Helen Thomas gets Swiftboated

The title links to the story from Editor and Publisher on Scotty McClellan getting all judgmental on Helen Thomas. And Helen wondered what was up with the full body cavity searches she had to endure before each White House press briefing.
McCLELLAN: Well, Helen, the President recognizes that we are engaged in a global war on terrorism. And when you're engaged in a war, it's not always pleasant, and it's certainly a last resort. But when you engage in a war, you take the fight to the enemy, you go on the offense. And that's exactly what we are doing. We are fighting them there so that we don't have to fight them here. September 11th taught us --

THOMAS It has nothing to do with -- Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

McCLELLAN: Well, you have a very different view of the war on terrorism, and I'm sure you're opposed to the broader war on terrorism.

You go girl! If being honest about the situation means you are against the broader war on terrorism I guess that makes about 60% of the American public who want either a plan for, or immediate withdrawal from Iraq, a bunch of Islamo-extremist sympathizers. Clearly this course of action is not a part of the administrations plan in the war on terror. If simply stating the obvious truth means you don't support the war on terror, what does that truly say about our cause. To me it says we are being led by people who must rely on the public being misinformed in order to further their agenda.

Iraq was and is one of the worst blunders in warfare in human history. To attack a country that has no bearing in the struggle you are involved with and allow that unrelated conflict to become front and center in your effort to win the original war is just asinine. I feel certain of this one fact. History will judge this war as a failed and disastrous blunder by this administration. They are handing OUR mortal enemies a military victory, strengthening their ranks and fortifying their original prejudices by acting in this manner. We MUST win the war on terror, and the Iraqi debacle has been a devastating blow to our cause. A defeat not given us by the hand Al Queda, but a victory handed them by this administration. And those who think this are against the war on terror I ask? In my way of thinking, it is you Scott McClellan and your overseers who have harmed this cause, not the Helen Thomas' of the world.
