Dead or Alive or, uh, um.....heh heh...uh, er.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The CIA has closed down the unit that was assigned to hunting down Osama bin Laden and has reassigned those agents to other duties.

Look, let's not even argue about the man's so-called "diminished role" in al-Qaida. Fucker plotted the deaths of 3000 people. What fucking criminals are we concerned about capturing and putting on trial if not him?

Erm...seriously...What. the. FUCK, Dubbya?!?!

But what I really want to know is, why aren't the dem's making more of a fucking stink about this? You gotta give republicans one thing - they sure as shit know how to work the media better than their liberal opponents.


Who IS their marketing person, anyway?!?! I need a job... ;)

Isn't that why they hired Howard Dean?

Imagaine this was Bill Clinton, Al Gore or any other Democrat. The headline would read-

Democrats Give Up On Fighting Terror

Hill is seriously correct. Republicans get such a free ride in the mainstream media.

Apparently John Kerry has written a letter to Negroponte protesting this. Excerpts:

"This unit should be reconstituted immediately and given all resources necessary to finish the job of holding bin Laden accountable and preventing him from organizing or inspiring future attacks against the United States and our allies...

"..Moreover, disbanding the bin Laden unit sends the message to the terrorists that they can kill thousands of Americans without being held to account....

"..Past failures to eliminate bin Laden at Tora Bora and in the nearly five years since 9/11 are no excuse for failing to do everything possible to find him now..."

Etc etc..
Sometimes the Dem's don't suck so bad, but you're right about their shite usage of the media. Although, the fact much of the media takes its orders from the White House isn't helpful either :)

Here's the link from Raw Story

The media being liberal is the worst fucking lie ever told by the rightees. The newspapers are owned by big business. Only the reporters, who do tend to be liberal minded, balance it out a smidge. But in the end its the editors and owners who determine what is news.

Here's an ancient Charlie Rose episode, with Richard Clarke. Just watch the first 5 minutes or so, it's amazing how right the Clinton administration was about terrorism.

Randy: Don't they already run that headline every week any way?

Carrie: Who's John Kerry?

Dad: Excellent point. I'm sure the media will eventually point this out about themselves.

DeVang: I heart Richard Clarke!
