There should have been no doubt what would
happen to anyone who questioned Bush's
case for war. The dissenters would be baited, ridiculed,
marginalized, and drowned out
by accusations of disloyalty as well as epithets
about "Saddam sympathizers."
Which is, of course, what happened. War
critics were treated like fringe nut cases, while
nearly every major Washington pundit fell for Bush's
deceptions about Saddam's WMDs.
Just look at the editorial pages on Feb. 6, 2003,
the day after Powell's speech to the UN.
Now, amid the rising death toll in Iraq,
a hopeful new line from some pundits is that the nation
is on the cusp of a serious debate about the war's
future - as Bush finally levels with the
American people, regains their trust and enlists
them in the sacrifices ahead.

Asked whether testifying at hearings and
organizing PACs are a signs that bloggers are

Criticized for Linking 9/11 and Iraq
Lies, lies and more lies from the Giggling Murderer

again raising the Sept. 11 attacks as a justification
for the protracted fight in Iraq after the president
proclaimed anew that he plans to keep
U.S. forces there as long as necessary to ensure
Urging patience on an American public showing

Dean hater Nancy Pelosi accused Bush of
demonstrating a willingness "exploit the sacred
ground of 9/11, knowing that there is no connection
between 9/11 and the war in Iraq."
"The president's numerous references to
September 11 did not provide a way forward in Iraq,"
said Harry Reid. "They only served to remind us
that Osama is still on the loose and al-Qaida
remains capable of doing this nation great harm
nearly four years after it attacked America."

hoping a backdrop of U.S. troops and a reminder
of Iraq's revived sovereignty would help him reclaim
control of an issue that has eroded his popularity.
In an evening address at an Army base that
has 9,300 troops in Iraq, Bush was acknowledging
the toll of the 27-month-old war. At the same time,
he aimed to persuade skeptical Americans
that his strategy for victory needed only time ÷ not
any changes ÷ to be successful.
If King George had lost Barbara or Jenna
in his bloody oil snatch, we might believe him.
But how dare he tell the families of the dead "It

As the founder of the Church

the Supreme Court to be a victory for religious freedom.

Ask Karl Rove for an apology? Not me. Apologies
are appropriate for foolish remarks
made in the heat of argument. Rove read from a
script. The White House handed out copies.
Besides, what would an apology from that flabby
little apparatchik be worth? He's the human
equivalent of a fear-biting dog: His Master's
Voice. "Conservatives," Rove said, "saw the
savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for
war. Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11
attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer
therapy and understanding for our attackers.
In the wake of 9/11, conservatives believed it
was time to unleash the might and power of the
United States military against the Taliban. In
the wake of 9/11, liberals believed it was time to
submit a petition. I am not joking." No,
he was fabricating.

tequila as medicine
A friend of mine who's something of a tequila
connoisseur recommends a fine (and expensive)
tequila called Chinaco Anejo. I doubt
if he's ever put it to use for medicinal purposes, but he
insists that the typical tequila found in most
liquor stores is junk. He enjoys his Chinaco in very
small servings, like a rare cognac. Which

Do you think I don't know that?
Here's what seems clear to me: The August
6th memo about "Bin Laden determined to
attack the U.S." was not ignored. The attack was
allowed to happen. Investigators that
got too close were blocked or misled. When the
event went down, safeguards were in
place to allow it to be not just successful but
far more devastating than it should have
been (such as the very real possibility that the
buildings were rigged to be demolished).

Am I the only fella on the Internet who disrepects his readers
by asking a question?
If you're done being snippy, allow me to explain.
There was a fella named John O'Neill, I think, who had
some dirt, I think, on the BFEE.
He was in charge of security at the WTC (it may have been his first day
on the job) and it
seemed possible (sorry if I'm offending someone again) that he could have
been a target that
would help the BFEE kill a dozen birds with two planes. I believe
O'Neill died on 9-11.
More broadly, if we had a list of what and who was lost that day
it might tell us why the WTC was chosen if it was an inside job.
Bart, you wrote:
> Y'know, the WTC *_did_* survive the impact.
> Did they study the effects of a plane freshly-loaded
with jet fuel?"
Of course they did. Jesus do
a little research before you go off and make an ass of yourself,
which seems to be happening more often lately. Too
much Chinaco, perhaps?
Bob, no reason to be an asshole, is there?
The buildings were designed to withstand,
without subsequently collapsing,
the impact of a fully fueled and loaded 707.
The fuel capacity and load capacity are virtually
identical to the 767.
First, that wasn't the sentence I responded
to. Words mean things, y'know?
You don't get to change the sentence and then ask
why I answered like I did.
Second, what makes you think I have time
to research every goddamn subject that comes up?
Third, when you come in here acting like
a prick, don't expect me to apologize.
I'm not Dick Dirbin.
By the way, the central core steel beams,
anchored in bedrock, were some 4 feet thick, so how did
they break away from the bedrock? Just one
of many questions regarding the near freefall collapse
of the towers. Another quick one, where did
the energy come from to pulverize the concrete and
cement in the floors, etc. Hint: the
jet fuel just didn't have enough enery to do the job.
