I think there is too much concentration of
power in the Kremlin. Everybody has doubts about the full independence of the judiciary.
There are questions about the independence of the electronic media and there are, I think,
questions about the strength of the Duma." --Condi,

"While she's in the neighborhood of human rights,
and busy lambasting Putin for torture, and dubious interrogation tactics in Chechnya,
Rice might want to revisit Guantanamo Bay, clandestine holding cells, as well as take
a long, hard look at "extraordinary rendition." What would be really extraordinary is if the
secretary of state can explain how a country that claims to hold the moral high ground
has all but shredded the Magna Carta, and may well be remembered as much for Abu
Ghraib as the Statue of Liberty."

Excerpt: Retired Army Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, who commanded
U.S. forces in Iraq for the first year of the occupation,
blamed "incompetence" by Bush's national security
team for creating a "nightmare" that could last far into the future.
Sanchez, who led coalition forces from June 2003
to June 2004, used an Oct. 12 speech to a conference of Military
Reporters and Editors in Arlington, Virginia,
to castigate nearly everyone connected to the Iraq War, including the
U.S. news media, Congress, the State Department,
the White House and the Pentagon.
"There has been a glaring, unfortunate display
of incompetence in strategic leadership among our national leaders,"
Sanchez said. "They have unquestionably been
derelict in the performance of their duty. In my profession, these
types of leaders would be immediately relieved
Why does the press allow Bush to claim, "I
let the generals in the field decide," if they'll be fired if they speak the truth?
How can these generals remain silent while Bush pushes 3800 soldiers
into the meatgrinder?
How many more thousands will die while these generals remain silent?
Excerpt: Once-classified documents that were unveiled
in the insider-trading case of Mr. Nacchio, the former chief of
Qwest Communications International Inc., suggest
the U.S. government didn't offer lucrative contracts to the
company after Mr. Nacchio refused to cooperate
with what the documents call "improper government requests"
2001. The documents, submitted
as part of Mr. Nacchio's defense in the insider-trading case,
don't elaborate on the government requests. Mr.
Nacchio has said in the past he didn't comply when asked
by the NSA for access to the private phone records
of Qwest customers.
So, the bastards were tapping our phones just
because Bush wanted to? And even with tapping the phones, Atta snuck
up on Bush in September that year?
Too bad congress is afraid to hold Bush accountable.
I want to congratulate Al Gore for his well deserved
Nobel Peace Prize.
Maybe we will be able to solve the global warming
problem before it's too late
because of Al Gore's work.
Many people are trying to push Al Gore to run
for president but I think it's too late for that.
But when Hillary wins the nomination I think
that if she offered Al Gore his old job back as
vice president that he'd be a great VP again.
Many people still have Clinton/Gore bumper
stickers on their cars so instead of drafting
Gore for President, let's draft Gore for vice president.
"John Lewis is a titan of the civil rights
movement. Of course he can think for himself. But the Clintons still ruthelessly pressure those they can.
And an endorsement at this stage from a man of Lewis's stature is more than an endorsement of Clinton. It's
a racial body-blow to Obama. And it's not racist to recognize that. One of the more fascinating aspects of this
race is the reluctance of so many African-Americans to support the most plausible black candidate for president

Hillary puts on him.

Excerpt: The worst thing about Gore, from the conservative
point of view, is that he keeps being right.
In 1992, George Herbert Herbert Bush mocked him
as the "ozone man," but three years later
the scientists who discovered the threat to the
ozone layer won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
In 2002 he warned that if we invaded Iraq, "the
resulting chaos could easily pose a far greater
danger to the United States than we presently
face from Saddam." And so it has proved.
But Gore hatred is more than personal. When National
Review decided to name its anti-environmental
blog Planet Gore, it was trying to discredit
the message as well as the messenger. For the truth Gore has
been telling about how human activities are changing
the climate isn't just inconvenient.
For conservatives, it's deeply threatening.
Years from now, historians will wonder how a visionary
like Gore could
possibly lose an election the the stupidest and
most crooked president ever.
Excerpts: The details quicken the pulse and keep the crime

I'd prefer to know nothing about it at all. I grope in my own turmoil for

not of justice - of what value is justice in such a loss? - but of healing,
only that healing is a shrug, a systemic afterthought,
a blank stare from the "competing interests" in this case.

Excerpt: On February 7th, the Rove team, which had been
writing several e-mails screaming about Armed
Madhouse and "that British reporter," Greg Palast, were
gloating that no U.S. media had picked up my stories. And they had
a .pdf file attached. Of course, the reason my
book was subpoenaed is that it has to do with the US prosecutor firings.
The prosecutor firings were 100% about influencing
elections -- not about loyalty to Bush, which is what The New
York Times wrote. The administration team couldn't
tolerate appointees who wouldn't go along with crime. In the
book I present the evidence that Karl Rove directed
a guy named Tim Griffin to target suppressing the votes of
African American students, homeless men, and
soldiers. Nice guy. They actually challenged the votes and
successfully removed tens of thousands of legal
voters from the voter rolls, same as they did in 2000.
But instead of calling them felons, they said
that they had "suspect addresses."

Excerpt: Lt. Michael Murphy, 29, and three other SEALs
were 10,000 feet up in the Hindu Kush
searching for Ahmad Shah, leader of the Mountain
Tigers guerrilla group allied with the Taliban.
The reconnaissance team encountered two goatherds,

A fierce firefight ensued with more than 50 insurgents.
Shot in the gut, Murphy dashed out on a ledge
to get a clear signal to call for help.
While continuing to be fired upon, Murphy provided
his location and the size of the enemy force.
At one point, he was shot in the back, but he
completed the call and continued firing at the enemy.
If we had stayed in Afghanistan, that fight likely
would be over by now.
Excerpt: Show me a man wearing an American flag pin in
his lapel, and I'll show you an asshole. I'm sure there are
exceptions, but in general people need to remember
that lapels aren't for wearing pins to create the illusion

wearing ribbons to create the illusion that you're helping cure a disease.

his role in the war itself. - They were poorly trained. They got overwhelmed by circumstance. And we certainly
didn't have situational awareness on his watch. The surge is a direct result of having to make up for mistakes
early on.... As far as I'm concerned, he was part of that mistake by being a commander who did not express

Excerpt: In southern Iraq, where U.S. troops and the remnants
of the multinational coalition wage a low-intensity war
against militant factions themselves at war with
each other, soldiers say one of the enemy's weapons has blown
their confidence more than all the others. So
called EFPs, or Explosively Formed Penetrators, have become
the weapon du jour among the Shi'ite fighters.
The devices cap a tube or pipe full of explosives with a solid
copper disk that, due to the force and heat of
the blast, transforms itself into an armor-piercing slug. EFPs
can destroy Humvees and disable even the Abrams
tank. U.S. officials insist the weapons are made or at
least designed in Iran but have so far failed
to produce a direct link. And while EFPs are only a small fraction
of the bombs used by evildoers, they caused 23
of the 69 U.S. fatalities in the month of July.

She will be the first president married to a

Isn't that an odd way to write about our next president?
Do they ever mention that Pickles is married to a scumbag who faked

No, because sex is a much greater crime than killing 3800 soldiers.
Excerpt: When Al Gore encountered New York Times columnist
Nicholas D. Kristof at a recent conference
on climate change, he lamented the lack of public
urgency toward the looming catastrophe from global warming.
"I can't understand why there aren't rings of
young people blocking bulldozers and preventing them from
constructing coal-fired power plants," Gore told
Kristof, who was accompanied by his teenage son. [NYT, Aug. 16, 2007]
Yet, if Gore means what he says - that global
warming is such a threat to the future of mankind that young people
should throw their bodies in front of bulldozers
- then the obvious question to him is: "Why won't you submit to
the personal unpleasantness of another presidential
campaign so you can lead the fight to save the planet?"
