Of Homeland Security and the Most Discredited Profession

Dr Sanity, in "Reprise: The Neo-Marxist Fascism of the Left" posts that John at Power Line in "More Revelations From the Intelligence Community" ...

"... makes a startling discovery in the text of the most recent NIE report, recently splashed all over the headlines and leftist blogosphere as "proving" that the Bush Administration has put the US in more danger by its actions in the war on terror:

"Remember all those news stories about how a secret report--still secret, I guess--said that we were now in as much danger of terrorist attack as we were prior to September 11? Well, that's not what the NIE says. It says the opposite (my emphasis), in a paragraph that I have yet to see quoted in a newspaper:

"We assess that greatly increased worldwide counter-terrorism efforts over the past five years have constrained the ability of al-Qa’ida to attack the U.S. Homeland again and have led terrorist groups to perceive the Homeland as a harder target to strike than on 9/11. These measures have helped disrupt known plots against the United States since 9/11."
"This is a perfect example of what I hate most about the MSM and the left."

Well, what can you say? Journalism surely must be by now The Most Discredited Profession after the occupation of Freedom Fighter ... Read all about John's revelation here, and the doctor's valued comments on the Carnival of Insanities here!
