Basic stato political updates

So here are a few things that are going on. Well, there is the issue of Bush, Cheney with advise from their political advisors "fighting back" at Democrats for criticizing the war in Iraq. This was catchy coming from Cheney...

"Cheney called Democrats "opportunists" who were peddling "cynical and pernicious falsehoods" to gain political advantage while U.S. soldiers died in Iraq."

Couldn't help but think about pots and kettles and some calling others black. Or is it more like the biblical log in one's eye versus splinter in a neighbour's eye?

Anyway, more on what's going on. Woodard is talking. And what he is telling us is basically "Libby is a scapegoat" though not in those exact words. No? I hear no gasps? None whatsoever? Ahh well... Who are we kidding? We already knew that.

Moving on. Is it possible that the oil executives were amongst those people or groups of people that met with Cheney group in 2001,
as it prepared a broad plan friendly to oil industry interests. Environmental groups said they were mostly excluded from the discussions.
Tsk, Tsk, Tsk... Nope. Nope. Nope. Once again, not really feeling surprised. But what's interesting is that finally, finally, the democrats want to know more about it and are pushing for that information.

The way I see it is I could go on forever. So let me stop here for now. I'll continue or pick it up from here next time. But just one last tidbit of information. Yes, the US used phosphorous in Iraq. But not against civilians. And how did they come to admit this? No, they did not wake up and God was talking to one of them asking that they do what's right. No. It was an Italian report. You know what... here is the story. Will the UN respond to this? Oops, sorry, my bad. I forgot they work as the well known animal farm, and the US is the pig. More equal than others.
