Strong Majority See Progress In Iraq

The media is trying to blunt the news that the tide is turning on the Surrendercrats and the SurrenderMedia, but the fact is a new poll shows an ever changing view on Iraq that follows the drop in violence, but with a 4 month delay: By 52 percent to 41 percent, most said the U.S. […]

Military Commanders Running Iran’s “Civilian” Nuclear Program

The idiocy of the NIE continues to reverberate through the media and blogs. Major points about the NIE include the fact it was not a consensus of the intel community and there are dissenters in the career analyst corps who disagree with the key finding of moderate confidence – like the conclusion Iran continues to […]

The Intolerance Of Some Muslims

Published by under All General Discussions

The Islamic religion has its many defects – as do all religions. I am not religious but spiritual – mainly because all religions hold onto some antiquated perceptions I find offensive.

CIA Tape Destruction A Non-Issue, Lawyers Sanctioned Act

Published by under All General Discussions

I feel sorry for the folks on the leftward fringes in this country. They keep thinking they have a smoking gun conspiracy to finally take out Bush and it always fizzles out.

They Maim and Kill, We Pretend To Drown Them

ABC News has a bit of a bombshell interview with an ex-CIA agent who participated in the waterboarding of one of our captured terrorists, Abu Zubaydah. The discussion is frank and doesn’t insult the intelligence with simple platitudes and 1950′s morality. It covers the tough trades we have had to make when faced with possible […]
