Reaping What We've Sown

From Michelle Malkin: "Last week, The Washington Post reported on a new Justice Department inquiry into photographs of undercover CIA officials and other intelligence personnel taken by ACLU-sponsored researchers assisting the defense team of Guantanamo Bay detainees. According to the report, the pictures of covert American CIA officers -- "in some cases surreptitiously taken outside their homes" -- were shown to jihadi suspects tied to the 9/11 attacks in order to identify the interrogators".

Excuse me, but didn't several people get into deep doo doo for "outing" Valerie Plame, who was not actually a CIA agent, nor even covered by the outing law? The lives of these interrogators, doing what their country asked of them to protect all of us, has now been violated and endangered, endangering their families as well. Even one of the Left's favorite pundits, James Carville, sees the dangers to our country in this action.

While I regret the passing of Senator Kennedy, and respect his fight for life (which his own health care reform may not have allowed), I do believe we should all know what action he took just prior to his death. From the Politico: "Sen. Edward M. Kennedy urged Massachusetts

lawmakers last week to give Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick the power to name his successor. But with reactions to Kennedy’s proposal mixed – and with the legislature not due back until after Labor Day – it appears for now that Massachusetts will be without a second senator until a special election can be held early next year

While many states allow a governor to fill a vacant Senate state, Massachusetts Democrats changed their state’s law in 2004 to prevent then Gov. Mitt Romney – a Republican – from naming a replacement for Sen. John Kerry if he had defeated George W. Bush in the presidential race".

It seems to me that Democrats often think laws should be changed just for their benefit, not that of the country. Here is another case in point.
