Hang Anti-War Congressmen? Not Yet

Townhall columnist Frank Gaffney, Jr., wants you to know that he's not as much of a reactionary nutjob as you might think. Even though Abe Lincoln said during the Civil War that congressmen who take actions damaging morale and undermining the military "are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged,” Gaffney says he's not quite there yet.

As Congress debates the Iraq war resolutions, Gaffney writes:
... it is time to reflect on what constitutes inappropriate behavior in time of war.

Scarcely anyone seems to consider the conduct of the Congress at the moment inappropriate, to say nothing of a hanging offense.
At least not "at the moment."

Now there's a compassionate conservative for ya.

Gaffney also wants us to know there was "a wealth of evidence ... that indicated a relationship existed between Iraqi agents and al Qaeda operatives, spanning more than a decade." Gaffney adds: "Doug Feith is an old friend of mine." Surprise, surprise.
