1100 Iraqis Die Violent Deaths in Baghdad During Single Month
Saddam's Generals are Leading the Insurgency
By David Edwards on 12/14/2005 7:51pm PT  

Guest blogged by David Edwards

Earlier this week Robert Fisk was interviewed at California State Polytechnic University. Robert Fisk, a journalist for The Independant, is a specialist in reporting on the Middle East. Host, Saul Landau, asked Mr. Fisk about the current situation in Iraq.

Fisk makes some important points during this interview:

  • "Hotel Journalists" report from the hotel room because of dangers in Iraq. Government claims are usually reported as fact because journalists are not able to verify them. Journalists often fail to tell their viewers that the "facts" have not been verified.

  • Fisk got access to the Baghdad's mortuary database which journalists are not normally allowed to see. He discovered that during July, in Baghdad alone, 1100 Iraqis died violent deaths. (How does this square with George Bush's assertion that 30,000 Iraqis in total have died since the beginning of the war?)
  • There are "death squads on all sides" in Iraq.
  • "It's anarchy and chaos from Mosul all the way down to Basra. The idea that it's just a couple of provinces in a state of disturbance is ridicules."
  • "Iraq is going down the tubes. Iraqi people are more and more suffering, more and more dying tragic, terrible, painful, violent deaths."
  • "We're finished. The project is over. We can have as many referendums and constitutions as we like. Iraq is outside all government and Western control now with the exception of little fortresses in the green zone. And even there, mortars drop."
  • Fisk says that generals and other high-ranking military officials of the Iraqi Army which was disbanded by Paul Bremmer are now the leaders of the insurgency. These leaders still maintain the power structures and titles they held before the Army was disbanded. Most of these leaders speak English well and were trained by Western institutions. These men will be instrumental helping to take back control of Iraq after the Americans have left.

    Robert Novak is Back: 'President Knows Who the Source Is'
    By David Edwards on 12/14/2005 11:48am PT  

    Guest blogged by David Edwards

    If reporters and cameras greet you as you leave for work in the morning then you are probably in the media's spotlight. Karl Rove found himself in that familiar situation this morning and it's making some Republicans a little nervous.

    As MSNBC's David Shuster says in the following clip, Viveca Novak's testimony did little to help Rove. Robert Luskin, Rove's attorney, has predicted that Viveca Novak's testimony about indirectly reminding Rove of a conversation with Time's Matt Cooper would explain why Rove's initial testimony to the grand jury didn't include those conversations in which Rove revealed the identity of a CIA agent.

    -- Video in Windows Media format...
    -- Video in QuickTime format...
    -- Audio in MP3 format...

    If reports are correct then Viveca Novak's testimony did little or nothing to bolster Rove's case. It also doesn't explain why Rove took 5 months after being "reminded" of his conversation with Cooper to notify the grand jury. An article posted at The Raw Story says that Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is presenting additional evidence to the grand jury today.

    The other unrelated "Novak" popped out of his hole long enough to stir up some more controversy in the CIA Leak investigation. As reported by The News & Observer, Robert Novak, who was first to disclose the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame in the press, said the president knows the identity of the individual in the White House who leaked Plame's identity.

    "I'm confident the president knows who the source is," Novak told a luncheon audience at the John Locke Foundation in Raleigh on Tuesday. "I'd be amazed if he doesn't."

    "So I say, 'Don't bug me. Don't bug Bob Woodward. Bug the president as to whether he should reveal who the source is.' "

    UPDATE from The Raw Story: Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald did not meet with the grand jury today as expected. Sources (vague as they are) report that Fitzgerald did "move forward" with the case.

    CNN Reports that Iraqi insurgents (Bush-speak: Saddamists, Rejectionists, and Terrorists) are building more sophisticated I.E.D.'s (improvised explosive devices) which increases the violence and danger for U.S. Forces. A new type of IED uses a projectile that can go through 4 inches of steel on an M1 tank from 300 feet away. The projectile-style IED is often hidden in foam and disguised to look like concrete.

    The Pentagon claims that Syrians and Iranians are coming across the borders to train insurgents how to build more sophisticated weapons. Attacks are expected to increase after the election.

    This morning on the NBC Today Show, Chris Matthews acknowledged that falling gas prices have given the president a small bump in the polls. Matthews said that the trend in approval ratings since 9/11 is downward and that trend will continue due to problems with the Administration's Iraq policy.

    President Bush's recent speeches win the argument that "We cannot leave Iraq now" but it also reinforces the perception that "we are never leaving Iraq". In fact, Matthews said, he had never heard the president say that we would eventually pull all the troops out of Iraq. It is no secret that the neocons have long wanted to use permanent military power to protect our "interests in Iraq" and to eventually become the dominate military power in the Middle East.

    The unspoken policy of unending military influence in Iraq offers Americans no "light at the end of the tunnel", Matthews said.

    Democrats have been largely divided on the future of the Iraq war. Matthews predicted that Harry Reid would attempt to show that most Democrats are coalesced behind a moderate pseudo-policy. Senator Reid and other Democrats will suggest a "timetable" that draws down troops based on measurable progress without imposing an actual timeline. Matthews thinks that it could take a year or longer to put enough pressure on the administration before they would accept concrete definitions of success tied to troop redeployments.

    Matthews said that both sides should join the debate on whether or not there will be total troop withdrawal from Iraq.

    Senator Joe Lieberman said he had breakfast with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and General Pace. Lieberman denied rumors that he has plans to replace Rumsfeld as the Secretary of Defense.

    According to an AP report, the Pentagon claims that the breakfast meeting was called so that Lieberman could share his impressions of Iraq with Rumsfeld and General Pace.

    Secretary of State Rice is in Europe this week defending the U.S. policies including the use of secret prisons and the CIA practice called "extreme rendition".

    ABC News is reporting that prior to Rice's European trip, the CIA moved quickly to relocate all secret prisoners located in Europe.

    Current and former CIA officers speaking to ABC News on the condition of confidentiality say the United States scrambled to get all the suspects off European soil before Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrived there today. The officers say 11 top al Qaeda suspects have now been moved to a new CIA facility in the North African desert.

    ...
    All but one of these 11 high-value al Qaeda prisoners were subjected to the harshest interrogation techniques in the CIA's secret arsenal, the so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques" authorized for use by about 14 CIA officers and first reported by ABC News on Nov. 18.

    Rice today avoided directly answering the question of secret prisons in remarks made on her departure for Europe, where the issue of secret prisons and secret flights has caused a furor.

    ...
    Of the 12 high-value targets housed by the CIA, only one did not require water boarding before he talked. Ramzi bin al-Shibh broke down in tears after he was walked past the cell of Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the operational planner for Sept. 11. Visibly shaken, he started to cry and became as cooperative as if he had been tied down to a water board, sources said.

    Bush Misleads, Democrats Fracture Over Iraq Plan
    From Daily Show to Countdown to Other Media Outbreaks on the Politics of War...
    By David Edwards on 12/3/2005 12:00pm PT

    On Wednesday, President Bush gave a speech at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis to unveil an unclassified version of something called the "National Strategy for Victory in Iraq".

    As Maureen Dowd notes in today's NY Times, the Bush Administration's recently released plan is not a plan for victory as much as badly crafted political talking points. We wonder if the victory that Mr. Bush is planning for has more to do with the 2006 elections than achieving stability in Iraq.

    Mr. Bush asserts that progress is being made in Iraq but his facts don't stand up to the truth on the ground. One of the most glaring discrepancies is Bush's claim that Iraqi troops lead the recent assault on Tal Afar. The Time Magazine reporter, Michael Ware, who was embedded with Iraqi troops in the Tal Afar battle has a different story:

    I was in that battle from the very beginning to the very end. I was with Iraqi units right there on the front line as they were battling with al Qaeda. They were not leading. They were being led by the U.S. green beret special forces with them.

    It's no surprise that a majority of Americans don't believe that the Bush Administration has a plan for victory in Iraq.

    While the Bush team is flailing to find decent talking points, the Democrats can't seem to agree on any plan for resolution of the Iraq war crisis. By the end of this week the Democrats were holding at least three different positions:

    • Lieberman - Let 'em die. Whatever Bush says is OK with me.

    • Hillary - Let 'em die for another year or so. Maybe I'll change my mind after a few more polls.
    • Murtha - Bring 'em home as soon as practicable (6 months or less).

    We've complied some video clips highlighting this week's developments in the politics of Iraq. From Bush's misleading speech to the Democrats fractured positions, it seems that most politicians are more concerned with their political futures than the futures of 150,000 men and women who have become living targets in an un-justified and un-winnable war.

    Scandal could bring down at least a dozen in Congress
    VIDEO: A ROUND-UP OF THE SUNDAY SHOWS ON THE GROWING SCANDAL
    By David Edwards on 11/28/2005 10:44am PT  

    Guest blogged by David Edwards

    Last week, über-lobbyist Jack Abramoff's former partner Michael Scanlon pleaded guilty. As part of the plea deal, Scanlon admitted that he conspired to bribe public officials and defrauded several Indian casinos of millions of dollars. Scanlon has agreed to cooperate with the prosecution and pay restitution in the amount of $19 million.

    Yesterday, on the Sunday talk shows, they were abuzz about the spectre of a scandal which threatens to overwhelm Washington. We've got a video compilation below.

    U.S. News & World Report has learned that Scanlon is now the star witness "in a probe that threatens to ensnare officials throughout the nation's capital." A source reports that the scandal could take out a least a dozen in Congress.

    John McCain is leading the senate investigation into Abramoff which has been also linked to the anti-government crusader Grover Norquist. According to an article in the Boston Globe, Norquist is now attacking McCain.

    Now the conservative activist is on the warpath against Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, who is leading the Senate investigation.

    After ATR turned over its e-mails, Norquist charged, McCain tried to ''steal our donor list."
    ...
    Norquist then accused McCain and Senator Byron L. Dorgan, a North Dakota Democrat, of discrimination by targeting lobbyists who worked for Native American tribes. Abramoff and his partners collected $82 million in fees from Indian tribes and their casinos over four years.
    ...
    When we asked the senator's staff for a comment on Norquist's fusillade against McCain, his chief of staff, Mark Salter, had a lot to say. "In Norquist's world, the truth is for suckers. And it's as pointless to respond to him as it would be to respond to some street-corner schizophrenic," Salter responded.

    We've put together clips of discussions on the GOP's Abramoff scandal from this Sunday's editions of ABC's This Week and Fox News Sunday. All the pundits seem to agree that this investigation could become a big problem for Republicans.

    As Another Time magazine reporter agrees to testify
    By David Edwards on 11/28/2005 8:43am PT  
    Guest blogged by David Edwards

    On Sunday's edition of the PBS's The McLaughlin Group, Pat Buchanan predicted that there will be more indictments in the Valerie Plame/CIA Leak case. It was a quick comment that we would have missed if not for Brad's keen eye. Predicted Buchanan at the end of the show: "Scooter will not be the last indictee."

    Several news services have now confirmed that Time magazine reporter Viveca Novak (no relation to Bob) has agreed to testify under oath regarding conversations she had with Karl Rove's lawyer Robert Luskin.

    What do these new developments mean for the case? Jane and ReddHedd at firedoglake have some ideas.
