Meredith Vieira Sees U.S. Defeat in Afghanistan
Newsbusters ^ | September 24, 2007 | Geoffrey Dickens

Posted on 09/24/2007 10:18:45 AM PDT by enough_idiocy

Vieira to Karzai: "A lot of Americans, here, are confused by this, what's going on Afghanistan. They say, 'Wait a minute, I thought we won that war, already and now the Taliban is back? What went wrong?' So I'm asking you sir-" Karzai: "We won." Vieira: "-what's gone wrong? You've won?" Karzai: "Yes, of course we won." Vieira: "What have you won?" Karzai: "The war against terrorism. The liberation of Afghanistan. These guys, the al Qaeda, Osama and their associates were running Afghanistan. Today you're talking to President Karzai, elected by the Afghan people." Vieira: "There's also killings everyday. So how do you reconcile that with this notion we've won?" Karzai: "We have won because we have defeated them from being the government, now they are the runaways. Outlaws. Hiding in the mountains, in caves."

Because there are killings we haven't won? Who ties her shoes for her? There were killings everyday in America after the revolutionary war to the present day, we never really won?

Apply this twit's "logic" to American cities like Detroit and New Orleans and explain to me what Democrat mayors have accomplished in the last 3 decades of rule and why the hell they keep getting elected.

That means she will chat up defeat of Americans in Iraq endlessly since her statement and pride is now on the line.

By her definition we’ve lost the war on crime, the war on poverty, the war on illiteracy, etc etc etc.

Someone should mention to her that illegal Mexicans are killing Americans in larger numbers every day.

Maybe she’d like us to give back the western United States to Mexico.

Apparently Karzai wasn’t briefed on the media’s defeatist agenda prior to the interview.

Karzai probably would just love to send Viera to “interview” the Taliban.

This woman is unqualified to hold an interview with a potted plant much less the President of Afghanistan. The last time this woman had an coherent thought President Reagan was still in office and it was just a fleeting one.

Apparently hosting the daytime version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" was the top of her intellectual game.

Karzai: We won.

Viera: Is that your final answer?

Karzai has fought a war, defeated his enemies, chased them into the hills, risen to the seat of power, been elected president of his country, and after all of that he finds himself submitting to be interviewed by people who couldn’t find his country on the map 5 years ago, if they could even now.

And still he carries it off with grace and aplomb.

Of course Vieira doesn’t have a clue. If she did, she could never get hired to appear on The View. The demographic they are appealing to make “clueless” a requirement. They are the “undecideds” we have to win over every election season, in case anyone wondered.

So now she’s on a morning talk/chatter/entertainment/fluff morning show. Before that, she was on a morning fluff women’s chatter blab show.

Now that she’s on this lightweight weather/entertainment drivel show she’s a policy expert? Any kind of expert? How does she pretend to have any kind of credibility? What a dumb-cluck. How did our society come to this?

Oh yeah, I forgot, she does something like the million dollar pyramid show.

Yes! Yes! I’ve still got my trifecta ticket for the Rosie/Perky/Merry Run for the Ratings, but I had come to suspect that Merry was smarter than the other two. Still waiting to collect when Merry queers her deal with the Today show. For me, this is wonderful news. To President Karzi, it was a bothersome gnat.

Ironically, of course, is all that he 'begs for' for his nation. . .atonomy and freedom is what of course, the world wants for all Iranians.

And yes, hope these students 'get' the lessons here. . .though not surprised; am still amazed at the applause he has received. Though he does seem to be on a 'diminishing return' track here. ;^)

An anniversary this past week puts the lie to Ms. Viera.

In 1953, Brown V. Education said that segregation in schools was no longer permissable and the law of the land changed.

In 1959, the integration crisis occurred in Little Rock high school and the military was called in to keep order.

To be sure, there have been offenses including killings and battles both physical and governmental in the intervening years, but that does not mean the war for equal rights wasn’t won.

Well. . .was thinking that given that they are probably stoned or hanged by age twelve; it may just be that they do not have any. . .and he is telling the truth. . .if only in a manner of speaking.

Perhaps, someone should have asked, should 'one' be found; what do they do with that person. . .lol save. ..the answer, could not be too funny, for sure. . .

Exactly, but if America isn’t defeated in Afghanistan, she’ll settle for creating the perception that it lost. The MSM isn’t so much concerned with the truth as the creation of its own truth.
