Ex - CIA Agent Says WMD Intelligence Ignored

Howie still doesn't believe it. He still thinks that we haven't yet found WMDs, or that they were spirited away in the middle of the night -- to Syria.

Poor Howie. And his type.

The CIA had evidence Iraq possessed no weapons of mass destruction six months before the 2003 U.S.-led invasion but was ignored by a White House intent on ousting Saddam Hussein, a former senior CIA official said according to CBS.

...The source "told us that there were no active weapons of mass destruction programs,'' (former CIA operative Tyler) Drumheller said in a CBS interview to be aired on Sunday on the network's news magazine, "60 Minutes.''

"The (White House) group that was dealing with preparation for the Iraq war came back and said they were no longer interested,'' he was quoted as saying in interview excerpts released by CBS on Friday.

"We said: 'Well, what about the intel?' And they said: 'Well, this isn't about intel anymore. This is about regime change','' added Drumheller, whose CIA operation was assigned the task of debriefing the Iraqi official.

Unbelievable what the Right has allowed this country to become. Howie,

Kill the Messenger, Part IV

McClellan is Gonzo.

No surprise here. More whitewashing. And while I have little sympathy for McClellan (paid LIAR!!!), it is hard not to see him as the most recent in an expanding line of scape-goats.

America : It's Time For a Change

According to Gallup, 70% of Americans disapprove of the job the GOP-controlled Congress is doing. 71% are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the United States. Only 36% approve of Bush's Presidency.

65% disapprove of the President's policies in Iraq. 57% of Americans expect the US to be unable to win the war in Iraq. For the first time, more Americans disapprove than approve of Bush's handling of terrorism (50%-44%).

Even Neil Young has moved from "let's roll" to "let's impeach the President."

So let's do something about it!!!

"...You Have to Down Planes, You Have to Sink Ships, You Have to be Prepared to Attack Anything that is Within Your Reach..."

Are we, or are we not, fighting a "war on terror?"

Why is the United States of America refusing to bring a terrorist who is in our possession to justice? The handling of the case of Luis Posada Carriles makes a mockery of both the Bush administration and the news media's creation and propaganda of this so-called "war on terror."

One of Posada's acomplices, Orlando Bosch, pardoned by the first Bush regime in 1991, was interviewed last week by a Miami television reporter. Here is an example of the thoughts of one of OUR terrorists (the emphases, however, are mine):
Juan Manuel Cao (interviewer): In that action 76 persons were killed (the correct figure is 73, including a pregnant passenger)?
Orlando Bosch: No chico, in a war such as us cubans who love liberty wage against the tyrant, you have to down planes, you have to sink ships, you have to be prepared to attack anything that is within your reach.
Is this what Americans are dying in Iraq for? Is this what we are preparing for war with Iran for? Ask yourself, how in the world can we support terrorists and claim to be waging a war on terror?
Juan Manuel Cao: If you ran into the family members who were killed in that plane, wouldn't you think it difficult . . . ?
Orlando Bosch: No, because in the end those who were there had to know that they were cooperating with the tyranny in Cuba.
Yes, this guy was pardoned by George Herbert Walker Bush, former President, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. His accomplice, Posada, may very likely be pardoned by George W. Bush at the end of his term.

I love America. But THIS is not America.
