I'm too tired to fuss with much of a post today, but I can't help commenting about the claims that the left (including President Obama) makes about Gitmo and "enhanced interrogation techniques." Specifically, that these controversial issues help our enemies recruit new people to the radical Muslim jihadist cause. We're treating captured terrorists so badly and inhumanely, you see.
Hmm. Daniel Pearl. Leon Klinghoffer. The two 13-year-old Jewish boys hacked to death in a cave. I could go on, but you get the idea. Yes indeedy. The terrorists have much to teach us about morality and mercy.
These murderous thugs are the types who brutally behead people on video and release it to the world. These are the people who fly planes into buildings, blow up airplanes, blow up pizza parlors, and will even blow themselves up if they can take innocent bystanders with them in sufficient numbers. Do they really need the excuse of Gitmo, which is really more like a 4-star hotel, or waterboarding? If Daniel Pearl had been given the choice of waterboarding or having his head sawn off, I don't think it would have been hard to choose.
Better yet, does the left really think that if we tuck terrorist detainees in bed under eiderdown quilts, making sure to serve them prime rib along with tea and crumpets, and plenty of back issues of "Jihad Times" for their reading pleasure, that they'll be any less inclined to kill us? I guess they do.
Whatever the case, I am getting tired of being lectured by this crew on morality and American values. This is the same bunch that sees nothing wrong with sodomy or butchering unborn children up to the ninth month of pregnancy. This bunch doesn't give a rip about morality or American values, and they'd just as soon send the Constitution through a shredder at the first opportunity.
Oh, well. Off to bed before my blood pressure rises any further.
