Mukasey: A Record of Fighting Terror

By Hugh Hewitt

With the announcement of a new nominee for Attorney General, retired federal judge Michael B. Mukasey, President Bush confirms again that the central mission of his administration is the successful prosecution of the war on the Islamist jihadis and the defense of the homeland.

Judge Mukasey is a brilliant and very accomplished judge with deep experience in overseeing the trials of several terrorists including the notorious "Blind Sheikh" Omar Abdel-Rahman. Mukasey was a leader in fighting terrorism long before 9/11 and has seen first hand how our enemies think and plot--and he will bring to the Department of Justice a clear-eyed understanding of the need for superb intelligence and constant vigilance.

There should be no posturing from Democrats about this incredibly qualified nominee and his hearing should be swiftly scheduled held and concluded with the vote occurring in October so that the Department of Justice gets the leadership it needs to continue America's fight against the Islamist menace.
