  • 'False' rating on Trump Iraq stance should be at least 'half true'

    Question: Did Donald Trump oppose or support the Iraq War? Before answering, a quick note on why providing clarity around a relatively simple question: It's rare that cooler heads can prevail in this media world we live in. Lines in the sand have never been drawn between blue and red media as vividly as they are now. And as a result, simple logic and lucidity is supplied less and less to drawing a verdict on whether a story is true or not. Exhibit A today is the aforementioned question: Did Trump — as he insists — oppose the Iraq War?...

    ...he was for amnesty before he was against it... [snip] ...from the No. 1 defender of deportation. At the end of June, speaking to the press in Chicago and after saying he "heard you probably have 30 million" illegal aliens in America, Trump contended: "You have to give them a path, and you have to make it possible for them to succeed. You have to do that. But the bad ones, and there are bad ones, you have to get out, and you have to get them out fast." [snip] ...Trump, interviewed by Newsmax's Ron Kessler, blasted Mitt Romney's "crazy...
  • Why We Stuck With Maliki -- And Lost Iraq [Important read!!]

    <p>"The crisis now gripping Iraq and the Middle East was not only predictable but predicted — and preventable. By looking the other way and unconditionally supporting and arming Maliki, President Obama has only lengthened and expanded the conflict that President Bush unwisely initiated. Iraq is now a failed state, and as countries across the Middle East fracture along ethno-sectarian lines, America is likely to emerge as one of the biggest losers of the new Sunni-Shiite holy war, with allies collapsing and radicals plotting another 9/11."</p>
  • HIllary won't be the only one knifing Obama in the back over Bergdahl

    It's not just Madame Hillary, either. Senator Dianne Feinstein, chair of the Intelligence Committee, also turned on Obama - she said he was "totally not following the law!" - and was immediately attacked by Harry Reid this morning. Obama's gambit to distract America from the VA scandal is turning into the most devastating scandal of his crime-riddled presidency, its mega-tonnage amplified by the way it's causing Democrats to turn on each other. I think we'll see more of that over the next couple of days, as the implosion effect of this nuclear scandal blast sucks Obama's party into a blue-on-blue...
  • Creigh Deeds Explains His Position on Tax Hikes With Kerryesque Clarity

    I can't believe this guy might be my next governor. Creigh Deeds, explaining his position on taxes, says at one point, "I'm not going to raise taxes, but I'm going to sign a transportation plan that raises new revenue." Then in the post-debate press conference, he says, within milliseconds of each other, "I have no plans to raise taxes" followed by "everything is on the table." Somewhere, John Kerry is watching this and saying, "See? It's not just me!"
  • No More 'Surge' Protection? Now Oliver North Comes Out Against Iraq Plan

    Bob Herbert and our own Joe Galloway, you'd expect -- even, by this point, Thomas Friedman -- but Oliver North? But it happened, in the hawkish Fox News contributor's new syndicated column, where he came out against President Bush's reported plan to escalate the number of U.S. troops in Iraq. North recalls that on his recent return to Iraq, "Not one of the soldiers, sailors, airmen, Guardsmen or Marines I interviewed told me that they wanted more U.S. boots on the ground. In fact, nearly all expressed just the opposite: 'We don't need more American troops, we need more Iraqi...
