Michelle Malkin- letters re: NY Times-Officials in NY City were clamoring for more DHS money yet their major paper was providing info that could
potentially help the enemy -an enemy that could attack New Yorkers again??
"The media aspire to be the public’s watchdog? Ever on the prowl to promote good government? Okay, here we have public officials endangering American lives. Public officials whose violation of a solemn oath to protect national defense information is both a profound offense against honor and a serious crime.
What about the public interest in that? What about the public interest in rooting out those who betray their country in wartime?"
"It is hard to see what has been accomplished by the dismantling of the old UN commission and its replacement by the new council. Like its predecessor, it seems destined to become a club of Third World abusers and sophomoric First World U.S.-haters".
"WITH the fifth anniversary of 9/11 approaching, we need another vote on Capitol Hill: a vote of thanks to the federal career employees who've kept us free from terror attacks while politicians blathered, appointees bungled and our enemies did their best to kill Americans.

This isn't to slight the great work down at the state and local levels. But it's the feds who get attacked no matter what they do. If they devise innovative ways to take down terrorists, a trash-America paper blows the secret on Page One. Yet the same voices warning so self-righteously of "threats to our civil liberties" will be the first to screech that the government failed when terrorists strike us again..."
"Since 2003," the summary states, "Coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent," which remains "hazardous and potentially lethal." So there are WMDs in Iraq, and they could kill Americans there or all over the world"
UNSCAM- Saddam's UN links to be aired in court
"LINKS between Boutros Boutros Ghali, the former UN Secretary-General, and an alleged agent for Saddam Hussein will come under the spotlight when the first American trial of a major figure in the Oil-for-Food scandal gets under way today.
The judge has ruled that prosecutors can present evidence of Dr Boutros Ghali’s relationship with Tongsun Park, a South Korean businessman on trial in New York for acting as an unregistered foreign agent for Saddam’s Iraq"
