Bush: “Taliban no longer is in existence.”

(Via David Weinberger:)

“That’s why I said to the Taliban in Afghanistan: Get rid of al Qaeda; see, you’re harboring al Qaeda. Remember this is a place where they trained — al Qaeda trained thousands of people in Afghanistan. And the Taliban, I guess, just didn’t believe me. And as a result of the United States military, Taliban no longer is in existence.” [Bush, 9/27/04]

There’s estimates that 90 percent of the country — at least a very large percent of the country, is under the occupation of the Taliban and the warlords.” [Rep. Paul (R-TX)., Remarks to House Committee on International Relations, 9/23/04]

Methinks somebody needs a reality check here….

I know lying is common in politics, especially before an election, but somehow this is the worst I’ve seen yet – personal attacks, totally focussed on military issues (it’s the economy, stupid!), campaign signs being stolen – and this is supposed to be the world’s model democracy???

  4. You guy’s should spend time giving your aperently supremly educated points of view on on a much larger forum for inumerable amounts of money. You are obvoisly so well informed that you needen’t heed what the presedent or congress or ranking officers say about war in general. Stop and think for two seconds about what kind of slap in the face it is to those of us who obvously don’t want war but on the other hand understand it is necassary sometimes. You incenuate that we love what happens in war just because we don’t spend all our time bashing the leader of our country. You have the luxery of looking at all the past wars with hindsight. However instead of trying to understand that it takes big balls to make an unpopular decision that will undoubtedly spern{scholors like the one’s running this web site} to forever bitch about humen rights and cruelty. Instead You spend your time trying to pretend that in the same situation you woulden’t have wet yourself or been under the table{“not having sexual relations with a fat intern”} Undoubtly there are some of you mush heads that served your country on the battle field, and if so great your not useless. What I would say to you though is that if you want to have an educated opinion on what happened during all the wars the US has fought do some reaserch. I gurentee that if the south had one the civil war you folks would be the same people that would be complaining about how the north should have never tried to abolish slavery and that innocent lives didn’t need to be lost. As a matter of fact If we hadn’t fought and won our independance, you mind-dwarfs would probably be eating pastries and burning pictures of tony blair. Chew that one for a bit you anti Bush anti America half wits
