Soft on Terror

Bill Clinton was soft on terror. Get used to seeing and hearing those words because Bush and the lap dog media will repeat them over and over again until Election Day.

NBC is giving us the earth shattering news that bin Laden was in Afghanistan during the Clinton years. We all knew that. How is this information significant? It isn't of course, but the CIA just happened to find this video during an election year and just happened to give it to NBC. The purpose of all this is to make Americans think that all Democrats are soft on terror, Kerry included.

Do the Democrats know how to make the argument that we could have captured Osama if we hadn't diverted resources to Iraq? If they can't then we will see another Bush inaugural in January. By the way, has NBC reported the Bush administration efforts to stonewall the 9/11 commission? Have they done a 3 part report on the Bin Ladens and other Saudis leaving the U.S. in the days following 9/11? Can they tell us why the Bushies haven't been interested in getting him until election year? Only 3 years have passed since 9/11.

Speaking of pro-Bush media bias, have you noticed that the approaching anniversary of the Iraq war has produced a bevy of administration talking heads and few if any anti-war voices? gives the Sunday talk show breakdown and tells us how to respond to this blatant bias. Anyone watching the networks last Sunday would think that there isn't any anti-war sentiment or that if it does exist it can't be very important. Howard Dean was on Meet the Press, but his presence was too much for NBC because they decided to spend the rest of the week telling us that Democrats are soft on terror.
