"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."

Bush's Rewriting of History
   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 presidential election.

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.

Decoding 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

Hi Bart,

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 met
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 his age!

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!

Alan T

Alan, I'll bet your jazz buddies know good tequila when they smoke it.

"They spoke the truth then and they're speaking politics now."  
    --Dubya, assuring his sheep that we're winning in Iraq, we have no dead soldiers,
       the insurgents are quieting down and the Democrats can't tell the truth   Link 


Subject: why Bush didn't plant WMDs

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.


Bush Risks 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.

Subject: vulgar Pigboy on DVD

Hey Bart,

Thank you for posting the ad for that "Beavis & Butt-head" DVD set on your page sometime ago.
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.
Take care,

Daniel Leal.

P.S.: I'm sending as an attachment a pic of the sunset in Kihei, Maui, which my wife and I took in late May/early June.
When you and I were both on the island, but didn't bump into each other.

 Daniel, thanks for that.

More Tortured 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 elaboration.

Al-Jaafari, like a good Bush Puppet, promised a full investigation and punishment for yada, yada, yada.

They seem to have a torture monkey on their backs.
They need to torture sombody - anybody - they can't help themselves.

Republicans - how long are you going to let Bush do this to you?

Burn in 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.
Polls show most Americans share my distrust of Bush..

"Oh, there goes my bad eye, again.
 It only twitches when I'm in real trouble.
 It's never twitched this bad before..."

Greatness 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.

"...the commander-in-chief during a time of war essentially lied to the American people.

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 
that's wrong with the Democratic party these days.  After the disaster that 8 years of BushCo will wind up 
being we don't need another corporatist giving more power to the already near-omnipotent corporations.

Claims about 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.

'I treated people who had their skin melted'
  Bush spreads 'God's gift of Freedom'  with phosphorus bombs


"They used these weird bombs that put up smoke like a mushroom cloud," he said. He had seen "pieces of these
bombs explode into large fires that continued to burn on the skin even after people dumped water on the burns".

As an unembedded journalist, I spent hours talking to residents forced out of the city. A doctor on the outskirts
of Fallujah described treating victims during the siege "who had their skin melted".

He asked to be referred to simply as Dr Ahmed because of fears of reprisals for speaking out. "The people and
bodies I have seen were definitely hit by fire weapons and had no other shrapnel wounds," he said.

"Torture does not work."
    - Molly Ivins, giving her opinion    Link

 I'm not pro-torture, but how can anybody say it doesn't work?
 That's as crazy a thing as I've ever heard.

 Is this a semantics deal?  Are people using "code words?"
 To me, saying "Torture doesn't work," is the same as saying, "Fire isn't hot,"
 and "Ice isn't cold," and "It doesn't hurt when metal pierces your skin."

 Regardless of one's standing on torture, how can anyone say it doesn't work?

 I love Molly, but I don't understand the words coming out of her mouth.  Perhaps Molly 
 is trying to demonstrate how liberal and un-Texas she is by re-labeling an opinion as a fact?

 Hell, if my sweater is itchy, I have to scratch it - that's torture for me.
 So how does someone tell flames-on-skin, "Nevermind, you're not here?"

 There's a diff between a "perfect world" and the one we live in.

Cindy's 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.)


Subject:  yesterday's filibuster essay

If the filibuster is dead, let's bury it now, while we are in the minority.
That way, if we win the Senate back the Thuglicans can't bitch if we don't let them
use the filibuster when they are in the minority.  The worst of all possible worlds is to
allow them to effectively, but secretly, kill the filibuster when they are in the majority,
because you KNOW that if they wind up in the minority they are going to filibuster
everything that comes along, if the filibuster isn't officially dead.
