Wishing the "President" didn't have blood on his hands

"We are in the process of helping them implement
a strategy which is was described to us
in Aqaba as to how the Palestinian Authority want to reconstitute a security force in order
to make sure the terrorists, the haters of peace, those who can't stand freedom do not have
their way in the Middle East."

Six months after arriving in Kuwait and almost three months after entering Iraq, they were ready to go home.
Then they discovered that, at least from a soldier's-eye view on the ground, there seemed to be no American
plan for a postwar Iraq.
The mayhem that followed the collapse of
Mr. Hussein's government on April 9 has thrust them into a new mission:
keeping peace, even as their weary minds and bodies are still at war.
"You call Donald Rumsfeld and tell him our sorry
asses are ready to go home," Pfc. Matthew C. O'Dell,
an infantryman in Sergeant Betancourt's platoon, said as he stood guard on Tuesday. "Tell him to come
spend a night in our building."
"Kill that coward and bring his head to me at the Oval Office"
"I think that freedom is a powerful incentive.
And I am -- I believe that someday freedom
will prevail everywhere, because freedom is a powerful drive for people to -- and it's the
beginnings of people expressing themselves toward a free Iran, which I think is positive."

9/11 Detainees' Treatment Casts a Deep Shadow
Before the report's release, Ashcroft repeatedly asserted that at no time were the rights
of the detainees violated. He told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Dec.6, 2001, that
"all persons being detained have the right to contact their lawyers and their families."
That claim was false.
The inspector general "found that the Bureau
of Prisons' decision to house Sept. 11
detainees in the most restrictive confinement conditions possible severely limited the
detainees' ability to obtain, and communicate with, legal counsel."
To me, it seems like a mistake for Drew Barrymore to hire Demi
Moore for CAII.
Side-by-side, Demi's ten-age points out how painfully plain-looking these new "angels" are.
"And in the meantime, before that state is
established, it is clear that the free world,
those who love freedom and peace, must deal harshly with Hamas and the killers.
And that's just the way it is in the Middle East."

"It was well known throughout the intelligence community that it was a forgery," said Melvin Goodman,
a former C.I.A. analyst who is now at the Center for International Policy.
Still, Mr. Tenet and the intelligence agencies
were under intense pressure to come up with evidence
against Iraq. Ambiguities were lost, and doubters were discouraged from speaking up.
"It was a foregone conclusion that every photo
of a trailer truck would be a `mobile bioweapons lab'
and every tanker truck would be `filled with weaponized anthrax,' " a former military intelligence officer said.
"None of the analysts in military uniform had the option to debate the vice president, secretary of defense
and the secretary of state."
Great page. Read it every day.
Thought you would be interested in the fact
that any mention about WMD
has moved to page 18 of the Washington Post today.
Tomorrow it will be gone.
What did we do to deserve this?
Mostly, we refused to fight in late 2000.
The Republicans wanted to steal the White House and the Democrats said,
"OK, we don't really want to win - you can have it, we don't care."

Rebuilding Iraq Proves to Be A Gold Mine for Middlemen Ex-Soldiers,
Diplomats Open Doors And Broker Deals in Chaotic Region
by Greg Jaffe of the Whore Street Journal
Mr. McClelland supplied the company with the names of 15 senior military
contracting officers in Kuwait, the U.A.E., Oman and Qatar. Mr. McClelland
also gave 3M a list of names of local executives from companies such as Bechtel;
Kellogg, Brown & Root and military-supply firm DynCorp, many of whom are
former officers Mr. McClelland served with in the Gulf. Soon after Dr. Hoeller
arrived in Kuwait for the Bechtel conference, he met a senior military officer,
one of Mr. McClelland's contacts, who complained about a lack of Post-It
notes in Iraq. Within days, the military had put in an order for Post-Its,
electrical tape and multimedia projectors.
Hey Bart, please post this information because it needs to get out there:
These two guys are in charge of the committee
to take a look at whether or not
GW lied about WMDs. This ‘look’ will be behind closed doors and you know,
if the BFEE had their druthers, behind closed doors is where it would all remain.
Sen. Roberts, chair, 202.224.4774
Sen. Rockefeller, co-chair, 202.224.6472
Call them. Let them know that an investigation
as important as this one should not
be held behind closed doors. That the public has a right to know to what extent GW lied.
Let them know that you can barely contain your anger.
Then, call your congress critter.

Road Map to Peace
by Richard Fricker
Just because you can lie yourself into a meaningless military invasion proportional to
Slipperyrock playing the Green Bay Packers does not mean you are smart or even lucky,
and it damn sure does not mean God is on your side. It can, however, provide a rather
exaggerated view of one’s self.
What brought to mind Jerusalem of 1993 wasn’t
the “roadmap to peace.” It was Sharon
making Bush his personal bitch barking threats of “war on terrorism” to the Palestinians,
then provoking more violence with helicopter attacks on the Hamas.

security advisor says Bush failing to counter terror threat
Maybe if he spent less time on vacation and rewarding the super-rich...
A top White House anti-terrorism advisor who quit five days before the start of the Iraq war
has accused Bush (R-Not Elected) of not doing enough in the fight against terrorism.
"The administration wasn't matching its deeds
to its words in the war on terrorism," said Rand Beers.
Beers also said that the war in Afghanistan was a job abandoned at the halfway point and not enough
military resources have been put into the country.
"Terrorists move around the country with ease.
We don't even know what is going on.
Osama bin Laden could be anywhere in Afghanistan."
Every day there are new revelations from intelligence officials that the evidence was manipulated to scare
the American people into a war that the Associated Press conservatively estimates killed 3,240 Iraqi civilians,
a figure culled from the records of 60 of Iraq’s 124 hospitals. "The account is still fragmentary, and the
complete toll – if it is ever tallied – is sure to be significantly higher," the AP reported. [AP, June 10, 2003]
In light of that carnage and the continuing
bloodshed, the reaction to Bush’s WMD deceptions can be seen as
a measure of how enfeebled the U.S. political system has become. Will the American people demand serious
answers from Bush and his administration over what New York Times columnist Paul Krugman calls "the worst
scandal in American political history," taking the nation to war over a series of lies and distortions?
Or will the "feel good" presidency roll on?
I saw a chart on http://www.zianet.com/insightanalytical/
What a difference a murderer makes.
Bush is borrowing money to give to his richest contributors.
Why are the Democrats just sitting there - saying nothing?
"We don't care - we're Democrats - our job is to please Mr Rove."
"Well spank me with a haddock and call me Maureen.
Who could possibly have predicted this?
It turns out that "Halliburton's contract to restart Iraq's oil production has doubled in cost over
the past month, and the no-bid work may last longer than expected," according to the AP.
Oh, and while the Army originally said that a new contract would be awarded through competitive
bidding by August (since Halliburton got the gig without having to compete) they've suddenly
changed their minds. You know, I'm stunned. I would never in a million years have guessed that
Dick Cheney's former company would somehow manage to get a non-competitive, open-ended,
no-ceiling contract to rebuild the country that their ex-CEO just destroyed. I mean, how could
an administration of such honor, ethics and integrity possibly allow this to happen?"

My stalkers are a stupid lot.
All they do is live and breathe bartcop.com unlike any fan ever would or could.
It's hard to believe anyone would spend the time obsessing over a comedy site the way they do.
A recent favorite of the stalkers is when they sign me up for
all these wacko lists.
The thing is, almost every list in the world sends out an e-mail saying,
"You must click here to confirm your subscription," which I never do.
Thery generally come in a half dozen at a time, and they're all
together, so it takes about once second
to turn them blue and hit "Delete." Their other new favorite is snail mail suibscriptions to the PO Box.
They, too, come in bunchers, and they're all the same, so it takes about two seconds to dump them
in the trash can the Post Office puts by the table in the lobby.
The puzzling part is why these stalkers would take the time to
sign me up for all these lists
and newsletters when it takes just a second to dump them. It's gotta take at least a minute
per subscription to sign up, which means they're working 30-60 times harder to "harass" me
than it takes to laugh and dump their work in the trash.
But, I guess they feel closer by doing that.
Certainly, they are sexually molesting themselves all the while they are "stalking."
It really makes no sense...

"While Bush and his aides continue to insist
that weapons of mass destruction will

less believable. What protects the White House now, as the media begin to ask questions

I had heard something about a recall (impeachment?) of California
Governor Grey Davis,
but I didn't know any details so I asked my good friend Jim Higdon to explain it.
The Recall of Grey Davis
The primary allegation against Davis is that he "lied" (that word that is only allowed to be used in the media when it is applied to
Democrats) to California about the state of our current budget crisis. Of course this is an allegation that can be leveled against any
Governor in the US because no one predicted (with the exception, of course, of myself and anyone else who pays attention to right wing
politics) that Bush would purposely trash the US economy, and turn off required federal funding to the states. Add to that Davis' having to
deal with Bush/Cheney/Lay skullduggery in severely overcharging California for energy which Attorney General Crisco refuses to prosecute.
Much better to go after Martha Stewart because she's has a disagreeable personality and she is a large contributor to the Democrats.
Criscoman is always clear in his goals. Crime is okay as long as the Bushistas get their cut.

I've been getting mail written by people too angry to make sense.
Some read like this:
If you were going to shoot all the people
who perpetrated 9/11, the majority would be Americans.
And if you started along that path, you’d be like the Nazis who stood people in a line and shot them.
Once you start, the list is endless.
One last thing- if you really want to
see who’s in touch with the majority position on this issue,
monkey mail my letter, and see ask your readers what they think. But wait, that’s right, you don’t care, do you?
You’re “surrounded by cowards”; “these doves” give you shit, don’t they.
No one is right all the time bart.
Especially those who think murdering people (Bush’s solution) is the answer to a problem.
It's funny how people take a sentence I've written, and then change
it and ask, "Why did you say that?"
I never said I wanted to shoot "people," and I'm not "like the Nazi's."
Because I want Osama dead, hard lefties say I'm "just like Bush" and "Bush's identical twin."
And I have no idea what "that’s right,
you don’t care, do you?" means.
I like hearing other opinions, but mine aren't for sale. And yes, very often the people
who want to turn the other cheek for Osama want to kick my ass real bad.
Maybe you "other cheekers" could get together and agree on a spokesman
and he and I could politely duke it out in the chat room?
