NYT PLANS EXCLUSIVE STORY ON IRAQ AND RESEARCH OF NUKE BOMB... NEWSROOM SOURCE TELLS DRUDGE: 'IT WILL LEAD THE PAPER ON FRIDAY... IT SHOULD IGNITE NEWS CYCLES'... DEVELOPING...
Well, is Drudge ever going to put the story out? In a few hours the Times will have it published.
It would be nice, though..
My money is on Rove.
I think it will a hit piece against President Bush that will be full of lies and distortions.
Could explain why Bush & Rove have been so optimistic.
Wishful thinking I know...
I dunno ... This paper pimped for Stalin.
If this was from the dem side, we would have heard it a few days earlier when they were freaking out about Kerry, perhaps? That it was completely quiet until now, maybe rove?
Yes, I know my thinking is more hoping, but who knows.
NJewsopapers want to sell news no matter what it is ..if there is good news from the WH someone has to put it out there ....and I dont think they would lead with Fox...
Maybe Im an optimist but Rove is Rove
i'm afraid they are latching on to conspiracy theory about the forward operating base falcon destruction earlier this month. a fire destroyed the ammunition dump at falcon during which, there was a huge explosion (that many daily-kossaks are convinced was a tactical nuke) producing a mushroom cloud.
my suspicion? that the nyt is going to run speculation-as-fact (again) and try and nail bush for having a nuke in iraq.
wow ...I can spell Newspapers
I don't think that is "nuke research"
Maybe this is why rove et al have been so weirdly optimistic.
I hope you are right, but I do not recall when did the New York Times publish anything good about President Bush and the Republican Party. Anyway, if they are lying we have strong evidence to expose their lies.
What a bunch of morons. Clearly they know nothing about nuclear weapons or explosives in general. A nuclear weapon will not produce nuclear yield because it is burned or blown up by an outside explosion. All that will do is set off the HE in the nuke incorrectly and throw plutonium all over the place.
Secondly, when enough conventional explosives go off, it will produce a mushroom cloud.
What? First of all, there would be nuclear fallout all over Iraq, the Middle East and stretching into Asia. Second, why in the world would we need a nuke positioned in Iraq?
And he has that machine fired up...
Isn't there one soul on FR who has an in at the Times?
I mean how secret could this be,,somebody has to leak tonight.
Does anyone know when the early edition comes out online?
Allows less time for a reasoned response.
Saddam Hussein is SCHEDULED to be sentenced for his murder of the Kurds on Sunday--the Slimes is timing this piece, I think, to help obliterate that news...
Never trust a liberal. Never.
And he has that machine fired up...
Can he help me with that babe in the adjoining office?!
Great minds and all that!!! See my post #36. We're on the same wavelength.
Damn....I hope we're right. There is no reason for the NYT to bring up this subject just before the election - almost everyone has bought the spin by Blix and the Dems that Saddam wasn't a nuclear threat!!!
Rove - you magnificent bastard!
Unless they share the view that a GOP hold on Tuesday helps the traitor that get's nominated in 08 get the big prize.
Tinfoil off now ;)
I agree with Fresh Winds theory. See my post # 36 for an
elaboration of the plot. I think Rove - The Magnificant Bastard - may have pulled off the most stunning horsetrade of a lifetime.
Your contribution should be a finalist for the next Spork Weasel Awards!
If it's more Iraq and Bush bashing we've already heard it all.
i understand all that. there would also be questions about an 'emp' frying everything electronic within half a mile of fob falcon...
i'm not saying i ascribe to this theory. but, it makes sense that the nyt would be giddy about running such a story.
hey i could be wrong -- and i hope i am.
Yeah, I didn't see your post till after I made mine!
Christmas might be early this year.
I think FreshWind is on to something. See my post #36 for for the senario I sketched out that might make this a workable deal.
Un-be-leeeeeeevably funny! OUTSTANDING!!!
That's not mine-that's dead's work!
Or someting equally as stupid, but the left will of course eat it up.
I surely hope I am wrong; but I rate the chances of the NY Slimes running anything vaguely supportive of Bush the Friday before the election as Slim and None - and Slim is outta town! More likely some moonbat has gotten a Clinton judge to issue an order against Bush.
Whoa, wait, this is probable. What if the CLINTONS are behind this? A GOP win now would help Hillary in '08 - the current leading freaks (Pelosi, Dirty Harry, Dean, etc.) would be ousted by the freak sheep that make up the party. With all of the build up to this election the democrat sheep are expecting a big win, but if they don't take control they'll go manic on the current democrat leadership. Hmmm.
When I saw that, I could picture Howard Dean shouting that, like Captain Kirk trapped inside of the Genesis planet in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn screaming, "Kahnnnnn!!!!"
Exactly my meaning.
I am glad you and I were on the same page.
Guess if its negative to the GOP: That Iraq or sorces within the Iraqi govt RECENTLY starting looking into nuke tech, going behind the US's back or with "tacit approval"...leading to the NYT able to talk about how the invasion was worse for potential terrorist activities. It wouldn't take much of a drumming up of secret quotes etc to piece together that kind of story.
Positive-Some kind of ironclad proof that Saddam was dealing in Nuke tech. For this to be true I would posit it would have to be so ridiculously obvious that the NYT can't deny it, and values the "scoop" over the affect of the election.
Your post is logical and factual - but when has the NY Slimes ever let facts and logic derail a story that supports its agenda?
I wish and hopen that you are right.
BUT, I think we both know better. I am so used to the constant attacks by the drive by media that I am braced but not too worried about this.
After all, it is the Slimes!
Has Rupert Murdoch made an offer to buy the NYT that the NYT couldn't refuse???
NY times INVENTS the news.. they don't report the news.
HIT PIECE HIT PIECE HIT PIECE.
In the post-9/11 world, the US and the West could no longer glide along hoping that he was not developing a Nuke, not in a situation (between 1998 and 2002) when there were no UN inspectors in Iraq.
