Skip to comments.P.C. kills Americans

If we die as a nation, Lincoln once said, it will be an act of national suicide. And so it seems we are. The media, led by The Washington Post, and Congress, led by Arizona Sen. John McCain, are moving America to disaster's brink by intentionally destroying its most successful counterterrorism tool: the CIA's rendition program. Spurred by The Post's traditional lust for compromising national security for no reason save selling copy, and abetted by Mr. McCain's ignorant grandstanding and shameless exploitation of his POW record to sate his presidential lust, the CIA program that best defends America will soon be laid to rest. Around the grave The Post, Mr. McCain and the pacifist Democrats and their European idols will rejoice over burying what they have misidentified as "torture operations." Instead, they will have destroyed America's main offensive weapon against al Qaeda. This disaster began nearly a year ago. First, the intrepid Post reporters revealed the tail number of an aircraft purportedly used by CIA to move captured militants. A piece of information of no news value, but titillating to the world's media and incentive to America's European enemies to destroy the cover of a covert-action capability that took years to perfect. How, thanks to The Post, the CIA's clandestine counterterrorism cooperation with several allies has been exposed or reported incorrectly, time will tell -- thereby severely diminishing the chance of further such cooperation. Unavoidably, this will weaken America against al Qaeda and result in more dead Americans. For The Post, thousands of American corpses are apparently not too much of a price to pay for selling papers and perhaps bagging a Pulitzer.

We are commiting national suicide in the name of political correctness, and the people the leftists are trying to impress are still laughing at us.
Time to take the media out of this "treason is patriotic" mode they are in. I'd like to see the jokers from the NY Times and WAPO in cuffs very soon.
That's the first I have heard of this. Do you have a source?
The POTUS walks a fine line. If he was to have another 20 minutes on the airwaves and said in no certain terms certain L/MSM where directly responsible for breaching national security and that the leakers in responsible Intel agencies should be exposed, tried and sentenced to long jail terms the filth bag far left commies in the senate,house,& L/MSM will make him out to be the "most dangerous president ever". And the masses of Americans that just don't follow things much beyond what they hear from the L/MSM will not have a clue as to how they are being sold down the tubes.
I, for one, see no reason at all to click on any post that is from the N.Y.T., but that's just me.
No. The author is the same guy who, while still a CIA employee, was a member of a rogue group of operatives that was dedicated to undermining and sabotaging the foreign policy of the Bush administration.
Political correctness is just another name for Cultural Marxism.
Political Correctness will destroy America.
The actual quote:
Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.
At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad.
If destruction were our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."
That is the most damning indictment against PC I can imagine.
Read my tag line.
Why didn't the leader of the "Republican" party, President Bush tell McCain to stick the Terrorist Bill of Rights up his shorts or threaten a veto?
Because Bush is a weak President.
