McClellan on OBL

White House Press Briefing:

MR. MCCLELLAN: Good afternoon, everyone. I know there’s a lot of interest in the purported bin Laden audiotape that aired on al-Jazeera earlier today. Let me just give you a couple of quick updates. The President was informed about the audiotape shortly after his remarks in Sterling, Virginia, earlier this morning. The intelligence community is continuing to analyze the tape to determine its authenticity and if there is any actionable intelligence. If there is any actionable intelligence, we will act on it.

We continue to act on all fronts to win the war on terrorism, and we will. The President is fully committed to doing everything within his power to prevent attacks and defeat the terrorists. We are taking the fight to the enemy; we are working to advance freedom and democracy, to defeat their evil ideology. We are winning. Clearly, al Qaeda and the terrorists are on the run. And that is why it is important that we do not let up, and that we do not stop until the job is done. And that’s what we will do.

MR. McCLELLAN: And as I indicated, clearly, the al Qaeda leaders and the terrorists are on the run. They’re under a lot of pressure. We do not negotiate with terrorists. We put them out of business. The terrorists started this war, and the President made it clear that we will end it at a time and place of our choosing. We continue to pursue all those who are seeking to do harm to the American people, and to bring them to justice.

What I simply want to know: Could you have possibly crammed more meaningless, bullshit cliche’s into the above? I feel like I just got hit by a truck that was carrying every Republican talking point used in the last five years.
