BOMBINGS IN JORDAN PUNCTUATE SPREADING GLOBAL TERRORISM

Suicide bombers detonated explosives at three international hotels in Amman, Jordan's capital city. So far the death toll stands at about 53 people and with scores of wounded. Unfortunately, the causality figures may be amended as events unfold.

According to witnesses, there have been explosions at the Radisson, the Grand Hyatt, and a Day's Inn motor hotel. All three are located in Amman. Two of the blasts were caused by suicide bombers with explosives strapped to their bodies. The third was perpetrated by a bomber in a vehicle containing explosives. Police believed earlier that the Radisson blast had been caused by a bomb placed in a false ceiling.

At 9 PM Jordanian time, the Jordanian people were shocked by the simultaneous bomb blasts. The fact that these were coordinated attacks at three separate locations would appear to indicate Al-Qaeda or a Wahhabi group allied with Al-Qaeda. But no group or groups have claimed responsibility as yet.

Jordan's King Abdullah, a staunch ally of the United States, blamed a "deviant and misled group" for the attacks in his released statement. "The attacks targeted and killed innocent Jordanian civilians," he said.

There are reports that Westerners and Israelis were checked into the Radisson hotel, but figures on those casualties are still unknown.

While this horror takes place in Jordan, rioting in France enters its second week, and Somali terrorists attack US cruise ships, there are politicians in the United States who are more concerned over where we are treating captured terrorists and where these secret facilities are located. There are politicians who are more concerned over interrogation tactics which our soldiers, intelligence officer and law enforcement officials employ to get terrorist thugs to talk and hopefully provide information that will save American lives and others around the world.

While terrorist bombers continue to inflict death and suffering upon innocent people, our political leaders in Washington, DC are carping about some CIA bureaucrat having her name leaked to the media, even though witness after witness after witness including a decorated US Army General tell us that it was the "victim's" husband who told them his wife worked for the CIA. There are political leaders who are calling for commission after commission after commission in the hopes they can hurt other political leaders, while ignoring those things that would actually make Americans safer.

While bodies lay in city streets throughout the world, we have political leaders who seek to score brownie points as they pontificate about national security while behind the scenes they work to undermine our military, our intelligence operatives, and our police. They do this with the help of news organizations who enjoy an aura of non-partisanship when in actuality they shovel liberal, anti-war talking points on Americans on a daily basis. The problem is too many Americans still believe these terrorist enablers in the news media.

While the terrorists plot and plan attacks, gather weapons and build explosive devices, our leaders in Washington, DC are busy trying to discredit the Commander-in-Chief with anything they can find. If he doesn't act as they believe he should, they attack. If he takes action, they attack And they attack anyone who attempts to protect the American people, whether they be police chiefs, mayors or governors.

In New York, for instance, the left-wingers dispatched the ACLU to stop police officers from performing anti-terror measures such as random bag checks. Our political leaders and their minions in the media, in left-wing organizations and in groups representing ambulance-chasing lawyers comb the nation seeking examples of that horror of horrors -- racial profiling. Our Supreme Court and the liberals are attempting to give due process rights citizens enjoy in the United States to terrorists and enemy combatants.

And polls show these political leaders are gaining the support of a majority of Americans. We've had our wake up calls. It may be Americans aren't asleep, they're just comatose.
