This is a video form Youtube. I suspect a lot of you have seen it, I assume most of you have heard of this now famous quote from Martha Coakley. She weighs in at the :40 mark.
The narrative by the poster, mghoft, accompanying the video is this:
On Wednesday December 30 Jordanian doctor and Al-Qaeda blogger Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi killed 7 CIA officers in a suicide bomb attack at an outpost in southeastern Afghanistan. Before he murdered the Americans in Afghanistan he recorded a tape with the local Taliban leader. The Taliban released the tape after his death.
On Monday Senate Candidate Martha Coakley told Massachusetts voters that it was time to pull out of Afghanistan. The Taliban was "not there" anymore.
"I think we have done what we are going to be able to do in Afghanistan. I think that we should plan an exit strategy. Yes. I'm not sure there is a way to succeed. If the goal was and the mission in Afghanistan was to go in because we believed that the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists. We supported that. I supported that. They're gone. They're not there anymore."
She's not just wrong- She's dangerous.
In his "martyrdom" tape Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi warned that the attacks would spread outside of the Pakistan-Afghanistan region.
But Martha Coakley says they're not there anymore.
Obviously she's an idiot and appears to be just as qualified for the Senate as Obama is for the Presidency.
My question though is, where the Hell is Chris Matthews on this? Where are all of the other Palin bashers? Why aren't they labeling this woman an idiot, unqualified, dangerous?
Anyone reading this have a clip of Matthews or any other lib idiot reporter making snide remarks about this? Anyone have a clip of a lib idiot reporter even acknowledging it? I wrote this on Wednesday, I have to work Thursday. As of this writing, there is not a mention of her ignorant remark on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, or CNN. Ironically though, they all had articles about Sarah Palin and derisive articles about her joining Fox.
