Representative Dingell (D-MI) is "not against Hezbollah"

Scott at Powerline notes the following snippet of interview highlighting the vast gulf that exists between the two parties:

Yesterday John posted a link to video clip of Democratic Rep. John Dingell on YouTube and posted the audio of the clip here. John accurately quoted Dingell as follows:

"I don't take sides for or against Hezbollah; I don't take sides for or against Israel." Asked, "You're not against Hezbollah?" Dingell answers, "No..."

...The exchange occurs in the context of questioning on Dingell's vote against House Resolution 921 supporting Israel and condemning Hezbollah that I commented on here; Dingell was one of the seven Democratic "no" votes on the resolution...

Lest we forget, Hezbollah has been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. servicemen.

Of course, you won't be reading about Dingell's outrageous statements in the Old York Times. True to form, they've decided to censor this news, too (along with the 500 WMDs found in Iraq since 2003, the Project HARMONY database disclosures tying Al Qaeda to Saddam Hussein, and the Al Qaqaa stories that mysteriously exited stage left the day after the President's reelection).

I wonder how close rocket explosions would have to get to the offices of the New York Times before they: (a) recognize the gravity of the global war on terror; and (b) begin to back the U.S. military. One would have thought the gaping hole a couple of blocks away would have done the trick.

In the mean time, the Axis of Ignorance (Dowd, Rich, and Herbert) will continue its attempts to earn Pulitzer Prizes in the always competitive categories of cognitive dissonance and moral equivalence.
