Cap’n Ed today:
Patriotic doesn’t mean correct, nor does it mean incorrect. Patriots have defended this country in its every crisis. Just because Barack Obama disagrees with people or think them foolish doesn’t mean that they have committed unpatriotic acts, which is why he began to back away from his foolish statement afterwards; he undoubtedly did not want to have to start naming names, because he had none.
[…] We should hold the hyperbole, and assume the best motives whenever possible.
Cap’n Ed yesterday, as noted by John:
Selective Leaking At The New York Times: Another War At Home?
On Wednesday, I received a proof copy of Kenneth Timmerman’s new book, Shadow Warriors: The Untold Story of Traitors, Saboteurs, and the Party of Surrender, which tells the tale of the alleged war against the Bush administration within the CIA and State Department.
[…] Timmerman’s quote from the preface seems apt today:
Many of the shadow warriors involved in this extraordinary campaign to impeach the truth have succeeded until now in keeping their role in these events hidden. They are professional bureaucrats, staff directors, intelligence operatives, National Security Council professionals, former ambassadors, and career diplomats. I will name many of them in this book for the first time, so Americans can judge their actions by the light of day.
Others — such as Senator Carl Levin (D-MI), Senator John D “Jay” Rockefeller (D-WVa), Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE), and General Brent Scowcroft — are public personalities. Until now they have managed to obscure their role in subverting the US-led war against the terrorists who attacked us on September 11 through political subterfuge, outright lies, and a complaisant media [formatting mine].
This book will correct the record and expose their maneuvering.
Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. Given Rockefeller’s lead role in this story, I find the timing of the book very propitious. It goes to the top of the pile this weekend.
Do two or more people really write the works of
Shakespeare Ed Morrissey? Will the “real” Captain Ed wake up on Monday with no memory of the weekend? Solving this mystery could provide crucial clues towards unraveling the Glenn Reynolds conundrum.
