Please check out Phsstpok’s EXCELLENT Sunday Talk Show PRE-Thread. It’s a great way to hear analysis on why the DBM picks the guests, what they’ll probably discuss, and other pertinent facts. Also, check out his blog!

Good morning, Alas.

I wonder if the country will tire of this way too long presidential campaign. Perhaps many are not paying any attention.

I’ll be interested to see how thoroughly Tim grills Tenet on his inconcistencies. Why do I get the feeling it’s going to be a Cheney bash-fest?

Thanks AB and Good Morning to EveryOne! (Thanks also to Rod for those kind words.)

CIA Senior Operative Calls Tenet A Liar, but for MSM - he is a "hero". Another liar was their hero too, who has paid fines for his lies & got impeached.

I was hoping Fred Thompson would be on.

As a followup to his great speech Friday night.

Don’t you think it would be wise for republicans to avoid these stupid sunday shows & rather appear on Rush, Hannity, Hewitt & Ingraham likes?

Is it possible for you to post a link to the ratings for these Sunday shows? They are just used as propaganda tools by the left, because certain comments become talking points both in Congress and in the DBM. Other comments - favorable to Republicans, conservatives or the Administration just get dropped down the memory hole.

Excellent link anita!! Looks like Tenet did indeed throw us all a huge "Curve" ball. once again it's sad that GW kept so many Clintonistas on board.

He did so I am sure in a Christian manner of taking a person at his word until proven otherwise. But in the winner take all game of big league politics truth can be elusive at best.

Actually it might make more sense to do both.
Appear on the Sunday shows to discredit the msm/dbm with the truth and appear with Rush et all to increase support in their base.

Fred needs conservatives, moderates, independents and right-progressives to win the Presidency.

If Fred is on Rush or Laura, he’s singing to the choir. He speaks to a more demographically rich audience when he’s on the Sunday talk shows.

Sunday show ratings are released by networks themselves via press releases. NBC & CBS does this regularly. Even on their releases, while they claim lead over the other, truth is that over-all they LOST 25 to 30% of their viewers as time goes by.

This is just as true like while Fox is top on ratings over other cablers, it also sufferred ratings hit. Remember during 2002, whenever President makes a prime-time or SOTU speech FNC came very near to catch broadcast networks. EveryOne was predicting FNC was about to beat broadcast networks. Unfortunately, FNC started to hire liberals from other networks and sometimes more hostile to Bush & Republicans.

Excellent link, anita.

I found this comment in that thread very powerful, because we keep trying to separate some muslims from other muslims according to how ‘warlike’ they are.

From Captain’s Quarters:
Carol said the religion of peace died. Well, it did, but that was a lot longer ago than you may realize.

According to Robert Spencer and Gregory Davis, Islam was a religion of peace for the few years that Mohammad was in Mecca — before he had an army and was vulnerable to attacks from those who resented his claim to be the one and only prophet. This is the period of time when all of the “peaceful” and tolerant surahs were “revealed”. The surah that says, “There is no compulsion in religion” was “revealed” when Mohammed had no power to compel anyone.

Later, after he was forced out of Mecca and made his way to Medina, he began raising troops and resorting to warfare to spread his power and force others to accept him as the final and only authority to whom God spoke. During this period of time, the violent, kill-the-infidels-wherever-you-find-them surahs were “revealed”.

Someone pointed out that God wasn’t being consistent in his instructions, so Mohammed had another “revelation” in which Allah pointed out that he could “do all things”, including changing his mind and “abrogating”, or negating, previous revelations.

So the later, most violent of the surahs, the ones commanding all Muslims to engage in jihad and spread Islam by the sword, became official Islamic doctrine. And the hadiths that inform Muslims about Mohammed’s life — and therefore inform them of proper Islamic behavior — are full of brutal stories of Mohammed’s head-chopping conquests and slaughters.

I highly recommend reading “Islam 101” here: http://www.jihadwatch.org/islam101/

Tenet didn’t have to “throw a curve ball” to get his 15 minutes of fame. All anyone has to do to get onto these Sunday shows, is bash Bush - in a book, on stage, in front of a camera, and bingo. The DBM will pay good money for an interview.

I agree with you both on principle, but MSM goes out of their way to discredit our candidates. Example - Look how MSM is ignoring questions about economy, which were what MSM was saying will be the main cause for people to focus any elections. May be because, economy is now on our side?

Timmy is reading from Woodward’s book “Plan of Attack” as if the made up dialogue is fact.

Tenet says that didn’t happen. Says you owe the President your best discipline. (What the heck does that mean?)

Now Timmy makes up other dialogue that Tenet SHOULD have said, i.e., that it’s not a slam dunk.

The economy is indeed doing well, biggest news IMHO is just how fast the tax cuts have cut the budget deficit. Something we never hear about anymore from the DBM since it is coming down so rapidly.
But we know how they play the game. Our mission if we accept,is to counter them,and every year we do a better and better job of it.

Tim asks “Do you now believe that the war was a mistake?”

Tenet gives a non-answer.

Chris Dodd is an idiot, just lie after lie after lie, and unfortunately Chris Wallace is not countering him, although he did try. Dodd keeps saying that AQ is NOT in Iraq and we need to redeploy to Afghanistan where the real threat is. What a dweeb and an idiot. These democrats don’t have a clue, and Wallace should have been much stronger calling him on it. He would have if Dodd was a republican, but he just lets him skate.

Wallace should ask him why he and his colleagues refuse to debate on FNC. Will he?

For me, the most damning admission by Tenet is that he met with Bush SIX DAYS A WEEK but did not tell him about the threat assessment in the summer of 2001 because “presidents are not the action persons, the National Security Officer is the correct chain of command.”

If I were Clinton, G.. forbid, I would sue Tenet for defamation, for writing that he did not talk to Clinton but to Sandy Berger - the action guy!

Timmy’s entire focus this morning is on WMD. Not one other reason for taking out Saddam has been or will be mentioned.

The jist of it is that the President, VP and Condi are all liars and Tenet’s fault is in not calling “time out.”

So- it appears that due to the immaturity and infighting at Langley, the president was given incomplete and distorted information. Is that about it, in a nutshell?

And now George Tenet (talk about being in a state of denial) wants to somehow talk his way out of taking responsibility for the repurcussions.

Is there any reason to think this mentality is no longer operative at the CIA?

Tim is not getting quite what he wants from Tenet but he is just proceeding as if he is.

Tenet is now beginning to understand just how under attack he is and has crossed his arms. I think he is trembling just a bit.
