Dittos to Denis Miller on Harry Reid. While Alberto Gonzales should be fired for not pursuing WOT leaks to the MSM that have jeopardized our national security he should not be fired for firing political appointees for political reasons. Especially New Mexico’s U.S. attorney David C. Iglesias.

Iglesia turned down an offer by Senator Pete Domenici of experienced white-collar crime prosecutors then bungled the prosecution of Democrat State Treasurer Robert Vigil on extortion charges. He was slow in handing down corruption charges tied to the Albuquerque Metropolitan Courthouse construction so as to bolster the Dem’s ridiculous claim as the anti-corruption party. He also drug his heels when it came to prosecuting voter fraud, which incidentally helped NM Democrats. How many illegal aliens voted in the last election and who do you think they voted for? 330 noncitizens in Bexar County, TX maybe.
The names of 330 noncitizens on the voter rolls were reported by Bexar County Elections Administrator Jacque Callanen.
Those named had received jury duty summonses but told the court they weren't eligible to serve because they were not U.S. citizens.
Anyway the Senate will vote on a meaningless resolution of no-confidence and Bush will remain loyal to Gonzales. He decided not to be loyal to General Pace, and that is unfortunate, but the White House decided not to give Harry and his bunch another chance to spout their defeatist rhetoric that Miller so aptly described.

Catching Up

Been busy, son’s visiting and helping for a month so I’m getting as much done as I can before he goes back to school. Also I am taking a couple of summer school classes myself so my blogging has dropped off substantially. So what’s been happening?

Food Shortages in Venezuela reports Junglemom. No surprise there.

I, Infidel reports on how the surge continues to be successful mostly due to more Iraqi tribes flipping against Al Qaeda.
Yes things are looking up in Iraq! Folks, the only reason deaths and causalities are up is because we are on the offensive, gaining new allies from once bitter enemies, and killing al Qaeda types on ground they only wish they ruled.

Michael Yon was there when "General" Hamid was captured.

Left to Right: Lieutenant Colonel Doug Crissman; General Hamid; Sayed the interpreter.

General David Petraeus has laid down the law, abuse of power will not be tolerated. “General” Hamid, while a hero in his killing of Al Qaeda, was also crooked. The Iraqi Government wanted him out and since the whole affair would be so politically charged asked the US to do it. Seconds after this photo, LTC Doug Crissman grabbed General Hamid’s pistol and arrested him. Michael explains this whole affair that spotlights the fact that even in a war zone we and Iraq are nations of law.

Putin doesn’t like Missile Defense. Neither did Gorbachev, and from the Soviet Union’s perspective he was right, SDI was one of the straws that broke the USSR’s back. Neither does China. Well if Russia and China are against this it is surely needed. I agree with Ronald Reagan who said:
... we will put in this defensive thing [SDI] in case some place in the world a madman some day tries to create these weapons again —— nuclear weapons —— because, remember, we all know how to make them now. So, you can't do away with that information, but we would all be safe knowing that if such a madman project is ever attempted there isn't any of us that couldn't defend ourselves against it.

And he didn't even kmow Ahmadinajad.
