    Everytime that woman asks questions of conservative Presidents/spokesmen at White House or other press briefing, I wonder if she's the Devil incarnate. :puke:

    Helen Thomas Rides White House Press Sec: 'Were we invited into Iraq?'

    Wed May 25 2005 17:16:06 ET

    Wire Queen Helen Thomas today ripped into White House spokesman Scott McClellan over his claims the United States is in Afghanistan and Iraq -- by invitation.

    Joined in progess...

    Q The other day -- in fact, this week, you said that we, the United States, is in Afghanistan and Iraq by invitation. Would you like to correct that incredible distortion of American history --

    MR. McCLELLAN: No, we are -- that's where we currently --

    Q -- in view of your credibility is already mired? How can you say that?

    MR. McCLELLAN: Helen, I think everyone in this room knows that you're taking that comment out of context. There are two democratically-elected governments in Iraq and --

    Q Were we invited into Iraq?

    MR. McCLELLAN: There are two democratically-elected governments now in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we are there at their invitation. They are sovereign governments, and we are there today --

    Q You mean if they had asked us out, that we would have left?

    MR. McCLELLAN: No, Helen, I'm talking about today. We are there at their invitation. They are sovereign governments -- Q I'm talking about today, too.

    MR. McCLELLAN: -- and we are doing all we can to train and equip their security forces so that they can provide for their own security as they move forward on a free and democratic future. Q Did we invade those countries?

    MR. McCLELLAN: Go ahead, Steve.

    "incredible distortion of American history". Isn't that an opinion on her part? I thought the press wasn't supposed to give opinions!!

    I absolutely cannot stand that woman!! She is rude,and takes an insult and puts it in the form of a question. What a horrible "journalist". She is one of those people that make you start to feel angry when you see the sight of her overdone face!!!

    "Yes...the disgusting looking troll on the front row...you're question?"

    It would be music to many ears.

    Me: Writing another poorly written and researched opinion piece I see? Well, allow me to educate you, the current Governments have asked us to stay, thus we have been invited.


    Q -- in view of your credibility is already mired? How can you say that?

    Me: My credibility is only questioned by those writing opinion pieces lightly concealed as news. I can say it because it is fact.

    Q Were we invited into Iraq?

    Me: We were invited to STAY in Iraq, there is a difference.

    Q You mean if they had asked us out, that we would have left?

    Me: The President stated so during the campaign, I have no reason to disbelieve him.

    Q Did we invade those countries?

    Me: As I said, a poorly researched opinion piece indeed. Next question, Steve?

    For everyone who remembers the good old days of Saturday Night Live...

    One edit to no1tovote4's post:

    Every answer from the press secretary starts with:

    "Helen, you ignorant slut"
