So now a federal bureaurat, from the Defense Dept no less, is arguing, in public, that “citizens” of capital of the world’s enemy, have “rights” to use the very tool that continues to make genocide and terrorism possible. This is liberalism unleashed. Remember the revelation that Obama was having the military drop leaflets near Raqqa warning the drivers of oil truck that we were about to strike them?

A U.S. defense official said that “citizens” in the ISIS capital of Raqqa, Syria have a “right” to use the Internet despite terrorists in the city using the web for command, control, and recruitment activities.

Thomas Atkin, acting assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense and global security, told a House committee Wednesday that cutting off the Internet would have a negative impact because of the militant group’s reliance on civilian infrastructure, Breaking Defense reported.

“Certainly going after specific nodes to hamper and stop the use of the Internet by ISIS is important, but we also have to respect the privileges and rights of citizens to have access to the Internet as a whole and as a country,” Atkin testified before the House Armed Services Committee.

“It’s a careful balance, even in Raqqa … on how we balance the needs, or the rights, to have access to the Internet versus the use of the Internet illegally by folks like ISIL,” he added, using a different acronym for ISIS.

Atkin was responding to questions about why militants were still online in Raqqa, where ISIS often directs attacks against Americans.

    Question for Mr. Atkin; Do you disavow W.T. Sherman’s tactics and state that there should not be a Union today, but a North United States and a South Confederate States?

    My solution to Raqqa?…Send waves of B-52’s and B-1’s and completely flatten the city.
    Wait three days and do it again from the other direction. It’s called ‘Back to the Stone Age’
