Book now, dates are filling up quickly!
Last major prediction, Jan. 2000 - " We'll be running defecits before you know it, lhave our moral credibility in the free world tarnished if not
lost, have policy written to the benefit of the Bush corporate supporters and be involved with some type of war to feed the defense contractor"
Damn, I'm Good! ( forget about the Yankees going to the World Series again, my emotions got in the way on that one!)
Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfield, Condi Rice....respected statesmen & thinkers!?! How's about felons John Poindexter, Ellito abrahams and Otto Reich who
should be in prosion but were pardoned by Bush Sr. right after he pardoned himself?
Dude, cut back on that stuff, I'm sure a piss cup test it right around the corner!
Two reasons they got the gig: Waaay deep in bed with the GOP's favorite contractors/contributers AND they were in the previous
GOP-supply-side-administrations. Talent was a far second to connections, based on some of the true economic & policy stars in the GOP that could have
gotten the jobs.
You believe that Ari Fleisher lie that they had Intel that AF1 was a target!?!? They already had shot down the plane over PA, and he linked several
other stops after the first. I would have respected the added legs of the trip if they would have come out and said it in the first place that the SS
took charge, instead of trying to make everyone believe that a heavily modified AF1, escorted by fighter jets, on flight patterns not known
publically, was in danger.
You're AD, what's your position on a CINC who got:
1) A choice assignment to the National Guard during Vietnam
2) Got a further choice assignment for flight trainging ahead of 200 men who scored higher
3) And Still went AWOL on his last year of service? Articles 83, 85, 86, 87. Didn't know? Here you go.......www.awolbush.com
So you have no respect for the CO's you know were getting some on the side? Or CEO's or Managers you might have worked for that had affairs? I
slammed him for it as well, but I'm not blind to the growth and prosperity our country enjoyed under his stewardship either. Especially given the
shambles he inherited after 12 years of Reaganomics.
1998 Missle attack to get OBL for Kenya - Operating on limited intelligence -- at that time, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Tazikistan refused to share
information on the terrorists whereabouts inside Afghanistan -- U. S. strikes missed bin Laden by only a couple of hours.
He sponsored legislation to freeze the financial assets of international organizations suspected of funneling money to bin Ladenís Al Qaeda network --
identical to orders given by President Bush after the fact -- but it was killed, on behalf of big banks, by Republican Senator Phil Gramm of Texas.
Clinton gave the CIA a green light to use whatever covert means were necessary to gather information on Osama bin Laden and his followers, and to
disrupt and preempt any planned terrorist activities against the United States.
As part of that effort, the CIA, under Clinton, trained and equipped some 60 commandos from Pakistan to enter Afghanistan and capture bin Laden. The
operation collapsed when Pakistan experienced a military coup and a new government took over.
In 1998, Clinton also signed a secret agreement with Uzbekistan to begin joint covert operations against Osama bin Laden and Afghanistanís Taliban
regime. U.S. Special Forces have been training there ever since, which is why the Pentagon was immediately able to use Uzbekistan as a staging area
for forays into Afghanistan.
Clinton targeted bin Laden even before he moved to Afghanistan. In 1996, his administration brokered an agreement with the government of Sudan to
arrest the terrorist leader and turn him over to Saudi Arabia. For 10 weeks, Clinton tried to persuade the Saudis to accept the offer. They refused.
With no cooperation from the Saudis, the deal fell apart.
Did nothing my azz, it's just that you boys are partisans first, patriots second.
