Exclusive Flares Pictures of Al Gore's Speech

Wednesday, February 15, 2006
In Saudi Arabia last Sunday former Vice President Al Gore addressed the Jeddah Economic Forum, and, in a resounding yet MSM-buried flip-flop of the dreary mantra that the Bush Administration is "soft on the Saudis", announced that the administration has in fact been treating the Saudis very badly indeed. Flares into Darkness is now able to reveal exclusive and hitherto unpublished photos of this staggering event.


"The worst thing we can possibly do is to cut off the channels of friendship and mutual understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States."

America committed "TERRIBLE ABUSES" against Arabs after the 911 attacks!

Arabs have been "INDISCRIMINATELY ROUNDED UP" and held in "UNFORGIVABLE" conditions!

****************************

James Taranto has some observations worth a read, and he refers to Tigerhawk's in-depth rumination on the meaning of this person who, in this time of great danger to all the peoples of the Earth, and to all that our ancestors have bequeathed us, so very nearly became the leader of the free world.

Providence had mercy on our souls, and Providence, in the razor-thin margin of that mercy, sent us a little message that we should all hope and pray we not forget.

I just thank god this clown never got to be our President. What a pitiful, bitter "man" he is.

The price of entry into the elite liberal tribe is the rejection of ethno-centrism, after all, its embrace is how we got Hitler, right? It all seems so harmless, yet, in the end, self-flagellation is soon the norm, and Al Gore is what you get.

It looks more like Algore is overdoing the steroids,in his quest to become an alpha male he has overdone something.

And he seemed such a relatively harmless whackjob when he was just running around inventing technologies, reinventing gubmint, saving Gaia, and providing the model for sappy love stories.

Buddy Larsen said...

Mark, here's the nut graf from your post: "They include photographs of six corpses, although the circumstances of their deaths are not clear."

Anything "unclear" is automatically connected to US soldiers at Abu Ghraib? Good idea--no sense in besmirching the reputations of terrorists when there's that horrid ole Uncle Sam handy.

Peter UK said...

Abu Ghraib is so yesterday's news,hasn't the left got any new talking points?
The continuous regurgitating of phony outrage points is getting tedious.

Buddy Larsen said...

Yeh--what's the point?

That a million-person organization that exists for the purpose of fighting, will occasionally attract a few people who might go nuts under pressure?

Big Huge Human Nature Insight, that.

Peter UK said...

Buddy,
Howard Dean has spent so much money on farming talking points out to the likes of Markg8 that the bucket is empty.The Raginator has broken down and they can't afford to get it fixed,hence,all the old talking points will have to be recycled.

Knucklehead said...

It's the "Green" in them. They value the idea of recycling. It includes all facets of their lives - everything is a "redux". Vietnam, Nixon, civil rights, music, fashion, and, of course, The Memes of Outrage.

So called "liberals" of today are not the least bit "progressive". They are today's Archie Bunkers. We can only hope they eventually achieve the personal growth that even Archie eventually achieved. I'm not optimistic about that.

Buddy Larsen said...

In fairness to Mark, he didn't troll it back up, Google News is covering CNN covering an Aussie TV program. The round-up is currently featured alongside the round-up of the latest Cartoon Riots.

Good ole freedom of the press, if there's riots over it, by all means use some more of it to flame the riots higher. Get them archives out, and time the releases judiciously (NYTimes-style), or heads will roll. Er, "so" heads will roll.

Peter UK said...

Buddy,
You mean things are so bad the DNC is having to outsource outrage to Australia,whatever happened to good old "Made in the USA" outrage?

Buddy Larsen said...

Ah, hell, i knew that walking around upside down would eventually catch up wi' them Ozzies.

Robert Samuelson, at RCP, talks about the counterintuitive notion that the economic instability of particular industries actually contributes to overall economic stability while, at the same time, contributing to the sense of anxiety among individuals. Hmmm... Anxiety Amid The Prosperity.

Buddy Larsen said...

Morgan's chart -- the JII index -- perfectly reinforces Samuelson.

The PoMoism that JFKennedy first made famous, in his wry observation of it, that "perception is reality" is one o them False Prophets, I think.

Buddy Larsen said...

From Mark's link, the blogger addressing Tigerhawk:

"You are pro-Bush - pro the man who made and maintains torture as US policy. You are pro-Republican - pro the party which most strongly defends and endorses this policy. And, most importantly, you have joined in in the smearing of people like Amnesty International, Dick Durbin (temporarily), and now Al Gore - whose opposition to torture, and the supporters of and apologists for torture, is unqualified."

Mark, I'm sorry, but there's so much false premise in the very first para that I could read no further.

Buddy Larsen said...

Try this on your friends, Mark: If the torture happening in the fighting of terrorism is given a value of "1", then what would you imagine the value to have been of the torture that had been happening under the two deposed terrorist regimes ?

Buddy Larsen said...

There IS a true number, you know, that despite our inability to know it perfectly, nevertheless *does* exist, as a 'truth' within the realm of 'objective reality' --much like the existence of rock, water, wind, earth, fire, and other stuff like that.

"Neighbor, my kitchen is on fire, I need your water hose!"

"No, neighbor, you can't use my water hose--it's only for watering daisies."

"But when my house really flames up, yours will catch afire, too."

"Hmm, maybe I oughtta think this through awhile."

"Fine. How long do you need? It'll soon be too late."

"Hmm, you mean 'time' is a factor?"

"Of course it is, you idiot!"

"Oh, so I'm an idiot? Well, screw your fire, then."

Knucklehead said...

Apologies for putting the Samuelson link in the wrong thread.

Nice pictures of Al. Poor guy. So much was promised him, so little delivered.

Sooner or later the "by whom" and "how much" regarding his fee for this speaking engagement will become public knowledge. That oughta be interesting.

Parable, Mark.

Knuck:

Al: "Yes, I'll speak--where at, what's my fee, and what do you want me to say?"

Buddy Larsen said...

It's the Fire Dep't that needs the hose. What's your prob w/ Nordquist?

Buddy Larsen said...

The government has its own political party, Mark. It's called "the Democrats".

This party is internally wired to make the whole country into 'the government'.

Somebody has to resist this circuit, for otherwise the generator will short out.

buddy:

Good post. I think we dodged a bullet when this crazy son of a b**** lost that election.

Yes guys like mark get upset about what they think is torture, but if the Saudis want to lob off some unwed mother's head...hey to each his own.

This whole torture thing is stupid.

There is no torture. As much as the left wants there to be. AbuGhraib was an exception to the rule and people went to jail. And even then there was no torture, not the kind carried out routinely by Saddam Hussein. In fact if it were up to them he would still be skinning people alive. The hypocrites.

I think I heard Myers say that in all the thousands of people held in custody, 38 have died in cases that were considered homicides. That is 38 too many but it is not indicative of blatant widespread abuse.

But then again if you are mark and you want to impress upon the American people that you believe the average American soldier is a war criminal then beating this dead horse some more is definitely the way to go.

And then go suck up to the Saudis.

And then refuse to put the cartoons in the paper. AbuGhraib pics that might get some soldiers killed?? Hell yes, print em all...but cartoons of the Prophet. My no, we must after all kiss ass for the crazy people. birds of feather and all.

terrye said...

Mark:

I am back.

And I wish you would go away. You have no desire to debate.

And you know what? If it is left to the Democrats programs like Social Security will die because they refuse to come up with alternatives to keep them alive. They just bitch and promise.

So take your demagoguery and choke on it.

Peter UK said...

"Look Gore wants to make even the best functioning most valuable parts of the US government fail."
He wants to surrender to dhimmitude and submission,if only to get Hillary into a burqa.

Buddy Larsen said...

Terrye -- in order to prevent the possiblity that one out ten or a hundred thousand American soldiers might get too rough with the enemy, it is better to leave 55 million people under the pain of torture and death, 30,000 or so per year routinly murdered horribly, at the whim of an organization of a few thousand psychotic homicidal megalomaniacs.

Peter, Hillary in a burqua? Hmm, disregard my previous para.

Knucklehead said...

Tom Bevans of RCP, in Al Gore: International Man of Mystery, covers some of the typical condemnations of Al's behavior in this case then sums it up very well with:

And what about the substance of what Gore said on America’s current visa policy? Last month he ripped the Bush administration over a program designed to eavesdrop on conversations between suspected terrorists overseas and persons in the United States. Now Gore bemoans the tighter restrictions placed on visitors traveling to the United States from countries that have a higher likelihood of producing terrorists.

Gore is against eavesdropping on potential terrorist communications and he’s against tighter screens for visitors originating from Islamic countries. So exactly what would America’s national security policy look like under a Gore administration? For the sake of the country, that’s one mystery best left unsolved.
