"The facts are these, George Tenet briefed me on a regular basis about the terrorist threat,
  and had my administration had any information that terrorists were going to attack New York
  City on 9/11, we would have acted. We have been chasing down al-Qaida, ever since those attacks."
      -- Dubya, assuring America that if he had known Muhommad Atta was going to crash that particular jet

 The Ghost of 9-11 Rises 
  Bush bungled our defense, then was caught lying


  Click  Here

 According to the Washington Post, 16 million viewers watched the interview as Clarke, who served for ten years
 as a top White House official in four administrations, revealed how little Bush and his advisors did to prevent an
 attack by Al Qaeda and how they immediately jumped on the attack as the excuse they were waiting for to go after Iraq.
 When one considers the demographics of the program's viewers--over 30, aware of current events, and active voters,
 that spells serious trouble for the Bush campaign.

 Clarke didn't mince words.

"Frankly," he told Stahl, "I find it outrageous that the president is running for re-election on the grounds that he's done
 such great things about terrorism. He ignored it. He ignored terrorism for months, when maybe we could have done
 something to stop 9/11. Maybe We'll never know. I think he's done a terrible job on the war against terrorism."


"I worry about terrorist groups targeting America. There are still serious threats because of
  what we stand for.  There are still people who want to harm our country. And so whether it be
  a Hamas threat or an al-Qaida threat, we take them very seriously."
    -- Dubya, fanning the flames in the Middle East, urging Hamas to 'Bring it on"   Attribution

 Panel: CIA unsure of action on bin Laden 
  GOP says Clinton should've killed first and asked questions later

  Click  Here

 Three times in the late 1990s, Clinton administration officials had reports on bin Laden's
 whereabouts that seemed credible enough to plan attacks, but not enough to carry them out.

 In each case, CIA Director George Tenet, Bush's "Mr. Perfect," opposed the attacks because
 the intelligence came from a single, uncorroborated source and there was a risk of innocents
 being killed, according to a preliminary report from the 9-11 commission.

 But you watch - for the next 20 years, talk radio Nazi's will say Clinton "had" bin Laden and let
 him go because he was weak, but it turns out Bush's best friend George Tenet is who saved Osama.



"With the Spanish election, we are witnessing a capitulation to savagery that makes
  full-scale war inevitable. The Democratic candidate wants to represent Godless Europeans.
  The Republican candidate wants to represent Americans."
    --Ann Coulter, de facto leader of the Republican party   Attribution

 Why is Condi Rice refusing to testifty?
  If she's not covering up BFEE crimes, why can't she talk?

  Click  Here

 It is possible that she is simply avoiding the public embarrassment certain questions are sure to bring her.
 For example, on May 16, 2002 our national security advisor said: "I don't think anybody could have predicted
 that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile." True, her expertise does lie
 elsewhere. While a professor of Political Science at Stanford she specialized in Eastern European studies and her
 first job at the White House was Director, and then Senior Director, of Soviet and East European Affairs in the
 National Security Council. Perhaps her focus was too narrow to include other areas of the world. But as national
 security advisor she at least ought to have widened her horizons and made herself more open to what else was
 going on in the world.

 For example, Kristen Breitweiser, one of four New Jersey widows of the 9/11 disaster who also lobbied Congress
 and the president to appoint this commission made this simple observation: "How is it possible we have a national
 security advisor coming out and saying we had no idea they could use planes as weapons when we had FBI records
 from 1991 stating that this is a possibility."

 What is Condi afraid of?
 What is she hiding?
 What hidden truths nust remain hidden?
 How guilty is the BFEE, and who would do time to protect The Monkey?

 Supreme Court to Take Up 'Under God'
  Good friend of  bartcop.com  tries to get logic in Constitution


  Click  Here

 Americans overwhelmingly want the phrase "under God" preserved in the Pledge
 of Allegiance, a new poll says as the Supreme Court on Wednesday examines
 whether the classroom salute crosses the division of church and state.

 The Supreme Court was hearing arguments from a California atheist who objected
 to the daily pledges in his 9-year-old daughter's classroom. He sued her school and won,
 setting up the landmark appeal before a court that has repeatedly barred school-sponsored
 prayer from classrooms, playing fields and school ceremonies.

"It's not a popularity contest. If something is wrong, it should be corrected. No matter how
 many people support it," he said. "The argument that `under God' in the pledge is pushing
 religion on children is wrong on the law. It's also wrong from a common sense perspective." .


 I expect the high court to do what they always do: Call Bush and ask him what he wants.
 The Pledge needs "under God" in it like it needs a mention of  bartcop.com

 Why force a child to pledge to that which she does not believe? Because a majority
 of the parents of her classmates can't break free from their superstitious shackles?

 This worked with that goofy monument in Alabama, so we'll try it again here:
 Why if I wanted your child to swear that Shirley was the high priestess of rock?

 Do you want your child to be forced to pledge that every morning at school?
 Or would that have no business in a pledge to support our flag?

 Clarke's Book Shows Why Bush Fears Truth 
   by Joe Conason

  Click  Here

"Mr. Clarke is a nonpartisan professional who has devoted his life to national security, serving four Presidents
 of both parties during a distinguished public career that spanned 30 years. Unlike most of those who have rushed
 to criticize him, he rose to the highest levels of government strictly on merit rather than family or political connections.
 His devotion to duty and his qualifications in his field may be measured by his role on Sept. 11, 2001. He ran the
 Situation Room in the hours immediately after the attacks, while the President flew to Offutt Air Force Base and
 the Vice President sat in a fortified bunker; and when the White House was evacuated in fear of another suicidal
 crash assault, he stayed there to continue his work...

 Vice President Dick Cheney, who now prevaricates shamelessly on Rush Limbaugh's radio program, proclaimed
 in May 2001 that he would undertake an immediate review of the nation's preparedness to deal with terrorism.
 As The Washington Post reported in January 2002, that review was postponed until after Sept. 11. The Vice
 President was busy meeting with energy lobbyists instead of responding to the urgent findings of the Hart-Rudman
 commission's crucial, multi-volume study of homeland insecurity."

 Military Families Call on Congress to Censure President Bush

 Families of soldiers serving, as well as of those who have been casualties, in the occupation of Iraq came
 to Capitol Hill Wednesday with other volunteers, urging Congress to censure President George W. Bush.
 The volunteers carried petitions filling 18 large boxes and signed by 560,340 members of MoveOn.org from
 every congressional district, to offices in the House of Representatives, reinforcing the demand for a censure resolution.

 While continuing to bleat that the Clinton administration should've done more about bin laden,
 Colin Powell was asked, "If you knew bin Laden was a threat, what steps did you take
 between Inauguration day and September 11th?"

 Powell replied that they quickly began working on a three year plan to get him.

 A three year plan?
 To stop an attack the FBI and CIA says is "imminent?"

 Bush rubs black man's head for luck
  saw it on  counterbias.com


  Click  Here

 Mr Bush was introduced by an African-American male, whose head Mr Bush proceeded to rub while grinning and smirking.

 The man, identified as Alphonso Jackson, acting Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
 appeared somewhat bewildered while still preserving an appearance of happiness to welcome Mr. Bush.

 As an individual identified as Cory wrote in letter published online, rubbing an African American's head for luck was at one time
 thought of as a "joke amongst those who didn't generally say "black person" when referring to one". He noted that the racist
 practice "may well have faded into obscurity", but would've been "a good way to lose a hand" in more multi-racial neighborhoods
 in the late seventies and early eighties.

 That's OK, Bush can ridicule any minority he wants because he almost won the election.
 I mean, what can the guy do?  Say "Get your filthy racist hand off my head?"

 ...and why doesn't Condi or one of the adults tell him to stop doing this?

 Have you noticed Bush has finally, after two plus years, stopped telling his "trifecta" joke?

 Why does it take them years to correct what a child would know automatically?

 You don't tell off-color jokes at a funeral, especially when they died on your watch.?

 Carter savages Blair and Bush
  "Their war was based on lies"

  Click  Here

"There was no reason for us to become involved in Iraq recently," Carter told Britain's daily The Independent.
"That was a war based on lies and misinterpretations from London and from Washington, claiming falsely that
 Saddam was responsible for 9/11, claiming falsely that Iraq had WMDa. And I think that Bush and Blair
 probably knew that many of the allegations were based on uncertain intelligence a decision was made to
 go to war (then people said) 'let's find a reason to do so'."

 Of course, this story had to come from overseas because we can't criticize Bush in America.

 Subject: Battle Stations?

 CLAIM #4:

"In June and July when the threat spikes were so high...we were at battle stations...
 The fact of the matter is that the administration focused on this before 9/11."
     - National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, 3/22/04  Attribution

 I'm pretty sure that if your country is at "battle stations" then you ought to have more than
 just a handful of fighter jets in the air for some 20,000 miles of border, and you don't sit and
 read a book for 20 minutes when the attacks start.  Unless they do things differently in the
 Texas Air National Guard, which is entirely plausible.


 Tab, great point.
 So why were our jet fighters told to stand down?
 Can you be at "battle stations" while sipping lemonade in Crawford for a month?


 If America was at "battle stations" on 9-11, I'd hate to see what a surprise attack looks like.

 Bush would still be reading The Hungry Catterpiller  to those kids until they told him to stop.

'Frasier' Cast Tapes Its Final Episode
  How sad when a comedy stays 2-3 years too long

  Click  Here

 Hugs, champagne toasts and poetry marked the filming of the last "Frasier" after a remarkable 11-year run.
 The series, which started as a spinoff of "Cheers," will end with an hour-long finale airing May 13.

 In its long run, the series became the most Emmy Award winning show ever, with 31 trophies,
 including five consecutive best comedy series awards.

 The departure of "Frasier" leaves behind a comedy void at NBC and in television. The network
 is also seeing the end of its most successful comedy, "Friends," this season.

 I accidentally surfed into a recent Frazier episode and I was struck by how much the characters had
 aged since I had last seen the show.  Once the funniest show on TV, the good writers left and Kelsey
 Grammar turned the show into his personal toy and it soon became completely unwatchable.

 When Prince was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of fame, he said,
 "A true mentor isn't somebody on your payroll."

 Kelsey Grammer destroys one of TV's best shows, the Letterman show has become a hollow shell
 of it's former greatness, and even Britney Spears getting married while too drunk to walk in Las Vegas.
 In all three cases, I'll bet their mentors were on the payroll, so they got advice like saddam did.
 Nobody wants to say what needs to be said and train wrecks unsued.  Too bad Kelsey, Dave and.
 Britney didn;t have a friend to say, "Hey, you're screwing up - you're blowing this."

 Recently I went on a tour bus with a bunch of senior citizens.  This trip was a pivotal point in my political education!

 Silver Star recipient finds troubles back home

  Click  Here

 Just last month Turner, a 101st Airborne Division soldier, was honored with the
 Silver Star medal for saving at least two lives in combat. Today he is out of the Army,
 driving a borrowed car and sleeping at a friend's house.

 The smile he beamed at the medal ceremony masked months of problems he says he
 experienced since returning home with battle wounds: a suicide attempt, along with
 flashbacks and nightmares so bad he resorted to binge drinking to fall asleep.

 He said that because he had been absent without leave for two days and smoked marijuana
 while drunk, he received a general discharge rather than an honorable discharge.

 That means he is not eligible for at least $40,000 in college funding he expected to receive.
 The Army also demoted him to private before his discharge.

 Turner, who still walks with a limp, said his problems relate to his struggles back home after the war.

"They don't understand," he said. "They think you're pretty much supposed to be normal when
 you come back from war, and I don't understand that."

 This looks like a way for the Army to save money.

 After George W Bush deserted for a year-long cocaine binge, he was handed the White House
 and he didn't even win the election.  When the genuine war hero missed two days and smoked pot,
 the Army sees a chance to save $40K so they throw this guy out onto the street a broken man?
