WAR OF TERROR
The so-called global war on terrorism does not exist, a high-ranking army officer has declared in a speech that challenges the conventional political wisdom.http://www.smh.com.au/news/National/Brigadier-shocks-and-awes-there-is-no-war-on-terrorism/2005/04/26/1114462041971.html?oneclick=true
In a frank speech, Brigadier Justin Kelly dismissed several of the central tenets of the Iraq war and the war on terrorism, saying the "war" part is all about politics and terrorism is merely a tactic.

"The large increases in terrorist attacks reported in 2004 may undermine administration claims of success in the war on terror," he wrote. "But political inconvenience has never been a legitimate basis for withholding facts from the American people."

Bush has piously stated that he was opposed to torture. Fine. But the proof of the pudding is for him to issue an executive order against torture and to announce that the U.S. will once again abide by the Geneva Conventions.
No accountability for Abu Ghraibhttp://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2005/04/26/EDGL7CDUFA1.DTL
The Army is essentially closing the book on the Abu Ghraib scandal, but that won't make it go away. The photographs of prisoners in hoods, being threatened by attack dogs, are some of the indelible images of a "war on terror'' in which illegal actions, such as detaining prisoners without a hearing and authorizing torture, became standard operating procedure.

Even Republicans winced when Bush was photographed tiptoeing through the Texas bluebonnets hand in hand with the Saudi crown prince. A White House operation that was on point should surely have managed to avoid that.
The White House keeps insisting that the guy impersonating a Secret Service agent who tossed the so-called Denver Three out of President Bush's Social Security road show here on March 21 was a nobody, an overzealous Republican Party volunteer, a rogue vigilante bouncer. http://www.denverpost.com/Stories/0,1413,36%7E115%7E2835869,00.html
White House spokesman Scott McClellan continues to dismiss such complaints as political stunts. But the Secret Service revealed last week that it has reopened its investigation. Impersonating a Secret Service agent is a federal crime with a maximum penalty of three years in prison.

"A spoiled child [Bush] is telling us our Social Security isn't safe anymore, so he's gonna fix it for us. Well, here's your answer, you ungrateful whelp: [sound of three shotgun blasts]. "The AAARP — the American Association of Armed Retired People [sound of rifle being cocked]. Just try it, you little bastard."
