We've got a situation that needs correcting, that's killed thousands, that's cost billions a month, and Rumsfeld is talking shit like a goddamn Fox news talking head. What they've been doing is not working, but maybe a few more political speeches will fix things.
Nursultan Nazarbayev, Stalinist autocrat of Kazakhstan, is to visit America, and to share many prostitutes with the Bush family at White House and the componund at Kennebunkport. He is no doubt here to head off the Borat movie, and to share with us the true face of our Kazak friends, who are willing to share their oil with us, as long as it's not the small amount used to boil defamers of the Nursultan.
Here, Borat responds to the anger from his land directed at that Jew who makes him say those things:
I was worried about freinds in New Orleans. That Sunday night last year, I was looking around for news and found this forcast from the National Weather Service for New Orleans, except it was in all caps, so it was extra pants-soiling: “Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks, perhaps longer. … At least one-half of well-constructed homes will have roof and wall failure. All gabled roofs will fail, leaving those homes severely damaged or destroyed. … Power outages will last for weeks. … Water shortages will make human suffering incredible by modern standards.”
So, I find a video from the mainstream of the question that took them so long to ask (see below), and I become the most popular kid in school. Or, at least, my YouTube channel is the 16th most viewed today. But, I have to confess, I originally downloaded it from Crooks and Liars. So go there for all the clips of the crooks and etc.
I grew up with the expectation that there may be nuclear war with the USSR. Now we're peeing our pants because somebody might blow up a plane.
Yeah, that would be bad and they should stop the fuckers before they do it. But...
The Cold-war is just one of many threats we've faced that exceed the danger posed to America from Osama bin Laden by orders of magnitude. We also survived Hitler, Imperial Japan, the Kaiser, a Civil War, and the British Empire--the latter one twice by the way--just to name a few.
In that historical context, reading or hearing a bunch of yelping GOP crybabies incessantly screeching in craven horror that Al Qaeda is the worst, gosh-darn biggest bad-ass threat we've ever faced is, frankly, an act that has grown tired and embarrassing. And when they yammer, time and time again, that it's not enough for them to be quivering under their beds, they insist the entire country crawl under there and obsess along with them, while they lay in fetal position swaddled in their faded George Bush security blanket squawking in fear, it's enough to make Burt the Turtle duck and cover in disgust.
Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.
Suspicion of wrongdoing ran so deep that the 10-member commission, in a secret meeting at the end of its tenure in summer 2004, debated referring the matter to the Justice Department for criminal investigation, according to several commission sources. Staff members and some commissioners thought that e-mails and other evidence provided enough probable cause to believe that military and aviation officials violated the law by making false statements to Congress and to the commission, hoping to hide the bungled response to the hijackings, these sources said.
"The real story is actually better than the one we told," a NORAD general admitted to 9/11-commission staffers when confronted with evidence from the tapes that contradicted his original testimony. And so it seems.
No, no proof that the Bush administration set the whole thing up. But it is proof that, surprise, they and the DOD fumbled and bungled that day, and then lied about it.
