You go to War with the Politicians you have
I was doing some research for tomorrow's news post and I came across this, and I feel it's worth a separate thread in itself:
This man is a Republican Representative. He is Vice Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, Vice Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee and he is the author of "Countdown to Terror: The Top-Secret Information that Could Prevent the Next Terrorist Attack on America...and How the CIA has Ignored It"
Today on Meet the Press this "expert" politician had this to say:
REP. WELDON: I've been raising this issue for the past two years. Iran is a major player. Ayatollah Khomeini, not the Iranian people, because they're not the problem. Ayatollah Khomeini's the problem. And he has a separate council of nine that's been fomenting unrest in Iraq during this entire time, and that's what's increasing. That's what's increasing dramatically as we attempt to stabilize the country.
MR. RUSSERT: Do you think we're in the last throes of the insurgency?
REP. WELDON: No, I don't. I think Iran is going to continue to escalate their building support so eventually, whatever government there takes hold is going to have to deal with Iran and eventually become a partner of Iran.
Mr Weldon, expert that you are, Ayatollah Khomeini died in June 1989
Mr Weldon, expert that you are, please advise us of the Iranian assisted insurgency?
