Don't Confuse Me With Facts, I've Gotta Get This Propaganda Out

Reported by Melanie - September 25, 2006 -

There's a whole lot of outrage, yes OUTRAGE! goin' on at Fox News today (September 25, 2006) over the story published in the NY Times and Washington Post that says 16 Bush administration intelligence agencies have concluded that the Iraq War Worsens Terrorism Threat. Thing is, the outrage isn't about the content of the report, or about concern for our troops, or our safety here at home, it's about the Democrats who leaked it (on Fox there's no question Democrats are behind this) and the way Democrats are using it for "political hay" six weeks before the midterm elections.

A segment on Your World w/Cavuto said it all. Congressman J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) was Neil Cavuto's guest. Cavuto introduced Hayworth by noting that he was "outraged, not at the report, but at the leak of the report." Hayworth said the "political battles here at home are really taking precedence over the real life war our men and women are fighting. This leak, coordinated by a frustrated bureaucrat -- I've just go to name it, quite frankly, probably a Democrat -- has everything to do with the midterm election coming up in six weeks and much less to do with thoughtful criticism and a vision of what we should be doing as we fight Islamofascism." He said while, "thoughtful criticism is always welcome, political posturing and cheap shots are not."

Meanwhile, Cavuto couldn't have expressed the neocon position any more clearly: "We can argue what was behind the release of that and the fact that this doesn't paint the Iraq war in a good light, but that's neither hear nor there..."

Comment: That's right. Cavuto (the alleged "news" anchor), Hayworth and their ilk are themselves so obsessed with political posturing, cheap shots, and making political hay that the safety of our troops, the tens of thousands of dead Iraqis, the $11 million per hour we're spending there, and our homeland security are "neither near nor there."
