The Question:

Should the 9/11 suspects go on trial in New York?

Quotes and Comments:

  • “What the Obama administration is telling us loud and clear is that both in substance and reality the war on terror from their point of view is over,” Mr. Giuliani said on “Fox News Sunday.” “This seems to be an overconcern with the rights of terrorists and a lack of concern for the rights of the public.”

Why is Mr Giuliani so worried?

    Bush: “That is a do-over that I can’t do”

    Posted by msrb on December 2, 2008

    Lying about his plan to invade Iraq even before taking office, Bush says flawed Iraq intelligence is his biggest regret!

    • Number Of Iraqis Slaughtered In US War And Occupation Of Iraq: “1,284,105
    • [Officially acknowledged] Number of U.S. Military Personnel Condemned to Death by GWB In U.S. War And Occupation Of Iraq: 4,206

    George W Bush: The worst psychopath not behind bars


    [This is how much I care about the world!] U.S. President George W. Bush gestures in a conversation with Pastor Rick Warren during the Saddleback Civil Forum on Global Health during World AIDS day in Washington December 1, 2008. REUTERS/Jason Reed (UNITED STATES). Image may be subject to copyright.

    Lying through his teeth, as usual, George W. Bush told ABC “World News” that “The biggest regret of all the presidency has to have been the intelligence failure in Iraq,” that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, and  that “he was unprepared for war when he took office.”

    “I think I was unprepared for war. In other words, I didn’t campaign and say, ‘Please vote for me, I’ll be able to handle an attack’,” Bush said. “I didn’t anticipate war.”

    Why didn’t you pull the troops out of Iraq, once it was common knowledge that the intelligence was phony?

    That would have compromised his principles, he said. “It was a tough call, particularly, since a lot of people were advising for me to get out of Iraq, or pull back in Iraq.”

    [There are about 164,000 U.S. troops in Iraq and at least 32,000 in Afghanistan, and probably twice as many contractors as the number of troops in each country.]

    Obsessed with Obama’s McWhitehouse?

    Posted by msrb on November 22, 2008

    Submitted by a reader

    At McWhiteHouse you’ll get the same stuff every time!

    mc-whithouse

    What’s this hullabaloo about Obama’s obsession with selecting Clintonites?

    Just exactly what did you expect to get at McWhiteHouse?

    A friend of mine often quotes the following about our two-party political system:

    “It’s just like the mafia, you can call the Democrats the Genoveses and the Republicans the Gambinos. They all treat it like it’s one big craps game, and while they might shoot each other once in a while, any time the whole game is threatened they circle the wagons to protect it.” ~ Michael Ruppert in “America: Freedom to Fascism”

    What’s this hullabaloo about Obama’s obsession with selecting Clintonites? What did you expect to come out of the White House?

    Walk to any major fast food chain outlet and you’ll get almost exactly the same stuff you got the last time.

    The manager and staff at your nearest McDonald’s burger joint change regularly, for example, but a Big Mac is a Big Mac; it would taste like the one you got there the last time.

    McDonald’s logos and insignia are registered trade marks of the burger joint chain.

    Obama’s Credibility

    Posted by terres on November 12, 2008

    submitted by a reader

    Obama’s ‘street cred’ is way down in the negative territory, before he even starts the job!

    Let’s stop beating about the Bush, AND have him indicted!

    Obama’s ‘street cred’ is way down in the negative territory, in spite of being elected as the next US President. Some writers have gone as far as insulting the President-elect by calling him a shabbes goy because of his appointment of Rahm Israel Emanuel and other ‘Likudnik hawks,’ and his pledge of unconditional allegiance to Israel in a speech at the AIPAC conference during his ‘one-horse’ presidential election race.

    There’s no easy way to wash off the stigma, if at all. However, the President-elect might find it hard to carry any degree of public trust during his term. And in a fast-changing world there are no guarantees. There’s always the possibility that he may not even finish his presidential term.

    Could Obama buy some credibility?

    Perhaps. Ironically Barack Obama may be able to earn some credibility by doing nothing! That is by doing nothing to stop the war criminal George Bush, Dick Cheney and the rest of their gang being prosecuted for waging wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq and for committing the crime of genocide and crimes against humanity in the two countries.

    And that includes holding back the presidential pardon for those war criminals.

    The Obama Test

    Here’s a test of Obama presidency, or the “Obama ‘Hope and Change’ Test.”

    1. If within the first few months of Mr Obama’s term as President, Bush, Cheney and their gang have been successfully indicted for their war crimes,

    AND

    2. If by then President Obama does nothing to block the justice, including granting presidential pardons to the said war criminals,

    Then, and only then, can citizens be assured that there is still some hope [sic] that the system could undergo a positive change!

    Call Bush the ‘sacrificial lamb,’ if you like, but he must not be granted a presidential pardon!
