HOT5 Daily 8/28/09

1. "Central Investigation Agency: Protecting America Until They Are Put in Jail" Good analysis of the CIA situation. Debunks ridiculous editorial by Dan Froomkin.

Representative Sample: It is easy to criticize an agency tasked with national security without mentioning why it did what it did in order to provide protection and whether or not its methods were effective or not. If you want to advocate a high level investigation of CIA officials and former administration members, you at least must acknowledge the national security, agency morale, and future administration ramifications.

2. "A “Lost” Fact in the “Rathergate” Mess — Part 1" Remember all the left-wing smears about Bush getting out of Vietnam because of his family connections? CBS News has evidence that he actually volunteered to go-- but they concealed it from the public. Yeah, that liberal media bias.

Representative Sample: Mary Mapes knew before she put the story on the air that George W. Bush, the alleged slacker, had in fact volunteered to go to Vietnam. Who says? The outside panel CBS brought into to get to the bottom of the so-called “Rathergate” mess says.

3. "Democrats afraid of their main benefactors" That would be trial lawyers. Why there won't be tort reform.

Representative Sample: Democrats will never consider tort reform because they are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the huge special interest group called the American Trial Lawyers Association (i.e. slip-and-fall ambulance chasers).

4. "The War on Terror is over" Crippled by fools who think we can't treat someone like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed too harshly without violating his "rights."

Representative Sample: He sawed the head off of Daniel Pearl as he screamed in fear and terror knowing what was happening. Then, when he finished, he held the man’s head up to the camera that was recording the event. He sent the video to the world.  KSM, by his own admission was the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks. He killed thousands of Americans on a peaceful morning.

5. "Kentucky Can’t Teach That Safety Depends On God" Kentucky's egregious violation of the establishment clause finally reversed.

Representative Sample: A Kentucky judge on Wednesday struck down a 2006 state law that required the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security to stress “dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the commonwealth.”
