Hey! Who the heck is this guy? I've never seen him before.
Can you please concentrate on the real issue at hand? You're out to catch "terrorists" remember? Stop wasting our time with these nobodies.

Well when you call the visiting Iraqi PM a puppet I don't see how that can do anything but aid the propoganda of the terrorists --- which is aiding the terrorists because of the huge role PR is playing in this war. Kerry has repeatedly called for bringing home troops and we know no one else is going to send in troops --- I think the terrorists wouldn't mind this at all. So yeah I think the terrorists would rather see Kerry win, but the larger point of course is that they'd rather see us all die. Bush says kill 'em and Kerry says wait a minute. I'll take Bush. Doesn't mean Kerry wouldn't try to protect us, I just think Bush will do a much much better job of that.

Mr. Bush places a high priority on British intel. Two years ago they referred to Mr. Allawi as having no support in Iraq and that he was viewed as a puppet of the West. Of course this differentiates him from the Bushie's first choice, Mr. Chalabi, who, in fact, was a puppet of the Iranians.

I'll add to John's thought's on Scof's note by pointing out also that what Bush/Cheney did was criticize *Kerry*, suggesting he was "criticizing our allies" (ironic enough on it's own, but...) because he criticized Allawi's statements that things were going swimingly in Iraq.
I'm sure then, I needn't point out to you that Colin Powell said "things are getting worse" just yesterday on Meet the Press. Is he too "aiding the terrorists"?
One other point, the problem in Iraq is NOT "the terrorists". The problem in Iraq is the Iraqis who want us out. They are no more terrorists than the U.S. Revolutionaries who carried out a similar geurilla campaign against the British. Their tacticts, at the time, were seen as similarly barbaric since they would use such uncivilized tacticts to defeat their better armed and organized opponents as take potshots at them from behind trees and bushes instead of marching in organized fashion into face-to-face battle as was the custom of the "civilized" warriors of the day.
If you'd consider the Iraqis fighting for their homeland as "terrorists" then you have (sorry, but once again) drunk the kool-aid. They are using terrorist tactics, and a few foreign terrorists have been allowed into Iraq for the first time because we didn't secure the border, but the resistence is largely homegrown insurgents by everything that I've read.
Beyond that, what you "think" and what you have any evidence to actually demonstrate are entirely two different matters, Scof.
(P.S. I'd love to see your documentation for your claim that "Kerry has repeatedly called for bringing home troops" - but be careful and specific, because I will be happy to answer each documentation with a matching one from BushCo. So - please! - proceed at your own peril.)

Johanna - from your backyard:
TORONTO - Yusuf Islam, the British singer formerly known as Cat Stevens, was the guest of honour at a Toronto fundraising dinner hosted by an organization that has since been identified by the Canadian government as a "front" for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.
In a videotape of the 1998 event obtained by the National Post, Mr. Islam describes Israel as a "so-called new society" created by a "so-called religion" and urges the audience to donate to the Jerusalem Fund for Human Services to "lessen the suffering of our brothers and sisters in Palestine and the Holy Land."
The Jerusalem Fund is one of four "fronts" named in a secret Privy Council Office memo that was sent to Jean Chretien, then prime minister, on May 23, 2000, discussing what it called groups that "have unsavoury links with terrorism.
"In a limited number of cases, fundraising in support of violent foreign struggles takes place in Canada through the cover of ethnic, religious or community-based associations and groups, lobbying and even criminal activity," the report says.

To whom it may concern,
I am a senior citizen. During the Clinton administration I had an extremely good and well paying job. I took numerous vacations and had several vacation homes. Since President Bush took office, I have watched my entire life change for the worse. I lost my job. I lost my two sons in that terrible Iraqi War. I lost my homes. I lost my health insurance. As a matter of fact, I lost virtually everything and became homeless. Adding insult to injury, when the authorities found me living like an animal, instead of helping me, they arrested me. I will do anything that Senator Kerry wants to insure that a democrat is back in the White House come next year. Bush has to go. I just thought you and your listeners would like to know how one senior citizen views the Bush Administration. Thank you for taking time to read my letter.

perhaps there are some things you may want to forward to Mr. Bush. First it is quite uncertain that ANY monies from The Jerusalem Fund has been used to fund terrorist activities. If you believe you have evidence or know where to find evidence to the contrary you are certainly free to contact Tom "kiss your sweet ass goodbye we're all gonna die" Ridge and let him know so that we can preemptively strike Canada. You would think that KNOWN sources of Hamas funding would be the first target rather than baseless accusations. For instance the Saud regime picked up the check for the developement of the rockets Hamas uses in Palestine/Israel. The Saud regime sent over 250,000,000 dollars (American) in aid to Hamas. Yet there they are our "allies" in this war. With friends like these...and yet you are voting for a man who kust lets all this slide. Interesting.
