A most unusual spy ring

The 9/11 Commission Report pinned a good part of the failure to prevent the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people on the wall that had been erected to keep the intelligence and law enforcement communities from talking to each other. Intelligence information could taint criminal trials, and had to be kept from the FBI […]

The Bill Keller death toll

In the months following 9/11, if you'd have taken a poll of the general public most would have predicted that the United States would not go another five years without a major terrorist attack. For all its mistakes in just about every other aspect of governance -- from out-of-control spending on the domestic front to […]

Iowahawk has discovered the first draft of history professor David A. Bell's controversial piece "Was 9/11 really that bad." An excerpt: No disrespect to the victims of 9/11 or to the men and women of our armed forces, but by the standards of past wars, 3000 yuppie bond traders and a couple of high-rise developments […]

Was Pearl Harbor really that bad?

Fewer than 3,000 Americans were killed by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The target was military, not civilian -- seriously, warships are just asking for it aren't they? And this was 1941 -- Hawaii wasn't even a U.S. state! It was a justified strike against American imperialism. So, the Japanese […]

Setec Astronomy

Yes, I'm back to referencing the movie "Sneakers." In that film, Setec Astronomy was discovered to be an anagram of "Too Many Secrets." If it wasn't apparent before, the New York Times is of the opinion that the U.S. government doesn't deserve to have any secrets when it comes to national security. The Bush administration […]

Secrets in his socks

Former Clinton administration national security adviser Sandy Berger Burglar pleaded guilty last year to charges that he stole classified documents from the National Archives. He was fined $50,000 and lost his security clearance for three years (just getting them back in time if a Democrat wins the White House in 2008). Wednesday, the inspector general's […]

Funny, but scary

David Zucker of "Airplane!" fame has produced another ad, this time on the Iraq Study Group's "plan" to get Iran to "help" us in Iraq. This time, thankfully, there's no scary looking Madeline Albright clone.

Time for some law enforcement

It's bad enough when Jimmy Carter and "the Rev." Jesse Jackson do it, but when you are an elected official, I think it's even worse. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) is going to meet with Syrian president dictator/terrorist Bashar Assad. In an end-run around the Bush administration, Sen. Bill Nelson is scheduled to meet with Syrian […]

First rule of flight club

A couple weeks back a half-dozen Muslim clerics from the Phoenix area were flying home from a conference in Minnesota. They ended up being pulled off the plane because they forgot the rules of flight club. On a similar note, check out this op-ed piece by Debra Burlingame. These Imams were begging to be kicked […]
