1656 - Greed crimes

With Bush falling apart, hits are up.
Now's a great
time to advertise
"I did live in Alaska, summer of '74. And I
remember it just like it was then, a vast,
majestic land, so beautiful. This is a vast
and beautiful state -- the mountains, sea and sky
are a great reminder of America's boundless
frontiers and limitless potential."

with intent to distribute, but the press won't ask him about that so it's
like it never happened. Link
So why didn't Kerry mention that in the 2004 campaign?
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
For decades, the Bush family has been treated
like a kind of American royalty in which a petulant king or prince
can stamp a foot and insist that whatever the
evidence says the truth is otherwise. Their subjects are expected to
bow in acquiescence, while dissenters can expect
a good thrashing.
George H.W. Bush did this during the early Iran-Contra
scandal, insisting he was "not in the loop" despite extensive
evidence that his office was a hub for the secret
operations in both Central America and the Middle East.
Rep. Lee Hamilton and other bipartisan-seeking
Democrats gently let Bush off the hook in the congressional
Iran-Contra report, clearing him for the 1988
When Iran-Contra independent counsel Lawrence
Walsh finally broke through the Bush cover-up in 1992, Walsh was
pilloried across Washington as a crazy old man,
a Captain Ahab pursuing the White Whale. George Bush Sr. then
destroyed Walsh's investigation by pardoning
six Iran-Contra defendants in December 1992. [For details see Robert Parry's
Secrecy & Privilege.]
Now Bush's eldest son, George W. Bush, is turning
to this tried-and-true family tactic to extricate himself from
his own web of lies and distortions about the
Iraq War. In a Veterans Day speech on Nov. 11, Bush accused those
who question his alleged misuse of pre-war intelligence
of being the real guilty ones who have distorted the facts.
"It is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history
of how that war began," Bush scolded his critics.
"These baseless attacks send the wrong signal
to our troops and to an enemy that is questioning America's will."
If the White House can't rally the faithful -
and bully the doubters - Bush may soon face
the start of his presidency's end game.

Der Monkey's Denials
To avoid having to account for his administration's
misleading statements before the war with Iraq,
Bush has tried denial, saying he did not skew
the intelligence. He's tried to share the blame, claiming that
Congress had the same intelligence he had, as
well as President Bill Clinton. He's tried to pass the buck
and blame the C.I.A. Lately, he's gone on the
attack, accusing Democrats in Congress of aiding the terrorists.
Yesterday, Bush trotted out the same tedious deflection
on Iraq that he usually attempts when his back is
against the wall: he claims that questioning
his actions three years ago is a betrayal of the troops in battle today.
It all amounts to one energetic effort at avoidance.
But like the W.M.D. reports that started the
whole thing, the only problem is that none of it has been true.
Subject: spoke to National Guardsman
My wife and I were at Cecil's in West Orange,
New Jersey, Saturday night to hear pianist Onaje Allan Gumbs and his trio.
(Cecil's is the hottest jazz club in NJ, owned
by Cecil Brooks III - my sincere plug). We were sitting at the bar and
Kenneth, a black National Guardsman who just
got back from Iraq. Talk about the military hating Bush!
Kenneth had less use for the Chimp than for sand
in his boots. He talked for a long time about the futility of their mission
and how we we're sold a bill of goods by the
lying GOP. Kenneth was only home for a short time, since he was being
sent back again. And the guy is 50 friggin' years
old! How desperate is our military to put this guy on the firing line at
When Onaje Allan Gumbs heard that, he got on the
mic and launched into a blistering attack on Bush and the GOP,
both for this insane war and their gleeful negligence
in leaving thousands of African-Americans to their fate during Katrina.
Nobody hates Chimp more than the jazz community
in America. Keep em' flying!

Subject: why Bush didn't plant
Bart, you published:
> "The mystery is why Bush hasn't planted some
WMDs in Iraq."
The reason for this is that's Plame's covert anti-proliferation
task force intercepted at least two
attempts to smuggle chemical agents into into
the country that looked very suspicious for BushCo.
So on top of everything else, preventing the BFEE's
"planting the WMD" plan was certainly a
prime reason for blowing her cover, disabling
her task force, and preventing her from foiling
any other evil plots they might be hatching.
So there was more motive behind the outing than
simple revenge against her husband.
ValPlame's operation was a threat to them.
Dave, thanks, I didn't know that.
Alienating GOP Over Iraq War
The whole world now agrees with bartcop.com
Bush's efforts to paint Democrats as hypocrites
for criticizing the Iraq war after they once warned that Saddam
was a grave threat could backfire on Republicans.
Polls show marked declines in support for the war, notably
moderate female Republicans, and independents
voting blocs that the GOP needs to woo or keep in their camp.
As Bush castigates Democrats for changing their
minds on the war, he might wind up alienating Republicans, too.
Bush has been engaging in a rhetorical high-wire
act in its efforts to defend its use of prewar intelligence so much
that some have likened it to Clinton's "That
depends on what the definition of 'is' is."
Bush and his advisers have conceded that the administration
was wrong in its assessment of Saddam's WMDs.
So the debate centers on whether they misled
members of Congress and the American people.
"The fact is this was a truly major failure in
intelligence and analysis," said Anthony Cordesman, an Iraq expert and
former Pentagon intelligence official. "But that
does not mean that information was not manipulated or used to create
a case for war that was much stronger than the
assessments made before the conflict."
Well, maybe it depends on what the definition
of "manipulated" is.

Thank you for posting the ad for that "Beavis

As a big fan of that duo, I couldn't help but
click on it and order that item from Amazon.com right away.
I got the package yesterday and, after looking
through the episodes, decided to watch one called Right On,
which I hadn't seen before. To my total surprise
and astonishment, it featured a fat and obnoxious right-wing
TV show host called Gus Baker, who sounded and
looked exactly like the Vulgar Pigboy. Having seen that,
I decided to do a Google search for the terms
"Gus Baker", "Rush Limbaugh" and Beavis; and, not suprisingly,
my suspicions were confirmed. That fat dude REALLY
is a cartoon version of the Pigboy.
If you haven't seen that episode, it's highly
recommended and hillarious.

Detainees Found in Iraq
Iraq's prime minister said Tuesday that 173 Iraqi
detainees - malnourished and showing signs of
torture - were found at an Interior Ministry
basement lockup seized by U.S. forces in Baghdad.
The discovery appeared to validate Sunni complaints
of abuse by the Shiite-controlled ministry.
The revelation about the mostly Sunni Arab detainees
by PM al-Jaafari was deeply embarrassing to
the government as critics in the United States
and Britain question the U.S. strategy for building
democracy in a land wracked by insurgency, terrorism
and sectarian tension.
"I was informed that there were 173 detainees
held at an Interior Ministry prison and they appear to
be malnourished," al-Jaafari said of Sunday's
raid. "It seems they were subjected to some kind of torture."
One detainee had been crippled by polio and others
suffered "different wounds," the deputy interior
minister, Maj. Gen. Hussein Kamal, said without
Al-Jaafari, like a good Bush Puppet, promised
a full investigation and punishment for yada, yada, yada.

Bush bullies hiding bartcop.com
by entering bartcop.com at
hell, Mr. President
My first reaction when I read the transcript
of Bush's Veteran's Day speech was anger.
No, not anger. Rage. Blind rage.
How dare he, I thought. Not even the lowest, scum-sucking
son of a bitch in politics would stoop
to using a day to honor those who served to instead
promote his lies-based, illegal, immoral exercise
in mass murder called the invasion of Iraq.
Yes he would. Bush is a pathetic, pitiless scrap
of sub-human trash that lacks any shred of decency or morality.
So why wouldn't he desecrate the memories of
those who serve our nation?
I cannot be dispassionate when it comes to Bush.
He's a liar and a traitor to the oath he swore when
he became President of the country he now works
so hard to destroy.

Thrust Upon Her
Hillary may be running for re-election to the
United States Senate next year, but as she wrapped up
her three-day tour of Israel on Monday, it became
clear that many people here expect her to run for another office.
"Our next president!" a man cried on Monday morning
as Mrs. Clinton paid a visit to the Western Wall.
A few hours later Mrs. Clinton was given a vest
with the emblem of the Israeli Red Cross. "We do hope
that some day, it will be hanging on the walls
of the Oval Office," said Dr. Eilat Shinhar, a Red Shield official.
And presidential politics even popped up unexpectedly
during an emotional meeting Mrs. Clinton had with the
parents of Yochai Porat, a young medic Mrs. Clinton
met during a trip here in 2002, and who was killed a week later.
"We hope you come back like president," said
the man's father, Ya'akov Porat.
Mrs. Clinton smiled and replied, "You're going
to get me into trouble."
Some people try to attempt greatness,
some have greatness thrust upon them,
some have both.

Not everyone opposed to Hillary has a particular
personal dislike for her.
Some of us however are convinced that the DLC
and its fealty to the corporatocracy are the root of all

cage of lions
The Army is looking into claims by two former
Iraqi detainees that they were thrust into a cage
of lions in a Baghdad palace in 2003 as part
of a terrifying interrogation.
"They took me behind the cage, they were screaming
at me, scaring me and beating me a lot,"
Thahe Mohammed Sabbar said in an interview. "One
of the soldiers would open the door,
and two soldiers would push me in. The lions
came running toward me and they pulled me out
and shut the door. I completely lost consciousness."
"They threatened that if I did not confess they
would put me in the cage," said Khalid, adding that the
soldiers kept asking him where Saddam was. "I
laughed, I thought they were kidding me." But when he
laughed, he was beaten more and pushed into the
cage three times, pulling him out as the lions closed in.
ACLU lead counsel Lucas Guttentag said media reports
documented that American soldiers had access
to the lions. Saddam's son, Ootie kept
lions in his compound at the presidential palace, which was taken over
by U.S. troops during the war. He was killed
in a gun battle with American soldiers in July 2003 and his
body was dragged onto TV screens worldwide as
Bush masturbated to the images in the Oval Office.

As an unembedded journalist, I spent hours talking

Day in Court
by David Swanson
Cindy Sheehan has a court date today in D.C.,
and faces up to 6 months in jail for demonstrating without a permit,
as a result of the civil disobedience action
at the White House in September at which Cindy and nearly 400 other
activists protested the war. Some paid
a $75 fine. Others, including Cindy, are refusing to pay anything.
Some of those refusing to pay are required to
appear in federal court at 9:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday.
They'll be at the Federal Courthouse at 3rd and
Constitution Ave. NW, and a group of supporters will be there
to hold a vigil at 8:30 a.m.. Supporters
planning to be there include Congressman John Conyers.
Cindy has a second court date from a die-in in
front of the White House on the occasion of the 2,000th death of
a U.S. soldier in Iraq. (I was arrested
at that time, as were two dozen others, and have paid my fine.)
