Times Downplays Intelligence Nominee’s Ties To Hostile Foreign Powers
Boycott The New York Times ^ | March 13, 2009 | Don Feder

Yesterday’s New York Times story on Charles W. Freeman’s decision to withdraw his name from consideration for a top intelligence post was yet another instance of the paper trying to distance Obama from what could have been a disastrous personnel decision.

Freeman, who was tapped to head the National Intelligence Council (which produces the National Intelligence Estimates that are vital to policy making), is not only rabidly anti-Israel, but has ties to hostile foreign powers that go way beyond questionable.

The Times claimed, “When Dennis C. Blair, the director of national intelligence, announced that he would install Charles W. Freeman, Jr. in a top intelligence post, the decision surprised some in the White House” (emphasis added). Sure, and the president had no idea his minister of 19 years was anti-American.

He was just on the payroll of the Red Chinese and the Saudi and Yemini governments.

The news media have ignored very incendiary remarks, that the U.S. brought 9-11 on itself, made by Mr. Freeman following Al Qaeda’s murder of thousands of Americans.


[Freeman commented at a Washington Institute for Near East Policy meeting in 2002 that, “And what of America’s lack of introspection about September 11? Instead of asking what might have caused the attack, or questioning the propriety of the national response to it, there is an ugly mood of chauvinism. Before Americans call on others to examine themselves, we should examine ourselves.”[12] In October 2005, Freeman told another Washington conference: “On the question of U.S. strikes on targets on Iran or elsewhere, I simply want to register what I think is an obvious point; namely that what 9/11 showed is that if we bomb people, they bomb back.”[13],_Jr.
