Click Cartoon for Larger Size
Granted, this editorial cartoon lacks subtlety - but does anyone doubt that the President's current stance on terrorism would qualify him for the South African Women's Track Team?
Obama did not strongly denounce the release (to a hero's welcome) of the Lockerbie bomber, nor would he rule out a possible meeting in September with Libya's Gaddafi...who sponsored the bombing which killed 179 Americans, as well as other terrorist acts.
The president then gave a "thumbs up" to Eric Holder's plan to prosecute (or is that persecute?) CIA agents who used intensive interrogation techniques to thwart terrorist attacks on American soil, and cripple Al Qaeda's leadership.
But why stop there? He also took interrogation authority away from the CIA and has placed it under the direct supervision of the Whitehouse, to ensure that the cruelest torture a suspected terrorist will ever face will be sharing a non-alcoholic beer with Joe Biden in the rose garden.
