New Book From Former White House Whore Cuts No Rope

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Winter Patriot

The new tell-all [sic] book from professional liar and former White House mouthpiece Scott McClellan may best be seen as a crass attempt to make a few bucks while trying to avoid responsibility for the war crimes and crimes against humanity in which he so gleefully participated.

But there's still a noose in The Hague with Scottie's name on it, and the real journalists who work for McClatchy have all the details.

The noose with McClellan's name on it is in a room full of nooses -- with the names of all the war criminals who have taken over our government.

And this room may well be the last, best, and only hope for mankind.

It's a shame nothing in it will ever be used.

UPDATES:

I agree with Larisa Alexandrovna when she says (at At-Largely): "Go there and show these few, brave reporters some love. Leave a comment."

Jason Leopold at ConsortiumNews points to a passage in the book which suggests Karl Rove had a hand in the cover-up of the Valerie Plame case. Wow! Wouldn't that be a shock!!

Back at At-Largely, Larisa agrees with Jason's assessment, at least in the broad outlines. And Kathy says there's strong circumstantial evidence suggesting that Bush authorized the leak of Plame's identity.

Wouldn't these all be shocks? Oh come on, now. Seriously. Wouldn't you be just mortified? Imagine how it would look to the people of America!

If it shattered their "faith" in "democracy", might that lead to something positive?

Nuclear Proliferation To A Radical Islamic State? All Part Of The Job For BushCo

Thursday, May 29, 2008

It seems almost impossible that the Bush administration, while threatening to wage war in order to prevent Iran from enriching uranium, could simultaneously give enriched uranium to another radical Islamic country.

Or perhaps I should rephrase that: If it seems impossible, you haven't been paying any attention at all.

But Chris Floyd has been paying close attention all along, and he has the goods on "Uranium Enrichment: The Bushes, The Saudis and The Bomb". It's a long piece, even by Floyd's standards. But it's well worth reading. Follow some of the links, too, for an education you won't soon forget.

Civilized Countries Vote To Ban Cluster Bombs

Thursday, May 29, 2008

All the civilized countries of the world have voted for a ban on cluster bombs. But -- big surprise -- the US was not among them!
More than 100 countries reached agreement Wednesday to ban cluster bombs, controversial weapons that human rights groups deplore but that the United States, which did not join the ban, calls an integral, legitimate part of its arsenal.
Legitimate!
The weapons consist of canisters packed with small bombs, or "bomblets," that spread over a large area when a canister is dropped from a plane or fired from the ground. While the bomblets are designed to explode on impact, they frequently do not. Civilians, particularly children, are often maimed or killed when they pick up unexploded bombs, sometimes years later.
And that's legitimate!

A Pentagon spokesman contributed the usual bullshit:
Navy Cmdr. Bob Mehal, a Pentagon spokesman, [said] "cluster munitions have demonstrated military utility, and their elimination from U.S. stockpiles would put the lives of our soldiers and those of our coalition partners at risk."
Of course it's much better -- and much more legitimate -- to put the lives of innocent civilians at risk, while we wage illegitimate wars with so-called legitimate weapons.

Along with the USA, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, and Israel also refused to sign the agreement.

It is becoming increasingly difficult not to believe that the world would be a better place if all six were reduced to ashes.
