fire, CBS defends memos
I struggle to find a way to make people understand the
facts of the US war against Iraq when it is obvious that Iraq had
little or nothing to do with 9-11. Most of the people around me
are intelligent, educated people who refuse to accept the facts
and if they do accept the facts it does not matter.
Sometimes, I feel like I am swimming in quicksand.
Thank you for the facts.
MISLEADS ON IRAQ / AL-QAEDA CONNECTION
a brazen disregard for the facts, Vice President Cheney
told an audience in Cincinnati Thursday that Iraq had "provided
safe harbor and sanctuary...for Al Qaeda."
There is no evidence to support Cheney's claim.
The 9/11 Commission - which spent months exhaustively studying
the issue - concluded there was no "collaborative relationship"
between Iraq and al-Qaeda.
After the release of the report, Cheney claimed there was "overwhelming"
evidence of a relationship between al-Qaeda and Iraq and that
he had "probably" seen evidence that was not shared
with the commission. After investigating the matter, the 9/11
Commission found "it had access to the same information the
vice president has seen regarding contacts between Al Qaeda and
Iraq prior to the 9/11 attacks."
The commission also reaffirmed its position that it had not discovered
a "collaboration-cooperation between al-Qaeda and Iraq."

You are one of those people. Thank you.
Your show alternately makes me laugh and think and think

being thrown out of a small, Caribbean country for journalistic

necessary; I can't ask the "are you still beating your wife"
Now I listen to your show and blithely follow your web links,
shambling after you like dingle-doodies. (How many other fan letters
do you get with oblique Kerouac references?)
No criticism, no complaints. Just a heartfelt thanks for the job
I notice you and Riccardi are now using a laugh track on your
shows. Either that or you keep someone in the background who
is very easily amused. Whatever the case, I never knew you guys
were so incredibly funny! Now I know when to crack up! Can you
get a violin track so I know when to be upset?
Thanks for the (now) complete show!
Yeah. We have a new studio producer, Brian, who does react quite
enthusiastically. Part of me thinks it sounds canned and fake,
and part of me appreciates him at least listening to what he
is working on...

Of course, it was okay for her employer to have a flyer in the

It's worse than you think As Americans debate Vietnam,
the U.S. death toll tops 1,000 in Iraq. And the insurgents
are still getting stronger
months after the war's supposed end, Iraq's insurgency is
spreading. Each successful demand by kidnappers has spawned
more hostage-takingsto make Philippine troops go home,
to stop Turkish truckers from hauling supplies into Iraq,
to extort fat ransom payments from Kuwaitis. The few relief
groups that remain in Iraq are talking seriously about leaving.
U.S. forces have effectively ceded entire cities to the insurgents,
and much of the country elsewhere is a battleground.

the losses aren't only in Iraq. Al Qaeda has regrouped. The invasion

the opposite: nasty regimes around the world feel empowered now

Bush about North Korea's ongoing nuclear program, "he opened
his palms and shrugged."
Yet many voters still believe that Mr.
Bush is doing a good job protecting America.
