Quote of the Day
"Isn't it time somebody asked Louis Freeh why
"A recent report by the GAO found that, so
far, Barrett's investigation of the Henry Cisneros
has cost $20,509,928, plus whatever has been spent over the past six months. An even more
expensive investigation -- one headed by Kenneth Starr into allegations against Clinton -- officially
closed last month. Attorney Julie Thomas, who replaced Robert Ray who replaced Starr, pulled the
plug officially on March 19, ending more than a decade of federal investigation of Clinton. The cost
of that investigation, which led to Clinton's impeachment and eventual acquittal by the Senate,
was $72,768,285 through the end of September, according to the GAO."

Don't forget the hundreds of millions the media spent trying to find Clinton guilty of something.
Decades from now, when the last legally elected president passes,

Chaos Erupts in Parts of Central Iraq
On the anniversary of the fall of Saddam's regime, Baghdad and parts of central Iraq were chaotic.
One Marine was killed in Fallujah and another
wounded in exchanges of fire after U.S. forces
called a halt to offensive operations in the city, a spokesman said.
The death - along with those of three Marines
a day earlier announced Friday - brought the toll
of U.S. troops killed across Iraq this week to 46. The fighting has killed more than 460 Iraqis -
including more than 280 in Fallujah, a hospital official said. At least 647 U.S. soldiers have died
in Iraq since the war began in March 2003.
...but the networks keep telling us Bush knows what he's doing.
Bush given hijack alert before 9/11
The Bush administration was yesterday striving to play down the political impact of a secret document
it was forced to release warning the president, weeks before the September 11 attacks, about "patterns
of suspicious activity" in the US "consistent with preparations for hijackings".
The document, a daily intelligence briefing
provided to President George Bush on August 6 2001, also
mentioned "recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York" and a CIA-FBI investigation into a
tip-off to the US embassy in the United Arab Emirates alleging an al-Qaida cell was in the US
"planning attacks with explosives".
...and then the never-elected Monkey went on another vacation, but people like the way he handles terrorism?

Lam Nguyen's job is to sit for hours in a chilly, quiet room and look at pornography.
This job is the focal point of the Justice Department's operation to rid the nation of porn.
FBI agents detailed to the task are spending
millions of dollars to bring obscenity cases to trial
for the first time in 10 years. Nothing is off limits, they warn, even soft-core cable TV
programs such as HBO's long-running Real Sex or the adult movies offered in guestrooms of hotels.
They'll claim they're doing it "to

Next it'll be pre-emptive strikes against those who might be wanting to acquire porn.
Then they'll go after people with (or who read) web sites that "don't promote unity in America," which is you and me.

Grows on Iraqi Governing Council
The news keeps getting worse for Bush, Iraq, America and the world
Anger grew Friday among U.S.-picked Iraqi leaders over the Marines' bloody siege of Fallujah,
with one member of the Governing Council suspending his membership and another threatening to quit.
Several of the council's 25 members spoke
out against what they called the "mass punishment" of
Fallujah's people in thesiege, launched Monday by U.S.forces to uproot Sunni insurgents in the city.
"These U.S. operations were a mass punishment
for the people of Fallujah," Pachachi told Al-Arabiya TV.
"It was not right to punish all the people of Fallujah and we consider these operations by the Americans
unacceptable and illegal."
That Sadr dude had 20,000 followers at his rally over the weekend.

Subject: The media
At every election season our politicians
feel compelled to hoot a few hoots and dance a few jigs for the little
just to make sure we all still believe they are good and decent and trying to do our will. They put on a show they hope
will force from our minds all memory of their recent betrayals. With fists pounding they shout all the right and sensible
words we have for so long needed to hear. In other words, they lie to us through their pearly whites.
Unfortunately this one is shaping up to
be the double whammy hootin' nanny lie-fest of all times, with the regular
and Company cast of characters being accompanied FRONTSTAGE by their entire backstage crew...The American Media!
Until recently this right-wing owned group
of professional power brokers and kingmakers have covertly flavored and
all significant public discourse while maintaining the appearance of moderation. The truth of the inept and extremely dishonest
bunglings of this White House has strained the ability of the media to lie, hide and pretend, causing their bias to show like a
pair of 40 Ds in a training bra. Suddenly, now that it's drawing close to the time when it will be supremely important to our
suppliers of misinformation that we believe them to be our 'Protectors of Democracy', they are forced by their own culpability
to begin to slightly open the spigots of truth, hoping to make a new impression that will help us quickly forget we were ever denied.
Editorials now speak unexpected truths,
disturbing and provocative pictures of our dead and disabled are finally
frontpages as if love for our children was somehow put on hold for the past year, and now not even our Oscar nominees are
being told not to talk about Bush crimes because John Ashcroft will come get you. All of this change is designed to prepare us
for the selling of the super-duper colossal lie of all time; the lie that George W. Bush has beaten John Kerry.
We are being worked by a lap dog that is
too cowardly to face Bush, and therefore far too cowardly to face the wrath
American people. The likes of Leslie Blitzer (Calls himself Wolf) the staff at Fox News, and the ready-to-snap-under-the-pressure
CBS management would do well to realize the penalty that lies in store for those who would steal Democracy from the citizens
of the greatest nation in history.

You must not act the way you were brought up
"...standard operating procedures for dealing with possibly hijacked airplanes were not followed on 9/11.
Those procedures call for fighter jets to be sent out immediately upon any sign that a plane may have been hijacked.
These jets typically get to the plane within no later than 15 minutes anywhere in the United States. And on that day,
there were four airplanes that went for a half-hour or more after they were hijacked without jets intercepting them.
What's the official explanation of that?
I'm afraid the press has not done its job.
They have not forced government officials to explain why standard operating
procedures were not followed that day, nor have they pressed the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) to explain
why they didn't report these hijackings as they were supposed to.
Couldn't it have been that he was trying
to project calm in the eye of the storm,
that this was Bush projecting Churchillian resolve in the face of calamity?
People who want to believe such things can,
of course, imagine such scenarios. But the
president in a situation like that does not make the decisions; the Secret Service team makes the decisions. And the guys
in the Secret Service are trained to be ready for a catastrophe like this where they make snap decisions and whisk the
president to safety immediately. They would have had an escape route planned; they would have had contingencies planned
- they always do. It is at least not very plausible to think they would have remained there and endangered the lives of all
the children and teachers at that school in order to exude that Churchillian confidence.
What about Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania?
...there was debris from the plan eight
miles from the crash site, suggesting the plane had been hit and stuff
started falling out.
And one of the engines was found over a mile from the crash site. Of course, if it had been a missile that downed the plane,
it most likely would have been a heat-seeking missile that would have found the engine and knocked it off.
It's creepy when a guy makes charges like this and they seem to
WHY did all our planes stay on the ground that day?
WHY wasn't Bush whisked away like Cheney claims he was?
WHY was that engine found over a mile away? Did it bounce a mile after hitting the field?
Worst of all, WHY won't the press or the 9-11 panel ask these simple questions and demand answers?

At least 20,000 worshippers, about twice the usual number, gathered for weekly prayers at
a mosque run by radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, indicating that he may be winning sympathy
from more Shiites as his militia challenges U.S. authority in Baghdad as well as across central and southern Iraq.
The U.S.-led coalition, however, says the
appeal of al-Sadr's movement is limited. But Friday's turnout was
an indication that al-Sadr's anti-American rhetoric resonates with Shiite youths frustrated by what they see
as U.S. failures in Iraq and by older clerics' tolerance of the American occupation. .
Subject: Bob Kerrey
I think you are absolutely right, Bart;
decent human beings do terrible things to other human beings
when they are imbroiled in a war. I can attest to this as a combat Infantryman in World War 2, and,
as I think back to those days, I often feel ashamed of some of the actions of our troops.
Often, some of our men raped and looted,
and in some cases, killed enemy troops who were surrendering.
In Malmedy, during the Battle of the Bulge, our men, once captured by German troops, were slaughtered by
their captors, among whom, I am certain, were many "decent", humane people when back home in Stuttgart or Frankfurt.
This is NOT to say that I have respect for
Bob Kerrey; I would have court martialled the murderous bastard,
rather than decorate him, for killing innocent civilians, including kids. The horse's ass did not even have sense enough
to refrain from attacking Clinton as being a liar about a blow-job, when the target should have been a lying president
who is responsible for hundreds of our men and women being killed and thousands being maimed !
Keep up the fine work; we need you !

Gunmen shot down a U.S. attack helicopter near Baghdad on Sunday, killing two crewmembers.
A fragile cease-fire held between Sunni insurgents and Marines in the city of Fallujah, while the U.S.
military suggested it's open to a negotiated solution in its showdown with a radical Shiite cleric in the south.
We're offering to negotiate?
First we announce that "It's payback time!" then we say "We're going to arrest Sadr!"
and now we're asking them for their terms to negotiate?
I thought if there was one thing Bush could do well it would be
to play the part of the big, bad bully - but he can't even get that right.

Maker DuPont to Cut 3,500 Jobs
But the networks and papers love what Bush is doing for the economy...
DuPont, the No. 2 U.S. chemicals maker, on Monday said it will cut 3,500 jobs as part of a
previously announced plan to reduce costs by $900 million in the face of high raw material prices.
DuPont late last year announced plans to
cut jobs -- with half the cuts to be taken this year and
the rest next year -- but declined at the time to disclose details. DuPont said that by the end of this year,
about 3,000 jobs will be eliminated through severance programs and about 500 through normal attrition.

All's Well in Iraq -- Just Ask the Dead
Shell-shocked wives of soldiers are racing home from Oceanside beauty salons to see if their husbands
are among the latest casualties in Iraq. But there's nothing to worry about.
The Shiite uprising appears to be throwing
the entire country into bloody chaos, and weary American soldiers
are being ordered to extend their tours of duty. But you have some good moments and some less good moments
in these kinds of enterprises, as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said.
If things were spinning out of control,
would President Bush be on Easter holiday at the ranch in Texas,
where he was visited Thursday by members of the National Rifle Assn., Ducks Unlimited and Pheasants Forever?
Twelve Camp Pendleton Marines have been
killed in the last week, most of them in one horrific battle Tuesday.
But there's no "major combat" in Iraq, the president's flack assured us even as several cities were under fire and
up for grabs. It's just that a "relatively small number of extremist elements" are being pesky little insurgents.
Can you really even call it a war?
In a war, you honor the dead by greeting
their return to American soil. But media, and sometimes even
family members, are still banned from air bases as the bodies arrive. The White House doesn't want us
to get the crazy idea that Operation Iraqi Freedom has gravediggers working overtime.

to be completely taken in by this propaganda and it is still difficult for me to overcome
the emotional response to any oriental man.
We teach our soldiers to kill. Of
course this is essential---but to do this we must override
whatever moral ethical concerns that drive these people in daily life. After their service for
the protection of our country we send 'em back to "civilization" saying thanks, job well done
now go back to "normal" life.
All the WWII veterans I know who were involved
in actual combat NEVER want to talk about it.
One man, just before he died, told me about killing a young German boy point blank. He cried.
It takes an exceptional person to do the things required in combat then return to normal life,
forgive him/her self and go on. I have never met a career soldier who had been involved in
combat who advocated war as the best solution to any problem. War is hell.

9/11: the Saudis Who Slipped Away
After 2.5 years, the media finally covers the bin Laden story
When the 9/11 commission resumes its hearings Tuesday, it will be fascinating to see
whether it addresses what may be the most serious security failure related to the attacks:
the evacuation of about 140 Saudis almost immediately after 9/11.
Think about it: U.S. intelligence knew that
15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi. Analysts
also knew that Saudi money was a major force behind Al Qaeda. And, of course,
Osama bin Laden, the perpetrator of the worst crime on American soil, was Saudi.
It is standard practice in murder investigations
to interview friends and relatives of the
primary suspect. One of the highest U.S. security priorities should have been the interrogation
of Bin Laden's relatives and other Saudis who, inadvertently or not, may have funded him.
The never-elected Monkey's father works
for the House of Saud.
They own him.
That means they get to break whatever rules they want, and they are invulnerable from the law.

"This is Bush's 33rd visit to his ranch since becoming president. He has spent all or part of 233 days on his
Texas ranch since taking office ... Adding his 78 visits to Camp David and his five visits to Kennebunkport,
Bush has spent all or part of 500 days in office at one of his three retreats, or more than 40 percent of his presidency."

He scours "any newscast" he can find for liberal bias, and I'll

The next day, we each present five clips that show bias, and the Monkey jury decides
if FOX is more biased or "any newscast" is more biased.
But they won't do it, because they know FOX is one giant gaggle

Their idea of "liberal bias" is when Dan Rather says,"Jesse Helms is a conservative."
