No. 2 comes up short on Iraq casualty count
By Mark Memmott, USA TODAY 4-30-04
WASHINGTON — Vice President Cheney was aware of a meeting held by his staff that started a chain of events that ended with the "effective betrayal of our country," former U.S. diplomat Joseph Wilson charged Thursday in an interview with USA TODAY.
Isn't freedom of speech one of the freedoms our soldiers are fighting for?
The above is an actual quote from Bush...minus "Here use my Bush blindfold."

Do you think their boots will ever be on ANY battlefield?
Just think if George Washington didn't want to "jeopardize his or others' safety by sending a congressman to a war zone."
"[9 11] Panel members said President Bush was very helpful. At one point even offering to have the CIA provide personal information about them and their mistresses." Craig Kilborn

A Strange Encounter with Robert
Late on Tuesday afternoon, July 8, six days before Robert Novak's article about Valerie and me, a friend showed up at my office with a strange and disturbing tale. He had been walking down Pennsylvania Avenue toward my office near the White House when he came upon Novak, who, my friend assumed, was en route to the George Washington University auditorium for the daily taping of CNN's Crossfire. He asked Novak if he could walk a block or two with him, as they were headed in the same direction; Novak acquiesced. Striking up a conversation, my friend, without revealing that he knew me, asked Novak about the uranium controversy. It was a minor problem, Novak replied, and opined that the administration should have dealt with it weeks before. My friend then asked Novak what he thought about me, and Novak answered: "Wilson's an asshole. The CIA sent him. His wife, Valerie, works for the CIA. She's a weapons of mass destruction specialist.

This image, released April 29, 2004, of the Bug Nebula (NGC 6302) taken with the NASA /ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows impressive walls of compressed gas, laced with trailing strands and bubbling outflows. A dark, dusty torus surrounds the inner nebula (seen at the upper right). At the heart of the turmoil is one of the hottest stars known. Despite a sizzling temperature of at least 250,000 degrees C, the star itself has never been seen, as it is hidden by the blanket of dust and shines most brightly in the ultraviolet, making it hard to observe.(HO/ESA/NASA and Albert Zijlstra)
