The party of [Dim]ocrats have themselves quite a problem on their hands.
Everyone from Rep[rehensible] Murtha to John “Timeline” Kerry and their like-minded associates have painted themselves into a corner by advocating timelines and “redeployments” from Iraq “to Okinawa.”
With the unauthorized and illegal leak of yet another classified document, and subsquent publication by the NYT of the NIE, they thought they had the Eviiiil Bushies again. Had’em already sitting on the horse, whip in hand, ready to lash the hindquarters of said steed and watch Bush fall to his quick death.
Headlines blared across the U.S. and within a a couple hours spanned the globe: “Bush’s Iraq war has doomed us all, and has spawned more terrorists than can be counted.”
All based on a couple, and very selective paragraphs, it should be noted.
But alas, it wasn’t to be. Bush countered the parade of leftist appeasement monkeys making the talk show rounds with a declassification of other and more pertinent sections of the NIE document.
Such as this one:
We assess that the Iraq jihad is shaping a new generation of terrorist leaders and operatives; perceived jihadist success there would inspire more fighters to continue the struggle elsewhere.
Does that sound like pulling out without completely finishing the job thus giving the jihadist-cut-throats cause to celebrate their “success” might just be a bad idea?
I thought so to. I also see the corner the [Dim]ocrats are standing in. It has fresh paint surrounding them. (a pale grayed pink-lilac color otherwise known as Mauve. Yeeech!)
Here, let me get out my paint brush again:
The jihadists greatest vulnerability is that their ultimate political solution an ultra-conservative interpretation of shari’a based governance spanning the Muslim world is unpopular with the vast majority of Muslims. Exposing the religious and political straitjacket that is implied by the jihadists propaganda would help to divide them from the audiences they seek to persuade.
Hmmm… where have I heard that before? Oh, yea it was part of the Bush plan to rid Iraq of Saddam and offer an example of what could be in the Middle East as opposed to rampant corruption, authoritarian governments, and little to no freedom of the press.
So, I pose the question again, how will the Democrats spin an Iraqi pullout now? They can scream and moan about more jihadists being produced and as soon as they do the above quotes from the same document they cite will be tossed in their collective faces.
UPDATE: So what do these idiot dimbulbs do? With douche-bag Nancy Pelosi leading the charge some of them are bleating about Bush “selectively releasing” portions of the NIE report that support the presidents policy in Iraq and the Middle East.
Wonder what she calls the two or three paragraphs that were leaked (out of 30 pages) by some despicable little bastard to further their political agenda? Besides “patriot” I mean, at least her definition of one.
