WASHINGTON, March 7, 2006 - The will of the American people is the center of gravity for the war on terror, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said during a Pentagon news conference today.

Exaggerated reporting is giving the American people a false picture of what is happening in Iraq, the secretary said. "Interestingly, all of the exaggerations seem to be on one side," he said. "It isn't as though there simply have been a series of random errors on both sides of issues. On the contrary, the steady stream of errors, all seem to be of a nature to inflame the situation and to give heart to the terrorists and to discourage those who hope for success in Iraq."

Rumsfeld pointed to reporting that exaggerated the number of mosques attacked and the number of Iraqis killed in the violence that followed the bombing of the Golden Mosque in Samarra Feb. 22.

Fomenting a civil war was the impetus behind bombing the sacred shrine, and press stories exaggerating the violence that followed played into terrorists' hands, he said. "It has been and remains a time of testing for the Iraqi people, but the Iraqis are meeting that test thus far successfully, I would say, and defying the seeming rush to ... proclaim exactly what the terrorists seek, namely a civil war," he said.

We can add this to the list of MSM nonsense over the years.

  • Clinton was impeached over a personal matter = He lied under oath.
  • Tried to brush off AlGores collection of money from Buddhist nuns.
  • Tried to smear lies on Schwartzenegger two days before the California Governor's election
  • Bush lied about WMD's = he was misinformed as was every other world leader.
  • Rathergate Memo Forgery - (and he was allowed to quit when he still has not admitted it was a forgery)
  • Eason Jordon
  • Katrina victims are being raped and murdered in the stadium.
  • No "exit strategy" from Iraq
  • Ignoring Louisianna local and state complicity in Katrina and shoveling it onto the fed level.
  • Levees were breeched and Bush did not stop it.
  • Only half the story about the Dubai Ports World renting container terminals on the eastern seaboard.
  • Only half the story about what is really going on in the war against terrorism.
  • Only half the story about what is going on in Iraq.
  • POLLS!

prying1 sez: - I find it disgusting that these people running the MSM continually mislead their customers with only one side of so many issues. They take a poll and skew the contents with misleading questions and then only report the results they like. What this country needs is a good lawyer (space for a joke here) that is willing to set up a class action lawsuit against these jokers for fraud!
