Something Even More Nefarious?

There's plenty to crticize about President Obama's policies on missile defense, but Frank Gaffney makes the preposterous claim that the new logo for the Missile Defense Agency "appears ominously to reflect a morphing of the Islamic crescent and star with the Obama campaign logo," he goes on:

we have another possible explanation for behavior that — in the face of rapidly growing threats posed by North Korean, Iranian, Russian, Chinese and others’ ballistic missiles — can only be described as treacherous and malfeasant:  Team Obama’s anti-anti-missile initiatives are not simply acts of unilateral disarmament of the sort to be expected from an Alinsky acolyte.  They seem to fit an increasingly obvious and worrying pattern of official U.S. submission to Islam and the theo-political-legal program the latter’s authorities call Shariah.

Conservatives need real analysis and argument regarding what Obama is doing wrong on national security (to which Gaffney can contribute)--not silliness that will rightly be mocked.
