"THE STATE OF OUR UNION IS STRONG !"

In his sixth State of the Union Address last night President Bush declared the strength of our Union. This statement is typically at the beginning of most State of the Union Addresses but the President chose last night to appropriately end his annual report to the Congress with this statement about our nation. The speech covered a myriad of initiatives ranging from decreasing our oil energy consumption by 20% in the next ten years to a payroll deduction program for health care designed to allow the uninsured through eliminating the deduction according to family or single status at a certain income level thus allowing a savings in payroll taxes substantial enough to allow for the purchase of health insurance. This was combined with a usual laundry list that the President would like to see pass through Congress but with the Democrats in the majority passage possibilities are slim unless Bush can find some of the newly elected to side with his proposals. With Nancy Pelosi in the House and Harry Reid in the Senate opposing anything that comes from the White House this is not likely since they have a strong arm hold of loyalty from the newly elected.

Now to the portion of the Address that was most anticipated, the war and especially the troop increase that is being instituted by the President. Several times during this portion of the Address which encompassed that last nearly half hour of the speech President Bush made several references to the war and not only the necessity of victory but outlined the consequences for The United States and the Middle East if the war effort were to fail. Many of the victory references were directed to the fight against the common enemy and not mentioning the, "new strategy, " nor Iraq just the defeat of terrorism and those that use it as a means to attempt to force their radical Islamic beliefs of others. A very telling reaction on the part of Democrats occurred in three specific moments during these references to victory or achieving a goal that leads to success in the war. The Democrats not only did not acknowledge the call for victory with a standing ovation as Republicans and the Gallery did but they would not even clap in response to the call.

The first of these calls to victory stated, "With the distance of time, we find ourselves debating the causes of conflict and the course we have followed. Such debates are essential when a great democracy faces great questions. Yet one question has surely been settled... that to win the war on terror we must take the fight to the enemy." This was greeted by a standing ovation by everyone.....except Democrats who sat on their hands and their butts!

The second call to victory was, "The great question of our day is whether America will help men and women in the Middle East to build free societies and share in the rights of all humanity. And I say, for the sake of our own security ...Wee must." Again met with a standing ovation by all except Democrats who repeated their seat warming gestures.

The third came when the President mentioned a nuclear Iran, "The United Nations has imposed sanctions on Iran, and made it clear that the world will not allow the regime in Tehran to acquire nuclear weapons." Again met with a standing ovation by all except Democrats who even with the mention of their beloved United Nations their only response was to warm their seats.

While I did not expect the Dems to respond favorably to anything concerning the battlefield of Iraq because of their opposition to our presence there and their lack of the acceptance of the fact that it too is a theatre in the War against terrorism, their lack of responsee simply to the idea of victory blatantly proves that victory is not only excluded from their vocabulary but is not something that they desire or a policy that they favor but an action in which they oppose. This seat warming response to American victory in the war gave evidence that surrender is the creed of Democrats and withdrawing without victory is their only goal.

After introducing wonderful examples of Americans who shine forth the essence of who we are through their love of country, entrepreneur spirit and heroism both at home and in the ranks of Americas finest as represented by Silver Star recipient Sergeant Tommy Rieman, President Bush closed The State of the Union address with these words of inspiration, " We have been through a lot together. We have met challenges and faced dangers, and we know that more lie ahead. Yet we can go forward with confidence.... because the State of our Union is strong ... our cause in the world is right ... and tonight that cause goes on, God bless!"

President Bush gave a wonderful address last night. I think it was one of his best.

It's the Democrat response that I take issue with. Who does Jim Webb think he is saying "The Majority of The Military" feel they have been taken down the wrong path? When did he talk to the "Majority" of the Military? Has he talked to 100,000 of the Troops? I doubt it.

I think he needs to explain that statement, and provide evidence supporting it!

I certainly wouldn't mind seeing his evidence. If he cites "veterans for Cindy Sheehan", I'll pee in my pants laughing.

He talked to "the Majority of the Military" did he? Well I talked to Patton's ghost last night, and I can't tell you what Patton said regarding both Jim Webb's statement and the Democrat's reaction to President Bush's State of the Union. The reason I can't tell you is because Patton swears a lot! If Webb doesn't have to prove his claim, then neither do I! ;)

Good post, Ken. Thanks! :)

OK, that was the lamest speech in the history of speeches. How is it that anyone can lend even a spare scrap of credibility to a guy that lies his way through EVERYTHING?!? For instance, why is it that after five years of the most corrupt congress ever did he bring up congresssional earmarks? Especially after the Democrats just passed the only legislation introduced in all that time to fix it? He's so out of touch it's scary.

Stop talking about Harry Reid with such disrespect vern!

He's doing the best he can to stuff his pants with more cash than Sandy Berger did secret documents.

We can't all pile on him at once.

Former head worldwide intelligence gathering Defense Intelligence Agency-Bogus evidence

U.S. Insiders Say Iraq Intel Deliberately Skewed
by Jim Wolf

WASHINGTON - A growing number of U.S. national security professionals are accusing the Bush administration of slanting the facts and hijacking the $30 billion intelligence apparatus to justify its rush to war in Iraq.

A key target is a four-person Pentagon team that reviewed material gathered by other intelligence outfits for any missed bits that might have tied Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to banned weapons or terrorist groups.

This team, self-mockingly called the Cabal, "cherry-picked the intelligence stream" in a bid to portray Iraq as an imminent threat, said Patrick Lang, a former head of worldwide human intelligence gathering for the Defense Intelligence Agency, which coordinates military intelligence.

That agency was "exploited and abused and bypassed in the process of making the case for war in Iraq based on the presence of WMD," or weapons of mass destruction, he added in a phone interview. He said the CIA had "no guts at all" to resist the allegedly deliberate skewing of intelligence by a Pentagon that he said was now dominating U.S. foreign policy.

U.S. intelligence "simply wrong"

The New York Times reported that Secretary of State Colin Powell on Friday fiercely defended the intelligence used by the Bush administration to justify war against Iraq. Powell told the Times that he spent several late nights poring over the CIA's reports because he knew the credibility of the country and the president were at stake.

Vince Cannistraro, a former chief of CIA counterterrorist operations, said he knew of serving intelligence officers who blame the Pentagon for playing up "fraudulent" intelligence, "a lot of it sourced from the Iraqi National Congress of Ahmad Chalabi."

That group, which brought together groups opposed to Saddam, worked closely with the Pentagon to build a for the early use of force in Iraq.

"There are current intelligence officials who believe it is a scandal," he said in a telephone interview. They believe the administration, before going to war, had a "moral obligation to use the best information available, not just information that fits your preconceived ideas."

The top Marine Corps officer in Iraq, Lt. Gen. James Conway, said Friday U.S. intelligence was "simply wrong" in leading military commanders to fear troops were likely to be attacked with chemical weapons in the March invasion of Iraq that ousted Saddam.

CIA head denies charges

Richard Perle, a Chalabi backer and member of the Defense Policy Board that advises Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, defended the four-person unit in a television interview.

"They established beyond any doubt that there were connections that had gone unnoticed in previous intelligence analysis," he said on the PBS NewsHour Thursday.

A Pentagon spokesman, Marine Lt. Col. David Lapan, said the team in question analyzed links among terrorist groups and alleged state sponsors and shared conclusions with the CIA.

"In one case, a briefing was presented to director of Central Intelligence Tenet. It dealt with the links between Iraq and al-Qaida," the group blamed for the Sept. 2001 attacks on the United States, he said.

George Tenet denied charges the intelligence community, on which the United States spends more than $30 billion a year, had skewed its analysis to fit a political agenda, a cardinal sin for professionals meant to tell the truth regardless of politics.

"I'm enormously proud of the work of our analysts," he said in a statement on Friday ahead of an internal review. "The integrity of our process has been maintained throughout and any suggestion to the contrary is simply wrong."

Tenet sat conspicuously behind Colin Powell during a key Feb. 5 presentation to the U.N. Security Council arguing Iraq represented an ominous and urgent threat - as if to lend the CIA's credibility to the presentation, replete with satellite photos.

House to re-evaluate data

Powell told the Times on Friday that the accuracy of the pre-war assessments was proven by the discovery of two Iraqi trailers that the CIA and Pentagon have concluded were designed to produce deadly germs. Powell presented drawings of suspected mobile biological labs to the United Nations in February.

"You should have seen the smile on my face when one day the intelligence community came in and gave me a photo, and said 'look,' " Powell said on Friday. "And it was almost identical to the cartoon that I had put up in New York on the 5th of February."

But doubts about the accuracy of the prewar intelligence have spread in Congress. In a letter sent last week to Tenet, the House intelligence committee said it intends "to re-evaluate" U.S. intelligence on Iraq's weapons programs and links to terrorists.

"Top-down" intelligence

Greg Thielmann, who retired in September after 25 years in the State Department, the last four in the Bureau of Intelligence and Research working on weapons, said it appeared to him that intelligence had been shaped "from the top down."

"The normal processing of establishing accurate intelligence was sidestepped" in the runup to invading Iraq, said David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector who is president of the Institute for Science and International Security and who deals with U.S. intelligence officers.

Anger among security professionals appears widespread. Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, a group that says it is made up mostly of CIA intelligence analysts, wrote to President Bush May 1 to hit what it called "a policy and intelligence fiasco of monumental proportions."
