Republican Campaigns Set to Sling Mud

By Janet Hook

Hoping to deflect attention from Iraq, candidates unleash the attack ads. Hey – they do get voters’ attention, consultants say.

But the following don’t count as mud slinging even though it was an orchestrated political leak. Gee, see how this plays out:

Democrats Cite Report to Undermine GOP

Democrats Tout Report on Terror Threat

Democrats use intelligence report to attack Republican strategy in Iraq

Democrats Seek Momentum From Iraq Report

Dems Seize on Iraq Report to Attack GOP

Dems Use Intel Report to Attack GOP

Leaked intelligence report rocks Bush election stance

  1. iknow…
    Lemme try: cuz they want to win an election?
    When the Democrats decide that Halliburton and the President of the United States are more dangerous than they guys who attacked us on 9/1l and previous times then I guess they deserve what they get.

  2. I find it funny that so many Dems cry this shows the ineptness of Bush, but once Bush says to decalssify it and show the entire report, Pelosi wants a “Closed Session” to discuss it, on he grounds of “sensitive material.”

    It didn’t seem to “sensitive” for the New York Times to print it.

    Could it be that the rest of this report, the parts the New York Times decided not to make public, leaves Dems with egg on their faces,,,, again?

    The politicization of all this is out of control and counter-productive to any efforts at winning the war on terror.

  3. We’ll soop find out if it is the consensus of 16 intelligence agencies that the war in Iraq has increased the threat of terror and helped produce a new generation of Islamic radicals. If it is not, then the NY Times is a liar. If it is, then the 16 inteligence agencies are liars. Who are you going to believe, Bush, or your lying eyes?

  4. This is the first full N.I.E. since Iraq was invaded. I look forward to its release so as to compare it with Bush’s speeches since April that we are winning the war on terror. If the report shows that the war in Iraq has increased terror, do you think a Republican controlled Congress will hold oversight hearings to investigage. Nooooooooooooo

  5. LOL, and it is Pelosi that wanted it discussed PRIVATELY first?

    I doubt the right has anything to worry about with this full release.

    Ya’ll just keep throwing the sky hooks upwards.

  6. Pelosi wants the “private discussions” so she can gather more info to “leak” to the NYT so they will have a chance to put their ultra-left wing spin on it to further attempt to discredit the Bush administration.

  7. AP 9/25/06
    In the bleak report, released Tuesday on President Bush’s orders, the nation’s most veteran analysts conclude that despite serious damage to the leadership of al-Qaida, the threat from Islamic extremists has spread both in numbers and in geographic reach.

    “If this trend continues, threats to U.S. interests at home and abroad will become more diverse, leading to increasing attacks worldwide,” the document says. “The confluence of shared purpose and dispersed actors will make it harder to find and undermine jihadist groups.”

    Bush ordered a declassified version of the classified report released after several days of criticism sparked by portions that were leaked. Asked about those Tuesday, Bush said critics who believe the Iraq war has worsened terrorism are naive and mistaken.

    The intelligence assessment, completed in April, has stirred a heated election-season argument over the course of U.S. national security in the years following the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

    Bush and his top advisers had said the broad assessment on global terrorism supported their arguments that the world is safer. But more than three pages of stark judgments warning about the spread of terrorism contrasted with the administration’s glass-half-full declarations.

    So we are safer huh????

  8. Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Americans could now decide on the merits of the report, and repeated his party’s criticism that the Iraq war had made Americans less safe and in need of a new direction.

    “Facts are stubborn things,” Dean said in a statement. “Nothing changes the fact that President Bush’s failed leadership and war of choice in Iraq have made us less safe and hampered our ability to fight and win the global war on terror,” he said.

  9. Hey Nimlo, care to wait for the entire report to be out before you critique it?

    “My personal assessment with respect to the United States is that we are certainly more vigilant, we’re better prepared, and in that sense I think we could safely say that we are safer.” John Negroponte

    “We must understand the deep underlying realities there, and more importantly how it is routinely portrayed in Islamic media, continues to cultivate supporters for the global jihadist movement.” General Michael Hayden

    Fizzi, Howard Dean??? YYYEEEEEEAAAHHHH!!!!!!!!
