Hillary Spreads Rove's Lie that Obama & Moveon opposed Afghanistan Military Action
Hillary Clinton Attacks MoveOn

http://firedoglake.com/2008/04/18/hillary-clinton-attac... /

The Huffington Post has Hillary Clinton on tape disparaging Barack Obama and his support from MoveOn, saying that the organization "didn't even want us to go into Afghanistan.

I've tried to stay out of the pie fights of late, but as a long-term defender of MoveOn and other progressive organizations -- this is completely unacceptable.

"MoveOn opposed military action in Afghanistan" is a Republican talking point, articulated specifically and purposefully by Karl Rove:

Rove went on to say that conservatives wanted to "unleash the might and power" of the military against the Taliban in Afghanistan, while liberals wanted to submit petitions. He cited a petition he said was backed by MoveOn.org that called for "moderation and restraint" in responding to the attacks.

"I don't know about you, but moderation and restraint is not what I felt as I watched the twin towers crumble to the earth, a side of the Pentagon destroyed and almost 3,000 of our fellow citizens perish in flames and rubble," he said, according to the text.

3. How did that military action go, by the way?
Seems to me we didn't catch OBL. We helped their heroine trade start back up and we are now mired in a quagmire that is slowly bleeding our nation of people and $$$$
