Was Joe Stack a Conservative loon? The MSM wants you to think so.

The news reports about Joe Stack crashing his plane into an Austin TX building are making him out as a conservative loon. They mention his diatribe that he posted on the net before his kamikaze attack but fail to mention his disdain for George W. Bush. They do mention his hate for taxes, the IRS and the Government in general. I wonder why they would do this? Do you think the MSM would like to make him fit a template of a Tea Party type? I think we all know the answer to that question.

I checked ABC, NBC, MSNBC and CNN and all of them quote from Mr. Stack's internet rant and not one of them mention his disdain for George W. Bush. It appears they are trying to make the narrative that Mr. Stack is just another far-right IRS hating loon. They are trying to paint the right in a bad light before the upcoming tsunami in Novemember.

Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar captured!

It is being reported that the Taliban's top commander, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, has been captured by a joint Pakistani-CIA operation in Karachi Pakistan. Apparently the New York Times has been sitting on this story for a couple of days as to not disrupt current operations. Mullah Baradar is one that may have actionable intel on the location of Bin Laden and with the right interrogation this could be big. I hope Obama does not try to insert himself and demand that this terrorist leader have counsel and implore the Pakistanis not to torture him.

Mullah is the second in command of the Taliban and he appoints and fires the Taliban's commanders and governors; presides over its top military council and central ruling Shura in Quetta, the city in southwestern Pakistan where most of the group's senior leaders are based. According to a terrorist subcommander from Helmand province, Mullah Shah Wali Akhund, Baradar also controls the Taliban's finances which is in the range of millions of dollars.

This is the second high value terrorist taken from of the field of battle in the last week and will have far reaching ramifications. I hope the Pakistanis use every method at their disposal to extract info from this robed pig. If Obama and Eric Holder will stay out of the way and let the adults get the info we need, we may just get Bin Laden in short order. I can't wait for the first liberal group to cry out about Baradar's civil rights and demand the Pakistanis appointment him an ACLU attorney.
