Bush In Action

Is this true? Is Bush a bigger fraud even than he appears to be in public?

The same journal presents an article pointing out that with this Administration's history of parading falsified documents as "proof" of their assertions, we shouldn't be too fast to accept the so-called intelligence documents supposedly found in that abandoned office.

Other documents "found" by the paper's reporters "revealed" Russian intelligence had passed intercepts of Tony Blair's phone conversations to Iraqi intelligence, that German intelligence offered to assist Iraqi intelligence in the lead up to the war, that France provided Iraq with the contents of US-French diplomatic exchanges, and that anti-war and anti-Bush Labor Party Member of Parliament George Galloway had solicited hundreds of thousands of dollars from Iraq, which were skimmed from the country's oil-for-food program.
It certainly is...interesting that the only people targeted by these papers are the ones publicly identified as foes of Bush's war, doesn't it?

And, speaking of targeting foes, civil rights are under assault again. (Well, not 'again'. More like 'still'.)

The Bush administration and leading Senate Republicans sought today to give the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon far-reaching new powers to demand personal and financial records on people in the United States as part of foreign intelligence and terrorism operations, officials said.

. . .

There was some disagreement over exactly how the provision originated. Several Senate aides active in the debate said that Senator Roberts had included it in the authorization bill. But a senior Congressional official said the Bush administration had initiated the proposal and that Senator Roberts had not objected.

A C.I.A. official said the provision had come from the Bush administration, after the White House's Office of Management and Budget signed off on it.

This is one of those times when even if the intent had been good, it's the wrong action to take.

Do you suppose Enron did anything that wasn't criminal? (Always remember and never forget that the press obediently dropped any and all references to Bush's near-incestuous relationship with Enron after the scandal started to break.)

Also, when your state starts cutting services and laying off employees and no one answers the phone when you call with a question, do not put the blame in the wrong place, okay?
