about that iran report...#1
Posted: 12/6/07 at 7:34am
while some folks are content to revel in the illusion that the heads of 16 intelligence agencies got together and developed a report with absolutely no white house involvement (i know, you have visions of them cackling together in a dark room, "oh boy will this show that darn dubya!"), back in the real world it just ain't possible, folks. that kind of coordination doesn't happen without the white house being involved. it is humorous to watch the white house linked directly to everything that happens anywhere in the world exceept this.

the reality is, a deal's been struck with iran and this is step one of the roll-out.

no one bothered to note that this comes curiously close to - like on the day of - the mid-east peace talks that just started in annapolis.

it comes after the israelis showed just how serious we and they are about a non-nuclear gulf with their little visit to syria.

clearly the aggressive talk continued after 2003 because we were pressing for a deal which only now has been brokered.

it is curious to note that they stopped in 2003 right after we sent 150,000 troops to became their neighbors.

so, dubya will go down in history as the man who kept iran from getting the bomb and who took out saddam hussein and with the iranians are on board to throttle hezbollah...peace between the palestinians and the israelis? oh it's legacy time.

so go ahead, start the impeachment process, crow about poor dumb george, rail about the neo-cons (who woke up the other morning and realized they had been frozen out). i'll be over here giggling and sipping a single malt.

So you're saying "best president ever"?

Stop sipping single-malt scotches at 7:30 in the morning.

Wake up and smell the Starbuck's.

Former US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told Fox News that the White House was "taken aback" by the new NIE report's conclusions.

"I think they were floored by it, since it's inconsistent with what the intelligence community was telling them as recently as a week ago," he said. "In fact, members of the House and Senate were briefed on this last week, and there was no mention of the suspension point. So, I think there are some questions that need to be raised about how this thing was put together and what its conclusions are."

Papa--yer blowing smoke up the president's ass. Bush, Cheney and the Neocons were blindsided by the NIE. Cheney tried to squash it, and they've sent out the Neo's to swiftboat it.

Stormin' Norman Podhoretz even said yesterday "I entertain an even darker suspicion. It is that the intelligence community, which has for some years now been leaking material calculated to undermine George W. Bush, is doing it again."

no, pj, this was sayanora to the neo-cons. look at the timing. no way was it developed in secrecy. across 16 agencies? in the leakiest administration this side of the titanic? there'll be no "we have a deal with iran" moment, but mark my words: the world is going to look very, very diferent in about six months and it won't be the gop that's hyping the iran threat.

now say it with me, "president huckabee."

and yes, different for the better.

I'm not saying it was secret--Cheney tried to squelch it.

And Bush couldn't read it--there were too many big words.

Huckabee is soft on rapists and murders--it'll be President Willie Horton before it's President Hock-a-reprieve.

of course cheney tried to squelch it. he's the devil, it's pretty much required of him.

laura read it to george at bedtime.

willie horton wasn't what killed dukakis, it was his answer in the debate about his family, the silly pic of him in that helmet and the fact that he was a three foot tall massachussetts liberal with a head the size of a pinata (not that any of the people who voted against him knew what a pinata was, but by god it sounded pretty doggone un-american!) and the charisma of calvin coolidge on thorazine.

ya better be careful about what ya say about huck. he's got a vindictive streak that makes nixon look like ghandi.

No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Review of Iran Intelligence to Be Sought
As Conservatives Reject New NIE, Republican Senators to Urge Congressional Panel

By Robin Wright and Glenn Kessler
Washington Post Staff Writers
Friday, December 7, 2007; Page A09

Senate Republicans are planning to call for a congressional commission to investigate the conclusions of the new National Intelligence Estimate on Iran as well as the specific intelligence that went into it, according to congressional sources.

The move is the first official challenge, but it comes amid growing backlash from conservatives and neoconservatives unhappy about the assessment that Iran halted a clandestine nuclear weapons program four years ago. It reflects how quickly the NIE has become politicized, with critics even going after the analysts who wrote it, and shows a split among Republicans.
