Operation Fat Ankles
It's bad enough that our troops in Afghanistan have to spend Thanksgiving without their families. Now they have to grin and bear a visit from the very scoundrel who, along with her adolescent husband, treated the American military like dirt for 8 years.
Hillary Clinton is en route to Afghanistan to "spend Thanksgiving" and "to ask questions about the ongoing nation-building efforts," the NY Post reports. After ruining the holiday for the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan, Hillary is scheduled to annoy more troops in Iraq.
One quote from the New York carpetbagger regarding her "fact finding" mission ...
I'm still very worried about Afghanistan . . . The Taliban and al Qaeda are clearly making a comeback
Liar, liar, pantyhose on fire!
And this lie is a whopper. The chances of the Taliban and al-Qaeda "making a comeback" in Afghanistan are [running the numbers] zero. Yet, Hillary says it's "clearly" happening.
Hillary's lie has an intended implication: that the U.S. military has failed in its Afghan mission. But rather than saying that directly, she cowardly announces that our enemies in Afghanistan are winning. And, most appalling of all, she told this lie in the context of concern for the troops.
So why commit such a scurrilous untruth? Political desperation. The Democrats have run out of domestic and foreign policy issues to use against W in the 2004 presidential campaign. So they're attempting to characterize a rousing success as a dismal failure--even at the expense of national security and troop morale.
By the way, this is a typical Clintonesque statement. Note her use of the vague, subjective phrase "making a comeback". What does that mean? She'll never say. If Hillary were to define the meaning of such fuzzy phrases, she would risk accountability. And knowing that the Clintonphile media will never press her for specifics, her penchant for mendacity accrues.
