CRONKITE: KARL ROVE BEHIND BIN LADEN TAPE Sat Oct 30 2004 16:31:19 ET

Former CBSNEWS anchorman Walter Cronkite believes Bush adviser Karl Rove is possibly behind the new Bin Laden tape.

Cronkite made the startling comments late Friday during an interview on CNN.

Cronkite said he is "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing."

Interviewer Larry King did not ask Cronkite to elaborate on the provocative election eve accusation.

Drudge has picked up the Cronkite story. To think Cronkite was once one of the most trusted men in America? Sheesh!

Did anyone else read the transcript? He was either drunk or Arafat's not the only one suffering from dementia.

Yeah, right, Walter, and they flew him in on a black helicopter and shot the entire thing in the basement at Camp David. More tinfoil for your hat?

No, he was actually quite lucid in his hourlong interview with Mudd on the History Channel last night. What you're missing is that this is WHAT CONKRITE BELIEVED all those years he was reading the "news" on CBS and its what he believes now. Fascinating segment where Cronkite was asked about his little onair speech demanding US withdrawal from Vietnam in the wake of the Tet Offensive. He was apparently ordered to do it by Richard Salant, CBS News director, which tells you all you need to know about that "news" organization and what kind of trash ran it.

Oh, yes, Rove has Osoma on a leash in the basement of the White House....

What was Cronkite thinking?
Er, drop the "what" from that last sentence.

Sounds like King either took pity on the demented man, or he is losing it himself...

Isn't this the same Walter Cronkite that said in the early 70's that the world would turn into Antarctica by the end of the Century and the world would run dry of oil by 1990?

He's also the guy that uncritically aired, with deep solemnity, the charges of Winter Soldier (the rape, ears, heads crap of John THE LIAR Kerry).

Cronkite put as much thought and research went into his statement that Rove was behind the Bin Laden tape as he put into his reporting from Viet Nam.
Plenty of thought – what is bad for the USA – but no research.

I quit trusting Walter Cronkite as a news reporter/commentator back in late 1967. In early 1968 I realized he was the head of the NVA/VC’s Propaganda Department’s American Desk.

I'm beginning to think we really are on the verge of a civil war. There is just too much of a difference between them and us.

Is Cronkite really saying that Karl Rove got Osama bin Laden to make the tape?

Wow! Rove must have much more influence than I've ever given him credit for.

These people have taken tin-foil hat conspiracy-theories to a new level. It will be unbelievable if the American people actually put these people into power. Madness.
