Helen Thomas

It was announced today that 89 year old reporter Helen Thomas was retiring.
You've probably seen her during Presidential press conferences, since she has been a White House correspondent for many years.
The thing that precipitated her (forced) retirement were her comments after the recent incident with the "flotilla" that Israel should get out of Palestine, and that the Jews should leave Israel and go to Germany or the United States.

Good riddance, Helen!

Former President George W. Bush said that he has no regrets about waterboarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Former President George W. Bush said Wednesday that he has no regrets about waterboarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, saying that, if presented with the same opportunity, he’d “do it again.”

Bush made the comments in reference to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the accused mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks who was waterboarded after his capture, during a speech to the Economics Club of Grand Rapids in Michigan. The remarks were first reported by the Grand Rapids Press.

“Yeah, we waterboarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed,” Bush said. “I'd do it again to save lives.”

Karl Rove, the ex-president's former top political adviser, has frequently defended the use of waterboarding, telling the BBC in March that he is “proud” of the practice.

Bush also defended his decision to invade Iraq during the speech, despite the fact that weapons of mass destruction were never found.

“Getting rid of Saddam Hussein was the right thing to do, and the world is a better place without him,” the former president said.

While Bush defended his administration during the speech, he declined to criticize President Barack Obama when asked about his replacement during a question and answer session.

“You are not going to see me in the public square criticizing the president,” Bush said.

Here are my comments ont he story (Politico)
Too bad he can't come back and waterboard Pelosi, Reid, Clinton,
Obama and Biden...as well as a few others. The liberals, Obama,
and all Democrats could learn a thing or two about CLASS from
President Bush about not criticizing the current President, that's
a class move. Maybe somebody should forward this to Paul McCartney,
because he obviously has no CLASS EITHER.

the flotilla commander, who answered an Israeli warning, with the words, "Go back to Auschwitz".................We could ordinarily forgive Helen on the basis of probable senile psychosis, but many of our well known, long term White House correspondents confirmed yesterday, that her anti-semitic sentiments were well known, a long way back in her history.

Her parents

Her parents were immigrants from Lebanon.
Perhaps that has some bearing on her anti-Israeli sentiments.
Amazing how millenia-old antagonisms remain quite strong.
