Protect Top Bureaucrats, NY Times SCRUBS Its OWN
Osama Bin Laden Warning That It Published on 9-9-01
On 9-9-01 - just two days before Osama Bin Laden's attack on the US - the NY Times published a
lengthy and chilling article about Osama Bin Laden by reporter John Burns. Some time after 9-11,
the Times SCRUBBED this article, replacing it with a completely different article that Burns wrote on 9-12.
Both articles discuss a 2-hour videotape by Bin Laden that intelligence agencies first saw in June 2001,
but ignored until September.
Why was the 9-9 article scrubbed? Read it yourself - we've UNSCRUBBED it.
not thinking big enough
by Molly Ivins
Enron's tax practices are so common that the Center for Public Integrity estimates
that they cost the country $195 billion a year, which means that the rest of us have to
make up that missing tax money. That comes to $1,600 per taxpayer.
Your very own stake in the Enron fiasco.
Somebody else said this first, but it's worth repeating.
Since 9-11, getting bin Laden has been America's most wanted since
but the Bush administration hasn't been able to find him or kill him.
Yet they STILL want to fault Clinton for not getting bin laden,
and that's when the urgency was two percent of what it is today.
Think about that.
Whenever they say, "Clinton didn't try hard enough,"
doesn't that mean Bush isn't trying hard enough, with 50 times the incentive?
When the WTC came down, I had no reason to make any part of this
war partisan. But then the
GOP Hate machine cranked up their "Clinton's fault, Clinton's fault," mantra like they always do,
so that makes the current accusation worth repeating:
If Clinton didn't try hard enough before the WTC came down,
what does that say about Bush's reluctance to arrest him today?
I was kinda feeling down yesterday - you know - depression, ...stress,
inadequacy and worthlessness, ...that kind of thing, ...I was having a real down day.
But then I checked the mailbox.
There was a fancy-ass letter in there from a law firm,
"Oyster, Tey, Kubb, Beaver and Roth - Attorneys at Law"
The clouds opened up and my spirits were lifted.
"Somebody wants a piece of Ol' BartCop in court," I thought to myself.
I ripped the envelope like Jenna Bush tearing the protective seal
off a vodka bottle.
I slowly unfolded the papers inside, slowly, to heighten the experience.
I scanned the paper to see who had the balls to sue me.
Would it be from Bill Bennett, "The Williams College rapist?"
Would it be from Paul Harvey, who tricks horses into stanchions so he can molest them?
Would it be from Ralph Reed, the monster who beats his baby for being scared?
Would it be from that nasty leg-spreader Laura the Homewrecker?
Would it be from the man some call president, King Smirk?
Would it be from Gerbilboy himself, Rush the Truth Molester?
How much was I being sued for?
...a quarter million dollars?
...a half million dollars?
...a million dollars?
...ten million dollars?
...ten million dollars with a demand to never publish again?
...I read the letter and it wasn't a nasty lawsuit at all.
It was from a bartcop.com reader who wanted some BartCop stickers.
I thought SURE somebody wanted to see my Eugene Young impression.
Damn, damn, damn.
Will I never get sued?
Subject: Re: It appears that all you're good at is name-calling
You can try and sweet talk me all you want there,
But I seriously doubt that you'd be able to sway me over to your side of the aisle
because you're just sour, and offensive to even the most receptive people's sensibilities.
Dude, I didn't invite you into the chat room to sway you over to my
I invited you in to kick your ass,
then publish the transcript.
And sooner or later you'll find that calling women whores and men stupid aren't very good debate techniques.
If the women in question are whores and the men are stupid, I'll say
(do you at least have an A.A. from the local community college?)
I grew up in a Catholic POW camp.
You may get what YOU consider to be a large response
from that pablum webpage that you run,
but I think upon further examination you'll find that those are people who have always been down
in the same hole that you are, (begin talking about my mother here)
I didn't know your mother was to be talked about - what did she do?
BTW, I'm not familiar with the word "pablum," so I looked it up.
Webster says "pablum" is a trademark for cereal.
Did you mean "pabulum?"
...and have just found someone who "thinks" like
they do, and (barely) knows HTML.
Any way keep dreamin' kickin' and screamin' I gotta go back to work so I can be overtaxed
and my wife can homeschool my kids.(begin calling my wife a whore here)
Jason, sorry, I didn't know your wife was a whore - that's gotta be
tough on your self-esteem.
Do the kids know?
Letters to the Tulsa World
Enron execs deserve mob justice
We have become too civilized. The Enron
executives should be dragged kicking and
screaming from their homes and severely
beaten by the employees who were robbed
of their retirement fund.
Jobs in Tulsa are scarce
To the people who have jobs in the Tulsa area:
Do you know how fortunate you are? Try finding
a job nowadays, whether it be a common position,
in the computer field or working as a cook in the
school system. For every position open, which
are few, 20 to 30 people are applying. Jobs in
Tulsa are very scarce.
Bush's legacy: wars, terror alarms
As long as Bush is president, we are going to
have wars and terrorist attack alerts. Sit back
and fasten your seatbelt, because it's going to
be a bumpy ride.
I didn't not write any of these pieces.
That means there are others like me (well, not exactly) in Oklahoma.
Who would've thought?
War and recession,
war and recession,
war and recession,
war and recession,
war and recession.
Too bad nobody warned us this would happen
if a Republican was
elected appointed president.
Subject:: Rush and Laura
I sometimes listen to the Armed Forces Network
(or whatever it's now called) over here in Saudi Arabia.
Each evening local time, the network has an hour of Rush followed by an hour of Laura Schlessinger.
Would you or any of your readers know if they are being paid by the government for these broadcasts?
I would believe so, 'cause last September they went off the air for a few weeks at the end of the fiscal year.
If so how much?
Most of the other programming consists of NPR,
state public radio, or military productions.
Are Rush & Laura being subsidized by the government?
Mike, I'm not sure if money is being exchanged, but I wouldn't be surprised.
As patriotic as Rush and Laura claim to be, they're whores first, then patriots.
But maybe they give a price break, who knows?
Let me tell you what that son-of-a-bitch Limbaugh used to do.
When we were in Kosovo, they always beamed his first hour to the boys in uniform.
So the vulgar Pigboy would wait until the second and third hours to ridicule the military.
He constantly called them "imcompetent boobs" and such, but never in the first hour.
But it makes sense for Rush & Laura to be on Armed Forces radio
by and large the military is made up of right-wing gun nuts, which is why I catch
so much hell for being a strong supporter of our soldiers.
These people would rather die under Bush than come home safely under
that reasoning has yet to be adequately explained to me. If I had a kid in the service,
I'd rather he come home under Bush than die under Clinton - but that's just me.
Until the weak, stupid and greedy Usurperboy was appointed King, we
had a really nice deal
going here in America with peace and prosperity. But the right-wing wanted their precious tax cut,
so Scalia shoved the First Moron down our throats and now we're at war with a balooning deficit.
But in all the years I've been living, I've never seen a foreign-made
tank roll down my street.
For that, I thank the military.
This Just In...
Asheville, NC - Stephen Sacco, who yesterday proclaimed
Israel his homeland
and claimed that he had an ancestral right to all the land of Palestine,
has magnanimously offered the Israelis their very own state in the Gaza Strip.
He also has sent a letter to Palestinian Chairman
Yassir Arafat offering him
the entire state of New Jersey for an independent Palestinian state.
Ariel Sharon commented, "If they get New Jersey,
we want New York...
or at least the holiest of holies, Manhattan."
An unnamed State Department official (really terrible
how his parents
didn't give him a name) said that, "Mr. Sacco, in and of himself, is an Axis of Idiocy!"
In an address Mr. Sacco wishes to deliver to the
Knesset, the text is plain,
"You can run all the deli's in Jerusalem, also you can write for all the sitcoms.
Other than that, you can do whatever you want in the Gaza strip.
The rest I'm taking over in order to build a theme park."
Mr. Sacco can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Outcry in Nevada Over Nuke Waste
Bush pointed to national security and the need to support the nuclear industry
as major reasons to push ahead with a nuclear waste dump in Nevada — one he
said he is convinced is scientifically sound and should be built.
The decision prompted an immediate outcry
in Nevada where Democrats accused
Bush of breaking a campaign promise not to saddle them with 77,000 tons of nuclear
waste that will remain dangerous for 10,000 or more years.
Wait a minute, wait a minute!
Did you see how the AP writer phrased that?
"Democrats accused Bush of breaking a campaign promise..."
Hell, he either made the damn promise or
I don't have the time or resources to run down Bush speeches from 2000, but AP damn sure does.
Why don't they run the paragraph from the speech where Bush promised and then say,
"Bush broke his promise," if he did?
They continue to cover for the stupid and clumsy liar.
More outrage from Las Vegas bartcop.com reader Patricia S.
Please (please!) post something on Yucca Mountain.
We really need some help out here.
We're screwed if this goes through.
(Yes, I realize that it's "years away", but what
you're not seeing in the "news" is that the pretzeldent has
"suggested" building a temporary above-ground "dump" right next to Yucca Mountain as an interim solution.
So "ten years away", my ass. You just KNOW that "temporary dump" will be in place within a year.)
One idea my SO had was to try to convince Sen.
John Ensign (R-NV, but still a newbie) and Gov. Kenny Guinn
(R-NV) to leave the repub party. We're going to try to get a "movement" going here to get people to write
to him and try to make him see that this would be a major protest against YM.
If we can at least get Ensign to switch parties, it would deal a devastating blow to the republicans.
Anyway, we (the State of Nevada, Clark County
and the City of Las Vegas) still have a couple of lawsuits
pending, and IIRC, we have Tom Daschle on our side as well as Dick Gephardt. And we still have good old
Oscar Goodman, our Mayor, who promises to lay down in the road in front of the trucks.
You gotta love that guy :-) (Most of us do; he's terrific.)
But we need more.
Anything you can post would be a huge help.
This one's serious. I can't believe some idiot(s) thought it would
be a "good idea" (e.g., "sound science") to put this 90 miles from a population center of 1.4 million people.
I spent all day yesterday in a funk. I just feel like we're doomed.
Las Vegas, NV
Patricia, glad to do it.
That's MY city Bush is screwing with.
Radioactove tequila is no good for me.
The "Enterprise" incident
Did you see the most recent episode of "Enterprise?"
They stole an idea that I stole from them over a year ago.
Once, when bartcop.com was still in its infancy,
we felt we were in a do-or-die situation.
So in November of 2000, after the whore Supreme Court rescinded our right to vote,
I asked for contributions for the first time to buy ads somewhere so we could get noticed.
There was some burnout and frustration, so we decided to mimic that
classic Star Trek episode
where Spock, in command of the lost shuttle, jettisoned their remaining fuel to create a flare that
they hoped the Enterprise would see, therby effecting their rescue.
So that's what we did.
We sent every dime we had (I think Mrs BartCop threw in $200) to Salon.com (this was before
Salon went so Fox News) to purchase some banners "in rotation" that many people couldn't find.
Well, we didn't set the world on fire but we did attract some influential movers and shakers
- the people who go e-mail crazy when something happens and here we are.
The Salon ad was very expensive - four figures - and it didn't seem
worth it at the time
but we did grow in the 30 days after that, so they must've contributed.
(By comparison, you can advertise at bartcop.com
for TWO figures, not four,
and get a lot smarter reader in the process :)
This is one of those pieces that has no great ending, I just wanted
to acknowledge that "flare" maneuver
for other struggling dot coms in case they feel like they're not making traction catching on with readers.
If you're tired of toiling away at your dot com and not growing,
let bartcop.com ignite your jettisoned fuel.

how cool would that be?

Afghan War and the Geneva Convention
by David Friedrichs, military historian and Project 60 manager
This is part one of a four-part essay on the application of the Geneva Convention toward the Afghan War.
The importance of this issue is that the Bush administration, by its complete misreading of international law
has left the United States vulnerable to charges of war crimes. Our nation is better than that and those who
supposedly lead us, should not act in criminal manners. Bush, Ashcroft and Rumsfeld have managed, in their
ridiculous declaration regarding POWs in this war, to lay waste to any pretext we have to be the guardians
of human rights in the world today.

385 - The Salon Issue
How does it feel?
...knowing your new president is so stupid, he thinks,
"the executive branch interprets the law?"
After 13 months in office, it turns out Bush was right.
He and his gang of illegal thugs will interpret the Consitution for us, too.

Subject: GOP & Limbaugh Against Campaign Finance Reform
Rush Limbaugh spent 3 hours Thursday whining about
the evils and inconsequential nature of the
recently passed bill on campaign finance reform. Now which is it Rush, is it evil or inconsequential?
You can't have it both ways.
I suspect that he feels that the GOP will be hurt
the most by this needed reform
and so that's why he complained so vehemently about the House vote.
Judging by the urgent fervor in his voice, I suspect
that this legislation is good for America.
I also suspect that Bush will veto this bill so as not to cut off the endless supply of soft money to the GOP.
Jim in Rochester, MI
Remember, in 2000, Bush had unlimited money.
Team Bush was so totally drowning in cash, they refused matching federal funds.
...and the SOB still didn't win the election.

Her words prove that.
This is far from the first time that she’s
