The Washington Post Deserts Lefty

Liberal bastion of leftist thought, the Washington Post on Sunday ran the following editorial, excerpted here:
  • PRESIDENT BUSH was right to approve the declassification of parts of a National Intelligence Estimate about Iraq three years ago in order to make clear why he had believed that Saddam Hussein was seeking nuclear weapons. Presidents are authorized to declassify sensitive material, and the public benefits when they do. But the administration handled the release clumsily, exposing Mr. Bush to the hyperbolic charges of misconduct and hypocrisy that Democrats are leveling.
  • The material that Mr. Bush ordered declassified established, as have several subsequent investigations, that Mr. Wilson was the one guilty of twisting the truth. In fact, his report supported the conclusion that Iraq had sought uranium.
Gee Lefty, even YOUR newspapers are beginning to abandon the fever swamps of YOUR party. Karl Rove must have made them do it, right? (hat tip to AceofSpades)

Leaks Against Joe Wilson Never "Rebutted" Anything

The White House never tried to rebut Joe Wilson's charges. Quite the opposite.

Right after Wilson's op-ed piece appeared in the Times, Ari Fleischer said "There is zero, nada, nothing new here." The White House National Security Council then followed up, stating "Knowing all that we know now, the reference to Iraq's attempt to acquire uranium from Africa should not have been included in the State of the Union speech."


And then, George Tenet publicly disclosed those parts of the National Intelligence Estimate addressing uranium from Africa. If anything, the NIE seemed to validate Wilson's charges. So Tenet admitted that the famous 16 words, "did not rise to the level of certainty which should be required for Presidential speeches, and CIA should have ensured that it was removed."

So by July 11, 2003, Joe Wilson's allegation -- that the uranium-from-Africa intelligence was always flimsy and was sexed up in the State of the Union address -- was no longer disputed. Meaning Wilson's motivations and veracity were irrelevant.

But thee days later, Robert Novak's column outed Wilson's wife. A week after that, Andrea Mitchell told Joe Wilson, "I heard in the White House that people were touting the Novak column and that that was the real story."

You can't declassify something AFTER the damage is done, just to cover your ass. This is B.S. and Bush II should be called on it!

From world news:

The truth of the matter is that lying is here to stay, and prosper.

The main catalyst and justification for lying is the golden rule of survival: "The end justifies the means", and it often begins at a very tender age.

This initial adventure into the world of the unreal is a spontaneous instinctive parry, designed to thwart a vicious attack by the forces of truth, and is therefore, essentially a defensive maneuver. The art of aggressive lying can lead to untold rewards, perhaps as far reaching as the Presidency of the United States.

We have in the past noted that George W. Bush is a master of this science and we have much to learn from him, as he has pushed his expertise to a level that most people would have thought unattainable.

We sometimes wonder how it can be that people are deprived of their life savings by a slick peddler of fraudulent schemes. Could it not be that some people have literally no moral conscience whatever in their psychological make-up, and therefore do not second-guess themselves on anything at anytime. Could not such people, totally free of self-incrimination, somehow convey the impression of absolute honesty?

We appraise lies by the importance of their effects, and since lying is seldom admitted to, and not always self evident, we learn to bend in the wind of deceit, and stop questioning the truthfulness of most actions and statements, the adroit purveyors of falsehood being once again the overall beneficiaries.

George W. Bush has a simmering hidden agenda, which was fomented in the halls of a covert University group to which he belonged, and whose aim is to perpetuate a wealth based aristocratic class of families, companies and individuals, and he believes that he and his family are central players in this insane comedy. His political programs are being insidiously achieved by favoring the powerful in all ways possible, and at every turn, every opportunity, he has proposed legislation and taken decision with that orientation as a constant. His positions on social security, taxation, immigration, and outsourcing, clearly reflect this intent. A flagrant social fraud and huge lie.

There is nothing like a war to have congress bolster military strength, and George W. Bush had to find one to satisfy the whinings of the hawkish neo-cons and the military establishment. Possibly or at least more than likely, the War in Iraq, the loss of military personnel, the killing of innocent civilians and their children, and a staggering economic burden, was initiated by George W. Bush, due to the U.S. military establishment´s craving for a stronger Defense Industry, and all other given and attributed reasons may be pure smoke screens and speculation. This is a giant among Favorite Lies.

And don't forget about our popular vice president:

A loud mixture of cheers and boos greeted Vice President Dick Cheney on Tuesday as he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Washington Nationals baseball game.

Cheney, wearing a red Nationals warmup jacket, tossed a pitch that reached Nationals catcher Brian Schneider on one bounce.

The vice president, whose popularity is slumping along with that of President Bush, walked out on the field to cheering and booing from the near-sellout crowd. The boos appeared to be little louder than the cheers at RFK Memorial Stadium.

And then he shot the umpire. . by accident of course.
