Sadly, It Is Finally Nineteen Eighty Four

Update: Reader WWS notes the latest propaganda effort regarding the March hesitation by the President to go after Bin Laden is also riddled with factual errors: The reason this was such a good hiding place for bin Laden was that predators were specifically forbidden from getting anywhere near it, under official threat of being shot […]

Obama White House Still In Over Their Head

John Hinderaker at Powerline wrote the post I was going to write this morning, about how team Obama took a smashing military success and turned it into a political mess: First we had John Brennan spinning a tale about bin Laden blazing away at the SEALs while using his wife–now deceased–as a human shield. Every […]

Was Obama Forced Into Action On Osama Bin Laden?

Major Updates Below! On Monday, the first full news day after the announcement we had brought Osama Bin Laden to justice, I noted an enormous inconsistency in one aspect of the story leading up to the raid on Bin Laden’s compound: Nothing wrong with a bit of caution here, don’t want to destroy an innocent […]

How Clean Is Pakistan On Bin Laden?

Published by under Bin Laden/GWOT

In my usual glass-half-full nature (and the rule everyone is innocent until proven guilty) my title is more optimistic than I feel. Two reports bear serious consideration. First up, from the New Yorker: The city is most notable for housing the Pakistan Military Academy, the Pakistani Army’s premier training college, equivalent to West Point. Looking […]

The 4 Year Hunt For Bin Laden – With Apparent Revisionism

Updates Below Confirming My Suspicions Finally, the story behind the hunt for Bin Laden begins to come clear – with some surprising twists and turns. It begins in GITMO, many years ago and probably involves extreme interrogation (e.g., water boarding, discomfort, etc): Some time after Sept. 11, detainees held by the U.S. told interrogators about […]

Final Update: Watched the President’s speech and I give it B-. It was rambling and sappy at times. It lost focus as the success of tonight was diluted with grand talk of equality. It was so syrupy in places I almost felt sorry for the teleprompter. And when the President wandered into the “I” did […]

Emperor Obama’s Libyan Failure – Mission Accomplished!

We should declare victory and leave the Libyan mess to the French. We stopped the massacre of Benghazi from occuring – Mission Accomplished! (at least according to Emperor Obama’s speech to his subjects this week). Per the UN resolutions and all the false PR, we are done. And a good thing too, because Col Qaddafi […]

Emperor Obama’s Flowery Words Present Path To Certain Failure

One of the reasons a lot of us supported President Bush in Iraq was he took the time and political capitol to garner UN and Congressional resolutions in support of the Iraqi front in the War on Terror. By doing so, he demonstrated beyond a doubt the moral righteousness of his actions, because he won […]

Everywhere you look today, a day of supposed rest and peaceful reflection, the liberals, progressives and other forms of immature and unprofessional failures have been making headlines with their inherent incompetence shining through. First off, many of those living off the public dole are upset that the public does not have any dole left to […]
