Times Square attack hacks; Racial politics by political leadership endangering American people

Bill Roggio of the Long War Journal reported that the Taliban video taking credit for the attempted bombing in Times Square was created in April and uploaded from Connecticut before the attack:

The YouTube website that hosted the video was created by a group calling itself the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan News Channel. The website was created one day before the failed attack, and the video was also uploaded one day before the attack, The Long War Journal first reported on May 2.

Far worse than being hacks for political correctness, Mayor Michael Bloomberg (“Maybe … someone with a political agenda who doesn’t like the health care bill…”) and Congressman Jerrold Nadler (“Whether they were some right-wing nut group…”) endanger their constituents by averting attention away from the real danger, those who have made at least 31 attempts to attack us here on U.S. soil since September 11, 2001.

Mark Levin spoke of this on last night’s Sean Hannity Show:

“[Terrorists] are making a run at us … because they sense weakness, they sense that we have our guard down … It is obviously fundamental Islam. It is not 40-year old white guys. … We are talking about protecting this country and these guys play group, racial politics.”

Lawyers, damn lawyers, and Al Qaeda; Mark Levin stands with Keep America Safe

Mark Levin stands with Keep America Safe and disputes “the group of leading conservative lawyers and policy experts denouncing as “shameful” Republican attacks on lawyers who came to the Obama Justice Department after representing suspected terrorists.”

“The isn’t the Boston Massacre. You have people in the position of defending this nation at the highest levels of the Justice Department who have represented the enemy, and their belief systems have clearly affected national security policy. … And in some cases, these lawyers were not just representing clients, they went out and found them, sought them out. They considered them some of the most important cases they ever had. “Due process rights for the enemy? Absolutely. Civilian justice for the enemy? Absolutely.” Now they’re in government making the same exact decisions except they are setting policy. … Ben Smith at Politico, why don’t you make a list of some lawyers like me, former Chief of Staff to Attorney General Meese; I side with Liz Cheney and Debra Burlingame and Keep America Safe.”

Here is the complete audio of Mark on this from last night:

On February 26, 2010, Mark Levin cited a factual account of the Boston Massacre and John Adams’ truly noble role in its aftermath. Mark added:

“[T]hese things get used to distort current events. … The Boston Massacre had nothing to do with overthrowing the United States — it was a tragedy and John Adams did not seek as his goal to confer special rights on people who were plotting to destroy American society through any means possible.”

I offer Mark’s commentary as further evidence that to cite John Adams as a comparable example to the allegedly altruistic work of the ‘Al Qaeda Seven‘ (among others) fractures American history. Worse, it unwittingly lends credibility to the ACLU’s vile use of that Founding Father and a great patriot’s name in their insidious attempt to undermine our national security and to criminalize America’s use of military force in the Nation’s defense.

“If lawyers choose to volunteer their services to the enemy in wartime, they are on the wrong side of that fault line, and no one should feel reluctant to say so.” — Andrew McCarthy

“If not for the vigilant work of Keep America Safe, the corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder’s national security stone wall on DOJ’s terror lawyers would still be standing. Asking politely, in respectful tones with bowed heads and stooped spines, did not get the DOJ to cough up the names.” — Michelle Malkin

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.

After Mark Levin spoke with Congressman Rogers about his discovery that President Barack Obama had secretly ordered the FBI to Afghanistan to interview captured detainees, to include reading them their “Miranda rights,” he spoke with former U.S. Attorney Andy McCarthy. From his experience while prosecuting those that bombed our embassies in Africa, McCarthy provided a clear example of what happens when you extend Constitutional rights to terrorists:

President Barack Obama’s choice of wars and words

A huge majority of Americans and Congress initially supported President George W. Bush’s decision to invade Iraq. When support for the war waned, Bush chose to stay the course and Congress has fully funded the effort to leave only when Iraq has both a representative government and viable security in place. America’s sons and daughters have lived up to their oaths, served the cause of liberty in Iraq, and continue to sacrifice.

While no survey will be taken to confirm it, I suspect nearly all who have served in Iraq were angered to hear at least one passage of President Barack Obama’s speech yesterday. Mark Levin played the audio and commented. Late in the show, Heather from Virginia Beach called in expressing what likely are the feelings of many military family members:

Words matter.
