US now land of muddled thinking, home of half-hearted commitments

'Special Report' All-Star panel weighs in


This is rich. Our military is bombing Iraq and Syria and going after terror targets in large parts of Africa. But somebody forgot to lock the front door at the White House, and a disturbed intruder ran inside just after President Obama left.

New York also sabotages itself. The city is providing free lawyers, municipal ID cards and museum passes to illegal immigrants, even as the Police Department disbands a key part of its counter-terrorism program because it offended some Muslims. All the while, officials warn New Yorkers to be vigilant because jihadists already may be in our midst.


Maybe we should look for them in the museums with their ID cards?

Don’t you dare accuse America of consistency, foolish or otherwise. We are the land of muddled thinking and the home of half-hearted commitments.
