CIA asks for DOJ probe of illegal leaks

In an exclusive report from Eli Lake and Sara Carter, The Washington Times is reporting that the CIA has asked The Justice Department to examine what it regards as the criminal disclosure of a secret program to kill foreign terrorist leaders abroad.

Read it all.

The double standard

The Washington Times said it best … “It’s a sad day in America when the shooting of an abortion doctor stops the presses but no one notices two soldiers gunned down by an Islamist.”

In contrast to the flurry of Presidential and DOJ activity following the Tiller murder, there has been no reaction at all from the Obama White House regarding the Islamist attack at a Conway, Arkansas recruiting center.

Toby Harnden writing at the UK Telegraph notes this statement from Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

“The stories of two very different lives with similar fates crossed through the media’s hands yesterday – both equally important but one lacked the proper attention. The death of 67-year old George Tiller was unacceptable, but equally disgusting was another death that police believe was politically and religiously motivated as well.

“William Long died yesterday. The 23-year old Army Recruiter was gunned down by a fanatic; another fellow soldier was wounded in the ambush. The soldiers had just completed their basic training and were talking to potential recruits, just as my son, Track, once did.

“Whatever titles we give these murderers, both deserve our attention. Violence like that is no way to solve a political dispute nor a religious one. And the fanatics on all sides do great disservice when they confuse dissension with rage and death.”

Harnden asks, “Is there a double standard operating here?”

I suppose the question is rhetorical.

No Democrat Left Behind

Eric Holder is at it again. After accusing America of cowardice in addressing race issues, Holder’s “Justice” Department dismissed a civil complaint of voter intimidation against the New Black Panthers. You probably remember this Election Day video:

In an exclusive story, The Washington Times reports:

The incident – which gained national attention when it was captured on videotape and distributed on YouTube – had prompted the government to sue the men, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring would-be voters with the weapon, racial slurs and military-style uniforms.

Career lawyers pursued the case for months, including obtaining an affidavit from a prominent 1960s civil rights activist who witnessed the confrontation and described it as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, even during the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.

Holder spokesman Alejandro Miyar told the Times, we are “committed to the vigorous prosecution of those who intimidate, threaten or coerce anyone exercising his or her sacred right to vote.”

We at NG offer this clarification and modification for Spokesman Miyar and the brave political hacks in Obama’s Justice Department,

we are “committed to the vigorous prosecution of those who intimidate, threaten or coerce any one DEMOCRAT exercising his or her sacred right to vote.”

There. FTFY.

Fugate named to run FEMA

craig-fugateFrom all appearances, it looks like the Obama administration has finally made a very good appointment to a key domestic position. Floridian Craig Fugate, “one of the nation’s most experienced hurricane hands” has been named to head up FEMA.

I don’t know much about Mr. Fugate, and perhaps some of our Florida readers would like to weigh in on this appointment. But, in light of the administration’s recent history of foisting nominees on the public who have a poor record of paying their fair share of taxes, Mr. Fugate’s appointment looks like one that they got right. There really is no substitute for BTDT experience, of which Fugate has a boatload.

Friday Link Roundup

Here you go. I know you’ve been waiting for it.

You’ve gotta love Debbie Schlussel. She has positively owned the Khalidi-Obama story. You wonder why the LA Times continues to suppress the tape of the AAAN dinner? This would do it

…here’s what you haven’t yet heard: that a kids’ dance troupe that appeared at the event has a history of simulating beheadings and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags….[snip]

But they didn’t just dance the debkah.

Suddenly the Sanabel AlQuds dancers pulled out fake swords and rifles and adorned three of their troupe respectively with an American, Isreaeli, and British flag. The others pretended to behead and/or shoot the boys wearing the flags. Then they put red scarves over the three boys heads, signifying blood and no head. Then, the flags were taken off, thrown to the ground, and trampled on by this young group of Milwaukee dancers.

Next up, the definition of “rich” keeps getting defined downward in Obamaworld. Bill Richardson lowers the bar to $120K.

Michelle Obama offers (in 5 seconds) a true critique of the obamessiah’s record … Link

Sarah’s “high-voltage appeal” plays well in the Keystone State.

The Heritage Foundation compares the tax plans of both candidates. Good read.

Horrors: Erica Jong Tells Italians Obama Loss ‘Will Spark the Second American Civil War. Blood Will Run in the Streets’.

So, if the obamessiah is up by double digits in Iowa, WTF is he doing campaining in Iowa right here at crunch time? Hmmm? Iowa Independent has the story.

Ah yes. Nothing demonstrates “Unity”, and “Post Partisanship” better than booting off reporters whose newspapers don’t endorse you. (Unless you consider the TV stations that have been “banned” for daring to ask the oba-biden campaign tough questions).

File this under “who’da thunkit?” … Ohio Secretary of State, the hyper-partisan Jennifer Brunner has some interesting links to that paragon of electoral justice — ACORN.

Warning!!! “Armies of Lawyers” have been deployed to Florida. Heh. Sorry swampie.
