Let's Dare Call It Treason

Tuesday, 31 May 2005 12:00 AM

Based on the usual conglomeration of leaks from anonymous sources, comments from Times-friendly leftist academics, named and unnamed former and current CIA agents, and employees of Aero Contractors Ltd. – the reported CIA airline – the Times expose alleges:

"When the Central Intelligence Agency wants to grab a suspected member of Al Qaeda overseas and deliver him to interrogators in another country, an Aero Contractors plane often does the job. If agency experts need to fly overseas in a hurry after the capture of a prized prisoner, a plane will depart Johnston County [the alleged CIA airport in North Carolina] and stop at Dulles Airport outside Washington to pick up the C.I.A. team on the way."

Along the way, the story manages to provide an inventory of Aero's jet fleet, break the cover of CIA rural hideaways, front companies and shell corporations, and reveal past covert operations, all of which provide fodder for foreign groups and nations anxious to portray the U.S. as a practitioner of the blackest of the black arts or to bolster their claims that the U.S. routinely allows allied nations to torture its detainees. Not to mention, of course, also supplying the enemy with valuable information on possible targets.

The Times almost salivates over the Amnesty International allegation, to which it gives generous space in the article "U.S. 'Thumbs Its Nose' at Rights, Amnesty Says." The article says that the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo is a "gulag" – the Soviet network of concentration camps where millions perished – and provides a sidebar on the death of two detainees in the Bagram facility in Iraq.

If you think that these disclosures are an accident, or merely examples of dogged investigative journalism, you have another think coming. They're deliberate, and calculated to do as much harm as possible to the U.S. efforts to fight the war against Islamofascist terrorism.

It is treason, unadorned, and let's dare to call it that.

By giving any credence to the torture allegations, the Times ignores the instructions in what the Washington Times described as "al Qaeda's most extensive manual for how to wage war," found in a raid on an al Qaeda cell in Manchester, England, by British authorities.

A directive lists one terrorist mission as "spreading rumors and writing statements that instigate people against the enemy." If captured, the manual states, "At the beginning of the trial ... the brothers must insist on proving that torture was inflicted on them by state security before the judge. Complain of mistreatment while in prison." The handbook instructs commanders to make sure operatives, or "brothers," understand what to say if captured.

And when they say it, the Times is all ears.

In addition to bringing down the effort to protect Americans from worldwide terrorist attacks a la 9/11, the assault by the Times and the rest of big media on the war in Iraq and the pacification of Afghanistan is an attack on their hated foe, the administration of George W. Bush – who in their eyes is a greater enemy of mankind than Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein put together.

It is in their best interests to see the U.S. fall flat on its face in the Middle East, because they believe it will result in George Bush falling flat on his face at home.

Besides, the fallen Hussein Ba'athest party was a socialist party, and the Marxist-dominated New York Times must surely subscribe to the old communist adage of having "no enemies to the left."

They are correct in seeing President Bush as their real enemy and his policies, foreign and domestic, as initiatives that must be stopped dead in their tracks. George Bush and the conservative majority that supports him pose the greatest threat to the realization of their incompletely fulfilled dream of an America ruled by a Marxist elite.

That's what's behind their ongoing flirtation with outright treason. It can be seen not only in the current battles now being waged on Capitol Hill, but also in the constant drumbeat of slander and deception being waged against the GOP and conservatives around the nation.

One need only to look at the machinations of the National Socialist Democrat Abortion Party (NSDAP) in the battle over judicial nominations. What's at stake here is the potential loosening of the grip the Marxists now hold on the federal and state judiciary.

Unable to enact the programs and policies of their Marxist and secular agenda through legislative action, they have been able to put into place judges who will turn their backs on the Constitution and do the job for them, often ruling against the popular will as expressed through the electoral process.

With scores of empty seats on the federal bench, and facing at least one or two vacancies on the United States Supreme Court, President Bush has an opportunity to redress the imbalance now favoring the extreme left and appoint constitutionalist jurists who will interpret the Constitution as it was written and not as they wish it were written.

No matter what it takes, this must not be allowed to happen, because if it does, almost a century of Marxist advances can begin to be undone in one fell swoop.

So, too, it is with the war on Islamic terrorism. Success in that war will redound to the credit of President Bush and his supporters, thus strengthening him in his efforts to enact his domestic agenda.

So, if it takes a little treason, the Times will make the most of it.
