    The American Thinker ^ | 5/14/06 | Clarice Feldman
    While the media focuses on handwritten notations by the Vice President on a newspaper article, there is much more to be gleaned from late Friday’s court filings in the Libby case. The spin says that damaging new evidence has surfaced. But the filings by Fitzgerald reveal how rapidly his case is sinking. Discovery in legal cases is rather like playing the old game “Battleship” where you can surmise from your opponent’s responses to your blind probes where he is hiding his fleet. So you can sink it. Scooter Libby’s legal team is playing the game masterfully and as the latest...
  • Bush Didn't Mislead on War, Adviser Says (Hadley Hits Back)

    Bush Didn't Mislead on War, Adviser Says By DOUGLASS K. DANIEL, Associated Press Writer Sun Nov 13,10:16 PM ET WASHINGTON - While admitting "we were wrong" about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, President Bush's national security adviser on Sunday rejected assertions that the president manipulated intelligence and misled the American people. ADVERTISEMENT Bush relied on the collective judgment of the intelligence community when he determined that Iraq's Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, national security adviser Stephen Hadley said. "Turns out, we were wrong," Hadley told "Late Edition" on CNN. "But I think the point that needs to be...
  • ZOT: U.K. Thinktank Report Confirms High Risk For Terrorism In U.K. As A Result Of The War On Iraq

    07/19/2005 12:21:00 AM PDT · by Pat The Postman · 12 replies · 413+ views
    It has been known for some time now that residents of the United Kingdom have gradually come to the opinion that participating in the War On Iraq had led to a higher risk for terrorist attacks in their home country. An official report (the first of a series) from the Chatham House think tank confirms these fears. I make no secret of the fact that I always was a firm opponent of that war, and I myself see in the present report the reflection of one of the dreadful consequences of that invasion. Your comments please.

    I have no idea if this has been posted earlier, made some searches and found nothing. I hope you guys will find it as funny as I do. I am a senior citizen. During the Clinton Administration I had an extremely good and well paying job. I took numerous vacations and had several vacation homes. Since President Bush took office, I have watched my entire life change for the worse. I lost my job. I lost my two sons in that terrible Iraqi War. I lost my homes. I lost my health insurance. As a matter of fact I lost...

    LA Times ^ | January 6, 2005 | Max Boot:
    During World War II, Frank Capra made a series of films called "Why We Fight" to rally Americans behind the war effort. Imagine a filmmaker doing that today. Actually, it's impossible to imagine. Hollywood either prefers to stay away from the war on terrorism altogether (the film version of Tom Clancy's "The Sum of All Fears" changed the villains from Islamist extremists to neo-Nazis) or to use it, even in its pre-9/11 form, as a morality play to warn against lost civil liberties (see "The Siege," starring Denzel Washington). The film community — whose exquisite sensibilities are routinely outraged by...

    Reuters ^ | Wed Dec 1 | Luke Baker and Mussab al-Khairalla
    Iraq's president said on Wednesday that elections should go ahead next month as planned, distancing himself from other leading Sunni Arab politicians who are demanding the polls be postponed due to widespread unrest. Ghazi al-Yawar, a Sunni businessman and tribal elder who was appointed to the largely symbolic post of president in June, is the first prominent Sunni to reject calls for a delay. "We must go ahead with elections, from a legal and a moral point of view," Yawar told a news conference in Baghdad. Iraq's interim constitution, endorsed by the United Nations, says elections must be held by...

    "John Kerry today contradicted the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission, the Senate Intelligence Report and the Butler Report in denying that contacts existed between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda. John Kerry has said in the past that Saddam Hussein supported terrorists and called him a 'grave danger.' Now, he is trying to claim that the removal of Saddam Hussein has left the world 'less secure.' John Kerry's incoherence on the security issues facing our country calls into question his ability to lead our nation in the War on Terror." - Steve Schmidt, Bush-Cheney '04 Spokesman The 9/11 Commission: Vice...

    Mulitple tests conducted in Iraq by Danish and British experts indicate that Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction have finally been discovered, but mainstream news editors either ignored the story Sunday morning or are furiously spinning the news as inconsequential. More than 12 hours after the Fox News Channel, Reuters and the Associated Press carried reports that preliminary tests showed Iraqi mortar shells discovered near Basra contain a deadly liquid blister agent, the New York Times had yet to report the bombshell find on the main page of its Web site – or anywhere in its Sunday morning print edition....

    AGHDAD, Iraq, April 26 — Nissar Hindawi, a leading figure in Iraq's biological warfare program in the 1980's, says the stories and explanations he and other scientists told the United Nations about the extent of Iraq's efforts to produce poisons and germ weapons "were all lies."Dr. Hindawi, imprisoned during the final weeks of Saddam Hussein's rule, is now free to talk about his experiences in the program, in which he says he was forced to work from 1986 to 1989 and again sporadically until the mid-1990's. Iraq, as it belatedly acknowledged, he says, "produced huge quantities" of liquid anthrax and...

    How much have poor Franco-American relations affected sales of French wine in the United States? With some wine drinkers and politicians boycotting Bordeaux and Burgundy ever since France opposed war in Iraq, anecdotal reports from individual retailers, restaurateurs and wine producers indicated that French wines were taking a hit. Finally, some hard numbers are now available. According to data provided by Information Resources Inc., which tracks retail purchases in the United States, sales of French table wine were indeed off in late February and March. French wine sales have declined over the past year, but the recent drop is more...

    We were not lying," a Bush administration official told ABC News. "But it was just a matter of emphasis." The official was referring to the way the administration hyped the threat that Saddam Hussein posed to the United States. According to the ABC report, the real reason for the war was that the administration "wanted to make a statement." And why Iraq? "Officials acknowledge that Saddam had all the requirements to make him, from their standpoint, the perfect target." A British newspaper, The Independent, reports that "intelligence agencies on both sides of the Atlantic were furious that briefings they gave...
