ACLJ: Justice Dept. putting national security at risk

by D. Bennett

The American Center for Law and Justice sent an e-mail to subscribers Friday, urging them to oppose the Department of Justice’s plans to try five 9/11 conspirators in civilian courts.

“Rarely does one decision carry as many national security ramifications,” the e-mail states, “as the recent decision by President Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to give the terrorist mastermind of the 9/11 attacks full due process rights and access to our domestic criminal courts.”

The ACLJ’s e-mail urged supporters to sign a petition voicing their opposition to the DOJ’s proposal.

EPPC: Laments of Obama’s interrogation regulations

by M. Pulliam

An article highlighted by the Ethics and Public Policy Center laments how the advances in intelligence gathering since 9/11 have been reversed by the Obama administration.

“…the suspect CIA will no longer question high-value terrorists. Now, a committee of experts from several intelligence and law enforcement agencies – a committee housed at the FBI – will decide whether and how to question the enemy, or should I say “alleged perpetrators.” This group will report directly to the White House.”

Traditional Values Coalition (Andrea Lafferty): On Friday, argued that through his memo to U.S. embassies world-wide (see Lafferty’s link to atlasshrugs2000 posting), President Obama is “continuing his apology tour and is pandering to Islamic nations,” and that Obama “seems  to infer that U.S. citizens should make amends for something that was done to us.”

Focus on the Family: notes that Barney Frank (D-MA) will not agree to co-sponsor the repeal of DOMA (to be introduced tomorrow).  Also, discusses a District Court decision to forbid the disclosure of the names of people who signed a petition to overturn a Washington state domestic partnership law.

Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission/Richard Land Live: argues that President Obama’s “speech did little to allay the concerns of most critics, especially regarding federal funding of abortion.”  Also, on Sept. 9, Richard Land and others handed Congress a petition signed by 1.3 million people opposed to “current health care legislation.”
