NYT: Female US Interrogators Are Dirty Smelly Pirate Whores

Further evidence of unseriousness: the New York Times increasingly-loopy editorial page makes the case that female interrogators seductively touching Muslim terrorists (in an effort to break them down) are essentially prostitutes. And of course it degrades them to be forced, or whatever, to act in such a way.

This is just further evidence that when liberals whine that our boys are dying they really don't care about our boys dying. They care about our enemies dying, about us inflicting our military might upon another country, but they know that's a political loser so they cast everything in terms of "our boys."

I don't think the New York Times is really all that bothered by paid, trained, voluntarily-enlisted female interrogators doing stuff in the service of our national security that Heather and Autumn down at Vixxxens do for $20 an hour plus tips. I think they're offended primarily that we're "humiliating" terrorists by these methods, but they know it's impolitic to admit their true concerns, so now they're shedding tears about "our girls."

In case the New York Times wasn't aware of it -- female spies have had to do a lot of things in the interests of collecting intelligence and making our country safer, some of it sexual and abhorrent to them on a personal level. Yes, honey-traps are usually baited with paid hookers and call-girls, but actual intelligence officers have sometimes had to lower themselves to similar sorts of service.

It's a dirty part of the job but sometimes people are willing to do dirty deeds in the service of patriotism.

Liberals are simply not serious about intelligence, warfare, or national security. They can pretend all they like; they can bloviate about bioweapons detectors in subway tubes and more inspections of cargo containers 'till the cows come home in an effort to show they're "serious" about defending this country.

We don't believe them. And when I say "we," I don't mean just conservatives, I mean the majority of the American voting public. Too frequently they give themselves away, too often they accidentally let the pretense fall a little too far down and let us see their real beliefs.

They're not serious. They are against war even in the most dire of circumstances, and they're against any of the dirtier parts of intelligence-gathering. They cannot come right out and admit they oppose war and covert operations on principle, so they simply object to every conceivable part of warfare or covert ops or interrogation in their details.

Then they can claim they are not reflexively anti-this or anti-that, they're just very outraged by this particular practice.

Trouble is, they're outraged by every particular practice of war or intelligence-gathering.

It's like saying you have nothing against Western omlettes, except you despise eggs, loath ham, destest green peopers, and find onions gob-smackingly vile.

And also-- you're not too crazy about the toast and orange juice they give you on the side. And that you frankly find toast and orange juice "unAmerican" and "contrary to the spirit of our living Constitution."

Let's stop talking of eggs and ham and such and just admit you're anti-omlette.

And let's stop fucking about with these transparent pretenses and just have you admit, finally, you're against war or America doing anything meeeaaan to defend herself. You're not bothered by the particulars; you object to the very fundamentals. You are not outraged by specific practices; you're against all practices on principle.

But liberals know they can't admit their real beliefs. And hence this fifty-year-old Kabuki.
