Our Gitmo policy is right: Part 2

Posted by: ST on July 31, 2005 at 11:49 pm » 3 Comments

Wrote verrrry early this morning about Jimmy Carter’s on-foreign-soil comments about how our Gitmo policy was "disgraceful."  He also took the opportunity to describe the Iraq war as "unnecessary and unjust."  Jeff Goldstein had bang-on post today that took Carter to task for his statements: So, for my part, I’m going to continue saying so—in […]

 

It wasn’t enough

It wasn’t enough that outraged Muslims (via CAIR) successfully lobbied to get Michael Graham taken off the air at WMAL.    Now a group of local Muslims in Denver are calling for US Rep. Tom Tancredo to be removed from office: Local Muslims aren’t satisfied with an apology from U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo about his remarks […]

The ‘Privacy Clause’?

Patterico links up to an interview with Senators Christopher Dodd (D-Conn) and Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) from Fox News, as posted at the Washington Post’s blog.  Seems Senator Dodd has found a new clause in the Constitution (emphasis added by me): The open-ended question for us clearly is what are his views about some of the basic […]

 

WashPost: Condi is different than Powell

… and they subtly imply that that’s a good thing, which is interesting, given their constant praise of Colin Powell when he was Sec. of State.   Powell, by many in the liberal media and many on the left, was considered a "Maverick" during the administration (remember: Maverick to the media=any public figure [especially a Republican] […]

 

Over There – The MilBlog reaction

Posted by: ST on July 31, 2005 at 12:50 pm » Comments Off

It’s not very favorable.  Greyhawk has a roundup of MilBlog reactions.  In a related post, he mentions an LA Times piece where 5 out of 6 LA Times staffers said the show’s characters "look real." Here’s the show’s website, if you’re interested. Evening update:   Leopold Stotch at OTB says: I didn’t catch the show, but […]

A Marine has a farewell dinner with his family before heading off to Iraq and a kind stranger picks up the tab.  Peenie Wallie has more. I love this country. Hat tip: Michelle Malkin.

 

World opinion of US changing?

I missed this opinion column written by Max Boot earlier in the week.  In it, he cites an opinion poll by the Pew Global Attitudes Project.  Here’s more: The public opinion poll was conducted by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, hardly a bastion of neocon zealotry. (It’s co-chaired by Madeleine Albright.) Over the last three […]

 

How do we know our Gitmo policy is right?

Posted by: ST on July 31, 2005 at 12:39 am » 16 Comments

Because Jimmy Carter says it’s "disgraceful" (on foreign soil, I should add). Captain Ed delivers a smackdown of Carter’s comments: But even beyond the folly of Carter’s assertions, the fact that he decided to attack the military and the American administration while abroad marks him as particularly despicable. He went to the soil of our strongest ally […]

 

Comments feature should be back to normal

Posted by: ST on July 29, 2005 at 6:15 pm » Comments Off

I hope anyway! Earlier today, I had to recreate a couple of comments that were posted because they went straight into the Spam Karma delete file – that was my fault as I didn’t have the thing configured (I’m VERY new to configuring Word Press plugins). Luckily, I had the emails saved as I receive […]
