The Dutch Boy Ran Out of Fingers…Part II

Posted by Mark on September 26, 2006

That door the MSM opened, and the Democrats blithely walked through, has once again led right off a cliff. The declassified parts of the NIE show the massive scandal which we used to know as “objective journalism.” Here’s the opening sentences:

United States-led counterterrorism efforts have seriously damaged the leadership of
al-Qa’ida and disrupted its operations;

Oopsie.
So, let’s see what the much vaunted Iraq paragraph really said:

We assess that the Iraq jihad is shaping a new generation of terrorist leaders and
operatives; perceived jihadist success there would inspire more fighters to continue the
struggle elsewhere.
• The Iraq conflict has become the “cause celebre” for jihadists, breeding a deep
resentment of US involvement in the Muslim world and cultivating supporters for
the global jihadist movement. Should jihadists leaving Iraq perceive themselves,
and be perceived, to have failed, we judge fewer fighters will be inspired to carry
on the fight.

Percieved success. Percieved failure.

Question: Who drives perceptions today? Would it not be the very MSM and Defeatocrats who now have egg on their face…again?

The Dutch Boy Ran Out Of Fingers…

Or The Dike is about to explode.

Or How Best Win an Election and Loose the War on Terror.

Our Intel is leaking like a sieve. It seems our government, from the highest Democrat on down, doesn’t seem to understand what the word “classified” means. I tire of the constant “leaks” that don’t get prosecuted. The “leaks” that occur purely for political gain, and this is just another in a long line.


Bush to Declassify Part of Intel Report

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush on Tuesday said it is naive and a mistake to think that the war with Iraq has worsened terrorism, as a key portion of a national intelligence assessment by his own administration suggests. He said he was declassifying part of the report.

Democrats have used the report – written by analysts from a range of U.S. intelligence branches – to bolster their criticism of Bush’s Iraq policy.

The administration does not dispute the findings, but claims only part of the report was leaked – and does not tell the full story.

As usual, the moonbattiest of the moonbatties don’t want us to know the whole story. “Can’t control the populace if they have the whole story, nope gotta leak the best parts.” The parts that will do the most damage both to America, and the Republican Party. Remember, National Security is secondary to our regaining power.

There is never an excuse for leaking classified information. Only a few people in the U.S. have the power to declassify, and I almost guarantee the “leaker” in this case does not. If a simple schmuck like me did anything like this, I would be doing the rest of my life in a hard labor camp, if I was lucky. “Leaking” classified information is punishable by DEATH, unless apparently you are a high ranking former political official. Sandy Berger anyone?

The Oslo Discord

Posted by Mark on September 26, 2006

Over in Norway….Muslim sociopaths are plotting and planning. HUH? (Did Quisling’s grandson throw a snowball at a Koran?)

The terrorists who shot at an Oslo synagogue on Sunday also planned to kidnap Israeli ambassador to Norway Miryam Shomrat and cut off her head, Norwegian press reported on Friday.

According to Army Radio, Norwegian security services had been tracking the four suspects who, when apprehended, were found in possession of equipment necessary to implement their plan. Two of the suspects were reported to be Pakistani nationals, one was Turkish, and the fourth Norwegian.

Sunday’s shooting came less than a week after an Al Qaida plot targeting the site was uncovered.

Hmmm….Norway?…Isn’t that the site of Billy Bob Clinton DESPERATELY trying to get Uber-thug Yasser Arafat to sign a ‘Declaration of Principles’? Uh…yah…that would be the one. I can hear the moonbat liberals now….

“It’s our fault….it’s our failed US policies in the Middle East.”
