Hats off G-Men

Thank God for the men and women in the FBI.

The G-Men struck a big blow for freedom by capturing the Fort Dix terrorists. These jihadists wanted to kill as many American soldiers as possible. Their arrest and capture is a pivotal homeland security event.

Shame on CNN for editorializing in their news report that these jihadists were not hardcore terrorists. That’s insane. As terrorism expert Steve Emerson said on last night’s show, it is unfortunately indicative of an attitude at CNN that sometimes minimizes the threat of radical Islam.

And shame on the Democrats (and handful of Republicans) hamstringing law enforcement’s ability to move swiftly through electronic surveillance. In other words wiretapping, eavesdropping, cell-phone tapping, Internet tapping, etc. These are the essential tools.

We may not be able to stop all the terrorists from getting into the US, but once they’re here, we sure can monitor them electronically. Why on earth they try to tie the good guys hands behind their backs in digging up these jihadists is beyond me.

Make no mistake here: the capture of these terrorists is further proof of why we must give our Homeland Security authorities all the necessary tools to break these evil murderous plots up. We need to give them all the ammunition they need.

At any rate, this is a big win for the FBI. It’s a big win for homeland security. And it's a big win for this great country and freedom.
