Bush Titanic Failure


By Cliff Kincaid

June 9, 2007


It looks like Al Gore did win the 2000 presidential election after all.

With most of the media attention focused on the collapse of the Bush-backed Senate immigration bill, the American people are not being told the complete story of how the President sold out American interests at the G-8 meeting in Germany. Assuming legislative powers that properly belong to Congress under the U.S. Constitution, Bush committed the U.S. to drastically reducing CO2 emissions. It’s unclear whether these reductions will be accomplished through increased regulations or higher taxes. But the document agreed to by Bush specifically refers to “fees or taxes” as an option. Bush, once known as a tax-cutter, apparently now wants to go down in history as a tax-raiser for the cause of arresting climate change.

Libby Gets Scootered

Treason against the United States of America is now worth only 30 months in prison. Sad but true. This sordid story has roots that are now several years old and has been so misrepresented by factions on the right that the truth becomes muddied. The simple facts are these. After Ambassador Joe Wilson was sent to Niger to investigate claims that Saddam Hussein was trying to obtain nuclear weapons materials (yellowcake) he returned to assure the Office of the Vice President (who sent him); that there was no truth to the claim. What should have been greeted as good news was ignored and the president of the United States went on to lie in a State of the Union address that the claims had validity. Wilson was compelled to clarify in an op-ed news piece several months later and in an act of pure political retribution, the secret identity of his covert CIA operative wife was leaked to the press. A republican-appointed prosecutor was assigned to investigate and in doing so, interviewed Lewis Libby under oath. Libby, the Chief of Staff for the Vice President, then proceeded to lie on purpose under oath; known as perjury, in a clear attempt to obstruct justice. Today he was sentenced for that crime. Justice on some level was served.

The cries on the right for I. Lewis Libby have been beyond hypocritical; they have been obscene. Libby had letters of support, requesting leniency, from Rumsfeld, Feith, Kissinger, and Wolfowitz. A similar letter came from General Peter Pace; the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which is beyond unseemly. Tuesday night in the GOP presidential debate we saw more of the GOP double standard, as most would support a presidential pardon. One candidate stated that the punishment was “extreme” and another stated that the prosecutor was somehow improper for even questioning Libby. The resounding cry of “there was no crime” was heard again from the gang of nine.

Let us be clear; there was a crime. Valerie Plame was a NOC. That means she served her country in the most dangerous of fashions. Had she ever been caught in the field she would have been killed and our government would have denied knowing her. She had a double life that she had spent over 20 years building in the defense of her country. Specifically, she protected us from the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; the very issue at the heart of the “war on terror.” The revelation of her secret identity was TREASON against this country. The republican prosecutor was trying to investigate when Mr. Libby decided to lie to him, ruining his investigation potentially. Perjury is a crime. Obstruction of Justice is a crime. The notion that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, who oversees all of our young men and women dying in the field, would write a letter requesting leniency for a man who tried to obstruct justice in a case dealing with the outing of a covert CIA operative responsible for preventing WMD is beyond disgusting.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Joseph Lieberman said Sunday the United States should consider a military strike against Iran because of Tehran’s involvement in Iraq.

“I think we’ve got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq,” Lieberman said. “And to me, that would include a strike over the border into Iran, where we have good evidence that they have a base at which they are training these people coming back into Iraq to kill our soldiers.”

LONDON, June 7 — Investigators have confirmed the existence of clandestine C.I.A. prisons in Romania and Poland housing leading members of Al Qaeda, contends a new report from the Council of Europe, the European human rights monitoring agency.

Dick Marty, the Swiss senator leading the inquiry, said in a recent interview that his conclusions were based on information from intelligence agents on both sides of the Atlantic, including members of the C.I.A. counterterrorism center. The report is to be released on Friday.

The report says the jails operated from 2003 to 2005. “Large numbers of people have been abducted from various locations across the world and transferred to countries where they have been persecuted and where it is known that torture is common practice,” it says.

These suspects included Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the confessed master planner for the Sept. 11 attacks; Ramzi bin al-Shibh, a member of the Hamburg, Germany, cell that organized the conspiracy; and Abu Zubaida, believed to have been a senior figure in Al Qaeda.

Geldof And Bono Blast G8 For Betraying Africa

by- Suzie-Q @ 9:20 AM MST

The G8 summit ended yesterday with world leaders pledging to spend £30 billion on fighting Aids, malaria and tuberculosis and stressing their determination to help Africa.

But anti-poverty campaigners denounced this as a “betrayal” and said the headline figure was “misleading”.

Earlier announcements from President George W Bush account for half of the £30 billion and there is no sign that any new money arose from the summit in Germany.

The G8 has also “watered down” a pledge brokered by Tony Blair at the Gleneagles summit in 2005 to fund “universal access” to anti-Aids drugs, critics said.

As the G8 leaders left the Baltic town of Heiligendamm, Bob Geldof, the anti-poverty campaigner and rock star, called them “creeps” and denounced their work as a “total farce”.

“The richest countries in the world, trillions of dollars swirling around that table, smiling in that stupid tent chair with the candy stripes. Do me a favour: get serious. This wasn’t serious, this was a farce, a total farce,” he said.

Bono, Geldof’s fellow rock star and campaigner, accused the leaders of deliberate “obfuscation” and said the summit’s final declaration masked their failure to reach a consensus on helping Africa.

The pair singled out the Canadian and Italian prime ministers, Stephen Harper and Romano Prodi, for blocking pledges for more aid.

But Mr Blair described the agreement on Africa as “progress”.

The Gleneagles pledge to increase aid by £25 billion by 2010 – with half going to Africa -has been reaffirmed and Britain and America are on course to meet their side of this bargain.

Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, who chaired the summit, said that everything realistically possible had been achieved.

Bush’s Rome visit sparks protests

Rome Riot Police

Pope Benedict expresses concern about “the worrisome situation in Iraq” to the president.

ROME — U.S. President George W. Bush, denounced by tens of thousands of anti-Bush protesters on the streets of Rome, defended his humanitarian record yesterday to Pope Benedict, who expressed concern about “the worrisome situation in Iraq.”

ROME (Reuters) – Demonstrators clashed with police in central Rome on Saturday as U.S. President George W. Bush wound up a visit to Pope Benedict and Italian leaders.

Hours after Bush had discussed Middle East peace with Pope Benedict and was wrapping up meetings with Italian politicians, police in riot gear charged and fired tear gas at demonstrators who had thrown bottles at them in Rome’s historic centre.

Was General Pace Fired Because He Balked at Iran

This isn’t good news.


I’ve been writing for over a year now that the Joint Chiefs have been blocking the White House’s efforts to expand the war to Iran. No matter what you might think of Gen. Pete Pace, this really is TERRIFYING news, unless you crave a wider war in the Persian Gulf and South Asia.

Pace has been the most visible symbol of the push-back within the military against the Long War.

George W. Bush, in effect, just fired the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Peter Pace, USMC. This is unprecedented, as it is the first time the JCS Chair has not been reappointed.

Pace’s replacement will be Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Michael Mullen, if the Senate approves his nomination.

The Admiral appears to be a much more convinced true-believer than Pace. Mullen was quoted in an address earlier this month to naval personnel: http://starbulletin.com/

“The enemy now is basically evil and fundamentally hates everything we are — the democratic principles for which we stand … This war is going to go on for a long time. It’s a generational war.”

Read that again. Mullen says he thinks we’re in a Long War with Evil. Who does that sound like? Click the link above and take a look at Admiral Mullen. That man, if confirmed by the Senate, will have all of our lives in his hands. Is he the man you want to have that responsibility? You do have a say in that – let your Senator know what you think.
