Inside the Beltway - Treason's cousin
The Washington Times ^ | November 19, 2003 | John McCaslin

Because news outlets like to remind President Bush how many American servicemen have died since he declared an "end" to major combat in Iraq, a new military and intelligence-themed Internet site spells out reasons for the current U.S. deployment.

"America is at war," reminds IntelMemo.com. "We are at war against the network of international terrorists who committed the mass murders of September 11th. We are at war against the survivors of Saddam Hussein's regime and against the remnants of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Americans have died and continue to die in this struggle."

Looks like Rockfeller has changed his tune a bit. Now he admits it came out of his office:

Faced with Republicans' continuing refusal to conduct a complete investigation into these matters, my staff recently drafted an options memo on the use or potential misuse of intelligence. The memo, intended only for me, was pilfered from the usually secure Senate intelligence committee and distributed to the media. It has become a convenient excuse for Republicans to shut down the committee and curtail the investigation.

-- Senator Jay Rockefeller, in the Washington Post

They're still sticking to the "options memo" spin, I see. Here's what Senator Kit Bond had to say about that tactic:

Some people on the other side have said this is just an options memo tossed up for review. I have been around here for a few years, and a staff person on his or her own doesn't write a memo saying, "We have carefully reviewed our options under the rules and we believe we have identified the best approach. Our plan is as follows."

I notice that ProtestWarrior.com gets more attention than the DC Chapter of FR in local news. Why? Because they have a good website, print T-shirts, and market themselves!

This is the key to getting our messages out. WEBSITES!! MEGA KUDOS to the FRN for putting this site together and BIG BUMP to encourage other such message sites.

Yes.
But there are some that need to be called 'infidel' to their faces to understand it.
And even then, some of them will continue to believe that if they just cooperate, everything will be fine.

Inside the Beltway - Treason's cousin

From the link within your article, Chad Fairbanks.
Thanks for the post and ping, folks ! ...

America is at war.

We are at war against the network of international terrorists who committed the mass murders of 9/11. We are at war against the survivors of Saddam Hussein's regime, and against the remnants of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Americans have died, and continue to die in this struggle.

The leadership of the Democratic Party is also at war.

However, their war is against President George W. Bush. And this war is the highest priority of Democratic decision-makers -- even within the traditionally nonpartisan Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

On November 5, 2003, Americans were given an unprecedented look inside the Democrats' war, when Fox News published an astoundingly revealing memorandum from within the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, describing how Democrats on the Committee intend to use their positions, influence, and access to information - not to help win the war on terror, or to protect American citizens - but to undermine the Bush Administration. The memo describes their agreement to launch an "independent investigation" as a means to that end, timed to coincide with the 2004 presidential campaign.

The purpose of a real investigation, of course, is to gather information, analyze it, and arrive at a conclusion. But the memo makes it clear that the Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have already reached their conclusions. This "investigation" is a sham, intended purely to support and publicize their political agenda.

By signing onto this scheme, the Democratic members of the Senate Committee on Intelligence have abused their positions, undercut American troops and agents in the field, and violated their oaths of office.

This must not stand.


Please let me know if you want ON or OFF my General Interest ping list!. . .don't be shy.

Sen. Miller's terminology makes me think of treason's second cousin?

I do believe that is not the 2nd cousin, but treason itself. Go look in an illustrated dictionary, this picture is, or at least should be, beside the word Treason. Even Benedict Arnold was still technically a British subject when he did what he did, so was merely a traitor to the revolution, not to "his" country. But, maybe I've missed something, did the Impeached One get ChiCom citzenship right after he was inaugerated the first time?

When FDR took office he declared war on capitalism and free markets, until he got sidetracked by World War II. And he did a lot of damage. Now, the Democrats are waging war not just against President Bush but against every decent, hardworking family in America. This time, we're not distracted by despair and hunger, so we can truly fight back.

Nope, he's a big ol' hound dog. The people who gave him to me (we're his fourth owners -- he's a lot of dog) said he was a Labrador-dry mouth St. Bernard (whatever that is) mix. He's all legs, nose, and ears, and when he gets mad, he barks like a poodle (ky-YI, ky-YI).

I think he's related to Stitch, but I can't prove it. If the mothership lands in my back yard, I'm going to be really ticked off.
