Mansoor Ijaz slamming Richard Clarke on Fox'N Friends
Fox News Channel

Posted on 03/22/2004 4:28:39 AM PST by ReleaseTheHounds

Mansoor Ijaz just called Richard Clarke essentially a liar. Challenged virtually all of his claims -- and accused Clarke of stonewalling Ijaz's efforts to capture Bin Laden via the Sudanese.

Ijaz said that in the negotiations he was trying to arrange to get Bin Laden in US custody, CLARKE personally blocked his way.

Said he'd meet him anywhere, any time, to discuss this on TV.

Condi also did a good job answering his charges - saying this was the guy in charge as Clinton, busy with that fat devil in the blue dress, did nothing about terrorism during the 90's.

Clarke is a liar.

We need to press big media on this. Write, call, or email these facts to them. Don't let them get away with their typical one-sided pro-DNC reporting!

Here's a FReeper created list of almost all big media's email.

And Condi Rice followed stating, among many things, that Clark's method of dealing with terrorists obviously wasn't working! Clark had ten years (8 with Klinton) and never accomplished a thing!

Another interesting point Ijaz made is that Bubba and Halfbright didn't mention AQ in their briefings to their incoming opposite numbers. Tellijng omission. And anyone who doesn't think the 9-11 Commission is there to cover Bubba's backside should take note of the timing of Clarke's testimony. It's no accident.

As a journalist, rather than a 'government man', Mansoor doesn't have the political axe to grind, that Clarke does. That gives Mansoor much greater credibility.

Mansoor did say that Richard Minter's book was more factual than Clarke's.

I should also add that the timing of Clarke's testimony also helps Kerry for obvious reasons. The 9-11 families and the nation deserve better than this travesty of a commission.

He basically called Clark a liar. Rice on her part looked shaken to me. The impression I got was that she couldn't believe that this guy was trying to rewrite history and would stab her in the back. I'm more than convinced that those who hate Bush are completely blinded because of this hate.

And when 43 came in, Clarke was demoted from his cabinet-level position. Gee, wonder why the lamestream never mentions that little fact.

Can someone point out the list of things Mansoor has stated that were found to be actually true?

I appreciate his response to Clarke, but I don't know if I buy his BS all the time because I've had a hard time finding something he stated or claimed that was true.

Could anyone please show me something!

Read Miniter's book. It's got quite a bit on Ijaz, especially on what happened with UBL and Sudan. No-one's refuted word one of that.

Sorry, don't have time to do the due diligence for you -- maybe try a Google search if you're really interested.

From my perspective, Monsoor has always been candid, informed, sober in his opinions and perspective, and prescient. He's well connected and doesn't appear to have an axe to grind. Plus he has been "helpful" in both Clinton Administration and in the Bush Administration.

Now get to work.

Awesome!

Can hardly wait for his testimony before the Commission. Perhaps the dims are trying to forstall some of what they know is coming?

Condi has been following this guy around playing tag team with him. This is fun to watch. No more Joe Wilson crap this time. The WH has learned its lesson from last summer: no charge unanswered. And when the Bush people do answer, it's done with effect.

Condi was marvelous this morning. You should have seen her.

Be Seeing You,

Chris

Many of the Clinton Legacy posts have the information. Richard Minter's book has alot of corroborating details. Dick Morris articles address many of the same topics.

She sliced and diced - making it clear again that the adults are in charge now.

Furthermore, Rick Leventhal (embedded reporter at Fox) was interviewed this morning and stated categorically that EVERY city/village the Americans walked into last year they were greeted with smiles, waves, and thanks.

Now Mansoor trashes Clarke.

There is an unorchestrated fullcourt press on....and I'm lovin' it!

My concern is, and this is confirmed by previous examples (Joe Wilson and the SOTU 16 Words, the so-called AWOL, Bush did cocaine, etc), that big media will basically push Clarke's allegations while ignoring any substantial counterpoints or fact verification.

I disagree. Rice looked angry. She went through Clarke like a hot knife through warm butter.

She's seen this before, and she doesn't like it. And I agree with her. It's assclown stuff. Trust me on this: she isn't shaken; she's angry. On ABC's GMA, she had to sit there and listen to Clarke give his spiel for almost ten minutes. When Gibson turned to her it was like watching a thoroughbred bolt out of the gate. She lit into Clarke, then into his arguments. She's angry, and Bush and Rove said, "Do your worst, Condi!" VERY nice to see how quickly the WH is at shooting this down.

Be Seeing You,

Chris

In a nutshell, It used, shall we say, less then nice words to discribe Mansoor. As is always the case with DU'rs, cuss when you can't negate the facts :)

Wow. Sounds like Mansoor Ijaz has got quite a track record of BS, sirchtruth. Can you post up 4 or 5 examples of this BS, just off the top of your head? I mean, should be pretty easy, neh?

It's unfortunate - but Condi's voice always quavers, and for those completely dull to the facts (meaning most 'Rats), it may sound like she's not telling the truth. However, her points and arguments are incisive and impossible for 'Rats to refute.

Mansoor has done everything he can to fight terrorism (short of putting on a uniform) for a long time. Let the gloves come off. Ijaz vs.Clarke would be a pay-per-view event.

Bush just did NOT learn from history; You cannot keep Clinton hold overs around and expect them to have loyalty to the COUNTRY...they are loyal to the DEMOCRATIC party ONLY...Bush should have cleaned house (particularly at the State Department).

I'm so grateful to see this level of sanity and courage from a Pakistani immigrant. This is how we will win the war on terror: when good people from these tortured lands realize what the real enemy is: religious intolerance and pan Arabic fascism. It'll all be over when they finally decide to take up arms against those evils. When their fury is equal to or greater than that of the terrorists, then we will be done with this. And none too soon.

It's too bad that our Democratic legislators aren't willing to admit what a Pakistani national has the guts to say on national TV.

See all our nobles begging to be slaves!
See all our fools aspiring to be knaves!
All, all look up with reverential awe
At crimes that 'scape or triumph o'er the law;

While truth, worth, wisdom daily they descry:
'Nothing is sacred now but villainy.'
Yet may this verse (if such a verse remain)
Shew there was one who held it in disdain.

He looked extremely PO'ed by the end of the segment, like he was going to be mad long after he was off the air. Hopefully, he will put that anger to constructive use.

Ah, but look what happened with Joe Wilson and Joe Wilson's wife. The WH players were in Africa when that broke. They didn't respond meaningfully, and when they did, it looked like butt-covering was going on. The WH wasn't in campaign mode last summer. Now they are; watching Rice go at this guy with a bayonet tells you the difference between now and then.

Rove and his people know that if you trot out Rice to answer charges, the Networks have to cover her, no matter how much the nets want to flog the Clarke book. That's why this morning's contest between Rice and Clarke was so important to have happened.

Sorry, but someone needs to tell Prince John of Beacon Hill that there will be no free rides this year.

Be Seeing You,

Chris
