SHAME ON THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THEIR HANDMAIDENS AT THE WASHINGTON POST AND THE LA TIMES.

Read the NIE for yourself here .
I’ve read it and if I were you I’d cancel my NYT subscription. This is wilful cognitive dissonance. There’s nothing that says we did the wrong thing in Iraq and EVERYTHING to say that the idea behind going into Iraq is absolutely right on and that there’s no way we can lose this because so much hinges on it.

SHAME ON THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THEIR HANDMAIDENS AT THE WASHINGTON POST AND THE LA TIMES.

Here’s analysis here and here and here.

Andy McCarthy highlights the fatwa issued in 1998 by UBL. Gads, no mention of GW. Well…give them time, they’ll manufacture one. But look they mention Clinton. Imagine it, Clinton did relatively little and he was mentioned in a Fatwa. Why do they hate him so much? Turns out: there’s no reason.
McCarthy:
Jihadists hate us because they hate us, not because of Iraq. If President Clinton’s Iraq policy was a problem, it was only because he didn’t follow through on it. By threatening to act forcefully but then letting Saddam Hussein and his terror-mongering fester, Clinton played right into al Qaeda’s conviction that America did not have the stomach for a fight and could be attacked with impunity — a conviction that was reinforced when terror attacks were in fact met with paltry, or no, response.

And remember this post of mine. This is why we can’t cut and run.
Here’s the essential ‘graph:

From the Blog last spring:

In the opinion section of the Wall Street Journal today is an interesting piece about what Iran’s version of Dr. Kissinger, Hassan Abbasi, thinks about American will. Find it here.Here’s the essential ‘graph:To hear Mr. Abbasi tell it the entire recent history of the U.S. could be narrated with the help of the image of “the last helicopter.” It was that image in Saigon that concluded the Vietnam War under Gerald Ford. Jimmy Carter had five helicopters fleeing from the Iranian desert, leaving behind the charred corpses of eight American soldiers. Under Ronald Reagan the helicopters carried the corpses of 241 Marines murdered in their sleep in a Hezbollah suicide attack. Under the first President Bush, the helicopter flew from Safwan, in southern Iraq, with Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf aboard, leaving behind Saddam Hussein’s generals, who could not believe why they had been allowed live to fight their domestic foes, and America, another day. Bill Clinton’s helicopter was a Black Hawk, downed in Mogadishu and delivering 16 American soldiers into the hands of a murderous crowd.
Here’s something you might find interesting; they all (Iran, Al Qaeda) think GW is an aberration and believe the old cut and run strategy will resume once G-4-3 is gone. The author continues in the piece about his research finding among other things that the American leader-elite don’t
support a cut and run strategy. He believes 9/11 changed everything and everyone. Do YOU?
