They Promised

They deliver.

The road to Damascus.

You didn't really think they'd just go away quietly, did you?

March, 2004

Even before the U.S. occupation forces settled into Saddam Hussein's palaces in Baghdad, the neoconservatives who have set the direction of the Bush presidency's radical foreign and military policies were looking toward Syria.

October, 2008

US military helicopters have carried out a raid inside Syria along the Iraqi border, killing eight people including four children, Syrian officials say.

[...]

Its timing is curious, coming right at the end of the Bush administration's period of office and at a moment when many of America's European allies - like Britain and France - are trying to broaden their ties with Damascus, our correspondent adds.

  BBC

Not curious at all. The neocons will not be denied their agenda. Will not. Barack Obama’s “hope” is a false one for his believers. Until the American people rise up, the neocon agenda will continue, and the entire world will suffer. And the American people will not rise up. We will not get off this road in my lifetime, nor any of my readers’.

They Lied?!

ACLU attorney Jameel Jaffer …who directs the ACLU's National Security Project, said ABC's report, based on a forthcoming book by NSA expert James Bamford, undercuts the Bush administration's arguments that its so-called Terrorist Surveillance Program was narrowly targeted and did not intercept innocent communications. He said the revelations that NSA operatives listened to members [of the] International Committee of the Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders bolster the ACLU's legal challenges to the surveillance program on behalf of other aid organizations like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, whose members also believe they were spied on.

Ooops

Throughout Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign, the Republican nominee has wrapped himself in the mantle of U.S. Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, proclaiming himself the leading advocate of the former commanding general in Iraq who devised last year’s controversial troop surge. Yet during a talk Wednesday about Iraq at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative Washington policy organization, Petraeus repeatedly made statements that bolstered the foreign-policy proposals of Sen. Barack Obama, McCain’s Democratic rival, or cut against McCain’s own lines.

Message from Hugo Chavez

"If the Venezuelan government, for example, approves a law to protect consumers, they say, 'Take notice, Chavez is a tyrant!'" Chavez said in one of his recent weekly television shows.

"Or they say, 'Chavez is regulating prices. He is violating the laws of the marketplace.' How many times have they criticized me for nationalizing the phone company? They say, 'The state shouldn't get involved in that.' But now they don't criticize Bush for having nationalized . . . the biggest banks in the world.

Comrade Bush, how are you?"

Town Hall

What I'm wondering is what crawled up Tom Brokaw's butt and died. The "debate" is about what you would expect between an intelligent man and a GOP pimp. But Tom keeps harping about the abuse of the time limit by the candidates. Interestingly, each time he does it, he does it immediately after Obama speaks. And also interestingly, he often says, "Thank you very much, Senator," after McCain speaks (and sometimes chuckling at his lame jokes), and has not yet once said it to Obama. Is there something I don't know about Tom Brokaw?

Bailout! (Excuse me .... Rescue)

Lehman Brothers steered millions to executives while simultaneously asking Congress for bailout money. You're surprised, I know.

And be sure to note the name "George H Walker" in that article.
