It’s hard to tell who is more radicalized: National Public Radio or Al-Jazeera, the all-jihad all the time television network. I spent a half hour on NPR early this afternoon talking about the recent “Human Rights Watch” report that — based on three anonymous soldiers’ statements — republishes the libel that our people in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Cuba are routinely torturing detainees. The report, of course, made the Al-Jazeera front page.
It’s the usual: a compendium of anonymous allegations (“Sgt. A,” “Sgt. B,” “Officer C”) passed off as proof that we can’t trust the miltary and need more legislation and an “independent” — i.e., partisan and political — commission to investigate the military.
The only interesting thing the Human Rights Watch rep said through the whole thing was that he was glad it was picked up by Al-Jazeera. I can’t forgive people such as the HRW crew. They are making the world more dangerous for the young men and women we send in harm’s way. And for us.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
