Beer Monday Linkfest: Props Where Props Due

And a good morning to all! How about a beer?

You know, politics is fun and all, slapping liberals (metaphorically speaking), going wild, but, I try and pride myself on some intellectual honesty. Back during the 2004 elections, I even threw some kudo's to John Kerry for his environmental stances. And, I have to throw some props here, too, in regards to this CNS News story on the jailed Border Agents

Meanwhile, Democrats are gradually speaking out on the matter, led by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas).

Waters and Jackson Lee are both members of the House Judiciary Committee, which Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) said should conduct its own investigation of the matter.

"Because delaying justice in this case undermines the U.S. Border Patrol's critical mission of enforcing our immigration laws, I believe the House Judiciary Committee should investigate all matters involved in the prosecution and sentencing of these two men," Jones wrote in a letter to Friday to the chairman of the committee, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.).

Jones cited a memo from the Department of Homeland Security that said nine agents, including two supervisors, had been at the scene of the shooting and failed to report it. Defense attorney for the two men are seeking a new trial based on the memo.

In the Senate, Feinstein is seeking answers from the Justice Department, the Homeland Security Department and the Bureau of Prisons.

In Feb. 8 letters to the three agencies, she asked why the sentences were so "extreme."

Noting that Sutton has pointed out that sentences are mandated by Congress, Feinstein asked why the prosecution had in that case not sought different charges. She also wanted to know if federal authorities have traveled to foreign countries in the past to offer immunity deals to criminals to testify against law enforcement officers.

Despite any (read pretty much all) political, governmental, and social issues I have with Feinstein, Watters, and Jackson-Lee (and there are some woppers of a difference, which I will not reiterate now), and the fact that I think Jones has turned into a surrender monkey, I give them kudo's for standing up for what is right. And pardoning the agents is what is right. If only President Bush would do the same.

Read the beginning third of the story to see what Rep. Dana Rohrabacker has said now about President Bush's stances, as well as over 100 Republicans signing on to pardon the agents.
