And that would be people inside the information who are the so-called anonymous sources, or people outside the information — outside the administration." —George W. Bush, Chicago, Sept. 30, 2003


"I am deeply sorry about that and I apologize."

Rove Role in Leak Case Defended
Newsday -10-7-03

In a White House news briefing yesterday, presidential spokesman Scott McClellan responded to questions about Rove's alleged role in the leak by taking pains to distinguish between unauthorized disclosure of classified information and "setting the record straight" on criticism of the administration's handling of intelligence on Iraq....

Hearing "Imagine" as the theme song for Kucinich at the recent Democratic National Committee meeting brought back memories of an excellent October 11, 2001 animation of John Lennon's song:

It still works. The idea of "no religion" is particularly appealing to me as an  atheist.

Welcome back to CROSSFIRE. Time for "Fireback."

TUCKER CARLSON: But first, the answer to a trivia question about the 1990s that we posed a moment ago. And it was, how many special investigations were launched during the Clinton years. Was it five, said 18 percent, seven, said 66 percent, or 10, said 16 percent. It was, in fact, seven. People have great memories. I'm impressed.

JAMES CARVILLE: And all that that produced was, somebody got convicted of receiving illegal football tickets. There were 30 convictions in the Reagan administration, one in the Clinton.

As expected, the ozone hole near Earth's South Pole is back again this year. This year's hole, being slightly larger than North America, is larger than last year but short of the record set on 2000 September 10.  The above picture of the ozone hole was taken on September 11 by TOMS on board the orbiting Earth Probe satellite.
