Bush freed Xmas bombers


Brian Ross of ABC News reports that two of the four men behind the plot to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day
were actually prisoners of the United States and that, under Bush, were released into a Saudi art rehabilitation program.

According to Defense Department records, Muhamad Attik al-Harbi (now known as Muhamad al-Awfi) and Said Ali Shari
were released from detention at Guantanamo Bay in 2007 despite allegations of material support for military operations in Afghanistan.

Hard to believe Bush would turn someone loose when they could still be tortured.

Subject: Racial Profiling

Hey Bart,

Yes, I'm still absolutely opposed to racial profiling because it is based in racism.

Devil's advocate - what if the "experts" say that racial profiling saves lives?

Surely you want them to look closer at a 22 year old dude from Yemen
than a 65 year old woman from Sweden, right?

For example, how many white guys with buzz cuts were "detained" after
Tim McVeigh murdered 168 people in OK city?    Zero.

I'm not sure that question makes flying any safer.

So how is a successful terrorist bombing less scary than a failed attempt?

I think a successful terrorist bombing is more scary than a failed attempt

I blame the 24-hour news cycle.
The Blitzer wannabes have to have something scary to keep us glued to the TV.

True, but any explosive on a any flight is a super-deadly thing.

Liberally yours,

I'm glad we can disagree and be civil.

Band of Brothers Box Set Blu-Ray DVDs

Just $58 for both w/ free shipping

An impressively rigorous, unsentimental, and harrowing look at combat during World War II,
Band of Brothers follows a company of airborne infantry--Easy Company--from boot camp through the end of the war.
The brutality of training takes the audience by increments to the even greater brutality of the war;
Easy Company took part in some of the most difficult battles, including the D-Day invasion of Normandy,
the failed invasion of Holland, and the Battle of the Bulge, as well as the liberation of a
concentration camp and the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest.

Obama, Our Judas?
Demo base is very angry at him

Obama probably thinks that if he just hangs out with his political enemies for a bit that somehow they will learn
to see things the progressive way, isn't that what Lincoln did? Somehow those guys will start to soften and compromise,
do something for the greater good for a change rather than look after themselves. But, the reality is, that special interests
and Republicans are playing him for a fool, showering him with advice that makes sense on the surface, but in the end
results in the betrayal of the middle class (and America). The end result is the enrichment of those who would crucify
the "good" for 30 billion bucks without much second thought.

Mike Malloy Live

Obama, the Fallen Messiah 
  by Max Blumenthal


Many progressives believed they had discovered their savior in Obama, who proclaimed in his book, 
"I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views."...

When Obama announced his plan to escalate the war in Afghanistan and appeared to stand by passively as 
the public option and Medicare buy-in proposals were scrapped to mollify Joseph Lieberman, the progressive left 
went into contortions. Former Obama zealots now openly attack him as everything from a warmonger to a tool of 
Wall Streeters like Rahm Emanuel and Robert Rubin. "Kill the bill!" has become the battle cry.

The liberal left has become so disgruntled that a leading Rethug asked me if progressives were considering a primary 
challenge to Obama. I laughed and stated that Obama would win a second term. Whether or not that happens, those 
former Obama fanatics experiencing a crisis in faith should look in the mirror. They demanded a secular salvation fantasy 
and participated in the messianization of the candidate who delivered it to them. They now know that Obama is just a politician. 
What they have refused to acknowledge is that he would not have fallen so hard had they not lifted him so high.

Obama vs Dean, who gets your 2012 vote?
 It's just like one of them fancy britches Kos polls!

Note: These are all true and accurate - I didn't "monkey" with these results.

Dean in a heartbeat.

Howard Dean, no question

I would vote for Dean.

I'd support and vote for DEAN.
Sick and tired of these corporate DINOs.

Howard Dean is The Man.
Maybe he could get Alan Grayson for VP ?
Or else Al Franken would do.

I think the rwers knew no puke would win in 2008, and maybe it's me,
but it didn't seem like mccane really tried.  So what did they do?
Stealthily get behind Obama because they knew he'd have their back.
There, I said it.   Disgusted Ex-Obama supporter,

Why Dean of course!  I would also donate to his campaign.
Obama is just sitting on his hands on healthcare and sending more troops to a stupid war.
He is blowing his presidency in the first year of office.  He could have been a great president
if he had listened to us progressives that worked to get him elected.

Howard Dean…unequivocally!!
Toss in Kucinich and we have a dream team.

I would vote for Howard Dean in a hear tbeat...or Hillary...or just  about anyone except Obama.
What a huge disappointment. This is where  experience would have come in real handy.
He seems clueless.

I'd vote for Dean in 2012.
 Al  G

I would vote for Dean if he ran against Obama in the primary.

Better yet, what if Hillary challenges in 2012?
Even better, what if Obama doesn’t seek 2nd term??
Repug’s wouldn’t have a chance against Hillary!

Hey Bart, if the primary were today I would vote for practically any credible primary candidate.
If the presidential election were today I probably wouldn’t bother to vote!
 Ed K

First, Dennis Kucinich then Howard Dean plus Hillary third and never Obama.
If examined closely I think one could find a Republican chip implanted in his ass
around 2004 when Kerry of Skull & Bones foisted him upon us.
Have a nice day, Bart and keep hammering.

Dean, in a New York minute.
 Scott Peterson (no, not that one)

Dean.  Easily.  I almost voted for him last year,
but I didn't want to mess things up worse.
  AJ in Wellington, KS   faithful reader and listener

 Michael Y

Dean is who i would vote for

I would vote for Howard Dean.
 Mary Lou in Iowa

Bart, I would defiantly vote for Dean.
 Dave in L.A.

 Kenneth C

Dean, hands down.
He is that rarest of Dems, a FIGHTER.
And he hates the Rethugs.
 Neil in Maine

If the election was today, I'd vote for Howard Dean...
 Kenneth N

I'd vote for Dean....
He is the only Democrat who consistently says the same stance on important topics.
 BobbyLee in Iowa

 David R

Easy.  I vote Dean.  
Because I am mad, and I don’t believe Obama can or will effectively lead this country.  
I had hoped so after the nomination fight was over, but I haven’t seen any signs of leadership.
He does give a good speech, though.
Keep up the hammerin’!
 Michael C

 James D

I would vote for Dean in a heartbeat. 
He is the one that the corporate-media sabotaged in 2004 because they are scared of any real  reform. 
Obama has always been a moderate. I voted for Kucinich because I knew Obama was more of the same. 
Democrats had better get their act together because it looks to me like ANY  republican could beat Obama. 
He has turned his back on those that got him elected and they're not going to be there for him in 2012. 
Maybe racist Joe Wilson was right?
 Scott U

I'd vote for Dean.
 Gregg H

So far, it's a monster landslide for Dean.
These are the actual results, no kidding around.
Of the people who chose to reply, NOT ONE is sticking with Obama.

Does our president know how much trouble he's in?

This HC Bill Blows Donkey
 by Howard Dean


If I were a senator, I would not vote for the current health-care bill. Any measure that expands private insurers' monopoly
over health care and transfers millions of taxpayer dollars to private corporations is not real health-care reform. Real reform
would insert competition into insurance markets, force insurers to cut unnecessary administrative expenses and spend
health-care dollars caring for people. Real reform would significantly lower costs, improve the delivery of health care
and give all Americans a meaningful choice of coverage. The current Senate bill accomplishes none of these.

> Let's stop any tanker that tries to leave Iran and choke off their money supply.
> The alternative is allowing them to nuke Israel and that wouldn't be fun. 

If I didn't read this on Bartcop I would think it was from some neo-con.  
Israel, which has 100s of nukes, fears Iran???   Who has Iran attacked lately?  
Like no one in over a 100 years!

I guess I'm the only one who thinks Iran with nukes is a bad thing.

Why solve a problem in advance when you could allow Iran to nuke Israel,
which will cause Israel to go totally postal and launch every nuke they own
which will kill every man, woman and child in Iran?

The three people who wrote to complain about my position failed to mention 
an alternative because I don't think one exists unless you count closing your eyes 
and hoping things work out.   Or praying that God steps in and saves us.

Why do people think calling me a neo-con and promising to boycott  will prevent this coming-very-soon nuclear war?

Rethugs funding Tea Baggers


The political action committee behind the Tea Bag Express (TBE) -- which already has been slammed as inauthentic 
and corporate-controlled by rival factions in the Tea Party movement -- directed around two thirds of its spending 
during a recent reporting period back to the Republican consulting firm that created the PAC in the first place.

Our Country Deserves Better (OCDB) spent around $1.33 million from July through November. 
Of that sum, $870,489 went to consulting firm Russo, Marsh, and Associates, or people associated with it.

OCDB, which built the Tea Bag Express, is essentially a Russo, Marsh creation, as we've detailed. The PAC's site
was registered in July 2008 by Sal Russo, the firm's founder. That site also lists Russo as the PAC's "chief strategist." 
Tea Bag Express fundraising emails, sent by OCDB come from another Russo employee, Joe Wierzbicki.

Just for good measure, legendary GOP bamboozler Howard Kaloogian is also on OCDB's board, 
and has close ties to Russo, Marsh.

The last poll I saw showed the Teabaggers pushing the GOP into third place.
The party of Palin and the Pigboy continues to be ...revolting.
