Here's another pop quiz: Who said the following?
"I would say (we need to send another) 20,000 to 30,000 (troops to Iraq), for the specific purpose of making sure those (Islamist & insurgent) militias are dismantled, working in concert with the Iraqi military…
"(W)e certainly can’t leave Iraq and run the risk that it becomes (like) Afghanistan… (W)e could not allow Iraq to become a safe haven for Al Qaeda, for Hamas, for Hizbullah, or anybody else. We cannot allow Iran or Syria to have a free hand in there to further destabilize the Middle East.
"We’re all interested in getting out of Iraq. That’s a common goal. How we do it, I think, is the tough part. There are those that say, they don’t care what Iraq looks like once we leave there. ‘Let’s just leave there,’ (they say). And I argue against that. I don’t think that’s responsible. And I think it plays right into the hands of Syria and Iran.”
(a) President Bush
(b) Vice President Cheney
(c) Secretary of State Rice
(d) A representative of Halliburton
(e) A conservative Republican Senator or Representative
(f) Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity
(g) William Kristol / another signatory of the PNAC
(h) A FreeRepublic / TownHall “warmongering chickenhawk coward”
(i) Another “brainwashed fascist warmonger”
OK, I admit --- it was a trick question.
None of the above uttered that quote.
Scroll down for the real culprit.
Answer: Congressman Silvestre Reyes (D-Texas) said that, on December 6, 2006, shortly after it was announced that incoming “Speaker” Nancy Pelosi was going to appoint him to be Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. And unironically, Reyes's statement was made just before President Bush made almost the exact same statement --- an act that leading Democrats claimed he should be impeached for.
Which begs the question:
Is this why we haven’t heard anything further from Chairman Reyes?
The only people in the Democratic Party that we’ve heard from (almost exclusively) have been those who’ve echoed the party line of defeat, surrender and withdrawl.
Stay tuned to JQWorld in the next few days for a new, blockbuster analysis of the shameless way in which the rabid left in America:
Has been so instrumental in subverting the American military's efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and encouraging our enemies .
Hopes to use such lies and propaganda in preparation for and after the release of "The Petraeus Report," to snatch a final, definitive defeat from the jaws of the remarkable progress that US forces have been making in those theaters
