TERRORISM SITREP

UNITED STATES CIA SCANDAL! Cheney and Spooks plotted killing al-Qaeda bigwigs. INVESTIGATE, DEMOCRATS DEMAND, although the strategy never took off. COVER for Pelosi’s unproven allegations of CIA lying?

COMMON SENSE

It took the Obama administration eight days to figure out whether Iranians being gunned down for protesting a fraudulent election and demanding basic civil liberties deserved to be acknowledged by the president of the United States. It took the O-Team less than eight hours to side with Cuba's Fidel Castro, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega over the ouster of Manuel Zelaya in Honduras.

COMMAND GUIDANCE

Anti-gun New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg announced the “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009,” a bill that would give unprecedented authority to the Attorney General to prohibit someone from exercising his or her Second Amendment rights based on nothing more than mere suspicion.

HEROIC CAPTAIN HONORED

COMMON SENSE

“What are you Americans thinking?” asked the young woman in perfect, if slightly accented, English. She was wearing a name tag with “Marie” in both Cyrillic and Latin print and had greeted us pleasantly when we ducked out of the rain and into her store to buy postcards and mementos for our grandchildren. Her question about American “thinking” came in the midst of a conversation about how dramatically life in Russia had changed during her 27 brief years.

COMMAND GUIDANCE

This Memorial Day, as we remember the military men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, we should also note that many of our bravest troops are suffering a terrible injustice today at the hands of their own government.

CIA PARALYZED?

AT THE FRONT

VETS RESPOND

COMMON SENSE

It is said that there are two kinds of lawyers: those who know the law and those who know the judge. And then there is Harold Koh, the man who is likely to be the next legal adviser to the State Department. Koh most recently served as dean of the Yale Law School and before that as Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor in the Clinton administration. He is a prolific author and a legal activist of the left.

COMMAND GUIDANCE

Tons of conjecture and so called eye witness accounts have been made regarding the SEAL piracy rescue, but nothing from any of the operational commands, as it should be. While the Commander in Chief clearly maintained a low profile during the hostage event, it is easy to assume he was avoiding direct on-scene contact. That may or may not have been the case; I do believe he was briefed constantly by NCA staff, and perhaps communicated with SECDEF throughout.

COMMON SENSE

The traveling, never-ending campaign road show came home this week [10 April]. The president of the United States is back in Washington from his "I like you, you like me" excellent adventure in Europe and "surprise" trip to Baghdad. It was nice of POTUS to thank the troops. He should have bowed to them instead of to King Abdullah.
