See today's Colorado Springs Gazette where my letter to the editor appears (scroll down to "Left Ignores Facts in Debate"). As you'll see it focuses on two issues: the first is the resilience of the liberals' revisionist instincts with respect to pre-Iraq war intelligence; the second, House Speaker Pelosi's pathetic prevarications concerning notification by the CIA of the enhanced interrogation techniques that had been implemented.
Now that Iraq is becoming a relatively stable nation, with the promise of being the first legitimate democracy in the Middle East (apart, of course, from Israel), the left remains intellectually mired in its fantasy land where conservatives misled a naive nation into war. It will be fascinating to watch as their story is serially revised to include progressively candid admissions of success, which, for the common folk, is already impossible to ignore.
President Obama is leading that initiative with his occasional concessions made in unguarded moments, noting that the much maligned surge has worked. It's kind of difficult not to admit it since he's using the exact same strategy in Afghanistan.
The Pelosi matter is a real delight and conservatives pray her speakership continues right up to the 2010 mid-term elections, with Congressional hearings sprinkled here and there to keep the issue front and center. Political chameleons, who try to finesse their way out of every self-made contradiction, are an unsightly lot, and she's a textbook example.
