    Nancy Soderberg, a former Ambassador to the United Nations and Foreign Policy Advisor under the Clinton administration, repeated the often-heard myth that President Clinton prevented Millennium attacks on the United States. Soderberg made the debunked claim as a guest on tonight's episode of The O'Reilly Factor (Thursday, February 9, 2006).Soderberg's claim would refer to the arrest of terrorist Ahmed Ressam at the U.S-Canada border on December 14, 1999. It was later learned that Ressam planned to bomb Los Angeles International Airport on or around New Year's Day 2000. Clinton defenders have often falsely cited this incident as evidence that...

    Dennis Prager show | 4-13-05 | dfu
    Nationally syndicated talkshow host Dennis Prager interviewed Nancy Soderberg on his show today. She was No. 3 at the NSC in the Clinton administration and is the author of THE SUPERPOWER MYTH: THE USE AND MISUSE OF AMERICAN MIGHT. Where do I begin? She was so misguided, disingenuous, arrogant, and foolish, that I almost had to pull over the DFU mobile to vomit. Among the highlights: - she is proud of the agreement they made with North Korea - she claims that the Iraq war was wrong because Saddam Hussein was not an imminent threat (I was screaming at that...

    Until recently, Nancy Soderberg was just another blissfully forgotten face of the Clinton administration, a onetime No. 3 at the National Security Council now biding her days at a think tank. But she gained some notoriety this month during an appearance on "The Daily Show," in which host Jon Stewart was half-marveling, half-despairing at the turn of events in the Middle East after the Iraq elections, which seemed to vindicate President Bush. Stewart: "He is going to be great. . . . Like, my kid's gonna go to a high school named after him, I just know it." Soderberg: "Well,...

    Freedom may be on the march, but America is still vulnerable to attack. Thursday, March 10, 2005 12:01 a.m. There are two predominant journalistic memes since the Arab spring began. The first, from the left: What if Bush was right? This was most famously and appropriately grappled with on Comedy Central, when Democratic foreign-policy thinker Nancy Soderberg consoled Jon Stewart with the hopefully facetious, but either way revealing, advice to hang on, things can still turn bad with North Korea or Iran. The other, from the middle and the right: As I wrote in this space two years ago, the...

    Liberal Lunacy ^ | 3/7/2005 | Beckwith
    Nancy Soderberg, a Clinton aide and senior foreign policy advisor to Senator Edward M. Kennedy, recently appeared on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and exposed, in the clearest of terms, what Democrats are thinking. Soderberg, who was promoting her book, "The Superpower Myth: The Use and Misuse of American Might", was describing the premise of her book by saying, "What I argue is that the Bush administration fell hostage to the superpower myth, believing that because we're the most powerful nation on earth, we were all-powerful, could bend the world to our will and not have...

We hardly ever watch Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," but our TV happened to be tuned to it last night when erstwhile Clinton aide Nancy Soderberg, author of "The Superpower Myth: The Use and Misuse of American Might" (foreword by Bill Clinton, blurb by Madeleine Albright) came on. We're not sure what possessed us to turn on the sound and watch, but we're glad we did, for it was a fascinating interview. Here's a TiVo-assisted transcript of most...

    A senior Clinton administration national security official offered a stunning admission this week, confessing during a national television interview that Democrats are secretly rooting for the Bush administration's war of terrorism to fail. In comments largely overlooked by the mainstream press, former Clinton National Security Council member Nancy Soderberg discussed the recent outbreak of democracy in the Middle East with "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart. "As a Democrat, you don't want anything nice to happen to the Republicans, and you don't want them to have progress," Soderberg observed, before quickly adding, "But as an American, you hope good things would...

    The Democratic dominoes clearly are beginning to fall when Jon Stewart, the host of "The Daily Show," says, "I haven't seen results like this ever in [the Middle East]." As anyone who watches the Comedy Central "news" show knows, Mr. Stewart isn't a serious political pundit, but he is unabashedly liberal both on and off air. And since he commands a fairly large audience of mostly younger adults, he is perhaps as much an indicator of the liberal mindset as the New York Times. His comments came during a Tuesday night interview with former Clinton aide Nancy Soderberg, who was...

    Thank you very much because I saw that late last night and encourage people to actually look at the tape of the show and what the context of what that is. This is a comedy show. We were joking about the dilemma of Jon Stewart having criticized the Bush administration over the last 4 years. What does he do now. And we were joking back and forth. Um, I think anyone who follows the Democratic party knows that they want America to succeed and the President Bush to succeed. Um, it 's a completely a.. a... a ... mixed conte.......

    March 02, 2005 The Left's Struggle With Freedom In The Middle-East James Taranto of Best of the Web noted an incredible exchange Jon Stewart, who's adored on the left, and former Clinton aide Nancy Soderberg. The reason I call in an "incredible exchange" is not just because Stewart seems be grasping and acknowledging the shockwave of freedom that Bush got started in Iraq, but because Soderberg is so forthright in admitting that she hopes that freedom fails in these countries because it'll be good for the Democrats politically (Emphasis mine)... "Stewart: This book--it talks about the superpower myth of the...
