"The policies of Iran constitute perhaps the single greatest challenge 
   for American security interests in the Middle East." 
     -- Condi, lying under oath, a day before announcing unilateral sanctions against Iran,  Link

"Unilateral sanctions rarely ever work. I just don't think the unilateral approach
  and giving war speeches helps the situation. It will just drive the Iranians closer
  together. It also escalates the danger of a military confrontation." 
     -- Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., on Iran, Link

"Why worsen the situation and bring it to a dead end by threatening sanctions or military action?" 
    -- Vladimir Putin, inviting trouble because high oil prices makes him more powerful    Link

 When you have Putin and Bush getting richer from high oil prices, 
 expect oil prices to continue to rise.

Blackwater given Immunity
 Now they can freely confess to everything


Potential prosecution of Blackwater guards allegedly involved in the shooting deaths of 17 Iraqi civilians 
may have been compromised because the guards received immunity for statements they made to State 
Department officials investigating the incident, federal law enforcement officials said yesterday.

FBI agents called in to take over the State Department's investigation two weeks after the Sept. 16 shootings 
cannot use any information gleaned during questioning of the guards by the department's Bureau of Diplomatic
Security, which is charged with supervising security contractors.

Some of the Blackwater guards have subsequently refused to be interviewed by the FBI, citing promises 
of immunity from State, one law enforcement official said. The restrictions on the FBI's use of their initial 
statements do not preclude prosecution by the Justice Department using other evidence, the official said, 
but "they make things a lot more complicated and difficult."

Blackwater immunity draws criticism
 But it's the toothless Dems, so Bush isn't worried


Democrats criticized the Bush bastards Tuesday for giving immunity to Blackwater USA bodyguards, 
calling the move a failure to hold the security contractors responsible for the shooting deaths of 17 Iraqi civilians.

The State Department, whose investigators initially promised to shield the bodyguards' statements in the 
criminal inquiry of the Sept. 16 shootings, maintained that any lawbreakers "must be held to account" 
as a result of the inquiry that has since been taken over by the Justice Department and FBI.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, (D-Rubberstamp) called the immunity deal an example 
of "the amnesty administration" and threatened to write "a hot letter," to scare Bush.

The offer for limited immunity, first reported Monday by The Whore AP, has delayed the government's 
criminal inquiry of the shootings that enraged the Iraqi government, and threatens to derail prosecution 
as investigators seek other evidence from the crime scene now six weeks cold.

"Under Bush, accountability goes by the boards," said Leahy. "That goes equally for misconduct and for 
incompetence. If you get caught, they give you immunity. If you get convicted, they commute your sentence."

The High Cost of Torture


Six years after Bush embraced torture for suspects, and two years after it reportedly dropped 
the most extreme of those techniques, the taint of torture clings to American counterterrorism efforts.

The administration has a standard answer to queries about its interrogation practices: 1) We do not torture, 
and 2) we will not say what we do, for fear of tipping off future prisoners. In effect, officials want Al Qaeda 
to believe that the United States does torture, while convincing the rest of the world that it does not.

Bush does not acknowledge scaling back torture, perhaps to avoid implying that earlier methods were immoral 
or illegal.  Bush has repeatedly defended his record of torture, saying torture has produced invaluable information 
on Al Qaeda. But the administration's strategy has exacted an extraordinary political cost.

Can you imagine the sigh of relief from the rest of the world when we get our new president?

Subject: Hillary and War

Hi Bart,

C. Davie asked, "While we are asking WHY some Senator did not procedurally 'block' 
the 2002 Iran war authorization resolution, why not tell us why Hillary did not do so?" and you replied, 

"Because she's going to be president and they'd scream "soft on terror" if she voted against it. 
  No other Democrat can say that."

Are you saying that it's perfectly OK for Hillary, 
because "she's going to be president" to sacrifice principle for political advantage? 

If you're saying that, then you're essentially agreeing with those who've been saying all along that Hillary 
is just another calculating, amoral politician like Bush -- smarter, but conceivably more dangerous.

It's important to America and the world that we get rid of our crazies
so I don't mind if she voted in such a way so as not to be labeled "soft on terrorism."

I've never heard anyone I respect say Hillary was "just like" Bush.
And as far as dangerous, you would risk Giuliani's finger on the button?

Our $600M Bunker in Baghdad


We've seen the construction of an extravagant new fortress into which a thousand American officials 
and their many camp followers are fleeing. The compound, which will be completed by late fall, is the 
largest and most expensive embassy in the world, a walled expanse the size of Vatican City, containing 
21 reinforced buildings on a 104-acre site along the Tigris River, enclosed within an extension of the 
Green Zone which stretches toward the airport road. The new embassy cost $600 million to build, 
and is expected to cost another $1.2 billion a year to run - a high price even by the profligate standards 
of the war in Iraq. The design is the work of an architectural firm in Kansas City named Berger Devine 
Yaeger, which angered the State Department last May by posting its plans and drawings on the Internet.

Pentagon Caught in $1.4B Lie


The Pentagon has asked Congress for $1.4 billion in emergency spending to combat a growing threat 
of sniper attacks in Iraq based on an overstated assessment of the extent of the attacks, its own records show.

In last week's spending request, the Pentagon said sniper attacks have quadrupled in the past year and, 
if unchecked, the attacks could eclipse roadside bombs as the top killer of U.S. troops. However, the rate of 
sniper attacks has dropped slightly in 2007 and fallen dramatically in the past four months, according to 
military records given to USA Whore TODAY.

Pentagon officials acknowledged the mistake Monday after they were caught.

"The term quadrupled will be removed from the justification because it is simply incorrect," said Dave Patterson, 
deputy undersecretary of Defense.

In 2006, there were 386 sniper attacks on coalition forces. 
Through Oct. 26 of this year, there were 269 sniper attacks, the figures show.

So Bush & Cheney are stealing hundreds of millions each day in oil. 
Halliburton charges $30 for cheeseburgers with worms and gangrene. 
Bechtel is constructing buildings out of human waste while 
Blackwater gets immunity for shooting anything that moves. 

Meanwhile, the Pentagon is raping the Treasury.

Hillary looking better to me
 by Mystery Writer


She may be the most disciplined politician I have ever seen. She's a machine, always
on message, relentlessly perfect on everything -- appearance, message, and policy.

She won't make a mistake. She will not implode. She's too good to make the obvious mistake,
and even if she erred (she's human), her campaign wouldn't waste any time setting things straight.

The polls don't lie -- the more people see of Hillary, the more they like her.
What I'm seeing is lots of people take a look at HIllary, then say, "Why was it that I hated her again?"
The right-wing press told everyone for so long that they hated Clinton, that people simply assumed they did.
When they see her, they're no longer so sure.

Seeing the sheer effectiveness of her campaign machine -- it truly is a well-oiled machine
-- I feel pretty confident that she'd win the White House and win it BIG.

Guess who wrote this?

Subject: White People DO live in flood zones

Half my country (17 million residents) including its most heavily populated cities, is below sea level. 
The difference between Bush and my government is that my government spends the money to maintain the dikes. 
Bush pulled 40 percent of already assigned funding for New Orleans levees in order to give that big tax cut.

Also in cases where dikes break, my government is known to respond immediately with help, 
and so was the American government before Bush took it over.

Subject: Hillary

Dear Bart,

I have to disagree about Clinton's chances and the kind of President she would be.
She is smart, all right, and tough. But I want a Democrat in the White House in 2009.

ha ha
Ralph, is that you again?

I am wondering if all the buzz the right wing candidates are giving her,
the pretended fear, isn't just a masking a preference.

Trust me, they know they're going to lose.
That's why so many of them are retiring now.

She is getting huge dollars from all the big money sources that corrupted the Republican party.
Big insurance and big drugs and big pretty much everything else. The fact that corporations feel safe,
causes me to distrust her.

You'd rather have a candidate that has trouble raising money?  Not me.
BIG money knows a winner when it sees one - that's what is attracting the cash.

It is unfortunate that lobbyist money and its privately controlled partners plays a nearly exclusive role
in determining the chances that a candidate has in national elections. When there is a free forum, such
as a cable televised debate, the same media corporations that also sell advertising control the debate.
They control the questions, to whom they are directed, and the time to answer. They determine how
much time each candidate has to speak, and whether they will be given an opportunity to answer a
follow up question.

Actually, you're wrong about that.
The candidates get to determine the rules of the debate.
If they don't like the rules they can skip the debate.

I think Bill Clinton wasn't bad, but he wasn't a God either. You want to see Swift Boating,
Hillary will be buried in so many lies and half truths that have been accumulated that she
will have to fight pretty hard to overcome them.

Nah, she'll nip that crap in the bud.
Were you around in '92 and '96 when they wrote the blueprints?

Maybe she can. I would rather not take the chance if there is any chance in Hell that Rudy could win.
Yours truly,

You know what Hillary's going to do to Rudy?

"There's never been a better time. Both mainstream parties are looking likely to nominate 
deeply flawed candidates. If the race comes down to Hillary and Giuliani, the Green Party 
could nominate Big Bird and win 28% of the vote. And a third party is definitely needed, 
since the Democrats have become captives of the money wing of their party."

Bush fundraiser linked to crashed drug plane


Remember the strange circumstances surrounding the Gulfstream II jet filled with
3.7 tons of cocaine that crashed in the Yucatan last month? There's more.

According to Mad Cow Morning News, the plane was once owned by ultra-rich Bush supporter
Stephen Adams. (In July, the Federal Election Commission filed suit against Adams on charges that
he "failed to report and include proper disclaimers on $1,000,000 in billboard ads during the 2004 race.")

Not only that, but Mad Cow alleges that Adam's business partner owned the other
American drug plane that was found in Mexico with 5.5 tons of cocaine in 2006.

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

Bush is stealing $220,000,000 every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

It's the biggest theft in Earth's history.

Exxon made $10B profit in 90 days
 $100M a day - all profit - because Bush started a fake war


Some people celebrate Bush's bloody oil war...

Some don't.
x 3,839....3,842

We lost another 3 soldiers since last issue.

We've had 3,842 soldiers killed.
If you don't like it, talk to this man.

The soldiers have 477 days until 
sanity returns to the White House.

How much did BIG OIL make yesterday?
Exxon makes $108M - every day

Bush can live with that,
because Iraq's oil wells have no meters
and his front company is moving to Dubai.

 $100M a day,
$200M a day,
$300M a day - where's that money going?

Bush has killed more Americans than Osama.
