Bush Family's Terrorism Test
by Robert Parry at
BOther information that directly linked Pinochet to the Letelier assassination
also began flowing into the CIA.
On Oct. 6, a CIA informant in Chile went to the CIA Station in Santiago
and relayed a story about Pinochet
denouncing Letelier before the murder.
The informant said the dictator had called Letelier’s
criticism of the government “unacceptable.” The source
“believes that the Chilean Government is directly involved in
Letelier’s death and feels that investigation into
the incident will so indicate,” the CIA field report said.
But apparently to protect these U.S. allies from
exposure as international terrorists – and to spare the Ford
administration political embarrassment during the 1976 presidential
campaign – Bush’s CIA dragged its heels
on turning over evidence that might have quickly broken the case.
Instead, Bush’s CIA leaked false stories
to the U.S. media, exonerating Pinochet’s regime of responsibility
for the Letelier-Moffitt murders.

along with a variety of other herbs and spices. The ancient chosen ones

A Lipstick President
by Hillary hating Maureen Dowd
Hillary's not playing the vocal peacenik this time - she's the cagey
hawk. She knows if she wants
to be the first woman president, she can't have love beads in her jewelry
She has defended her vote to authorize the president
to wage war, even though it was apparent
then that the administration was snookering the country. And she has
argued for more troops in Iraq,
knowing it sounds muscular but there's no support for it from the public
- or Rummy.
She figures the liberals will stay with her while
she scuttles to the center, even if they get angry
when she's not out front on stopping the war or preserving abortion
rights. No one knows how
she'll vote on John Roberts, so this could be her own Sister Souljah
moment - will she break
with the hard-line left on Judge Roberts?
What Hillary has going for her is exhaustion.
Exhaustion kicks in with any party in power for
eight years, let alone one that tricked the country into war. And at
some point, voters may be
too exhausted to resist Hillary's relentless ambition any longer.
Dowd would love another four years of the BFEE.
She'll do everything in herpower, including telling bald-faced lies,
to screw Hillary.
That's her mission, that's her goal.

Bush, Bumbling Feds
Only the Coast Guard looks good after Katrina
At his usual leisurely pace, George Bush has returned here to take
a look at Katrina's damage.
With dire warnings all over the news 24 hours before Hurricane Katrina
struck, Bush remained
on vacation until a day after the storm struck. Only after the levees
in New Orleans were breached,
did the president return from his Crawford
ranch to take up the reins of government.
Just as on 9-11 itself, the president preferred to wait until he achieved
what his administration
sometimes refers to as “situational awareness” before
taking any rash action, like sending a lot
of drinking water to the stricken Gulf Coast, for example.

you can't bomb it into peace."

"No one can say they didn't

serious questions are being asked about the lack of preparation. The

New Orleans: It's about us
by Molly Ivins
This is not "just politics" or blaming for political
advantage. This is about the real consequences
of what governments do and do not do about their responsibilities.
And about who winds up
paying the price for those policies.
It is a fact that the Clinton
administration set some tough policies on wetlands, and it is a fact
that the Bush administration repealed those policies -- ordering federal
agencies to stop
protecting as many as 20 million acres of wetlands.
In June, Bush took his little
ax and chopped $71.2 million from the budget of the New Orleans
Corps of Engineers, a 44 percent reduction. As was reported in New
Orleans CityBusiness at
the time, that meant "major hurricane and flood projects will
not be awarded to local engineering
firms. Also, a study to determine ways to protect the region from
a Category 5 hurricane has
been shelved for now."
The levees of New Orleans, two
of which are now broken and flooding the city, were also
victims of Iraq war spending. Walter Maestri, emergency management
chief for Jefferson Parish,
said on June 8, 2004, "It appears that the money has been moved
in the president's budget to
handle homeland security and the war in Iraq."

Waiting for a Leader
The NYW Times finds a flaw in their precious W?
Bush gave one of the worst speeches of his life yesterday, especially
given the level of national distress
and the need for words of consolation and wisdom. In what seems
to be a ritual in this administration,
the president appeared a day later than he was needed. He then read
an address of a quality more
appropriate for an Arbor Day celebration: a long laundry list of
pounds of ice, generators and blankets
delivered to the stricken Gulf Coast. He advised the public that
anybody who wanted to help should
send cash, grinned, and promised that everything would work out
in the end.
Nothing about the president's
demeanor yesterday - which seemed casual to the point of carelessness
- suggested that he understood the depth of the current crisis.

There are many. By just ignoring them,

seconds, that's a smoking gun. The fact that standard operating
procedures were not

Rachel Weisz, in 'The Constant Gardener'
Don't be put off by the title: The
Constant Gardener (* * * * out of four) is a masterwork of suspense,
romance and political intrigue. It is a taut and gripping thriller
that dazzles the eyes and engages the brain
in a way that few recent films have come close to approaching.
Told in a non-linear style that
requires close attention, the film is vastly rewarding to viewers
a smart and complex love story. That it offers passion, betrayal,
gorgeous cinematography, social
commentary, stellar performances and clever wit puts it in a special
category near perfection.

could make it a best-picture Oscar contender..
