On Capitol Hill, there’s a war being fought over the War on Terror, and so far, Republicans are winning. Or at least they’re winning the Battle of Miranda.
GOP lawmakers believe they are having some success in the effort to stiffen the spine of the Obama administration as it makes policy for dealing with captured terrorist suspects in the future. Even as the administration defends its decision to grant accused Detroit bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab the right to remain silent, the president himself is hinting that things might be done differently in the future.

No one in the Obama administration is going to acknowledge that our foreign policy in the Middle East has alienated many Arabs.
The U.S. pro-Israel policy and our shocking neglect of the beleaguered Palestinians underlie almost every initiative or tactical tilt that comes out of Washington.

Having a Yemen visa stamped in my passport has brought wary questions from border officials over the past few years. Nowadays I’ll be lucky if I don’t get strip-searched. What a difference a botched terrorist attack makes.

A grim-faced President Barack Obama declared Tuesday there was a deep failure of national intelligence in the botched Christmas Day airliner terror attack over Detroit, telling the nation the government had enough information to thwart potential disaster but could not “connect those dots.”
Speaking after a blunt meeting with his security team, Obama said there had been even more “red flags” than had already been acknowledged: that an al-Qaida affiliate in the Arabian Peninsula planned to strike the United States and that it was working with the man who ended up accused of trying to blow up a plane with nearly 300 passengers and crew aboard.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday that the intelligence community had bits of information that should have been pieced together that would have triggered “red flags” and possibly prevented the Christmas Day attempted terror attack on a Detroit-bound airliner.
“There was a mix of human and systemic failures that contributed to this potential catastrophic breach of security,” Obama said.

President Barack Obama on Monday vowed to use “every element of our national power” to keep Americans safe and said the failed Christmas Day plot to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner was “a serious reminder” of the need to continually adapt security measures against changing terrorist threats.

What we are led to believe by an often lazy and Obama-supporting big media, enabled by a deliberately ignorant public that lacks, rather than longs, for the truth, is not as it first seems. Take just one example.
Remember the four Chinese Uighur released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay? They were flown to Bermuda where they now reside under conditions that are better than any they might have imagined. The storyline cast the men as innocent victims of a military terrorist sweep in Afghanistan.

NEW YORK (AP) — A Lebanese-born Swede has been sentenced to life in prison for plotting to open a terrorism training camp in Oregon.
U.S. District Judge John Keenan sentenced Oussama Kassir on Tuesday in New York. He was convicted in May of supporting al-Qaida by trying to help open the camp in Bly, Ore., in 1999.
Three British Muslims were convicted Monday of plotting to murder thousands by downing at least seven trans-Atlantic airliners in simultaneous attacks designed by al-Qaida to be the deadliest terrorist strike since Sept. 11, 2001.
