The MSM got lucky and was able to sweep the real news under the rug and instead, the MSM is on a ‘death watch’ of the accidental shooting of Harry Whittington. The real news is on our ex-Vice President, Al Gore.
He was recently in Saudi Arabia bashing the US and how we ‘mishandled’ suspects following the 9/11 tragedy. To the largely Arab audience (mostly taught at US universities, I might add) Gore is reported to saying:
"Unfortunately there have been terrible abuses and it's wrong," Gore said. "I do want you to know that it does not represent the desires or wishes or feelings of the majority of the citizens of my country."
I don’t think that that is true at all. The majority of the US voted for Bush and these mistreatments were exaggerated fallacies. Who’s to say that the citizens agree with Gore and not with Bush?
The best part of the story is what happens next. Yes, the Saudis agreed with him but they begin questioning our relationship with Israel. Gore declined to comment. The man can comment on anything but when it actually comes down to defending the country or offending his audience, he refuses. His reply to the inquisitors:
“We can't solve that long conflict in exchanges here."
It gets better! Peter Robinson, vice chairman of Chevron Corp, was there also making claims against the Bush Administration. If you recall, Bush promised a cut in dependency of Middle Eastern oil of 75% by the year 2025. This is what Robinson had to say:
"This notion of being energy independent is completely unreasonable," Robertson said at the economic forum, which opened Saturday.
"I believe Middle Eastern oil can and must play a certain role in the system," Robertson said. "Saudi Arabia's massive resources will continue to promote international energy security and serve as a moderating force in balancing supply and demand."
Boy, all these liberals claim that Bush has got a hand in the princes’ pockets but it looks like Chevron is really digging in there. In my eyes, both Gore and Robinson are traitors to the US. This kind of Bush/US bashing is ridiculous and must stop. This type of turmoil shows weakness to the enemy and both Hussein and Bin Laden want us to fight amongst each other. This is a time for cohesion not separation.
