seventy-two percent

from zogby: An overwhelming majority of 72% of American troops serving in Iraq think the U.S. should exit the country within the next year, and nearly one in four say the troops should leave immediately...

from msn: John Zogby, president of Zogby International, said US commanders in Iraq unofficially gave approval for the poll of 944 respondents to take place. It took place before last week's bombing of the Golden Mosque in Samarra. Although Mr Bush has acknowledged that Iraq played no role in September 11, 85 per cent of the troops said the US mission was mainly "to retaliate for Saddam's role in the 9/11 attacks".

what, me worry?

from abc news: "And there's no -- look, these are -- there are people that don't want to see democracy, and the reason why is because it defeats their vision of a totalitarian type government from which they can launch either attacks on America or future instability in the Middle East. You're witnessing this ideological struggle that's taking place..."

the 21st century enabling act clears final hurdle...

from ap news: Months overdue in a midterm election year, the USA Patriot Act renewal cleared a final hurdle in the Senate Tuesday on its way to President Bush's desk... Others still plan to vote against the bill as a whole, but they stand little chance of blocking it. Led by Sens. Russell Feingold, D-Wis., and Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., they contend that the months of haggling produced few meaningful curbs on government power.

garofalo: inside job

from total 411/911truthaction/revere radio network:

Today, 2/23/06 at 7:39 pm EST, XM SAT radio channel 167, Air America Radio, The Majority Report, co-host Janeane Garofalo said, "9/11 was an inside job!! I have come to this conclusion about that."

I think all Air America phone-in callers should open by saying, "9/11 was an inside job. We can all agree on that.", then get on with their specific question or comment. We should re-condition the listening audience to accept the Truth about 9/11 as the gospel. Repetition, to inspire research....

he ain't hitler... he's hirohito

from katy mcky on raw story:

Teddy Roosevelt said, "The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants...Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth...Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile."

Emperor Bush doesn't understand this. Like Emperor Hirohito, he is distracted from his designated service by his dreams of empire. And his base still believes that Bush knows best-by his birth.

Hundreds of security-vetted BBC staff and a select band of unnamed radio artistes were to be clandestinely dispatched to transmission sites across the country...to broadcast a national service that the Government hoped would create "a diversion to relieve strain and stress".

"democracies die in darkness"

From MySA: The greatest threat to democracy is not terrorism but secrecy, said Bob Woodward... Although a massive attack is still possible, the nation faces a greater threat from the government's secrecy...
