An article in the New York Times last weekend – ‘Spy agencies say Iraq War Worsens Terrorism Threat’, claims to summarize the details of the classified National Intelligence estimate – that’s the subject of today’s Talking Points memo.
Times reporter Mike Mosettie proudly states: “More than a dozen United States government officials, and outside experts were interviewed – all spoke unconditionally under anonymity because they were discussing a classified intelligence document.
Bottom line: Supposedly because of this classified report is – George Bush created terrorism.
Quote: “American invasion and occupation of Iraq has helped spawn a new generation of Islamic radicalism. Islamic radicalism, in rather than being in retreat, has metastasized and spread across the globe”. (panting in excitement)
As if it was not already a global threat! News Flash New York Times: Islamic terrorists were operating in at least 70 countries before 9/11!
The Times latest leak of a partial report by ‘unnamed officials’ with an anti-Bush agenda, conveniently supports a Democrat kook belief that terrorism is Bush’s fault.
The Times also wants to muddy the Presidents undisputed record of taking out key elements of al Qaeda.
Now, unlike his predecessor, President Bush isn’t going on Fox News and going unglued – blaming his political enemies for not doing enough.
America hasn’t been hit since Bush took the fight to the terrorists. (How many times were we hit during Clinton – and what did he do about each one? Ummmm?) Despite all the National Security leaks that have hampered our ability to fight terrorists.
The leaks expose the real danger. We got partisans more interested in playing politics than in defeating terrorists in our intelligence community.
And the drive-by-media and the Democratic party, all too well to assist them.
And that’s the memo
