    SNIPPET: "There are some good reasons for allowing at least a few jihadi forums to operate." SNIPPET: "However, there are limits to our ability to exploit all the intelligence opportunities a forum may present. To put it another way, jihadi forums contribute to future terrorism in ways that are unpredictable and/or beyond our ability to control. This would be the view held by those other government agencies who prefer to seek out and destroy forums and to take down forum activists. For my part, I can live with keeping online those forums we have sufficient access to monitor and resources...
  • Liberals: Maybe We Aren't As Patriotic As Republicans After All

    The Patriot Room ^ | December 26, 2008 | Bill Dupray
    Bookmark this page for whenever you question a liberal's patriotism and he howls like like a scorched monkey. In an L.A. Times op-ed, Joel Stein leaks some Liberal state secrets. I don't love America. That's what conservatives are always telling liberals like me. Their love, they insist, is truer, deeper and more complete. Then liberals, like all people who are accused of not loving something, stammer, get defensive and try to have sex with America even though America will then accuse us of wanting it for its body and not its soul. When America gets like that, there's no winning....
  • LA Times Columnist Joel Stein: Christianity is a "Death Cult"

    An October 17, 2006, op-ed by Los Angeles Times columnist Joel "I Don't Support Our Troops" Stein condescendingly slams Christianity as a "death cult." Writing a lippy account of a Presbyterian service he had recently attended, Stein belches, "The first thing I noticed about church was how much like PBS it was. The lighting was dim, the speakers talked slowly, the songs were dated, there were a lot of references to reading material and every so often my eye line was interrupted by envelopes asking me to donate money. Also, I kept falling asleep." And (bold added), "I'd never realized...

    If you thought the folks at the Los Angeles Times would use the Fourth of July to take a day off from spewing their usual bias and vitriol, think again. Readers of today's op-ed page (Tuesday, July 4, 2006) in the Times are greeted to this piece of bitterness by Mark Kurlansky, "Fathers don't always know best" (The title comes from the print edition; online, the title is, "WWFFD? Who cares?" We have already written about the discrepancy between the print and online titles at the Times here.).Apparently, Kurlansky is not too impressed by the very people who founded our...

    "State of disunion" By Oliver NorthJan 27, 2006 PORT HUENEME, CALIF. -- This sprawling U.S. Navy Construction Center, 60 miles north of Los Angeles, is "home port" for thousands of "Sea-Bees" who are deployed in the global war on terror. These "warriors who build" with a legendary "can-do" spirit are busy repairing schools and hospitals in Iraq, constructing roads and runways in Afghanistan and helping to forge a safer future in places most Americans can't even pronounce. Though most of the men and women in the Naval Mobile Construction Battalions are reservists with good private sector jobs, all I have spoken...

    With scribes like regular Los Angeles Times columnist, Joel Stein, picking away at the backbone of American democracy, Osama Bin Laden has something to crow about. One can easily imagine the cave echoes of the rousing cheer from Bin Laden when he catches wind of Stein’s Tuesday column Warriors and Wusses, which begins with the words, "I DON’T SUPPORT OUR TROOPS." Wonder what they’re adding to the café lattes in funky L.A.? The anti-troops piece hit its mark when read by Melanie Morgan of Move America Forward.

    A Los Angeles Times columnist has precipitated a firestorm of outrage by proclaiming that he doesn't support the troops serving in Iraq because they've become "a fighting tool of American imperialism." On Tuesday, LA Times columnist Joel Stein began his screed with the words: "I DON'T SUPPORT our troops . . . "Being against the war and saying you support the troops is one of the wussiest positions the pacifists have ever taken . . . It's as if the one lesson they took away from Vietnam wasn't to avoid foreign conflicts with no pressing national interest but to remember...

    NEW YORK Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein says he stands by his Tuesday column after being what he called "bombarded" with email. Stein, the former Time magazine staff writer, had written a column that began, "I don't support our troops." Stein tells Reuters he does not regret writing it and stands by the premise. The Times online site has put up a poll on the subject, in its opinion sections, asking readers if someone can oppose the war but support the troops, yes or no? It also offers a third choice: "I don't know, Why did you hire Joel...

    All rightie. By now, most of us are familiar with the controversial LA Times article titled "I don't Support our Troops" written by columnist Joel Stein. Many have heard the audio or read the transcript (www.radioblogger.com) of nationally syndicated radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt's interview with Stein. Others may have heard one of the presumably several additional interviews Stein gave to other local, non-syndicated talkers, such as Dom Giordano out of Philadelphia's "Big Talker" 1210AM WPHT. I have listened to both Hewitt's interview--as well as Giordano's--and I have an interesting take on Stein's defense you may be interested in...

    Here's the audio and transcript of Hugh's interview with Joel Stein. It's another glaring example of why the Times is the worst newspaper in America: HH: Welcome now Joel Stein of the Los Angeles Times, columnist there. Hi, Joel. Welcome to the Hugh Hewitt Show. JS: Hey, thanks for having me. HH: You wrote a very controversial column today, and I want to talk about it. But first, some background. How long have you been a columnist for the L.A. Times? JS: A little more than a year. HH: All right. And you're a graduate of Stanford, right? What year?...

    Joel Stein of the Los Angeles Times wrote an op-ed today (hat tip to the Drudge Report) entitled “Warriors and Wusses.” In it, he made his feelings about the war in Iraq quite clear in the opening sentence: “I don't support our troops.” In the heart of his piece, he elaborated: “But I'm not for the war. And being against the war and saying you support the troops is one of the wussiest positions the pacifists have ever taken — and they're wussy by definition. It's as if the one lesson they took away from Vietnam wasn't to avoid foreign...

    Warriors and wusses I DON'T SUPPORT our troops. This is a particularly difficult opinion to have, especially if you are the kind of person who likes to put bumper stickers on his car. Supporting the troops is a position that even Calvin is unwilling to urinate on. I'm sure I'd like the troops. They seem gutsy, young and up for anything. If you're wandering into a recruiter's office and signing up for eight years of unknown danger, I want to hang with you in Vegas. And I've got no problem with other people — the ones who were for the...

    Joel Stein is a 30-something columnist for the Los Angeles Times, for which he writes weekly. His offering today, "Warriors and Wusses" provoked a huge outpouring of e-mail to me. I hadn't even read the piece --many, many people who subscribe to the Times don't read much of it-- but e-mail pored in demanding that I post a response. Upon reading it, I could understand the anger. here are some key graphs: "I DON'T SUPPORT our troops. This is a particularly difficult opinion to have, especially if you are the kind of person who likes to put bumper stickers on...
