A couple of weeks ago, I caught some heat for saying that the Republican Administration intentionally threw out the term "al Qaeda" in connection with the alleged plot to blow up a bunch of jets heading from London to the U.S. when there was no evidence to support it. I called it the Culture of Fear - keep us scared so we won't question the President's actions. Well, here's a clip of exactly the same thing. Van Taylor is some Texas spare running for Congress who appeared on the Chris Matthew Show. He starts off by firing off a hot sports opinion that Al Queda is in Iraq and that's what the battle is about. Of course, that's a load of crap since all the bloodshed is due to the beginning of a civil war between the Shiites & Sunnis.
Thankly Thankfully, Chris Matthews hands this guy his arse.
Edit: Sheesh, you guys are tough.
