AL GORE TO ACCUSE BUSH ADMINISTRATION OF INTENTIONAL DISTORTION ON IRAQ/AL QAEDA TIES
Drudge ^ | 6/22/04

Posted on 06/22/2004 2:40:45 PM PDT by finnman69

Washington, DC-- In a major Washington policy address this Thursday, former Vice President Al Gore will accuse the Bush Administration of intentionally misleading the American people by continuing to falsely claim a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda.

He will charge that Bush and Cheney have "institutionalized dishonesty as an essential element of their policy process."

Gore will also urge the broadcast media to further resist Administration efforts to manipulate and intimidate them, to fearlessly report the fact that there is no Al Qaeda/Saddam collaborative relationship, as the 9/11 Commission staff report has concluded.

Gore will also discuss the implications of the Administration's claim to be above the law in ordering the torture of suspects - and their claim that the Commander in Chief's power trumps all other laws. He will call for the Administration to reveal all orders given the military on the treatment of prisoners.

As Algore once again proves his bona fides as a valued member of the AlQaida North American Ground Support Team.

Anyone else starting to think the RATS are conspiring to use Gore as a lightning rod to make Kerry look saner and more moderate? Or has Al truly lost it?

Kerry is very stealthy and we need to bring him out into the light. Lets make Kerry respond to Gore's outrageous claims.

Well, that's the last we'll hear of that then. A Gore endorsement = a death sentence, candidate or policy.

Time to dive into those 1998 news archives for Gore al Quaeda/Iraq quotes.

Did I mention Algore was in charge of revamping airline security pre-9/11? Bang up job Al

Gore's timing is so bad it can only mean we will find direct links between Iraq and AQ within a few hours of the speech.

I guess Al "Jazera" Gore found a way out of the nuthouse again. What a sad, pathetic, bitter, little man. Much like the rest of the democratic party.

Explains the softening-up today of Lehman by Pincus and Royce citing the usual unnamed resources. Lehman gave his name and has a good reputation, a tough nut to crack.

Kerry campaign is pretty slick in making these semantic games seem important. They got their digs in on Cheney via those staffers on the Prague-Atta affair who got the commission to make a finding even George Tenet could not.

I'm actually starting to feel sorry for him now.

I can't even make fun of him anymore without feeling guilty.

His kids should really step in and stop him from embarrassing himself. They are really falling down on him.

Before Gore does this, he might want to reconsider. It was Clinton's Justice Department after all that got an indictment against Osama bin Laden which referenced the fact that OBL wouldn't attack Iraq in exchange for WMD training.

Additionally, during the 90's the mainstream media wrote hundreds of articles which detailed the world alarm at the growing relationship between Saddam and OBL.

It's so funny to watch the leftists deny they know that which they once knew (and wrote about).

Many links between OBL and AQ found here:

"there is no Al Qaeda/Saddam collaborative relationship"

Recalls similar testimony:

"there is no relationship with Ms. Lewinsky"

Of course there is no relationship: Saddam's in the klinker.

All depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is.

No, it's to get Bush's and Cheney's "trustworthiness" rankings down. All well orchestrated, the 9/11 Commission is in on it too - for example, little inserts into the "staff" reports that may seem insignificant to the big picture but are selected and amplified in the usual suspects - NYTimes, WashPost and Newsweek.

Actually, they've been very effective. Most second tier media won't question those outlets despite nemver naming a source for their reflexive denials within 24 hour newscycles.

Okay. While he's at it, perhaps someone will come out and explain how the sitting Vice President of the United States (yes, I agree, it's hard to say that) tried to steal the 2000 election. The RNC has been pretty quick to answer the "other side of the aisle" lately...

Then he and the rest of the naysayers can sit back as evidence after evidence is shown to him about how there WAS a link between Sadaam and Al Qaeda...and, very likely, a link between Sadaam and 9-11 (though the Administration did not say that there was such a latter link).

What greater pain in life is there (aside from death) than being utterly irrelevant?

No kidding.

Excuse me? Why is Al Gore making a "major foreign policy address?" He's a private citizen - he doesn't hold public office, anymore -- he doesn't frigging MAKE foreign policy! I mean, if we're tuning in on the psycho-babble rant factor from unimportant civilians, let's get Ted Turner to make the foreign policy addresses - he's entertaining, especially when he puts that tin-foil pyramid on his head......oh, he doesn't? Too bad - would be so much easier to identify the moonbats that way.

Gore has truly lost it. I think this reflects a defense mechanism called "projection" where one sees their own fault and shortcomings in others when it does not exist but fail to see it in themselves where it does exist(related closely to paranoia). Besides if anyone knows about "institutionalized" its Al Gore.

What a freakin' joke. The media and Gore are both manipulating the Saddam/AQ relationship. Perhaps, insead of reading what the 9/11 Commission "staff" is saying, they might actually listen to what the Commission Chairs are saying.

Both Hamilton and Kean have not only reprimanded the media for the misrepresentations...they've agreed with Cheney and Bush that there was, indeed a connection between Saddam and AQ. Perhaps Gore also missed the little detail of one of Saddam's Lt. Col's being an active member of AQ. This guy's gone off the deep-end.

That the leftists are trying to undermine national security and national unity is in itself a disgrace.

AND, I'll repeat myself:

Gore had best be careful. We Freepers have links and can write letters by the hundreds using links we have.

Clinton's Justice Department indicted OBL in 1997 and linked OBL with Iraq!!!!!!!!!

"If you allow someone like Saddam Hussein to get nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, chemical weapons, biological weapons, how many people is he going to kill with such weapons? He's already demonstrated a willingness to use these weapons. He poison-gassed his own people. He used poison gas and other weapons of mass destruction against his neighbors. This man has no compunction about killing lots and lots of people...."

"...Ooooops, wrong speech."

There is something really sick about these people. Oh, I know Gore is deliberately being the attack dog to appeal to the dem left. But to do that in wartime with no regard for the consequences is truly sick. These people either don't care about America, or hate America.

Gore will also discuss the implications of the Administration's claim to be above the law

in freely committing perjury before a federal grand jury, using government property and employees in support of the 1996 reelection campaign, selling military secrets to the Chinese in exchange for illegal campaign contributions....

Oops, wrong Administration.

You have to wonder, don't you, how many moderate Dems voted for Gore for Prez back in 2000 and after watching him over the last year, are more than a little grateful that he DIDN'T win?

Do the Moonbats think he has ANY credibility anywhere outside of New York, Los Angeles and the People's Republic of San Francisco?

Al....don't go away mad....just, you know, go the hell AWAY!
