ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is sitting in prison for letting out secrets that damaged our nation’s safety. National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden is living in self-imposed exile in Russia for letting out secrets that damaged our nation’s security. Yet Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, is a hero to the liberal news media for letting out secrets that could damage our nation’s security and cause harm to Americans here and abroad.

Why are there different standards of punishment at play? Ms. Feinstein should be held accountable for any Americans who are murdered thanks to her information “sharing.” Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were electrocuted in 1952 for spying for our enemies. What has changed today? Liberals say that we are to be held to higher standards by allowing prisoners of war to an easy walk rather than use force during interrogations. How would any one of these liberals feel if they were bound hand and foot just before they were decapitated? I believe they would want our government to use any and all means to find those who murdered them. They just don’t feel that way when it is others’ families, apparently.

America will never win another war until liberals are removed from our government and universities. The policy set by liberals has put our soldiers’ lives after the lives of terrorists by allowing our troops to return fire only when fired upon, and not even then when civilians are used as shields. This is why many of our troops are now targets rather than hunters.

In order to beat our enemies, we have to show more brutality than they use. That is what has allowed America to win wars. Today’s standards set by liberals will only cause us to lose this war and any other wars we wage.
