"Suppressing dissent only increases radicalism.
"With the benefit of minute hindsight, Saddam
wasn't the kind of extra-territorial menace
that was assumed by the administration one year ago. If I knew then what I know now
about what kind of situation we would be in, I would have opposed the war."

Billion of revenue from oil 'missing'
Who could've foreseen that the B.F.E.E. would steal?
A Christian charity has accused the coalition authority in Iraq of failing to account for up to $20bn
(nearly £11bn) of oil revenues which should have been spent on relief and reconstruction projects.
Christian Aid, in a report today, claims that
the [BFEE], which hands over power to
an interim administration in Iraq this week, is in flagrant breach of the UN security
council resolution which gave it control of the country's oil revenues.
Resolution 1483, passed in May 2003, stated
that the money should be spent in the interests
of the Iraqi people and independently audited, but an auditor was appointed only in April.
The charity quoted an unnamed UN diplomat
as saying: "We only have the total amounts and
movements in and out of the development fund. We have absolutely no knowledge of what
purposes they are for and if these are consistent with the security council resolution."
Last October, Christian Aid revealed that
$4bn of oil revenues were unaccounted for, but although
procedures have been tightened up, the charity said, "we still do not know exactly how Iraq's money
has been earned, which companies have won the contracts that it has been spent on, or whether this
spending was in the interests of the Iraqi people."
According to the coalition's latest figures,
the development fund has received $10.7bn.
Yet it also admits that $12.5bn has been generated since June 2003. When 5% is taken away to
pay for Kuwaiti compensation, $1.2bn is still missing, say the Liberal Democrats.
You guys are chumps if you think the BFEE
only stole $20 billion.
2,500,000 barrels a day x $40 a barrel = $100 million per day.
We've been there a lot longer than 200 days, and don't forget the trillions missing from the
Treasury and the hundreds of billions Bush will tell us about after he steals this election.
Add to that the billion dollar kickbacks
from halliburton and the illegally-awarded no-bid
contracts on everything from food to cell phones to laundry and transportation.
...and before you get excited that "liberal
Democrats" are fighting back,
they're talking about British democrats - ours are still wetting themselves with fear.

L.A. Suspect Denies Police Story
Says he was carrying nothing when cops beat him on camera
Suspected car thief Stanley Miller told his lawyer Monday that he wasn't carrying
any metal objects when he was struck 11 times with a flashlight as he lay on the
ground after a chase last week, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
"If (police) came up with something, the
information I'm getting is they either planted it
on him or they're making it up," attorney Mark Werksman said after a jailhouse interview with Miller.
Werksman said Miller told him he was wearing
sweat pants with loose pockets that would not
hold his possessions, so he had his cell phone in one hand and $8 in cash in the other as he ran.
Are Los Angeles cops crazy?
Or do they just have more cameras in southern California?

Misleads About Transfer of Power in Iraq
...and the press sings the praises of our brave "war president"
Speaking at the NATO conference in Turkey Monday, President Bush said,
"Fifteen months after the liberation of Iraq...the world witnessed the arrival of
a free and sovereign Iraqi government."1 The reality, however, is much different.
You bet it is.
Bush and the American press tell us how wonderful this is, yet they had to sneak
the paperwork thru in the middle of the night to get around the constant terror bombings.
They couldn't even have a formal handover
ceremony because Paul Bremer had to
stage his escape and get out of that blazing inferno of beheadings and death, but Bush
deserves another four years so he can Iraqize other nations in the area.

...if inaccurate statements are lies, the Times printed even more lies about Whitewater
than "weapons of mass destruction." Indeed, had editors heeded problems with its
"investigative" reporting during Clinton's first term when some of us started calling
attention to them, they might have spared themselves a lot of trouble. Judith Miller's
bad reporting about Iraq and Jeff Gerth's about Arkansas had certain basic
similarities: Both reporters went to places they knew little about, put themselves into
the hands of con men with axes to grind and suppressed dissenting voices eventually
As George Seldes observed, however, "the
most sacred cow of the press is the press
itself." Hence, The Washington Post, too, editorialized that Clinton's memoir "veers from
the nonfiction category" regarding Whitewater, adding: "The tangled real estate investments...
merited investigation, and the inquiry produced numerous convictions."

"The Chicago Tribune and a Los Angeles Family

Subject: Bush the never-elected
You totally called it when you said Bush would try stopping an election;
I thought it was tin foil hat stuff, but I stand corrected.
official seeks process for canceling Election over terrorism
If they cancel the election, there's no way Bush can lose it
The government needs to establish guidelines
for canceling or rescheduling elections if terrorists
strike the United States again, says the chairman of a new federal voting commission.
Such guidelines do not currently exist, said DeForest B. Soaries, head of the voting panel.
Soaries was appointed to the federal Election
Assistance Commission last year by Bush.
Soaries said he wrote to Kinda Sleazy Rice and Tom Ridge in April to raise the concerns.
I'm very confident that this illegal gang of thugs will not
turn loose of their absolute
If they think they need to, they'll blow up New York's tunnels themselves, then claim we can't hold an
election until the terror stops, which will be never since they're in charge.
Evidence indicates that Wellstone crash was no accident
The FBI's prompt arrival was peculiar. As Christopher Bollyn of American Free Press reported
(www.rumor millnews.net, Oct. 29, 2002), "According to Rick Wahlberg, then St. Louis County sheriff,
a team of FBI agents was quickly on the crash site about noon, less than an hour after (assistant manager Gary)
Ulman and the (fire) chief had first located the site and found a way to access the wreck. This FBI team had
come from the distant Twin Cities in record time!"
When Bollyn "asked Ulman if he had notified
the FBI about the accident, Ulman said he had not spoken with
the bureau at any time. Asked how the FBI got to the site so quickly, Ulman said that he assumed they had
come from Duluth. AFP contacted the Duluth office of the FBI and was told that the team of 'recovery' agents
had not come from Duluth but had traveled from the FBI office in Minneapolis."
I calculate that this team would have had
to have left the Twin Cities at about the same time the Wellstone plane
was taking off.
Note: I, Bart, am not saying this is a fact
and and that you must believe this.
I am saying IF the Senate is 50 50, or (Jeffords) 51/49, removing one stone in your shoe could solve
a lot of your problems. And if you have unlimited money and CIA help, very few things are out of your reach.
And if your goal is a takeover of the world's energy, losing Wellstone could solve a whole host of problems
- assuming evil men would kill to possess and sell all the energy on Earth.
"The women of America don't need two oil men
what they're allowed to do with their their own bodies."

If Bush wins in November, legally or like last time, the women

Too bad we can't get Kerry to mention that each time he speaks.

Bush meets a real reporter
I'm so old, I remember when reporters asked real questions
On the eve of his recent sojourn in Europe, President Bush had an unpleasant run-in
with a species of creature he had not previously encountered often: a journalist.
He did not react well to the experience.
Bush's minders usually leave him in the
gentle care of the White House press corps,
which can be counted on to ask him tough questions about when his summer vacation starts.
Apparently under the mistaken assumption
that reporters in the rest of the world are as
ill-informed and pliable as the stenographers who "cover" the White House,
Bush's aides scheduled a sit-down interview with Carole Coleman, Washington correspondent
for RTE, the Irish public television network..
This is great fun to watch.
Every time the Chimp answers a different question than the one asked, the reporter
interrupts and 4-5 times, depending on how you count it, Smirk scolds her saying,
"Let me ramble on about a hundred different non-sequitors instead of answering
your question because I'm stuck with Condi's script and that's all I'll say."
Watch the Irish reporter make Smirk eat it. Watch him screw
Maybe Michael Moore will have this in his next movie
Someone in the White House was tied to a tree and whipped for
a real reporter ask Bush real questions with followups.
"All during the Clinton years, there were wackos
on the right that made movies.
I didn't talk about them, and I wouldn't take callers who wanted to talk about
these movies, because I didn't want to be associated with them."
--Rush Limbaugh, talking about that sick shit Jerry falwell's "Clinton Chronicles."
Why would Rush suddenly change format and
tell the truth about something?

Greetings from California--CLINTON COUNTRY!
I saw the Moore/Hanna Storm interview and I laughed my ass off because it's true--
Michael Moore handed CBS their ASS, not once but during the ENTIRE INTERVIEW.
It was classic, and he should be hailed
as a great American for doing so.
Stop the goddamned cheerleading and ask the hard questions!
On another quickie note: I went to
a MATINEE viewing of Farenheit 911 today... 2:30 p.m.
on a TUESDAY, a WORK DAY.... the line was so long to buy a ticket it wrapped around the building
into the parking lot. The ticket gal said it's been like that since 911 opened. The movie was excellente
and of course it's propaganda. As if the daily White House press briefings AREN'T?
The true morsel was when DICK Cheney's hideously
polished noggin appeared on the full screen
and someone in the crowd yelled aloud, "HEY DICK, GO FUCK YOURSELF!" and the entire
moviehouse burst out into laughter, cheers and clapping!
See? There truly ARE great Americans out there..the networks just aren't willing to talk to them!

"The American people are not comfortable dealing
with words like "total failure" and "ruined credibility,"
but these are words that all of us are going to have to become accustomed to. A process that began in
September 2002 as a coordinated propaganda blitz to convince Americans they were on the verge of
being gassed by an Osama-Saddam Axis of Doom has now concluded with a farcical handover of
'sovereignty' in the dead of night. One can almost imagine American proconsul Paul Bremer handing
the keys to this rolling bomb over to former CIA pal and newly-minted Iraqi 'Prime Minister' Iyad
Allawi with a snicker and a shrug. Thanks for the laughs, Iyad, but my helicopter is waiting on the roof."
