MSN in a FUNK! - 58% of Americans Agree: Keep Gitmo Open!

Poll shows Americans 'generally in a funk'

New Gallup Poll Numbers - not as bad as MSM would have you believe. Of particular:

"Fifty-eight percent say the United States should continue to operate the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and 52% approve of the way the United States is treating prisoners there. So much for "calls to close Gitmo!!"

USA Today writers Richard Benedetto and Judy Keen, can't let that good news stand by itself....they continue (comments mine):

"Critics (yeah - usually cast of malcontents) have increasingly called for its closure; former president Bill Clinton (Ok, here we go...) told the Financial Times of London that the prison should be shut down or cleaned up."

Yeah, and Bill should be IN it! But that's another story.

Continuing...

"At a news conference with European Union leaders Monday, Bush said the United States has been handling Guantanamo prisoners humanely, even though many of them are "dangerous people." He invited American and foreign news reporters to visit the facility.

"I have an obligation, as do all of us who are holding office, to protect our people," Bush said. "And I believe we're meeting that obligation in a humane way."

Bush also showed no sign of backing down from his policies on Iraq, pledging to fight on against the "cold-blooded killers," he said are murdering innocent civilians and trying to drive the United States out of Iraq. "We're making progress toward the goal, which is ... a political process moving forward in Iraq and ... the Iraqis capable of defending themselves," he said. "We will complete this mission for the sake of world peace."

Bush's job approval rating is at 47%. It's been at 50% or lower for the past three months.

Democratic strategist Jim Duffy (WHO GIVES A DINK WHAT HE THINKS) says much of the public unease with Bush and his policies stems from Iraq."

MSM - "We write and decide what you NEED to know!"

sheeesh!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Monday Morning Intelligence with Kool Aid and the NY Times - UPDATE

Followup to previous post.

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
