The Obama Spin-Machine Breakdown

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Senior White House officials said Sunday that the Pakistani Taliban were behind the failed Times Square bombing. […] ‘We know that they helped facilitate it; we know that they helped direct it’, said Attorney General Eric Holder. ‘And I suspect that we are going to come up with evidence which shows that they helped to finance it. They were intimately involved in this plot’. […] After the attack, U.S. officials said they were exploring potential links to terrorist groups overseas but said it was likely that Shahzad was acting alone and that it was an isolated incident. Last week, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, told NBC News that ‘at this point I have no information that it’s anything other than a one-off’. Gen. David Petraeus told The Associated Press that Shahzad apparently operated as a ‘lone wolf’. Brennan on Sunday rejected suggestions that that the attempted bombing shows that terrorist groups overseas were gaining strength.”

Ah ha, so Mayor Bloomberg and all the other leftists, who knee-jerked the tired "one-off", "lone wolf", "it was probably a tea-bag maniac" sound bites immediately after the failed Times Square bombing, were a bit jerky in their hasty assessments? So what else is new.

Well, the big news is that, for the first time in recent memory, the leftist spin-machine seems to have broken down in the face of explanation so obvious that even your average college kid, who doesn't give a second thought about anything other than his next opportunity to load up on drugs and/or booze, was able to surmise as soon as the smoke cleared.

A truly amazing admission of failure to misdirect the uncomfortably obvious by such stalwarts as our own Eric "Miranda Miranda Miranda" Holder and Janet "I Am Not Aware of Anything" Napolitano.

I feel sorry for Robert "Read my lips — Fox News made the whole thing up" Gibbs. How the heck is he going to lie his way out of this one?
