Posted on 07/27/2004 7:22:20 AM PDT by ConservativeMajority
WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- Last week, the presidential campaign of Democratic candidate Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) very publicly distanced itself from former National Security Advisor Samuel "Sandy" Berger after it became known that Berger was under investigation for removing highly classified documents from the National Archives.
Talon News reported that Kerry's anti-terror policy was removed from the candidate's web site immediately following Berger's dismissal as a campaign advisor. But in the last few days, another advisor has apparently been jettisoned from the Kerry campaign. All traces of former Ambassador Joe Wilson, the central figure in the controversy of faulty intelligence about Iraq and uranium has disappeared from the Kerry web site. Wilson had appeared on a web site www.restorehonesty.com where he restated his criticism of the Bush administration. The link now goes directly to the main page of www.johnkerry.com and no reference to Wilson can be found on the entire site.
Wilson was discredited by a Senate Intelligence Committee report that contradicted Wilson's public statements about how he was selected for a sensitive mission to Niger in 2002 and the results of his report about Saddam Hussein's attempt to purchase uranium in Africa. Wilson represented his investigation as proof that President Bush misled the United States in making the case for the invasion of Iraq. An investigation into British intelligence confirms that Bush's claim was "well founded."
It is likely that Kerry's handlers took advantage of the Berger affair to quietly break official contact with someone who has proved to be something of a loose cannon. The ambassador was known for his vitriolic rhetoric against members of the Bush administration, particularly political advisor Karl Rove. Last year he suggested that Rove be "frog-marched from the White House in handcuffs," over the alleged leak of his wife's identity.
The Kerry campaign did not respond to a Talon News inquiry about Wilson's departure.

Kerry and Edwards are the bowls, or shall we say johns. We might be making a mistake flushing them so early and often. Maybe we should have left Berger and Wilson in the bowls a little longer to stink up and stain the joint. You know it takes a lot longer to clean a really dirty toilet than a cleaner one. Come November it might have been nicer to have the democratic bathroom a mess.
We've gotten many requests for a transcript of Ambassador Joe Wilson's chat this morning. He provided some dramatic insights into the workings of the Bush Administration, and talked about his feelings about having his wife's CIA identify exposed by the as yet unidentified senior White House aides. For more information about Joe Wilson, see www.restorehonesty.com.
NOTE: This is an unedited transcript recorded live, October 29, 2003 at www.johnkerry.com

Ambassador Wilson, my sister and I are ardent fans of yours and wish youd throw your hat into the ring. My questions, all related, are: how do we get a special prosecutor involved in the case involving your wife? Obviously, Ashcroft cant be allowed to investigatetalk about the fox guarding the henhouse!! Is bushs statement that he doesnt know whether the leaker will ever be found the end of the issue? Does anyone here believe that if he really wanted to find who leaked your wifes name, he couldnt? A crime has been committedin the name of revenge and intimidation! Is nothing going to happen? HELP!!!!

Thanks very much. For right now, I am most interested in seeing that we get John Kerry elected as the next President so we can get our destiny back on track.
Translation: No more shall we hear the dulcet tones of Sandy singing; "A Little song; A little dance; A few more papers down my pants".
Picture is blocked by my server. What site is it from?
Now it's there.
The scum and slimes descending,
On Old Boston town.
Smells like bloated rotting fish,
With them all around.
Bill and Hill and Al Gore too,
Jimmy Carters there.
Sandy Berger should show up,
Watch you files with care.
Ted Kennedy is belching,
Or is that his speech.
Hillary announces Bill,
With her famous screech.
Howard Dean will scream out loud,
Really draws a crowd.
Al Gore will bring his lock box,
Hell be shouting loud.
John Kerry and John Edwards,
Are the central theme.
Biggest libs to ever run,
This is one bad dream.
John will bring his Purple Hearts,
Bought so long ago.
Edwards will just stand and smile,
Nothing else to show.
Me, Ill keep the TV off,
I dont need their spew.
They arent selling what Id buy,
Hope thats true for you.

" I Wonder when Kerry will dump Teresa too."
After seeing her at the ballgame and on the "shove it" video, she strikes me as a potential loose cannon.
She dosen't need Kerry. She can have her pick of men that she would settle for and is obscencely wealthy. In public it appears she has some handlers, which could be a problem for her as she is used to speaking her mind and doing what she wants.
If Kerry challenges her for sticking her foot in her mouth on an issue it could very well be the straw that breaks the Camel's back in their relationship.
Wouldn't it be funny to see Theraaaaazah bitch slap Kerry in public?!
Nancy Pelosi for supreme court?
LOL! Well said. I'd like to see Team Bush pound the Sandy Berger issue until it bleeds. Eight years of treasonous crap (Los Alamos, Lee, etc) under Klinton needs to be shown again and again to the public to remind them of how dumb the libs are in Nat Sec issues.
I did so much for Kerry and the democrats, I made up that story that there were no contacts between Iraq and Niger and they took it to the bank. I was so happy, when they said "Bush Lied". Now look at what they are doing to me and my friend Sandy Berger. After all that we have done for them! Ingrates!
The bottom line here is, Kerry had total access to intelligence that would tell him that Wilson was lying. Kerry chose to go ahead, knowing that Bush was being falsely accused. What does this say about hKerry's future judgment?
You might call them "Suicide Bumblers."
If this had been anything to do with a Republican, the media would have issued this as a statement concerning the removal of the links:
"There is no doubt that the timing of this is politically motivated."
It's not from any site. I got it in an email from a friend.
The picture was taken on Route 38 in Racine County, Wisconsin. It is in someone's front yard & has a spotlight on it at night!
I would too but after a couple of days of Fox only coverage they would be talking to themselves in a empty room. The media doesn't care what crimes democrats commit.
LOL your poem says it all!
If you can;t see the photo....try putting this URL in your browser:
I like it
It finally popped up. Glad you liked the poem.
I think a wheel just fell off the John-john bandwagon. heheh
