1st Lieutenant Joshua Waddell (USMC) was given an unsatisfactory fitness report because he followed orders and went after a known terrorist. The military feels that civilians could have been harmed in the operation to capture this terrorist and therefore Lt. Waddell should not have pursued the man, yet this man planted IEDs throughout Afghanistan with no regard for civilian life. Sara Carter explains how the Rules of Engagement are increasingly being set by our enemies instead of our military leadership. Congress is now working on the Waddell Bill which would establish a three person review board, in country, to review these cases before they end up in a soldiers file and thereby ruining careers. Since when is it wrong to go after terrorists?

Robert Muise is helping to sue the NYC MTA over violation of first amendment rights because he feels the MTA made gave this ad a public forum and therefore must also provide a public forum for an opposing advertisement. Is this another form of the stealth jihad?

What has Chris Van Hollen done in support of Iran?
