Speaking of "lies," keep an eye on the front page of the Washington Times this coming Monday.

UPDATE: It's something that the Kerry campaign will be forced to address regarding a previous criticism of Bush's foreign policy. That's all that I'm saying

Now I'm confused. I thought she was really Jacques Chirac in a bad wig.

I had no idea that Kerry's truthfulness was ever in question.

AFAIK, he's a stone liar.

It's been around the internet for a while now that Kerry has people in Syria discussing their wmd's and what happened to Saddams.

One of them is a former Clinton aide.

It seems that Kerry is striking a possible deal with Syria. He will come out of this smelling like roses and saying...'See what diplomacy will do'.

I smell a really big fat rat.

The whole "Stolen Honor" was CYA for Sinclair. Pathetic. That the kept "POW Story" on the screen behind the moderator was a joke. It was a rehash of Michael Moore and Dan Rather's anti-Bush stuff.

That doesn't even sound close to something that would effect the election - Kerry have been all over the map when critisizing Bush's foreign policy. Who cares?

My local channel didn't air it. It was on the program guide, and when we tuned to the station, some "incredible video" show was on instead. I wonder what was up with that?

Fox news will pick it up, and maybe even MSNBC (Scarborough possibly)...that will force the others to at least mention it or risk what little credibility they have left.

It is on two blogs, which makes it more credible..they appear to have independent sources since the info is slightly different. One narrows it down specifically to the Washington Times. HOWEVER, it still could be one big scam.

I've heard from a friend in Washington that it will involve Senator Kerry illegally sending campaign officials (those advising him on foreign affairs) to negotiate with Syria and Iran.

That makes me think... We should also be watching out for the possibility that come Monday the exact opposite will happen, that the papers will pick up some big story that's bad for the President instead (ie, the DNC's October surprise). I don't want to be pessimistic or paranoid here, it's just that we have to be prepared for anything and everything... look at Sinclair, let's not let another bait-and-switch catch us off guard.

And, on the flip side, if this actually is a big story that really hurts Kerry, let's be ready to do our thing and help push it up the media ladder, like we did with the Rathergate story.

I am less inclined to think it's from Karl Rove and more inclined to think this could be the Clinton "torpedo" which is intended to take out Lurch.

UPDATE!!

News item this monday??? Two links from two blogs with an interesting buzz…

From INDC Journal:

Cryptic Alert Speaking of “lies,” keep an eye on the front page of the Washington Times this coming Monday.

UPDATE: It’s something that the Kerry campaign will be forced to address regarding a previous criticism of Bush’s foreign policy. That’s all that I’m saying.

Does anyone know, if there is an October surprise, why it is coming out after many states have had early balloting already underway? Are there really that many "undecideds" out there?

"I thought that everybody was waiting for Thursday to dump their dirt."

Preemptive strike, perhaps? You know, a big issue that literally sucks all the oxygen out of the MSM coverage room, lessening the time for impact of whatever the Dems have in store.

If this is off Powerline, it pays to pay attention to it. These guys are attorneys and were the ones who helped undo Dan Rather.

This could involve one of two things:

a. an expose about contacts between Kerry and the SRV in Paris (Le Duc Tho, that crowd).

b. an expose that the Saudis have promised lower oil prices to Kerry and support in Iraq in exchange for Kerry betraying the Israelis.

The second option seems more likely to me, as oil futures have been undergoing enormous speculative upward pressure. Now the reason why I bring this up is because of Krauthammer's piece in the WaPo yesterday, which raised this very issue. A grand bargain with the Rejectionist Front: make Kerry look good in Iraq in return for a sellout of the Jews of Israel. The Saudis would throw in plentiful oil supplies as a sweetener, of course.

If it is the second, then the Mossad has been very busy assembling documentation and wiretaps over the last months. Kerry has never taken security seriously during his career. I suspect that his campaign must be riddled with operatives from the FSB (aka, the KGB), MI6, and of course, Mossad. I wouldn't put it past the Saudis to fatten some secretary's Swiss Account in return for a real time flow of information to the Royal Family.

Be Seeing You,

Chris

Elsewhere on that site is a really interesting look at Hawaii.

Bush and Kerry are in a dead heat.

Well that is about the third time that scenario has been mentioned, so I guess you are probably correct. Now is the press will just tie this to meeting in Paris with the NVN, the story might have some legs. What would be the legal ramifications if true?
