"Ten years ago, the thought that a National Guardsman or woman would be leaving their home state
  every few years for long-term deployments was inconceivable. Today it's a reality. This is a long-term
  effort, [in] both Iraq and Afghanistan. The National Guard will be called upon again and again."
     --Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., on how the National Guard has changed,   Attribution

 Top aide: Bush ignored terror threat 
  Since you read  bartcop.com  you knew this years ago.

  Click  Here

 The White House's former top anti-terrorism adviser says Bush ignored warnings
 about al-Qaeda and ordered him to find a link between 9-11 and Iraq.

 Clarke says that within a week of Bush's inauguration, he sought a meeting with
 senior Cabinet officials to discuss the threat from al-Qaeda. He says he met with
 Cabinet deputies months later.

 Stephen Hadley, No. 2 on the National Security Council, denied that warnings were ignored. .

 Horse hockey!
 Bush went on repeated, month long vacations and then this happened.


 Of course warnings were ignored, but funny... John Ashcroft knew
 to stop flying commercial planes, but they never let us in on the reason.

 Truth is, 9-11 was the best thing that could happen to Bush.

 It united the country behind him, gave him an excuse to rewrite the Constitution,
 gave him an excuse to have a shadow government with a black budget,
 gave him an excuse to invade any country he wants on the slimmest of whims
 and anyone who objects to anything is branded a traitor by the news networks.


"If the Poles can figure out Bush lied about Saddam and the WMDs,
  why can't America figure it out?"
   -- Bill Maher on his HBO show

 Tunnel may have let terror suspects flee 
  Gee, what a surprise, ...they let the bad guys slip away again?

  Click  Here

 Pakistani forces discovered a mile-long tunnel leading from a besieged mud fortress to a dry stream bed,
 and said Monday the secret passage may have allowed top al-Qaida suspects to escape toward the Afghan frontier.

 The tunnel, which undoubtedly took months to construct, was an indication an important fugitive was in the area
 at some point. Waziristan is considered the most likely hideout for al-Zawahri and his boss, Osama bin Laden .

 So, the BFEE lets another boogeyman slip thru their fingers. The networks will say that the never-elected Bush team
 is the best team to better fight the war against the organization that has beaten the Bush Team time after time.

 For four days, thousands of Pakistan troops totally surrounded the evil Al Qaeda, but nobody thought
 to look a mere mile away for an escape tunnel for the world's most wanted terrorists of all time?


"I began saying, 'We have to deal with bin Laden; we have to deal with al Qaeda.'
  Paul Wolfowitz, the Deputy Secretary of Defense, said, 'No, no, no. We don't have to
  deal with al Qaeda. Why are we talking about that little guy? We have to talk about
  Iraqi terrorism against the United States.' And I said, 'Paul, there hasn't been any
  Iraqi terrorism against the United States in eight years!' And I turned to the deputy
  director of the CIA and said, 'Isn't that right?' And he said, 'Yeah, that's right.
  There is no Iraqi terrorism against the United States."
     --Richard Clarke, Bush's senior terrorism expert, on 60 Minutes Sunday  Attribution

 Report Says Medicare to Go Broke by 2019
  Remember, we had a surplus until Bush looted the Treasury

  Click  Here

 Medicare will have to begin dipping into its trust fund this year to keep up with
 expenditures and will go broke by 2019 without changes in a program that is
 swelling because of rising health costs, trustees reported Tuesday.

 The deteriorating financial picture for the health care program for older and disabled
 Americans is a result, in part, of the new Medicare prescription drug law that will swell
 costs by more than $500 billion over 10 years, according to the annual report by government trustees.

 Will Kerry have the courage to use this against the biggest spender in all of history?
 Or will he allow Bush's "tax and spend" lies to stick to him like a Mondale?


"I think it's unfair to blame the president for the spread of terror and the diffuseness of it.
  Even if he had followed the advice of me and many other people, I still think the same thing would have happened."
       -- Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., helping Bush at Kerry's expense  Attribution

  ...that's what Democrats do.

 Rantisi Named Leader of Hamas in Gaza

  Click  Here

 Abdel Aziz Rantisi, a hard-liner who rejects all compromise with Israel, was chosen
 Tuesday as the new Hamas leader, one day after the group's founder was assassinated by Israel.
 Rantisi told The Associated Press that Hamas would press for more attacks against Israel.

"We will be unified in the trenches of resistance," the 54-year-old pediatrician said.
"We will not surrender, we will never surrender to Israeli terror."

 As you know - I know nothing about this mess and that will continue.
 But the AP described the guy Sharon killed as a "moderate" and now he's
 been replaced by a hard-liner who sounds like he's really into blowing shit up.

 What great news for the BFEE.
 You see, the BFEE is in the business of war.
 They can't make any money in peacetime, so they start wars when wars aren't needed
 so they can make those multi-billion dollar deals between your tax money and Halliburton.

 America - are ya happy?

 BFEE plays 'Kill Clarke card" 

  Click  Here

 In the wake of Richard Clarke's well-supported assertions that the Bush Administration neglected
 counterterrorism in the face of repeated terror warnings before 9/11, the Bush Administration has
 launched a frantic misinformation campaign - often contradicting itself in the process.

 Well done article explaining what the BFEE did.

 ...the planet's f-ing wealth is up for grabs.

 You think the BFEE doesn't want that prize?


"Nothing America could have done would have provided al-Qaida and its new generation
  of cloned groups a better recruitment device than our unprovoked invasion of an oil-rich
  Arab country. One shudders to think what additional errors (Bush) will make in the next
  four years to strengthen the al-Qaida follow-ons: attacking Syria or Iran, undermining
  the Saudi regime without a plan for a successor state?"
        --Richard Clarke,  former top anti-terrorism aide  Attribution

 Question: Why was US Rep. Christopher Shays (D-CT) on FOX News Sunday
                             praising the fraudulent Bush boy while stabbing John Kerry in the back?

 Answer: Because he's a Democrat   ...that's what Democrats do.

 Note added later: Turns out Shays is a Rethug, not a Democrat. I don't know the man,
 so I Googled him and thought I saw "D" after his name.  bartcop.com  regrets the error.

  Dueling Quotes

"Let's keep it civil so we don't get so nasty that we discourage people from coming out and voting
  in a very important election.  Kerry must "make sure that we carry on this debate in a way that
  doesn't send a mixed message to the Iraqis or our troops there, or to our enemies there...
  ...so let's not divide ourselves right now."
       --Sen. Joe Lieberman, blaming Kerry for the Bush attack machine on FOX News, where they love him  Attribution

    ...that's what Democrats do.

"If I see nothing else accomplished before I die, I hope I at least live long enough to watch that
  stinking whore Lieberman run out of the Senate, and, if possible, out of the Democratic Party."

"Well it took over a year, but finally Cheney suggested if it were up to Sen. John Kerry, ``
  ... Saddam would still be in power in Iraq.'' Yes, and more than 570 American military
  personnel might still be alive. And hundreds more of the 3,000 soldiers wounded in Bush's
  vanity war would not need to be fitted with a prosthetic limb. And countless other U.S. families
  would not have had their lives imploded simply because the president took a "Get Smart"
  intelligence approach to going to war.

 Two-Year-Old Enron Grand Jury Still on the Job

  Click  Here

 The special grand jury appointed two years ago to probe the Enron collapse has issued more
 than two dozen indictments but will not be disbanded until prosecutors finish investigating the
 remaining suspects, lawyers said on Monday. The Enron grand jury was impaneled in Houston
 on March 27, 2002, a little more than three months after Enron's nosedive into a record-breaking
 bankruptcy after a massive accounting fraud and billions in hidden debt were revealed.

 Martha is already convicted while Bush has Kenny Boy's prosecutors slow-playing his crimes.
 Is anyone surprised?

 The first segment cuts off abruptly. Tommy does so much good work with the show that it seems
 strange that he doesn't end each segment with a bumper.  I haven't had a chance to listen to the
 rest of it yet, but may tomorrow. I'll write you then if there's anything else you should know about.

 Keep up the good work

 It's frustrating getting mail like this.
 I went in the Members section and clicked Show 30 Part 1and it played fine - all the way to the end.

 Perhaps you're using Real Player?    It's my opinion that Real Player blows.
 I use Winamp or Windows Media Player and they play fine for me.

Bush's American soldier body count in Iraq
 Bush lied, and caused 583 586  Americans their lives - and counting.

Or is the real figure over 1200?


 Subject: Moving Israelis to Oklahoma?

 Dear Bartcop,

 As an Israeli citizen, I will take my chances on being killed by suicide bombers in Haifa

 Recording Industry Web Site Downed
  Whoever did this should be ashamed of themselves

  Click  Here

 The Web site for the recording industry's anti-piracy lobby has been inaccessible for
 several days, possibly the victim of a computer virus specifically targeting the site.

 The RIAA site has been attacked several times since July 2002. As the trade organization
 for the major recording label, the RIAA has been at the forefront of efforts to stop file-sharing programs.

 Maybe the RIAA needs fewer lawyers attacking kids and more techies.

 Subject: Why I subscribed to BartCop Radio

 I've done it twice.
 The reason is I go to this darn page every day and like the radio shows when I get a chance to listen to them.

 I know there are those who choose to vote with their dollars whenever they'd split a hair differently than you do.
 I'm not so sure that makes any sense at all--I don't believe we have to agree one hundred percent in order for your
 service to be of value to me. I remember once, a few years ago, I hadn't subscribed (don't even know if you were
 doing subs then) and got rubbed the wrong way by something you wrote, and I made this big stand in my own mind
 that I wasn't going back there to that page 'cause I just couldn't believe bart said that.

 Then I realized, months later, that I was itchin' to go back and look. Then you started taking subscriptions and I knew
 I had to subscribe. I think something people should keep in mind is that this is entertainment that also informs. It's not
 buying a political candidate so you can control his positions--it's buying access to a funny and informative site and radio show.

 If someone subscribes to an arts series or a lecture series, one doesn't unsubscribe forever because one play or lecture
 is not agreeable, though of quality. It's the same thing with your page. I read your page and listen to your radio shows
 because I can't find the same thing elsewhere and can't do without what I've come to appreciate in terms of your content.

 I don't think of it as buying a piece of your mind--I have my own opinions and outlets for them. I think of it as building the
 hammer higher and keeping something I've come to really enjoy available to me. Basically, if liberals can't agree to disagree
 on the finer points of our ideology, we're doomed to work at cross purposes toward the same ends--being a subscriber to
 your page has taught me some valuable lessons, basically, about how easy it is to be an armchair quarterback and
 conveniently rationalize not subscribing, like people who hear one report they disagree with on NPR and continue to listen
 everyday but justify not supporting the programming financially. It's irresponsible and, if anything, disqualifies one from
 being critical. Screw the snootypants who are leftier than thou.

 You rock, Bart!

 Wag the Osama
   by Margie Burns

 Another typical phrasing has Bin Laden under increasing pressure, and it's only a matter of time till we "get" him.

 What is not said is that we'll capture him; media reports sometimes say that, but US officials don't.  Nor do they say
 that OBL's people are being pressured to hand him over, or that we want him for questioning because we want to
 find out much, much more about the plotting behind those attacks.  Indeed, since September, 2001, no administration
 official has said, "We desperately want to pull in Bin Laden.  We want to know everything he could tell us."
 Instead, Bush started making little "dead or alive" noises; a good slogan for a t-shirt, but not exactly Intel.
