Ok, this begins to make sense. JA publishes a quarter million classified documents and imperils lives thereby, but he vindicates GWB on the issue of WMD, therefore Interpol was hunting him down to charge him with not using a fresh condom.

"You want to let him off the hook for theft of classified documents?"

I think that he is providing a valuable service. Someone should go to jail for providing access to the documents

I don't think you can blame him for not keeping secrets that drop in his lap. The people to blame are the ones who supplied the information, or hacked into restricted systems.

One could argue that once the documents left restricted space, they are in the public domain. You can't keep the genie in the bottle once that happens. Anyone who argues you can is on the path to censorship.

To: UCFRoadWarrior so called “conservatives” still want to execute Assange, now?

The conservative movement is becoming corrupted by unending war and is on the verge of becoming outright militarist. So yeah, they still want to execute him.

I never did believe that President Bush or his administration was lying about that.

Neither did I. The dishonesty was in his reason for invading Iraq. It wasn't really about WMD. What it was about is anyone's guess. All I know is that he was not telling the whole story when he addressed the American people with marbles in his mouth. (That's how you know he's lying).

No startling revelation there. The piles of captured docs that the DoD had made publicly available for anyone who would translate them told the tale years ago.
Many thanks and a tip 'o the hat to Mr. jveritas, wherever you are.

Why did Bush roll over and play dead on this. He had the documents.

For some reason, Bush refused to stand up and fight against the media propaganda war to undermine the United States.

Carl Rove was his top advisor. That explains a lot of his bad decisions.

If Assange himself curiously goes missing, that won’t stop the other Assange’s out there from taking his place.

Exactly. Assange may be locked up now, but the idea won't die, and there are enough supporters that people will take his place and most likely one or more of them will succeed in being a lot more underground, decentralized and clever about it, too. And there will be sources that will feed (leak) to them. I don't see this going away when Assange goes away. I predict that it will for a while -- but then will re-emerge in some other, harder-to-prosecute form.

I am finding references to the Democrat visit to Turkey hard to find. While I may be mistaken, I remember a news reoprt on Democrats going and wondering what was up, thinking them duplicitous at the time.

I do find the complaints about US-Turkish relations & negotiations:

I did see this....
This Congressional delegation: “U.S. CONGRESS DELEGATION DUE TO TURKEY
WASHINGTON D.C, Feb 15 (A.A) - A delegation comprised of members of U.S. House of Representatives will visit Turkey in order to develop Turkish- American relations.

The delegation will be headed by Democrat Party deputy Robert Wexler and comprised of Republican Party deputy Kay Granger, Democrat Party deputy Jim Moran, Republican Party deputy Cliff Stearns and Tom Tancredo.

The congress members are expected to meet with President Ahmet Necdet Sezer, Parliament Speaker Omer Izgi, Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit, Foreign Minister Ismail Cem and other high-level officials during their visit between February 16-22.

The U.S. parliamentarians will focus on the fight against terrorism and improvement of bilateral relations, particularly in defense and energy and take up Afghanistan, Turkish-Israeli relations, Iraq, Middle East, Balkans, Central Asia and Caucasus.

The delegation is also foreseen to hold contacts related with the Turkish- U.S. Economic Partnership Commission meeting scheduled to be held in Ankara between February 26-27.”

Also, Fedora has done some heavy lifting on Kerry...

“John Kerry vs. the War on Terror: Candidate Kerry’s Subversive Campaign
Original FReeper research | 11/01/2004 | Fedora

“WASHINGTON — Three congressmen who raised eyebrows during a recent trip to Iraq repeated their assertions that the war drums in Washington are beating too loudly.

On Wednesday, Reps. David Bonior, D-Mich., and Jim McDermott, D-Wash.— who were joined by Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., on the trip — held a press conference to further their argument that the United States should allow more time for international diplomacy rather than rushing off to war.”,2933,64657,00.html

McCain & Lieberman went, early in 2002:

“04 January 2002

Transcript: Press Briefing with Senators Lieberman, McCain in Turkey”

(By the way, Cem has since died)

Murtha was all wrapped up in things Turkish. that one Turkish rich guy, Gulen, lives in Pennsylvania & has Islamic militant organizations there.

Of course, I could just be wrong.

So in his interviews, President Bush says he was really upset about not finding the weapons. Can he defend himself now? I mean, when they find a meth lab, with no meth, but all the parts, and residue, it’s called a meth lab and don’t the owners go to jail?

Assange is no patriot to anyone. He is an admitted anarchist who delights in destruction and chaos and doesn’t care who he hurts, even if it is millions of innocents.

the question is...why, just a few weeks ago in an interview did bush say that he believed there had been WMD but turned out there wasn’t and he and everyone else had been wrong.

I can believe it. It just makes sense, he was a crazy dictator and they’re all the same. I remember when my hubby was in the first Iraq war, he was the on the Independence. I was worried about it. I remembered what sadam had done to the Kurds and figured he wouldn’t waste a minute thinking about doing it to our troops. Thank God he didn’t.
