Couple of quick things this morning

First, somebody screwed the pooch bigtime, letting this guy in unscreened. And it cost.

Another case of our media failing in their job, foreign media doing that job. And, secondarily, that moron Johnson blowing another gasket.

If you can't stop the wind farm with honest argument, use PC bullcrap. Especially in federal bureaucracies and in the People's Republic of MA, that usually works. Enviroweenie mantra: "Go Green!(except we don't really want you to have any energy so don't really do it)

At the back end of the process, after foreign terrorists have been interrogated, It is a serious mistake and something of a travesty to try them in federal court (Padilla is not a foreigner, though). But it is close to criminal, at the front end, to give foreign terrorists rights enjoyed by ordinary defendants that make it more difficult for us to obtain information from them that might well prevent future attacks and save lives.

In the most telling moment of his interview with Wallace, Brennan was unable to deny that this is what the adminstration has done in this case.

WALLACE: But wait, wait. Let me ask you specifically. After Abdulmutallab got lawyered up, did he stop cooperating with authorities? Did he stop talking?

BRENNAN: I'm not going to address exactly what he did before or after he was -- talked with his lawyer. We got information. We continue to have opportunities to do that.

But it lets the administration play "We are the Ones" again, so they seem to think it's worth it. No matter how many American lives it costs in the long run.

Nearly the entire eastern half of the United States is enduring bitterly cold temperatures not experienced since 1985. Even Florida, which has been hovering around freezing levels overnight recently, is also feeling the almost-nationwide chill.

"It'll be like the great winters of the '60s and '70s," said AccuWeather.com Chief Meteorologist and Expert Long Range Forecaster Joe Bastardi.

The last time a large swath of severely low temperatures struck the nation was in January 1985. That historic arctic outbreak had below-zero temperatures Fahrenheit stretching from Chicago eastward to New York City, and all the way south to Macon, Ga
Global warming my ass. Go to Drudge and look at the top of the page; that whole string of 'record cold, record snow' stories.

And last, I wonder if Holder will treat this guy like earlier Border Patrol people involved in shootings?

Good question.   I wonder what johnny sutton is doing these days?   I mean, you know, if Holder wants to bring in an 'expert' at dealing with issues like this, he could bring Sutton in for the encore!
