O'Reilly: "Powerful Forces" want to influence your vote
Powerful Forces Want to Influence Your Vote

Monday, October 09, 2006

By Bill O'Reilly

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,218761,00.html

While in Washington on Thursday, I was able to talk to some very well- informed people as well as read the latest dispatch from Stratford.com, perhaps the best information Web site in the country. This may surprise you, but the Iraq situation, the Foley scandal and the Woodward book all have one thing in common: November's election.

The war in Iraq has dramatically changed over the past year. No longer is the primary enemy there Al Qaeda and the Baathists. We are now fighting Iran. Last summer, the Bush administration was close to a deal that would have brought some stability to Iraq. Shia and Sunni Muslims were close to accepting a new government. But Iran, which now arms and controls some Shia terrorist militias, decided that shouldn't happen. And Iran's killer mercenaries began murdering Sunnis in greater numbers. The deal then fell apart.

Now Iran wants to keep the USA pinned down in Iraq so America cannot rally the opposition against Tehran for their nuclear ambitions and other things. It also wants to weaken President Bush in the upcoming election. You remember Iran destroyed Jimmy Carter's re-election chances in 1980 with the hostage fiasco. So now Iran has ordered its killers to up the violence in Iraq for the next month, believing that Americans will hold President Bush responsible and vote in the Democrats, who the Iranians believe are not as aggressive in foreign policy. On the Foley front, it's now clear the scandal was timed to put the GOP on the defensive, and it has. The unintended consequence of a congressman violating every ethical standard is that Foley not only destroyed himself but has also damaged his party.

Finally, the Bob Woodward book was released before the elections to give it maximum impact. Mr. Woodward, to his credit, acknowledges that. Talking Points believes voters should have as much information as possible before going to the polls, so I have no problem with the book. You can decide its validity. To help you do that, we have posted my interview with Bob Woodward on BillOReilly.com. You might want to check it out this weekend. Now by far, the most distressing part of this analysis is the Iranian connection. These brutal people are now driving the death and destruction inside Iraq and are trying to directly influence our elections here. That is outrageous. And that is The Memo.

9. It's like "Double Secret Probation"...
...he claimed he was at the TOP of Al Qaeda's "Death List" BEFORE the book came, so now they want to DOUBLE KILL him. That's right, they want to kill him, bring him back to life, and kill him a second time for writing that book.

Good thing Al Qaeda hasn't read "Those Who Trespass."

:evilgrin:

8. Let's see... who was it that traded arms for hostages?

And the Iranians timed the release of the hostages for when? Oh yeah, the very hour that RONALD REAGAN
took office. So just who are the "powerful forces" than could have engineered this "miracle"? Democrats?
Or maybe some very shady people that backed Reagan, Bush41 and Bush43.

People like Rupert Murdoch.

That's th thing about repressed republicans... they simply can't resist accusing the Democrats and liberals
of the very things they do themselves.
