Press Fails to Tip Off Osama Bin Laden--Mission Successful!

The dramatic death of Osama Bin Laden, announced yesterday, provoked a myriad of responses. But the most profound of all was a sense of bi-partisn unity for the first time since 9-11. At that time America with all its diverse opinions came together in collective outrage against those who attacked us on our shores, killing thousands of innocent people, without provocation.

The horrendous sneak attack, directed by Osama Bin Laden, was killing for the sake of killing and showing power to possibly cower this nation into a surrender to Islam. The nation stood together for the first time in decades which gave the United States new strength.

During that brief time, prayer was suddenly OK, churches and Christianity itself was OK. Americans were more cordial toward one another. Republicans and Democrats worked together for what was good for America. That unity, unfortunately, was short lived.

Soon after the attacks, while the dead were still being found and buried, atheist Michael Newdow had filed a court case challenging the legality of the Pledge of Allegiance because it contained the words, "Under God."

Obama using the CIA to re-shuffle the political deck

It's time for some honesty in the current debate over the CIA's interrogation methods of terrorists. The argument isn't really over whether we were too harsh, given that even Obama has said we would continue turning terrorists over to other governments, knowing full well that those guys play rougher than we do.

It's all about politics.

Soon after his inauguration as President, Obama stated that he didn't want to re-open an investigation into CIA interrogations of terrorists because he knew that it would become a tremendous, political distraction - which is exactly why he's changed his mind.

Normally, the last thing a guy with Obama's messianic ambition would want is for all of Washington to become sidetracked with such a divisive issue, much less one that exposes the political weaknesses of his own party.

Obama's Thoroughly Discredited Attorney General Goes After the CIA

In an attempt to change the topic from Barack Obama's budget-breaking health care bill which the overwhelming majority of Americans are repulsed by, Obama's thoroughly discredited Attorney General, Eric Holder, changed the subject to supposed CIA abuse during the Bush administration.   

Eric Holder was the guy who actually persuaded Bill Clinton - as one of his final dastardly acts as president in 2001 - to pardon one of the most corrupt individuals in American history, Marc Rich.  Rich was indicted on federal charges of illegally making oil deals with Iran, even while America was trying to get our hostages released in the late 1970's.  In addition, Rich was indicted on tax evasion.  Yet, to its discredit, the Democrat-controlled Senate earlier this year confirmed Holder as attorney general.
