Make NO mistake, there would be a substantial penalty for early withdraw

Fox News: "An influential House Democrat who voted for the Iraq war called Thursday for the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, another sign of growing unease in Congress about the conflict. "It is time for a change in direction," said Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., one of Congress' most hawkish Democrats. "Our military is suffering, the future of our country is at risk. We cannot continue on the present course. It is evident that continued military action in Iraq is not in the best interests of the United States of America, the Iraqi people or the Persian Gulf region."

Really?

"Our military is suffering". How about asking those that are there "Mr influential?" By the way, you can find more pics like the one on the left here. They were taken by those who know what it's like and what they are there for.

The MSM is playing this up as a BIG BREAK, but it's really the same position Murtha's had for over a year now. So much for "breaking news".

More seem to be joining the premature party, but in essense they are the same dead weights as usual - what else is new.

They all ought to read Senator McCain's take on an early pull out and how devastating that would actually be. I'm not, as you know, a McCain fan, but he nailed this issue dead center.

Good thing we have a President who isn't going to abandon the Iraqis like the Left of the 70s abandoned the people of South Vietnam and left them to be slaughtered by Pol Pot. Not this time - we stay until the job is finished.

UPDATE: Senator Flip/Flop One speaks: “I won’t stand for the swift-boating of Jack Murtha,” Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, responded Friday. Also a Vietnam veteran, Kerry was dogged during the campaign by a group called the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth that challenged his war record.

“There is no sterner stuff than the backbone and courage that defines Jack Murtha’s character and conscience,” Kerry said."

Zzzzzzzz.......


Hey doof, no one's questoning his "patriotism" (what is with Democrats and this insecurity about patriotism? Cripes get a teddy bear or something!). We're questioning his motives (was that Ms Pelosi with him?) and especially his memory as he said the same thing in 2004.

I don't care how many medal you have on your chest, if you're wrong, you're wrong, and Murtha is dead wrong about Iraq. He has a right to say what he said, and damn it we've got a right to call his butt on it! So stuff it Lurch!

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…
