TODAY'S HEADLINES 6/26/2003
6/26/03 On Withdrawing from the State
6/26/03 "THEY DON'T STEAL ALL OF OUR CHICKENS" They don’t take all of our crops. They don’t steal all of our chickens. They always leave us enough to live on.
6/26/03 Right-wing rabbis are mobilizing against the international roadmap for peace which aims at a Palestinian state on what they say is part of Eretz Israel, the land the Bible says was given by God to the Jews. The only problem is that the Bible gave that land to the children of Abraham, which INCLUDES the Christians and the Muslims, who had not yet split off into separate identities at the time the old testament was written. In any event, in an age of space flight, computers, genetic engineering and nuclear power, I think we should have outgrown whacking each other on the head over whose mythological hallucination has the bigger gonads.
6/26/03 US TV networks 'kissed ass', says Wolff Michael Wolff, the media commentator and New York Magazine columnist, has accused American television networks of "kissing ass" in their coverage of the Iraq war in return for a relaxation of media ownership rules in the US.
6/26/03 Case Closed "Rachel who?"
6/26/03 THE CASTOR BEANS OF MASS DESTRUCTION!!!! This latest effort to save Bush from his lies is exceeded in stupidity only by the mainstream media that reported it without question. NBC is reporting that a "stash" of castor beans has been uncovered in Iraq that "proves" Iraq was going to manufacture the poison Ricin. Never mind that castor beans are used for a lot of purposes, including motor oil, medicines, soap, and paints. Never mind that Ricin makes a poor WMD because it must be ingested or delivered subcutaneously to work. The scope of this latest hoax betrays just how desperate Bush (and the media who continues to bow down before him) has become. And with this latest story, I believe we can safely conclude that the President, and the mainstream media, are definitely full of beans!
6/26/03 The House has voted to award the Congressional Gold Medal to British Prime Minister Tony Blair. More proof that Congress is complicit in the lies that started a war; the same House of Representatives that just voted to block further inquiry into Bush's lies sends a costly bauble to fellow liar Phony Tony Blair to make up for the inconvenience the DubyaMDs have caused.
6/26/03 The Naked Airport Scanner returns! I have an idea. Let's stop screwing around other people's countries and the terrorists will go home.
6/26/03 Report stirs fears of privacy violations A report from the Terrorism Information Awareness program contains a major loophole that allows the government to data mine "everything under the sun" including medical and credit records, says the top Senate Democrat on privacy issues.
The votes for the various banners used at this site were fairly evenly split all around, so in fairness to the artists who sent banners in I added a script to randomly select a banner for each page load.
6/26/03 Undermining Blix Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy secretary of defense, was so eager to see the United States launch a preemptive strike against Iraq in early 2002, that he ordered the CIA to investigate the past work of Hans Blix, the chief United Nations weapons inspector, who in February 2002, was asked to lead a team of U.N. weapons inspectors into Iraq to search for weapons of mass destruction, in an attempt to undermine the scientist.
6/26/03 The Invisible The human cost of the 21st century's first war is already enormous. In addition to those who have died, staggering numbers have been detained around the world in violation of their human rights and international law. Paul Vallely investigates their fate, and asks whether this suspension of due process in the name of defending democracy can ever be justified
6/26/03 WHouse dismisses State Dept. review of Iraq trailers "Anyone who doesn't agree with is us a commie fag junkie anti-Semitic neo-maxi zoom dweebie!"
6/26/03 Canada still expects to balance books Ah, to have a fiscally responsible government!
6/26/03 Veil of Secrecy Around Village Hit in U.S. Raid On a desolate panorama of hardtack desert along the Syrian border here, the United States military has cordoned off part of this village, evicted five families whose houses were bombed six days ago and refused to say what is going on. (Are they burying more gas centrifuge parts under rose bushes?)
6/26/03 Expect more casualties, warns Rumsfeld It's not like it's going to be anyone he knows personally.
6/26/03 Iraq oil to sail to U.S. ChevronTexaco gets contract for crude Admit it, you're not surprised, are you?
6/26/03 Teachers get preliminary OK to carry weapons But guns were banned from cockpits only a couple months before 9-11.
6/26/03 On tomorrow's menu: cloned steaks, and diners none the wiser In theory the plan is to find the animal that produces the tastiest and healthiest meat and make copies. The reality is that experimental cloned animals have DNA transcription errors and sicken and die prematurely. So, that clone-steak means you are eating a piece of a sick animal.
6/26/03 Sign was a joke -- but jail wasn't Choate ran afoul of a new Sacramento city ordinance that prohibits people in parades from carrying dangerous items or wearing a gas mask or other "filters" over the face.
6/26/03 Pay no attention to Orwell, he was totally mad, don't you know! It's only a coincidence that our government looks and acts just like his! And anyone who thinks otherwise is double-plus-ungood!
6/26/03 US Senate leader says weapons of mass destruction not main cause of Iraq war Translation: Okay, we got caught lying. It's not like the slaves can actually do anything about it.
6/26/03 Bush's bogus war All governments shade the truth. Most resort to deception when the going gets tough. Saddam Hussein is gone and so is his regime. So who cares if George W. Bush fiddled with the facts on Iraq's banned-weapons programs and its reported links to al-Qaeda? I care. The Bush administration's dissembling about the invasion of Iraq and its self-delusion about the consequences are directly related to the disturbing events now unfolding there. All of us are likely to feel the effects as a confused, angry superpower grows ill at ease with its self-appointed role.
6/26/03 U.N. Panel Reports No al-Qaida-Iraq Ties Another lie exposed
6/26/03 Agency Disputes C.I.A. View of Trailers as Iraqi Weapons Labs The State Department concludes those trailers are NOT part of a bioweapons lab.
6/26/03 Reuters: State Dept. Unit Challenges Iraq Trailer Story The mainstream media is only about a month behind the internet on this story.
6/26/03 Nestled In the Loving Armpit of Uncle Sam What I find most appalling are those comments that still favor the American invasion even in the aftermath of the revelation that Bush lied to justify the conquest.
6/26/03 Government Promulgates the Wackiest Conspiracy Theories The most bizarre conspiracy theories to date have coincidentally been the latest ones advanced by the same looneybin rejects that have hijacked our government.
6/26/03 US plans for Iraq 'flawed' Aside from grabbing those oil wells, there really wasn't any plan at all.
6/26/03 Escape from Microsoft Office In the old Soviet Union, anyone who bought a typewriter was required to type a sample document to give to the police so that documents typed on that machine could be identified in the future. Microsoft has gone one better, with secret codes in all office documents that allow them to be traced back to the source. Now, MS wants to legally own your documents for you.
6/26/03 Everyone knows now, for sure, that something is very, very wrong. Speak now, or pay the biggest price
6/26/03 Congress Must Impeach George W. Bush For WMD Fraud And of Congress won't do it, then We The People must impeach the government.
6/26/03 BBC hits back in Iraq row I knew Campbell was making a mistake when he tried to blame the BBC for the Iraq WMD debacle.
6/26/03 Cool! Spy on your kids! Of course, this gizmo will be the FIRST thing that gets thrown away by whatever mental defect grabs your kid. It's like those Lojac systems that were popular for a while, until it was shown that they did not actually deter car thieves.
6/26/03 Saudi Student ‘Missing’ After FBI Arrest Being "disappeared" comes to America.
6/26/03 Weapons inspector: «Powell bluffed the UN» I must be smarter than the UN because Powell sure as hell didn't fool me.
6/26/03 The memory Hole picks up on the video of George Bush doing nothing after being told of the second plane impact. This is longer, including previously unseen footage.
6/26/03 Israel's attack on the USS Liberty At the AFEI conference for Net Centric Operations 2003 on Wednesday, April 16, 2003 at Tysons Corner in Vienna, VA, Honorable John Stenbit, Assistant Secretary for Defense C3I, indicated that the Israelis made a very clear threat that if the US did not move the USS Liberty within 24 hours, they would sink it. His exact quote was: "The Israeli's told us 24 hours before that we had a ship called the Liberty, and if we didn't move it they would sink it. Unfortunately, the ship was not moved and by the time the message arrived the ship was taking on water." The agenda for the meeting can be found at http://www.afei.org/brochure/3af3/ .
6/26/03 Very Richest's Share of Income Grew Even Bigger, Data Show While YOU get stuck with the payments on the largest government debt in history.
6/26/03 Bangladesh may accord official recognition to the Jewish state of Israel in exchange for certain trade concessions from the United States. Wouldn't it be nice if the government of the United States was as worried about the people of America as it is about the people of Israel?
6/26/03 Where Are WMDs? Where's Congress? The longer Congress refuses to act, the more guilty they appear.
6/26/03 WE DON'T CARE The clueless one checks in.
6/26/03 The House on Thursday rejected two attempts by Democratic lawmakers for additional inquiries into the handling of intelligence on Iraq's weapons programs. Note the spin. It's "Democrats" who want the inquiries, but it's the "house" ( as opposed to the GOP members of the house) that blocked them. There you have it. Congress is a willing participant in the lies that stared a war. When it is time for the hangings, take along extra rope.
6/26/03 Iraqi Oil Pipeline Ablaze After 3rd Blast in 4 Days Oddly enough, that Haifa pipeline seems immune to these attacks.
6/26/03 On a lie Where does it stop? Revelation after revelation of how a predesigned “framework” was laid down by the highest officials in Washington, and how all those below were made to tailor their work to that “framework,” keeps surfacing in the exhaustive post-Iraq war analysis.
6/26/03 How George W. Bush Won the 2004 Presidential Election Purging voter lists is just the beginning: the U.S. has embraced a form of electronic voting that is unreliable, unverifiable and funded by the radical Christian right. (ES&S has a long history of voting "irregularities").
6/26/03 Byron York hoists on his own petard. Tries to use the fragments of junk found under a rosebush to dismiss charges that Bush lied about WMDs.
6/26/03 Read the last paragraph.
6/26/03 PROTEST BUSH AT BURLINGAME
6/25/03 Flashback: Atomic agency challenges Bush's key claim against Iraq As long as we are on the issue of leftover parts being claimed to be proof of WMDs, I felt a reminder of the prior reliability of the claims made by the Bush administration was in order.
Here is an idea for a new TV show. From the producers of "Junkyard Wars", comes "Junkyard Weapons of Mass Destruction" in which government officials are given a box of old rusty parts and must build a convincing Iraqi weapon of mass destruction before the end of the show!
6/25/03 Campbell tries to pin the blame on the BBC. Sure. Go ahead. Piss off the media.
6/25/03 Syria protests against US strike Yeah, if the US invaded my country and shot up a bunch of my people, I would object too.
6/25/03 The fountains of lightning that rise in the sky A reminder that there are still amazing things left to be discovered in this world.
6/25/03 Distorted Intelligence? Hundreds of pages of confidential German law-enforcement records raise new questions about the Bush administration’s core evidence purporting to show solid links between Osama bin Laden’s terror network and Saddam Hussein’s regime.
6/25/03 Where is Saddam? Could he be in Hawaii? I THOUGHT the gardener looked familiar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay folks. Pay attention. This...
... is what the US Government says is a gas centrifuge used for processing nuclear fuel for reactors and warheads. It was found buried under a rosebush in Iraq, supposedly for 12 years.
Is an actual complete gas centrifuge facility in the United States, covering 750 acres. Doesn't look like something you could actually bury under a rose bush, does it?
There is a good reason for the size.
It takes HUNDREDS of gas centrifuges, shown above, to produce even miniscule amounts of uranium 235. Facilities for producing uranium 235 for power reactors or weapons are therefore huge. A single gas centrifuge is useless except for laboratory experiments involving microscopic amounts of materials.

The ones arriving here have a subject line "Application" and an attachment called "your_details.zip". Opening the attachment will install the virus. See http://firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
6/25/03 Pathetic attempt by CNN to keep selling the threat of Iraqi WMDs with some 12 year-old bits and pieces. Saying these few parts make a WMD is like finding a couple screws and deciding that this is evidence of a car.
6/25/03 Campbell's dossier denials
6/25/03 Columbia investigators concentrate on issues in NASA culture that may improve shuttle safety IF YOU KNOW THERE IS A PROBLEM, CHECK IT OUT!!!!!
6/25/03 BUSH MUST RECTIFY PEARL HARBOR SMEAR Bush will never admit that Pearl Harbor was started with a hoax by FDR, because that will cast even more doubt on 9-11.
6/25/03 Pressure grows on California governor Recall will likely be on the ballot., And there is an important lesson here. Kicking out rulers who do NOT do their proper job is the correct and natural thing for a free people to do. Certainly, lying to the public to start a war is NOT the President's job. And like Davis, Bush (and everyone who helped him lie) need to get the boot.
6/25/03 Pill 'may raise average life expectancy by 45 years' That ought to complicate the population problem.
6/25/03 US durable goods orders decline in May The slide continues
6/25/03 Peru heading for crisis as cabinet resigns By Mark Mulligan in Santiago Kicking out governments is becoming a fashion trend.
6/25/03 Man Who Sold Fake IDs to 9/11 Hijackers Allegedly Had Wider Terror Ties Once more we see confirmation that the 9-11 hijackers were using fake IDs, with identities stolen from Arab men. Therefore, once again it is proven that we do NOT know who committed 9-11, only who it was to be blamed on.
6/25/03 FBI Removes Counterintelligence Chief The FBI has abruptly reassigned the longtime head of its counterintelligence program in Los Angeles, the first local fallout from the espionage scandal involving a former agent and his Chinese American informant.
6/25/03 Expert Said to Tell Legislators He Was Pressed to Distort Some Evidence A top State Department expert on chemical and biological weapons told Congressional committees in closed-door hearings last week that he had been pressed to tailor his analysis on Iraq and other matters to conform with the Bush administration's views, several Congressional officials said today.
Now, ask yourself if the Bush administration was pressuring other intelligence agencies to "tailor" their results in other recent events? Ask yourself if this is the reason that the FBI is investigating everyone in the Anthrax letters case EXCEPT the one man actually caught entering the lab where the Anthrax was kept. Ask yourself if this is the reason that the evidence linking arrested Israeli spies to 9-11 has been classified by the US Government. The above admission may have leaked out, but what else is being discussed behind those closed congressional doors that We The People are not being told? DEMAND OPEN HEARINGS! The lies of a President must not be protected by closed doors.
6/25/03 Veteran neo-con advisor moves on Iran Michael A Ledeen, resident scholar in the Freedom Chair at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he works closely with the better-known former chairman of the Defense Policy Board, Richard Perle, has been a fixture of Washington's neo-conservative community for more than 20 years. But he is now out front, in a public campaign for the United States to confront Iran, warning that Tehran will cause Washington problems in both Iraq and Afghanistan and that "the mullahs are determined to obliterate Israel".
6/25/03 Incredible Shrinking WMDs Bush's story about Iraq's WMDs reminds me of the old TV series "Get Smart" and the gag where Maxwell Smart would scale back his claims until he found something that worked. (In a Don Adams voice) "Would you believe that right now at this very minute Saddam Hussein has nuclear warheads poised to strike us just 45 minutes from now!" "No, I would not believe that. " "No? Well, would you believe he's got ten thousand gallons of Anthrax held by terrorist cells already in this country?" "No, I wouldn't believe that either." "Oh. Well, would you believe he's got a couple pounds of really dirty laundry hidden in his closet?"
6/25/03 Eying lies It's not that the Bush administration couldn't handle the truth; it's that they didn't want to. That's called lying, and it is the behavior that got both Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton impeached on much less weighty issues.
6/25/03 Wolfowitz to be responsible for tribunals Gee, think those tribunals will have a certain "bias"?
6/25/03 Malayasia Advocating Switch To Euro Nobody likes the dollar, or the country it comes from, any more.
The word is "lie". Not "credibility problem". Not "accuracy impairment". Not "intelligence of uncertain value". "Lie". Stop using those pussyfooting euphemisms and tell it like it is. Bush LIED. Cheney LIED. Powell LIED. Rice LIED. Rumsfeld LIED. Perle LIED. Wolfowitz LIED. Using any other word but "LIE" is just another attempt to minimize what has happened. The administration lied. All these people listed and many more all conspired, and yes that is the appropriate word, to lie to the American people and the world to initiate a war of conquest in which your children were killed or will come home with radiation poisoning. And they are getting ready to do it again in Iran and the ONLY thing that will stop them is if we stop mincing words, call them what they are, LIARS, and working from the fact that the Constitution does not explicitly authorize the government to lie to the people, we FIRE THE LIARS AND KICK THEM OUT OF OUR CAPITOL CITY.
6/25/03 Why the Real Name Is `Osama Bin London' Osama Bin Laden, is in fact a creation of U.S. and British intelligence services operating under the doctrine of Zbigniew Brzezinski, and his Trilateral Commission underling Samuel Huntington's theory of the "Clash of Civilizations."

6/25/03 Gibson's Jesus Pic Faces More Anti-Semitism Charges The ADL has apparently not learned any lessons from the $10 million court judgment against them for the LAST time they smeared someone as "anti-Semitic."
6/25/03 Hamas, Islamic Jihad Agree to Truce Sharon will never sit still for this.
6/25/03 Terror groups sign truce document - Palestinians Now all Sharon has to do is find a way to break it and blame someone else for it.
6/25/03 Israeli gunships launch new attack Wow! That was FAST, Ariel!
6/25/03 Choppers target car in Gaza
6/25/03 Ashcroft's secrecy I would say that a government that wants total secrecy for themselves while destroying the privacy rights of it's citizens is a totalitarian regime not an American government that follows the law of the land as spelled out in the constitution, without the strict adherence to the constitution there is no difference between the US and any other totalitarian country!
6/25/03 WMD, FCC & Tina There’s a reason big media has given Bush a pass on weapons of mass destruction, but it has to do with a Powell other than Colin.
The only way to get the media to tell the truth is to make them more afraid of the people than of the FCC. What do they most fear losing? MONEY! How do you attack the money? CALL THE COMPANIES THAT ADVERTISE ON THE NETWORKS THAT LIE AND STATE FLAT OUT YOU WILL NEVER BUY ANY PRODUCT ADVERTISED ON ANY NETWORK THAT COVERS-UP FOR A LYING GOVERNMENT.
6/25/03 STILL No Arabs On Flight 77
6/25/03 Americans naive to believe propaganda about Iraq Actually, the word "stupid" seems more appropriate.
6/25/03 We can live with that
6/25/03 Injustice for all At trial, the state made a big point of having found a copy of the Declaration of Independence taped to the inside wall of the converted bus that served as the family's home...that this was evidence of the parents being antigovernment.
6/25/03 The Grand Deception - Part One
6/25/03 The Grand Deception - Part Two
6/25/03 Electronic Adolescent Watching Fox News is like watching an electronic adolescent that has appointed itself the strident, belligerent defender of the Bush administration and its foreign policy.
6/25/03 Patriots, don't let bully Bush slide on no-WMD war Those who remain silent on the lies used to start a war are cowards. Only those who speak out can be called brave.
6/24/03 Europe Takes Bite At Bush
6/24/03 Sudan hands over documents to Greek envoy to prove explosive company exists Sudan on Tuesday handed over documents to prove the existence of a company that imported hundreds of tons of explosives in a ship seized by Greece for suspected terrorist links.
6/24/03 Flashback: Iraq And Weapons Of Mass Destruction: Tony Blair's Statement To The House Of Commons 26,000 liters (at 3.78 liters to one US gal =6,878 US gal) Now where do you suppose they hid almost 6900 gals of anthrax spores.
6/24/03 Distortion of evidence WHY DOES NOBODY HAVE THE COURAGE TO SAY THE WORDS, "THE PRESIDENT LIED TO THE PEOPLE!"
6/24/03 'Al Qaeda Itself Does Not Exist' Remember the Al Qaeda cell in Palestine that turned out to be a Mossad front? What of ALL the Al Qaeda cells are Mossad fronts? Including the one that did 9-11?

6/24/03 Greenpeace Says "Frightening" Radioactivity in Iraqi Villages The spin is that the radiation is from looted nuclear materials, but this obscures the facts that the US has showered tons of depleted uranium all over Iraq both in Desert Storm 1 and the more recent war for the oil.
6/24/03 Jewish Immigration to Israel falls sharply More proof that Ariel Sharon's Israel does NOT represent the world's Jewish people.
6/24/03 Bush: 'Matter of Time' for Osama, Saddam Right after we find those WMDs! Honest!

6/24/03 The LaGuardia Incident
6/24/03 Hard times ahead for U.S. Army Two trenchant quotations were repeated through Army corridors of the Pentagon last week--one by an enlisted infantryman enduring hardships of occupation duty in Iraq and the other by a four-star general leaving the service after 38 years. Each was clearly unhappy with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Taken together, their comments signaled hard times ahead for the U.S. Army.
6/24/03 Saddam’s Secrets The scientists were supposed to hold the key to Iraq’s WMD. They still insist the weapons were destroyed
6/24/03 Blix: 'Weapons may not exist' Chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix has said that Iraq left unanswered many questions about its unconventional weapons but this did not mean such dangerous arms still existed.
6/24/03 Poll: Majority Backs Use of Force in Iran Sample confined to Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Perle, Wolfowitz, PNAC, and AIPAC members. There is no way this poll reflects real American opinion. I haven't met a single person around here that backs any more use of force anywhere.
6/24/03 Missing weapons do matter Again, the claimed poll in this article is totally at odds with the result obtained by talking to those around me.
6/24/03 Mayor's Office Attacked in Iraqi City Iraqi casualty may have been innocent bystander
6/24/03 Blix criticizes U.S. accusation on Iraq's weapons Chief U.N. inspector Hans Blix criticized the United States for insisting so vehemently that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction and not producing the evidence.
6/24/03 Will today’s Pinocchio culture become the norm? When I began teaching at Duke, I was pleased to find that the university had an honor code exhorting students to promise they wouldn’t “lie, cheat or steal” in their academic endeavors. But now I regard the pledge as a quaint artifact. How can young people take seriously such a vow when everywhere they look they see successful grown-ups getting ahead by playing fast and loose with the truth?
6/24/03 Cheney raises money, and some ire More than 70 protesters yelled and jeered at Vice President Dick Cheney yesterday as he drove through town en route to a campaign fund-raiser at the home of Richard Egan, founder of Hopkinton-based EMC Corp. and the US ambassador to Ireland.
6/24/03 Under-fire Blair sees rating with voters plummet Now you know why the US media polls cannot be assumed accurate. An entire nation of people does NOT approve of being lied to, and will NOT support liars in high office. It is an insult to Americans to try to pretend otherwise.
6/24/03 U.S., British Forces Under Fire in Iraq U.S. and British forces came under fire in Iraq on Tuesday, as security around the country's vital oil pipelines was beefed up after several explosions blamed on sabotage

6/24/03 Secret wars We're in another Vietnam, so why not another Operation PHOENIX, right?
6/24/03 Bush Talks Terror War, Raises $4M in NYC The terror war is just a cover. Bush's real campaign platform is a kickback scheme, as in, "If you give me a few million, I'll cut your taxes even more so you get back three times as much!"
6/24/03 Meacher attacks US motives in Iraq Sacked environment minister Michael Meacher has joined the growing chorus of skepticism over Saddam Hussein's weapons programme, saying that the US president, George Bush, invaded Iraq because the US wanted a "political and military platform in the Middle East". Mr. Meacher, who left the government after six years service in the prime minister's reshuffle last week, told the Times in an interview that even if WMD existed, it could not threaten Europe or America. Instead, he claims the war was over "a need for oil and ... support for Israel".
6/24/03 Bringing Down a Tyrant
6/24/03 W in war cry at N.Y. bash Raising $4 million for his campaign just miles from Ground Zero, Bush did not explicitly mention the terror attacks - events that aides have insisted he will not politicize in his reelection drive. But other speakers repeatedly invoked Sept. 11, 2001, leaving little doubt that Republicans plan to weave the events of that day and the war on terror into the campaign.
6/24/03 Several thousand anti-Bush protestors show up in New York. Not mentioned much on the mainstream media, which is already busy trying to make you think that everyone around you wants to invade Iran.
6/24/03 Israel sees a threat as hopes rise for ceasefire Israel always sees a threat if peace breaks out. But I am certain there will be a convenient bombing or a missile attack on civilians just in time to derail the ceasefire.
6/24/03 Terrorists possibly targeting Texas "Internet chat cites attack in July; energy facilities on alert." The only way someone about to attack a site in Texas is going to use the internet in this age of total surveillance is to manufacture a false trail to lay the blame somewhere else.
6/24/03 The Meaning of Rachel Corrie
6/24/03 BUSH'S WILLING EXECUTIONERS Today's version of the heroic Nathan Hale would fall to his knees, beg for mercy, and swear fealty to the British crown. A 21st century Patrick Henry would no doubt argue that homeland security trumps personal liberty. Benedict Arnold would make the rounds of the TV talk shows, lauded as an "heroic pragmatist." In a land of wimps, the dimwit is king--such is the dismal state of post-9/11 America.

6/23/03 Bush backtracks on Iraq's banned weapons President George W Bush has retreated from predictions that banned Iraqi weapons would be found, promising only to discover the "true extent" of Saddam Hussein's weapons programmes.
BUSH LIED. CHILDREN DIED. AT THE TIME PRESIDENT BUSH CLAIMED TO HAVE PROOF THAT SADDAM WAS IN VIOLATION OF UN RESOLUTION 1441 HE DID NOT IN FACT HAVE SUCH PROOF. THEREFORE THE CONGRESSIONAL AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE, WHICH REQUIRED SUCH PROOF TO BE ACTIVATED, WAS NOT IN EFFECT AT THE TIME BUSH ORDERED THE INVASION. THE WAR IN IRAQ WAS ILLEGAL, NOT AUTHORIZED BY CONGRESS. BUSH (AND THOSE WHO HELPED HIM LIE) ARE NOT ONLY GUILTY OF IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES, THEY SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO REIMBURSE THE TAXPAYERS FOR THE COSTS OF THE ILLEGAL USE OT THE US MILITARY FOR A PRIVATE LITTLE CONQUEST.

6/23/03 US agents provocateurs up the ante in Iran. Note how the same US that is shooting protestors in Iraq "hails" the Iranian protests as a "cry for freedom" (i.e.. they are going to use the "liberate" excuse for the invasion).
6/23/03 Loose Cannons Great collection of quotes about what is really going on.
6/23/03 Slaughtergate "...there was a concerted effort during the fall of 2001 starting immediately after 9/11 to pin 9/11 and the terrorism problem on Saddam Hussein. ... Well, it came from the White House, it came from people around the White House. It came from all over. I got a call on 9/11. I was on CNN, and I got a call at my home saying, "You got to say this is connected. This is state-sponsored terrorism. This has to be connected to Saddam Hussein." I said, "But-I'm willing to say it but what's your evidence?" And I never got any evidence. And these were people who had-Middle East think tanks and people like this and it was a lot of pressure to connect this and there were a lot of assumptions made. But I never personally saw the evidence and didn't talk to anybody who had the evidence to make that connection." Mr. Russert, predictably, did not follow up on this astounding claim. . . . The import of these statements, however, is clear. General Clark was asked by the White House . . . to connect Saddam Hussein and Iraq to the attacks of September 11. . . . Millions of Americans believed in a connection that was completely and totally wrong. The Bush administration put forth a staggering array of lies and exaggerations, and the American media chose to repeat them ad nauseam instead of verifying the veracity of the claims.
6/23/03 "Okay, so we can't find Iraq's WMDs, but Saddam COULD have helped terrorists, and Saddam COULD have helped 9-11...." ... and Saddam COULD have flapped his arms and flown to the moon. Why would Saddam, who was many bad things but not crazy, do something like 9-11 knowing it would bring the wrath of the US down on him? Isn't it more likely that a third party did 9-11 and blamed it on Arab Muslims, to bring the wrath of the US (who has fallen for the same trick previously) down on the Arab world?
6/23/03 USA: WMD `evidence' investigated Washington has alternated between making public assurances that weapons of mass destruction will be found, and statements that there may have been “intelligence failures”. (Because nobody just wants to come out and say the boss LIED!)

6/23/03 Afghanistan, Now Godforsaken US's campaign in Afghanistan obviously ended in a failure
6/23/03 What the President Knew 'America is pursuing future oil supplies with extreme vigor, so it is difficult, when you look at Iraq, which has the second biggest oil reserves in the world, not to think it was a factor. My view is that we went to war because America wanted to establish a political and military platform in the Middle East. It saw a need for oil, and of course it wished to support Israel.
6/23/03 Up Is Down, Black Is White, But Blood's Still Red I am angry, indeed stupefied, at how the President continues to lie, how easily the American people continue to swallow those lies, and how the Democrats fail to challenge them.

6/23/03 A Fate Sealed Under Secrecy
6/23/03 The FCC's Strange Non-Profit This is starting to emerge as a gigantic kickback scheme. Here is what appears to be going on. Michael Powell, head of the FCC (and Colin Powell's son) sits on the board of directors for the Telecommunications Development Fund. The Telecommunications Development Fund gets its money from interest on deposits paid by large telecommunications companies that bid for licenses in spectrum auctions. The Telecommunications Development Fund spends as much of its money on executive salaries as it does to help telecom start-ups.
6/23/03 Time to get tough If the timetable for peace in the Middle East is allowed to slip, we should consider imposing economic sanctions and suspending arms deals with Israel, says Jenny Tonge

6/23/03 Dollar-euro-oil equation What would happen to the US economy if OPEC decides to use euro, instead of dollar, to price oil?
6/23/03 America Is Not What It Was The global disapproval of George Bush Junior may have to do with the Bush's ‘Union Bank’ past, whose profits derived, ultimately, from laundering Thysson Industrial War Profits which were, in part derived from Nazi slave / death camp labor. Prescott Bush (George Bush Senior's father) received a massive payoff from German clients shortly after WW2 ended, and used the money to go into politics, and so began the Bush dynasty.
6/23/03 The Best Show in Town Well, they'll say, that's done to Arabs. They don't do this to Jews. Wrong. They certainly do this to Jews. Depends who the Jews are. I, for example, am a Jew. I have been attacked with tear gas five times so far. Once it was a special gas, and for a few moments I was afraid that I was going to choke to death.

6/23/03 Iraqis curse 'silver bullet,' fear illness from radioactive contamination It isn't just the "silver bullets" (APFSDS anti-tank shells). The rounds used in the A-10 are also DU as are many smaller anti-tank munitions. And it isn't just the Iraqis who feel the effects. As reported in Australia (and still denied in the US) the soldiers are all coming home with various forms of radiation sickness. The families of soldiers who served in Desert Storm 1 are showing a higher incidence of birth defects than the general population.
6/23/03 Flashback May 2003: US supplied anthrax to Iraq United States Senate documents obtained from Washington by the badger provide evidence of a sinister link between the United States government and the regime of the fallen Iraqi dictator.
6/23/03 The Money Magnet The president will waltz into Manhattan today for another $2,000-a-plate fund-raiser, the latest stop on his fabulously successful dining-for-dollars tour. These are fun events at which the fat cats throw millions of dollars at the president to reinforce their already impenetrable ring of influence around the national government.
Forget about getting the President to see your "Fire the liar" signs. Target the DONORS. Let them know you hold them as accessories to the lies. Threaten boycotts of their corporations. Make and post list of the names of those who paid for the lies that killed out children.
