The New York Times is finally admitting that the WMD's were there and are missing. Chalk one up for Dubya.
Hey, I admire their spunk. ...
My friends would flip out when I said I wanted to be WJCs' understudy...
Can't stand him - however if he's that good - and one must admit - he's good at what he does - :-) - then why not learn and do good things with the talent.
If he and Hill are "that" bad then why does the marketplace still support them?
Obviously the accuracy of the opinion of the Iraq's Ministry of Science & Technology is a secondary issue.
You nailed it.
Did the UN Doofus's put seals on the doors to the tunnels interconnecting the bunkers??
Pay no attention to that old, gray lady behind the curtain.
Anyone catch this on little green footballs?
NYT Missing Explosives: A Fraud
A bombshell from Cliff May at The Corner, who alleges that the New York Times story on missing explosives in Iraq is a complete fraud, deliberately leaked by the IAEA to embarrass the Bush administration. (Hat tip: Ed Moran.)
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 dont reveal my sources so if that means I end up sharing a cell at Sing-sing with Judy Miller, so be it.)
Good point you're making here. Most of us never read between the lines and just see red. It is a shame that something like truth and integrity has lost all meaning for the fourth estate.
Don't forget the story behind the story: the journalist sleazebags at SeeBS wanted to put that story up on SUNDAY night, on the eve of the election, when the truth would not have time to come out or be disseminated.
"Our front page story of October 25 reported accurately that a senior official at Iraq's Ministry of Science & Technology informed the International Atomic Energy Agency in a letter on October 10 that the materials were lost from the Al-qaqaa site after April 9, 2003, through the theft and looting of the governmental installations due to lack of security."
The IAEA wasn't there and have no idea when the materials were lost, stolen or given to Syria by Saddam.
And waiting to post that report until the week before the election has a particular stench about it, faintly French.....
Your figuring is exactly what I'm talking about with us being able to add 2 plus 2, the way the Dems, Kerry and Edwards would have it, is for us all to hand over our minds in "blind trust". I've considered that a fate worst then death since I turned 18. Where is the independent minded American thinker now days, only on a few blogs?
"When Al Qaqaa was under Saddam Hussein's control, inventory management was efficient and reliable, and Americans could sleep at night," saYS Kerry." I'd like to see that as a NYTIMES HEADLINE!!
This means insiders would need at most 8 60 foot vans and several front end loaders. Not a big requirement but enough to permit a move in less than 12 hours.
The NYT seldom tells the truth when it comes to politics.
All those years getting a journalism degree and never knowing that it's where Kerry lives!
