Terror And Liberals (Judge Mukasey Speaks)
American Rattlesnake ^ | June 89 2016 | Gerard Perry

Most of you familiar with the work of Michael Mukasey probably remember him as the federal judge who granted Jose Padilla, an Al Qaeda agent designated an enemy combatant by the Bush administration, access to counsel during his detention in a U.S. military brig. Others might recall his refusal to declare waterboarding synonymous with torture during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings prior to his confirmation as Attorney General. However, the defining moment of his legal career was his oversight of the trial of the 1st World Trade Center bombing conspirators, led by The Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman.

It was this historic trial, as well as its implications for American society, which was the primary focus of Judge Mukasey’s speech to the Gertrude and Morrison Parker West Side Republican Club this past Tuesday. As he explained to a standing room only audience, this criminal conspiracy case was a milestone in our nation’s history, because it marked the first time that we learned of a jihadist cell bent on sowing terror, fear and destruction on American soil. Unfortunately, the lessons gleaned from that trial were largely lost on the immense federal bureaucracy ostensibly charged with protecting the lives and security of American citizens.

An on target article.

After spending years studying Islam from every angle I realized right after 9-11 we were in a religiously driven war.

This should become obvious to us Americans since we now have authors now like Bill Warner, Robert Spencer, Stephen Coughlin, Mark Gabrielle and many more who can make the case against Islam and the Islamic threat to us Kafirs.
Probably Allah and Muhammed make the best case if you read the Koran and Hadiths on the basics of Islam.

Unfortunately the Islamic problem is obscured and deflected by political leaders and religious leaders, and military leaders who won't speak up.

I see some of that changing, and hope we do something about it before it is too late. -Tom
