Al-Qaeda's 'Simon Says'
 by Robert Parry

One Republican pro-Iraq War argument is that Americans must listen to al-Qaeda's calls for
driving U.S. forces out of Iraq and thus recommit to keep U.S. troops there. But there is a
danger of playing into al-Qaeda's hands through a kind of a reverse "Simon Says," telling
Americans what to do when al-Qaeda really wants the opposite.

Monkey quotes Osama to instill fear


Quoting repeatedly from former partner Osama, Bush said that pulling U.S. troops out of Iraq would
fulfill the terrorist leader's wishes and propel him into a more powerful global threat in the mold of Adolf Hitler.

Actually, the opposite is true.
Occupying Arab lands fuels the terrorist's recruiting drive.

With two months until an election that could hold Bush accountable for his crimes, Bush laid out
Osama's vision in detail, including new revelations from possibly fabricated documents. 
Voters united behind Der Mopnkey after 9-11, and his speech was designed to convince 
Americans that the threat of more terror attacks is just one Democratic victory away.

"That is why we must not, and we will not, give the enemy victory in Iraq by deserting the unmetered
oil fields that are making me and my crime family richer than any gang on Earth," Bush said.

Taliban retaking Afghanistan


The Taliban have regained control over the southern half of Afghanistan and their frontline
is advancing daily, a group closely monitoring the Afghan situation said in a report Tuesday.
The report comes as the fifth anniversary of  "My Pet Goat" approaches.

"The Taliban frontline now cuts halfway through the country, encompassing all of the southern
provinces," the Senlis Council report says. The report says also that "a humanitarian crisis of
starvation and poverty has gripped the south of the country." The report blames "the U.S. and
UK-led failed counter-narcotics and military policies" for this situation.

Everybody was behind Bush invading Afghamistan because they sheltered Osama.
But Bush got greedy and decided he wanted to steal Iraq's oil instead of getting Osama
so now we're losing both wars.

Oh well, Bush's oil buddies got their tens of billions of profit.

I guess that's the important thing...

Subject: peace symbol on soldier's helmet


I wanted to write to see if you or any of your dozens of readers noticed something on I saw on the
first edition of Katie's news show.  There was a report on Afghanistan (and how we're losing to the
Taliban there), when there was a shot of GIs, and one of them had a big black patch on his helmet.
(He was on the left side of the screen.)  It was of a peace symbol, and I could read the words
"American" and "chicken."  Did anyone else see it?  Even rewinding on the dvr and watching it
several times, I couldn't read it clearly.

Surely the guys in the miliary are not dissing those of us who are fighting for peace and trying to
bring them home alive?  Are they allowed to have something like that on their uniforms (doesn't seem
regulation to me, even if they wanted to SUPPORT peace)?

I always flashback to my dad's angry response whenever I wore a peace symbol in the 70s
(he was a B52 pilot with 3 tours of Viet Nam; I grew up on military bases, so the war and death was,
unfortunately, the norm):  the peace symbol is chicken tracks.
So that's what I figured I was seeing on that soldier's helmet.

Looking forward to any other discussion of this.

Your huge fan,

Sofie, you're not going to like it:
It was a peace sign with the words, "Footprint of the American Chicken."

He also had a backwards flag

...whatever that means.

Apparently, the idiot wants to die in Afghanistan.
Apparently, he's proud of Bush's decision to capture Iraq's oil rather than Osama. 
If he'd rather be at war with his platoon than home with his wife and kids - I give up.

Most Buried Story: 
Halliburton's unmetered oil pumping


The #1 buried story is the fact that Halliburton has been pumping the oil in Iraq since 2003, 
and it hasn't been metered. This was revealed by the Inspector General's report on the missing 
$9 billion, and highlighted by Galloway's awesome testimony before the Senate in May, 2005

Subject: NSA


Shouldn't we be able to spy on people who are, as you say,
ordinary Americans, if they are phoning terrorists?

 Der Carson

Sure, did anybody say we shouldn't spy on Americans talking to terrorists?
The problem is - Bush wants to spy without a record of who he spied on.
That's the only difference.

We always said he should do it legally, but he doesn't want a record of who
he's spying on and that tells us he's spying on people without a good reason.

That FISA court approves 99.99% of all requests - unless it's Hillary.
Then the judge says no and Der Monkey throws a temper tantrum.
You see - he's never been told no before.

Free for all in NY
 my good friend Jeff Cohen needs straightening out

Cohen doesn't like Her, so the spinning starts.
In his "Hiding" attack, he spends the first seven paragraphs bemoaning the fact
that She's so far ahead of whoever her challengers might be, the Democrat can't
raise any money against her and the Republicans refuse to fund a serious candidate
in a losing race.  So - we hate her for being a winner?

And despite a New York Times editorial this week chiding Hillary Clinton to explain her Iraq
position in debate, don't count on her appearing this Sunday at a public forum in New York City
titled "How To Get Out of Iraq."

She's been invited to participate, as have all New York senate candidates.

 ha ha
There are only two, Jeff, and Schumer's not up for re-election..
Are you intentionally misleading the reader into thinkinking "everybody" will be there but Her?

So far Sen. Clinton hasn't responded to the invitation, while Tasini has confirmed that he'll be there.
The forum features Scott Ritter, Ray McGovern, and myself.

What could she gain by showing up to a public fistfight so Ritter, McGovern, Cohen and Tasini
can pounce on her 4-to-1 and get a photo-op and a nasty headlines in the Daily Whore?

The NY Daily Whore would take 300 pictures of her and print the very worst one.

Ritter and McGovern are two experts whose assessments of the Iraq situation have been remarkably
accurate and astute -- unlike the "experts" Sen. Clinton relied on when she voted to authorize the war
and to support the ongoing occupation.

Cheap shot and it assumes "facts" not in evidence.
If he's going to mock Her "experts" he should name one.
The only one we know for sure is a certain former president who *I* think
knows more about world politics than Jeff Cohen could learn in 100 years.

If you are a New York voter, why not call Sen. Clinton's office at 212.688.6262 and politely
encourage her to show up at this Sunday's event? It takes place at Judson Church starting at 7:00 PM.
(For more info, visit

Question: Is Bush going to bring the troops home if She calls for it?
Are other Democrats going to follow her lead?  Like they followed Murtha?
If Hillary turned into Code Pink-Cindy Sheehan-Hanoi Hillary overnight
- what would change, besides the ad rates on FOX Whore News?

Ain't nothing wrong with being Code Pink or Cindy Sheehan, besides the
scare factor that a candidate for president doesn't need in a tight race.

Does Jeff Cohen (He's not an idiot) really believe that Jonathan Tasini would do a
better job as NY senator?  Or that he might have a shot to make Washington BFEE-free in '08?

Of course he doesn't - which means his motives are something other than sending the strongest
of these two Democrats back to the battle in DC.   So - what could Jeff Cohen's real motives be?
Can't rule it in, can't rule it out, but there's LOTS of money to be made by attacking the Clintons.

Jeff, you've done more good than harm - and you're still my good friend - but explain yourself!
You're betting Jonathan Tasini can beat Hillary?

Are you serious?
No, you're not - so what's the real reason?

Subject: "What's next? You going to fire Randi, too?"

I wouldn't be surprised...she got back from vacation today and was HIGHLY PISSED.
She only found out about it on Monday.

It's all corporate crap, and $$ trying to kill our good voices.
I'm highly pissed, too.

Randi spent a lot of her show today encouraging folks to write in, and expressing exactly
the frustration a lot of us are feeling.  And good on her.  If AAR dumps her, too, at least I
won't have to wade through all those lame ads.  Who GIVES a fuck about time shares?


I thought it was very cool for Randi to stick up for Mike.
Maybe the smarter move would've been to keep her head down and please the Masters.
But then again, if they fire Randi for having principles and Franken runs for the senate - who's left?

Bush: No sense of decency?
  Keith Olbermann is down on Fascist liars

It is to the President's deep personal regret - that he has followed Rummy down the path of
trying to tie those loyal Americans who disagree with his policies - or even question their
effectiveness or execution - to the Nazis of the past, and the al Qaeda of the present.

Today - without ever actually saying so - Bush quoted a purported Bin Laden letter that spoke
of launching, "a media campaign to create a wedge between the American people and their government."

Make no mistake here - the intent of that is to get us to confuse the psychotic scheming of Osama
with that familiar bogeyman of the right, the "media."

Bush and Cheney have often attacked freedom of speech and freedom of the press.  Bush is
accomplishing in part what Osama Bin Laden and others seek - a fearful American populace,
easily manipulated, and willing to throw away any measure of restraint, any loyalty to our own
ideals and freedoms, for the comforting illusion of safety.

And it becomes necessary to ask:  "Have you no sense of decency, sir?"

Subject: homosexuality

I really hate it when you take what I wrote out of context.
It happens a lot to those of us that have the gall to challenge you on something.
Your posted reply to my email did that in spades.

I asked you four questions.

Of course none of the gay people I know have suggested that it was a matter of choice.
I never said that homosexuality was a matter of "choice."
In fact, I explicitly said it is a lot more complicated than either "choice" or "biology."

I thought you were taking science out of the equation.
That's why I asked the questions, to clarify your unclear-to-my-eyes stance.

Just like the Religious Right Nuts that claim that homosexuality is nothing but choice,
you've taken the opposing and equally ludicrous claim that it is nothing but biology.

You're upset and not thinking straight.
Medical science is NOT the "equally ludicrous claim" that ignorant bigotry is.

None of the studies have suggested any such thing. 
The clearest of them have merely indicated that there may be a biological tendency in certain populations. 
What happens to an individual throughout their formative years often affects that "tendency."
It's still not a choice, but it's also not biologically absolute.

I used to like writing to you and expressing my own observations, opinions, ideas.
But lately, it seems you don't ever bother to address a post except to twist it and demean the poster.
Too bad.

Cruella wins FL primary


Katherine Harris (R-Slut) will lose to Sen. Bill Nelson in the general election this November,
after she defeated three other GOP candidates in Tuesday's Senate primary. But her very modest
(Modest? Katherine Harris?) vote share in a primary in which she was the only known candidate
suggests that her troubled campaign - plagued by controversies and political missteps - has taken
a toll on Cruella, who has trailed Nelson by 37 percentage points in public opinion polls on the contest.

Subject: Bush must be stopped

Bush today admitted today that the United States used secret prisons run by the CIA
to torture prisoners, and Bush said that he was going to keep on doing it. Although Bush
says the the United States does not torture, he also has his own definition of torture and
claims that the Geneva conventions are vague.

Torturing people is just plain wrong. It's something that civilized people do not do.
Bush is doing more harm than good and he has to be stopped to prevent further damage.
He threatens the security of the civilized world. Americans are good people and we ask
that the world not judge us by our insane leader. He is a danger and he must be stopped.

ABC to air "Blame Clinton 9-11" comedy


Just bubbling up from the blogs into the mainstream press is debate over 
"The Path to 911," the horseshit movie ABC airs on Sept 10-11.
Liberals have charged that it blames Clinton for Bush's 9/11 failures.

Meanwhile, Richard Clarke and Sandy Berger say the movie is fiction. 
ABC and Whitewash co-chair Thomas Kean have said it is not literal truth.

But only right-wingers have seen the film - what are they hiding?

Al Franken and David Brock say there's a scene in the movie where we had Osama's
house surrounded (Osama's house?) but Clinton refused to allow his capture.

Problem is - that never happened - nothing even close to that happened. 
But the stupid Americans (about half) still think Saddam caused 9-11
so ABC-Disney continues to feed misinformation to the ignorant.

Too bad the Democrats are afraid to challenge the lies the way the truth was
challenged and CBS was forced  to take off that puffball movie about Reagan.

It the recurring theme.
The GOP attacks and the Democrats cower in the corner.

But for the murder of our husbands on 9/11, we would not have gone to Washington to fight

and ended at the voting booth, like most citizens. But for the initial failure of our leaders and 
elected officials to create an independent 9/11 Commission to investigate the terrorist attacks, 
we would not have not been forced to publicly fight for it.

Zogby Poll


Do you agree or disagree that there was a connection
between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 terror attacks?

Republicans  65%
Democrats    32%

Even though Bush says there was no connection, 2/3 of the GOP calls him a liar?

Do you agree that Bush's War in Iraq has been worth the loss of American lives?

Republicans  58% agree
Democrats    32% agree

So, basically, 1/3 of Democrats are stupid and 2/3 of Republicans are.

Amerikkka's Torture Monkey on Wednesday acknowledged secret CIA prisons around the world
and said 14 high-value terrorism suspects have been transferred to Guantanamo Bay for torture.

Bush blamed these unnamed, unseen, uncharged "suspects" for every crime under the sun.
When asked how he could justify their torture under the Constitution, Bush said, "What's that?"

 Iraq pumped 3.5M barrels daily before Bush invaded
 and then they got their 2003 Halliburton upgrade

Bush's oil gouge, which is going to $100a barrel

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

stealing  $400,000,000 every day.

and it continues every day while soldiers die.

Bush gets Poodle canned


Bush's Poodle is fighting to keep his job with 15 Labour lawmakers demanding he step down. 
They included eight junior members who resigned to protest his refusal to do so.  Blair warned 
the rebels that infighting would jeopardize the governing Labour Party's effort to hold onto power.

Pressure for Blair to leave has intensified in recent weeks, fueled by widespread anger at Poodle's
rolling over like a bitch every time his Master, Der Monkey, gives him a command.

But don't worry about Der Monkey's Poodle.

He's got a job lined up at The Carlyle Group as payback for giving Bush cover
for his invasions, his tortures, his rapes, his mega-oil thefts and his racist murders.

Clinton officials protest ABC's fake 9/11 series


ABC is about to broadcast a "terribly wrong" miniseries about 9-11 that blames Clinton, 
former Clinton administration officials said in letters demanding that ABC correct it or not air it.

Madeleine Albright, Sandy Berger, Bruce Lindsey and others wrote in the past week to 
Robert Iger, CEO of ABC's parent Disney Co to express concern over "The Path to 9/11."

"ABC/Disney acknowledges this show in direct contradiction of the 9-11 Whitewash report
and the facts, and it is despicable that ABC/Disney would insist on airing a fictional version 
of what is a serious and emotional event for our country," a Clinton spokesman said Thursday. 
"No reputable news organization should dramatize 9-11 for a profit at the expense of the truth.""

Well it's not a reputable news organization - it's Whore ABC.
