It better be good and put F'n on the defensive, because the MSM is gonna unleash hell on Bush this week to try and save their candidate.

Don't get too excited. I think it must be the Times, not the Post.

Joel Mowbray, on the front page of the Washington Post? I think not.

No story, however damaging, will deter the Kerry supporters from voting against George Bush. It's wishful thinking.

Well, at least we now know that it's actually true. Sometimes the story about the story turns out to be false.

The fact that Drudge doesn't even know the content tells me that it's big.

I just don't want to be disappointed. I don't want to hear that it involves Kerry buying weed from the VC. That would probably energize his base!

Is this the one about him actively supporting the BC position in Paris?

Apparently the MSM has decreed any unrepented anti-American activites more than 30 years ago don't count.

The MSM has already unleashed their campaign with the bogus Abu Graib diary. This thing with the Times had best be something good, hard hitting, and above all a legitimate and fair issue about Kerry. The Abu Graib crap is old news, few poeple care, and is a phantom issue.

Suposed to hurt Kerry, instead of him being a flip flopper, its supposed to paint him as an outright liar.

"anyone know anything about Mowbray..."

Joel Mowbray usually breaks stories about the State Dept, like the "visa express" scandal.

There is a pathetic story "developing" about the Abu Graib diary...the WaPo will try to bhurt Bush. This might be as prevention of the one that may come in the WaTimes.

From your link:

I'd been debating about revealing this tip, but it seemed necessary to report, so you all know that I am aware of this pending story and will be sure to bring it to you as it is brought to light

So you have nothing to report, but you wanted to tell us that.

I googled him,,he is a conservative, town hall columnist. He wrote Dangerous Diplomacy about the state dept endangering America. He is one of us.

Afraid the missing explosive story with us covering it up will top anything Mowbray has to say. Kerry will say "I would do it better",,

The Times didn't just re-hash the Seymour Hersh garbage on Abu Gharaib, they also ran a story on the disappearance of explosives in Iraq during the early days of the occupation.

No, that's the basic NYTimes story which was spoon fed by Josh Marshall to the reporter.

I have read rumors that it has to do with wmd. But, I don't know for a fact.

I think someone should run with the KLA story, too. IMHO

This info was released weeks ago. The story is probably something relating to Kerry's military record or anti-war activities.

Mowbray has a book out about the state dept. I can't remember the exact title, but it about the threat that the State Dept poses to the country. RedState.Org has sent an email out about the coming story that they have been predicting and the site is overwhelmed.

Not what it's about. All I know is that it has to do with foreign policy and Kerry lies. I am not as hopeful that it will be as big as the hype.

More on the John Kerry Story By: krempasky · Section: Breaking News

I'm pleased to introduce Red State readers to our newest and most welcome contributor, Joel Mowbray. Joel is the author of the Washington Times piece we referred to on Saturday - which will run page 1, above-the-fold tomorrow.. Joel is a long-time columnist, investigative journalist, and author of Dangerous Diplomacy: How The State Department Threatens American Security . He's a dogged reporter -- see, for example, his epic series of confrontations with the State Department's Richard Boucher, one of which led to his being "detained" -- and he's the first person that Red State approached once it became clear that there might be a story here.
He'll be blogging here at Red State to cover developments in the story and respond to any critiques and comments raised. We're lucky to have him, and happy to be able to provide a place for him to cover the story in a way that doesn't depend on print deadlines or studio time.

I know the KLA story seems huge to me, but if we can't get mainstream media to cover it, it won't go anywhere. The story has been out in Agence France Presse for several days, but not a word here.

Update [2004-10-24 18:19:47 by krempasky]: Mea culpa. I sent an email out a few minutes ago, and while I correctly identified the newspaper as the Washington Times in the subject line, I had a seizure and mixed it up with the WaPo in the body. So - for the record, we're talking about the Washington Times. Sorry for the confusion.

That's what I predicted. The KLA story is much bigger. The Kerry lied story was hyped because the RedState.Org tipped the reporter and sent out mass emails to bloggers who repeated the hype.
