Why I Am Angry About the Bush Revelations

Friday, 17 May 2002 12:00 AM

Many months after 9-11, the media suddenly want to hold President Bush accountable for what took place.

They are even invoking Watergate and the mantra of cover-up: "What did the president know and when did he know it?”

Don't get me wrong. I believe this president – and every president – should be held accountable to the American people for all the things that happen under his watch.

But I also believe the media should have demanded accountability immediately after 9-11.

In fact, they have yet to do so.

Since 9-11, congressional investigations have begun, but little has come of them so far.

It took five months –

He boldly told Congress there was nothing that could have been done to prevent the September tragedy.

The truth is evident for anyone with a brain: Nothing could have been done because of the catastrophic failure of our intelligence agencies, particularly the CIA and the FBI.

Immediately after 9-11, NewsMax revealed – we were the first – that during the Clinton years the CIA had stopped recruiting spies within the terrorist networks.

The media have gone to great lengths to avoid the story.

To date, they have yet to question, seriously and vigorously, Bill and Hillary Clinton for their actions in their eight years in the White House.

In President Bush's defense, he had arrived at the White House just months before 9-11.

But the media have not asked the Clintons, under whose watch the attacks were planned, why they failed us.

In this new era of Clintonian politics (and the Clintons still dominate the political scene), there is no accountability, especially if it involves Democrats.

Obviously, this is an election year, and the Democrats want to score as many points as possible against a very popular president.

Here we are witnessing the difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. Given the opportunity, the Democrats will always go for the jugular, while the Republicans will always try to take the high road.

It's not difficult to understand, then, why the Republicans are usually on the losing side.

The Democrats also have a very powerful ally in the establishment media, which always back them up.

The Roper Study found that 89 percent of the Washington press corps voted for Bill Clinton. Presumably, they would like to see Hillary in the White House as well.

The serious issue is not what the president knew and when he knew it.

The real question is why the American media gave Bill Clinton a free ride for eight years while he plundered national treasures such as the Lincoln Bedroom, politicized the FBI, gave away our nuclear and ballistic secrets to China, led the most corrupt administration in history – and yet and yet and yet, the liberal media have never viewed any of this as important.

Americans saw the results of the media's blatant failure to perform their job on 9-11.

I'm afraid that unless we take substantial action and find out who really was responsible for not preventing Sept. 11, future tragic events, more sensational than we have ever seen, will happen again. And this time we might not be so lucky.
