Another Glowing Report on Gitmo

Hayes: Gitmo a supporting environment

"CHARLOTTE - U.S. Rep. Robin Hayes described prison conditions at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba on Monday as “a supporting environment” after a weekend visit to the facility that has drawn international criticism.

“The most astounding thing to me is how nice the prisoners are being treated,” said Hayes, whose 8th congressional district includes Cabarrus County.

The Republican congressman said during a news conference on the main campus of Central Piedmont Community College that American guards develop “human relationships” with the prisoners, provide prisoners with cold drinks and snacks and treat the Koran respectfully. Said Hayes, “They’re seeing we’re not like their leadership said we would be.”

See that last sentence? It refers to the way soldiers view their elected representatives. Until this visit all they had heard from some of our elected representitives (the ones the MSM likes to quote), is how "terrible of a job they were doing."

While I was in the miliary I witnessed quite a few congressional delegations. We always stood tall because we were taught that they were the one's who along with the President would send us to fight and defend this country. If you think that we didn't listen to what our Senators, Congressmen and women, said, you would be dead wrong. Their opinion counts.

Even though I've been out for fifteen years now, after a thirteen-year career, everytime I hear a Durbin or Kennedy or Pelosi call us "thugs" and "murders" and that our efforts are a "quagmire", it makes me mad, but it also hurts.

If they really cared about the troops as much as they say they do, they would watch what they say. Loose lips sink ships, they can also break a soldier's spirit. I know of no greater tragedy.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
