Bubba Goes Berzerk

See the video clip here.

Clintoon is obviously counting on the American public to have a short memory. Fortunately, blogs like Ace of Spades are around to easily deconstruct the disingenuous finger wagger. (Warning: some foul language)

Update(9/24/06): Remember the last time we all saw Bubba Bill wagging his finger? (link via Michelle Malkin)

Update 2(9/24/06): Fox News never grilled Bush Administration officials about going after bin Laden before 9/11? The heck it didn't, Bubba.

It Seems "Rough" Interrogation Works

Bill O'Reilly had ABC investigative reporter Brian Ross on tonight, and according to Ross, the controversial interrogation methods (e.g., waterboarding) that the CIA has been widely rumored to be using on captured terrorists like Khalid Shaikh Mohammed has produced information that led to the breakup of at least 14 planned terrorist attacks against the United States. 14! One of the apparent targets of these planned attacks was the historic Library Tower in downtown Los Angeles.

When some so-called anti-torture human rights advocate, whose name escapes me, was confronted with this information on O'Reilly, the best response that she could give was: How do we know that we couldn't have gotten the information in a less drastic manner? Exactly what that less drastic manner is, she (predictably) didn't say, nor would she answer the question of whether she would allow a captured terrorist to be roughed up for information if doing so would save the life of a loved one. No better friend of the terrorists is this woman.

Correction: It wasn't 14 planned terrorist attacks that were thrwarted, but 14 cases where reportedly rough interrogation tactics were used, and which resulted in information that led to the breakup of several planned attacks, including one against the Library Tower.
Dehellenization and Protestantism

In the very same speech from Pope BXVI that adherents of the Religion O'Rage are all riled up about comes this illuminating comment about the dehellenization of religion (Christianity specifically):

Dehellenization first emerges in connection with the fundamental postulates of the Reformation in the 16th century. Looking at the tradition of scholastic theology, the Reformers thought they were confronted with a faith system totally conditioned by philosophy, that is to say an articulation of the faith based on an alien system of thought. As a result, faith no longer appeared as a living historical Word but as one element of an overarching philosophical system. The principle of sola scriptura, on the other hand, sought faith in its pure, primordial form, as originally found in the biblical Word. Metaphysics appeared as a premise derived from another source, from which faith had to be liberated in order to become once more fully itself. When Kant stated that he needed to set thinking aside in order to make room for faith, he carried this program forward with a radicalism that the Reformers could never have foreseen. He thus anchored faith exclusively in practical reason, denying it access to reality as a whole.

What the pope is essentially suggesting here is that Protestantism is a historical cause of the separation of faith from reason. This is quite an indictment, which I am quite sure many Protestants, Fundamentalists in particular, would take umbrage with. Despite such disagreement, though, I'm fairly confident that there will be no worldwide Protestant fatwas to assasinate the pope or burn Catholic church buildings. At most, we might see an offensive anti-Catholic tract by Jack Chick, which I personally find more amusing than anything else.

Did Pat Buchanan Write His Script?

Iranian President, and known Holocaust Denier, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks directly with the al-Jazeera like American MSM in a dinstinctly Buchananesque manner:

President Bush’s policies in the Middle East are “moving the world toward war,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday, maintaining that Iran was a peaceful nation that merely wanted to be left alone to “stand on its [own] feet.”

“The U.S. government thinks that it’s still the period after World War II,” Ahmadinejad said in an interview with Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor of “NBC Nightly News,” a mindset that led Bush to believe that he “can rule, therefore, over the rest of the world.”

Stick to Your Day Job Mark

Exhibit number 23923283 that when it comes to foreign policy and the law, uber-Catholic apologist Mark Shea doesn't know sh!t. His suggestion that the Bush Administration's desire to narrow (i.e., clarify) the meaning of the word "torture" in Article 3 of the Geneva Convention necessarily amounts to a desire to codify or sanctify Abu Ghraib is just over the top idiotic. Though I am not hopeful it will ever happen, I'd like to know how Shea doesn't think having his blog or one of his books seen by an inmate down at Club Gitmo couldn't fall under Article 3. After that, I'd like to know what alternative solution Shea has for interrogating terrorists who want to KILL not only him, but his wife, kids, and pets.

Of course, actually proposing anything would require Shea to obtain and possess some knowledge of information beyond what is reported in the very same MSM he regularly lambastes for knowing sh!t about Christianity. Why bother doing this, when ignorantly bitching and moaning is so much easier.
