Kid gloves not in style

The Spokesman-Review

You gotta be kidding! Say it ain’t so! Your coverage and letters on “torture” interrogations of terrorists really does confirm the fact that the political left, liberals, congressional Democrats and President Obambi have a disconnect with the reality of our country.

So, jihadists intent on slaughtering Western civilians and military personnel deserve a gentler or kinder Q-and-A session to spill the beans, and maybe their buddies back home will like us more because of our “high moral ground”? Get real. This tea and biscuit approach won’t work unless Pelosi or Clinton are serving goodies while attired in miniskirts.

So, our political leaders get tough on American business executives whose careers have been intertwined with a previously glorious economy and standard of living, but wimp out on terrorists whose career goal is to kill us? Better yet, the Democrats now do a Send the Love video to Iran, hug Chavez and Castro, ignore Putin’s and Kim’s (North Korea) transgressions, but are upset that we “mistreated” Osama’s 9/11 mastermind?

Makes you wonder how in the world the current leftist socialists would have handled Stalin, Hitler and Pearl Harbor. We probably wouldn’t be around to debate (in English) that issue, now would we?
