America Not Buying NIE

Rasmussen has a poll out showing only 18% of the country buys the liberal media spin on the NIE on Iranian nukes (H/T Drudge). Even most liberals don’t buy it! Just 18% of American voters believe that Iran has halted its nuclear weapons program. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 66% disagree […]

Plame Dives Into NIE Debate – Notes Fitzgerald Aiding Waxman Witch Hunt – Coincidence?

Intel Behind Iran NIE To Be Investigated

The liberal media is a bit upset their politicization of the latest NIE on Iran is not working, so they claim all those who raise legitimate doubts about the NIE are – of course – politicizing the NIE. Kettle, meet pot. We can see this in the way the SurrenderMedia portrays the debate. Their frustration […]
