Long Story & By The Numbers - Conservative Cartoon Double Header

Long Story

When asked about the American deaths in Benghazi and the Administration's ongoing refusal to give answers, Whitehouse Spokesweasel Jay Carney brushed off the question as unimportant because "Benghazi happened a long time ago." Which might be true if you're the brain-damaged star of the film "Memento," but for the rest of the thinking world, remembering all the way back to a successful terror attack just last September 11th isn't really that hard. 

Of course, maybe Carney's memory could be jogged if the Whitehouse would allow the Benghazi witnesses and whistleblowers to come forward and testify to Congress without fear of losing their jobs...or worse.

And speaking of people with memory impairment, it's worth mentioning that at Barack Hussein Obama's press conference this week, he asserted that putting prisoners in Guantanamo Bay had been an "emotional reaction" to those goshdarn 9/11 attacks but it needs to be closed because, "we are now over a decade out. We should be wiser."

Sure, Barry. Ten years is a long time ago, right? Even though they're still finding pieces of aircraft wreckage in New York, near the desired site of the (presidentially praised) Ground Zero Mosque.

By the Numbers

And speaking of bloodthirsty, radical Islamics who would probably love us if we just gave them more hugs and government cash and put Sandra Fluke in a burkha, it seems that 30 of the FBI's 31 Most Wanted Terrorists are (surprise!) Muslims (and yes, the remaining terrorist is an environmental nut).

Which makes it odd to the point of frigging stupidity that profiling is not being used to help identify terrorists before they kill in places like, oh, just picking a city at random here, EFFING BOSTON.

Stranger still, considering these statistics, why is Homeland Security still railing about the dangers of potential terrorism from flag-waving, Constitution-loving, fiscal responsibility-type citizens...while simultaneously removing materials about radical Islamics from their counterterror training programs?

It used to be that being a terrorist did not invite government sympathy and support, and being a patriot didn't invite government enmity. 

But, as Jay Carney would say, that was a long time ago.
