I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information."

The Pentagon, through black operations, is currently attempting to pull off with “pseudo-gang” (think al-Zarqawi) false flag terrorist groups (for instance, sectarian bombings of mosques and assassination of religious figures, operations distinctly different than those launched by the resistance, viz., using suicide bombers against Iraqi police and security forces organized by the Americans).The last throes of truth in Iraq

in Iraq. The move is not part of a plan to establish a permanent US military presence, officials assured the Washington Post. But the structures have distinctly permanent characteristics, replete with blast-proof barracks. The funding came as part of the $82 billion supplemental approved a few weeks back.

Problems arise when invading a foreign country, such as fighting on unfamiliar terrain and dealing with people who speak different languages and have very different values. A foreign country's actions are hard for the U.S. to predict. Moreover, because the U.S. is fighting in somebody else's country, its adversaries know that eventually the troops are going home, and if they hold out long enough, they could prevail.Military Finds Itself in Twilight Zone Thus, a cowed and politicized military establishment, hailed as invincible just two years ago, marches steadily on a demoralizing but all-too-familiar path.Fox News Admits Bias!
Even we at Fox News manage to get some lefties on the air occasionally, and often let them finish their sentences before we club them to death and feed the scraps to Karl Rove and Bill O'Reilly.FOX News finally notices the Downing Street Memo, but downplays it

And what is in those reports? The names of American individuals and companies that may have violated export restriction bans on the shipment of dangerous weapons material to China, Libya, and even Iran.

The administration has permitted the top Republican and the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee to review copies of 10 intelligence reports, based on communications intercepted by the agency, about which Bolton requested the additional information.

President Bush again failed to address longstanding concerns regarding US detention policies and practices in the context of the "war on terror", Amnesty International said in response to his comments today.The Bush Administration Was For Amnesty International Before It Was Against It

US Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld strongly criticised the media on Wednesday for what he called uneven coverage of whether US forces abuse terror suspects and defended the military against such charges.This morning, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld brought up the stories of ongoing abuse of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Instead of addressing the actual charges, however, Rumsfeld attacked the media for continuing to cover the story.
He said: Two of the country’s largest newspapers, for example, have devoted more than 80 editorials combined since March of 2004 to Abu Ghraib and detainee issues, often repeating the same erroneous assertions and recycling the same stories. By comparison, precious little has been written by those editorial boards about the beheading of innocent civilians by terrorists, the thousands of bodies found in mass graves in Iraq, the allegations of rape of women and girls by U.N. workers in the Congo.Condoleezza Rice: "a bitch running riot on the beach".The sketch, it observed sarcastically, was littered with "gems of totalitarian wit".Rice gets desperate to create a war

Four years ago, thousands of draft evaders and others who violated the Selective Service laws were unconditionally pardoned by my predecessor.
