Liberals don't care. The Big Lie was shouted often and loud enough so that it's a given, along with 'Bush avoided duty in Vietnam, Bush is stupid,' etc.. The MSM will attempt to avoid discussion of WMD's except on Fox where Moira Laisson dismissed them as 'degraded, unusable, so what'.
A bigger nightmare for the MSM is the horrific torture/murder of those two US servicemen. They're terrified it will enrage Americans to the point where dem's 'get out of Iraq now' won't work with voters. If the admin. takes the gloves off and fights the Iraq war the way it should be fought, if they release more information, more sites of WMD's, sets up photo ops of what they've found, the press won't be able to ignore it although they'll say it doesn't matter...the amounts were too small, weren't used, blah, blah, blah.
Dems think the only thing republicans have as a winning issue is national security/military might. If they can turn this into Vietnam redux, they think they'll retake congress and the WH with the connivance of the MSM. They're traitors and they don't care.
"If the admin. takes the gloves off and fights the Iraq war the way it should be fought, if they release more information, more sites of WMD's, sets up photo ops of what they've found, the press won't be able to ignore it although they'll say it doesn't matter..."
I agree with you on that - I believe our military and this administration needs to be more pro-active in getting this information out to the public -- talk about it constantly... say "I told you so" a little more often now...
Tony Snow needs to fill the Press Room with pics of what's been found - better yet - offer the press up-close personal views of some of the canisters and see if they are willing to take a sniff -- after all this stuff is all harmless now that it's so old, right? (o:
They'd say so what if NYC & DC were nuked on the same day... and then they'd blame Bush.
Alan Colmes on H&C said they were the "wrong WMD" and were "all pre-1991 and unusable" and that this report doesn't mean anything, implying that the release was for a Santorum election boost. The impression I had from the 2 congress-critters was that they found out about this report from an outside-the-government source, and only got access to it because they asked specifically for this report.
They said that Intelligence will only provide any information to congress if you know exactly what to ask for. That makes me wonder if part of the issue isn't so much the preference for 'closedness' of the Bush administration, but that the Intelligence Agencies are playing the same game with this kind of info they are with translation - 'we don't have the resources, that report isn't ready to be released, we don't have enough info to put together the pieces of the puzzle', etc.
It enraged people around here! ALOT of the cars have flags on them again, I saw 4 bumper stickers that neighbors added that say NUKE Mecca, people have put their flags back up outside their houses...all this started on the day we found the soldiers. Reminds me of 9/11 again and how many cars had flags and ribbons on them.
