather successfully to stand tall against this treasonous government and make it defend its people against enemies both foreign and domestic.
Our most merciful Jesus, our Lord and Saviour, please steer us clear of this impending doom. Carry us within Your spirit to a place of safety and comfort, and let us not fall in to the false-complacency of the cowardice appeasers.
Check out this hilarious send-up from SNL last weekend. This is a skit involving actors portraying Sen. Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Let’s see how long this one will stay up. You all know what happened the LAST time some of tried to put those clips up.
I’ll just use three little letters to explain, trying not to draw attention to myself. S.N.L.
