No Mr. Russert - Britain isn't Spain

Will London now follow Madrid on Iraq war?

MSNBC: The group claiming responsibility has said this is punishment for Britain's involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq. What's the backlash going to be, considering there was already enormous opposition to the war in Iraq among people in Great Britain?

Tim Russert: This is a key question. Remember what happened to Madrid in 2004. The voters of Spain changed governments and withdrew from participation in Iraq. Tony Blair's challenge is the same as George W. Bush's: to try to convince the people of their country that this would happen even more times but for the involvement in Iraq. Link Iraq to the war on terror and suggest that this is part of what they are confronting as a war president and prime minister."

Typical of the MSM to turn a tragedy into a political statement. I knew it was only a matter of time before some idiot in the MSM would make this stupid comparison between Spain's cowardice under fire, and a possible Britain pull out of troops from Iraq.

Mr. Russert needs to talk with people of London today. They've learned a hard lesson. It isn't the appeasement of cowards that will stop terrorists from murdering innocents, they will attack regardless.

Spain pulled it's 1200 or so troops because of a "Political" advantage - winning an election. Tony Blair, like President Bush, has consistently bucked the polls in his country, and despite this, won Britain's election because deep in the heart of every Briton, they know there is right now nobody better at the helm.

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…
