Honor our Vets by Prosecuting Traitors
suffer through more terrorism. He has greatly weakened our defenses.
We have to bring Snowden and his collaborators to justice. If the Obama Administration is serious about bringing NSA traitor Edward Snowden to justice, it will detain and question his handler, columnist Glenn Greenwald, when Greenwald is scheduled to make a trip to the United States to speak at an Islamic event in California this Saturday. Greenwald is an American citizen but lives in Brazil with his homosexual lover. His scheduled appearance in the U.S. is an opportunity to detain, question, and charge him.
Remember that Snowden has already been charged with violating the Espionage Act, as well as theft of government property (18 U.S.C. 641) and the unauthorized communication of national defense information (18 U.S.C. 793 d).
Section 798 of the Espionage Act absolutely prohibits the publication of classified information in the area of communications intelligence. That would include programs of the NSA. The law does not include a loophole for journalists to violate the law.
Should self-described reporters and columnists be above the law and allowed to make it easier for the enemy to kill us?
Greenwald proudly accepted an award named after Soviet agent I.F. Stone. During one of his appearances at a Communist conference, he said the weakening of America is a "very good thing."
The response to Greenwald's scheduled appearance at a Council on American-Islamic Affairs (CAIR) conference on November 16 will tell us a lot about whether the Obama Administration is serious about protecting America's secrets.
The following questions ought to be directed to the Obama Administration: Will you question and prosecute Greenwald? If not, why not?
"Those Honored Dead"
"Why do you fly the flag today?"
My Grandson wants to know.
I fly it for the graveyards
Where the countless crosses grow.
I fly the flag for children
Whose fathers are a name.
A half-remembered memory
of a face within a frame.
I fly it for the families
of sons and daughters lost.
They know the price of liberty
How terrible the cost!
I fly the flag for veterans
who lost their youth in blood.
And saw their comrades slaughtered
in the carnage and the mud.
I fly it for the ones who marched
In cadence off to war
To close their eyes forever
Upon some foreign shore.
I fly the flag for grief poured out
Upon a granite wall.
The laying-on of hands that heals
The scars within us all.
I fly it for the sound of Taps---
That melancholy tune
That lays to rest those honored dead
Who always die too soon.
