"If the entire movement, or part of it,
faces a situation where the noose is being tightened around it
and its collapse is a matter of days or hours," some of its key members must escape. That way,
those who remain behind can fight to the death without fear that their cause will die with them."
-- Ayman Zawahiri, Taliban religious conservative
No, Dude, it's your ass and your cause dies with you.
Good Old Days
by Jack Point
Does anyone remember the good old days of America? We had a stable, thriving, economy,
we led the free world by cooperating with other countries, and we had a strong, capable,
intelligent leader in the White House? It should not be too hard to remember these days
since they were still occurring just over a year ago. Since that time, Bush has trashed all of this
and has become EXACTLY the kind of "leader" that the majority of Americans thought he would be
-which is precisely WHY we voted for President Gore.
"The truth is, this new president has done
things with relative impunity that would have been huge uproars
if they had occurred under Clinton. Take it from someone who made a living writing about those uproars. ...
There is no well-coordinated corps of aggrieved and methodical people who start each day looking for
ways to expose and undermine a new president." When Clinton changed his mind, critics pounced,
and news stories depicted each incident as evidence that "slick Willie" had no abiding convictions.
When Bush changes his mind -- on school
vouchers, the size of the tax cut, carbon-dioxide pollution
he's seen as "shrewd rather than servile."
--John Harris, Washington Post reporter,who covered Clinton.
Semi-entertaining horseshit by Scot Lehigh of the Boston Globe,
Rebuttal by Bartcop
How, then, could the White House have failed to respond with more force and focus to Aug. 7, 1998, when
truck bombs detonated at US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed 244 people and injured thousands more?
Two years earlier, as the Times also reports, political adviser Dick Morris had urged Clinton to launch a
higher-profile antiterrorism effort. The American people would back measures like federalizing airport security
and taking military action against terrorist installations in foreign countries, Morris told Clinton.
Sean Penn Drips Venom on O'Reilly, Stern
"This is not a man sitting on the toilet with a smile on his face. He's a grumpy, self-loathing joke," says Penn.
"There's a long history of people who capitalize on the lowest common demominator of people's impulses,
Adolf Hitler being one of them. Not everybody wants to hit the wall in a violent rage and break their knuckles,
so O'Reilly does it for them. He'll get very rich and get his rocks off that he's powerful."
Correspondent's coverage breathes life and laughter into war
by Kathleen Parker
"I'm very fit. I still box. I don't smoke," said Geraldo, no doubt
against his characteristic self-effacing reluctance. "I'd like to find a reporter
who can outdistance me. I have a 31-inch waist, a 42-inch chest. I'm still real butch."
Phew. Is it hot in here or is it just me?
Blame this bad reporting on `the fog of war'
Upon arriving in the war zone, Geraldo breathlessly announced that he'd be carrying a gun
at all times and that he personally would plug Osama bin Laden if the opportunity presented himself.
During one satellite dispatch, Geraldo frantically
ducked for cover, claiming a bullet had narrowly
missed his noggin. Viewers were left to wonder whether it had been fired by an al Qaeda sniper
or a disgruntled member of Geraldo's own crew.
Fox News - they only hire the funniest clowns.
"So I'm really looking forward to 2002.
I'm also looking forward to my cheeseburger."
-- We have the stupidest leader in the history of the world.
on permanant vacation from now on
"Why work when we can videoconference?"
Getting away doesn't mean the president is out of touch or that he leaves the job behind,
especially with the United States leading an international war against terrorism that Bush
says will be protracted and extend well beyond Afghanistan.
Notice how the obedient American press takes the Rove spin and elevates it to a fact.
"He don't need to go to no office - long as he has a computer nearby..."
While he is at the ranch, Bush will have
daily intelligence, military and FBI briefings, reviewing progress
at home and abroad, keeping up to date with the latest developments and planning the next steps.
He can pick up the telephone and be connected to any world leader.
He has a fleet of helicopters and a jumbo jet at his disposal.
His aides are just a videoconference away.
Weak & Stupid is going to play with his Game Boy from now on, and every other day, he'll check in
with Cheney & Rumsfeld & Mr. Rove to see how the Bush Family Evil Empire war is going.
We've never had a president this lazy before.
By comparison, he makes the Reagan administration seem awake.
Subject: I know who was involved
I know who was directly involved in the terrorist
There were clues right under our noses all along, but yet the big boys ignored them!
It was the GROCERY STORE CHAINS and dairy producers that were behind it all!
They had prior knowledge that the attacks were going to take place.
How do I know?
Well, a week or so before the attacks, I distinctly
remember seeing packages of meat, dairy,
and bakery products, etc. plainly stamped with "Buy on or before 9-11-01"
They CLEARLY knew something was going to happen,
and were subtly trying to unload their merchandise before then!!!!
I'll let you be the one to get credit for being the first to report it!!!
PS. For the love of Koresh, if you put this up,
please don't include my actual e-mail address.
The Grocery Goons will surely want to rub out whoever blows their cover.
Look at these two pictures - what do you see?
This son of a bitch is scary.
Atta was a "winner," a leader, an organizer, a planner, a tactician, a thinker, a play-maker.
He was a cold-hearted, card-counting, slick and smooth secret agent, hiding in the grass
He's got all the confidence in the world - just look at him.
He knew when this picture was taken that someday it would
be shown on every television on Earth, and he's striking a pose.
He was also smart enough to blend in, and wait for his chance to strike.
But this guy...
I see a small-time, punk-ass idiot who may be more stupid than
George W. Bush.
This guy is a pawn, a dupe, a loser, a stooge, a chump, a sap, a fool, a sucker and a patsy.
He flew to Amsterdam, Germany, Tel Aviv, Egypt, Pakistan, then back to Paris - all in 2001.
This petty thief couldn't handle sweeping up at a mortuary.
Matter of fact, he's never held any jobs, so how'd he get the money to fly around?
Plus, he wouldn't know a package of C4 if it bit him on his Tom
I wouldn't ride an escalator with this son of a bitch.
He couldn't look any more non-stupid if his last name was Bush.
That makes me wonder:
What was Reid doing with C4 on that flight from Paris?
How could a loser like this find C4 when I can't even find decent pot?
Was he supposed to fail?
Why didn't he go in the bathroom to lite that fuse?
Even if he set off the smoke alarm, he would've had several minutes to himself.
If you say, "He was a test, a dry run, a dress rehearsal," why did he try to lite the fuse?
If they wanted to see if they could sneak a shoe-bomb on a plane,
they had their answer
the minute those nutty Frenchies passed him thru customs - so why screw up a successful test?
I hope people smarter than me are working on those questions...

Bush says "Could be a while before bin Laden found
Bush tried to prepare America for a possibly long wait for finding bin Laden on Friday,
saying he could be hidden in a cave or might have tried to ``slither out'' of Afghanistan to Pakistan.
``I don't know where he is,'' Bush said
Trust me, mark this to retrieve later - Karl Rove and Karen Hughes
estimate bin Laden
will be found in October of 2004 - just in time for Emperor Bush to be re-"elected."
Winning With the Military Clinton Left Behind
Just over a year ago, Bush and Cheney were campaigning hard on the theme that Clinton and Gore
had run down the military. Picking up a traditional GOP refrain, they claimed that defense cuts under
Clinton had gone too far, that the armed forces had been overused badly, that readiness was poor.
But now Bush stands on the verge of winning
a war with the military that Clinton bequeathed him.
Just as in NATO's 1999 war against Serbia, the United States military has led coalition forces to
a decisive victory while suffering very few casualties in the process.
When our boys in uniform said, "Ok,
Smirk, we elected you, now where's that help
you promised us was 'on the way' at every campaign stop?"
Bush replied, "Well, we need a few years
to study it, ...see what works best."
Smirk 'n Dick lied when they said the military wasn't ready.
Smirk 'n Dick beat Afghanistan with Clinton's military.
Gore and the Democrats KNEW they were lying, but instead of fighting
back like they promised
they just laid there and took it like a party of gelding losers.
...how did I end up in a party of pitiful quitters?

New Mexico church burns Harry Potter books
As hundreds protested nearby, a church group burned Harry Potter and other books.
Jack Brock, the Christ Community Church founder and pastor, said the books burned
Sunday were "a masterpiece of satanic deception."
Or, we could be seeing a "masterpiece" of media manipulation where
Jack Brock has
figured out how to increase profits with a phoney-baloney counterstrike against an enemy
that doesn't exist so he can put his church on the map.
Is there anything lower than a charlatan using people's fear of God's anger to steal money?
"Texas Sen. Phil Gramm announced his
retirement earlier this year and everybody said nice things,
especially about the fact that he was walking away from his Senate seat while still in his prime.
Now congressional committees investigating Enronís collapse are wondering whether his decision
to leave the Senate had anything to do with potential conflicts of interest. Grammís wife, Wendy,
was on Enronís board of directors while her husband chaired the Senate Banking Committee,
whose oversight responsibilities should have caught Enronís troubles."
