Hartford Courant, CT -8-2-03
By Josh Meyer, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

WASHINGTON -- The 27 classified pages of a congressional report about Sept. 11 depict a Saudi government that not only provided significant money and aid to the suicide hijackers but also allowed potentially hundreds of millions of dollars to flow to Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups through suspect charities and other fronts, according to sources familiar with the document....

Bush should let U.S. in on secret: Did Saudis help terrorists?
By Ruben Navarrette Dallas Morning News  8-2-03

DALLAS -- It is often said that the Bush administration obsesses over secrecy, distrusts the press and takes lightly the American public's right to know.
Now where would anyone get that idea? ...

Gee, what a surprise!  The Saudi Ruling Family are close friends with the Bush Ruling Family -- and this is how the Saudis treat their friends? Or is this just another bad judgment call by a Bush?

Bush called 'President Shrub' in government memo
By GRAEME SMITH Globe and Mail - Canada

Winnipeg — Saskatchewan's government has tried everything to get the U.S. border opened to its beef: pleading, cajoling and even threatening a ban on foreign beef....Americans might not have a great sense of humour after a recent series of insults from prominent Canadians.

Françoise Ducros, a former aide to the Prime Minister, made international headlines by calling Mr. Bush a "moron." Natural Resources Minister Herb Dhaliwal called Mr. Bush a failed statesman. MP Carolyn Parrish was quoted as saying: "Damn Americans, I hate those bastards."...

The only North Americans left that like this administration is the Unrighteous Right.  Mission Accomplished.


Saddam's Sons Buried;

 US Soldier Killed
Guardian, UK - 8-2-03

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Leaders of Saddam Hussein's tribe buried the ousted dictator's elder sons, Odai and Qusai, and a grandson Saturday, their bodies wrapped in Iraqi flags in a sign the family considered them to be martyrs.

Also Saturday, the military said a U.S. soldier was killed and three were wounded in a rocket-propelled grenade attack on their convoy east of Baghdad on Friday.

The Arab satellite television broadcaster Al-Jazeera reported that another U.S. soldier also died Saturday morning in an attack north of the capital, but the military had no details on the incident.

The Bushes versus Bill Clinton

Tax cuts, not war, send deficit soaring
Florida Today, FL - 8-2-03
The report Thursday that the nation's economy grew at the fastest pace in nearly a year might indicate it's recovering from a two-year slump. But even if the future bears that out, there's a gorilla in the living room.

The Amazing Disappearing Tax Revenue
Washington Post - Jul 25, 2003

The exploding federal budget deficit has triggered fierce recriminations among politicians over who is to blame, but in Washington's less-partisan budget circles, the White House's projected $455 billion deficit for 2003 has underscored a growing mystery: Where has all the tax revenue gone?

"No one knows," said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, the director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. "Not answering the question is just admitting our ignorance."

"You know, let me let me talk about al Qaeda just for a second. I -- I made the statement that we're
dismantling senior management, and we are. Our people have done a really good job of hauling in
a lot of the key operators: Khalid Sheik Mohammed, Abu Zubaydah, Ramzi ahh -- Ramzi al Shibh,
or whatever the guy's name was."

He really is too stupid to be president.  By the way, have you been there lately?

Politics takes a break
Straits Times, Singapore - 8-2-03

LONDON - Having waged war together, it was only to be expected that the American and British leaders should take a break and go on vacation at the same time.

In what appeared as an almost synchronised double-act, President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair held their last press conferences this week, repeated the same tired explanations for the still-absent Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, then cheerfully departed for their summer holidays...
