Bomb-Gate(Ammogate) NY Times Iraqi arms story based on a false letter! (HERE WE GO AGAIN!)
National Review ^ | Cliff May

Posted on 10/26/2004 7:15:43 AM PDT by The G Man

This is a post by NR writer Cliff May on their "Corner" blog at NRO:

~~~~~~~~~~

BOMB-GATE [Cliff May]

Sent to me by a source in the government:

“The Iraqi explosives story is a fraud. These weapons were not there when US troops went to this site in 2003. The IAEA and its head, the anti-American Mohammed El Baradei, leaked a false letter on this issue to the media to embarrass the Bush administration. The US is trying to deny El Baradei a second term and we have been on his case for missing the Libyan nuclear weapons program and for weakness on the Iranian nuclear weapons program.”

(For the record, I don’t reveal my sources so if that means I end up sharing a cell at Sing-sing with Judy Miller, so be it.) Posted at 10:00 AM

I think the UN doesn't want President Bush to win reelection because they have a lot of dirt they need Kerry to sweep under the rug. I hope they all rot in hell.

No, you're right. Evidently it's not a forgery, just a lie, based on another lie.

As I recall the Times article was an elaborate and lengthy production by several reporters. Too bad they never bothered to check it.

The story does not say forgery, please change the headline.

BTW, the Rather memos were not forgeries. They were fabrications.

Still, a false letter is just as damaging. It means that the Times ran with a story without substantiating the facts. All they would have to do is call the Pentagon and check. Heck, they could have called their buddies at NBC to find out the truth.

It could be faked but authentic.

And Kerry just took the podium in Green Bay and lambasted "W" for this.

Seems the Senator's INTELLIGENCE is a little slow, or he just doesn't care whether he speaks the TRUTH or not.

I hope this is proved. The IAEA was embarrassed by the US/President Bush, and they simply want to get even.

Saddam Hussein was the nominal leader of an armed camp acting like a sovereign nation.

Just like in the mafia, the head of the family

serves at their pleasure and can be removed if

they so desire.

As more comes out about just how out of control

this country really was, it was only a matter of

sometime before a civil war broke out.

In the end, we did the right thing in going into

Iraq and getting rid of Hussein and the Baathists.

Birds of a feather. Their leftist mindset has finally just snapped --- LIES, LIES, LIES...it is what the left is all about. The MSM and their cohort counterparts in the leftist networks have gone WAY over the top.

THE HAVE BEEN EXPOSED!

the Rather memos were not forgeries. They were fabrications.

Actually, they were both... they were fabrications with forged signatures.

So how do you rewrite the headline?

It's not a forgery or fake; it's a real document that lies.

"False letter" lacks zing. How about "IAEA Lie"?

Not from want of trying. Go read what Drudge has to say. The Slimes took the story to CBS for 60 minutes but Drudge is saying that CBS couldn't get the story on the air ''fast'' enough...for the election eve broadcast, that is.

The Times' reporters probably verified their information by questioning each other. Who needs third party verification?

Our Ambassador to the UN should demand Mohammed El Baradei's resignation immediately if true.

LOL.

Add to that the fact that NBC reported last night they had embedded reporters with our troops at that weapons depot on 4/1/03 and the weapons were already gone!

I've called the NYT this morning to complain. Let them know we're onto their game.
