Hezbollah's Friends-CNN and Huffington's Readers
Powerline says Hezbollah has called in "reinforcements"---CNN. CNN has somehow found Lebanese to usher them around the destruction wrought by Israeli bombing with accompanying utterances against Israel's inhumanity. Fair and balanced, they.
Powerline also says the Dems contribution is to conjure up a story of the administration's failure to remove Americans from Lebanon ala the Hurricane Katrina evacuation hype.
Meanwhile, Dean and Co claim they would have ended this conflict by working night and day and even around the clock. They would have given 110% to end this conflict. Dean said:
"We would have had the moral authority that Bill Clinton had when he brought together the Northern Irish and the IRA, when he brought together the Israelis and the Palestinians."
I've heard enough. Where do I sign up?
Meanwhile read this short editorial by Alan Dershowitz in the Huffington blog. He tries to explain to her readers that there is no moral equivalence between Israel and Hezbollah.
Here is a para (and, boy, did the Huffington readers have a cow after that- check out the link for the reaction of the liberals):
Every single prisoner held by Israel has judicial review available to him or her and some have won release. Every one of them has access to Red Cross visitation, can communicate with family, and has a known whereabout. Kidnapped Israeli soldiers on the other hand are kept incommunicado by criminal elements, are routinely tortured, often murdered, (as occurred recently) and have no access to the Red Cross or judicial review. Moreover, the prisoners being held by Israel are terrorists--that is, unlawful combatants. Many are murderers who have been convicted and sentenced in accordance with due process. The "women" and "children" are guilty of having murdered or attempted to murder innocent babies and other non-combatants. The soldiers who were kidnapped are lawful combatants subject to prisoner of war status.
