Support Our Retired Veterans


In the latest allegations of poor treatment for veterans, the Pentagon said Thursday it is investigating conditions at a veterans' retirement home in the capital.

A medical team went for an inspection Wednesday after Defense Secretary Robert Gates got a letter from congressional investigators about allegations of a rising death rate and rooms spattered with blood, urine and feces at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington.

Disturbing News


"With the fired lawyers controversy here in the United States showing no signs of abating, President Bush gave an impromptu press conference in the White House's Diplomatic Reception Room. Presumably because the Petulant Tantrum Room was booked." --Jon Stewart






Drip, Drip, Drip


The flap over fired prosecutors is jeopardizing confirmation of President Bush's pick for the No. 3 official at the Justice Department.

The nomination of Bill Mercer, currently the U.S. attorney for Montana, to become associate attorney general has been put on hold by Democrats. They want to question him about his role in the dismissal of several federal prosecutors late last year.



“You know, concerning the firing of Gonzales, you’ve been listening to the Republicans defending the Bush Administration. They keep saying US attorneys serve at the pleasure of the President. Have you heard that expression? Sounds kind of dirty, doesn’t it? They serve ‘at the pleasure of the President.’ What are they, down on all fours, barking like dogs? I don’t know what it means.” - Jay Leno


Republican Shenanigans



BYU Protestors?


Political science professor Darren Hawkins said it's possible the visit of an unpopular vice president in the midst of the Iraq war and in the wake of the Scooter Libby trial might even spark a protest by BYU students, a rarity on the conservative campus.

 "He may be the most unpopular vice president in history and he may be the most unpopular person in America right now, so, yes, where else could he go?" Hawkins said. "It doesn't surprise me the White House called back and wondered if BYU would take him. I seriously doubt he'd be welcome at a lot of other universities."



“According to a new study, one-third of Washington, DC is illiterate. Unfortunately, it’s the third that’s in charge of the government. That’s the sad part.” - Jay Leno

"The Democrats are trying to turn these firings of U.S. attorneys into a partisan issue, but the president is above bickering. In fact, he made a generous peace offering. Karl Rove and Harriet Miers would submit to private interviews, but 'they would not take oaths nor would a transcript be made available.' See, the president is just trying to save this country from another painful perjury trial." --Stephen Colbert

Abu Ghraib


The former commander of Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq said Thursday she distrusts the confession purported 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed made after the high-ranking al-Qaida official spent a month at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Janis Karpinski, who was reduced in rank from general to colonel in the wake of the interrogation scandal at the Iraqi prison, said she had "no faith" in Mohammed's confession to the planning of 28 acts of terrorism, including the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center and a foiled plot to crash aircraft into London's Heathrow Airport.

"I would think people who go from being held in a secret prison for five years, who end up at Guantanamo and then suddenly confess, that should raise concerns," Karpinski said.
