Does Cheney 'Validate' al-Qaeda?

By Robert Parry
March 1, 2007

Vice President Dick Cheney says he stands by his accusation that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan for withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq would “validate the al-Qaeda strategy.” And he apparently thinks he got the better of this latest war of words.

However, if Pelosi ever goes beyond complaining that Cheney is impugning her “patriotism” – while Cheney counters that he is only questioning her “judgment” – she might point out that it is the Bush administration that has “validated” al-Qaeda’s 9/11 strategy over the past five years.

one thing nancy could do is go visit your archives on consortium news and carefully read his articulate and well-documented reporting on the crimes and lies of the bush administration... then she should set her staff doing due diligence and assembling the mass of documentation parry references and distilling it into a comprehensive briefing, complete with executive summary and press releases, on the monstrosities we elected to govern our country... THOSE would be the democratic talking points, repeated endlessly by every house democrat every time he or she makes a public statement... let's cut the crap and stop tolerating bush and his gang... we need STEELY RESOLVE...! we need ACTION...!

Dear Consortium News contributors.

Been reading the majority of the emails you have been sending and there is a sense of urgency.

I share with you that urgency and been trying to get your support into getting this matter to stick its head into mainstream.

The following is the latest article on this matter I have written:
"Is it high treason or just a simple case of dereliction of duty?"

I strongly believe that once this matter peaks its head into mainstream, the Bush cabal will come tumbling down like a house of cards.

Kindly pay a bit of attention to it.

From previous direct emails, you have my email address and phone number.

In solidarity,
Maher Osseiran

This is standard operating procedure, SOP,for the bUSHIT'es and Repubicans deflect responsibility for their failures to Pelosi in this case. The decision to divert troops from Afghanistan to Iraq is equal, strategically, to Hitlers blunder of diverting the German 6th Army to Stalingrad instead of proceeding to the Russian oil fields of the caucuses as originally intended. This strategic blunder ultimately resulted in the defeat of the Nazi's as the 6th Army was annihilated. The obvious fact is that OBL had the book on how to engage Bush. This knowledge, by OBL, would be known due to the Bush family's long standing ties to the Saudi and Bin Laden families in their business dealings. Meanwhile, Bush ignored the intelligence about OBL and al quedea due to his megalomania messianic arrogance and the influence of Cheney and Rummy who knew how to play Bush. The rest is history.
