Democrat U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller undermined pre-Iraq War intelligence and sitting President George W. Bush
This is a chilling revelation that tells us that Rockefeller, in effect, warned Saddam Hussein that 'the Americans are coming' long before Pres. Bush had, in fact, made a decision to do so or any announcement about it. Clearly, Saddam's ally and fellow terror sponsor, Bashar Assad of Syria, would have communicated this new gem of information to him in the form of a warning to get his weapons of mass destruction out of Iraq.
And satellite surveillance indicates that is exactly what occurred, followed by pre-war assistance from Russia to move caravans of loaded trucks from strategic Iraqi sites---into Syria. And trucks loaded with dis-assembled large weapons and military equipment have continued to remove similar strategic materials into Syria and Iran throughout the war against extreme Islamic fundamentalism in Irac---a war previously referred to as the 'War Against Terror," of which Iraq is now the main battlefront.
When Rockefeller took his pre-war trip to warn leaders in the Middle East, we were already at war in Afghanistan. And we don't have specific information about with whom Rockefeller spoke or exactly what all of their political, philosophical and religious positions and affiliations were.
Following in the footsteps of Sen. John Kerry, who conspired with the North Vietnamese Communist Viet Cong in the Vietnam War, and Sen. Edward (Ted) Kennedy, who conspired with U.S.S.R. President Leonid Breznev during the Cold War, Rockefeller conspired with people in Iraq's neighboring countries. All three undermined sitting U.S. presidents in time of war.
Kerry undermined Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon---and now President Bush #43. Kennedy undermined President's Johnson, Nixon and now Bush #43. Rockefeller undermined President George W. Bush (# 43). All three continue to undermine sitting President George W. Bush, our troops and the war effort. Do we see a Democrat pattern here???
I don't know what you call it, but I call it treason. We need answers from these self-appointed underminers of American Presidents and America's security---underminers of all of you and me and our duly elected leaders and safety. We don't need closet socialists running a shadow government in the United States of America to undercut the war against the terrorists who first declared war against us, politically "frag" our troops who are fighting them, and Vietnamize the on-going war. It's a war we must win.
I agree with William J. "Bill" Bennett, whose excellent article, "Rockefeller’s ConfessionWhat was the West Virginia Democrat doing as a freelancing prewar diplomat?" is excerpted below and can be read uncut here. We do need a thorough investigation of Rockefeller, his pre-war interference in U.S. intelligence and diplomacy, and his putting out false information still about how and why our Commander in Chief made the decision that a pre-emptive war with Iraq was necessary. Soooo...... bring it on!
"Yesterday, on Fox News Sunday, the following exchange took place between Chris Wallace and U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller, vice chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence:
WALLACE: 'Now, the President never said that Saddam Hussein was an imminent threat. As you saw, you did say that. If anyone hyped the intelligence, isn't it Jay Rockefeller?'
SEN. ROCKEFELLER: 'No. The — I mean, this question is asked a thousand times and I'll be happy to answer it a thousand times. I took a trip by myself in January of 2002 to Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria, and I told each of the heads of state that it was my view that George Bush had already made up his mind to go to war against Iraq — that that was a predetermined set course which had taken shape shortly after 9/11.'
While Democrats in Washington are berating the White House for having prewar intelligence wrong, a high-profile U.S. senator, member of the Select Committee on Intelligence, who has a name more internationally recognizable than Richard Cheney's, tells two putative allies (Saudi Arabia and Jordan) and an enemy who is allied with Saddam Hussein (Syria) that the United States was going to war with Iraq. This is not a prewar intelligence mistake, it is a prewar intelligence giveaway.
Syria is not only on the list of state sponsors of terrorism and the country many speculate is where Hussein has secreted weapons, it is also the country from which terrorists are flowing into Iraq to fight our troops and allies. Jordan and Saudi Arabia have had, over the years, conflicted loyalties. What was Senator Rockefeller doing? What was he thinking? And all this before President Bush even made a public speech about Iraq — to the U.N. or anyone else....
If Syria — or elements in Saudi Arabia — began acting on this information before we even went to war in Iraq (more than a year later), then Senator Rockefeller may have seriously harmed, impeded, and hindered our war efforts, our troops, and the entire operation in the Middle East. This should be investigated immediately; and perhaps Senator Rockefeller should step down from the Intelligence Committee until an investigation is complete...."
