GOP and terrorists: perfect together?

Markos thinks that Republicans and Muslim terrorists share a lot in common.

That’s why hysterical assertions by the wingers that liberals hate America and want the terrorists to win are so absurd. As absurd as it would’ve been to claim that Reagan wanted the Communists to win the Cold War. The Taliban/Al Qaida/Hezbollah/Jihadists of the world are the exact embodiment of evil in the liberal mind. They are everything we are against, and against everything we are for.

In fact, they are exactly what we see in the Republican Party as the GOP continues to consolidate power — creeping theocracy, moralizing, us versus them, embrace of torture, the need to constantly declare jihad on someone, hysterics over football-game nipples, control over “decency” on the airwaves, lyrics censorship, hostility to women freedoms, curtaling of civil liberties, and so on.

So it’s pretty obvious — we don’t love terrorists. We don’t want them to win. For them to win would be to realize our greatest fears. The muslim terrorist is truly the anti-liberal. Like matter and anti-matter.

Who’s Responsible for Abusing Detainees?

Have you seen today’s NY Times Prisoner Abuse Article?

What a joke!

A senior military investigator told Congress on Thursday that high-level American officials failed to establish clear procedures for interrogating prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan, but said it was not his job to hold anyone responsible.

Oh no, that would be unconscionable.

In response, several Democrats faulted the investigator, Vice Adm. Albert T. Church III of the Navy, for not assigning blame to specific senior Defense Department civilians and military commanders for the lack of guidance and oversight in developing interrogation policy.

Why Sibel Edmonds Will Never Talk

Here are several important Sibel Edmonds’ links.

There is a good reason that the Justice Dept. is putting a muzzle on former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds.

Chris Deliso: Hmm, well I know you can’t name names, but can you tell me if any specific officials will suffer if your testimony comes out?

Sibel Edmonds: Yes. Certain elected officials will stand trial and go to prison

Edmonds has made several damaging accusations.  She has questioned many facets of the Translations Department operation at the FBI.  She has questioned the hiring practices, the qualifications of employees, the accountability procedures and much more.  She also claims that the FBI had a lot of advance warning that 9/11 was coming and should have issued major FAA warnings no later than spring of 2001.
