Perhaps NOW Would Be a GOOD Time to Revisit THIS...

With all the fast and furious appointments of the early Obama administration, many have been overlooked and thus a lot of mischief is set to be unloosed on the American people without their understanding where any of it is coming from.

Earlier this year, Barack Obama tabbed Harold Koh (the Dean of Yale’s Law School) as his top lawyer - legal adviser for the State Department.

Sounds very much like a reasonable enough choice, right?

But Harold Koh had a bounty of incredible statements in his file that would almost certainly raise the eyebrows of the vast majority of Americans.

Perhaps the most incredible of all is Professor Koh’s stated belief that Muslim Sharia Law is not at all incompatible with the U.S. Constitution!

In a 2007 speech, Harold Koh stated, “In an appropriate case, he didn’t see any reason why sharia law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States.”

An administration that appoints, as it top lawyer, it’s top legal analyst, a man who sees no innate incompatibility between Sharia Law and the U.S. Constitution is not one that is concerned about either the safety of Americans or protecting America’s far-flung global interests.

OMG. I swear this is all like a terrible nightmare. It's impossible to keep up with all that BO's doing because he's cranking out so many awful decisions and diversions that it boggles the mind. I'm really deeply worried for our country.

Yeah, I saw this gem the other day, among my notes and looked it up and.....yup, Harold Koh DID indeed say that he could see Sharia being applied in specific cases here.....of course he didn't say which parts and under what conditions, so, on the bright side, it doesn't appear that he actually endorsed stoning adulterers or chopping the hands and feet off thieves....but just the claim that Sharia Law isn't incompatible with the U.S. Constitution is pretty far out there...

You know, in light of this, Anita Dunn with her two favorite people (Mao and Mother Theresa) doesn't seem all "that weird" all of a sudden!

OK, just kidding....yeah she does!
