EXCLUSIVE: Bush administration to release tapes that could incriminate Iraq.

Jan. 31 — The Bush administration is preparing to release supersensitive electronic intercepts obtained by the National Security Agency that officials say prove that Iraq has repeatedly lied to United Nations inspectors, plotted among themselves about how to conceal weapons material and even appeared to boast afterward at their success in doing so, NEWSWEEK has learned.

Time is not necessarily reliable--particularly when Isikoff writes the story.

Neither is Lion's Cub. (It's from Newsweek.)

I am convinced, more than evr, that most liberals and democrats should be tried for treason. They could care less about the security of America. They are more concerned about their baby-killing pro-gay agenda than they they are in the preservation of this great republic. Thank God we still have leaders like George W. Bush and England's Tony Blair that are willing to display leadership in these crazy times. I get sick to my stomach every time I see a sneering Tom Daschle or a sniveling Pelosi trying to disparage our President. I hope this party of treason loses every seat in 2004!

re: Adlai Stevenson...

If Stevenson were a Repub & took the same photos to the U.N. today, the dims would rebut by saying that "the missiles aren't actually aimed at us..."

I agree with you,,everyone, even me who knows nothing, knows NSA spies and listens in on all phone conversations and lord knows what else, that is no secret. I don't think they even need a bug or a spy,,just a phone line or a satellite. This is common knowledge

Saddam has already given the Dems their talking points: the tapes were fabricated, misinterpreted, or inconclusive. Wanna lay odds?.....

You have it exactly. The 'RATS are setting themselves up to lose more power in 2004. Keep it up, 'RATS !

Democrats are a strange bunch especially their leaders. They complain about politics of personnel destruction when that is how they try to divide the country. They have little pride in America, it seems that the American people serve for their pleasure only. If you don't cotton to the democratic line, you aren't American. They used the surplus for other countries and other people when there was much to do here at home. They take our best technologies and sell them to nations that will use the knowledge against us. They lack an enormous amount of integrity and don't seem to care as they flaunt sleazy ethics and morality in our faces.

We didn't have a government for the people under the Clinton administration, what we had was a Democrats Only need apply type of government and now they are attempting to replace a People's Government with their tired old arguments about an education system they didn't fix in 8 years, a health care program they messed up and couldn't fix in 8 years, a social security system they say needs fixing and did nothing about it in 8 years when in reality that system is fine as long as lawmakers don't spend the money that social security is meant for; they spent 8 years hiring federal workers with no qualifications as long as it meant a democratic vote leaving behind a dumbed down, bloated army of sleazy federal laborers who have plundered their departments of millions in dollars and equipment.

Democrats seem to have no respect, no real base from which true justice can spring, only justice that bends for them. They have no enthusiasm for country/nation, no pride, just the spoils from a rich nation for the DNC. They continue to huddle with shady and corrupt people both here in America and abroad for reasons that only benefit them. They are elitists and exclude the real Americans as they race for the Marxist Utopia they have dreamed about...where individual successes are discouraged in favor of a commune like population. They have learned nothing from failed socialism or failed communism; they still want to live like kings all the while painting a glowing picture of togetherness for the masses who work for them. It is called Slavery, servitude to a few at the top, domination over the people through higher taxes and rules and regulations. Democrats want a Unionized nation/world of bondage and they can surely have it by dividing the country with the deceptive lies they and the press propagandize with daily.

Stand tall Americans and stand firmly for the principals of our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, both of which are like the fabled Vampires silver cross or spike to the leading democrats, they don't want you to have either; it is these people who would return this country to the quagmire of corruption of the Clinton/Gore/Reno years.

You could slam Eleanor Clift's head several times onto an Iraqi nuke and she still wouldn't accept that they exist

I'm SURE someone's already suggested we try anyway, just to make sure....

I don't think they even need a bug or a spy,,just a phone line or a satellite. This is common knowledge.

They listen to whom they *want* to listen to - because it would take *significant* resources, manpower and equipment to 'listen to everybody' -

- as it *would* take *real* connections, *real* access to infrastructure, etc, to monitor *every* 'phone call' in progress and every "phone call" is *not* connected from point A to point B via satellite during a call -

- WIRE or FIBER OPTICS are by far the cheaper means used to inter-tie local local phone exchanges via the ;ong-distance networkd ... even overseas calls (ever remember hearing the term trans-atlantic cable?) are via cable ...

The rest, the hype, is common mis-information ...

Nothing will change the liberal mind. If, for example, the inspectors were to find the proverbial "smoking gun, even a nuclear one, then the liberals would claim that is proof that the inspections are working and should be allowed to continue. Such a discovery would be cited as proof that we do not need to invade Iraq.

I do dislike that channel of information but if Echelon can be a tool to monitor fill in the blank for __________ < fill in this blank , surely our superior technology can work and be applied to the reverse .

It is time to do what is obvious .

Echelon Rocks!

More likely we've been just been redacted personnel at redacted redacted to redacted and redacted.

Oh well, you are probably right but I like my fantasy better!!! I am sort of technology challenged so I imagine sci-fi like qualities to our spy agencies.
