the SLIMES of New York: "Whatever it takes...all the sleaze that is fit to print..."
Er, Jayson Blair wrote all of that. We have no idea what he was talking about.
NY Times Editorial Fraud investigation department:
wow !!! frickin great job!
WOW - this has to be one of the biggest finds ever!
Ok I forwarded my letter there, thanks for the info
BUMP! I just sent this out to my email list.
Then again maybe they're taking themselves down a peg at a time.
Even THEY can't get totally away with this s**t anymore.
Bush and Cheney are now taking them on DIRECTLY. HOORAY!!!
Nice b*tchslap of the Grey Whore. Flaming, lying, Clymers, the lot of them....
Oh, that is SOOOOO last century.
Both headlines are non-contrdictory. Remember that Saddam Hussein, who ruled Iraq in 1998, sits in jail in 2004. The Republic of Iraq today doesn't support terrorism; Saddam Hussein did.
I can only wish that was what the NYT reported

Great find, tallhappy!
Bookmarked to my Iraq/AQ connection file.
Thanks for the ping, lysie! Have added that great find to my Iraq/AQ connection file.
It is time for Punch and his slime ball editors to do the one honorable thing in their lives!
KITTY ENJOYS THE ONE HONORABLE THING DONE BY PUNCH AND THE NY SLIMES EDITORS.
Soooo, how is it that Holbrooke opposes the GWB moves (which were passed by both houses of Congress by huge majorities)? Because he's a lying liar, unlike the victims of Al Franken's latest POS.The Fog Of Invented FactsThe invented fact here is that Atta was on the CIA's watch list. Nor was he on any other government watch list prior to September 11th. Its repetition lays down a fog about the responsibility for the attack. For example, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, when lecturing at the JFK Library on Oct 4th, 2001, described the "law enforcement failure" of September 11th as follows:
by Edward Jay Epstein"To understand how bad it was, you need look no further than the specific movements of Mohammed Atta, who was probably the mastermind of these attacks, all of which has now been in the newspapers. The CIA put him on the watch list of most wanted terrorists in the world sometime in the early summer or late spring of this year... It is clear, therefore, that the FBI. and the FAA. don't talk to each other, that the FBI. never gave the watch list names to leading American airlines"
Missing Links FoundRemember how anti-liberation politicians and journalists pooh-poohed Colin Powell's February 2003 speech to the U.N. about the presence in Iraq of a Qaeda associate, identified in this space as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi? Powell's assertion had this "sensitive reporting" basis: "As of Oct. 2002 al Zarqawi was setting up sleeper cells in Baghdad to be activated in case of a U.S. occupation of the city." ...Feith's intelligence summary available to senators: "The Czech counterintelligence service reported that the Sept. 11 hijacker [Mohamed] Atta met with the former Iraqi intelligence chief in Prague, al Ani, on several occasions. During one of those meetings, al Ani ordered the IIS [Iraq Intelligence Service] finance officer to issue Atta funds from IIS financial holdings in the Prague office." ...Though the C.I.A. can confirm two Atta trips to Prague, in 1994 and 2000, it cannot confirm the two other visits the Czechs reported, including one on April 9, 2001, with Saddam's top European agent, al-Ani, then vice consul in Prague. C.I.A. chief George Tenet testified that the meeting reported by the Czech service was "possible," but the F.B.I. floated hints that car rental records showed Atta to be traveling between Virginia and Florida that week. Enter the writer Edward Jay Epstein in the liberal online journal Slate: "All these reports attributed to the FBI were, as it turns out, erroneous. There were no car rental records in Virginia, Florida, or anywhere else in April 2001 for Mohamed Atta, since he had not yet obtained his Florida license." You cannot rent a car without a driver's license.

This is a great find and post by tallhappy!
Can you please email to me privately?
We all know that the NY Times has an agenda. They aren't journalists, they are propagandists.
I heard a man being interviewed yesterday by Larry Elder who mentioned this same info about the Iraqi-Osama agreement.
I'll tell you, if every Freeper would do two hours of research a week browsing through that vast land of Liberal-Media-Past, we would have tons of ammunition. Almost too much to fathom, I reckon.
I think I need to get off my butt and do as such.
That detail seems to be in an 8 page indictment rather than the 157 page indictment. (as near as I can tell!)
The 8 page indictment is here:
Go to page 3 .. Number 4
Mo1 found this one.
The phrase in the document is a two-bagger.
It references both Iran and Iraq!!!!
Liberals simply can't grasp the problem Lexis-Nexis poses to their incessant lying.
Just share what we find with your e-mail friends.
They will share with their friends.
This is the power we have over the media.
Outstanding, will have to check out the indictment.
I swear I was about to email Rush - he is reading the article right now.
Think he's a Freeper?
Great find. Rush is reading this article now!
If not .. I'll bet someone on his staff is
on Rush now!
Someone on his staff regularly reads FR, that's for certain. He will often pick up the really devastating stories published here, very soon after they hit the forum.
From a Freeper's outstanding research to millions of ears.
Rush is just started talking about this--- he's been lurking again.
Rush is doing this beautifully!
Bush even is on fire, reading the 1940's article from the NY Times that Rush mentioned yesterday.
LOL ... all they need is google ..
I found LOADS of articles from 1998 mentioning the connection
Like this one .. Gosh I love research *L*
Saddam Hussein's regime has opened talks with Osama bin Laden, bringing closer the threat of a terrorist attack using chemical, biological or nuclear weapons, according to US intelligence sources and Iraqi opposition officials.
The key meeting took place in the Afghan mountains near Kandahar in late December. The Iraqi delegation was led by Farouk Hijazi, Baghdad's ambassador in Turkey and one of Saddam's most powerful secret policemen, who is thought to have offered Bin Laden asylum in Iraq
Pakistan helped Osama, Iraq didn't: 9/11 panel
Of course they have amnesia, it doesn't fit into their agenda. The truth according to liberals is whatever is more politically expedient at the time, and many times it is quite marxist.
You don't get it. We apoligized for our mistaken, biased coverage in the run-up to the war in Iraq because it fits our agenda to defeat Mr. Bush at all costs. This includes any statement made by anyone claiming Mr. Hussein was a bad man or acted in concert with bad men, like Osama Bin Laden. It's not like we're going to tell you that there's a tape graphically depicting prison torture directed Mr. Hussein. Only American troops can systematically torture Iraqi prisoners. Remember Abu Ghraib?
We apologized. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized? Mr. Bush should apologize to the American people for letting them think Mr. Hussein was an evil dictator. Things are not so black and white. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized? Mr. Bush is not nuanced and his world view is simplistic. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized? We apologized. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized?
The New York Times
P.S. Why hasn't Mr. Bush apologized?
From one El Dorado to another, his name is Stephen Hayes, his new book is called "Connection".
He also writes for the Weekly Standard.
I am certain they will maintain that "the truth changed", as "everyone knows" WJC's administration was riddled with lies....
