My Letter To Bill O'Reilly Tonight
The Factor-Fox News ^ | 7-30-2003 | Self

Posted on 07/30/2003 8:03:21 PM PDT by Matchett-PI

Greetings Mr. O'Reilly,

If you're not just playing dumb, and really don't know where the WMD are, may I suggest that you get Kenneth R. Timmerman (of Insight Mag.) as a guest on your show --- SOON!

This is the second night in a row I watched you parroting the Democrat mantra, demanding that Bush tell us where the WMD are.

You appear to be out of the loop. That's not good that someone in your position is so much in the dark about what's going on.

I've provided you some succinct excerpts and links to what Mr. Timmerman wrote when he accompanied Powell to Syria on May 3, 2003. This will get you up to speed. I'll look forward to seeing Mr. Timmerman on your show.

Warm regards, [Name and Town]

Sending a Serious Message to Syria

Posted May 28, 2003 By Kenneth R. Timmerman

http://www.insightmag.com/main.cfm/include/detail/storyid/437029.html

"The May 3 meeting in the presidential palace on the hilltop overlooking Damascus was short and to the point.

Secretary of State Colin Powell, flanked by State Department Arabists, told Syrian dictator Bashar Assad that the U.S. victory in Iraq had changed the way America plans to do business in the Middle East.

The days of the cozy deals and of winking and nodding at Syrian support for terrorism were ended. He then presented Assad with a list of U.S. demands that was nothing short of breathtaking.

Powell told the Syrian president that the United States requires him to help in the search for hidden Iraqi weapons.

The United States believes the weapons were taken in convoys of tanker trucks to Syria last fall, along with key production equipment, and buried in the Syrian desert shortly before U.N. arms inspectors returned to Iraq.

Powell demanded that Syria locate and turn over Iraqi weapons scientists and top-ranking Ba'ath Party officials who had been granted sanctuary by Syria once Gulf War II began. ... [end excerpt]

Not-So-Secret Iraqi-Syrian Deals - Posted May 28, 2003

By Kenneth R. Timmerman

http://www.insightmag.com/main.cfm?include=detail&storyid=437030

Middle East analysts will tell you that Syria and Iraq long have been enemies, citing their leaders' rival visions of Ba'ath Party dictatorship. And they were right until Hafez Assad died in June 2000. Almost as soon as son Bashar took power, things began to change.

In November 2000, the younger Assad agreed to reopen a 500-mile oil pipeline, which soon began hauling an estimated 150,000 to 200,000 barrels per day from the Kirkuk oil fields of Iraq to Syria's Mediterranean export terminal at Banias. For Assad and Saddam Hussein, it was a gold mine. The pipeline deal gave Saddam an estimated $1.5 billion to $2 billion per year on the black market, with hefty transit fees going to Assad in the bargain.

Just two months later, on Jan. 31, 2001, the two countries agreed to double their $500 million-per-year trade, and triple it by 2002.

Gary C. Gambill, writing in the Middle East Intelligence Bulletin, reported that Assad had dispatched his younger brother, Maher Assad, to Baghdad on a secret two-day visit shortly before the trade agreement was inked to discuss military cooperation with Qusay Hussein.

Following that visit, agreements were drafted to hide Iraqi weapons of mass destruction in Syria should U.N. inspections resume, and later, when the coalition attack became imminent, to provide sanctuary to fleeing Iraqi leaders.

According to published reports, Syria also served as a conduit for weapons and spare parts that Iraq purchased on the black market in Russia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic and France, in defiance with the U.N. embargo.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon warned in an interview with Israeli television on Dec. 24, 2002, that Iraq already had trucked the bulk of its weapons stockpiles to Syria earlier in the autumn, before the arrival of the U.N. inspectors.

After intense U.S. pressure, Bashar Assad has handed over several key Iraqi weapons scientists and intelligence officers, including Farouk Hijazi, believed to be the key link between Iraq and al-Qaeda. But hundreds of other Iraqis are reported to have escaped through Syria.

For now, Assad appears to be wedded to his lies. When asked by Lally Weymouth of Newsweek about the escaping Iraqis, Assad insisted that once the war began no one was allowed to come. "We allowed families to come to Syria, women and children," Assad said. "But we were suspicious of some of the relatives - that they had positions in the past and were responsible for killings in Syria in the eighties."

Many here on FR consider themselves staunch Republicans, but do not fully trust President Bush. Only the dead-brained blindly follow anyone. Although most of us consider that to be a requirement for instillation into the Democratic Party, there are some here on FR and in the REPUB. party that seem to have that attitude.

The answer to his question is as follows:

Because, President Bush did not lie.

The statements he made are accurate and it is the MEDIA and the DEMOCRATS who are attempting to MISREPRESENT what the President said, to disgrace him.

The statement of OD's that a President may (lie) not tell the truth to the public, is certainly true.

THE FACT is that the statement in question, is being misrepresented.

If one reads the entire statement made, you will see what he said, and that HE DID NOT LIE.

All the sources that tell you the PRESIDENT LIED , are the LIARS. It is a matter of DOCUMENTED PROOF.

“The only American's who are raising hell over the lack of hard evidence…”

You may want to open your eyes and ears. Most Conservatives are smart enough to think for themselves and do not follow lockstep to a party line.

” Bill Clinton also told the American people…”

Somehow this doesn’t offer me much comfort. Clinton is a habitual liar! Are you seriously comparing President Bush to Clinton????

” The fact that hard physical evidence of the whereabouts of Saddam's WMD hasn't been found, at this point, means absolutely nothing…”

It may mean nothing to you but you are in for a big surprise if WMD are not located. You may find it perfectly ok that American lives were lost to free the Iraqi people. Personally, I think that the lives of American soldiers are worth much more than that. The military exists to protect America and American interests – freedom of the Iraqi people (or freedom of the Liberian people) is not enough to sacrifice American lives.

an admirable action – but not worth a single American life, in my opinion.

Here's where we really disagree. We've been over the Middle East (oil) barrel since the establishment of Israel, and especially since the embargo in '73. We've been manipulated by oil-rich Iranian Persians and Muslims in Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq, Iran, etc. for far too long. No matter how you view it, the stand-off between Israel and the Arab world is insoluble by diplomatic means. I've watched administration after American administration skewered and mislead by double-dealing from both sides.

Bush understands the old maxim that "When you have them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow." We now occupy Afghanistan and Iraq. We have powerful military forces next to Pakistan, Iran, Syria and Turkey. Message received? We can decide to allow Caspian (Russian) oil to market by pipeline through Afghanistan or not -- how are you feeling today, Vladimir? Maybe that depends on how your competitors are feeling. It may just be that we've destroyed OPEC.

In the Third Millenium A.D. Realpolitik may have a new meaning.

Why is it so hard to admit that Bush lied about having "proof" of these WMD's?? Politicians lie all the time.

Clinton said the same thing.

So....

”The rest of his country had been taken over by the Al-Queda (and that is just a representative name for a host of terrorist groups, working together).

Sorry but there is just no credible evidence for this and Al-Queda was certainly not the major reason stated for this military effort. I listened (and believed) President Bush when he said that Saddam possessed WMD and that those weapons must be found and destroyed. This is a just and noble cause – the protection of American citizens.

We do TOO know that Iraq was in possession of WMD. Why not ask the Kurds and the Iranians?

We could pull out of Japan or South Korea tomorrow and their type of government would remain in existence. They are strong, capitalistic countries - thanks to us.

When asked by the Phillipines, we left our facilites at Clark AFB and Subic Bay several years ago. They still have a democratic form of government.

The "fat contracts" you refer to are awarded to Bechtel and Halliburton because they are familiar with the middle east AND they are the only companies large enough and capable enough of handling such a huge undertaking.

You might be right about the power we can now exert because of Afghanistan and Iraq. But negotiating any type of agreement to stop the Israeli / Palestinian conflict is a real shot in the dark. Our chances have perhaps improved from none to slim – not enough, for my thinking, to risk American lives (not to mention my tax dollars).

Sir... I have no problem that you are Anti-Bush. I'm just stating that this is a CONSERVATIVE leaning site. It' is not an anti Republican site. Go back from where you came if you wish to cause trouble.

You have a right to your opinions, but calling Bush a LIAR is something most people who hang out here don't do too often.

We call the Clintons LIARS and the Demoncrats LIARS.

>>>You may want to open your eyes and ears. Most Conservatives are smart enough to think for themselves and do not follow lockstep to a party line.

My eyes are wide open. I suggest you take your blinders off. Conservatives continue to stand with PresBush and his support from FReepers here on this conservative website is overwhelming. As I said, this entire deal involving Saddam's WMD programs is being driven by the Democrat's, their cohorts in the mainstream (liberal) media and those fringe rightwingers who hate PresBush.

>>>Somehow this doesn’t offer me much comfort. Clinton is a habitual liar! Are you seriously comparing President Bush to Clinton????

There's no doubt, the intelligence that Clinton used back in the late 1990`s, to warn the American public and the world of Saddam's continuing WMD programs, is basically the same intelligence that PresBush has received and employed to make his decision to finally take out the Iraqi madman and defend American interests.

It may mean nothing to you but you are in for a big surprise if WMD are not located. You may find it perfectly ok that American lives were lost to free the Iraqi people. Personally, I think that the lives of American soldiers are worth much more than that. The military exists to protect America and American interests – freedom of the Iraqi people (or freedom of the Liberian people) is not enough to sacrifice American lives.

Its quite obvious you don't support PresBush and sound more like one of those anti-Bush liberals, or fringe rightwing extremists. So be it.

America is fighting a war on terrorism and PresBush made a decision that taking out Saddam Hussein would be part of that war on terroism. American interests were attacked on 9-11 and I'm damn well proud of the job that PresBush has done in prosecuting this war against the forces of international terrorism. I continue to support the President's efforts to fight this war on Arab soil, over there and not on the American homeland, over here! American's have been dying throughout our history to protect and defend the American people and our interests around the world. I suggest you wake up and get with the program, or move along to a website that can better appreciate your minority viewpoint.

Sorry but there is just no credible evidence for this

Just because the major media outlets do not CRAM THIS DOWN YOUR THROAT everyday, doesn't mean it is not true. Are you aware of how many terrorist organizations there are in the Middle East, the names of them, and the size of their constituents? Are you aware of their inter-relations?

and Al-Queda was certainly not the major reason stated for this military effort.

I guess you forgot about Bin Laden. The media has. But, you are correct, it was not the STATED REASON for this coalition strike.

I listened (and believed) President Bush when he said that Saddam possessed WMD and that those weapons must be found and destroyed. This is a just and noble cause – the protection of American citizens.

So, what are you implying here? That this one statement is what you pin all your trust/belief/hopes on and if that PROOF can't be given to you RIGHT FRICKEN NOW, then the President must be a liar, just like the Democrats say? That what the MEDIA tells you the president stated is what he said? Do you even know what the original statement the President made, in regards to this issue is?

Mr. O'reilly is pretty sharp on several issues, and mind-numbingly obtuse on others - economics, for example. His heart is in the right place though, which is a whole lot more than we can say about some of the folks in his craft. There may well be a method to his madness on this one, however, I dunno. I like to think of him as a "weapon of madness destruction" in general. He articulates on a national forum - on one of the, if not the, top rated cable program - exactly what a whole lot of good people feel in this country, and that ain't all bad.

To be fair, let's admit the truth. Your statement is the foundation of the whole DEMOCRATIC push to embarrass and remove President Bush from office.

They are saying if BUSH doesn't come up with PROOF of WMD's RIGHT NOW, he is a liar.

The LIAR part is the Democrats stating that BUSH stated THEY HAD EM.

The statement in question, does not contain those words.

If you read the statement the President made, you will see he did not state THEY HAD EM.

If you would rather allow statements taken out of context to be truth, and then base whether you follow the liars who take statements out of context, or the person being accused of lying by liars on that basis, then I can see why you made the statement you did.

Good luck with that attitude, by the way.

No, read between the lines. A similar, if opposite, situation ocurred with President Eisenhower during the cold war. His intelligence at the time indicated that the Soviets had nowhere near the missile capability that was publicly believed. Accordingly, he reduced military spending. His loyal opposition, the Democrats knew this as well - but chose to publicly brand the President as "Soft on Communism" - since the real military situation could not be publicly announced. It could be we're seeing something analagous right now - political maneuvering at the expense of overall national security.

No. Everybody knew that Iraq had them and that they were used in the past. They were hidden or destroyed or given to terrorists, in part, to embarrass Bush and Blair and maybe to not reveal any involvement by France, Germany and Russia, if any, IMO. As far as leadership is concerned, we know what Liberals do when they are in control and we must keep them out of power. It's an easy option for me, especially since the outcome was successful and because I think the long term benefits will pay off in many ways.

Bill O'Reilly claims to be an "independent", ho ho ho.

Reminds me of the sizeable clique of snooty State Dept. retirees who live in my Florida community. By rote, they tell one and all that they are "independents". It was rote they utilized for cover during their careers working for State.

However, when I sit in my little corner as a primary election day poll watcher, I see every one of them request a Democrat ballot and march into the Democrat booth, ho ho ho.

News commentators do this also if they even dare to vote at all in the primaries and reveal their true party affiliation. All these chicken shi'ites sure like to hide the fact they're Dem socialists.

Me? I strut into the Republican booth proud as all hell.

Evil can not profit by increased security, by benefits to US citizens, by freedom of human beings to travel the globe and conduct business, by allowing the laws of supply and demand to be the controls of price (specifically oil) instead of forced supply or demand.

Evil can not profit by allowing power to be placed in the hands of the just and moral. (To ID evil, ID the just and moral of our politicians. ID the ones who have power and no morality. SEE WHO IS WHO)

BINGO. At the expense of overall national security, the expense of the life and livelihoods of every American citizen. Any person that believes that people like KENNEDY or HILLARY CLINTON care about them as human being, instead of as a PAWN to be used or killed at the whims of the Aristocracy, needs to wake up. Evil shows itself in actions. Watch their actions.

We also must watch President Bush's actions. Just because we (I) trust him, or believe in what he has done so far, does not mean he is infallible. I can say his actions so far represent morality, responsibility, care and concern for US citizens. I can say EX-never should have been pRESIDENT Clinton's actions were those of EVIL.

He's worth listening to for maybe 5 minutes an hour. Unfortunately you don't know in advance which 5 minutes.

The days of the cozy deals and of winking and nodding at Syrian support for terrorism were ended. He then presented Assad with a list of U.S. demands that was nothing short of breathtaking.

While some of you debate the monkey I see this and am pleased so far. Bout time to read them the riot act and then roll in the tanks if they are not adherred to. Put the fear of God in them.

”RIGHT FRICKEN NOW..”

If you had bothered to read my posts you would know that I don’t expect President Bush to produce the WMD right now – and if you bothered to listen to O’Reilly you would know that he also does not expect the same.

I am more than willing to give the president time to find AND DESTROY the Iraqi WMD. However, if he does not – if he, in effect, lied to the American people, he has little chance for my support. I don’t support politicians, of any persuasion, who lie about matters that affect the lives of our servicemen.

If you think Republicans will support him if WMD are not found, I think you are dreaming (and blindly foolish). Republicans are not that dumb. We are not like Democrats who blindly support any liberal.

I too am very proud of the way he has conducted himself and our foreign policy. I shudder to think what a state we would be in if Gore had won the election. However, I am not stupid. If it is shown, in the future, that Saddam did not have WMD – that he really did not pose a threat to the United States, then I am afraid that President Bush will have lost my respect and I see no chance for him to win a second term.

"I no longer watch the man. He has become very predictable and boring."

Agree. O'Reilly has become a dim version of "Hardcopy".
