I was listening to Washington Journal this morning, and several Republican callers to guest Democratic Rep Loretta Chavez of Calif denounced Democrats for not speaking up about the ports deal until the Dubai thing went sour.

Will they stop at nothing? The Dems are not in power, they cannot get a bill or resolution through unless the committee chair agrees. Reporters won't cover their concerns unless they consider it news, and the American people simply weren't focused on it until then.

I had heard on numerous occasions that our ports were not up to the new security requirements. Where were these callers? Oh yes, pretending that the Bush Administration actually gave a damn.

hmmm, ok, help me with the nuances..

the GOP killed it since they knew they were caught up in it, eh?

however, potentially some of this is "criminal" ... "high crimes and misdemeanors", no?

does this mean a "get out of jail free" card for each and every one of those snarky criminals?

Two many people were in Jack's pocket so lets not investigate. Even so Dems would be in trouble. Kit thanks for the info now thats interesting to know. Fitz so times people are in to deep to turn around. These elected officials have been living large and don't want to go back to beans/rice. I also noticed that Saddam is to blame for all the trouble in Iraq. That's so nice of the Bush Administration to tell us I wonder how Scotty will spin this one. I love watching his try to lie without his nose growing.

Michael Berg, a veteran anti-war activist and retired schoolteacher who campaigns in jeans and a T-shirt, is the Green Party candidate for the Delaware seat of seven-term Republican Rep. Michael Castle

Venezuelan: Exxon Mobil Not Welcome

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela's oil minister said Wednesday that Exxon Mobil Corp., the world's second-largest integrated oil company, was no longer welcome in this oil-producing nation.
Exxon Mobil has resisted tax increases and contract changes that are part of a policy by President Hugo Chavez's government to "re-nationalize" the oil industry.

The US military plans to detonate a 700 tonne explosive charge in a test called "Divine Strake" that will send a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas, a senior defense official said.

"I don't want to sound glib here but it is the first time in Nevada that you'll see a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas since we stopped testing nuclear weapons," said James Tegnelia, head of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

Re. The 700 lb Explosion

After contaminating half of the Middle East with DU are they now going to contaminate our very own Soddem/Gomorah? I would be very surprised if the bunker buster type weapon was not DU.
