What Bush really said about Iraq -- excerpt from Bush's SOTU (REMINDER)(w. my major points about it)
White House ^ | January 28, 2003 | President George W. Bush
The Internet will spell the death of the Democrats.
For ages, they've been able to control public opinion via their lackeys in the media.
Now the public has access to the truth.

WHO LIED TO WHOM? (The Original Seymour Hersh Article About Uranium and Niger That Started It All!)
The New Yorker ^ | March 31, 2003 | Seymour M. Hersh
This seems to have been the first "mainstream" media attack on the Bush Administration regarding the Sixteen Words. I post it both for the sake of historical preservation, and in the hopes that someone here may be able to use the data within to trace how the RATS and the rest of the news media twisted and distorted he truth to create the giant nonevent that has the whole press corps salivating today.
Let's go with 16 WORDS

Here is the live thread where those of us watching the UN meet were making notes of what was being said. My link takes you to the exact post where the documents are first mentioned by freeper bvw. Note that by reading posts prior to that one, this mention does not top el Baradei's report and is mentioned in passing.

Rats Spin Has No End!

It's not 'SPIN'. It's LIES. Call a spade a spade, not a duck.
 
 
 
 
O.K., now I am confused. The liberal news media is excoriating Bush for some minor detail about uranium sales to iraq. On the other hand, greenpeace sends a "press release" to this new zealand website complaining that the locals are getting radiation poisoning from wallowing in uranium oxide...
 
 
Being an avid listener of the great talk radio host "Micheal Medved", I got a very clear distiction between what was said in the SOTU address and the edited version that was used for a campaign against Dubya...
 
 
IRAQ: Boiling Mad Over Bush - (The left is now up in arms about one sentence of SOTU)
The Washington Post ^ | Friday, July 11, 2003; 8:39 AM | Howard Kurtz
These idiots forgot 9/11. We don't. Neither does the president. We are war and the left continues sleep walking
 
 
 
The "He LIIIEEED. Impeach him" outcry you hear now on most of the radio and TV talk shows is obviously the brainchile of the DNC (if it can be accused ov having a brain), and is coming principally from RAT seminar callers...
The lap-dog media, baying with great voice, is trying to whip this up as something even worse than Nixon's Watergate. And few in the media can resist something they see as the next "Watergate"...
The public seems to yawn and view the whole episode with uninterested bemusement...

See my #18 for exact quotes by ALL major players in the Democratic party regarding Iraq and WMD (PS - They all KNOW he has/had them).

Re Graham's exact quote:"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction." -- Bob Graham, December 2002

Media Fraud: Press Still Misreporting Uranium Claim as 'False'
NewsMax.com ^ | 7/15/03 | Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff
Ari Fleischer called this a "media feeding frenzy." I think a more vulgar term is called for: this is a gangbang.

Latest punditry on O'Reilly Factor: Dick Morris just said this is just the 87th attempt by the dems to paint Bush into a corner and tar him with a trumped up charge, much like the museum looting.

His advice is Bush should focus on the positives being accomplished in Iraq.

O'Reilly tells the lib from CA (Bloomberg) that the American people don't care about this Africa story. My comment on that: Poll results must be coming in and it's another bust for the dems.

President Bush does best when he focuses on the positive, when he allows his own simple but truthful Christian self shine through. I can't wait for Blair on Thursday because I have a feeling the Dems will have their tails between their legs.

I don't know about future poll numbers, but I got a sick feeling when the Rat said this is a death knell for Bush...maybe the next set of numbers are worse...

btw I agree with Morris, Bush shouldn't go to Texas for a month. The rats will have a field day for a month.

SUPERB job, Backhoe. I can't thank you enough for collecting all of these links. That's the kind of research and assembling of facts that 99.9% of everyone in the media is too lazy to do these days. This thread is a terrific resource and it helps bring the entire matter into clear focus. For those of us so inclined to be activists, we can use this material to help inform people as to the truth.

Question: If we come up with useful new info, should we add it to this thread or start a new one? Maybe it depends on the info? Please let me know your opinions. Thanks.

Don't you think we should add it to this thread and keep it bookmarked? They can be separate threads of their own, but we can LINK them all here? How does that work for everybody?
