Judging the case for war

The Chicago Tribune has a long editorial up, titled, “Judging the case for war“, that, um, judges the case for war in Iraq. Though one could quibble with a few of their conclusions – for example they make too little of Saddam’s ties to al Qaeda and make too much of alleged implications by the …

“There is no connection between Iraq and the global war on terror”

Since before the war of liberation in Iraq began, the anti-war left has been adamant in its assertions that Iraq had nothing to do with al Qaeda, or the global war against islamist terrorism. We noted a column last month by Richard Cohen in the Washington Post in which he summarized this view: What’s more, …

Another Democrat preaches theocracy

In an ongoing series, we note again that many liberals’ claims that they’re against religion in politics are a fraud – they’re not against religion in politics, they’re against conservatives in politics. While they reserve special venom for more traditional Judeo-Christian ideas — any conservative who makes any sort of public value judgment is in …

Dover, PA and “Intelligent Design”

Ramesh Ponnuru helpfully gets to the bottom line on the Dover, PA “intelligent design” decision handed down today, which found the mention of ID in public school to be unconstitutional: I’ve read about 40% of the decision, and it appears, with the exception of a few foolish passages, to be a plausible–though perhaps not the …

Democrats suddenly want to strictly adhere to the Constitution? Since when?

Patterico has an interesting quote from the LA Times: ONE OF THE PERKS OF being commander in chief is that you get to edit the Constitution, even the Bill of Rights, from time to time. That is in essence the legal justification offered by the Bush administration for its authorization of a secret program to …

President tries to defend America from terrorists, some Democrats call for impeachment

We’ve stayed away from the whole NSA/spying on Americans story for the most part, because few facts are available and we are not experts in all the legal questions that are in play. What is known? Very little. What sort of communications were intercepted? Who were the participants in these communications? The public and the …

Colin Powell: Intel doubts not shared with administration

This seems to be a pretty important assertion from Colin Powell. In an interview by the BBC, Powell says that any doubts the U.S. intel community had about Iraq’s WMD programs were not shared with the Bush administration before the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. Via Captain’s Quarters (via Mark in Mexico): THE US …

Senator Specter: obviously inappropriate

Via Yahoo News: “There is no doubt that this is inappropriate,” declared Republican Sen.

NY Times again leaks national security secrets

Where are all the liberals who are outraged by Robert Novak mentioning Valerie Plame’s name, as once again the NY Times leaks top secret information in disregard of U.S. national security interests? Michelle Malkin has a great roundup of reaction to this exposé of yet another attempt by the Bush Administration to protect Americans from …

DeMSM Patriot Games

The Senate Democrats have successfully, at least for now, blocked reauthorization of the Patriot Act by filibuster. What they’re doing, quite simply, is playing politics with our national security. The ABC News website reports the story beginning with this headline: Senate Rejects Reauthorization of USA Patriot Act; White House, Frist Oppose Temporary Extension CNN begins …
