Of the Geneva Conventions, “Torture Bans,” and Murdered Soldiers: People on both sides of the aisle need to open their eyes (June 11, 2007, The American Spectator)
Simply showing terrorists more goodwill is a means of emboldening them, not of pacifying them; restricting our actions and operations will not cause them to reciprocate, but to increase theirs even more.
Azzam Speaks Out: Al Qaeda’s Jewish-American spokesman says Iraq pullout will do nothing to stop attacks (June 7, 2007)
“Azzam the American,” the face of al Qaeda to the West (and the former Adam Yehiye Gadahn, of Orange County, CA), released a new video last week in which he listed AQ’s “Legitimate demands” for the United States and the Bush Administration.
Robert J. Dixon: Ordinary Soldier, American Hero (May 28, 2007, American Thinker)
Robert J. Dixon won’t be receiving the Medal of Honor. He didn’t go down in a hail of bullets, saving the lives of multiple soldiers and civilians in the process. Don't let this lack of glamour cause you to think that he was any less of a hero - Dixon simply did what was asked of him, and what he wanted to do; something which happened to be putting his life on the line for an ideal, and operating under conditions so dangerous and so intense that to do so one must have an inner heroism which most will never understand.
The Lost Heroes of the War on Terror (May 25, 2007, National Review Online)

The Secret Immigration Legislation: A Case of Misplaced Priorities and Mistaken Judgment (May 22, 2007, American Thinker)
This affair paints a very distressing picture of where some key individuals’ priorities really lie. Regrettably, these priorities apparently do not include taking any steps toward supplying the young men and women who are risking their lives in the War on Terror, nor are they in tune with the spirit of our Republic, which demands open, honest, and accountable government, regardless of the subject of the legislation in question.
The Great Immigration Ruse: How can the Senate vote on a Bill which has not yet been Written? (May 18, 2007, The American Spectator)
Amidst the rush to support or condemn the comprehensive immigration reform bill, one aspect of this issue was entirely overlooked: at the time in question, there was still no actual bill.

(March 2, 2007; Human Events,
People who wield such power that they have a legal say in others’ freedom – let alone in others’ lives and deaths – have an immense responsibility to exercise infinitely more wisdom, judgment, conscience, patience, reason, and moderation in the exercising of that power than the normal man
