Bill Clinton, in his bitter tirade to Chris Mathews, has admitted to breaking both Federal and International Laws by ordering the assassination of
Usama Bin Laden! Whereas this is not terribly suprising that he broke the law, it is suprising that he has admitted as much in his sorry attempt to
rewrite history on his handling of terrorism under his watch.
Consider the following:
— Executive Order 11905, signed Feb. 18, 1976, by President Gerald Ford in response to the Church Committee. Section 5(g) of that order states "no
employee of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, political assassination."
— Section 2-305 of Executive Order 12036, signed by President Jimmy Carter on Jan. 24, 1978, broadens the prohibition from "political
assassination" to "assassination" generally.
— Executive Order 12333, signed by President Ronald Reagan on Dec. 4, 1981, specifies that assassination is against the law and contrary to U.S.
policy. Section 2.11 of the order, which is labeled "Prohibition on Assassination," says "no person employed by or acting on behalf of the United
States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination." The next section (Section 2.12) states "no agency of the Intelligence
Community shall participate in or request any person to undertake activities forbidden by this Order."
When the Rev. Pat Roberts called for the elimination of dictator Hugo Chavez, the response was deafening from the Democracts who demanded hearings and
accountability for his comments. Yet they fail to understand that Rev. Roberts does NOT have the power nor the authority to authorize or order such
an act, whereas former President Clinton did and had done so. Let us see if they hold their own to the same standard.
Finally, covert actions undertaken by the CIA are classified and are NOT for public consumption. Clinton's mere mention of these orders violates his
oath to hold such information as classified until such time that an executive order declassifies them; this has not happened. Certainly such
revelations by a former head of state will prove much more damaging to this great nation that the Plame-gate affair - which the Democrats pursued with
much zeal. Their response to this recent leak has been deafening silence.
Is it any wonder then that the American people don't take the Democrat's claims of national security seriously? They have demonstrated hypocrisy
repeatedly in the face of politics. Such tirades by a former President will certainly weaken America's position of moral authority throughout the
entire world and give the Jihadists more ammunition to continue their assualt our fewwdoms and our liberty.
Moreover, the "Analysis" offered by our national media has been anemic at best regarding this issue. The talking heads have addressed this latest
revelation as if it were a prize fight between Fox news anchor Chris Mathews and the former President, positing who "won" the exchange without
evaluating any of it in context. No suprise really, considering the left-leaning tendencies of said media. They shouldn't be shocked as their
ratings and circulation plummet as true Americans, like myself, begin to seek more careful and honest analysis of the daily events which affect our
The continued effort of the left to rewrite history and absolve themselves from any responsibility with respect to 9/11 and the current war in which
we are engaged is tantamount to treason and should be prosecuted as such. Let us see if the Democrats will hold accountable those amongst them who
are guilty of much more agregious crimes than those they so vigorously pursue in political opposition; this will be testimony to their continued
hypocrisy and proof of their desire to preserve party over country.
