Tale of Saddam’s capture more fiction
than fact. "'Time' also quotes a U.S. intelligence official as saying some officials suspect the 'President Bush sends his regards' incident is 'apocryphal,' or fictitious." Is there anything the Bushies won't lie about?

forced them to gouge the US Army. Doesn’t the Bush family have extensive oil investments in Kuwait?

More “Support the Troops” hypocrisy
from Rummy. “The Pentagon is considering closing some or all of the more than 50 schools it operates on military bases in the United States — a move that could mean major changes at Fort Campbell and Fort Knox, which have military high schools.” Hey, we all gotta pay for Lieutenant AWOL’s tax cuts!
Bush’s Confederacy of Cons
. “Most analysts have identified three main components to the coalition behind President George W Bush's aggressive foreign policy: right-wing militarists, of whom Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is the exemplar; neo-conservatives, led by former Defense Policy Board (DPB) chairman Richard Perle, whose world view is similar to that of Israel's Likud Party; and Christian Right forces whose leaders are influential with Bush's political guru, Karl Rove.”
Wounded soldiers at Walter Reed
. “In the heart of the ‘Sunni Triangle’, Saddam's capture last week by the Americans has done little to dampen the will to fight among fellow Sunni Muslims, angered by foreign occupation and at losing their once dominant minority position in society.”
tears a piece off Lieutenant AWOL and the Chickenhawk Commandos. "The more he listened to Wolfowitz and other administration officials talk about Iraq, the more Zinni became convinced that interventionist "neoconservative" ideologues were plunging the nation into a war in a part of the world they didn't understand. 'The more I saw, the more I thought that this was the product of the neocons who didn't understand the region and were going to create havoc there. These were dilettantes from Washington think tanks who never had an idea that worked on the ground.'" Read the comments of this Marine officer and former CENTCOM commander, and you'll realize how much trouble these conservative fools have caused for America.
