911 Transcript Edits Blowback Force Release of Unedited Transcripts
The administration backed off from its indefensible editing of the 911 transcript of the Orlando shooter to remove references to Islam or ISIS. They claim that they were attempting to deny him a propaganda victory. In reality, they were engaging in propaganda over history themselves.
The administration doesn't respect the historical record. We see them revising Gitmo detainee assessments to allow release. They revised the intelligence assessments on Iran to hide information before the vote on the nuclear deal. They edit videos of press briefings. They claimed that Benghazi was about a video so they would not have to explain an Al Qaeda attack 6 weeks before the 2012 election. They withheld IRS files on the investigation into denying nonprofit status for political reasons. They withheld records in the Fast and Read more
What does America need to do about terrorism? I don't know all of the answers, but I do have some positive suggestions.
I absolutely reject the idea that people should have their rights suspending because they have the wrong name or religion and some bureaucrat put them on some list with a bad sounding name. Terror watchlist means that we have no evidence even to arrest you. Obviously, no rights should be suspended nor can be. Do you want to suspend first amendment rights too? There is room for compromise. If someone is on the list, the FBI should know and have a day to respond before someone on the list (or use up to 3 days available under law if necessary). If you ban them from getting it, you alert them that they are being watched which they may not have known. They may go underground or use alternative weapons. There is no violation of rights or due process to vet someone Read more
We are all Americans. We pray for the victims of the nightclub shooting. Today we are not gay or straight. What do I mean? I mean that we do not tolerate our fellow Americans being targeted for whatever reason. I mean we one against Islamic terrorists who think murder and terror are tools for change. We are at war. It is not a gun control problem. I bet if it were a country bar, the shooter would not have killed as many. It is silly to use this to advance a social agenda. ISIS wants to wipe out homosexuals as their next target. We need to join together and defeat them both there and restore the intelligence sharing between federal and local law enforcement.
This terrorist seemed to hate everyone. We need to love everyone. We need to resist social balkanization. Our nation is growing weaker partially because we no longer value our diversity. We use it as a weapon to gain Read more
(CNN)Donald Trump reacted to the explosions that rocked Brussels Tuesday morning, describing the scene as a “disaster” and warning that “this is just the beginning.”
The Republican front-runner, who has made immigration and security issues central to his 2016 presidential bid, discussed the reported suicide attacks in an interview on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.”
“I will tell you, I’ve been talking about this a long time, and look at Brussels,” Trump said. “Brussels was a beautiful city, a beautiful place with zero crime. And now it’s a disaster city. It’s a total disaster, and we have to be very careful in the United States, we have to be very careful and very vigilant as to who we allow in this country.”
