"The Practical Matter Is...

he is trying to grandfather in protections for illegal actions already undertaken. No grace, no substance, no intelligence - it is shocking that we have him as our president." - Lisa Simpson

Olbermann: Bush's 'rush' to redefine Geneva Conventions may be mostly about 'covering his own backside'

Matt Lauer: “I don’t want to let this 'within the law issue' slip though. I mean, if, in fact, there was water boarding used with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and for the viewers, that’s basically when you strap someone to a board and you make them feel as if they’re going to drown by putting them underwater, if that was legal and within the law, why couldn’t you do it at Guantanamo? Why did you have to go to a secret location around the world?”

President Bush: “I’m not going to talk about techniques. And, I’m not going explain to the enemy what we’re doing. All I’m telling you is that you’ve asked me whether or not we’re doing things to protect the American people, and I want the American people to know we are doing so.”

What's all the fuss? I would love to use "waterboarding" on Karl and Jack.

Hey Fitz,

Of course this is all about covering his ass. In spite of what Bush says about his being confident of the Republicans retaining both the House and Senate, he is deeply scared of being prosecuted for War Crimes.

I am fan of McCain, but I hope that he, Warner and Powell and Graham continue to stand against Bush.

Good for Olbermann for telling it like it is. of course, the Gerbil is covering his ass. But, whatever agenda that the Gerbil needed to get done, his behavior towards the reporters showed it. His own party is turning on him and his base is falling apart.

"I'd put an agent around just to protect his life..!"

No, GEF! Olbermann is not psychic. He is one of the few journalists are not afraid to speak the truth and put his career on the line to speak the truth about the Administration. Just like the people that signed the Declaration of Independence put their life on the line for all of us to have the freedoms in this country. I wish more people and journalists have the guts to speak out against the President and want a change in this country. As Alexander Hamilton said as paraphrase:

"Most people stand for nothing and fall for everything."

You have to stand for something in this country. Only the few people who separate themselves from the masses who will make a difference in this country. and Olbermann is one of them.

E:

I agree with you with patience.

SBP, I think GEF was referring to an agent for protection-not surveillence?
-------------
McCain, a prisoner of war during the Vietnam conflict, also said a compromise was possible.

"I believe we can sit down, we can work this out, preserve our Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions," he said on ABC.

McCain said the United States must hold the "moral high ground" on this issue. "This has nothing to do with al Qaeda. It has everything to do with America."
___________
Just say NO to compromising Geneva!

T, Biloxi,

Yep, I was talking about protecting Olbermanns life. Once you commit a revolutionary act by telling the truth about the gerbil you tend to dissappear...

The gerbil family is extremely dangerous...as well as Treasonous..

Just ask geronimo's bones...

At this point the founding fathers bones are rotating in high gear at the raw plain sight subversion of all that our country stood for.

Our Founding Fathers knew that Freedom was more important than security...

Somebody tell the gerbil he's done for..

To those Idiots that say that you can't have Freedom if you're dead I say:

This is what our American Founding Fathers fought the Brits about and from 1776 to 1913 we were Free..

T:

His comments were really cleared to me. But, thanks for the clarification.. Alot of people are appauding Olbermann for his guts while others condemn him for speaking on. I believe this will be fight with the GOP for the next two months to try to silence people for speaking out.

As far as McCain, yes he was a prisoner of war, served his country, and has the background and experience to understand torture and the Geneva conventions. But, we shall see if McCain does carry through his high standards of miltary experiences to defy the Gerbil. He, too, is trying to run as President of 2008. And McCain has been flip flop these days with his dealings with the Gerbil.. Wesley Clark and John Murtha have stood their grounds and defied the Gerbil's policies. But, Powell's speaking out and a good sign and turning corner against the Gerbil....

"The gerbil family is extremely dangerous...as well as Treasonous.."

GEF:

Yes, I know that the Gerbil family is dangerous. Just as dangerous as the Gambino family.. The Bush cajones have a huge investment riding in the Gerbil's Presidency.. But, let's not talk about just Olbermann or any jourmalists speaking out. Let's talk about Congress for a moment.

The Gerbil needs Congress to pass his bills and his hidden agenda. Some of them are not going for the Gerbil's agenda. Don't be surprised if their aren't threats to their families and the Senators. So, as you said, the Gerbil family are dangerous. But, they will not let anyone and anything stop them from thier hidden agenda.

BTW, thanks for your clarification.

Here is another journalist who is being attack besides Olbermann:

David Corn Denies Outing Valerie Plame Wilson

Lawyer and pundit Victoria Toensing has gone on the attack, accusing journalist David Corn of being the first to out Valerie Plame Wilson as a covert employee of the CIA. Corn denies it.

Here is Corn's original article from July 16, 2003.

Did senior Bush officials blow to cover of a US intelligence officer working covertly in a field of vital importance to national security--and break the law--in order to strike at a Bush administration critic and intimidate others?
It sure looks that way, if conservative journalist Bob Novak can be trusted.


As to Toensing, with whom Corn says he has been friendly in the past, he writes:

Toensing is flat-out wrong--sloppy wrong. Any intelligent lawyer who bothered to peruse the piece I wrote could discern that I was engaging in a thought exercise, not an act of disclosure. Besides, how can you out a CIA operative who has already been identified as a CIA operative in newspapers across the country?
Why would Toensing disregard the obvious? That's for her to explain. But I do hope she is more careful with evidence when it comes to her legal work. And I'm sorry that we will likely not be enjoying each other's company any time soon.

Folks,

In the news:

From Thinkprogress:

Senate To Investigate Administration Coercion of Military Lawyers »

Last week, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) alleged that the U.S. military’s top uniformed lawyers were pressured by the administration for more than five hours to “sign a prepared statement” supporting the President’s proposal for military tribunals. Today on CBS’s Face The Nation, Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA) announced that he plans to hold a hearing investigating the incident.

I wouldn't hold my breath on the windbag Specter doing anything.

From Thinkprogress:

Rumsfeld Unveils New Justification For Iraq War: High Gas Prices

Now, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has introduced a new rationale for the invasion of Iraq, high gas prices.

SECRETARY RUMSFELD: The fact of the matter is - if Saddam Hussein were still in power in Iraq, he would be rolling in petrol dollars. Think of the price of oil today. He would have so much money


Get thy Rummy to thy nursing home. Now, the high rise of gas prises is because of Iraq?

Hmmmmm there's interesting articles on Biloxi's blog....

Armitage and Rove were engaged in handling classified information...

This gives me an idea of what the plans are, in the leak case that Fitz has been hush hush to hint on here ever since the 'incident'...

It seems like Armitage is no good boy and there's something more to the Gerbil scam....King Cheney is probably laughing that the press bought this story.

But, there is clear another conspiracy going on behind the scenes....

It is disgusting to think Kkkarl Rove is trying to use 9-11 families, against our patriotic senators.

One should never use the victims of terrible death, crimes, or hate in order to advance a primarily political agenda!

These people make me sicker by the day, oh now, OUT with the indictments!!!!

And see what election funny business comes out of Florida too..... :)

Senator Allen was on Tim Russett this morning. From crooks and liars:

Mike Legra:

Timmeh really had Senator Allen squirming this morning over his racist tendencies. Not only did Allen call a dark-skinned Webb campaigner "macaca" — even though he just "made up" the word and didn’t know it’s considered a racist slur — and opposed a Martin Luther King Jr. holiday as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates in 1984, but Russert calls him out on an AP article citing how he "used to keep a confederate flag in his living room, a noose in his law office and a picture of confederate troops in his governors office." Politics and "confederate pride" aside, how do you explain keeping a noose in your office?

That symbolizes nothing other than oppression and hatred towards African-Americans.


Let's not forget other minorities too.

On a foot note: Allen never served in the military either.

"Don't play stupid with the American People, Karen Hughes......

Does 1999 ring a bell? "Testing is now at 100% completion."

"The testing done at Baypoint and elsewhere was a great success."

"The procedure is complete, and the election will be offset by one to three thousand votes."

Sometimes through history.....

The Neocons aka Zionists get away with what they want to do.

But then other times....

When it involves an armageddon for mankind, and the wrong way about pushing up Israel....which by the way is an illegal state...the American people get away with what they want to do....

That is to say we have eyes watching you everywhere, Hughes.
Think your election rigging scam using the Council for National Policy, aka the front group of AIPAC neocons is going to succeed?

Think again...... Your council of national policy charities aren't tax exempt. Their board members are under international investigation...

You won't abuse the homeless anymore, Ms. Hughes....And you won't be getting a check from Alan J. Weber and Douglas Alexander either.

KAREN, KAREN, KAREN.......Don't try to frame Jeff Fisher or us americans for voting fraud.......registered threats and all other actions are turned over.

The international criminal court is watching you, and it's prepared to prosecute you, Mossad, and the Zionists who hired you.

For anyone who is interesting Bush has to get the torture bill passed at any cost. If he doesn't our CIA agents who took prisoners to secret prisons and tortured them will be charged with those crimes by the UN. All the agents have life insurance policies and lawyers. Their lawyers told them to tell the truth that they were given orders by the Commander-in-Chief. Thereby George W. Bush will be charged with war crimes. The UN has all the facts from the other countries that cooperated with Bush.

Answer: the Saudias

You know that the Gerbil family has to suck up to the Saudias. The Gerbil family aqhs billions and billions of dollars invsted with the Saudias. And the Saudias have money riding on the Gerbil family. All of the pinky finger kissing tells you. The Gerbil family has always ran their investments like a corporate business. And the Gerbil's presidency was only for oil and profits.. Watch in November of shakeups of business deals with certain corporate businesses internationally and in the U.S. and oil companies execs.
