Almost 70 Percent Of U.S. Casualties In Iraq Under Age 30 ?

The Sound Of Silence
Silence is the sound of surrender. The sound of fear. Creating fear is the quickest way to achieve silence. Who benefits from the silence? Who would want to mute the mouths of Americans? You ask yourself that question; don't run around asking everyone else until you can answer it. It is not a trick question. It is a very simple question and has been answered by generations of the past. Rome, Germany, Russia, France, and China are prime examples of a people that were silent. As the past will prove, it is not an imaginary organization that benefits from a nations silence. Indeed, it is the leaders of that nation’s government which benefits from the silence.

Did the administration handle intelligence properly, and was it honest in building its case for war?

Indictments put focus on neoconservatives
In the late 1990s, Libby was among those associated with the Project for a New American Century, a think tank that publicly urged President Clinton to use military force to remove Hussein from power.

FLASHBACK: Pentagon Plans Iran Attack Over Oil Euro Marker By Christmas 2005
This was written in 2001!

More than nine troubled months after taking the oath of office and in the wake of the indictment of a senior administration official, Christian Fundamentalist Bush will try to give his second term a fresh start by speaking more bluntly about the threat from Islamic Fundamentalism!

These are dark days for the White House. And they could get darker. Less than a year after winning re-election by a comfortable margin, President Bush's approval ratings are at the lowest since he took office in 2001 and he is being whipsawed this week by events, some of his own making. The U.S. death toll in Iraq hit 2,000 on Tuesday, a fresh reminder of the president's push to war over weapons of mass destruction that were never found. A special prosecutor took aim at White House officials in an investigation into the leak of a CIA agent's identity, a disclosure that may have been part of a campaign to discredit an Iraq war critic. The vice president's chief of staff was indicted on five felony counts Friday, although top aide Karl Rove escaped charges for now. An insurrection of the president's conservative political base forced the withdrawal of Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers on Thursday.
Consumer confidence dropped, home sales were down and the number of people who lost their jobs because of Hurricane Katrina climbed above the half-million mark
The best thing about bad news is it might get better.

The President and Vice President of the United States in American are responsible for their offices. I recently sent a letter to my only Representive in the US Government, Heather Wilson, about the impeachment of George Walker Bush and Richard Bruce Cheney for Treason, War Crimes and Misdemeanors. Her web site must be broken because there are letters posted that call for permanent tax cuts just because we have a huge surplus? I got a letter dated last week about her support for Bill Clinton's impeachment? When I wrote her back again asking why she would vote to impeach a President for lying about sex and not vote to impeach a President who 'lied to start a War' that has resulted in the medical evacuations of ? US Troops and killed over ? Iraqi civilians. Heather Wilson wrote me back saying that she understood that I didn't like George W. Bush but that isn't any reason to impeach him? The time has come to bring these corrupt and greedy politicians "to justice"! The US Government's propaganda campaign for the war in Iraq could not have been accomplished without help from the corporate "liberal" media. As Saddam's punishment for using our WMDS againt Iran and Terrorists, we should just give Iraq back to Saddam. Then we should put Heather Wilson, George Bush 41 and 43, Dick Cheney, Hillary Clinton, The Democrats, The Republicans, and every "news" organization on trial for War Crimes Against Humanity. Are you still free because of the brave? Why not?

Bush's imploding presidency he can start "Dubya-Dubya-Three".

Bush calls Iran and Syria 'outlaw regimes' from the President who lied about weapons of mass destruction in order to launch an illegal war of conquest against an innocent nation?

Military shares public's declining support for Bush, Iraq War
56 percent strongly disapproved or disapproved of how he has dealt with the Iraq war.
House Republicans have voted to cut student loan subsidies, child support, Medicaid, food stamps, and farm subsidies to cut $50,000,000,000.00 from the bankrupt US Government, after they just voted a few weeks ago to send $50,000,000,000.00 more to the Islamic Republic of Iraq? The territorial pissings in Iraq have made the entire US Govenrnment illegitimate and criminal. Lying to start wars is the worst crime any government can commit, I'm not just talking about George WMD Bush either. 911 and WMD were not intelligence failures, but a smashing success for the Christian/Zionist Neo Cons. Every religion has terrorists, not just Islam. Go google, PNAC, AIPAC, WHIG, OSP. Why is the Corporate Liberal Media afraid to report on any of this? Instead of the Project For A New American Century's, "New Pearl Harbor of the 21st Century," we need a "Lexington and Concord of the 21st Century!" I look forward to the day when Republicans and Democrats realize they are Americans first, and tar and feather every last traitor, politico, and news?whore. Is this still the home of the free because of the brave?

Cindy Sheehan: Don't support Clinton unless she flips on war,0,4391070.story?coll=ny-region-apnewyork
The former first lady voted in 2002 for the war resolution and has since supported troop-level expansions even while criticizing President Bush's handling of Iraq. She is up for re-election next year and leads national polls among potential 2008 Democratic presidential candidates.

2,000 U.S. deaths in Iraq adds to pressure on Bush
Bush launched the Iraq war in 2003 hoping for a quick victory with minimal casualties. The Iraqi army was quickly defeated and, when confronted by early attacks by militants, Bush was initially defiant, declaring: "Bring 'em on!"

George WMD Bush tried Tuesday to begin reviving U.S. support for the war in Iraq and reinvigorating his troubled presidency as the U.S. military death toll topped 2,000.
Bush, contends that the U.S. must work to prevent terrorist attacks before they occur, and keep weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of "outlaw regimes" ?

The outlaw Bush regime has abandoned research into a nuclear "bunker-buster" warhead, deciding instead to pursue a similar device using conventional weaponry.
Administration officials have contended the country must try to develop a nuclear warhead that could destroy deeply buried targets including bunkers tunneled into solid rock.

Q Dispatches from Iraq said that yesterday we killed 70 people in Iraq, near Ramadi, including 18 children. I want to know what the President thinks of that.

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, first of all, I think you need to talk to the military, because the military --
Q No, I'm talking here.
MR. McCLELLAN: Yes, and as I'm responding to you, the military has said otherwise at this point. Now, the military has review mechanisms in place and when there are questions raised, they look into those matters, and so that's something that, obviously, they will look into. But, beyond that, you'd have to talk to the military about where that stands. Now --
Q Eighteen children --
MR. McCLELLAN: -- in terms of our United States military, our military goes out of the way not to target --
Q Why were 18 children killed?
MR. McCLELLAN: Our military goes out of the way not to target innocent civilians.
Q I'm not saying they were targeted --
MR. McCLELLAN: Our military goes out of the way to target the enemy, and to --
Q Why did they say 18 children?
MR. McCLELLAN: -- bring to justice the terrorists and those who are seeking to prevent democracy from taking hold, through violent means, to justice. And that's what our military does. And they do --
Q Seventy people were killed by an air strike.
MR. McCLELLAN: Helen, please let me respond, because I think it's important to point this out when you're bringing up a question like this. We fully support our men and women in uniform. They're doing an outstanding job to defend our freedoms and to help the Iraqi people move forward on a free --
Q I'm not saying -- I'm saying why did they kill 70 people?
MR. McCLELLAN: -- to move forward on a free and peaceful future. I think everybody in this room would like me to have the opportunity to be able to talk to you about this question. And you're assuming things that people have different recollections about right now, or have characterized very differently. And that's why I said the military has review mechanisms in place, when situations like this arise, and they look into those matters. That's why you need to talk to the military, to see where that stands.
Q Are the figures wrong in all the newspapers?
MR. McCLELLAN: The military is looking into the matter, Helen. I don't have any more information at this point.
Q If I could follow on Helen's question, though. Whatever the facts of this particular situation are, war is an inexact business, and children do get killed. And what I think she's asking is for a response from the President about children who may have been killed as a result of American action.
MR. McCLELLAN: Look, I don't want to assume, because this is an incident that's being looked into.
Q I'm not assuming. I'm not assuming.
MR. McCLELLAN: And I want to also make the point -- and I think you can go back and look at this -- yes, war is always the last resort. It's not something that's pleasant. But it is a decision that sometimes the Commander-in-Chief has to make in order to protect the American people. And he made the decision that we were going to go on the offensive in this global war on terrorism that we're engaged in, and that's exactly what we're doing, and that we're going to work to spread freedom and democracy in a part of the world that is in need of hope. And you have to recognize the struggle that we're engaged in.
And there are people in Iraq, terrorists, who recognized how high the stakes are, and they're seeking to do everything they can to stop the democratic process from advancing. And there are attacks carried out on some of our troops. And when those attacks are carried out on our troops, you have others that respond to that. And we appreciate all that our men and women in uniform are doing when it comes to defending our freedoms abroad.
Now, in terms of any innocent people being killed, we mourn the loss of any innocent life that is lost. We have seen that the terrorists have no regard for innocent human life. That's the difference between the enemy and between those in the civilized world who are committed to spreading freedom and peace. We target the enemy; they target innocent civilians. And there's a stark contrast in how we go about waging this war on terrorism. They carry out cowardly acts against innocent civilians. We go after those who seek to do harm to those innocent civilians.

Cheney's Office Is A Focus in Leak Case
Starting in the days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the vice president was at the forefront of a White House campaign to convince Congress and the American public that invading Iraq was central to defeating terrorists worldwide. Cheney, a longtime proponent of toppling Saddam Hussein, led the White House effort to build the case that Iraq was an imminent threat because it possessed a dangerous arsenal of weapons.

Note the attempt to explain Cheney's actions away as a feud with the CIA. It is clear that the mainstream media is preparing to bury the real issue behind the outing of Valerie Plame, which was Joe Wilson's exposure of the Niger Yellow cake claim as a fraud and the subsequent revelation that the documents the White House had been using were forged, proving that the lies about Iraq were deliberate.
So, start getting ready now. When Fitzgerald announces his indictments, FLOOD
the media with emails making the connection between the outing of Plame with the forged Niger documents and the White House Iraq Group. Let them know that YOU know the scandal behind the scandal is the deliberate lie that sent this nation to war.
It took us a month to do it, but we forced the Downing Street Minutes onto the front pages of America. We need to do it again. If the Mainstream media is convinced that most Americans see that the outing of Plame was part of keeping the lid on the lies, they will run the story for no other reason that not looking like the government shills they have been all along.

There is a fight coming up; a fight for the truth. History will be made in the next few months, and you will be a part of it.

CIA leak probe 'widening to include use of intelligence'
Fitzgerald's indictments may kick off a firestorm, but they won't end it. Outing Valerie Plame ended her career and has caused her great financial harm. To a lesser extent, Joe Wilson also suffered financial harm from the smear job Karl Rove unleashed on him. Wilson has announced that he and Valerie will likely sue Bush, Cheney and other White House staff yet to be named. And there is no way to stop the suit due to the unanimous 1997 Supreme Court Decision ruling that Paula Jones' sexual harassment suit against then-President Bill Clinton could go forward immediately, a decision that was hailed by conservatives at the time. That means Bush and Cheney will be forced to take the stand, under oath, and in a suit like this, motive is a valid line of questioning.

WHIG out!
Cheney's name has come up amid indications Fitzgerald may be edging closer to a blockbuster conspiracy charge - with help from a secret snitch.”

...In addition, at least six current and former Cheney staffers - most members of the White House Iraq Group [“WHIG”] - have testified before the grand jury, including the vice president's top honcho, Lewis (Scooter) Libby, and two top Cheney national security lieutenants.

White House Iraq Group
The members of the White House Iraq Group are: [7]
Karl Rove
Karen Hughes
Mary Matalin
Andrew Card

Stephen Hadley
I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby

FLASHBACK: Rove at War
Why has Condi Rice gotten such a free pass in the Plamegate scandal? . She was faxed a "briefing book" that contained parts of if not all of the State Department memo ,apparently cooked up by Bolton and Fleitz, while en route to Afrrica with her trained chimp, George. The NSC staff is said to have produced the briefing book. HOOEY. The NSC staff didn't have time to gather all that information with such haste. Mr. Steve Hadley, a member of WHIG, received the fruits of Dick Cheney's 4 month long inquiry into the background of Ambassador Joseph Wilson. There is solid speculation that an NSC staffer with ties to the CIA added crucial additional details. Why do we say this? a) The instructions to Rice came from the Office of Vice President Dick Cheney : "PROTECT CHENEY".... Libby must have spoken to Hadley, Cheney's boy at NSC, and relayed these glad tidings to Kind of Sleazy Rice on Air Force One. b) We know the "TOP SECRET" briefing book faxed to Rice contained a swath of classified data , hence it's identification. c) We know that Ari Fleischer must have had access to Wilson's still classified CIA report , because he blurted out it's content to reporters. ( Condi to Ari to press) The "protect Cheney" briefing book was not used to merely help Rice prepare for Sunday Morning talk shows . You don't fax classified data for that purpose. NSC and others would merely send her the appropriate "talking points" for her to emphasise for upcoming appearances on those programmes. Rice received "the work-up" dossier to begin the process of wasting Wilson and his wife. She handed over this "goodie-bag" to Fleischer , a very stupid move. The "PROTECT CHENEY" briefing book came from the headquarters of WHIG , the office of Vice President Richard Cheney. It was routed through NSC for legal reasons. This agency is independent of Congressional oversight. Members are not confirmed by Congress. NSA's almost never testify before Congress. If you do the dirty work through that venue , it is easier to use the executive privlege dodge. Iran-Contra was run out of NSC , for that express reason. Rice invoked that dodge when she refused to testify before the 9/11 commission.

A reply from Heather Wilson ?

Monday, October 17, 2005 4:39 PM -0400

Dear Fejer Family,
Thank you for contacting me with your concerns about President Clinton and the Independent Counsel's investigation. Residents of the 1st Congressional District and every corner of New Mexico have called, written and e-mailed me their views about this most serious issue. I appreciate having your opinions as well.
After careful review, the majority of members on the House Judiciary Committee recommended that an official investigation begin to determine whether sufficient grounds exist to impeach President Clinton. On October 8, 1998, the full House of Representatives voted on a resolution to allow the Judiciary committee to begin this investigation, with both the Chairman and the Ranking Minority Member given equal powers to subpena witnesses. All but five members of Congress voted to conduct a formal investigation. It is important to note that this resolution only authorizes an inquiry by the House Judiciary Committee. Only after the Committee's inquiry is completed will there be an opportunity by the full House of Representatives to decide on the actual matter of impeachment. Tthe Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Henry Hyde, has repeatedly stated his desire for a fair, open, and swift investigation.
As the Judiciary Committee undertakes its investigation, I wish to assure you that I will make every effort to exercise my independent judgement based on the facts, the laws and the Constitution which I have sworn to protect and defend. This is an onerous responsibility that has been thrust upon us, and I will proceed deliberately and thoughtfully, trying to do what is best for the country.

Again, thank you for contacting me, and please do not hesitate to contact me in the future regarding issues that are important to you.

Again, thank you for contacting me. Please continue to contact me about issues that are important to you. While I commute from my home in Albuquerque to Washington D.C., for voting and committee hearings, you can always check my web site for upcoming community events to find where you can catch me around town.
Heather Wilson
Member of Congress

"How many people have been killed in the "effort to end terrorism" as compared to the number of people actually killed by terrorists? "

Condi Rice finally tells the truth
"But the fact of the matter is that when we were attacked on September 11, we had a choice to make. We could decide that the proximate cause was al-Qaeda and the people who flew those planes into buildings and, therefore, we would go after al-Qaeda and perhaps after the Taliban and then our work would be done and we would try to defend ourselves. Or we could take a bolder approach, which was to say that we had to go after the root causes of the kind of terrorism that was produced there, and that meant a different kind of Middle East. And there is no one who could have imagined a different kind of Middle East with Saddam Hussein still in power."I thought the reason we went into Iraq was because they had WMD’s? Members of the administration even outed an undercover CIA agent and smeared her husband in retaliation because somebody actually had the nerve to do a little fact checking on the lies that the White House told about Iraq's WMD capabilities.

Criticism of Harriet Miers as an unqualified crony of the president is unfounded, unqualified crony Condoleezza Rice said Sunday!
Bush on Wednesday said, "People are interested to know why I picked Harriet Miers. "They want to know Harriet Miers' background. They want to know as much as they possibly can before they form opinions. Part of Harriet Miers' life is her religion."

Five U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq bombing
At least 1,975 members of the U.S. military have died since the war began.

Every U.S. soldier takes an express and solemn oath to “support and defend the Constitution.” That oath, however, is a sham because the troops do not support or defend the Constitution. Instead, when it comes to war the troops follow another oath they take — to obey the orders of the president, and they do this without regard to whether such orders violate the Constitution.
Isn’t it ironic that, even as the troops waging war in Iraq exhort the American people to support them, the troops, by invading Iraq without the constitutionally required congressional declaration of war, have failed to support the Constitution?

Vice President's role in outing of CIA agent under examination, sources close to prosecutor say
Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is trying to determine whether Vice President Dick Cheney had a role in the outing of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame-Wilson, individuals close to Fitzgerald say. Plame’s husband was a vocal critic of prewar intelligence used by President George W. Bush to build support for the Iraq war.

Gitmo detainees sue the American president
I think all of us should sue the President for lying us into a war. And we should sue for recovery of our tax money spent on this fraudulent war, PLUS DAMAGES.
The case is a simple one. The Constitution does not authorize the government to lie to the people and the Tenth Amendment prohibits the government from simply assuming that right. When the President lied to the people, he ceased acting as the President and acted as a private citizen with private motives. When Bush lied to the Congress, he invalidated the authorization for the use of force in Iraq. So the war is illegal by any interpretation of the law.
Our tax money and the lives of our loved ones were stolen from us through fraud and deceit, with malice aforethought. The laws prohibiting suing the government are only applicable when the government operates within the bounds of the Constitution and the limits of the law. Therefore, Bush and all his Neocon associates who created this war out of thin air are personally liable for the billions of dollars and thousands of deaths that resulted from their lies.
I demand justice on behalf of 288 million Americans. I demand checks to every American refunding the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, plus the cost of the war materials paid for in the years leading up to those wars and used up in the conflicts. I demand additional financial compensation for the families of every service person wrongfully sent to their deaths in these wars based on lies. And I demand punitive damages to send a message to future governments that the days when a people could be lied into a war with impunity are gone forever.
If this is a nation of laws and not of powerful men, now is the time, maybe even the final chance, for the courts to prove it.
George WMD Bush's top aide Karl Rove testified for a fourth time before a grand jury about the leaked identity of a CIA agent, which opponents call "politically motivated."
Right. Only a scum-sucking Liberal Democrat Commie Faggot anti-Semitic Unwed Parent Welfare-sucking Junkie would object to seeing the nation lied into a war of conquest.

The burden of proof is on the US, given that the US clearly lied about Iraq prior to that invasion.

Bush Blinked 37 Times -- With A Lick Of The Lips, Three Weight Shifts And Serious Foot Jiggling...
...the presidential eyes zoomed left, then right, then left and right again, then center, down and up at the interviewer. The presidential fidgeting spiked when Lauer mentioned the Democratic accusation that Bush was performing a "photo op." Bush pushed out his lower front lip, then licked the right corner of his mouth. Lauer's query about whether conservatives "are feeling let down by you" appeared to provoke furious jiggling of the right leg.

Bush Photo-op With Soldiers Staged

George W. Bush's suicidal statecraft
Sixty years ago, Arnold Toynbee concluded, in his monumental "A Study of History," that the ultimate cause of imperial collapse was "suicidal statecraft." Sadly for President George W. Bush's place in history but - much more important - ominously for America's future, it has lately seemed as if that adroit phrase might be applicable to the policies pursued by the United States since the cataclysm of 9/11.

The territorial pissings in Iraq is now costing the United States $6 billion a month, up from about $5 billion a month last year.
The president's supporters have always portrayed Iraq as a simple choice between two extremes: Either support the war in Iraq and the fight against terrorism, or oppose it and coddle the terrorists. But increasingly, voters are raising questions about whether Iraq has made the United States safer, drawing added attention to the spiraling costs -- both financial and human -- of the occupation.

White House eager to showcase political progress amid unabated violence in Iraq

Scott McClellan Says Helen Thomas Opposes 'War of Terrorism'
THOMAS What does the President mean by "total victory" -- that we will never leave Iraq until we have "total victory"? What does that mean?McCLELLAN: Free and democratic Iraq in the heart of the Middle East, because a free and democratic Iraq in the heart of the Middle East will be a major blow to the ambitions --THOMAS If they ask us to leave, then we'll leave?MR. McCLELLAN: I'm trying to respond. A free and democratic Iraq in the heart of the broader Middle East will be a major blow to the ambitions of al Qaeda and their terrorist associates. They want to establish or impose their rule over the broader Middle East -- we saw that in the Zawahiri letter that was released earlier this week by the intelligence community.THOMAS They also know we invaded Iraq.McCLELLAN: Well, Helen, the President recognizes that we are engaged in a global war on terrorism. And when you're engaged in a war, it's not always pleasant, and it's certainly a last resort. But when you engage in a war, you take the fight to the enemy, you go on the offense. And that's exactly what we are doing. We are fighting them there so that we don't have to fight them here. September 11th taught us --THOMAS It has nothing to do with -- Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.McCLELLAN: Well, you have a very different view of the war on terrorism, and I'm sure you're opposed to the broader war on terrorism. The President recognizes this requires a comprehensive strategy, and that this is a broad war, that it is not a law enforcement matter.Terry.TERRY MORAN On what basis do you say Helen is opposed to the broader war on terrorism?McCLELLAN: Well, she certainly expressed her concerns about Afghanistan and Iraq and going into those two countries.

"Al Qaeda in Iraq" says Zawahri letter is fake: Web
"We in Al Qaeda Organization announce that there is no truth to these claims, which are only based on the imagination of the politicians of the Black (White) House and their slaves!"

Who lied us into war?
The easy answer: George WMD Bush. But that's too easy.

George WMD Bush was so upset by Carole Coleman’s White House interview that an official complaint was lodged with the Irish embassy.,,2766-1817008_1,00.html
“Well, I can understand that. People don’t like war. But what they should be angry about is the fact that there was a brutal dictator there that had destroyed lives and put them in mass graves and torture rooms . . . Look, Saddam Hussein had used weapons of mass destruction against his own people, against the neighbourhood. He was a brutal dictator who posed a threat that the United Nations voted unanimously to say, Mr Saddam Hussein . . .” “But, Mr President, you didn’t find any weapons,” I interjected. “Let me finish, let me finish. May I finish?”
With his hand raised, he requested that I stop speaking. He paused and looked me straight in the eye to make sure I had got the message. He wanted to continue, so I backed off and he went on. “The United Nations said, ‘Disarm or face serious consequences’. That’s what the United Nations said. And guess what? He didn’t disarm. He didn’t disclose his arms. And therefore he faced serious consequences. But we have found a capacity for him to make a weapon. See, he had the capacity to make weapons . . .” I was now beginning to feel shut out of this event. He had the floor and he wasn’t letting me dance. My blood was boiling to such a point that I felt like slapping him. But I was dealing with the president of the United States; and he was too far away anyway. I suppose I had been naive to think that he was making himself available to me so I could spar with him or plumb the depths of his thought processes. Sitting there, I knew that I was nobody special and that this was just another opportunity for the president to repeat his mantra. He seemed irked to be faced with someone who wasn’t nodding gravely at him as he was speaking. “But Mr President,” I interrupted again, “the world is a more dangerous place today. I don’t know whether you can see that or not.” “Why do you say that?”
“There are terrorist bombings every single day. It’s now a daily event. It wasn’t like that two years ago.” “What was it like on September 11 2001? It was a . . . there was relative calm, we . . .”
“But it’s your response to Iraq that’s considered . . .” “Let me finish. Let me finish. Please. You ask the questions and I’ll answer them, if you don’t mind.” His hand was raised again as if to indicate that he was not going to tolerate this. Again, I felt I had no choice but to keep quiet. “On September 11 2001, we were attacked in an unprovoked fashion. Everybody thought the world was calm. There have been bombings since then — not because of my response to Iraq. There were bombings in Madrid, there were bombings in Istanbul. There were bombings in Bali. There were killings in Pakistan.” He seemed to be finished, so I took a deep breath and tried once again. So far, facial expressions were defining this interview as much as anything that was said, so I focused on looking as if I was genuinely trying to fathom him. “Indeed, Mr President, and I think Irish people understand that. But I think there is a feeling that the world has become a more dangerous place because you have taken the focus off Al-Qaeda and diverted into Iraq. Do you not see that the world is a more dangerous place? I saw four of your soldiers lying dead on the television the other day, a picture of four soldiers just lying there without their flak jackets.” “Listen, nobody cares more about death than I do . . .”“Is there a point or place . . .” “Let me finish. Please. Let me finish, and then you can follow up, if you don’t mind.” By now he was getting used to the rhythm of this interview and didn’t seem quite so taken aback by my attempt to take control of it. “Nobody cares more about death than I do. I care a lot about it. But I do believe the world is a safer place and becoming a safer place. I know that a free Iraq is going to be a necessary part of changing the world.” The president seemed to be talking more openly now and from the heart rather than from a script. The history lesson on Saddam was over. “Listen, people join terrorist organisations because there’s no hope and there’s no chance to raise their families in a peaceful world where there is not freedom. And so the idea is to promote freedom and at the same time protect our security. And I do believe the world is becoming a better place, absolutely.” I could not tell how much time had elapsed, maybe five or six minutes, so I moved quickly on to the question I most wanted to ask George Bush in person. “Mr President, you are a man who has a great faith in God. I’ve heard you say many times that you strive to serve somebody greater than yourself.” “Right.” “Do you believe that the hand of God is guiding you in this war on terror?” This question had been on my mind ever since September 11, when Bush began to invoke God in his speeches. He spoke as if he believed that his job of stewarding America through the attacks and beyond was somehow preordained, that he had been chosen for this role. He closed his eyes as he began to answer. “Listen, I think that God . . . that my relationship with God is a very personal relationship. And I turn to the Good Lord for strength. I turn to the Good Lord for guidance. I turn to the Good Lord for forgiveness. But the God I know is not one that . . . the God I know is one that promotes peace and freedom. But I get great sustenance from my personal relationship.”
Helen, go ahead.
Q I read that the President is seeking a regime change in Syria. Does he plan to widen the war in the Middle East? And just how does he -- what right would he have to unseat anybody in another country without provocation?
MR. McCLELLAN: Well, I don't know what you're reading, but it doesn't seem like it's an accurate reflection of our policy.
Q The Financial Times.
MR. McCLELLAN: I don't think it's an accurate reflection of our policy.
Q Are you denying --
MR. McCLELLAN: The President talked about our concerns when it comes to Syria earlier today --
Q I know. I'm asking you specifically --
MR. McCLELLAN: -- and he expressed what our view is.
Q -- is he seeking a regime change in Syria?
MR. McCLELLAN: There's no change in our policy toward Syria.
Q Whatever that is.

What a bunch of horse shit. Any American who believes in "al-Qaeda in Iraq" is an idiot. Wake the fuck up! The actions of the US Corporate media are those of traitors. They are not journalists, they are government propagandists. WHORES! I got the tar and feathers.

Forget about those indictments, we have AL QAEDA here!!!

Ooooh, Al Qaeda, ooohhh, bad, bad, BAD Al Qaeda!
Actually, Zawahri is correct. When the US bugged out of Vietnam, they abandoned their assets on the ground. I am certain that the people of Iraq are watching events unfold in the outing of Valerie Plame, and they know that if Fitzgerald does indeed indict most of the WHIG on conspiracy that the lies that led to war will be blown wide open. That will end all support for continuing the US presence in Iraq. The US presence will collapse, and the Iraqis need to be prepared to resume running their own country. Those US puppets in power now should re-read the history of what jappened to the Vichy Government and their supporters after the Nazis were driven out of France.

Bush tries to move beyond criticism over Katrina
As he has in the past, Bush said if a congressional investigation finds the federal government was at fault in the initial response to Katrina, he would accept responsibility.

Bush blinks twice. He touches his tongue to his lips. He blinks twice more. He starts to answer, but he stops himself.The president was a blur of blinks, taps, jiggles, pivots and shifts.
Bush has always been an active man, but standing with Lauer and the serene, steady first lady, he had the body language of a man wishing urgently to be elsewhere.The fidgeting clearly corresponded to the questioning.When the questioning turned to Miers, Bush blinked 37 times in a single answer -- along with a lick of the lips, three weight shifts and some serious foot jiggling.

Focus of CIA Leak Probe Appears to Widen
Lawyers familiar with the investigation believe that at least part of the outcome likely hangs on the inner workings of what has been dubbed the White House Iraq Group. Formed in August 2002, the group, which included Messrs. Rove and Libby, worked on setting strategy for selling the war in Iraq to the public in the months leading up to the March 2003 invasion. The group likely would have played a significant role in responding to Mr. Wilson's claims.

"It was not bad intelligence" that lead to the quagmire in Iraq, "It was an orchestrated effort [that] began before the war" that was designed to mislead the public and the world. Gardiner's research lead him to conclude that the US and Britain had conspired at the highest levels to plant "stories of strategic influence" that were known to be false.
The new information indicates a pattern in which Bush, Cheney and their subordinates -- in public and behind the scenes -- made allegations depicting Iraq's nuclear weapons program as more active, more certain and more imminent in its threat than the data they had would support. On occasion administration advocates withheld evidence that did not conform to their views. The White House seldom corrected misstatements or acknowledged loss of confidence in information upon which it had previously relied

While the culprits would like to pin the blame on the Central Intelligence Agency, the facts point in a different direction. To cite just one example, the now-discredited claim that Saddam was trying to buy "Yellow Cake" Uranium from Niger came from the Pentagon, specifically from Paul Wolfowitz, using information the CIA stated was unreliable. Wolfowitz, and his assistant Douglas Feith, set up a special office called the "Office of Special Plans" in 2001, that fed information to the White House to urge the attack on Iraq. Shortly after the invasion, the OSP was disbanded.
So, this is the trail of the lies that started a war, beginning at the White House, and via Dick Cheney moving upstream to the Pentagon's Office of Special Plans, under Wolfowitz and Feith, then from OSP to a parallel group operating out of Ariel Sharon's office in Israel.

The US Senate is preparing to vote on a hate crimes Bill, S.1145 that will make it illegal to critize Israel. If don't have the 1st Amendment at least we still have the 2nd Amendment. God and Guns are the only hope!This country would be so great if everyone rallied around the President's Nuclear Crusade to rid the world of evil and insanity. God told him to! The claim that only "liberals" are angry about the war in Iraq is Horse Shit. When 46 Republican senators vote 90-9 against the torture of prisoners of war the wheels are falling off the wagon.Conservatives, Exiles Desert War Party latest CBS poll shows that 32 per cent of Americans approve of President George W. Bush's handling of the situation in Iraq, and 59 per cent want US troops out "as soon as possible, even if Iraq is not completely stable".Special Forces Suicides Raise Questions had they been forced to do?I'll be looking forward to the loony talking points next week about the liberal/corporate media, the Democracy/Theocracy in Iraq, and the Treason of Bush/Cheney. The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg are working on stories that point to President Dick Cheney as the target of special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into the leaking of CIA operative Valerie Plame's name. Outing Plame Allowed the Israeli Mossad to Grab Russian Nukes Plame and many CIA agents were working under the cover of a company called Brewster-Jennings and Associates. They were active in Saudi Arabia, China, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia and Syria. Who forged the Niger Documents? Boom!The only way we will ever get out of Iraq is to find out who lied to start the War of Terror.That's what I'm talking about.

The 9/11 Reichstag Fire
9/11 wasn't a surprise attack, it was a governmentally orchestrated "catastrophic and catalyzing event" - the Nazis burned the Reichstag, the Bush administration staged the 9/11 attacks.

U.S. must stop tolerating abuse of prisoners
The White House has only itself to blame for the Senate's rare rebuke of a wartime president. The 90-9 vote to require that U.S. troops use only specific, Army-authorized interrogation techniques on prisoners – tacked onto a $440 billion military spending bill despite a veto warning from the White House – reflected a bipartisan consensus that the abuses seen at GuantÁnamo Bay and in Iraq can no longer be tolerated.

Informant in Iraq admits information about a terrorist plot against New York subway was a hoax...
But it was nicely timed to Bush's terrorist speech, wasn't it?

Scope of Plots Bush Says Were Foiled Is Questioned
The White House acknowledged that many of the plots cited by Bush were based on previously known information. But it would not comment on whether Bush and his administration had claimed credit for thwarting terrorist plots in the United States that, in reality, had not risen to the level of a "serious" operational plot at all, as some federal counter-terrorism officials maintained.

If the cloak of democracy is stripped away, Bush's "wars for democracy" begin to look like the foreign adventures of a megalomaniac. Remove Bush's rhetorical cover, and tolerance at home and abroad for Bush's war would evaporate. If Bush persisted, he would become a pariah.
Americans may feel that they cannot undercut a president at war, in which case Americans will become an embattled people consumed by decades of conflict. Americans can boot out Bush or pay dearly in blood and money.

George Orwell once remarked, "The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them."

If terrorists detonate bombs killing 3,000+ innocent civilians it is an atrocity. If Americans drop bombs from planes killing 100,000+ innocent civilians it is a noble cause.

It seems to me that most Pro-War/Pro-Life Christians in the United States (i.e. George W. Bush) live in a bubble of delusion and fantasy. US Troops occupying Iraq have savagely killed Sunni And Shiite Muslims. Some Christian Religious Leaders have called for the assassination of Hugo Chavez because he has a lot of oil. Last week the White House denied that God told the President of the United States to invade Iraq! Since they lack total credibility, I have to ask how does George W. Bush know he was talking to God and not the Devil?

Ever heard of the Crusades, Palestine, The Shah of Iran, Abu Graib? Most Americans think Jihad means Holy War, when it really means an inner struggle with oneself. The majority of Americans are peace loving people - maybe 20% of Bush's followers support violence. Americans need to speak in a united voice for condemnation of Torture, Pre Emptive Violence, and Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction. Until the world can feel safe from such atrocities the mantra that the USA stands for Freedom and Peace ring hollow.

"In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act."George Orwell

Tell us who fabricated the Iraq evidence ?
So who was it who had been planning since before 9/11 to create a fraudulent casus belli against Saddam?

Whose spy was found inside the Pentagon Office of Special Plansfrom which the "evidence" came?

2,000 U.S. dead?
Who cares?

Q. Aren't virtually all of the accusations that President Bush leveled against Islamic extremists in his speech today equally true of himself and his government? When will the President stop killing civilians in Iraq, stop protecting the drug trade in Afghanistan, stop torturing prisoners, stop developing dangerous new weapons, stop trampling human rights abroad and democracy at home?
I am afraid I must strongly disagree with you. The United States was attacked by Usama bin Laden and al Qaeda? On 9/11, and several times before that, including when they attacked our embassies in 1998. It is our moral responsibility to protect the American people by eliminating the terrorist threat posed by Islamic militants like Bin Laden. I would hope that you can see a vast moral difference between the President’s decision to defend the American people from further attacks and the actions of Islamic radicals who intentionally murder innocent civilians, to advance their evil ideology and agenda. The United States goes to the greatest possible lengths to avoid civilian casualties—to a degree perhaps unprecedented in the history of warfare. And when civilians are accidentally killed during war it is a regrettable tragedy. For the Islamic radicals—the Zarqawis and the Bin Ladins—civilian casualties are the very point. They don’t go to any lengths to avoid them, they rather seek ways to maximize them. The last several years, including 9/11, have been witness to their continual horrors.

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?
