CIA vet on Zero Dark Thirty.

Great commentary. Read it all. Jose A. Rodriguez Jr. is a 31-year veteran of the CIA. He is the author of “Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives,” written with former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow, who also contributed to this essay. It is an odd experience to enter a darkened room […]

Holder: Consistently inconsistent.

[Wall Street Journal] Contrary to liberal myth, military tribunals aren’t a break with 200-plus years of American jurisprudence. Eight Nazis who snuck into the U.S. in June 1942 were tried by a similar court and most were hanged within two months. Before the Obama Administration stopped all proceedings earlier this year pending yesterday’s decision, the […]

Rotunda-Miller on Miller.

Here’s the latest interview between Dennis Miller and former Guantanamo Bay JAG officer Kyndra Rotunda-Miller. Listen to the whole thing.

Wa. Post lies on Guantanamo.

Does putting an arsonist into prison only create more arsonists? What about car jackers? Then why does detention for terrorists only propel them to commit terrorism upon their release? It’s an absurd proclamation, yet it is exactly what the Washington Post has spent the past weekend arguing on their front page. The story regards Abdallah […]

Obama & Guantanamo.

From Friday, Debra Burlingame was among the 40 family members of the 2,975 murdered on September 11 and the 17 sailors murdered aboard the USS Cole who met with President Obama. During the meeting, President Obama was wrong on the law, wrong about what Boumediene v. Bush afforded the detainees held at Guantanamo, and […]

The rest of the Guantanamo story.

I’ve been meaning to post these podcasts of interviews from Dennis Miller’s and G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show with two former military officers who served at Guantanamo — JAG officer Maj. Kyndra Rotunda (here (or here), & here) and Col. Gordon Cucullu (here). Maj. Rotunda-Miller is author of Honor Bound: Inside the Guantanamo Trials. (I’ve […]

Padded seats for 9-11 mastermind.

This article underscores how weak is the argument that the U.S. through the tribunal system doesn’t provide captured terrorists the proper civil liberties. Khalid Sheik Mohammed is the unapologetic, indeed braggart, mastermind of the 9-11 attacks. It’s bad enough that this fiend still has a pulse, let alone that the debate over his treatment includes […]

Torture is made of sterner stuff.

You can tell it’s a slow news day when the Washington Post, et. al., runs another “Torture!” story. Not a hair on a detainee has been touched since 2003/2004, but that won’t stop the mainstream press from repackaging as “Breaking News!” a rehashed interview or government report. In this case it regards Mohammed al-Qahtani, a […]

We’re “torturers”! No, we’re “too nice”..?

A few years ago and without merit, people started claiming torture at Guantanamo Bay. Among the citations was a charge by the International Committee of the Red Cross, who cleverly worded their accusation as “tantamount to torture.” In her book Honor Bound: Inside the Guantanamo Trails, former JAG officer Maj. Kyndra Rotunda-Miller explained that to […]

McCarthy on Hamdan

Here’s an excerpt about the Hamdan verdict — basically a revolting sentence of time served — written by Andrew McCarthy, the former federal prosecutor of Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and the 1993 WTC bombers. In Hamdan’s case, we thus have a double problem. First, the jury of military officers somehow decided that material support […]
