We Willingly Wear

Last week the New York Times and some Democratic congressmen called for the impeachment of Federal Judge Jay Bybee. Frank Rich called for “fair trials that at long last uphold and reclaim our nation’s commitment to the rule of law” identifying Judge Bybee as one of the villains he wants punished because “as an assistant attorney general, he was the author of the Aug. 1, 2002, memo endorsing in lengthy, prurient detail interrogation ‘techniques’ like ‘facial slap (insult slap)’ and ‘insects placed in a confinement box.’” Cue the pitchforks and torches (and get rid of those caterpillars while you’re at it).
On numerous leftwing websites bloggers and commenters have invoked Nuremberg, saying that following orders to carry out the enhanced interrogation techniques is no excuse. One headline even read “The USA Hung’em at Nuremberg – The USA Hung Saddam – HANG BYBEE!”
Let's do a little balancing here. Nazis killed millions. America made sure that no permanent damage was done. Saddam killed millions. America made sure no permanent damage was done. Yet Democrats on the left want to HANG BYBEE! They want to hang him for making sure that our enhanced techniques DID NO PERMANENT DAMAGE!
There is no way to ignore the reality. Those Democrats who are ready to hang Bybee are ready to KILL HIM for the simple fact that he defended America. Who can doubt that they are enemies of our nation and would be ready to kill him (and you) for far less than these memos.
They are aligning themselves with people who behead our troops and claiming it is because they think we are evil. I have an opinion about who is evil too.
