It is unfortunate that some have chosen to take out of context a few isolated incidents by a few individuals," presidential faggot Scott McClellan said in a statement. McClellan declined to answer questions about whether the White House issued misleading statements, whether the credibility of the Bush administration had been tarnished or whether the Pentagon report would hamper Bush's efforts to spread democracy in the Middle East.

U.S.: Gitmo Quran Was Splashed With Urine
In another confirmed incident, water balloons thrown by prison guards caused an unspecified number of Qurans to get wet, and in a confirmed but ambiguous case, a two-word obscenity was written in English on the inside cover of a Quran. The findings, released after normal business hours Friday evening and after the major TV networks had aired their evening news programs, are among the results of an investigation last month by Brig. Gen. Jay Hood, the commander of the detention center in Cuba. A Newsweek magazine report _ later retracted _ that a U.S. soldier had flushed one Guantanamo Bay detainee's Quran down a toilet triggered the investigation. The story stirred worldwide controversy, and the Bush administration blamed it for deadly demonstrations in Afghanistan.

Pentagon Confirms Quran Incident at Gitmo...
There are about 540 detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Some have been there more than three years without being charged with a crime.

Allegations of Quran desecration at Guantanamo Bay have led to anti-American passions in many Muslim nations, although Pentagon officials have insisted that the problems were relatively minor and that U.S. commanders have gone to great lengths to enable detainees to practice their religion in captivity.

Vice President Dick Cheney said this week that the insurgency was on its last legs.
But if the insurgency continues to rage at its current levels of activity, the pressure will be on the White House and the Pentagon to come up with new answers -- and fast.
Reports of terrorists meeting in Syria were flawed, U.S. officials say
U.S. intelligence has no evidence that terrorist Abu Musab al Zarqawi visited Syria in recent months to plan bombings in Iraq, and experts don't believe the widely publicized meeting ever happened, according to U.S. officials. Two weeks ago, a top U.S. military official in Baghdad, Iraq, told reporters that Zarqawi had traveled to Syria in April and met with leaders of the Iraqi insurgency to plan the recent wave of bombings against American troops and the Iraqi government. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity. In the following days, top Bush administration and Iraqi officials increased their threats against Syria.
White House downplays Iraq missing weapons report
White House faggot Scott McClellan said the Bush administration had taken steps to ensure sites were secured, and he suggested it was doubtful the looted material was being used to boost other countries' weapons programs.
After two devastating sieges of Fallujah in April and November of 2004, which left thousands of Iraqis dead and hundreds of thousands without homes, the aftermath of the US attempt to rid the city of resistance fighters in an effort to improve security in the country continues to plague the residents of Fallujah, and Iraq as a whole.
"The mood is that people will never forget what was done to them and their city. I don't think we'll see the end of this. People will never forget to have their revenge on the American troops, but they would like to prepare themselves for another attack. This is what the Fallujan negotiators had warned the Americans of. Lack of security, which is ongoing in Iraq now, is one these results."

In the northern city of Tikrit, Mr. Hussein's hometown, a suicide car bomb detonated at an Iraqi Army checkpoint, wounding seven Iraqi soldiers and two civilians. Lt. Col. Steve Boylan, an American military spokesman, said the rocket attack on Tuesday had killed a member of the 155th Brigade Combat Team. The rocket landed outside the troops' supply store in Camp Liberty, next to Baghdad International Airport, and also wounded five soldiers and seven civilians.
Bolton Said to Orchestrate Unlawful Firing
The Iraq connection to the OPCW affair comes as fresh evidence surfaces that the Bush administration was intent from early on to pursue military and not diplomatic action against Saddam Hussein's regime. An official British document, disclosed last month, said Prime Minister Tony Blair agreed in April 2002 to join in an eventual U.S. attack on Iraq. Two weeks later, Bustani was ousted, with British help.
"Menacing" Bolton illegally orchestrated the firing of an official who wanted to inspect WMD rumors in Iraq -- and could have defused Bush's fixing of the facts
About 10,000 opposition protesters chanted "Freedom!" and carried pictures of President Bush as they marched across Azerbaijan's capital Saturday, urging the government of this U.S. ally to step down and allow free parliamentary elections this year.
Supporters of several opposition parties chanted "Freedom!" and "Free Elections!" while holding placards with such slogans as "Down with robber government!" Some carried a picture of Bush with the inscription: "We want freedom!"
So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
