MemoGate- sedition, slander-- or something worse?

Politicized Memo Creates Row
Washington Post ^ | November 6, 2003 | Dana Priest
The FACT that certain unknown Democrats are focusing more on taking down the president than intelligence, while we are at war and 2 years after suffering the worst attack on this country's soil, is unacceptable and as Zell Miller said, borders on treason.

Memo infuriates senators
Washington Times ^ | 11/06/03 | James G. Lakely
They got in such a twist over the Rumsfield memo the Dems were calling for him to resign.
Now this...  comes out and boy, o boy, the 'rats are running for cover like roaches when the lights are turned on.
 
 
Democrats can not be trusted with national security. This is the proof.
--Can't wait to see the spinning on this one. Money says the Democrats go on the offensive and accuse Bush of not giving them proper intelligence or some such. The more you pin these people down the louder they scream--
 
 
Traitors in High Places
The Freedom Institute ^ | November 4, 2003 | Adam Yoshida
"The Democrats put a higher priority on getting rid of George Bush than they do on getting rid of international terrorism."
Exactly. They're fanatics.

Quote from Zell Miller ( D-Ga ):
"If what has happened here is not treason, it is its first cousin."
 
 
Zell Miller is on Linda Vester's show Zell says heads should roll over this You don't compromise intellegence in a time of War --
I called my two senators and congressman and they said they have been getting bombarded with calls on this latest outrage. Staffers told me that the voters are absolutely seething over this.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This has gone passed the point of partisan politics and is entering the realm of sedition...
 
 
As expected, most of the media is blacking out the story on the leaked Democrat memo...
Of course you know if this was the other way around...it would be the lead story for a month.

A memo circulated among Democrats on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence shows the committee's minority plotting to use classified information against the White House in next year's presidential campaign.

'DISGUSTING' DEM MEMO: HOW TO GAIN FROM WAR PROBE
NY POST ^ | November 6, 2003 | BRIAN BLOMQUIST
A group of European social democrats, led by former British Foreign Minister Robin Cook, met last week with several top Democratic politicians and party officials. They included US senators Hilary Clinton and Joseph Biden.
They also had meetings with Ron Klain of presidential candidate Wesley Clark's campaign, and Stan Greenberg, former US President Bill Clinton's campaign strategist in 1992." http://209.157.64.200/focus/f-news/1006977/posts

I second that backhoe, but being a Georgia country boy like yourself, leave off the dear and sweet adjectives more emphasising the "asset to FR" part of Onyx's post.:)

Wonder where ABCCBSNBCCNN are, who were so concerened with national security during the Plume affair, but have been silent on this one.

They are just as treasonous as the dims.

I'm very partial to businessman Herman Cain, but it's looking like the local GOP is going to through their money behind either Issakson or my current represenative Mac Collins.

Thanks for the links. It was so frustrating yesterday - I tried to write Roberts and his email link did not work. I finally got through but have doubts it actually went.

Taxpayer funds are not to be used to provide a witch hunt tool for the democrat party to use to destroy an elected president when he is fighting a war.

I expect NO CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS TO BE PROVIDED TO THIS COMMITTEE UNTIL THIS COMMITTEE ABUSER IS REMOVED. If the democrats are so power-crazed that they will sabotage a sitting president while he is fighting terrorists to protect this nation, they will leak, sell, take bribes - anything for power.

We cannot afford to trust a democrat with top-secret information due to their exposed activities.

Thanks for those pings... I think this will be an interesting trial of the New Media, and just how effective it really is.

We all know the standard Establishment Media's treatment is "just never mention this again"-- or claim "hey, we already covered that- let's Move On..."

So we shall see if the alliance between sites like FR, the blogs, and talk radio can call this to the attention of enough citizens and voters to make a difference.

JMO, I think it will.

I can't believe how unpatriotic, partisan, and mean these birds have become.

Men like Scoop Jackson or Sam Nunn would have died before stooping so low-- indeed, I don't think such old-fashioned Democrats would ever have even entertained the idea of such putrid shenannigans.

Done - I've spread my wrath far and wide.

Here is my letter sent to Rockefeller and others on the committee.



Apparently, this memo exposes the fact that the Senate Intelligence Committee has been confiscated for use as a witch hunt tool of the Democrat Party. The purpose being - bring down this president no matter what.

So, since this is the case - the Senate Intelligence Committee is no longer a valid committee. The country cannot afford to provide war time intelligence to a committee whose purpose is to take down the President of the United States.

How stupid do the democrats think we are to turn over top-secret records to witch-hunters. Do they really expect a Commander-in-Chief to be willing to TRUST security information in the hands of those so desperate for power they confiscate a top security committee?

I will be even more furious if this administration puts our soldiers and our security contacts at risk by giving the information to be used to seek power by an opposing party. They would not be able to do anything with that information if they could not get it out to the public. It then endangers our intelligence informants, our soldiers, our war efforts.

No, the Democrats have shot themselves in the rear end on this.

NO INTELLIGENCE TO THIS COMMITTEE UNTIL THOSE INVOLVED IN THIS SUBVERSION ARE CLEARED OUT.

This is an abuse of taxpayer funds. I do not intend to spend taxpayer funds to help the Democrats take down a sitting president in the midst of executing a war.
