From the mouth of Babes - so long as they aren't Republicans

The left decrys "Why" in Iraq....

Per Michelle Malkin, a teen responds.

It will be interesting to see if the MSM treats this teen as shabbly as they are treating 16-year-old Farris Hassan of Fort Lauderdale (local boy), the high school student who snuck off to Iraq to practice "immersion journalism":

"He said he wrote half the essay while in the United States, half in Kuwait, and e-mailed it to his teachers Dec. 15 while in the Kuwait City airport.

“There is a struggle in Iraq between good and evil, between those striving for freedom and liberty and those striving for death and destruction,” he wrote.

“Those terrorists are not human but pure evil. For their goals to be thwarted, decent individuals must answer justice’s call for help. Unfortunately, altruism is always in short supply. Not enough are willing to set aside the material ambitions of this transient world, put morality first, and risk their lives for the cause of humanity. So I will.”

“I want to experience during my Christmas the same hardships ordinary Iraqis experience everyday, so that I may better empathize with their distress,” he wrote."


This of course was yesterday. Today news accounts tell us that:

"He is a member of a Republican Party club at school."

Useless information as far as the story goes and no doubt included to 'explain' his pro-war/Iraqi freedom views.

Views incidently which are fowned upon for a kid going to a private school in heavily democratic Broward County Florida to have:

Thus:

"When school officials learned of Hassan’s’ trip, they threatened to expel him, but Atiya and Hassan’s father, Redha Hassan, a physician, persuaded officials to allow him to remain, Atiya said. It was not immediately clear why they wanted to expel him."

This additional information from the AP:

"Minutes after Medhi Hassan was interviewed by Diane Sawyer, he watched a CNN report in which two of the journalists his brother met in Baghdad described the teen as "blissfully ignorant."

Yeah....

One would have to wonder if he went with a Cindy Sheehan type of attitude?

UPDATE: Just in case you've missed it, courtesy of MSNBC has a blog called, "Blogging Bagdad: The untold story. Better DNC talking points on the war you won't find. Not suprising they too think Hassan is just a 'misinformed' and 'misguided' little boy. Read the postings and have a chuckle on me.

For me once was enough. Fact is, the story HAS BEEN told from a slew of bloggers that have been in Iraq since the beginning. So no thanks MSNBC. Personally, if I want to know what is really going on on the ground (and the Satellite phone is on the fritz), I frequent Michael Yon. Best damn Iraq war reporting - period!

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…
