A Memo On Crisis

I read several papers a day, almost all of which are unfortunately liberal in tone, if not content, and I read the Op- Ed columns, many of which are also liberal.

One of these, written by Thomas Friedman, had a screed today on just how good it was that Barama had released (selectively), the memos on enhanced interrogations, saying that he (Barama) had got it just about right when he released the memos, but said he would not prosecute the lawyers who worked to implement the policy.

The president decided to selectively expose the memos to placate those foam at the mouth liberals who were screaming for blood- but he refused to prosecute these people, because he knows that this could happen to him.
The problem becomes a Pontius Pilate One, whereby he can say he (Barama) did nothing to prosecute, but his slavish minions like Pelosi, Conyers, Reid, Soros, and all the other moronic imbeciles who elected this man will gleefully tear at this “wound” in America, all with Barama’s tacit approval, and the cheering of the liberal press.

Thomas Friedman, in his article, does several liberal tricks of the press (probably how he won his pulitzers- or no one else was in competition), in that he keeps referring to Al- Qaida and bin Laden in the past tense, as if the threat is gone. Not once, or twice, but constantly throughout the article does he refer to these terrorists in the past tense.

But then, he writes this- note the use, once again, of past tense- “..Osama bin Laden and Al- Qaida aspired to deliver a devastating blow to America, They ” were involved in an extraordinarily sophisticated and professional effort to acquire weapons of mass destruction, In this case, nuclear material,” Michael Scheuer the former CIA bin Laden expert told 60 minutes in 2004.”

Does anybody think that Al-Qaida has ceased their search for fissile material to do us harm? Thomas Friedman certainly seem to think so, judging from the way he writes. Personally, I believe that even if bin Laden was dead, the search for WMDs would go on, despite Mr. Friedman’s seeming surety that Al-Qaida no longer seems to look for bomb material.

Now, he does say that post 9/11 remains a perilous time, but the one paragraph that really caught my eye in the midst of this diatribe was this: ” We have the luxury of having this torture debate now, because there was no second 9/11, and it was not for want of trying. Had there been, a vast majority of Americans would have told the government( and still will ), ” Do whatever it takes.” ”

I notice that he gives former President Bush no credit, nor does he credit this program of enhanced interrogation with obtaining information, which is disingenuous to say the least, and a flat out lie by omission in fact. All the facts need to be laid out in front of the American people in its entirety, not just selective memos , but as Dick Cheney said, let the American people judge on all the facts. Selective release just confuses the problem and just shows what Barama wants you to see. He doesn’t want you to peek behind the curtain and see the naked process of liberalism. Barama counts on crisis.

Come on Barry, show it all- are you afraid of the truth? I think you are.

    I wish that people could understand that God is judging America right now. We have taken God out of America and God is a jealous God. Obama cannot turn the economy around, and the catastrophes will not stop as long as we have leaders that say killing babies and homosexuality is okay. We took the bible out of schools and now our kids carry guns into school. This country and others will now suffer until we repent and turn our faces back to God. God is not going away, even if you don’t believe in Him, and He cannot be mocked. Our moraless leaders can either stay on this course and watch America suffer greatly or they can ask God for forgiveness and see this country prosper. You will not have both.
