Taliban to be part of Afghan Government

Posted: 26th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

This is a few days old, and I haven’t commented on it yet because honestly I thought it was some sort of satire (or possibly incorrect reporting).  I first heard of it at Gateway Pundit and it was first reported by the New York Times. The first sentence of the report says it all – [...]

Christmas-day bomber interrogated for 50 minutes

Posted: 25th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

I’ve discussed before why non-Americans who are trying to kill Americans should not be given the same rights as Americans.  You can read that at The Right of a Nation – Everything Shouldn’t be Fair. According to The Washington Examiner, the would-be Christmas Day bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was interrogated for only 50 minutes before [...]

Obama has “strengthened America”

Posted: 12th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

A few days ago I noted Obama’s suggestion that America has brought terrorism (such as the Christmas day bombing attempt) on itself with its actions, specifically the Guantanamo Bay prison camp.  You can read that here – The Right of a Nation 1-6-2010. Now, according to Breitbart, this has come up again in Ben Rhodes [...]

AP – Judge tosses evidence on former Gitmo detainee

Posted: 11th January 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

The Associated Press is reporting that a judge has tossed out most of the evidence that the US had against a terrorism detainee that has been held in Guantanamo Bay.  The judge has declared that many of the statements made by Musa’ab Omar Al Madhwani were made while he was being held in “harsh treatment” [...]

Obama blames America first, as usual. According to the BBC, Obama reaffirms his stance on closing Guantanamo Bay.  In addition, he said “In fact, that was an explicit rationale for the formation of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.” This would include Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who trained in Yemen and less than two weeks ago tried [...]

Obama’s Strategy of Being Likeable isn’t Working

Posted: 30th December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

According to Politico, Dick Cheney is again striking out at Obama for his weakness on national security.  I’ve said before that I don’t know if I necessarily agree with former Presidents (or VP’s too I guess) commenting on a current President, but I will admit that Cheney is right. Basically Cheney is railing against the [...]

Homeland Security should be cheap!

Posted: 28th December 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in National Security / Foreign Affairs

Because according to Janet Napolitano, it consists of hoping that citizens (not even necessarily American ones!) decide to be heroes and stop acts of terrorism! I was sitting in the doctor’s office with my wife and saw these classic comments from Napolitano on CNN: “What we are focused on is making sure that the air [...]

Salman Pak – terrorism from Iraq?

This is another old piece of information I want to put on here just to have for posterity’s sake. According to www.globalsecurity.org, “Iraq told UN inspectors that Salman Pak was an anti-terror training camp for Iraqi special forces. However, two defectors from Iraqi intelligence stated that they had worked for several years at the secret [...]

Iraq and WMD’s

Posted: 30th November 2009 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in Iraq

Here is some old information: Many opponents of the current war in Iraq use the claim that Iraq never had WMDs as proof that one of our main reasons for going to war was based on faulty information. They base their claims on the fact that we have found no stockpiles of WMDs in Iraq [...]
