Washington Post Editors Continue Smearing the Wilsons

(72) Comments | Posted December 5, 2010 | 3:26 PM

When will the Washington Post editorial page decide to stop smearing Joe and Valerie Wilson? The Post is up in arms over Hollywood's "disregard for the truth" and is out in print today with an editorial trying to discredit the Wilson's and the movie. Good on the Post.

The Obama Democrats' Ostrich Moment

(46) Comments | Posted May 9, 2008 | 3:08 AM

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.usThe full-court press to force Hillary from the presidential race ain't working. She will win the West Virginia, Kentucky, and Puerto Rico primaries.

But the screwed-up, patchwork system the Democrats are using to choose delegates...

The Intellectual Poverty of Frank Rich

(128) Comments | Posted March 23, 2008 | 7:23 PM

While the competition has been keen at the New York Times to secure the mantle as the most virulent Hillary hater, Frank Rich is in a class by himself. No other columnist now writing for the "Gray Lady" is more intellectually dishonest and lacking in basic integrity than Frank Rich,...

No, He Can't Because Yes, They Will

(363) Comments | Posted February 16, 2008 | 6:29 PM

Obama's mantra, "Yes, We Can" is inspiring and heartwarming, but in the end is an empty phrase that will founder once the Republican political attack machine spins up. I realize that most Obamatons are so wedded to his vision of hope that any effort to point out the cracks in...

Am I a Hillary Cheerleader?

(65) Comments | Posted December 23, 2007 | 1:57 PM

Several have asked who I am backing to be the next president. I have not decided on a final choice because, to be candid, I have little say in the matter. I live and vote in Maryland. By the time primary season rolls around in my neck of the woods...

Why is Obama in Bed with Karl Rove?

(66) Comments | Posted November 21, 2007 | 1:11 PM

If Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Hillary Clinton's campaign told him that they had some dirt on Obama, would Obama's staff react as they did to the Robert Novak column of November 17? And yes, I am putting Novak in the same category as the crazy Iranian leader. Novak...

The Bombed Bridges of Baghdad

(7) Comments | Posted June 12, 2007 | 12:22 PM

Unlike the film, The Bridges of Madison County, the bombed bridges of Baghdad are not a quaint romantic tale, but a warning sign of potential disaster for U.S. forces in Iraq.  The ongoing attacks on bridges in and around Baghdad creates significant risks and logistical obstacles for U.S. forces...

Bye Bye, Perfect Peter

(4) Comments | Posted June 8, 2007 | 9:29 PM

Let there be no doubt--Perfect Peter Pace has been shown the door because of his letter to Judge Walton pleading on behalf of Scooter Libby. That letter was the final straw demonstrating his incompetence and political tin ear as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. How can you call...

A Bloody Lie of George Tenet

(16) Comments | Posted May 7, 2007 | 3:06 PM

How many lies is George Tenet allowed to tell on TV before he immolates the last shred of credibility? Judging by his latest sad performance on Meet the Press I would say his time is up. Tenet insisted to Tim Russert that he was crystal clear in debunking the assumption...

Washington Post Enables Toensing's Delusions

(38) Comments | Posted February 18, 2007 | 5:44 PM

Congratulations to Victoria Toensing, former Reagan Administration Justice Department official, for plumbing new depths of delusion and crazed fantasies in her latest Washington Post op-ed. Ms. Toensing's piece--Trial in Error--should have been titled, "I Am Ignorant of Basic Facts." She offers up two special gems:

* Valerie Plame...

Pincus Lit the Fuse on the Plamegate Bomb

(6) Comments | Posted February 6, 2007 | 11:57 AM

Until the start of the Libby trial, most folks and chroniclers assumed that the Nick Kristof piece in May of 2003 spurred the White House to go after Joe and Valerie Wilson.  But based on the timeline emerging from the Libby trial the real culprit is Walter Pincus, the legendary...

Peter Lance's Flawed Triple Cross

(6) Comments | Posted December 6, 2006 | 12:41 PM

I believe that Peter Lance's new book, Triple Cross, is a flawed and inaccurate piece of investigative reporting. Not the kind of work one would expect from a five time Emmy award winning reporter. I write this not out of animus towards Peter Lance. I reached this conclusion based on...

Bob Gates, He's Back

(36) Comments | Posted November 8, 2006 | 2:15 PM

Before the media goes overboard extolling the virtues of Bob Gates as the replacement for Don Rumsfeld, it is important to look back at Gates' record and reputation. Gates has some "splaining" to do. The press has forgotten that Bob Gates, during his time at CIA, acquired a reputation...

Florian Sokolowski, Coward

(19) Comments | Posted October 30, 2006 | 7:42 PM

If you caught the Stephanie Miller show today, you probably heard her chat with the fellow who sent her a death threat (Brad's Blog has posted up a copy of the letter). The coward is an elderly gent, Florian A. "Sock" Sokolowski. His letter lists Centerville, Ohio as...

Condi Rice: Liar, Stupid, or Both?

(85) Comments | Posted September 28, 2006 | 8:14 PM

When it comes to the 9-11 blame game, Condi Rice is either a liar or stupid.  No other logical possibility accounts for her delusional claim to the New York Post that, "We were not left a comprehensive strategy to fight al Qaeda."   Rice was responding to President Clinton, who told...

Although the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) regarding Iraq and terrorism is still classified (UPDATE:  The Key Judgments are now declassified and can be found at this link), the data behind the findings is not and has been publicly available for three years.  I have written repeatedly on this...

Maliki and Al Sadr Punk America

(13) Comments | Posted September 23, 2006 | 3:47 PM

I will say it simply--the Iraqi Government of Prime Minister Maliki is taking part in an information operation to help Republicans in the upcoming election. The evidence? How about the repeated claims that "we have killed or captured" the number two in Iraq? (And no, my reference to "number two"...

Armitage Into the Trick Box

(20) Comments | Posted September 14, 2006 | 10:25 AM

Joe and Val Wilson filed an amended complaint today that adds Richard Armitage to their law suit.  The media spin is that Armitage is the guilty party and everyone else in the Bush Administration are off the hook.  How so many media mavens can exhibit such profound stupidity...

Hyping Terror, Thanking Syria

(18) Comments | Posted September 12, 2006 | 3:43 PM

The rightwing media (Wall Street Journal editorial page and National Review) have frequently criticized me for my July 2001 op-ed in the New York Times, which argued that terrorism was not the greatest threat facing the United States.  Within the last month articles by Ohio State University professor,...
