I am officially pulling the hook out of my mouth. Enjoy the joke on me!
Folks, I am still a newbie blogger and I’m still human. And I am still laughing at this one. Sad thing is, it sounded so plausible!
I am trying to confirm this comment. But I trust the site posting this so I am going on the assumption this is accurate.
Russ Feingold must have a political death wish as he responds to the Bin Laden peace offering. He has to be infected with BDS to make the idiotic statement he apparently made today, as relayed by Protein Wisdom:
Russ Feingold was quick to blame the Bush adminstration of â€œBin Ladenâ€™sâ€ failure to spell out the condition of the truce in detail, pointing to the â€œchillâ€ in fruitful terrorist / US â€œconversationâ€ since the NYT broke the story about the NSA potentially spying on foreign agents and their embedded operatives.
â€œWhen this country surrendered its civil liberties for a modicum of security,â€ Senator Feingold informed a supportive crowd of students and faculty at George Washington University, â€œthe terrorists had already won. Todayâ€™s refusal on the part of al Qaeda to provide us with any information about the conditions of a potential truce simply reinforces that message: you canâ€™t fight terror by fighting terror in a way that fights terror unfairly..
â€œAs far as Iâ€™m concerned, George Bush is not only responsible for al Qaedaâ€™s ultimate victory. But now, these jihadists are just, yâ€™know, doing an elaborate, theocratic end zone dance that, had America not surrendered the moral highground, would most certainly be flagged by officias for excessive celebrationâ€”particularly the part where they lop of the head of that CS Monitor reporter.â€
Emphasis mine. Feingold says in one breath that we lost the war on terrorism, and now we don’t know hnow to sue for a truce because Bush was monitoring terrorists calls into the US….
Russ is desparate to surrender – because we lost! And he can’t figure out how because Bin Laden didn’t tell us how. He is angry at Bush because he made the terrorists angry and we will not get our chance for a truce (surrender).
I think Russ just lost his Senate seat.
