FOXNews.com impugns Dubya

FOXNews.com - The Big Story w/ John Gibson - My Word - Was Iraq Behind the Oklahoma City Bombing?


Ten years after the Oklahoma City bombing, Fox News wants to blame it on Iraq (and on Clinton, who had it covered up).

So now the question: So if there is all this evidence, why has the U.S. government ignored it?

Well, for one thing, I submit George W. Bush didn't ignore it after September 11, 2001. He realized then that Iraq was behind a lot of the attacks on the U.S. and it was time for it to stop.


I see -- Bush felt the WMD evidence invented from whole cloth was so compelling, and the spurious Saddam-9/11 connection so solid, that there was no need to reveal a literal smoking gun -- an attack by Iraq on our own soil?

That takes the boy king even further into the pathological than I would have put him. It says not just that he is willing to lie to get what he wants; it says that he would rather offer up weak lies than powerful truth that would, to all outward appearances, be more effective for his purposes. In effect, it says he lies not for expedience, but on principle.

If Fox News says it, it must be true.

Yah, sure. The way I choose to read this inadvertent dis is that Gibson elliptically called Shrub a pathological liar. Hence he "impugned" Shrub.

Q.E.D.

Gibson's claim is as silly as all the folks that claim the WMD got shipped to Syria just before the war started. If either was true it would make Bush look like a hero yet you never hear either claim from Bush or any official government source. Apparently these are the only 2 lies that are too big for Bush to tell.

Yo, negonews, learn english.
There definitely is a disconnect between the Cons and reality, but this is just sloppy logic.
Look out! Nitwits at the Wheel!

We all know John "My Hair is Huge!" Gibson is one of the biggest idiots on television. It doesn't surprise me that he would toss this bunch of yak shit out in the constant Fox efforts to bolster Boy Dubya's credibility. They just fire off one salvo after another, almost at random, hoping one of them will catch on with the public, then they leap to get behind it and push it for all it's worth.

It will be interesting to see if Limbaugh, Hannity, and O'Reilly follow suit and start hammering on the OK-Iraq "connection."

I quit watching the FoxLies when David Asman and others showed the spy film of troops practicing their skills by rushing an old jet pax fuselage. This was obviously SWAT team traing and not Hi-Jackers in training as claimed by Fox. Hi-Jackers work by stealth inside the aircraft--never by rushing it when parked on the tarmac!
