I just read that article and now I think our government is much more screwed up than anyone can possibly realize. Makes me wonder why in the world would these people sacrifice our National security to maintain power. Talk about getting your priorities straight! Come on! The GOP has to go for our own safety!

Excellent work, Larissa & Raw Story staff. Well, we know the Repubs. in power are liars, criminals and incompetents. Nothing is really new. The Repubs. in power make ALL Repubs. throughout America look like fools and evil-doers. When will the desperately needed changes take place???

Further confirmation that any future that democracy has in this country hinges on our ability yank this criminal out of office to stand trial for each and every nefarious deed he has committed.
Down With Bush!

Except for the obvious, that Roberts is playing ball with the White House Repubs, I'm not sure what there is to make of this report. Incidentally, I'm glad to see Rockefeller appears from the report to be one of the White hats.
The behavior of Tenet continues to confuse everyone because he was appointed by Clinton.
The battle of the CIA and the White House is curious in that CIA headquarters is named for it's former chief, George H. W. Bush and the White House boss is George W. Bush. It brings to mind ancient Greek mythology or Freudian psychiatry.
Mostly it just seems clear that with the Internet the mainstream media can no longer "fail" to report on important national issues to keep the public in the dark. The Internet reporters and bloggers are keeping the real discussion alive. In the days of Kennedy this 'conspiracy' might've been swept under the rug, but it's not so easy today.

In the supposed indictment of Bush & cronies, the articles said that several media moguls were also indicted. Enough said about the MSM. The "watchdogs" for the American citizens.

Maybe 6 or 7 of us should start writing letters? Rockefeller and Weldon, Repub from PA, seem to be good guys...
9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker
'The briefing by the military officer is the second known instance in which people on the commission's staff were told by members of the military team about the secret program, called Able Danger.
The meeting, on July 12, 2004, has not been previously disclosed. That it occurred, and that the officer identified Mr. Atta there, were acknowledged by officials of the commission after the congressman, Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania, provided information about it.
Mr. Weldon has accused the commission of ignoring information that would have forced a rewriting of the history of the Sept. 11 attacks. He has asserted that the Able Danger unit, whose work relied on computer-driven data-mining techniques, sought to call their superiors' attention to Mr. Atta and three other future hijackers in the summer of 2000. Their work, he says, had identified the men as likely members of a Qaeda cell already in the United States.'

So glad I found BradBlog and you all back in Nov. 2004. Now I know how seriously things are beginning to unravel. Problem is, *we* know this, but how to get the message out so that it can't be ignored by the MSCM (main-stream corporate media) and the stressed-out couch potatoes who rely on "news" MSCM, and neo-con radio shows during drive time ? Oh, guess that has to be the Whispering Campaign, recently featured on Democratic Underground

The President is only staying in Iraq because someone has forced his hand, not because of any other reason.
The real reason we are in Iraq is for Israel-Pakistan's benefit to take the oil, we have a serious problem with US security if we pull out, before finishing their mission
This mission isn't about anything else but the oil. The real trouble is, Pakistan will hate us no matter what if we pull out or not unless all americans are out of Iraq and the Israelis get out of Palestine!!!!!
Jack Abramoff, dual-citizen has been indicted for wire fraud and possible spying charges.
Jack Abramoff of the Fellowship/AEI, indicted for fraud, possible spying charges
"Local 10 News has learned that the indictment focuses on the sale itself and alleges that Kidan and Abramoff agreed to put up $23 million for the deal in order to get a loan of $60 million from a lending company. But investigators said the money from Kidan and Abramoff never existed and constitutes fraud.
Months after the contentious sale was finalized, Gus Boulis was killed, gunned down gang-land style in his car. No arrest was ever made but investigators believe that a series of Suncruz checks to a Miami Beach man named Tony Ferarri financed the hit, Local 10 News reporter Rad Berky said.
Abramoff and Kidan are charged with five counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and mail fraud. Each count carries a penalty up to five years in prison and a 250-thousand dollar fine.
Kidan's attorney in Florida says his client would surrender voluntarily to federal authorities in Fort Lauderdale tomorrow."
Abramoff and his other advisors were there on the boat when the hijackers were. Conceivably they also knew Mohammed Atta well. Because Abramoff has lied to everyone the whole time about his background, its quite a shock.
He also staged a huge fraudulent coverup with Amy Elizabeth Ridernour, and senior members of the Council for National Policy. They defrauded casinos, bribed Tom DeLay and many state legislatures.

Thanks for the story. I didn't comment on your blog, because it looked like I'd have to logon, and my current logon abilities have gone the way of Bushco.
However, you can be sure that other BBers who are similarly challenged are nonetheless reading your recent story, and now have a "heads up" to bookmark you for future reference and news.
If you go to WP's site for Whispering Campaign The Whispering Campaign you can email him via "send feedback".

Paul, you are a pathetic ignorant idiot.
Go take your stack of bibles and rue the day you swept in.
'Communists?' This is why you and your far righty crackpots don't deserve to be in government.
You are totally ignorant, totally oblivious to all that is happening around you.
Since when did the fact that Israel-Pakistan has corrupted our congress and senate, paid off officials from both parties, and forced us into wars for oil NOT become news?
And your joke and laughing tirade of bullshit is this is all clinton's fault. Go scuffle down some more of that lemonade butch, this is not all Clinton's fault. This is the fault of the Bush Admin, the Clinton Admin and countless others who have been bribed and CORRUPTED-WHO HAD FULL KNOWING, AND WARNING OF 9/11.
Don't make me laugh...Next time you want to know what's up, Visit this site and read about the Israeli spy networks who were let go, start soaking up the knowledge rather than turning to a false phony belief, that has nothing to do with reality.

The necons chair most of the critical congressional committees.
Until the sane folk in the GOP cast out the neocons they are going to be getting closer and closer to complicity in the many bu$hit admin crimes.
And the recent election in a very heavily republican district, being ever so close in official tallies, should be a signal to them.
The pork in the Hiway bill is not going to save them this time.
The 06 election is going to cost them dearly if the voters associate them with the crime spree.

Part of the problem is that the "Establishment" Democrats are in on it, too. Kerry has covered for Bush in the past, and even Kristol had admitted that Kerry was a safe bet compared to non -neocon Republicans.
I think part of the problem has to do with Kosovo, where we saw the same sort of effort by Blair and Clinton to force a war. Tenet is also a common thread here.
Theirs is a power-sharing agreement... and whenever possible, the media and leadership in both parties try to focus on superficial differences like "style" and "personality." The goal, and this has been quite clear for some time now, is to strip benefits (both employee benefits and government assistance) and squeeze families for as much labor as possible and to prevent common people from building any wealth that can be transferred to the next generation. This is exemplified in the structure of the professional lobbyists in DC, firms often represent both sides of an issue. They take money from both parties, frame and spin the debate in a way that shifts the focus onto superficialities and sound bites, and laugh all the way to the bank.
It's getting harder to vote, to save money, to own anything, or to get a good education. The only thing that has gotten easier is having sex, watching TV, going to jail, or going to one of the fake "churches" that are taking over. This is reflected in the consistently growning gap between rich and poor.
Nobody wants to see fundamental reforms take place except the grassroots folks in both parties... and as long as we focus on superficial differences in style (Democrats are evil lying hippie dixie chick-loving cowards, Republicans are evil racist pea-brained Toby Keith-loving curmudgeons) we will remain stuck in the ruts, unable to talk to each other and unite behind the common cause of reform.

There is NO coincidence with the release of 9/11 film and sound footage on TV at this time. They are determined to tie 9/11 to Iraq.
BushCo will step down to the lowest rung on the ladder!

Comment about dems. being in on the corruption too. My response...was very surprised when I repeated a rumor I read on this site that Kos had taken money from Diebold..I was censored from repeating that rumor on kos and americablog. I had noticed kos only allowed a certain amount of election fraud discussion. Very hurtful when you think you are communicating with progressives....but they are just on the take.

The #1 terrorist / spy organization in the USA continues to operate openly in Washington DC — its called AIPAC.
Who owns & operates the media --- that is why these stories are buried or never pursued. How do you distract from the biggest story since 911 ? You manufacture other stories (such as Cindy Sheehan) to suck up air time. Anytime Michael Moore is involved you should be aware that ZION spinning is going on. They thrive on controlling all sides of an issue.
1. What do the following have in common: Clinton, Condit, Mc Greevy and 4 star general Byrnes ???
2. What do the following have in common: Lewinsky, Levy, and Cippel ???
the answer to #1 is: They were all duped into a MOSSAD honey trap.
the answer to #2 is: They are all MOSSAD agents and all happen to be self identified practicers of judaism. Only 1.9% of the US population identifies themselves as practicing judasim. This is beyond coincidence. What about all the school shooters ??? Thank goodness they removed this COMPROMISED 4 star general from his post. There are still some patriots left in the FBI, CIA, and DIA that have not been deluded / fooled by the ZION lies.
DONT LET THE ZION MEDIA SHILLS / WHORES distract from the reality that the MOSSAD has been trying to deceive our nation into fighting israels enemies for some time — including their complicity in 911. PURGE THE ZION TRAITORS including the scumbags FRANKLIN, ROSEN, and WEISSMAN.
Don’t believe the ZION lies about BUSH. They are attempting to take down another president.
FYI — another ZION shill was indicted yesterday — Abramoff. Looking forward to the next shill indictment of SAYANIM NOVAK.
ZIONISTS are ANTI 1st amendment and ANTI 2nd amendment and they are also ANTI AMERICAN.
Imagine this: In the middle of our 'war on terror,' a foreign government (Israel) has spies who have infiltrated the highest levels of the Department of Defense.
Larry Franklin, Rosen, Weissman and the AXIS of ADL, AIPAC, and ISRAELI TRAITORS / ESPIONAGE — all indicted.
ZIONIST Douglas Feith (the architect of the IRAQ war and the boss of indicted spy Larry Franklin) resigned August 9th, 2005 and has fled the country. This story was also buried.
Who owns the MEDIA, the VOTE COUNTING MACHINES, the MILITARY, the POLITICIANS, the FEDERAL RESERVE ??? Research it to get ENLIGHTENED.
The sudden use of “HOMELAND” instead of “our country” or “our nation” – is word warfare. Why are we not talking about protecting our country or our nation? I’ll tell you why. We are no longer to think of the USA as a sovereign nation – we are to think of ourselves as having a “homeland” in the ZIONIST government. Ironically, "HOMELAND SECURITY" is run by a dual US-ISRAELI citizen named Michael Chertoff.
Those who think this is going to far – have no idea of the heartless, ruthless psycho-warfare propagandists we should be fighting.
Remove these dual citizens from critical posts in the USA government IMMEDIATELY --- such as Michael Chertoff. NO MORE dual loyalties. This is a war --- not pattie cakes with your playground chums.
