Media outlets conspire to slime Sen. Tom Cotton

Last weekend, Salon, an online magazine whose best days were probably 15-plus years ago and now appears to be little more than a low-rent, clickbait version of Mother Jones, published a hit piece on Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) accusing the man who served one tour in Iraq and another in Afghanistan—and was awarded a Bronze Star—of stolen valor. […]

Soft targets

CNN national security analyst Juliette Kayyem thinks that those of us calling for arming military recruiters are foolish. Stop w/ the "we need to harden soft targets by arming folks." It's dangerous talk. There will always be soft targets. We need to rethink 1/2 — Juliette Kayyem (@juliettekayyem) July 17, 2015 Force protection since military […]

Media bias illustrated

Earlier today, three whistleblowers testified before a House committee investigating security decisions made prior to the Benghazi attack, the attack itself, the Obama administration's response to the attack and charges of  a cover-up. If you were counting on the Big 3 broadcast networks and the establishment press to tell you what this was all about, […]

More on women in combat

So, a thoughtful young lady posted a comment on my previous post regarding the foolish decision by the Obama administration to open up combat positions in the military to women. The worst part about this whole issue is that there hasn’t been nearly the serious discussion of this issue in the media and society as […]

Women and men

So, I watched the movie Crooked Arrows Sunday night after the Super Bowl. If you like lacrosse or want to know just what the heck lacrosse is, I’d encourage you to see it. Otherwise, you’ve already seen this movie done better. (It was called Hoosiers.) At the beginning of the movie, the lacrosse team from […]

Has Obama watched ‘A Few Good Men?’

The latest news on the Benghazi scandal and cover-up broke last week when Fox News reported that CIA operators at the annex a few short blocks from the U.S. consulate had been ordered multiple times to “stand down” and not assist the Americans under attack. In the first days after the attack, attention focused on […]

Inspiring confidence in the troops

When I saw this, my jaw just dropped. In a sign of the nervousness surrounding Mr. Panetta’s trip, the Marines and other troops who were waiting in a tent for the defense secretary to speak were abruptly asked by their commander to get up, place their weapons — M-16 and M-4 automatic rifles and 9-mm […]

Projecting military power

If you’ve been marginally aware of how difficult Presidents Bush 43 and Obama have found it to get our NATO allies to assist in Afghanistan over the past half-dozen years or so, then this news would come as little surprise: For the second time in three years, Britain has found itself with too small a […]

One of the signs of the apocalypse

In which I agree with Democrat Lynn Woolsey: The Obama Administration’s argument is one that shows contempt for the Constitution and for the executive’s co-equal branch of government, the United States Congress.  To say that our aggressive bombing of Libya does not rise to the level of ‘hostilities’ flies in the face of common sense […]

On Libya

A few quick notes on our "kinetic military action" in North Africa: Is anyone surprised that the same administration that gave us "overseas contingency operations" and "man-caused disasters" would come up with "kinetic military action" to describe airstrikes against Libya? I've read all about the War Powers Act (and the debates over its constitutionality) and […]
