The Case for Waterboarding

An article at Frontpage Magazine makes the case. Many on the left, always fond of making moral equivalence “arguments”, wish to compare the limited coercive interrogation of terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to the brutal torture of political dissidents by totalitarian regimes such as that of Saddam Hussein or the old Soviet Union. (Here is …

NY Times cherry-picks Iraq intel in NIE

So no surprise, the NY Times cherry-picked the intel they received via leak from the CIA to present the public with the most anti-war/anti-Bush slant they could manage. The actual NIE, partially declassified today by the Bush administration, does not support the “Iraq made terrorism worse” spin from the Times and in fact can be …

Bill Clinton goes wild on FOX

It would do little good at this point to rehash the Clinton record on terrorism, especially given the almost impossible task of avoiding the introduction of hindsight into the analysis. Let’s just say the record is mixed. Overall, Mr. Clinton made a good case this morning on Fox News Sunday defending his record responding to …

More Democrats being “Theocrats”

Whenever a conservative mentions his religious faith, or gives any hint that his public policy positions are in any way informed by his personal values, he is likely to be accused of being a theocrat by someone on the left.

Two devastating critiques of the laughable Senate Intelligence Committee report on Iraq

Christopher Hitchens: Saddam’s Man in Niger To summarize: The Senate report gives two versions of Zahawie’s name without ever once mentioning his significant background. It takes at face value his absurd claim about the supposedly innocent motive for his out-of-the-way trip. It accepts similarly bland assurances made by the government of Niger. It is unaware …

Washington Post editorial twists Bush position on interrogation

The Washington Post has a grossly disingenuous editorial today, titled “A Defining Moment for America” The subhead: “The president goes to Capitol Hill to lobby for torture.” PRESIDENT BUSH rarely visits Congress. So it was a measure of his painfully skewed priorities that Mr. Bush made the unaccustomed trip yesterday to seek legislative permission for …
