Sowell never misses. Obama is the worst president ever, probably a traitor, in addition to being a lying scoundrel, But I don't mind at all if he orders the death of bona fide traitors or Islamo fascists in the Middle East. or elsewhere outside the United States. The clueless are incomprehensible. Water-boarding's OK with rigid safeguards. Our troops endured a horrific ambush the other day. If you had very good reason to suspect someone had info to avert that ambush and didn't WB him, you are a fool unable to see the forest for the trees.

Politicians lied, people died.

Water-boarding is NOT torture and anyone who believes that it IS torture is either incredibly naive or incredibly stupid. The terrorists who were water-boarded were eligible for the death penalty and they are protected by neither the U.S. Constitution NOR the Geneva Convention. The Constitution protects ONLY Americans and the Geneva Convention protects ONLY uniformed soldiers fighting under their nation's flag. Terrorists hide in civilian clothes among the women and children. The only thing that they DO deserve is torture and summary execution afterward.

I am no Obama fan, but HE hasn't fought a war against Americans for attempting to put the principles of the Declaration of Independence into practice. Lincoln was the worst president ever.

The Declaration of Independence covered black people as well as white people. And I will go so far as to say if abortion is made illegal and states want to break away that a Civil War will again be necessary. We cannot subordinate some human beings. We are equal under God. And we cannot divide because some want to characterize others as subhuman. And I am not including immorality here. Immoral behavioral choices do not make a person a victim. It makes him and her immoral.

How do you know they are traitors? What if they are infiltrators? Spies? I do not trust OBAMA with kill orders.

Marie -- I don't trust ANY politician with the authority order the deaths of people without trial.

Neither do I trust Obama but that is beside the point. Every time an American soldier or Marine pulls his trigger and kills an enemy, his is doing it on an "Obama kill order." As CinC, every single combat kill is at his order; no exceptions.

That ambush could have been more easily avoided by not sending the American soldiers there in the first place.

Random thoughts on the passing scene:

I can't get excited by the question of whether Senator Robert Menendez had sex with a prostitute in Central America. It is her word against his -- and when it comes to a prostitute's word against a politician's word, that is too close to call.

If an American citizen went off to join Hitler's army during World War II, would there have been any question that this alone would make it legal to kill him? Why then is there an uproar about killing an American citizen who has joined terrorist organizations that...
