Transcripts reveal effort to suppress atrocities by U.S.
By ELIZABETH BECKER
… A transcript of this 1969 telephone conversation, with its uncanny echoes of the Iraq war and the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison, at least in the fact of the photographs, if not in the severity of the wrongdoing, was released Wednesday by the National Archives as part of 20,000 pages of records of Kissinger's telephone conversations. The documents cover the years from the beginning of his service in 1969 until August 1974, when Nixon resigned…

US dismisses report on human-rights abuses
Nixon is still rearing his ugly head through this administration.
"If Bush really wants to prove what a great job he's doing over there, he should just walk around Baghdad shouting, 'You're welcome everyone.'" —Craig Kilborn
"So far, the opinions are split on the President's plan. The Republicans say the outlook is Sunni, the Democrats say we're in deep Shiite. So I don't know." Jay Leno

Thanx for the site, Lisa, and
hello from NE Ohio.
You may have heard that Buxh and his entourage made an "official" visit here Tuesday at Youngstown State University.
This is a traditionally Democratic region with a LOT of unemployed steel workers and union members.
With that in mind see this link to read our local newspaper's curbside account of what happened when Rush's Raiders caught wind that there would be dissenters on hand:
I fear that this could be "A long, hot, summer" (Global warming aside). I feel blame can be directly assessed to the AM radio attack dogs by using words such as traitors to describe anyone opposed to the Buxh admin.
Also here's a pic I took of a local miscreant's handiwork. The dumpster is located at the entrance to a very upscale development. I can only imagine the reaction of some of the residents as they head out to spend their tax cuts !
Great photo Johnny! Thank you. It would make a great t-shirt!

Little boy Bush has lost some sleep
and awakened cranky and mean.
Leave him a loan, he'll cease to moan
and he'll fall back into his dream.

Just wanted to share a few random thoughts with you this week.
1. You've got to love the irony regarding the location of Bush's
speech on Monday: the U.S. Army War College. Isn't it painfully
obvious that Dubya flunked out a long time ago?
2. The first (of three) mispronunciation of the Iraqi prison came out
as "Abooga" <pause> "Rape." How much you want to bet this was his idea
of a joke, and what he calls the place when he's among friends in the
3. Tuesday morning, Bush was droning on to reports, saying "A free
Iraq blah blah blah. A free Iraq yadda yadda yadda." He's so bored
with it he can't even put any conviction into his lies anymore.
4. As this season of "The Sopranos" winds to a close, it's been kind
of surreal to watch an episode, then switch over to the news. Bush and
company are like the mob: they circle the wagons like the family and
whack anyone that gets in their way.
Keep the faith,
#1: The irony of it all
#2 I can visualize Cheney and President Nicknamer yukking it up.
#3 I guess with over 800 Americans dead and 4500 wounded has just lost that thrill for President Testosterone.
#4 I cannot envision Bush as a godfather--but I do envision him as a goombah.
Thank you for writing Doug.

"In his speech, Bush announced he has a five-point strategy for getting out of Iraq. I jotted them down. Five-point strategy for getting out of Iraq. Points six through ten will be handled by the Kerry Administration." David Letterman

The Cassini-Huygens spacecraft returned this image of Saturn on Sunday, May 16, 2004, taken with its imaging science subsystem narrow-angle camera. The image was made using a combination of three filters and was taken at a range of 24.3 million kilometers (15.1 million miles). The view is from 13 degrees below the equator. Enceladus, one of Saturn's 31 known moons, appears near the south pole at the bottom of the image. Cassini is due to arrive at Saturn on June 30, 2004. (NASA /JPL/Space Science Institute)
