The Justice Department has opened an investigation into the leak of classified information about President Bush's secret domestic spying program, Justice officials said Friday. The officials, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, said the inquiry will focus on disclosures to The New York Times about warrantless surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The idiot left was so aflame with BDS that when notorious liar Joe Wilson "exposed" his wife as a CIA employee, they spun that irrelevant tidbit into charges of revenge against Wilson by the White House for lying about Saddam's attempts to purchase Nigerian yellowcake, and a breach of national security by The White House in "outing a covert CIA operative".
Neither one was true, of course, but that didn't matter to the BDS idiots. It gave them a chance to call themselves patriots by crying crocodile tears for Agent 99.
Now we have the spectacle of anti-Bush NSA and CIA leakers emboldened to the point that they are ladling classified information into front-page headlines in the NYT and WaPo. This is MSM complicity in a campaign by the American intelligence community (the IC) and its friends to sabotage the Bush presidency, plain and simple, the war in Iraq and the war on Islamofascism be damned.
And now the Justice Department is going to investigate. I hope they have the will and means to follow through, because you can't have your major national newspapers giving away classified wartime secrets to Al Qaida and Osama Bin Laden.
Sew The F*** Up
Let's hope more Bush-hating idiots have the courage to step up and employ this creative and satisfyingly ironic mode of expression. I'll do the stitching for free. Or are you all just a bunch of chicken hawks?

So What's The Problem?
By Allah, there I was running across the sand with my AK when my mouth is smashed by an infidel wearing desert camo. He takes me and locks me into a pen about the size of Allah's closet, and Allah was humble, okay? Then I'm shackled into a transport plane with several dozen of my brothers and when we land, we emerge to a cool climate, perhaps only eighty-five degrees, and get put in another pen. No privacy, but the meals are very good and we have all the comforts of home, except that the nights are cold and we can't wage jihad. I miss my jihad. Someone says we are in Cuba, but inFidel would rescue his fellow revolutionaries, wouldn't he?
I don't want to stay here forever because I miss my family and my murderous way of life back home, so I refuse to eat. I'll show these infidel bastards who is arrrgharghgakfulggghhhhmaughckgak.
By Allah, now I feel full.
Maybe I would have been better off wearing a uniform, by Allah. Catch some of that Geneva mojo.
By Allah, I am so sad and full.

Black September Terrorist: Any Israeli Is A Soldier; Let's Kill 'Em All
The Last Word on Spielberg's "Munich"...
...goes to the Palestinian terrorist who organized the 1972 massacre, via Reuters:
The Palestinian mastermind of the Munich Olympics attack in which 11 Israeli athletes died said on Tuesday he had no regrets and that Steven Spielberg's new film about the incident would not deliver reconciliation.
Mohammed Daoud planned the Munich attack on behalf of PLO splinter group Black September, but did not take part and does not feature in the film.
He voiced outrage at not being consulted for the thriller and accused Spielberg of pandering to the Jewish state.
Daoud helpfully explained the philosophy that guided the Munich terrorists, which somehow eluded Spielberg, even though the terrorists have expressed it many times:
Whether a pianist or an athlete, any Israeli is a soldier.
Which is to say that all citizens of Israel are fit subjects for genocide. It seems a bit pointless to make a movie about Palestinian terrorism, and Israel's response to it, without mentioning that inconvenient fact.
You'd think so, but my leftist brothers seem to believe that the Jews will get what's coming to them, whatever that is.

I'll Second That
For its reckless endangerment of national security, unapologetic distortions of our troops' commitment to the mission in Iraq, trashing of 9/11 families who refused to capitulate to political correctness at Ground Zero, routine insipidity and unaccountability, laughable hypocrisy, protectionism for Democrats and liberal pet projects, dishonest Bush-bashing, anti-war pandering, cluelessness by the barrel, narcissism, and skyscraping editorial arrogance and snobbery, I nominate...

I'll second that motion and expand it to include its faithful idiotarian readers.

Why American Muslims Stay Silent
"A terrible blow has been inflicted on the religion of Islam in America by the refusal of the religious “establishment” -- including CAIR, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and other entities -- to abandon and denounce the radical legacy present in their formation and displayed in their long service. They hate Dr. Jasser because he dares to expose their continued devotion to radicalism and their refusal to abide by American norms of religious respect and public dignity. Non-Muslim Americans as well as moderate Muslims must rally to Dr. Jasser and assist him in his just struggle. The Arizona Republic should be commended for providing him a platform, and must stand by its cartoonist, Benson.
"Dr. Jasser’s case illustrates why American Muslims stay silent: because the price of speaking out is immediate, coordinated attack. Sometimes the Wahhabi offensive on American soil is accompanied by physical threats; violence is not excluded. Born Muslims, living “in the community,” seldom came to America expecting to find Islam in this country run by Wahhabis -- to the immigrant, it was inconceivable that such a situation would be permitted in the US. And yet, thanks to the Saudis, it came to pass, and just as President Bush should push the Saudis to quit financing radicalism, ordinary Americans should write groups like CAIR out of the roster of respectability. These are militants with an incurable penchant for intimidation. Their psychological reign of terror in America must end no less quickly than the literal bloodshed brought by their mentors in Iraq."

Merry Christmas To Beloved Family And Friends
Friday, December 23, 2005
Andrew McCarthy explains the Hammadi situation in Thomas Jocelyn's important new blog.
Via NRO, The US Department Of Justice has just hosed down the anti-Bush dogs in the NSA spying issue. And yes, the word is "issue"; there is no "scandal" except in the fever swamp.
Belmont Club on the post-election drawdown plans.
Here's the story of a good samaritan looking out for his fellow Iraqis.
Speaking of which, Saddam's go-to guy for WMDs just got 15 years. It just gets more embarrassing all the time for all those naysayers.
LGF: "It was the perfect illustration of the horrors of the Bushitler Police State." And it was a hoax that, like so many others, got lapped up by the idiots.
For all you Michelle Malkin-haters, Merry Christmas. Also, a voluminous post that puts the NYT through the meatgrinder from several different angles. Bet you can't eat just one!
Please Say You Will
I wish the Democrats well.

Canadian PM Martin Silent On Islamist Candidate's Declaration of "Victory For Islam!"
Liberals bring Islamists one step closer to Parliament
Having won the Liberal nomination for Mississauga-Erindale, Omar Alghabra shouted to the audience, "This is a victory for Islam! Islam won! Islam Won!" He went on to praise how "Islamic power is extending into Canadian politics". His performance was witnessed by hundreds including Rogers Cable, and his theocratic rant was cheered by many in the audience.
These are chilling words to a nation that has been identified as a terrorist target by Osama Bin Laden and has witnessed how "Islamic power is extending" itself into Western democracies through the slaughter of innocents in Madrid, London, New York, Beirut, Netanya, Bali and practically every country in the world. The Islamist declaration of Liberal candidate Omar Alghabra could have come from an al Qaeda mouthpiece.
And the Liberals dare to say that Stephen Harper is scary! I will take my chances with a free vote on same-sex marriage over a Liberal parliamentarian preaching the same expansionist Islamic rhetoric that incites those who will kill and maim innocent Canadians.
Clearly, the lives and values of Canadians are expendable to the Liberal party as long as they have a winning candidate.
Victor Fouad Associate Member, Canadian Coptic Association
Canada's Prime Minister Paul Martin is now officially a dhimmi; in case some of you don't know, that's the Islamist word for "bitch."
And if Paul Martin is Islam's bitch in Canada, then all Canadians are Islam's bitches.
Visions Of Bushitler
It won't come in the same form. It never does. But it's coming. The lure of fascism is too powerful for men like the ones currently pissing all over our Constitution.
Probably won't be the Jews. Maybe Arabs. Maybe gays. Maybe "libruls." Who the fuck knows? It almost certainly won't be recognisable to most people until it's far too late.
If we let it happen.
This woman is an idiot.
And Their Integrity Is MIA And Presumed Dead
"...the rule of thumb seems to be that although it's treasonous for pro-Bush partisans to spill secrets that might embarrass an administration critic, it's a public service for anti-Bush partisans to spill secrets that might embarrass the administration. The determination of which secrets are OK to reveal is, of course, to be made not by officials charged with protecting our nation but by journalists charged with selling newspapers."
Except that the secrets the Bush-haters spill will not put people in Vanity Fair with their lying blowhard spouses; the secrets the Bush-haters spill will wind up killing people.

Vital Presidential Power
Even as federal courts have sought to balance Fourth Amendment rights with security imperatives, they have upheld a president's "inherent authority" under the Constitution to acquire necessary intelligence for national security purposes. (Using such information for criminal investigations is different, since a citizen's life and liberty are potentially at stake.) So Bush seems to have behaved as one would expect and want a president to behave. A key reason the Articles of Confederation were dumped in favor of the Constitution in 1787 was because the new Constitution -- our Constitution -- created a unitary chief executive. That chief executive could, in times of war or emergency, act with the decisiveness, dispatch and, yes, secrecy, needed to protect the country and its citizens.
That is why the president uniquely swears an oath -- prescribed in the Constitution -- to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Implicit in that oath is the Founders' recognition that, no matter how much we might wish it to be the case, Congress cannot legislate for every contingency, and judges cannot supervise many national security decisions.
This will be especially true in times of war.
This is not an argument for an unfettered executive prerogative. Under our system of separated powers, Congress has the right and the ability to judge whether President Bush has in fact used his executive discretion soundly, and to hold him responsible if he hasn't. But to engage in demagogic rhetoric about "imperial" presidents and "monarchic" pretensions, with no evidence that the president has abused his discretion, is foolish and irresponsible.

Jamie: Yes, We Have No Integrity
“The issue here is this: If you’re John McCain and you just got Congress to agree to limits on interrogation techniques, why would you think that limits anything if the executive branch can ignore it by asserting its inherent authority?"
Now let's go down memory lane and see what she had to say about the very same subject whilst testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on July 14, 1994, when it was her boss Bill Clinton asserting his Presidential "inherent authority":
"The Department of Justice believes, and the case law supports, that the president has inherent authority to conduct warrantless physical searches for foreign intelligence purposes and that the President may, as has been done, delegate this authority to the Attorney General.
"It is important to understand, that the rules and methodology for criminal searches are inconsistent with the collection of foreign intelligence and would unduly frustrate the president in carrying out his foreign intelligence responsibilities."
As NRO's Cliff May points out, "Gorelick is making a simple point: The rules are different when there is a Democrat in the White House. What about that don’t you understand?"
UPDATE: Byron York has more on the Democrats' bald-faced lack of integrity.
So does Dick Morris in today's NY Post:
"Equally irresponsible is the criticism Democrats are leveling at President Bush for his use of National Security Agency wiretaps to catch terrorists. Before Clinton and Schumer criticize this policy, they'd do well to reflect on the fact that the Brooklyn Bridge might well be rubble, with thousands dead, if Bush did not use these wiretaps."
More from Everything I Know Is Wrong:
President Jimmy Carter was the first President to put these laws into effect by signing Executive Order 12139 (thanks to Sweetness & Light for the pointer to this Executive Order). I don't remember hearing anyone complaining about it then, even though the terrorism situation was much less dire than it is now.
Read it all- the man's done his homework.
The Leakers and The Times
The most serious legal problems are posed by those who leaked this highly classified national security information to the media, an unauthorized recipient of any classified information. Any NSA or intelligence community official concerned over an intelligence activity has an internal oversight system available to address these concerns in a legal and classified environment: NSA’s internal Inspector General and/or the Intelligence Community’s Inspector General. If the internal oversight process proved insufficient, legislative oversight would have been the next logical place for these officials to take their concerns: congressional oversight committees routinely investigate just those types of concerns in a legal setting designed to preserve classified national security information. Should following this well-established process still not satisfy their concerns, the honorably course of action for any true intelligence professional is to resign from such an untenable position - WITHOUT revealing classified information and potentially damaging national security.
These “concerned” officials have acted extremely unprofessionally: they clearly violated their secrecy oath and the provisions of the 1980 Classified Information Procedures Act by providing classified information to the media. While it may come as a shock to some, the media is NOT entitled to classified information under any circumstances.
Interesting how the NYT and the rest of the MSM was so concerned about finding the sources of the Plame "leaks" and is now not disclosing their own sources. In fact, they are so not disclosing their sources that they sat on the story for a year before using it to derail the renewal of the Patriot Act.
The Times must be investigated by a Special Prosecutor and the leakers and their press enablers tried for their actions.
I doubt it will happen, but it would be just.
John Hinderaker writes at Power Line:
Under the circumstances we face in dealing with the terrorist threat, is it unreasonable--the Constitutional standard--to begin immediately intercepting calls being made to a captured terrorist cell phone, whether those calls originate in the U.S. or another country? Of course not.

More On The NSA Non-Story
ECHELON AND NOW [Mark R. Levin]
Under the ECHELON program, the NSA and certain foreign intelligence agencies throw an extremely wide net over virtually all electronic communications world-wide. There are no warrants. No probable cause requirements. No FISA court. And information is intercepted that is communicated solely between U.S. citizens within the U.S., which may not be the purpose of the program but, nonetheless, is a consequence of the program. ECHELON has been around for some time. The media and members of Congress didn't accuse Bill Clinton, under whose administration the program apparently moved into full swing, of "domestic spying" or violating the Constitution. Is ECHELON constitutional? Congress hasn't defunded it. So, it seems to me this entire current debate, unleashed by the New York Times last week, about expanding the NSA's eavesdropping authority (exactly what is expanded and how, we still aren't certain) is, well, disconnected from reality.
Also from NRO, James S. Robbins has a lesson for the fever swamp about the facts of the laws behind NSA surveillance as opposed to the idiot left's fevered propaganda:
Unwarranted Outrage: The Times blew our cover.
Strata-Sphere takes a comprehensive look at Government Surveillance Since Clinton.
Time for the idiot left to grow up on this whole subject, but then it has long been time for the idiot left to grow up about everything. They won't; they'll go right back to the "Bush is eeevil" thing and it will be business as usual, which is what makes them idiots.
Few bloggers have a more well-rounded discussion of this story than Hugh Hewitt.
Another Victory For The Minutemen
The Nancy: Yes, We Have No Convictions
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said yesterday that Democrats should not seek a unified position on an exit strategy in Iraq, calling the war a matter of individual conscience and saying differing positions within the caucus are a source of strength for the party.
Just to make things perfectly clear, The Pelosian One said this: There is no one Democratic voice . . . and there is no one Democratic position.
Senate Democrats are bogged down in a quagmire without answers or a plan, misleading Americans about how they got there and stubbornly refusing to apologize or declare an exit strategy.
NanceHitler must go!

Bush Serves Notice: Surveillance Operations Will Continue
In the weeks following the terrorist attacks on our nation, I authorized the National Security Agency, consistent with U.S. law and the Constitution, to intercept the international communications of people with known links to al Qaeda and related terrorist organizations. Before we intercept these communications, the government must have information that establishes a clear link to these terrorist networks.
This is a highly classified program that is crucial to our national security. Its purpose is to detect and prevent terrorist attacks against the United States, our friends and allies. Yesterday the existence of this secret program was revealed in media reports, after being improperly provided to news organizations. As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have, and the unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk. Revealing classified information is illegal, alerts our enemies, and endangers our country.
As the 9/11 Commission pointed out, it was clear that terrorists inside the United States were communicating with terrorists abroad before the September the 11th attacks, and the commission criticized our nation's inability to uncover links between terrorists here at home and terrorists abroad. Two of the terrorist hijackers who flew a jet into the Pentagon, Nawaf al Hamzi and Khalid al Mihdhar, communicated while they were in the United States to other members of al Qaeda who were overseas. But we didn't know they were here, until it was too late.
The authorization I gave the National Security Agency after September the 11th helped address that problem in a way that is fully consistent with my constitutional responsibilities and authorities. The activities I have authorized make it more likely that killers like these 9/11 hijackers will be identified and located in time. And the activities conducted under this authorization have helped detect and prevent possible terrorist attacks in the United States and abroad.
The activities I authorized are reviewed approximately every 45 days. Each review is based on a fresh intelligence assessment of terrorist threats to the continuity of our government and the threat of catastrophic damage to our homeland. During each assessment, previous activities under the authorization are reviewed. The review includes approval by our nation's top legal officials, including the Attorney General and the Counsel to the President. I have reauthorized this program more than 30 times since the September the 11th attacks, and I intend to do so for as long as our nation faces a continuing threat from al Qaeda and related groups.
The NSA's activities under this authorization are thoroughly reviewed by the Justice Department and NSA's top legal officials, including NSA's general counsel and inspector general. Leaders in Congress have been briefed more than a dozen times on this authorization and the activities conducted under it. Intelligence officials involved in this activity also receive extensive training to ensure they perform their duties consistent with the letter and intent of the authorization.
This authorization is a vital tool in our war against the terrorists. It is critical to saving American lives. The American people expect me to do everything in my power under our laws and Constitution to protect them and their civil liberties. And that is exactly what I will continue to do, so long as I'm the President of the United States.

The Thing That Never Happened
So where does it play in the New York Times? Nowhere.
Where does it play in the Washington Post? Nowhere.
Any leftist idiots care to bitch about MSM bias?
UPDATE: Read Austin Bay. NYT, WAPO and the LA Times have all weighed in, in typically negative fashion. The good news is that it will all be on the record.
How The New York Times Sells Books
Ed Morrissey's steadying voice:
One has to bounce around the article to put this together, in typical NYT fashion, but the core of the issue is this: the NSA and the administration defined international communications as including those where one end -- and one end only -- occurs in the US. Anything else still requires a warrant, as the Times acknowledges. Moreover, this effort did not take place in darkness. The FISA court did get informed of the issue, and the leaders of the oversight committees in both houses of Congress from both parties took part in the decision. It does not appear that the Bush administration sought to hide this from the other two branches of government, but sought to include them in the oversight of the new process as much as possible within the secrecy needed to conduct the program during wartime.

Saddam would still be in power, rape rooms would still be open, his sadistic sons would still be terrorizing people, he would still be getting money from the corrupt Oil For Food scandal, he would still be amassing parts and supplies for his WMD programs, families of Palestinian suicide bombers would still be getting $25,000 from the Iraqi treasury, there would still be Al-Queda camps in northern Iraq and AQ members being given shelter, and the Iraq people would not be out voting today to have a say in their future.

Israeli General: Saddam's WMDs Went To Syria
Stoll notes that "An official at the Iraqi embassy in Washington, Entifadh Qanbar, said he believed the Israeli general's account, but that the Iraqi government is 'basically operating in the dark' because it does not have its own intelligence agency."
Stoll goes on to point out, "An article in the Fall 2005 Middle East Quarterly reports that in an appearance on Israel's Channel 2 on December 23, 2002, Israel's prime minister, Ariel Sharon stated, 'Chemical and biological weapons which Saddam is endeavoring to conceal have been moved from Iraq to Syria.' The allegation was denied by the Syrian government at the time as "completely untrue," and it attracted scant American press attention, coming as it did on the eve of the Christmas holiday."
The Dentist of Damascus' word being what it is, the probability of Saddam's WMDs resting comfortably in Syria cannot yet be dismissed.
Blogs For Bush presents this list of articles on the WMD-in-Syria story:
"Of course, we've reported on evidence reaching the same conclusion for a long time now:
What David Kay Said That The Left Won’t Tell You,
More Weapons of Mass Destruction Reportedly Found in Iraq
WMD Found In Iraq Twice This Month
Duelfer: 'A lot of material left Iraq and went to Syria'
Russia tied to Iraq's missing arms
The Russians Took Iraq's WMDs
Where Did The WMDs Go?
...So I'm not counting on anything to be done about this news yet. Considering the ample amount of advanced notice Saddam had prior to the liberation of Iraq, it is certainly reasonable to suspect that WMDs were effectively hidden in Iraq and/or moved out of the country, particularly to Syria... Why nothing has been done to prove or disprove the 'WMDs were moved to Syria' theory is beyond me..."
"IslamoNazi Would Be More Accurate"
Now antiwar idiots can gain valuable insight into the nature of our newest enemy, Islamofascists, with whom we are at war, by reading R. James Woolsey's NRO article, The Elephant in the Middle East Living Room: Watching Wahhabis.
Antiwar idiots should note that NRO is a Friendly Place For Special Learners and encourages mouthing of words and reading out loud.

The latest McCain Amendment is the case in point.
This is good grist, from The Corner at NRO:
LIEBERMAN'S "SCHTICK" [Jonah Goldberg ]
Sam Rosenfeld has a revealing post about Joe Lieberman over at Tapped. He uses words like "antics" and "schtick" to describe Lieberman's position on the war, suggesting -- though not quite saying -- that Lieberman's views amount to superficial or frivlous self-aggrandizing gamesmanship. This is interesting for a couple reasons. First, most conservatives I know considered Lieberman's behavior as Gore's VP to be the real schtick. He held a fire sale on positions he had for years in order to toe the line.
Moreover, the liberal-left's discussion of Lieberman tracks very closely the sorts of conversations conservatives often have about McCain while liberals salute McCain as a heroic statesman of pure principle. Isn't it interesting how perceptions of mavericks mirror each other?
Except Lieberman is right. The idiot left may label him a "maverick", but that reflects on the left, not on Lieberman.
McCain's thinking reflects on McCain.

Politely Eliminating Israel
The left has this thing about the purity and sanctity of the United Nations. They love this institution-turned-gangsters'-nest as if its members were embarked on great missions and had great wells of good will awaiting them around the world. This even holds for the likes of Robert Mugabe and Iran's President ActMadInJihad, the latter having just pronounced the Holocaust "myth". I can't imagine a more base defamation of that word, but he is after all a fascist, and that's what fascists do with the truth: they twist it into a cruel irony and then use it to justify slaughter and genocide. Why? Because that's what fascism is always about.
Today, fascist leaders use the tattered remnants of the U.N.'s legitimacy as a front for their dream of ridding the world of Israel. Israel is anathema to fascism; it was born out of the fires of a worldwide war against that very evil, has since repelled every attack by it, and now finds it necessary to face it down once again by challenging the authority of the U.N. in its flirtations with Iran. There is clearly an anti-Israeli culture emanating from within the U.N., and I'm glad Pipes has shone his light on it.

Saddam Hussein loyalists who violently opposed January elections have made an about-face as Thursday's polls near, urging fellow Sunni Arabs to vote and warning al Qaeda militants not to attack.
In a move unthinkable in the bloody run-up to the last election, guerrillas in the western insurgent heartland of Anbar province say they are even prepared to protect voting stations from fighters loyal to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, leader of al Qaeda in Iraq.

There has been a major fuel depot explosion in England.
Always read Michael Yon. Always.
The Koswits are frothing at Joe Lieberman's honesty. Good.
Having blown Marine-HawkMan Murtha's credibility on Iraq like a dime-bag of bottlerockets, the Dems are now rolling out Daniel Inouye to pimp for the Dems' Hawk Squad.
Ain't gonna work.
Inouye says the ad seeks to "distract the American people from the problems in Iraq." Actually, of course, there is no chance the American people will forget that there are problems in Iraq, since nearly every news report about the country focuses exclusively on those problems. What Inouye wants is for all the news to be bad all the time, and for the Republicans to refrain from pointing out that in fact, notwithstanding the problems, we are not losing in Iraq. We are winning. It is not defeat in Iraq the Democrats fear, it is victory. They are scared to death that it is happening before their eyes.
And The Prize Goes To...
He busted the A.Q. Khan nuclear network, convinced Mohammar Khadafi to turn over his nuke program to America's tender mercies, stopped Saddam's nuclear program in its tracks and put Pakistani nukes under reliable controls. But instead of George W. Bush, the Nobel Peace Prize goes to International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Mohamed ElBaradei, for endlessly diddling the Iranian regime in Chamberlainian fashion, to no-one's comfort.
The Face Of Iraq's Insurgency
The terrorist known as "the Butcher of Ramadi" was detained today, turned in by local citizens in the provincial capital of Iraq's Anbar province, U.S. military officials in Iraq reported.

Infighting Weasels For Surrender

This has been shaping up for some time: Drudge reports that the Rethuglicans are going after the White Flag Democrats with their own words. And who can blame the Rethuglicans? If the White Flag Democrats will surrender to Zarqawi, they will also submit to the Will Of The Rovian One. And that will not be pretty, because The Rovian One's eyes emit beams that destroy all who snivel.

Saddam's Iraq Speaks
From NRO's Corner:
SADDAM’S TRIAL [Cliff May]
Some excerpts from the testimony of Ahmed Hassan Mohammed:
“There were mass arrests. Women and men. Even if a child was 1-day-old, they used to tell his parents, ‘Bring him with you.” … There were “random arrests in the streets …”
“I saw corpses and bodies of our neighbors. … Some of them we couldn’t even recognize their bodies.”
"I saw women being tortured… My brother was given electric shocks while my 77-year-old father watched. They told us, 'why don't you confess, you will be executed anyway.'”
"I swear by God I walked by a room and on my left I saw a grinder with blood coming out of it and human hair underneath."
“…a woman told a guard that her infant baby needed milk or he would die. He died and the guard threw him from the window. … Pregnant women gave birth in the prison. Their babies died.’”
Now I know none of this is as newsworthy as the possibility that someone slipped an Iraqi editor $100 to run an op-ed. Still I do hope it merits some time on CBS/ABC/NBC/PBS etc.
And still, anti-war idiots will claim Bush had no business removing Saddam from power. Or that America didn't have the support of its so-called "allies", the ones who were busy fucking us through Oil For Food. Or that it should have been done this way rather than that. Or that the troops should be brought home because they can't win against a few thousand walking dead mice. Or...or...or... anything but relief that Iraqis' voices can now be heard in service to bringing this monster to justice.
Despite the wave of horrors yet to be chronicled (although they won't be well covered by the MSM), I anticipate few conversions amongst anti-war idiots on the road through Saddam's trial; anyone who calls Bush a criminal and scoffs at Iraq as the front in the war against Islamofascism has neither the brains nor the character to see the cruelty of such ignorance; they're too busy hating George W. Bush for anything they can think of.
Kerry, Pelosi, Dean, Murtha, Reid pander to that ignorance and hatred every day, and leftist idiots take the bate every time.

John F'n Kerry, Pathological Liar - Part Two
And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the--of--the historical customs, religious customs. Whether you like it or not...
It should not be thought an aside to note that Bob Schieffer, CBS' Rather-replacement antiwar shill, let Kerry's accusations drift out into the ether without so much as asking for a clarification.
Kerry's continued lies about the war, the American troops and his own part in the left's campaign to force surrender in Iraq used to anger me, but no longer. Rather I am encouraged that Kerry is doing his level best to prove himself such a blatant liar and ruthless opportunist that he may prove to be even more a problem for the Democrats in '08 than he was in '04.
Democrat Party Chair-Idiot Howard Dean affirms that John F'n Kerry isn't the only problem child in the Democrats' camp: he has just surrendered to the terrorists in Iraq.
So now we have the spectacle of the Democrats completely imploding- their old token Marine Murtha, whom they ceaselessly remind us is their biggest "hawk", wants to cut and run as he always does, their erstwhile 2004 Presidential nominee, who acheived notoriety by accusing troops in Vietnam of behaving like Genghis Khan, accuses today's troops of terrorism and their party chairman has announced that the troops can't win in Iraq and must therefore be brought home.
Curiously, this is all happening at the same time the 9/11 Commission is warning Americans that the terrorist threat grows ever worse. Who can tell what the fuck these fools are going to say next?
If this is the Democrats' idea of a co-ordinated attack on the Bush doctrine in Iraq, it's a laugher. If it's something else I'd sure like to know about it.
I Love The Opinion Journal
-In 'Truth Speaking to Power'(no link; scroll down)Gary Hart joins the revolving list of John F'n Kerry enablers; the cut-and-run crowd call for absolute surrender;
-'It Is Unclear Whether the Anonymous Quotes Are Authentic' - the LA Times' treatment of the Iraq media-propaganda story reflects its own considerable immersion in that black art;
-The MoveOn Coverup has much the same effect as the LAT piece, revealing the willingness of the left to employ the very tactics it dishonestly ascribes to the Right. F***ing hypocrites all, as I've correctly pointed out before. And so justice prevails for these hateful miscreants.
-Terrorists Are Such Ingrates! Four anti-war idiots stand to lose their lives to Islamofascist murderers in the propaganda war raging in and emanating from Iraq, and all the usual suspects are actually blaming Dubya.
There's more, so read it all or you're not doing your homework.

You Can't Trump Reality
The problem with using words to trump reality is that it wagers everything on a monumental bluff. The mesmerist must carry all before him or be humiliated. A King must be obeyed or lose the throne. There is no middle ground. Personally I think the repeated conjury of the master-spell of 'Vietnam' and the endless repetition of "we have been defeated" is a strained attempt to achieve what used to be accomplished effortlessly; almost as a background process. Now the spell is being used altogether too often to be convincing, like a lion-tamer who must repeatedly shout at the mountain of snarling flesh before him to sit down. One of the characteristics of the collapse of an illusion is the suddenness with which it comes. The Soviet Union; the EU superstate; the notion of an advanced, enlightened and progressive France, were like Atlantis separated from glory and oblivion by a single night and day. I would be careful about Vietnam because the '60s, like Vaudeville, may never come again.
Reality trumps anti-war lies every single day. As Democrat Senator Joseph Lieberman points out, Iraqis will prevail.
Monday Night Football From The Green Zone
INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts, seeking to silence critics who say they are overrated, fell short of that mark on Monday night by outscoring the Pittsburgh Steelers by a mere 3-point margin in the first quarter.
...The Steelers were even stronger in the final period, holding the Colt juggernaut to a mere three points. “I think Indianapolis was just in the wrong game, at the wrong place at the wrong time,” one Colt critic was heard to say.
Final score: Colts 26, Steelers 7.

Paul Murdoch Architects Refuses To Kill Monument to 9/11 Murderers
Rawls' exposé seems to prove that Paul Murdoch Architects dishonestly insists on expressing fealty to Islamofascism rather than honestly honoring the memory of the forty passengers who died on Flight 93. So, the four pieces of garbage responsible for their murders are still honored by this piece of garbage.
