AARLC demands The Congressional Democrats release their voting records on intelligence funding.
African-American Republican Leadership Council Press Release ^ | 19 May 2002 | Trueblackman

Posted on 05/19/2002 9:24:45 PM PDT by Trueblackman

Immediate Media Release May 20, 2002

AARLC Headquarters Ronald Reagan Building 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Suite 700 Washington, District of Columbia 20005 Contact Person: Kevin L. Martin Govt.& Political Affairs Director 202-675-8338

African American Republican Leadership Council demands that Congressional Democrats release their voting records on intelligence funding for the last decade.

The African American Republican Leadership Council demands that Congressional Democrats release their voting records on intelligence funding for the last decade to see if a lack of proper funding contributed in not averting the 9-11 attacks on the United States. Further, that a congressional hearing be convened to determine what President Clinton knew about potential threats against the United States from UBL and his murderers and why he refused to apprehend UBL when Sudan and others begged him to take UBL him off their hands.

Congressional Democrats have sought to play election year party politics after CBS News released a leaked classified intelligence report on which President Bush was allegedly briefed on a plot by Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda Network to hijack civilian airlines. Congressional Democrats like Senator Hillary Clinton are now demanding that President Bush answer their purely political questions and want to hold congressional investigations.

The media has reported that the classified intelligence report in question was received from an overseas intelligence agency in the summer of 2001. AARLC believes the American Public has a right to know if a lack of funding over the last decade led to various U.S. Intelligence Agencies being ill prepared to adequately handle homeland security in averting 9-11.

AARLC would like to remind the American Public that these ranting Democrats today, who are now demanding answers, were some of the same leftist liberals that voted against funding for these intelligence agencies in the early 1990’s with baseless stories such as the CIA supposedly dumping illegal drugs from Central America in the City of Los Angeles.

Congressional Democrats seem to only want to limit their purely partisan investigations to the events surrounding 9-11. AARLC believes that any true investigation must include former President Clinton as well as Sandy Burger, Louie Freeh, Janet Reno, and Al Gore, since al-Qaeda did carry out attacks on The World Trade Center, Embassies in Africa, a military barrack in Saudi Arabia and The U.S.S. Cole during the tenure of President Clinton.

AARLC wants to know did a lack of funding in the 1990s to these intelligence agencies make it impossible to obtain first hand knowledge of the inner workings of terrorist groups like al-Qaeda since their previous attacks seem to catch President Clinton and Democrat operatives off guard each time. The real warning that intelligence agencies where lacking proper funding was all too clear when American Officials where caught off guard once again when both India and Pakistan conducted tit for tat underground nuclear testing in 1999.

AARLC believes that any congressional investigation must be bi-partisan and that Senator Hillary Clinton has a constitutional duty to remove herself from any such investigation to which her husband is a part, as such would be in conflict with her oath of office and her allegiance to Former President Clinton.

Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle has a leadership responsibility to see that any investigation into these terrorist attacks remains bi-partisan and free of influence from those who would seek to protect former President Clinton’s Failed Legacy of protecting the American People from such attack as 9-11 when he refused to apprehend UBL.

AARLC also demands that Congressional Democrat Leaders release all Democrat Votes on intelligence funding over the last decade to answer any key questions the public has about these matters.

AARLC stands firmly with President Bush in the American’s ongoing war against terrorism and calls on Democrats to stop using the blood of those who died in the terrorist attacks of 9-11 as an election year issue.

Look at funding levels. But also look at policy changes.

Just listened to an ex-FBI agent describe how policy in DC got so out of hand, that unless the agent could hand-in an indictment (or near) DC wasn't interested in investigating further. (Hmmmm - how could Bubba have benefited from that??)

At the CIA, agents were pulled from contacting virtually anybody less than counselor/embassy level. (Hmmmm - how could Bubba have benefited from that??)

This post from the lovey and gracious Hillary's Lovely Legs would be a good place to start:

A List of the Democrat Morons who are blasting Bush and how they voted for Intelligence Budget Cuts

By the way, I e-mailed a link to HLL's post to Rush@eibnet.com. I believe he'll be interested, and told him he ought to give some props to his friends at FR.

Nice job on going after Democratic voting records for Intelligence Funding.

Other "news" items that aren't being investigated include WHY it took 38 years to bring the registered Democratic Party bomber of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham to trial, as well as WHY no one is prosecuting the Democrats responsible for the infamous Tuskeegee "Experiment" that lasted into the 1970's.

Thank you, thank you so much for this demand - we need to make the democrats accountable for their actions over the last 10 years.

However, these are public records, and are already available. All we have to do is publish them - and the sooner the better!!

Yes, the President has them by the throat and it's nice to see them flopping around trying to extricate themselves from their own doings.

Hang on Mr. President, help is on the way! 2002 ought to be a good time to clean house and senate! Get a safe majority and watch the world become a safer place.

However, these are public records, and are already available.

That's what I thought. All it takes is someone digging through old records and compiling lists of votes.

So, quite frankly, this appears to be political propaganda on the part of the AARLC. By issuing a press release "demanding" that Congressional Democrats release their voting records, the AARLC is falsely implying that the Dems are trying to keep that information secret and hide it from the public. Whereas the truth is that the AARLC is just too lazy to do the grunt work of collecting the information themselves and publishing it.

So this press release is merely a run-of-the-mill example of political innuendo and mud-slinging. And the AARLC is staking out the same low moral ground as the Democrats.
