How Anti-American Can You Get?
And When Will This Madness End?
By Winter Patriot on 8/26/2005 11:38am PT  

Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

Here's a disturbing report from Editor & Publisher:

American Legion Declares War on Protestors --- Media Next?

The American Legion, which has 2.7 million members, has declared war on antiwar protestors, and the media could be next. Speaking at its national convention in Honolulu, the group's national commander called for an end to all “public protests” and “media events” against the war.

"The American Legion will stand against anyone and any group that would demoralize our troops, or worse, endanger their lives by encouraging terrorists to continue their cowardly attacks against freedom-loving peoples," Thomas Cadmus, national commander, told delegates at the group's national convention in Honolulu.

The delegates voted to use whatever means necessary to "ensure the united backing of the American people to support our troops and the global war on terrorism."

In his speech, Cadmus declared: "It would be tragic if the freedoms our veterans fought so valiantly to protect would be used against their successors today as they battle terrorists bent on our destruction.”

On the contrary, Mr. Cadmus: It would be tragic if the freedoms our veterans fought so valiantly to protect were denied to the citizens whose freedoms were supposedly being protected.

It's a shame that the American Legion leadership doesn't seem to understand any of this ... but we haven't given up hope. Someday they may come to their senses. But at the moment they are still locked into the bullshit they were fed more than thirty years ago:

"We had hoped that the lessons learned from the Vietnam War would be clear to our fellow citizens. Public protests against the war here at home while our young men and women are in harm's way on the other side of the globe only provide aid and comfort to our enemies."

What is clear to this citizen blogger is that Mr. Cadmus has no idea who our real enemies are.

According to Jason Thompson of Capitol Hill Blue, the obscene and abusive (supposedly "former") alcoholic who inhabits the Oval Office has been even more obscene and abusive lately than ever. Enjoy a few excerpts from Thompson's article of August 25th:

“I'm not meeting again with that goddamned bitch,” Bush screamed at aides who suggested he meet again with Cindy Sheehan, the war-protesting mother whose son died in Iraq. “She can go to hell as far as I'm concerned!”

Bush, administration aides confide, frequently explodes into tirades over those who protest the war, calling them “motherfucking traitors.”
...
“Who gives a flying fuck what the polls say,” he screamed at a recent strategy meeting. “I'm the President and I'll do whatever I goddamned please. They don't know shit.”
...
Aides say the President often “flips the bird” to show his displeasure and tells aides who disagree with him to “go to hell” or to “go fuck yourself.”

But don't worry. He's still a compassionate conservative, driven by Christian values. Same as he ever was.

Here is a selection of some of the latest videos from Camp Casey.

Most cable networks carried this morning's press conference at Camp Casey. Cindy gave an update on her mother's condition and remarked about how the protest had grown while she was away.

Video (Windows Media)

On Wednesday night, Cindy spoke to the crowd of supporters and responded to personal attacks from the right-wing media. DemocracyNow! and LinkTV provided this video clip. The BRAD SHOW broadcasted the event live and The BRAD BLOG has made the entire audio of her speech available for download.

Video (Windows Media)

DemocracyNow! and LinkTV have also provided a short clip of Joan Baez performing at Camp Casey on Wednesday night.

Video (Windows Media)

The pro-war group Move America Forward claims to be a grassroots movement but Keith Olbermann has exposed their connections to the GOP on MSNBC. The group was actually started by the Republican party and still uses the same PR firm to this day. It's pretty sad when you don't even have enough support for a real grassroots movement. We wonder if the pro-war protesters are also paid by the Republican party.

CrooksandLiars has the Video

Toolz of the New School blog posted this interesting video of Move America Forward pro-war operatives verbally assaulting a peace activist. It appears that Rush Limbaugh's tactics are now on a GOP sponsored bus tour that will be arriving in Crawford this weekend. Once again, the right-wingers seize the "moral low ground."

Was It An Honest Mistake? Or A Deliberate Plan To Deceive You?
Read This Article And Make Up Your Own Mind!
By Winter Patriot on 8/25/2005 1:35pm PT  

Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

Our friends at The RAW STORY have recently posted a very detailed article by British journalist Michael Smith tracing the manipulation of intelligence leading to the false claims on which the war against Iraq was supposedly "justified".

Here's a sample:

The most vociferous advocates of an attack on Iraq were Dick Cheney, the vice-president, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Rumsfeld deputy Paul Wolfowitz. They needed Congressional support and set about obtaining it in an aggressive fashion, insisting that not only did Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction threaten America and its allies but that the dictator was closely linked to al-Qa'eda.

This was a bit of a problem for the CIA, and in particular CIA director George Tenet. The CIA's 2001 annual assessment of 'worldwide threats' had played down any immediate threat from Iraq while the Agency had repeatedly dismissed the ludicrous idea that Saddam was in league with Osama bin Laden, a claim that was also strenuously denied in private by British intelligence officials.

By early 2002, US media reported the CIA had come under intense political pressure to back up the neo-cons' claims on Iraq with Rumsfeld's Pentagon even setting up an office of special plans which looked back through all the previous intelligence, hyping up any reports linking al-Qa'eda with Iraq in order to prove the CIA wrong.

Meanwhile, Dick Cheney took to visiting CIA headquarters in Langley and discussing the threat from Iraq with analysts. According to former CIA officials, the visits created a "chill factor" among those working on Iraq. There was "a kind of radical pressure" throughout 2002 and on into 2003, one said.

It's not light reading, but if you are seriously interested in learning about what happened, and why it happened, it's essential; I urge you to read entire article: Exclusive: Downing Street reporter dissects pre-war Iraq intelligence
