Rice claims U.S. credit for Mideast reforms

The article headline is only the beginning. Let's disect this a little shall we?

By Saul Hudson

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Tuesday the United States could take credit for an improvement in political freedoms in the Middle East after Washington made promoting democracy a priority this year.

While she acknowledged there were other factors (?), Rice said the U.S. campaign had generally increased the chances for reforms and, in the cases of elections in Lebanon and the Palestinian territories, had directly stimulated change.

The overall sense that this is a region that is now unlocking in terms of democratic reform ... is in part attributable to U.S. policy," she told reporters as she flew to Brussels following a tour of the Middle East, where she prodded Saudi Arabia and Egypt to expand political freedoms."

(BUT.... Mr. Hudson continues....Here comes the famous Reuters Bias Alert)

"In a policy shift that has evolved after militants attacked America on September 11, 2001, President Bush has pledged to make democracy central to bilateral relations in the belief that U.S. interests are best served if freedoms spread."

(No, Mr. Hudson TERRORISTS; MURDERERS is more appropriate! Militants my ass....)

The drool continues..

"But Washington's different standards for its allies and foes weaken American credibility in a region already skeptical of any U.S. moral authority because of, among other things, the abuse of Iraqi detainees, political analysts say."

(What political analysts? Kofi Annan? Kim Jong II?, MSNBC?

Differing standards for allies and foes? You're damn right. Peace and prosperity for our allies, serious ass-kicking for our foes - got that Mr. Hudson?)

Sheesh!

The point that these doofs miss is this:

The Bush Doctrine as I've said before is being unfolded before our eyes, going where others have failed. A seed of democrasy planted in Iraq and growth - while slow - will occur. In that post I wondered if the MSM was finally beginning to "get it". I believe they do, but they don't like it - not one bit. It would sound like the last thing the MSM wants is a "Peaceful Middle East". Where is the "news" in that?

Harsh? Yeah, but what do they want us to believe by their incessant negative coverage than to leave us with no other choice than to think they truly WANT the doctrine to fail. Too bad they're wrong!

The truth is that the plan IS working, and years from now we will see the fruits in ways we cannot imagine now.

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.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
