"Apparently, the Republicans who dominate the

...many war critics asserted that Bush's
decision to take his case against Iraq to the UN
was a ploy designed only to justify a predetermined
course for invasion. In other words,
the critics felt that Bush and his allies were
not acting in good faith, but simply wanted
some political cover for an illegal war.
That, of course, was not the judgment of
editorialists at the Washington Post,
the New York Times or other major newspapers who
praised Bush for going to
the UN on the advice of supposed moderates such
as Powell and Blair.
Indeed, looking back to late 2002 and early
2003, it would be hard to find any
"reputable" commentary in the mainstream
press calling Bush's actions fraudulent,
which is what the British evidence reveals them

Since when did you start using the Pentagon

I don't, but I consider the Pentagon to be experts at war.
When they tell our soldiers, "If captured,
don't resist because torture works,"
I assume they're giving our boys their best advice.
Joe Conason on Bush's helpers in the press
Mooing in plaintive chorus, the Beltway
herd insists that the July 23, 2002, memo wasn't news
-- which would be true if the absence of news were
defined only by their refusal to report it.
They tell us the memo wasn't news because
everybody understood that George W. Bush had
decided to wage war many months before the United
States and its allies invaded Iraq. The memo
wasn't news because anyone who didn't comprehend
that reality back then has come to realize the
unhappy facts during the three ensuing years. The
memo wasn't news because Americans already
knew that the Bush administration was "fixing the
intelligence and facts around the policy," rather
than making policy that reflected the intelligence
and the facts about Iraq.
Only a very special brand of arrogance would
permit any employee of the New York Times, which
brought us the mythmaking of Judith Miller, to
insist that new documentary evidence of "intelligence fixing"
about Saddam's arsenal is no longer news. The same
goes for the Washington Post, which featured phony
administration claims about Iraq's weapons on Page
1 while burying the skeptical stories that proved correct.
The NYWTimes and the WaHoPo have changed their mission statements
to protect Bush,
yet we still have to hear the whining from the right about "those

Subject: why protect sources
As a journalist myself, I can tell you the
easy answer people will give for this --
If you burn the liars, the truthtellers will be
afraid to talk to you as well.
And particularly where the truthtellers are supplying
you with extremely sensitive
information that could cost them a great deal should
their identity be known,
you can imagine them being overly paranoid to the
point where it wouldn't be
enough to tell them, "No, no. I only burn people
who lie to me."
No matter what you say, they'll think you
burn people when it becomes
necessary to protect yourself. And so, your American
version of the
Downing Street memo story goes out the window...
Dan, there's a difference between lying and making a mistake.
When your source lies to make you look stupid (Dan Rather) or dead
why should they be protected from the consequences of their bad intentions?
More Trouble for Bush
When Poodle's chief foreign policy adviser
dined with Sleazy Rice six months after Sept. 11,
she didn't want to discuss al-Qaida. She wanted
to talk about "regime change" in Iraq,
setting the stage for the U.S.-led invasion more
than a year later.
Bush wanted his Poodle to heel, but Brits
worried that Bush was rushing to war, according to
a series of leaked secret Downing Street memos
that have renewed questions and debate
about Bush's hardon for Saddam.
"U.S. scrambling to establish a link between Iraq
and al-Qaida is so far frankly unconvincing,"
says the memo. "For Iraq, `regime change' sounds
like a grudge between Bush and Saddam."
Slowly, the American whore press has been
forced to do their jobs - and they hate it.
And this bad news is hitting the BFEE after a long
string of defeats.
There are too many hundreds of billions
of dollars left yet unstolen, so there's too much at stake
for them to lose, so they'll fight like hell to
steal those remaining hundreds of billions of dollars.
...but they are wounded and wounded oil
men with money left yet unstolen is a very dangerous thing.

Thank you Senator Durbin for finally standing
up to tell the truth about America's torture chambers!
It's about time someone is telling the truth
the way it really is. When America acts like the Nazis,
the Communists, and like power crazed third word
dictators then it is a act of patriotism to stand up
and call it like it is. At what point did telling
the truth become a bad thing? At what point does telling
the truth put our troops at risk?
What puts Americans at risk is what the
truth is. We really do torture people to death.
It really is happening. We are not as bad as the
Nazis, but we are heading in that direction.

The Red Planet is about to be spectacular!
This month and next, Earth is catching up with
Mars in an encounter that will culminate
in the closest approach between the two planets
in recorded history. The next time Mars
may come this close is in 2287. Due to the way
Jupiter's gravity tugs on Mars and perturbs
its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that
Mars has not come this close to Earth in the
last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as 60,000
years before it happens again.
The encounter will culminate on August 27th when
Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles
of Earth and will be (next to the moon) the brightest
object in the night sky.
Mars will look as large as the full moon to
the naked eye.
Mars will be easy to spot. At the beginning of
August it will rise in the east
at 10p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m.
By the end of August when the two planets are
closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach
its highest point in the sky at 12:30a.m. That's
pretty convenient to see something that no
human being has seen in recorded history. So, mark
your calendar at the beginning of August
to see Mars grow progressively brighter and brighter
throughout the month.

Boren install a gay network at CIA?
Is the military-homosexual complex for real?
I would like to open up consideration of the
question of whether David Boren, using the influence
he gained as the patron and mentor of George Tenet,
was able to install a homosexual network in the CIA.
First of all, I am 100% sure that Boren is homosexual.
This has been known at the gossip level around
Oklahoma for more than three decades.
(I can verify those rumors have been around for
Boren has made a lifelong practice of setting
up young men with government jobs, if they are sexually
appealing to him and if they are gay or if he thinks
they might be gay.
Just the fact that Boren set Tenet up on his career
path, and that the two men have remained close friends
since the 80s, makes me suspect that Tenet is queer.
Note: We usually wouldn't run a story
like this, because a person's sex life is nobody's business, but this
Gannon/Guckert with Bush stuff had to involve the
Secret Service, plus the crazy Skull & Bones rumors,
topped with the fact that a Repub being gay is
suicide stuff, wheras Dems don't really care.
That means a Repug can be blackmailed and that
makes it possibly national security stuff.
