Lies, Damned Lies and Democrat Spokespeople

Mike Taylor reponds to a piece in the Weekly Standard Meet Larry Johnson The CIA official turned Democratic spokesman has a pre-9/11 mindset. by Gary Schmitt :

This article may be of interest to those of us who delight in watching the Democrats shoot themselves in the foot… repeatedly:

Just as the Democrats have chosen to stand beside Michael Moore (proven liar) and Joe Wilson (proven liar), now they selected Larry Johnson of the CIA to give their recent weekly radio address. Where do you think Mr. Johnson stands in regard to the truth?

Johnson “excoriated” Karl Rove for “outing” a CIA officer on that Democratic radio address. Already we know that this guy is not telling the whole truth, (if Rove did out Plame, don’t you think the Special Prosecutor would tell Rove he’s a “target” in the investigation?). But Johnson’s past is intriguing. As this article by Gary Schmitt describes, Mr. Johnson has been a favorite CIA commentator among the Left.

Johnson wrote an Op-Ed piece in the NY Times on JULY 10th, 2001 entitled…. "The Declining Terrorist Threat" in which he argued that Americans were "bedeviled by fantasies about terrorism" and, in truth, had "little to fear" from terrorism...”

Two months later, Mr. Johnson was proved wrong. In extremely dramatic fashion. In fact, I don’t think you can get MORE wrong than Mr. Johnson.

Also in Mr. Schmitt’s article: Johnson appeared on PBS’s “Frontline” program in 1999 to play down the threat from Osama bin Laden. According to Mr. Johnson, "Osama bin Laden . . . has not been a very effective organizer or leader. He talks a great game."

Of course, the Democrats choose this prescient analyst as their spokesperson. Perhaps if the PIAPS (Princess in a Pantsuit) gets elected, Mr. Johnson could get a job running the CIA. He seems to be qualified as many other Democrats. He’s from the Michael Moore School of Terrorist Studies where the motto is “There is no terrorist threat… there is NO terrorist threat!”
