Soldier Sets Lauer Straight

I've been saying for a long time now, that it is the media that is fueling the national since of negativity in Iraq. If ANY negative thing in our society or world was the lead story of every media outlet every day and night, the people would believe about that thing like they do about Iraq now. We are winning in Iraq and we are going to finish what we started. A U.S. soldier made that point brilliantly:

Lauer: What would you say to those people who are doubtful that morale could be that high?

Soldier: Well sir, I'd tell you, if I got my news from the newspapers also I'd be pretty depressed as well!...For those of us who have actually had a chance to get out and meet the Iraqi Army and Iraqi police and go on patrols with them, we are very satisfied with the way things are going here and we are confident that if we are allowed to finish the job we started we'll be very proud of it and our country will be proud of us for doing it!

I encourage you to watch the video here. It is awesome.

Clinton Rebutted

Here is a New York Times article that proves that Bill Clinton's recent statements (see previous post) were totally false. Look, I don't think anyone should shoulder the full blame for 9-11 other than the terrorists. Clinton and Bush both should have done more, but hindsight is 20/20. I think we should focus on preventing another attack rather then blaming past administrations. Clinton, however, opens himself up to attack when he erroneously claims that he would have done something if he new Bin Laden attacked the Cole or might attack the U.S. He did know and he did nothing. Plain and simple.

Rewriting History

Bill Clinton has made statements saying that he would have attacked Bin Laden in Afganistan if there had been proof that Bin Laden attacked the USS Cole:

"I desperately wish that I had been president when the FBI and CIA finally confirmed, officially, that bin Laden was responsible for the attack on the U.S.S. Cole," Clinton tells New York magazine this week. "Then we could have launched an attack on Afghanistan early."

Everyone and their mother knew that Bin Laden was responsible for this, and other attacks, during the Clinton administrationn. Bin Laden openly told the world that he was responsible. Bill Clinton is lying here, plain and simple. Remember, he was offered Bin Laden on a silver platter, and refused to take custody of him for fear of political ramifications.

Cindy Sheehan, the protesting Mom, is incredibly misguided. Here is what she had to say yesterday: "You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism." If these two things would actually stop terrorism, I would be all for it but, of course, they won't. The terrorists seek to end Western civilization. They think that we are evil and should all die. Nothing short of this will stop the violence. Ms. Sheehan should spend less time in a tent in Crawford, and more time in the library grasping a true understanding of the nature of our struggle. I feel bad about the fact that she lost her son, but this does not give her free reign to make ridiculous statements without a backlash.
