Pulling a Rove or Anatomy of a Lie

CBS News is reporting that it is likely that Ashcroft’s “clear and present danger” speech yesterday was politically motivated. Homeland Security Secretary Ridge came out and all but denied any increased threat. So why would Ashcroft say these things? Spin of course. First Ashcroft draws a not-so-vauge correlation between the Madrid bombing and a potential attack here,

“The Madrid railway bombings were perceived by Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda to have advanced their cause,” said Ashcroft.

“Al-Qaeda may perceive that a large-scale attack in the United States this summer or fall would lead to similar consequences.”

So sayeth the shepherd, so sayeth the flock:

We know that the terrorists … are attempting to influence the elections in November,” Gibbons told The Associated Press. “Our sources and information tell us that the al-Qaida network is trying desperately.” —Rep. Jim Gibbons (R) NV

“I promise you this: if George Bush loses the election, Osama bib Laden wins the election. It’s that simple. It will be interpreted that way by enemies of the United States around the world.” —Rep. Tom Cole (R) OK

So, a vote for Kerry is a vote for Bin Laden? Do these guys know how transparent they are?
