Has Anyone Told the Left We Are At War?
True to their
lack of understanding of the bigger picture the New York Times is publishing a story about abuse of prisoners.

suspect named Jamadi, who just happened to be a suspect in the attack of the IRC in late 2003, was hit in the head with the
butt of one of the SEALS rifles. Jamadi later died of a blot clot to the head and it is believed that it was a result of the

this to them and it may come as a shock to them but this is a WAR! And as such
the rules that would apply to civilian populations and governments cannot simply be applied here. Would you have been as eager
to prosecute the terrorist had he killed those 4 Navy SEALS? More then likely

I just wonder
why these same groups that are constantly calling us on the carpet for alleged maltreatment of prisoners were not as outraged
when the beheading of the American businessman occurred. And there was not a peep about the four contractors that were killed
and hung up for display. And recently the murder of two Frenchman journalists
has yet to be met with as much as a sound byte by these folks.
