The more I see of this gal, the more I like her, she has the fortitude to tell it like it is, regardless of what some people might think of her, the conservatives need more people like her.
We talked yesterday, just as the program was ending we got the news,
Stephen Hayes, at the Weekly Standard on his blog mentioned that
terrorist detainees in Afghanistan are being read their Miranda
rights. This signals a huge shift once again that fighting terrorism
is a criminal enterprise. It brings back the old days of the way the
Clinton administration went about it. But when you start Mirandizing
noncitizens, especially foreign enemy combatants on the battlefield,
when you start Mirandizing them, you are granting them constitutional
rights when they are not citizens. Now, if you can do that, if you can
grant a constitutional right and Mirandize a foreign terrorist, enemy
combatant, then I guess you can automatically grant citizenship to
people who are not citizens, couldn’t you?
Andy McCarthy has
written much about this at National Review Online, and he actually goes
back and says one of the people that can be blamed for this is Senator
McCain. I don’t have his story right in front of me, but Senator
McCain supported — back when McCain was on his anti-torture bandwagon
and was trying to curry favor with people on the left to get their
votes by agreeing that the US tortured people. One of the ways that
McCain sought to prevent torture and make it illegal, which it always
has been anyway, was to make it possible for what the Obama
administration is doing. And they did this on the quiet. It took a
member of Congress finding this out. Sarah Palin warned of this in her
acceptance speech at St. Paul, the Republican convention, last
Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America,
and he’s worried that someone won’t read ’em their rights.
RUSH: It’s exactly right. Now, Obama, on March 22nd, this year, on 60 Minutes, said this.
Now, do these folks deserve Miranda rights? Do they deserve to be
treated like a shoplifter down the block? Of course not.
Well, there you have it, there’s Barack Obama, March 22nd, “No, they
don’t deserve Miranda rights.” They’re getting ’em. They are being
Mirandized in Afghanistan today. So once again it’s not what Obama
says; it’s how he says it that appeals to people. Yesterday this all
came up at the afternoon press briefing with the most brilliant and
articulate press secretary we’ve ever had, according to several in the
government-run media. Major Garrett of Fox News said, “Do you know if
it’s true or untrue that Miranda rights are read to terrorists in
GIBBS: I have no reason to — to disbelieve a
member of Congress, but I don’t know any of the circumstances that are
involved around it.
REPORTER: Would it come as a surprise to the White House that that’s what would be happening?
GIBBS: It’s not a surprise to me.
Not a surprise. Yet your boss said on March 22nd that they don’t
deserve Miranda rights. And Gibbs says, yes, he’s not surprised to him
that it’s happening, but that he didn’t know it. So they aren’t
denying it. And of course it requires us to go back and find Obama
saying that they don’t deserve Miranda rights on 60 Minutes in March
because government-controlled media is not going to do it.
