Colonel Alan West at CPAC

Colonel Alan West at CPAC.

This guy brings tears to my eyes.

Imagine if we had even a dozen Alan Wests in the US Congress.

Ann Coulter was funny, Newt Gingrich gave a great speech and surprised me with some of the lines in the sand he suggested. LT Col Allen West made me want to move so I could vote for him but Glenn Beck knocked the ball out of the ballpark with his speech. I have watched it twice. It was funny to read some of the tweets during the speech... some said it sounds like a history lesson... I tweeted back, he is doing his show, you should watch sometime.

Thank you for posting this. He is a strong supporter of ACT! for America and what we are trying to do.
If we love our military and country, we must send letters to our two senators and congresspersons, demanding both the Senate & House Armed Services Committees hold hearings on Stephen Coughlin’s thesis, “To Our Great Detriment” Ignoring What Extremists Say About Jihad and why DoD silenced him. The military has never completed the proper steps to identify our enemy.
It will be difficult to get Sen. Levin (D-MI) chairman of the Senate committee to hold hearings when the Muslims in Dearborn oppose it.
Here is the challenge, political correctness in Washington, DC. especially in DoD, is keeping us from identifying and fighting our real enemy. The DoD has been infiltrated by those preventing our military to identify the real enemy.
We can read diatribes about the so-called "Moderate Muslim Brotherhood" in Foreign Affairs, but when the Brotherhood speaks on its own we can only hear the extremist rhetoric about instituting shari'a and excluding non-Muslims and women from high office.
“To Our Great Detriment”
Ignoring What Extremists Say About Jihad

In comments made at the National Defense University on 1 December 2005, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Peter Pace explained to his audience the importance of “understand[ing] the nature of the enemy” if we hope to defeat jihadi extremists. Comparing our situation today, with that faced by an earlier generation who had to deal with the reality of the Nazi threat, General Pace suggested a simple solution to complying with his injunction: “read what our enemies have said. Remember Hitler…. He said in writing exactly what his plan was that we collectively ignored to our great detriment (emphasis added).” Just as we ignored Hitler’s articulation of his strategic doctrine in Mein Kampf, so too are we on the verge of suffering a similar fate today, if we fail to seriously assess the extremist threat based on jihadi strategic doctrine.
