Dem congressman: Hey, maybe Bush let Osama get away on purpose to justify the Iraq war

posted at 9:02 pm on November 30, 2009 by Allahpundit

No no, just kidding: There’s no “maybe” here. On the contrary, he blithely asserts that “there’s no question about it,” which precipitates the first and likely last defense of George W. Bush ever mounted by David Shuster. But then, this is the same guy who once claimed that Karl Rove planted the phony memos that destroyed Dan Rather’s career, who called for nationalizing America’s oil industry, and who thought it’d be super-keen to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine. Chock full o’ good ideas, he is; it was only a matter of time before he stumbled across this one.

As for the merits of his argument, let me see if I have this straight. Bush deliberately refused to take out Bin Laden at Tora Bora when he had the chance, even though (a) it would have been an enormous boost for him politically, arguably making his goal of invading Iraq even easier to achieve; (b) Bin Laden’s lingering presence in the tribal areas gave Democrats an effective talking point against Iraq for years afterward about “taking our eye off the ball” and “fighting the real war” (which, at the moment, they no longer want to fight); (c) Bush himself repeatedly emphasized, as one of his own core talking points, that the war on terror is much bigger than one archterrorist and can only be won by democratizing and liberalizing the Middle East. Listening to Hinchey here, you’d think it was Osama, not WMD, that Dubya had claimed Saddam was hiding. But whatever. This isn’t a serious argument being made by Hinchey, merely a little reminder ahead of Obama’s speech tomorrow night that Bush is the devil and responsible for every last problem the left has to deal with, etc etc etc. Take it in the dumb, thoughtless spirit in which it’s offered.

Nobody bother calling for this guy’s ouster from Congress. Without looking, I’m going to guess he represents suburban NYC or the interior of the city itself and is therefore untouchable (like Rangel, Louise Slaughter, Jose Serrano, and a large number of other prole-baiters from NY).

I’ll believe Bin Laden is still alive when I see a pic of him posing with a recent edition of his favorite newspaper, the NY Traitor Times.

Until I see that, I will believe Osama once served temporarily as worm food deep in a cave somewhere in Ashcanistan.

Dave R. on November 30, 2009 at 9:22 PM

What is the alternative? That Bush was just stupid to outsource the end game to Muslims at Tora Bora? I’ll go with stupid over malicious. He did the same thing with Saddam on a small scale, had him captured by a Muslim in his rat hole. Makes a nice photo op of Muslims as our warrior brothers. Great for diversity.

No, he represents a conservative area in upstate NY (NY-22 meaning it’s next to 23), although it does contain liberal areas.

However the NY Republican party has its own concerns and they don’t seem to revolve around the national scene. I think they’re more worried about state legislature and controlling the debate there.

That way we would not have to put up with paranoid conspiracy theorist nuts like this idiot shooting their mouths of in public every time someone points a TV camera and microphone their way.

This kinda reminds me of six years or so when the Democrats, the Media, and Liberal Academia did everything that they could to fight against President Bush and our troops in the field to loose, based on their political ideology.

From speeches in the Senate, Movies, daily ‘Death Counts’, publishing our Intelligence Operations, basically giving ‘aid and comfort’ to the enemy.

The Democrats have made their beds. Now they are in charge, and just can’t man up to the empty rhetoric and house of cards they built their base on. Kinda like ‘Man Made Global Warming’.

Eventually, these tools will have to leave the ‘beltway’ and come live amoung the rest of us… Happy Trails!

As always, when democrats are devoid of any ideas or solutions and are pretty much screwing things up,the first thing they have to do is “blame Bush”.

This line of attack seems pretty idiotic considering the awful record democrats have in dealing with Bin Laden themselves:

State Dept. Says It Warned About bin Laden in 1996

August 17, 2005
By ERIC LICHTBLAU
http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/17/international/asia/17osama.html?_r=1&pagewanted=print&oref=slogin

WASHINGTON, Aug. 16 – State Department analysts warned the Clinton administration in July 1996 that Osama bin Laden’s move to Afghanistan would give him an even more dangerous haven as he sought to expand radical Islam “well beyond the Middle East,” but the government chose not to deter the move, newly declassified documents show.

The Clinton administration was warned that letting Osama go to Afghanistan would be a deadly mistake.

They did nothing about it on top of the fact that they had more than 8 chances to take Bin Laden out.

Scheuer, who was head of the Bin Laden unit, and appointed by democrats puts this in it’s proper perspective:

By Michael Rule (Bio | Archive)
September 25, 2006 – 10:28 ET
http://newsbusters.org/node/7871

On Monday’s “Early Show”, co-host Harry Smith talked with Scheuer about the war in Iraq and the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Smith was shocked when Scheuer laid the blame at the feet of the Clinton administration, and attempted to put the focus back on failures of the Bush Administration. Smith highlighted president Clinton’s defense of his administration:

“Let’s talk about what President Clinton had to say on Fox yesterday. He basically laid blame at the feet of the CIA and the FBI for not being able to certify or verify that Osama bin Laden was responsible for a number of different attacks. Does that ring true to you?”

Scheuer refuted Smith’s portrayal of Clinton:

“No, sir, I don’t think so. The president seems to be able, the former president seems to be able to deny facts with impugnity. Bin Laden is alive today because Mr. Clinton, Mr. Sandy Berger, and Mr. Richard Clarke refused to kill him. That’s the bottom line. And every time he says what he said to Chris Wallace on Fox, he defames the CIA especially, and the men and women who risk their lives to give his administration repeated chances to kill bin Laden.”


Smith couldn’t let these facts tarnish the Clinton legacy, so he attempted to change the subject back to the Bush Administration:
“All right, is the Bush administration any less responsible for not finishing the job in Tora Bora?”


Scheuer acknowledged that there is plenty of blame to go around for not getting bin Laden, but asserted that Clinton bears most of it:


Scheuer continued his response and accused President Clinton of lying to the American people:

“…But it’s just, it’s an incredible kind of situation for the American people over the weekend to hear their former president mislead them.”

If Bin Laden getting away in Tora Bora while hundreds of our troops are putting their lives on the line to get him is such a disaster,
…then Clinton letting him go more than eight times and allowing him to set up in Afghanistan must be considered a major catastrophe!!!!

Liberals really are stuck on stupid!!!!

You got that right.
They did the same thing with the Iraq war where they expected people to forget the almost 10 years they yelled and screamed about Saddam’s WMD’s and ties to al-qaeda before Bush was even President.

If “Bush lied” then so did a whole lot of democrats,newspapers,and news programs,UN,and other countries intelligence agencies.

But the press plays right along….the dems throw out the talking points and the press repeat them over and over and over ignoring facts and the truth.

I love how these conspiracy theories ignore the brutal force of logic;

If GW Bush had succeeded in capturing Bin Laden at Tora Bora, his popularity would have remained at untouchable levels throughout the remainder of his first, and all of his second terms.

The American public would have given him carte blanche for anything on his agenda.

Show me a compelling benefit for letting the greatest enemy of the American people ever get away.

Anyone? Anyone? Buehler?

Such in-depth analysis, you must write for the huffington post, they don’t like facts either.

For something more factual try:
Jawbreaker: The Attack on Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda: A Personal Account by the CIA’s Key Field Commander (Gary Berntsen)
