Rowley tries to mislead public--posted by Tony Garcia on 11/29/2005
OK, granted, Chris Kroc's croc-o-crap show has a very small listenership. So don't comment about "no one listens to him anyway." That is not the point here. He had a substitute last night. That sub was talking about the Able Danger story and decided to bring Coleen Rowley on as an expert on the matter. Rowley used her access to 50,000 watts of radio power to mislead the public.
Problem: The very moment Rowley announced her candidacy for Congress she lost her full standing as an expert on anything...especially when polluting the airwaves with her drivel. Why? Because every word she utters is driven for her candidacy regardless of the issue.
She was called to task on that especially since she took pot shots at the "leaders" regarding Iraq. Iraq was 100% irrelevant to the conversation. She acknowledged the possible problem, but assured the audience this particular discussion had nothing to do with her candidacy. This discussion had nothing to do with her candidacy for Congress. Proof that her views are not related to her run for Congress is she wrote many papers on the subject, some of which are on her website, which she gave out. www.coleenrowley.com.
Did you check out her proof that her conversation last night had nothing to do with her candidacy?
Perhaps you would be just as shocked as I was to find out that while claiming to seperate candidacy from her speaking as an expert on intelligence matters she referred people to her expert papers through her Congressional website.
Is that the "Ethical Decision Making" that Minnesotans can count on from her?
