which was it?
Yesterday marked the fourth anniversary of the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole and the tragic loss of lives accompanying the attack. With the consideration that such a horrible event occurred immediately before the previous presidential election, I'd like to ask a question of Mark Hyman of Sinclair Broadcasting, who while defending the Sinclair company's plan to broadcast a dishonest ninety-minute program defaming John Kerry just before the coming election recently said that considering the broadcast a contribution to the Bush campaign meant that "every car bomb in Iraq would be an in-kind contribution to John Kerry." If that is the case, then for which candidate was the "in-kind contribution?" of the attack on the U.S.S. Cole? If it was to help Bush become president, that means that the attackers thought he would be an ineffective leader and that they could get away with it. If it was for Al Gore to become president, it didn't work, so why would our foes try that tactic again? Which was it, Mr. Hyman?
