The Al Qaeda Times

in Politics

Most people are now familiar with the latest treason committed by the New York Slimes. My favorite analysis of the Slimes’ decision to leak details about how the U.S. has frozen terrorist assets abroad comes from National Review’s Rich Lowry. He hit the nail on the head.

American politics underwent a great debate over the appropriateness of clandestine activities in foreign policy when the CIA was created. Contemporary debates over the level of secrecy required is of course appropriate but once the decision is made that secret programs are appropriate, someone must be in charge of deciding which programs may be publicized and which must remain secret in the interest of national security. By deciding which programs should be kept secret and which should be made public, the Treason Times has effectively usurped the role of the executive branch as the arbiter of classifying and declassifying certain programs. Of course, no one elected the Old Grey Whore’s editorial board to make such decisions and no one ever would.

Freezing terrorist assets has been an extremely effective asset in the war on terror, an asset which has saved lives. The Times’ treason leaves American civilians at greater risk of a terrorist attack. If the Times’ act in fact leads to the death of innocent American civilians, and was witnessed by two people, I recommend the maximum penalty provided by the treason statute. That is what the first George W. would have done.

Great find on the picture! It’s so true now that the Belgian government is investigating the banking network that was hooking us up, basically paralyzing the system. Thanks liberal media for another one…
