Freedom Radio, 8 PM EDT SUN: Diana West, Tim Brown on GZ mosque; Bill Roggio on Shahzad, Taliban

Join Pat, aka Honest Conservative, 8 PM EDT Sunday evening, for the May 16 edition of Freedom Radio.

Update: Here is Tim Brown’s interview from Sunday evening:

Retired FDNY firefighter and 9/11 survivor Tim Brown of theBravest.com joins us to discuss the plan to build a sharia-complaint ‘Cordoba House’ within sight of where 19 followers of sharia law slammed Flights AA 11 and UAL 175 into the Twin Towers.

We’ll discuss with Diana West her latest column on TownHall.com, ‘Do We Deserve a Mosque at Ground Zero?’

The second attack on the World Trade Center is coming. It will stand 13 stories high, cost $100 million dollars and include a mosque. Known as Cordoba House — the name echoing an early caliphate that, of course, subjugated non-Muslims — it will be located two blocks away from where our magnificent towers crashed and burned, easy wafting distance for the Islamic call to prayer.

Maybe we deserve such a mosque at Ground Zero. It will serve as the perfect monument to post-9/11 America, a shining reproach to a nation that long ago capitulated through loss, or worse, absence of will. Not that it will be widely seen that way. Aside from the torment and seething of survivors, both family and professional family of the 9/11 dead, aside from blog noise and tabloid venting, the phony narrative of Cordoba House as a kind of healing outreach center — pure deception — appears ready for chiseling into stone. And that’s not because Cordoba’s flimflamming Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf obfuscates everything negative about Islam (jihad, for instance), and promotes everything antithetical to Western liberty (Sharia), often with jarring Western references. (“To Muslim ears,” he writes, “Sharia law means … the conditions necessary for what Americans call the pursuit of happiness.”) That is, it’s not only the efforts of Imam Rauf that are the problem. It’s because nearly nine years after 9/11, we are still stupid enough to buy them.

Bill Roggio of the LongWarJournal.org received an email from the Taliban within 8 hours of the May 1 attempt by Faisal Shahzad to set off a car bomb in Times Square. On April 30, the day before the attempted attack, the Taliban put their web site online and uploaded a video of their taking credit. Bill will explain what happened next and detail the players at the Pakistan end of the plot.

FBI secretly reading detainees their ‘rights’ in Afghanistan (Obama is ‘lawyer for terrorists’)

DOJ Confirms FBI is Reading Miranda Rights to Detainees in Afghanistan
Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd confirms Steve Hayes’s report that the FBI is reading Miranda rights to terrorist suspects in Afghanistan:

“There has been no policy change and nor blanket instruction issued for FBI agents to Mirandize detainees overseas. While there have been specific cases in which FBI agents have Mirandized suspects overseas, at both Bagram and in other situations, in order to preserve the quality of evidence obtained, there has been no overall policy change with respect to detainees.”

Posted by John McCormack (The Weekly Standard with links to a related post by Stephen Hayes, June 10, 2009)

Last night, Mark Levin ripped into the decision to read terrorists their “rights,” starting here:

Then Mark spoke with Congressman Mike Rogers (R-MI) about how he discovered this while on the ground at our detention facilities in Bagram, Afghanistan:

He also spoke with 9/11 family member Debra Burlingame:

Last September, Sarah Palin said:

“Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America and [Obama is] worried that someone won’t read them their rights.”

Now, play the video above (slide it to start at 1:48) to hear candidate Obama respond on September 8, 2008 (hat tip to John McCormack at The Weekly Standard).

“Don’t mock the Constitution?” Nowhere within it or the Amendments does it say “These rights will be extended to all foreigners, including America’s enemies.” In addition, the Geneva Conventions only state that captured lawful combatants must be allowed to remain silent (they need only provide their name, rank, and place of birth). The Conventions deliberately left unlawful combatants unprotected to discourage them from hiding among and endangering civilians.

It is President Barack Obama who mocks our Constitution by extending rights to Islamic terrorists — without the consent of the governed here in America and contrary to the Constitution. He is making the battlefield more hazardous for our troops and us less safe here at home.
