Where are real jour­nal­ists when you need them?

How can any­one say with a straight face that our gov­ern­ment is con­cerned about the Is­lamic State at­tack­ing us on the home front when it keeps our south­ern bor­der wide open and por­trayed the Fort Hood, Texas, at­tack as common “work­place vi­o­lence?

We armed and funded vari­ants of th­ese Mus­lim ex­trem­ists as they top­pled Egypt and took out Libya and are now work­ing on top­pling the gov­ern­ment of Syria for Saudi Ara­bia. Saudi Ara­bia is the same coun­try im­pli­cated in the 9/11 Com­mis­sion re­port for the train­ing and hous­ing of the ter­ror­ists who flew planes into our build­ings on Sept. 11, 2001.

Pres­i­dent Obama is “sur­prised” that the Is­lamic State is so pow­er­ful — now, after he armed the ter­ror­ists. Can you imag­ine how pow­er­ful the Is­lamic State would be had Mr. Obama and Sens. John McCain and Lind­sey Gra­ham got­ten their way and bombed Syria?

Now-re­tired Gen. Wes­ley K. Clark was told 10 days after Sept. 11, 2001, by his suc­ces­sor that the U.S. gov­ern­ment had al­ready for­mu­lated a “plan” to take out “Iraq, and then Syria, Le­banon, Libya, So­ma­lia, Su­dan and, fin­ish­ing off, Iran.” Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter David Cameron re­cently said be­fore the United Na­tions that any­one who ques­tions the of­fi­cial ver­sion of Sept. 11, 2001, is just as dan­ger­ous as the Is­lamic State.

Where is a real lib­eral when you need one? For that mat­ter, where is a real jour­nal­ist when you need one?
