Treason Against Pakistan

Various articles on the web have noted that the man suspected of helping the United States locate Osama bin Laden has been arrested and jailed. Without trial, so far, apparently — so far, just pending a trial. Now it turns out he's been fired and charged with treason.

I find that interesting. Osama bin Laden was supposedly not in Pakistan, to the best of the Pakistan government's knowledge. And he supposedly had no relationship to or support from the Pakistani government. But, for helping identify bin Laden's whereabouts, this guy is being charged with treason. That means his actions were a betrayal of Pakistan and its government. That means bin Laden was part of Pakistan and its government. Q.E.D.

Good Reason to Ban the Burqa

Anything that allows terrorists to hide their identities — and the explosives they're carrying — is inherently bad. It's time the burqa is banned in every civilized country. It's time any country that won't ban the burqa be considered an uncivilized security risk for everyone.

Otherwise, we will probably see a lot more "drag queens for Allah" like these:

Absolutely Right!

It's no longer enough to say that President Obama has no respect for Latinos and no fear of them. We're way beyond that. By denying what he's done, Obama has shown that he views Latino voters with contempt. By now, for anyone who is paying attention, the feeling should be mutual.
