"It cannot be said often enough that the chief of staff of the United States Army, Gen. George Casey, responded to a massacre of 13 Americans in which the suspect is a Muslim by saying: "Our diversity ... is a strength."

As long as the general has brought it up: Never in recorded history has diversity been anything but a problem. Look at Ireland with its Protestant and Catholic populations, Canada with its French and English populations, Israel with its Jewish and Palestinian populations.

Or consider the warring factions in India, Sri Lanka, China, Iraq, Czechoslovakia (until it happily split up), the Balkans and Chechnya. Also look at the festering hotbeds of tribal warfare -- I mean the beautiful mosaics -- in Third World hellholes like Afghanistan, Rwanda and South Central, L.A.

"Diversity" is a difficulty to be overcome, not an advantage to be sought. True, America does a better job than most at accommodating a diverse population. We also do a better job at curing cancer and containing pollution. But no one goes around mindlessly exclaiming: "Cancer is a strength!" "Pollution is our greatest asset!"

..."liberals celebrate diversity only in the case of superficial characteristics like race, gender, sexual preference and country of origin. They reject diversity when we need it, such as in "diversity" of legal forums.

After conferring with everyone at Zabar's, Obama decided that if a standard civilian trial is good enough for Martha Stewart, then it's good enough for the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks. So Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is coming to New York!

Mohammed's military tribunal was already under way when Obama came into office, stopped the proceedings and, eight months later, announced that Mohammed would be tried in a federal court in New York.

In a liberal's reckoning, diversity is good when we have both Muslim jihadists and patriotic Americans serving in the U.S. military. But diversity is bad when Martha Stewart and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed are subjected to different legal tribunals to adjudicate their transgressions.

Terrorists tried in civilian courts will be entitled to the whole panoply of legal protections accorded Stewart or any American charged with a crime, such as the presumption of innocence, the right to a fair trial, the right to exclude evidence obtained in violation of Miranda rights, the right to a speedy trial, the right to confront one's accusers, the right to a change of venue, the right to examine the evidence against you, and the right to subpoena witnesses and evidence in one's defense.

Members of Congress have it in their power to put an end to this lunacy right now. If they don't, they are as complicit in Mohammed's civilian trial as the president. Article I, Section 8, and Article III, Section 1 of the Constitution give Congress the power to establish the jurisdiction of the lower federal courts and to create exceptions to that jurisdiction.."

To the run-of-the-mill liberal, "E Pluribus Unum" translates to "Let's focus on the one and fuck the many!", as there's simply no other way to explain such a dramatic shift in what the country is all about, why indeed it was created to begin with, and at the end of the day...WHAT FRICKIN WORKS.

I push while you pull never worked out all that swell, but to the basement dwellers that fund and run and squeak kumbaya along with their elected loons in Congress, it's a way to be seen and heard because the alternative is to spend eternity plodding along as the make-believe nobodies they really are.

Now, that was jim-dandy when they were inflicting nothing more than flea bites on the body politic but its getting serious. Treating enemy combatants as dyed-in-the-wool Americans is eyes wide stupid and generally the worst of ideas. It comes from the liberal mindset so that's a given, but the days of placating them so's they don't hang themselves with mommy's clothesline in daddy's cellar is quickly retreating in the rearview mirror and with NORMAL folks they'd be getting the message BEFORE everything fell to shit, but in case you've not been paying attention, they AIN'T normal.

And now even our General's are infected, proving the pathogen to be highly contagious so enough is enough.
