"Top House Democrats, working in concert with anti-war groups, have decided against using congressional power to force a quick end to U.S. involvement in Iraq, and instead will pursue a slow-bleed strategy designed to gradually limit the administration's options.

Led by Rep. John P. Murtha, D-Pa., and supported by several well-funded anti-war groups, the coalition's goal is to limit or sharply reduce the number of U.S. troops available for the Iraq conflict, rather than to openly cut off funding for the war itself."

Funny, usually a person stabbed in the back will bleed quite fast, and profusely.

Had a GOP group planned such a vile tactic to sabotage Clinton's efforts in the Balkans, it would have been a national story until the next election, when the "unbelievably irresponsible" pols would have been targeted for righteous electoral annihilation.

But today's MSM just swallows it right up, and smiles dreamingly at Murtha, Pelosi, Obama, et. al.

Too bad for them The Blogosphere, like an elephant, never forgets. And like The Party, The Blogosphere has a thousand eyes.

In case you didn't hear about it, there is an article in today's Los Angeles Times "Current" opinion section by Saree Makdisi, titled "In the war of words, the Times is Israel's ally," which makes the statement that "recognition of Israel's right to exist" is a meaningless phrase.

Someone more eloquent than I needs to respond to this outlandish statement.

Well, thank heavens at least a few other patriotic folks out there have exposed this apologist for Jihadism, the fellow-travelling Saree Makdisi:

Man, the Bruin alumni seriously have his number, hehehe.

Thanks for the tip on this all-too-typical academia traitor.
