ABC: Agent Backs Cheney

We are all used to Dick Cheney and his cabal twisting the facts to support their diabolical plots, but they also have an agent over at ABC, Jonathan Karl, doing their dirty work.

He has a new article at ABC reporting on the looming attack on Iran. When describing Iran’s phony nuclear weapons program and when Iran might have a bomb, he asserts: “According to the latest U.S. and Israeli intelligence assessments, that is likely to happen sometime in 2009, and could happen by the end of this year.”(!)

To support this ridiculous claim, in the middle of the article they have a banner which says: “Related-Exclusive: Iran Nuclear Bomb Could Be Possible by 2009.” This takes you to an article which lays out Iran’s enormous increase in number of centrifuges as the means for their soon to be nuclear bomb. The “expert” describing this emanate danger is none other than the recently discredited David Albright.

Not to mention, this article is from April 2007! Seven months before the NIE, where all sixteen U.S. intelligence agencies unanimously agree that: “…the earliest possible date Iran would be technically capable of producing enough HEU for a weapon is late 2009, but that this is very unlikely.”

Here we go again. We see the media cuddling up to an administration that is determined to make the facts fit the policy. Just five years ago they misled us into the catastrophic debacle in Iraq. Bush apologists insist that it was an honest mistake getting the intelligence exactly wrong, while most Americans are convinced they intentionally lied. Whichever version you believe, how could anyone trust them again?

    It’s pretty amazing that they can pull this shit and get away with it.  But considering the what Dr. Porter said yesterday it’s no surprise.

    And of course the Amerikan Sheeple are basically brain dead drones so this criminal government can pretty much get away with anything.

    And speaking of criminals ya see what Iraq Obombya is saying about Iraq. The F’er is sounding just like Johnny McStain

    Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on Thursday backed off his firm promise to withdraw combat forces from Iraq immediately, and instead said he could “refine” his plan after his trip to Baghdad later this month.
    Earlier, a top Obama adviser had said that the senator is not “wedded” to a specific timeline.

    All these GD liberals can say is that Obombya is the candidate of change when the fact is that if Iraq Hussein McStain Mugabe Obombya is elected NOT ONE foreign US military base will be closed.

    It’s gonna be pretty hard for Iran to make enough HEU by the end of 2009 if they don’t start making it soon.  So far, IAEA has confirmed that all of the enriched uranium Iran has produced at Natanz is low enriched, suitable only for power plants and useless for bombs.  The only way they can start making HEU without it being detected by the IAEA is if they have a clandestine facility unknown to IAEA (therefor unknown to CIA and Mossad since they would presumably notify IAEA which would immediately inspect).  Now, since ya gotta know where something is before ya can bomb it, my conclusion is that bombing can only prevent Iran from using nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.  Bombing can not prevent them from making a bomb, or even slow down the accumulation of HEU (if indeed they were making it).  It can, however, provide them with the incentive to create a bomb so they would be afforded the same respect as North Korea.

    The press has basically lost its “trust” requirement. The news is now opinion and view points. The Web has made it easier to watch the cutting and editing of a news story and thankfully we have observant people keeping eyes open.
