Pissing off Muslims: Newsweek vs Bush

Laura Bush...running into trouble.

I find it quite odd that the Newsweek retraction seems to be the biggest news as of right now because is supposedly cause 15 deaths and 30 injuries - weaking the relations between Pakistan and Afganistan and the USA.

Read this quote...


In Iraq, columnist Waleed Zubaidi writing in the Baghdad daily Azzaman said that
"it is really
sad and offensive to see the Bush team blaming Newsweek for why
Muslims hate the United States."
The "Bush administration's criticism of
Newsweek is a deliberate attempt to blame the U.S. media for its military
failures in both Iraq and Afghanistan," he wrote.
"U.S. policy, in Islamic
countries and worldwide, does not care much for religious feelings and their
impact on the Muslims' positions," wrote columnist Abdullah Iskandar for the
pan-Arabic daily
Al-Hayat "The U.S. did not seek, or failed to understand them,
when the campaign to improve Washington's image in the Arab world was launched."

Still think that Newsweek articles are why Muslims people are pissed?!

Yet, the "Smoking Gun Memo" which has gotten very little media attention. Outlines, how the Bush administration was "fixing the intellegence to match the policy for invading Iraq...". The British know about it and acknowledge their memo. The Bush Administration ignores it. The press won't even bring it up to Scott McLellan, spokesman for the White House.

We know the CIA even admitted to "Group Think" and fixing/data mining reasons to attack Iraq. We even have Richard Clark who surfaced before the conflict to point out that Rumsfeld, Rice, and Cheney were working to focus on Iraq.

The Whitehouse attacking the press for making war look bad, is nothing more than "The mother of all smoke screens".

This is another whitewash/diversion from the facts about the War in Iraq.
