Jim McDermott, a Democrat from Washington, voiced his "deep concern" about an ad showing mug shots of international terrorists, and asked the FBI chief to "reconsider publicizing" it. He goes on to say that "sixteen photos of wanted terrorists is not only offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities, but it encourages racial and religious profiling." Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier, speaking on MSNBC recently, says the Taliban aren't terrorists, rather, they're "part of the fabric of Afghanistan." Her basis for this comment defies logic and fact. Mr. Obama and cronies negotiate with the Taliban (who are indeed terrorists) to swap five war criminals for an apparent deserter who appears to be in good health. How many more years of this liberal ideology coupled with gross lack of judgment and wisdom can our country absorb?
