The traitor gambit

Posted By on Tue, Jul 4, 2006 at 6:22 AM

The Rove administration's attack on the NY Times as a cover for its mistakes is old news, Brummett writes today. Shadow President Rove floated the traitor line four months ago in Arkansas, along with other red meat served at a Republican fund-raising dinner.

Now the White House and its Republican congressional allies say the Times has alerted our terrorist enemies and made our job in the war on terror harder.

But the professed idea from the beginning was to shut down Osama bin Laden's normal banking channels.

Let's put it this way: If these newspaper reports were news to bin Laden, we'd have caught the dumb rascal by now.

We haven't, you know, and it's been nearly five years. Perhaps that's why the Bush administration needs somebody to blame.
