Guest Post: The Enemy Within

by Michael Gregory Steele and Herman B. Hayes

While Herman and I put the finishing touches on a political ad we hope to be premiering here this Friday, please enjoy the following guest post from my colleague and friend Robert S. Larkin:
On September 29th, 2006 President Bush made a statement in which he declared that those who criticize the war in Iraq are embracing the "enemy's propaganda."

What President Bush didn't make clear, and which he should have, is exactly whose propaganda the war critics are lapping up. While it is obvious that the propaganda is from Al Qaeda, it appears that most people have overlooked which faction of Al Qaeda has distributed it to the American people.

Perhaps President Bush didn't want to panic the American people by pointing out that the propaganda in the National Intelligence Estimate was written by United States government agencies.

You read that correctly. Our government has been infiltrated by Al Qaeda operatives and they are actively indoctrinating others in the government. This is not a new tactic. In fact, I have here in my hand a list of two hundred and five operatives that were known to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright as being members of Al Qaeda and who nevertheless were still working and shaping the policy of the State Department right before President Bush took office.

This is why as Americans we should be grateful that the Republican lead Congress has just passed a bill that eliminates habeas corpus, bans torture (a rather vague term if you ask me), and allows brutally effective interrogation techniques such as water boarding.

This new bill in conjunction with our domestic spying program will allow the President to weed out those within our ranks that are subverting the United States while allowing us to also extract reliable information by nearly drowning these traitors and obstructionists.

It is clear by the publication of the NIE that our greatest enemy is national intelligence and we must work tirelessly to cut this cancer from our society. We can all rest easier knowing that our government now has the tools to accomplish this.

President Bush's leadership in this area is clearly Americanism with its sleeves rolled up.

Mr. President, thank you for putting this nation on the right track.

Bob: I agree with you on who the enemy is and what we need to do to flush them out, but I take exception to something you said:

What President Bush didn't make clear, and which he should have, is exactly whose propaganda the war critics are lapping up.

Who are you to say what President Bush should and shouldn't do? Did we elect you President? I'm sorry, but I'm trusting President Bush's judgments in all matters, not some adviser that is upset that their recommendation was rejected.

I'm sure you are a good man if Michael and Herman let you post here, but I'm not going to tolerate any subversion, especially in our own ranks.

I'm glad that we agree on the major points. In regards to the sentence that you found objectionable I have to say that I was merely stating an opinion and was in no way being disrespectful of President Bush. I just feel that he should have taken the opportunity to clarify who is spreading this propaganda. I even stated earlier in the article that perhaps he was trying not to panic the American people. I really think you are reading too much into that statement.

I am always happy to hear from people and am glad that you expressed your views, but please refer to me as Robert in the future. Many people prefer Bob, but I've just never cared for that name.

Thank you,

Bobby: To even give the impression that you are in someway critical of President Bush is to give aid to the enemy. I'm sure this wasn't on purpose, but you should be mindful of it in the future. There are people that would seize upon your remark and use it to undermine President Bush's credibility and embolden the terrorists.

Perhaps if President Bush would learn proper elocution, this would go a long way towards convincing people that he is not the ignorant bumpkin hick he sometimes comes across as. Why, if I didn't know better, sometimes I would think that he talks that way on purpose, just to make people think he is just as ignorant as they are, and so will continue supporting him on that basis.

Of course, he has proven time and again that he is actually a man of deep, deep intellect. He just has a problem with public speaking.

I think he is working on the problem though, I am happy to say. In his press conference yesterday, for example, I noticed clear and convincing evidence that he is working on his speaking skills, and the results are impressive. For example, he once pronounced the word "rather" as "raw-ther"-the way a proper Connecticutt Yankee should pronounce it.

I have no doubt that just a few more weeks of training, and he will be able to speak loudly, clearly, and by God even coherently, about the traitorous enemies in our midst.

I understand your point of view, but the reality is that these un-American liberals twist people's words no matter how carefully crafted. Take for example Condi Rice's statement regarding Iraq in which she said, "…we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud."

Liberals twist this around and say that she was somehow inferring that Iraq would use a nuclear weapon on us if we didn't act. That's not what most people get out of that statement, but that's how they twist it.

I have to say that "Bobbie" is not really an improvement over "Bob."

Best regards,

The Pagan Temple,

Why would President Bush want to convince people of anything? You either know that he's right or you are a Godless traitor. Who wants to convince Godless traitors of anything?

In fact, I think someone wrote a book about this, but I can't quite recall the title. I do remember some hate group called the Jersey Girls attacking the author.

Power of pride,

Thank you. You are clearly a man of intelligence.

I am disturbed by the hateful views on these threads towards anyone who practices our right of freedom of speech.

This president has not done a thing to earn our trust and thus deserves none.

Torture is torture by any definition and the U.S. government has always possessed the right to spy on terrorists within and abroad...this torture bill recently passed is nothing more then a destruction of our Fourth Amendment right.

I urge you to begin thinking independently of your own right wing propaganda which only does a disservice to our nation's Constitution.

Godless traitor?
What does believing in God have to do with running a country or formulating public policy? Why is it that in the country that was founded based on the principles of liberty and freedom, people with differing opinions always get attacked? Is this country a monarchy or a democracy? So we push the issue of education, but when people actually go and educate themselves, expand their minds, and generate new thoughts, they get attacked and get called names like "traitor." It doesn't make any sense to me.

Aleyda: So, we are expected to just sit here and take the vitriol you leftist swine hurl at us? I don't think so Aleyda. You'd like nothing better than to have us sit on our hands while you execute us one by one in order to impose your Stalinist agenda on our children. Maybe when you put down your autographed copy of Mein Kampf we can have a nice rational discussion. Until that time, I for one will not let down my guard.


1) Only cowards post anonymously.
2) Public policy without God is called communism.
3) If you don't know what type of government we have then maybe you should move back to France.
4) Darwinism isn't education. It's blasphemy.
5) You are a traitor.
