Paul Bremer’s caucus plan "fast becoming impossible to defend with a public that is finding its voice and wants to express its will directly.” Has the CPA had any plans that proved successful yet? Commentary Opinion: The US Secretary of State has no credibility. “Powell's ‘evidence’ and ‘facts’ have proved to be not only ‘assertions’ and ‘conjecture’, but erroneous ones at that. But one year, one war, no UN resolution and thousands of deaths later, we are still waiting for someone to pay the price for a conflict that never needed to start and sparked a resistance that shows no sign of ending. Fatal blunders like these, it seems, are priceless. The politicians who authorised the war say they were tricked. The intelligence agencies who provided the material to justify it say they were pressured or misinterpreted. The leaders who used that material to make their case for it say they were misinformed or misunderstood. And the military, of course, just follows orders. No one takes responsibility, no one has yet been held accountable.” Our own “president” refuses to accept responsibility, so why should Powell? Casualty Reports Local story: Ohio soldier killed in Iraq. Local story: Washington State soldier killed in Iraq. 86-43-04. Pass it on.
