Yesterday’s Hot Air posted an article by Doctor Zero on the necessity for democracies to be ferocious. In speaking of the defense of democracy needed by America, he states:
“To suggest that enduring six months of Obama has made the CIA more hesitant to conduct effective intelligence operations is an understatement. Democrat political double-dealing is a crime that strikes at the heart of our venerated belief in civilian command of the military. We respect this arrangement, in part, because we believe it is proper for the civilian government to exhaust all peaceful, diplomatic avenues before we commit to war. You don’t send Marine recon units to conduct subtle diplomacy. The Bush Administration did its duty in this regard – for all the liberal caterwauling about “Bush’s rush to war,” it took a hell of a lot longer than Barack Obama’s rush to nationalize the health insurance industry and triple the deficit.”
We need to seriously consider the consequences of Eric Holder’s appointment of a Special Prosecutor to investigate the CIA. This is an action more befitting of a banana republic than a democracy. The actions of the CIA saved American lives–now they are being investigated for their heroism. There were a few instances that we not within the guidelines, but they have been dealt with. Why are we investigating something that has already been sorted out?
Doctor Zero ends his article by pointing out:
“A few weeks ago, Eric Holder saw nothing wrong with Black Panthers using billy clubs to intimidate voters. Today, he thinks intimidating terrorists with cigars is a crime. Holder is the one who should be answering tough questions under oath.”
There is something seriously wrong with this picture.
