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...
No, but I've seen their playbook...
I can not imagine being positive for us.
MY GOD, I'm so fed up with this kind of crap from the NYSLIMES! I'm sick to death how W administrations is helpless to bring these bastard leakers to accountability!! YOU know this is going to be a hit piece on the Republicans!
This will be Rove's November surprise.
Certain individuals at the Slimes have been told that they are in deep, deep trouble for the leaks, and they have been offered a get-out-of-jail-free card if they finally publish something accurate about Saddam's WMD programs (including the Syrian connection).
Just a wild theory.
Clinton took out all the nukes with his cruise missile attacks, Bush went to war against a toothless enemy...page 1 /sarcasm
In fairness (gag, choke) to the Slimes, they had the NSA spying story in October 2004, and buried in until 2005 instead of publishing right before the election. End of fairness to them. They held it not to help Bush, but to give the author time to write a book to bundle along with the article. It was financial, not moral, but they did hold that story and they could have done it before the election. They also might have figured it would have given the President more votes.
This means that the attempt by Wolf Blitzer today to return to Mark Foley (interviewing Reynolds) didn't cut it.
Your theory is the best so far.
I'm thinking its a possibility. Didn't I just see that their circulation numbers for NYTimes and Boston Globe fell again? Maybe this is the start of a campaign to try to bring some moderate-to-conservatives into their camp by cozying up to them before an election. Or, just as likely, they have a big story that their "inner reporter" conscience is just itching to tell
Hilarious. Yesterday, MSNBC had a news flash crawl saying that Foley was going to remain in rehab! Big News, LOL.
I hope you don't mind if I borrow your post and use it on another forum. :-)
What I would love (but I'm sure not expecting it) is if some reporter(s) developed evidence that Iraq collaborated with Libya and/or Syria on nuke programs, and even though the NY Slimes hates to be the bearer of such news, they would not dare suppress it.
However, what goes against that (beside the treasonous and despicable nature of Pinch, Keller, et al) is that in such a scenario they would NEVER publish just 4 days before a national election - they would have gotten it out there long ago, or else they would hold the story until after Nov. 7.
We will be in suspense now until more info hits the web....
Wolf is just jealous he never received any emails or chat messages from Foley.
And, Wolf is still waiting for Shep's call.
I want some of whatever you're smoking.
I would LOVE it if this were the case. Unfortunately, we're talking about the Slimes and they don't understand being put in peril - even when it's their own.
OTOH, The Times is so screwed, you might be gloating tomorrow.
Ha! Help yourself...
I will not assume anything, but with the Times, it is hard not to. Could mean many things. I have my thoughts that it will surprise me (and not be negative to Repubs).
A few weeks back, a FReeper whose name I unfortunately forget, posted something about being aware (from unnamed sources, of course) that there was something big about to happen in connection with a grand jury that was investigating the leaks.
The USA under a Republican President gave the Nuke Bomb know how to Iraq during the Iraq-Iran War in the 1980's and the current Bush administration tried to cover that up. IE, USA is responsible for Iraq's WMD if any are found.......
I recall that as well, I believe.
We shall see.
The forum is mostly made up of U.S. liberals and Eurotrash so I try to annoy them whenever the opportunity arises. (Too bad, it was a nice place when I joined 6+ years ago.)
Hit piece on Bush coming
There is no other news template for the NYT's
Even if it a positive Iraq development, it will be presented as something Bush didn't do right
Prost terug bij u!
Its all part of a sting op by the Pentagon; they created this super-duper top secret story on nukes and Iraq, gave it to a few individuals so they could track down the leaker. HA!!!
Something tells me that this may be an Al QaQaa story: "Plutonium Went to Syria: Bush Is Incompetent". Just a hunch...".
That would be a story in itself - the Administration forcing the NYT to publish a story. They wouldn't go along, but they would publish a story about the threat.
I don't see that happening. It wouldn't be smart for the Administration, and it wouldn't work anyway.
They're going to bash Bush. The Times is going to take some old news, add in some "whistleblower" that should have spoken out years ago if he really had anything, and make it tomorrow's headline story.
Now THAT would be great!
I have been hoping and expecting the "flop" of cards in October from the WH....What better place to put it than the NY Times who hates Bush...It also means "They" cant ignore it...I hope I am right
Proof of nukes in Iraq would be nice.... and maybe we do have Osama in the WH basement
You may be correct, but do not they prove then that Saddam had a nuclear program and President Bush was right in taking him out? I think so.
Simple, They will expose that Our Troops did find Iraqi Nukes and That President Bush secretly has hidden that from the American public since the invasion.
Expect a lengthy diatribe on how President Bush betrayed the public trust by not telling the country that Saddam did indeed have nuclear weapons and that some of those weapons were transfered into Al Queda's hands just before the invasion and are presently unaccounted for.
Followed by of course if we hadn't invaded Iraq, Saddam never would have given Al Queda the nukes it needed to launch a nuclear attack against us at will.
The summary will of course call for the immediate impeachment of the President.
This is an orchestrated "leak" or more likely release of classified docs...timing timing
If Saddam did have nukes, they would almost surely have had Russian markings on them. If not Russian, then what? French?
My first reaction was hopeful optimism. EVEN seeing the NYT mentioned. If a story was REALLY big, I could see sources in the WH giving the Times' the story.
I`ll place my bet,
PROPAGANDA HIT PIECE FOR THE DEMOCRATS.
That is a good theory. The Slimes could release it 4 days before the elction in the hopes that the voters will not soon enough recognize the cognitive dissonance involved in believing that Saddam did not have WMD, on the one hand, and that Saddam passed WMD to Al Queda, on the other.
Yeah, under the fold on page A22
Second your assessment. These weasels learned to implement better timing in order to take any momentum out.
Brace yourselves this could be a sucky unproductive weekend thanks to the DNC prison bitches at the NYT-
It can be nothing but that. The press will go crazy like the DUI. I will royally piss folks like me off.
jveritas Has translated documents that hint at a nuclear device test as well as the burial of slave labor victims involved in the test, if I remember correctly.
