Barack Obama's latest attacks on the CIA and the men and women who are protecting us from Islamic terrorists are but the most recent in a thirty year assault on America's national security by the Democratic Party. Beginning with Watergate and the Carter Administration, the Democrats have attempted to gut and hamstring the nation's national security apparatus. During the Iraq War they supported the destruction of three major national security programs by government employees breaking the Espionage laws, in practice committing treason (Ben Johnson and I have summarized this deplorable record since the Carter Administration and going through the Iraq War in Party of Defeat: How Democrats and Radicals Undermined America's War on Terror Before and After 9/11). They have demonized the Central Intelligence Agency with reckless accusations, have passed laws and issued executive orders to tie the hands of its operatives and raised the specter of criminal prosecutions of agents for carrying out their duties. Criminalizing political differences is what totalitarian regimes do; attacking patriotic civil servants is what saboteurs and traitors do. Patrick Leahy, who is leading the Senatorial pack on this issue was a friend and abettor of the Communist guerillas in El Salvador and dictators in Nicaragua during the Cold War. Barack Obama recently groveled before the Sandinista leader, now Marxist president of Nicaragua, as he indicted America as a terrrorist state. Our nation is now in the hands of seditious appeasers. It is in greater general peril than it has been at any time since World War II.
Danny Can't Read (like so many leftists)
Comment submitted by Danny in regards to blog entry, The Democrats' Thirty Year Assault On America's Security:
"Criminalizing political differences is what totalitarian regimes do; attacking patriotic civil servants is what saboteurs and traitors do."
And referring to political opponents who have a different and rational interpretation of what constitutes torture as traitors and saboteurs is what demagogues do.
But Danny, I didn't say that people who disagreed on the definition of torture were saboteurs and/or traitors. I said that government employees who leak classified national security secrets in order to destroy national security programs, and attempting to prosecute civil servants for doing their duty in a democratically elected government is what saboteurs and traitors do. Patriotic dissenters try to persuade their fellow citizens to elect a new government to change policy. Many Democrats have forgotten how to do this. Many leftists never gave doing it a thought.
