Why I Miss George W. Bush

For all his flaws, and he did have flaws, Bush was an honorable guy.  And he still is:

When George W. Bush heard about Fort Hood, he and Laura got in his car without any escort, apparently they did not have time to react, and drove to Fort Hood. He was stopped at the gate and the guard could not believe who he had just stopped. Bush only ask for directions to the hospital then drove on. The gate guard called that “The president is on Fort Hood and driving to the hospital.” The base went bananas looking for Obama. When they found it was Bush they immediately offered escort and Bush simply told them to let him visit the wounded and the dependents of the dead. He stayed at Fort Hood for over six hours and was finally asked to leave by a message from the White House. Obama flew in days later and held a “photo ” session in a gym and did not even go to the hospital. All this I picked up from two soldiers here who happened to be at Fort Hood when it happened.

Mr. President, you're a class act.

The Long Reach of Israel

Noah Pollak over at Contentions has this to say about the controversy over the assassination of a top Hamas operative in Dubai:

…the fact of the matter is that the team got into Dubai, rubbed out a bad guy, and got out. No drama, nobody was captured, and nobody knows the real identities of the team or where they are now. Given the extraordinary risk and complexity of the operation, that’s a win in my book. And now the Iranians, Syrians, and their terrorist clients have been given another reminder that their people aren’t safe anywhere — even in the heart of the Arab world.

And as for the people who are whining about “passport fraud” misdemeanors while ignoring the felony staring them in the face: what do you say about the fact that the terrorist in charge of illegally smuggling missiles from Iran to Hamas apparently had an open invite to hang out in Dubai? This isn’t a problem?

It’s good to know that at least one government in the world takes terrorism seriously these days.

The Confession of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

Why this animal is still walking among the living is beyond my ability to comprehend.  America is a very merciful nation.  Unfortunately, on top of that abundance of mercy, we now have executive branch leaders who are just, well, stupid.

Note – the video contains some very graphic depictions of this monster’s handiwork.  Viewer discretion is advised.
