Sheik, Rattle And Roll

The Washington Post tells how Khalid Sheik Mohammed broke under interrogation and spilled the beans, going so far as to conduct terrorist tutorials for CIA intelligence officers, describing Al Qaeda methods, personnel and plans, the information provided keeping the United States safe from terrorist attack since September 11, 2001. This sort of thing is unacceptable to the American Left, as represented by the elected leadership of the Democratic party, who are preparing a witch hunt and show trials for the CIA officers who dared to do their duty, screaming all the while of torture and desecration of the good name of the United States. Waterboarding is not torture; pulling out fingernails with pliers is torture. Sleep deprivation is not torture. Tying someone to the rack and pulling him apart is torture. Drilling into teeth is torture. Sawing off someone’s head, as was done to Daniel Pearl by the good Khalid Sheik Mohammed, is torture. What the radical Left is doing to our country is torture, and the question is, will we recover?       



The shaken head, the small moué

The frown that says don’t do it

To waterboard means we are they

And we will live to rue it

So spake the left, those gentle souls

Who shake with firm conviction

That he who with the devil bowls

Is living life as fiction

No matter that the goodly sheikh

Was harmed not by the ‘boarding

The torture road will only make

His words not worth recording

With wroth filled eyes they shake their fists

And scream with indignation

And set about compiling lists

Of those who serve the nation

With boundless rage the lefty crowd

Sets out to hurt the good guys

They plan to leave no one uncowed

It doesn’t matter who dies
