Andrew C. McCarthy: Kill or Capture? – National Review Online


A few years ago, I got into an argument with an expert on military operations. I had written a white paper proposing the creation of a national-security court for terrorism cases. In the paper I criticized the trend to “judicialize” warfare, arguing that, in our system, judgments about the detention and treatment of alien enemy […]

Ralph Peters: Miranda wrongs – NYPOST.com


In a breathtakingly cynical example of playing politics, the White House just accused Republicans of playing politics over its Miranda-rights Christmas gift to the crotch bomber.With fumbling terrorism czar John Brennan walking point, administration spokesmen attacked those who believe that treating would-be suicide-bomber Umar Abdulmutallab the way we handle shoplifters harms our national security.The White […]

Don’t Run, Sarah! Newsweek Assesses Palin’s Electoral Prospects (Again)


Two parts predictable, one part probable: Newsweek’s Daniel Stone takes a look at Sarah Palin’s Tea Party Nation convention speech and determines her unable to win a national election.  Shock!

Andrew C. McCarthy: The Attorney and the General – National Review Online

He shows that these decisions have been premised on left-wing political […]

Andrew C. McCarthy: Rigging the Numbers on Terror – National Review Online


It is welcome news that the Obama administration has reversed its irrational decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other 9/11 plotters in Manhattan’s federal court. So far, however, the administration has merely — and grudgingly — begun to climb out of this hole of its own making.The president seems more poised to move […]

Obama’s Destructive Course

A disappointing speech from a disappointing president.

State of the Union: “Woe to the People Whose Leader Has No Teacher”


Historically, State of the Union speeches leave no trace. Their impact on presidential approval ratings is nil. Their utility, therefore, is in what they reflect about the presidential character and the presidential course. Last night President Obama gave a speech that was at times quite eloquent, and on occasion rhetorically empty. But at all times […]

State of the Union Address: Lost Opportunity to Support Iranian People


President Obama understandably focused the vast majority of the State of the Union on domestic issues. As a national security specialist, though, I listened and waited to hear about the threats facing us as they are what I am best educated in. To my disappointment, President Obama again referred to the [...]
