Report slams U.S. for Iraqi civilian deaths
GIs overaggressive, rights group says
Chicago Tribune  10-21-03

...The report, which examined deaths that occurred since President Bush declared the end of major combat in Iraq on May 1, charges that the U.S.-led military coalition is often reluctant to investigate civilian deaths, is not careful enough to prevent them and has failed to provide an accounting of the casualties. The human-rights group alleges that many of the deaths were caused by overly aggressive U.S. military actions...

That phrase made me wonder what Bush's mice are up to and found that Dick Cheney, vice-president is going fundraising in Iowa.  I guess he wouldn't let a little thing like a WAR he is hosting, keep him from fundraising.

I, too, just recently discovered your website and II think it's fantastic! I now read it first thing in the morning with my coffee. Your hard work and efforts are appreciated.
I did want to address the letter from "A Conservative who thinks your webpage is hypocritical": First of all, good for you, it's America and you're entitled to think and say what you want, and to have an opinion .. (*unlike those of us who were opposed to the war and who were labeled "anti-American" by .. CONSERVATIVES) however .. the only thing that I've found hypocritical was *Rush Limbaugh who is known for his anti drug stance regarding drugs.Second, I've not read ANY whining here except for your letter. Let's see who's whining after the next election. Third, if the facts here are * "downright lies," then maybe you should address CNN and FOX, since some of those * "downright lies" that you seem to think that you read here have had links that send one to the source of the story. Speaking of * "downright lies," where ARE those WMD's?? One last thing, Conservative, why does it seem that Conservatives do not have a sense of humor? May I suggest that you lighten up and not take things so seriously? Life is too short.


Thanks for writing and visiting AHNC. 

Right wing conservatives are hate mongers.  It is simple as that, I think.

A bipartisan group of senators introduced legislation last week that would gut major provisions of the Patriot Act, including the "sneak and peek" provision, which allows federal investigators to delay notifying terrorism suspects about search warrants...
