A Fifth column at the Fourth Estate

A Fifth column at the Fourth Estate.
As noted by Michelle Malkin; the NYT is two faced about leaks of classified government information. I guess the NYT forgets that we are at war and lives are on the line.
"After an egregiously long delay, Attorney General John Ashcroft finally did the right thing yesterday when he recused himself from the investigation into who gave the name of a CIA operative to the columnist Robert Novak. Mr. Ashcroft turned the inquiry over to his deputy, who quickly appointed a special counsel."
--New York Times editorial, "The Right Thing, At Last," December 31, 2003
"A democratic society cannot long survive if whistle-blowers are criminally punished for revealing what those in power don't want the public to know - especially if it's unethical, illegal or unconstitutional behavior by top officials. Reporters need to be able to protect these sources, regardless of whether the sources are motivated by policy disputes or nagging consciences. This is doubly important with an administration as dedicated as this one is to extreme secrecy."
New York Times editorial, "On the Subject of Leaks," January 4, 2006

So according to the NYT,
if the leaks hurts the President – it is good;
if the leak helps the President – it is bad.
But ALL leaks of classified information is illegal,
And Congress was aware of the NSA monitoring of INTERNATIONAL communications in October 2001.
And as concerns about the program surfaced – the President reviewed the program and adjusted the program to address the concerns.
Plus the President and NSA periodically made reports to Congress.
Never forget that Congress can demand more information from the administration, or Congress can cut funding.


Only one miner survived, and he is in bad, bad shape.

Looks are deceiving

Blogging looks easy, but it requires attention to detail.

Force Multipliers

Saw this on Michelle Malkin's site:

Force Multipliers
Wikipedia: force multiplier-a military term referring to a factor that dramatically increases (hence multiplies) the combat-effectiveness of a given military force.

In Iraq an IED explodes,
An American soldier dies,
But that blast will grow as the media blow
It up before our eyes.

And trumpet to the watching world,
These fifth column falsifiers,
Like sheep they bleat we face defeat,
Our foe’s force multipliers.

Osama and his minions know,
In combat they can’t beat us;
So they hope and pray will come a day,
Our own media will defeat us.

Ignoring all the good we’ve done,
Liberals focus on the gore,
On losses mounting and body counting,
To prove we’ve lost this war.

They disgraced us once in Vietnam,
So now these leftists feel,
That again they’ll win with media spin,
And make America kneel.

But defeatists aren’t the only ones,
Learned lessons from the past;
Back then we swore we’d lose no more,
This time we’re standing fast.

The Internet’s exposed them,
As elitist media liars;
They stand unclothed and widely loathed,
Our foe’s force multipliers.

Some day when all our troops return,
With Iraq on freedom’s path,
The liberal elite who sought defeat,
May face some Righteous wrath.

Why Blog

Why Blog?     

Blogging is the finest form of free speech yet invented. Anyone with access to the Internet can start a blog, and the whole world can instantly read their words.

One can try to change the world with their words or one can just entertain themselves. The choice is MINE.

Special Treatment?

Special Treatment or Not

As seen on
"A Texas lawmaker wants the University of Texas to reconsider it's suspension of an Asian-American fraternity accused of hazing because to treat it like all the others on campus could send the wrong message to the Asian community, reports the Houston Chronicle. ( )
Rep. Hubert Vo says the school should consider other punishments such as probation, community service or alcohol abuse training for the frat's members. His request is not, however, about race, he said. And he certainly wouldn't expect Asians to get special treatment at UT."
Rep. Vo is not claiming that the frat has been treated worse than other frats would be, he thinks treating it as equal sends wrong message.

If you want equal status, demand equality. DON’T ask for SPECIAL treatment
