Skip to comments.NBC’s David Gregory Slams Blair Over Islamic Terrorism: Didn’t You And Bush Make It Worse?
Posted on 04/28/2014 7:44:59 AM PDT by TexasCajun
NBCs David Gregory pressed Tony Blair over the resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism worldwide, arguing that perhaps the former British prime ministers support for the Iraq War bolstered Islamic terrorism a charge Blair vehemently denied.
Blair appeared on NBCs Meet the Press Sunday to advocate for a stronger Western response to the burgeoning threat of Islamic fundamentalism in places like Syria, Yemen, Iraq and North Africa.
But Gregory pushed back. Isnt the legacy of your leadership, and that of President Bush, in part responsible for the reality today? he asked, noting that many in both the United States and Britain believe interventions in places like Iraq emboldened and inspired Islamic radicals and took resources away from the fight against al-Qaida in Afghanistan.

Seems David got his mind right!
No wonder NBC wanted this man to have a mental evaluation.
Like many on the left he believes in peace through surrender
Gregory is why Meet the Press ratings tanked...
Wow..........what a freakin’ idiot Gregory is. One look at history of Islam and he’d know we have done nothing to make it worse.
Well actually, yeah we have made it worse with our Political Correctness and Religion of Peace rhetoric, so yeah, maybe Gregory has an obtuse point of sorts.
What an idiot. When in history was it worse than 911 (Bill Clinton’s folly)?
David, tell me what Slick Willy Clinton did to eliminate the problem of Islamic terrorism?
Did he take Bin Laden into custody when he had the chance? Did he cover up Flight 800? Did he hide the Oklahoma City bombing connections to the Middle East?
Did he do anything other than get b******s under the desk?
And don’t even get me started on what Sheik Obama has done.
I guess the psychiatric sessions didn’t help
Thankfully, Obama has made our relationship so much better. What a braindead Marxist.
Pray America wakes up
Gregory needs to have his head examined.
Odd. Didn’t Zero say AQ was on the path to defeat? Would Bush and Blair be responsible for that?
All together now: “IT’S BUSH’S FAULT! (AND BLAIR’S!)”
Send Gregory back to the shrink.
Blaming Bush is just another way for Leftists to never have to take responsibility for anything that goes wrong.
Daniel Greenfield has a story about this very subject today:
How Blaming Bush Led to the Ukraine Crisis
“For the Democratic Party, history began and ended with the election of George W. Bush. Nothing had happened before him. Every world crisis began with him and would only come to an end when the Democratic Party finally squeezed one of its own into the White House.
If there was a problem, Bush had caused it. If another country hated America, it was Bushs fault. Bush alienated Europe, Russia, Asia, the Middle East and even parts of Antarctica.
It was all his fault, the media, academia and angry Trotskyite grandmothers marching for peace and tyranny in San Francisco agreed. Books were written and movies were made. Cartoons were scrawled and songs were written.
It was all Bushs fault.”
Gregory is nuts
Somewhere in journalist heaven, Lawrence B. Spivak is steaming,, just like the noxious pile MTP has become.
David Gregory opens his mouth and proves that he has a screw loose.
David just got back from the Corporate Shrink, can't you tell.
Blame Bush will not improve his ratings, but it will secure his job.
It’s not that terrorism didn’t exist, it’s that there was an “acceptable level” of terrorism in the world. Leftists say that the level increased because we fought against it instead of just laying back and enjoying it.
I guess acceptable would mean that someone else died instead of them or their families.
Worse? How much worse could it be than 9-11?
Idiot Gregory really does need therapy.
The twit Gregory has achieved his goal. At least people are talking about him and his show. Any “ink” is good ink as the old saw goes.
This kind of idiocy could only come from today’s left. I told a huge lefty I used to work with that it was literally quite beyond stupid, and it would be the same as WWII era Americans wringing their hands and saying, “Oh we shouldn’t train armies, build tanks and planes and FIGHT the NAZIS, ‘cause that will just make ‘em mad at us.”
That's like hiring a PR firm to study why no one likes stepping in dog crap.
When Bush left office we almost had the war won, even the Iranians were ready to overthrow their terror sponsoring dictators.
El-Presidente sided with the terrorists and surrendered, thus emboldening the terrorists. Now we will have to start over again. Nice job Berry!
Send him to Afghanistan.
Yes, that damn Bush invaded Afghanistan and Irag, and then those Islamists flew the planes into the Twin Towers. I’m sure that’s the way it happened. (snicker)
