Administration's War on the War on Terror

Remember that bin Laden video that was released before it was supposed to be? And the fun discussion over how it was grabbed, and by whom? Well guess what. The video was grabbed by a private firm, which alerted the Bush administration to the video, even setting up a platform by which admin & pentagon folk could download the video - all before it was officially released.

With me so far?

Well the next step is the fun one. Guess where the leak of the video came from to the press? Was it the private firm? Nah. It was the administration, of course. Yes, according to today's WaPo, some trigger happy little leaker over in the administration turned the video over to the press. A move that the private firm is saying not only alerted al Qaeda to the fact that the firm had grabbed the video, but also helped them find where their intelligence network link was weak so they could strengthen it up - thus stopping a nice flow of information being grabbed from the bad guys by the good guys.

So thanks Bush Administration - for once again proving that when it comes to the war on the war on terror - nobody holds a candle to you guys.

Hi, LaPopessa. Thanks for your visit today and kinds words. You have a LOVELY blog here. Yes, indeed. We'll add you to our list.

And you are dead on in this post. The administration has a war on political opponents, that's for sure. Might as well be a war on Democracy. Actually, I think it is.

Peace.

Great minds, LP :-)

More than that, Bush made us less safe, by intentionally burning a valuable intelligence asset for a temporary political advantage th hold onto the power to spy on us.

OBL has been dead since 2001. The Administration keeps him alive with smoke and mirrors because they need him.
