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.

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…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
