    Another friend, Scott?

    First Amendment, due process, rule of law abet terrorism

    I believe we will lose the war on terror. We can win on the battlefields, if we have the will, because we have the best military in the world. We will lose at home because of the insanity of the liberal left.

    Among these homegrown terrorists, who enjoy the fruits of liberty but forget their responsibilities, is the mainstream media, seemingly intent on undermining our security and opposed to making war on our enemies. For example, in clapping her hands over the Supreme Court decision banning military tribunals for captured terrorists, in her July 1 column, Rita Truschel said with respect to the sentencing of Zacarias Moussaoui that, “It proved possible to prosecute a war in court.”

    I won’t waste words on The New York Times, Washington Post, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, etc.

    The liberal education establishment has relegated the teaching of history to the dustbin, so that generations of Americans have little ability to draw comparisons between the current conflict and previous wars. That we have lost 2,500 troops in Iraq is indeed tragic, but Americans, aided and abetted by liberal media, fail to compare this with the 50,000-plus losses in both Korea and Vietnam, and more than 400,000 in World War II.

    Liberal judges are more interested in applying foreign law to the war on terror than they are in the constitutional war powers of the president. Contrary to liberal belief, our Constitution is not a suicide pact.

    And then there are the cut-and-run liberal Democrats in Washington, plus a few too many Republicans.

    If our loss to terrorism is proceeding too slowly, we can hasten this American tragedy by electing a liberal Democrat as president in 2008. He or she will eviscerate our intelligence services and castrate our military, while kissing up to the media, appointing more liberal judges and further destroying our educational system.

    James A. Venema, Hockessin

    Yes, I am a terrorist. And don’t tell anyone– my wife is from the Middle East and speaks Arabic. And I have worked with explosives (including military stuff). And all of those Google searches for ANFO— purely academic research.

    My favorite bit was the title the editorial page editor put on the letter. Just a wee bit snarky, eh?

    I just realized that I think I may know his wife. Mrs. Venema was our oldest’s 1st grade teacher at Wilmington Christian School in Hockessin. It’s got to be the same family.
