Driving While Defeatist

A call out to Anotmo. When I read this piece by Frank Gaffney, I thought of you. You have presented this issue to me before. Why aren't they pressed to answer the hard questions about the ramifications of a defeat in Iraq?

By Frank J. Gaffney, Jr.

"Members of the 110th Congress are behaving like drunken drivers with respect to the conflict in Iraq, veering wildly all over the road, seemingly oblivious to the risk they pose to others. Before they do actual harm by voting on various resolutions aimed at repudiating President Bush and further undermining his wartime leadership, they should be obliged to sit through the sort of sobering, behavior-modification program to which courts assign those found operating heavy equipment while inebriated."

  • Yeah, I read that one too H-H. I read another article somewhere that addressed the same issue, (I don't remember where or who), and I have since heard Rush make the same point on his radio program.

    I do not know why the MSM doesn't ask 'Iraq Withdrawal' advocates 'The Question', i.e. “What do you think the consequences will be of our withdrawing from Iraq before the democratically elected Iraqi government can maintain and defend itself?”.

    Absent the politics and particulars of the current Iraqi situation the question becomes simply; “What do you think the consequences will be of implementing your plan?” It seems to me like that is a natural enough question to ask any side in any dispute over what should be done regarding any issue.

    Worst case it is a deliberate and conscious conspiracy by the MSM to avoid discussing the point for partican reasons. A more benign view, taken by Bernard Goldberg, is that it is a coincidental and subconcious conspiracy occassioned by Liberals being so enamoured of the essential goodness of their intentions that it simply never occurs to them to question the wisdom of the actual actions they propose to achieve those intentions.

    Either way it is an execuseable breech of journalistic professionalism.
