Flack says we invaded Iraq because he was sending money to the families of the suicide bombers.
Unfortunately for Flacktard we were attacked on 9-11 by Al Qaeda.
Sadam made payments to suicide bombers who were Palestinian fighting against Israel.
Here is when we get to add to the list of countries/territories that attacked us on 9-11, Palestine.
Hey stupid, it wasn't a country or a territory that attacked us, it was an ideology. It's either naive or pitifully partisan how you differentiate Islamic terrorists depending on the victims they blow up.

With more than 1 million immigrants from the former Soviet Union living in Israel, we should not be surprised that zionists have chosen to stand with Russia rather than the United States. Especially after Putin "congratulated Netanyahu on forming his new government."

But Bush was president and the propaganda media declared its summary judgment: Failure.
You just go along with whatever you're told not to believe. Bush's successes were overshadowed by the liberal media who didn't want you to believe it.
And, like a good liberal, you didn't.
Liberal?

I thought the Tenzing is always crying about his being a Libertarian. Maybe he's just been misspelling "Liberal", eh?

Bush On Jobs: The Worst Track Record On Record
http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/01/09/bus...
(That fact from the Wall Street Journal.)
Well, that's just a ridiculous comparison.

Clinton had the dot.com bubble that eventually burst just in time for his exit and a Republican congress who stabilized the budget even though Clinton was smart enough to go along with them.

Bush not only had 9/11 temporarily disrupting job growth but, by the end of his term, had the housing market collapse also which would obviously affect the overall job growth percentage number.

He isn't to blame for either crises. So those numbers of comparison have no comparison to other presidents who didn't have a 9/11 or a housing market collapse on their watch.

Leon Panetta did not purposefully leak information. He didn't run to the foreign press & cut some sort of deal.
He should have waited for the books to be published first.
It was a prepared speech. You liberals are the dumbest of the dumb. Of course Panetta cut some sort of deal-It's only a good leak if the O'bama administration thinks if helps them. This administration leaks all over the place or is that pisses?

Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed the name of the Navy SEAL unit that carried out the Osama bin Laden raid and named the unit’s ground commander at a 2011 ceremony attended by “Zero Dark Thirty” filmmaker Mark Boal.

Panetta also discussed classified information designated as “top secret” and “secret” during his presentation at the awards ceremony, according to a draft Pentagon inspector general’s report published Wednesday by the Project on Government Oversight.

Who says football players are the most physically fit?

The Espionage Act is a law from 1917 that was intended to criminalize individuals who engaged in spying, not leakers or whistleblowers. And she can't count. Further more she forgot Snowden.
Here are the other 7:
NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake was charged under the law in April 2010 for retaining classified information on secret surveillance programs. The government claimed it was for the purpose of disclosure.

For disclosing classified information on FBI wiretaps to a blogger, FBI translator named Shamai Leibowitz was charged under the Espionage Act.

Pfc. Bradley Manning was charged with multiple violations of the Espionage Act in July 2010 after disclosing US government information to WikiLeaks.

Stephen Kim, a former State Department contractor, was charged in August 2010 for revealing classified information on North Korea to Fox News reporter James Rosen.(Rosen was labeled an “aider, abettor and co-conspirator” in the leak.)

In December 2010, a former CIA officer, Jeffrey Sterling, was charged under the Espionage Act after he communicated with New York Times reporter James Risen about Iran’s nuclear program in the 1990s.(The Obama Justice Department has fought in the courts to have a judge require Risen to testify against Sterling.)

John Kiriakou, a former CIA officer, was charged under the Espionage Act in January 2012 after he shared information related to a rendition operation with reporter Matthew Cole.

A much lesser-known individual, James Hitselberger, a former Navy linguist, was charged with violating the Espionage Act for providing classified documents to the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

And now Snowden. More than likely O'bama will try to charge as many Americans as he can. The Leaker in Chief.

If Bush43 had been a 'democrat' then you and Fox & Friends would have nailed him for lack of leadership, and running up the national debt by 1.5 trillion dollars on two unpaid for foreign wars and a Medicare D bribe to potential elderly voters in Florida.

She does not need anyone acting as her spokesperson and in particular me. Don't know if she would appreciate it.
Sniping? Son, she sets herself up for the fall.
