Really it’s funny. They actually help Bush. Malaysia doesn’t sound biased at all… nah.
LOL Bush Convicted of War Crimes in Malaysia …yeah not a bit hypocritical for a country known for Cruel PunishmentMay 13, 2012
Rice also disputed a passage in Cheney’s memoir in which he says the secretary of state “tearfully admitted” that the Bush administration should not have apologized for a claim in Bush’s 2003 State of the Union address on Iraq’s supposed search for uranium. She says she wasn’t crying, but she admits it was a mistake to apologize. <—there is the key point! Cheney TOLD Condi that it would be a mistake to apologize for NO WMDS. He was right… cuz there were WMDS. Even Noam Chomsky admits it. Of course Saddam had WMDS! The West gave it to him. Did you think Bush wouldn’t know what his Dad and probably the CIA had given Saddam?
Nader: Impeach Obama for War Crimes or Something….
Obama has now joined some of the most notorious war criminals of our era, the vil Bush and Cheney.
Get Ralph some decaf.
Former presidential candidate Ralph Nader says that President Obama should be impeached for committing war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The consumer advocate and former presidential candidate said in an interview that aired Friday that Obama has committed “war crimes” on the same level as President Bush.
“Why don’t we say what’s on the minds of many legal experts; that the Obama administration is committing war crimes and if Bush should have been impeached, Obama should be impeached,” Nader said in an interview with the anti-war Democracy Now! organization.
Nader’s comments came before the U.S. launched military strikes into Libya on Saturday but are among the toughest criticisms Obama has endured from the left.
Deadly Fictions – The classified diplomatic cables published by Wikileaks are the Pentagon Papers of the pro-Israel right – by Lee SmithDecember 1, 2010
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has positioned himself as a left-wing whistleblower whose life mission is to call the United States to task for the evil it has wreaked throughout the world. But after poring through the diplomatic cables revealed via the site yesterday, one might easily wonder if Assange isn’t instead a clandestine agent of Dick Cheney and Bibi Netanyahu; whether his muckraking website isn’t part of a Likudnik plot to provoke an attack on Iran; and if PFC Bradley Manning, who allegedly uploaded 250,000 classified documents to Wikileaks, is actually a Lee Harvey Oswald-like neocon patsy.
With all due apologies to Oliver Stone (and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran and Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey), what the Wikileaks documents reveal is not a conspiracy of any kind but a scary and growing gap between the private assessments of American diplomats and allies in the Middle East and public statements made by U.S. government officials. The publication of these leaked cables is eerily reminiscent of the Pentagon Papers, which exposed a decade-long attempt by U.S. officials to distort and conceal unpalatable truths about the Vietnam War, and manipulate public opinion. The difference is that while the Pentagon Papers substantially vindicated the American left, the Wikileaks cable dump vindicates the right.
Here are eight of the most obvious examples from the initial trove of documents that has appeared online: the rest of the exposure via tabletmag.com
some commentators like at the news hour by Soros funded PBS had it’s regular Israel bashing analysis… (and this had me cackling) had ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI allude that Israel or a hostile party to Turkey was behind the Wikileak. One can easily see that the Wikileak will evolve in the Arab world into another variation of 911Troof. Too many of Israel’s enemies were really hurt by these cables… and it is very hard to spin that this didn’t help Israel’s survival away from a Holocaust.
The news that terrorists were using the ambulances in Israel was revealing… but no more as revealing as the responses by the Israel bashing media
: “This is even sometimes discussed. You can find it in the strategic analysis literature. Take, say, the invasion of Iraq again. We’re told that they didn’t find weapons of mass destruction. Well, that’s not exactly correct. They did find weapons of mass destruction, namely, the ones that had been sent to Saddam by the United States, Britain, and others through the 1980s. A lot of them were still there. They were under control of U.N. inspectors and were being dismantled. But many were still there. When the U.S. invaded, the inspectors were kicked out, and Rumsfeld and Cheney didn’t tell their troops to guard the sites. So the sites were left unguarded, and they were systematically looted. The U.N. inspectors did continue their work by satellite and they identified over 100 sites that were systematically looted, like, not somebody going in and stealing something, but carefully, systematically looted.”
I still don’t agree with him, but I’m glad Noam isn’t in charge of the safety of people.
