Don’t Court Martial the SEAL Three
Kicking off the program Sean mentioned a terrific article written by Jed Babbin from HumanEvents.com. Babbin writes about three Navy SEALs who are being arraigned on charges they abused an Iraqi terrorist after they captured him three months ago. The three SEALs were part of a team that captured one of the most-wanted terrorists in Iraq, Ahmed Hashim Abed. Abed is thought to be the mastermind behind the horrific ambush on Blackwater security guards in which four were murdered, their bodies mutilated and then hung from a bridge in Fallujah. The facts of the case are not entirely clear. The SEALs at some point during the transfer process questioned Abed after which he complained of mistreatment. There was some blood on his clothes but it’s not clear when it appeared. “This is nuts!” an incredulous Sean said after reading Babbin’s article. “Do you realize we’re not going to have any intelligence left and we’re not going to have anyone on the batt lefield anymore willing to take a risk. They’re never going to be able to do their job. You’ve GOT to be able to interrogate terrorism suspects! You know why? Because you might save the lives of other soldiers or even prevent another terrorist attack,” said Sean.
Out The Door
According to a report by Radaronline.com, Tiger Woods’ wife has moved out of the couple’s palatial Florida home. This latest news comes on the heels of more than a week of reports about women who’ve had relationships with the world’s number one golfer. The total now stands at nine. “The funny thing,” a thoroughly disgusted Sean added, “Is that all of these women Tiger supposedly had relationships with, are nowhere near as good looking as his wife. As confusing and confounding as women can be sometimes, they’re a beautiful complement to life. They ought to be protected by men.”
Copenhagen Climate Summit: 1,200 Limos & 140 Private Planes
The airport in Copenhagen (the city hosting this week’s Climate Summit) is expecting up to 140 extra private jets. The eleven-day conference, including the participants’ travel, will create a total of 41,000 tons of “carbon dioxide equivalent.” The real kicker is that all of the world’s leaders looking to “save the world” have already agreed this conference will not produce any kind of binding deal. There seems to be quite a difference between what our leaders say and what they do. “If our energy secretary has his way we may end up painting our roofs white and have our plasma TVs taken away from us,” Sean added. “It’s ok for us to go back to the horse and buggy days as they travel around in their private planes! It reminds me of the olden days of monarchs and nobles dictating how their servants are to live.”
