A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

How Ahmed Chalabi Conned the Neocons
The hawks who launched the Iraq war believed the deal-making exile when he promised to build a secular democracy with close ties to Israel. Now the Israel deal is dead, he's cozying up to Iran -- and his patrons look like they're on the way out.
A Salon exclusive.

When the definitive history of the current Iraq war is finally written, wealthy exile Ahmed Chalabi will be among those judged most responsible for the Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq and topple Saddam Hussein. More than a decade ago Chalabi teamed up with American neoconservatives to sell the war as the cornerstone of an energetic new policy to bring democracy to the Middle East -- and after 9/11, as the crucial antidote to global terrorism. It was Chalabi who provided crucial intelligence on Iraqi weaponry to justify the invasion, almost all of which turned out to be false, and laid out a rosy scenario about the country's readiness for an American strike against Saddam that led the nation's leaders to predict -- and apparently even believe -- that they would be greeted as liberators. Chalabi also promised his neoconservative patrons that as leader of Iraq he would make peace with Israel, an issue of vital importance to them. A year ago, Chalabi was riding high, after Saddam Hussein fell with even less trouble than expected.

If only some "reporter" had the cajones to go off script and ask him to tell the truth for a change.

If this scandal happened when Clinton was President, we never would have known Pope John Paul died. The mainstream media has chosen to ignore this story and one must assume they are following orders because of the comedic grist present.

MOST CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION EVER!
TIME reports that political views will keep you out of non-political events because of the un-American activities of the Bush Administration. At least he didn't fire the members of the White House Travel Office.

Any Kerry Supporters On The Line?
The Bush Administration punishes some Democrat backers
By VIVECA NOVAK AND JOHN DICKERSON
[The Inter-American Telecommunication Commission meets three times a year in various cities across the Americas to discuss such dry but important issues as telecommunications standards and spectrum regulations. But for this week's meeting in Guatemala City, politics has barged onto the agenda. At least four of the two dozen or so U.S. delegates selected for the meeting, sources tell TIME, have been bumped by the White House because they supported John Kerry's 2004 campaign.]
This is absolutely a disgusting display of partisanship and punishing people for their political views that don't happen to coincide with their fascist agenda.
Fidel Castro would be so proud.

As if by rote, GWB uses the phrase "I'm looking for to working with..." in numerous speeches and in numerous responses to questions about individuals and groups. BTW, rote can be defined as: 1) the use of memory usually with little intelligence or 2)routine or repetition carried out mechanically or unthinkingly.

Truce Sought with Taliban
I know everything changed on 9/11, but I didn't expect that we'd have to negotiate a "truce" with the enemy that purportedly had been vanquished.

Remember how much shit Clinton took for the mistaken bombing of the Chinese Embassy which actually was the result of an intelligence failure?
(referring to the "uranium from Africa" lie)

"I think the intelligence I get is darn good intelligence, and the speeches I have given were backed by good intelligence," Bush said. "And I am absolutely confident today, like I was when I gave the speeches, that Saddam Hussein developed a program of weapons of mass destruction."

Watch the weasels squirm. Try to predict how Rush will twist the facts so he won't have to admit that he's a tool. Is there an ounce of integrity left in the leadership of the Republican party?
Have some more cool-aid America!
All 55 Republican senators say they have never seen the Terri Schiavo political talking-points memo that Democrats say was circulated among Republicans during the floor debate over whether the federal government should intervene to prolong her life.
Now that Mel Martinez’s (R-Fla) office has admitted than one of their staffers created the memo, what do you suppose the chances are that one or more of the 55 Republican Senators is a lying d-bag?
Sen. Mel Martinez said tonight that he passed the anonymous political talking-points memo on the Terri Schiavo situation to Sen. Tom Harkin, doing so after Mr. Harkin had told reporters earlier in the day that his Florida colleague was the source of the memo.
Mr. Martinez, a Republican, said that unbeknownst to him, one of his staffers had produced the memo and it came into his possession. He said the staff member, whom he did not name, has resigned.
He said though, in response to repeated inquiries by The Washington Times, that he did not know he even had the memo or had passed it on until Mr. Harkin told him about it today. Mr. Martinez said he had meant to give Mr. Harkin a document describing Mr. Martinez's bill to prolong Mrs. Schiavo's life while federal courts reviewed her situation.
If you buy this story, the next time someone is caught carrying some contraband, let’s just accept their story that they “didn’t know” what it was or how it came to be in their possession. What are the odds that only one copy of the memo was made and Martinez had it, albeit without his knowledge. What a bunch of schmucks.
