Devastating The Left On Iraq

Published by at 8:24 pm under All General Discussions,Iraq,Plame Game

Folks, let’s recall that Iraq is now a democratic ally of the US and Saddam is on trial for his brutal crimes against humanity. The Joe Wilson’s and rogue CIA know-it-alls who said we would never see a democratic Iraq are now proven fools.

And let’s also recall that Saddam was not trustworthy, was obsessed with WMDs and protected terrorits on the run for their crimes. So when the press admits the Plame Game is all about the lead up to war, let’s also remind them of their role in that too.

“Iraq Has Network of Outside Help on Arms, Experts Say”(November 1998), “U.S. Says Iraq Aided Production of Chemical Weapons in Sudan”(August 1998), “Iraq Suspected of Secret Germ War Effort” (February 2000), “Signs of Iraqi Arms Buildup Bedevil U.S. Administration” (February 2000), “Flight Tests Show Iraq Has Resumed a Missile Program” (July 2000).

That was a sampling of the NY Times stories about how manageable Saddam Hussein was prior to 9-11. Why their faith in him grew afterwards is a mystery – maybe they had oil contracts. Or maybe Bush Derangement Syndrome is a real mental disorder.

And from the Washington Post there was this gem:

(A somewhat shorter list can be compiled from The Post’s archives, including a September 1998 headline: “Iraqi Work Toward A-Bomb Reported.”)

This is the work of one Robert Kagan, writing on page A21 in today’s Washington Post. The man has done more to derail the leftwing lies than anyone I have seen in a long time. And just like with the Iraq war, we will find the leftwing fanatics in the Post and Times were as clueless about the Fitzgerald investigation. Because you see, to indict means the Bush administration was covering up leaks – without little doubt it could be anyone else. That is how one determines their is a reason to indict – there is little chance it ‘the crime’ was done by anyone else.

Except in this case we the ones who knew about Plame were the press, who now use their papers to leak details from their lawyers and spin the investigation away from their culpability.

Strange, if I were Fitzgerald this would strengthen both my hand and my resolve against the administration’s foes. Because, face it, they are not interested in ‘the record’ or ‘the truth’….

Philip Shenon reported official concerns that Iraq would be “capable within months — and possibly just weeks or days — of threatening its neighbors with an arsenal of chemical, biological and even nuclear weapons.” He reported that Iraq was thought to be “still hiding tons of nerve gas” and was “seeking to obtain uranium from a rogue nation or terrorist groups to complete as many as four nuclear warheads.”

The media hypes everything. Including their own intelligence and motives. If you own shares of NY Times – I suggest you think about dumping them soon. Their only value was in the reputation of the paper to tell the truth – not print their preferred version of it.

Read the whole article – it is amazing.

    I think someone is having fun pulling ABC’s leg.

    This from Drudge:

    Tue Oct 25 2005 19:08:02 ET

    “We have double sourced that the vice president’s chief of staff has been indicted,” a reporter for ABCNEWS claimed to a White House press spokesman this afternoon.

    The White House refused to comment on the claim. The network said they didn’t need comment, they were preparing to run with the development on this evening’s network news broadcast, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

    ABCNEWS claimed to the White House that it had double sourced how an indictment against vice presidential chief of staff I. Lewis Libby was set.

    A senior White House source quickly determined ABC was bluffing; the report did not run on the East coast feed of the program.

    ABC NEWS spokesman Jeff Schneider tells the DRUDGE REPORT: “There is nothing at all true about us having double sourced anything” regarding indictments.

    Reuters & the Palestinian Hotel; Selective Memory and Outrage

    The attack on the Palestinian Hotel has created a media backlash against violence directed against journalists, but not against al Qaeda in particular. Media giant Reuters weighs in on yesterday’s multiple suicide assault. While Suicide bombings have been the calling card of al Qaeda in Iraq and its Islamist affiliates and allies, incredulously, Reuters feigns ignorance of the origin of the attackers; “Until now, the perpetrators remain unknown.” Reuters does not even hazard an educated guess.

    Reuters now is claiming that the government’s agents are asking the neighbors if they knew Plame was CIA. I kind of think this is really theater.

    The writer thinks this means they are going to charge administration officials for the leak. But if they are asking the neighbors, it seems to me like maybe they are going to charge the Wilsons for the leak.


    Oct 25, 2005 — By Adam Entous

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – With charges expected as early as Wednesday, federal officials investigating the exposure of CIA operative Valerie Plame conducted last-minute interviews with her neighbors and associates of Karl Rove and other top White House aides, lawyers said on Tuesday.

    Marc Lefkowitz, who lives across the street from Plame, told Reuters two FBI agents asked him on Monday if he knew about Plame’s CIA work before her identity was leaked to the press in 2003. Lefkowitz said he told them: “I didn’t know.”
    Two lawyers involved in the case said such questioning could indicated that prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald intended to charge administration officials for the leak itself, in addition to possible charges for easier-to-prove crimes like perjury and obstruction of justice. …

    This is a 2003 left leaning article against the neo-cons however, I found the following interesting:

    “The agency guys were so pissed at Cheney,” the former officer said. “They said, ‘O.K, we’re going to put the bite on these guys.’ ” My source said that he was first told of the fabrication late last year, at one of the many holiday gatherings in the Washington area of past and present C.I.A. officials. “Everyone was bragging about it—‘Here’s what we did. It was cool, cool, cool.’ ” These retirees, he said, had superb contacts among current officers in the agency and were informed in detail of the sismi intelligence……

    Aargh. I cannot read the MSM anymore. The headlines regarding The CIA Leak are nauseating. No facts, just the WH is guilty of something. All speculation; it is disgusting. I will wait for the inevitable result and the disintegration of the Left.

    I have been through it and there is only the 40 or so pages near the front that deal with the Wilson affair.
