    Truly "Inappropriate" Behavior
    By Frank Gaffney, Center for Security Policy
    February 12, 2007

    "Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged." — President Abraham Lincoln

    It is, of course, unimaginable that the penalties proposed by one of our most admired presidents for the crime of dividing America in the face of the enemy would be contemplated — let alone applied — today. Still, as the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate engage in interminable debate about resolutions whose effects can only be to "damage morale and undermine the military" while emboldening our enemies, it is time to reflect on what constitutes inappropriate behavior in time of war.

    I don't think there is enough rope in Washington to do what should be done.

    Those war on poverty was a democrat initiative so that's not a valid comparrison.

    Actually as the democrats are so bent on causing the war on terrorism to fail we may have a chance.

    Well, maybe the Republicans should bring that issue up for and up or down vote - show some real spine, maybe? If it’s war - declare it!

    What do you mean penalties for wartime "inappropriate behavior?"

    Are you saying that if a member of congress disagrees with the presidents foreign policy, he should be punished?

    Thats the point of the 3 branch system, to check each branch and not give complete power to any single branch. Thats freedom of speach my friend.

    Abraham lincon was a great president of his time, but this is a new era and you cant go around having slaves and hanging people who bad mouth you. Even the constitution has some outdated parts to it, thats why almost every sinlgle president is amending one thing or another during his term.

    Let "The Party of the Decider" decide! They supposedly know what’s correct for America, the Middle East and every where else - show us all what you’re made of!
