Carol Platt Liebau: Terror Bust

Terror Bust

Seven Americans have been arrested as part of a terrorist plot to attack the Sears Tower and a federal building in Miami.

For my part, I'm glad that the Democrats -- obsessed with "domestic wiretapping" and "intrusive" law enforcement -- aren't in charge.

Well this, is the thanks we get!

The new PM wants to grant those killing our soldier amnesty!

THE Iraqi Government will announce a sweeping peace plan as early as Sunday in a last-ditch effort to end the Sunni insurgency that has taken the country to the brink of civil war.

But one obstacle is whether the US would be willing to grant an amnesty to insurgents who have killed US soldiers but who are not members of extreme groups such as al-Qaeda. The Bush Administration is thought to be split on the issue.

In Washington, Senate Democrats offered a resolution Thursday demanding that President Bush repudiate the amnesty proposal regarding those who attacked American forces.

Kerry's resolution is back on the table. The Iraq PM will propose....

The Government will promise a finite, UN-approved timeline for the withdrawal of all foreign troops from Iraq; a halt to US operations against insurgent strongholds; an end to human rights violations, including those by coalition troops; and compensation for victims of attacks by terrorists or Iraqi and coalition forces.

..."not to be disturbed by U. S. authority so long as they observe their paroles and the laws in force where they may reside."

That is the language of the amnesty that US Grant, on instructions from Lincoln, extended to the Army of Northern Virginia and which served as a model for other Confederate forces, including, I believe, irregulars and bushwhackers in Missouri.

You don't make peace with your friends; you make it with your enemies.

Are these your words or are they a quote from someone else's writings?

But it's ok for us to just pull out of Iraq on a time table? I really can't understand the Dem's thought process...
I guess it's ok not to bring those who attacked American forces to justice as long as you don't admit or agree that that's what you're doing....
Bizarre.

suek,

But the Iraqi PM's Peace Plan includes a timeline that would be established by the UN for all foreign forces to leave Iraq. Certianly the PM is working with our Ambassador who is in communications with the highest people in the administration.

Bizarre, indeed!

There's a VAST difference between helping Iraq establish itself and then leaving when they are able to take care of themselves and claiming "we can't win" and leaving immediately regardless of the conditions on the ground.

When Iraq can stand on its own with a democratically elected government, then the Bush doctrine has been successful.

Carol, the people arrested can't be terrorists. You you, the President and all the rest of the right wing noise machine assured us that "We are fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here."

Yet another broken promise.

twister, you let 'em in, we need to indict you. At least put you somewhere were you can't hurt yourself.

CoPioneer what in the world is "you let 'em in" supposed to mean? Are you under the mistaken impression that I work for the DHS or the INS?

Although it wouldn't be the first time you just rambled on incoherently, I'm just curious if this inane statement was supposed to mean something.
