    There's another great new story about the new DoJ and DNA testing, but I'm waiting for it to go from the law blogs to a news source so I can start a new thread.

    Is it any shock the lefties have nothing to say? TNE, ADK... the loudest screamers about Bush's "crimes" and here is their hero... "committing" the same crimes. They are hosed, completely.

    Obama is picking up where Bush left off, because the game remains the same. It is extremely foolish for people to assume they know what is going on in this world better than those in the intelligencia circle or the White House. This includes "Senator" Obama. There is information only privy to a select few. And this is because wider dissimenation of sensitive information only encourages the possibility for our enemies to learn from our "openness." Now that "President" Obama has entered the White House and can see for himself what is going on, his "change we can believe in" will become more practical.

    I told everyone that GITMO is not so cut and dry as they think. I warned them that this war is generational. And I told them that this war is global wide, not confined to the wastelands of Afghanistan. Of late, people have been informed of China's issues with one of their providences. Turns out some of the GITMO prisoners were captured for seeking to rebel against Chinese oppression. Not so cut and dry is it? We backed Islamic warriors against an oppresive country (Soviet Union) once before only to have to battle them later didn't we? Are today's Islamic warriors against China our friends and will we be paid back later with violence for our troubles? And what of the HOA, which is a region where Al-Queda has turned for recruitment now that the pool of ignorant suicidal minds in the Middle East has been slaughtered off in the past 8 years. But through it all, the greatest pain in the ass has been trying to please the global spectator bent on saving as much of the enemy as possible through lawyers, constitutions, human rights talks, and global BS harmony and love.

    My faith in Obama, pre-election, was that underneath the slick talk and fantasy rhetoric, he is very smart. He knows he can't change the game. But unlike President Bush, he will play it with a smile and smelling sweet. Underneath both politicians, is the military man playing the same 'ole game. And despite my attempts to show people the light, they continue to cling to partisan politics and BS just to satisfy their visions about what the world should be with complete disregard for what it is and what it takes.

    I was thrilled when Obama got elected. Because I knew that it would seperate the political slaves from the truth seekers.

    It was a good move by Bush, and I am impressed and relieved that Obama sees it the same way. I said Obama would always get a fair shake from me, and on this particular issue I salute the man. That and his pick for NSA.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, Obama is going to do well on foreign policy. I especially liked his move to keep Gates as the Secretary of Defense; very sensible. The only problem is that while he's doing well abroad America will crumble from the inside-out.

    I have no doubt whatsoever that this is not what he wishes but what he was told legally is.

    Instead of making it an issue on top of all the other issues that are not going well for him..this one was an easy one to sidestep for now.

    "I don' like it and want it changed but politically atm its not a good time. Lets just follow what is for now and change it later"
    Or words to that effects in the meeting with advisors when the decision was made.



    The hypocrisy of the left on this though is very very loud and transparent.

    Well, he was voted in based on the economy. And he knows he will get another 4 years based on this.

    Regardless of whether the attacks against Obama are justified or based on actual substance anymore, what's the point? When I go into a thread and immediately see the usual "I guess this is the CHANGE we HOPED for" or "Thou shalt not question the Messiah!" along with the usual line of litanies using "lefty," and "liberal" and nearly half of posts ending with ever insightful "FAIL", well, if the shoe were on the other foot would you bother participating anymore?
