newspapers' websites handle the ISG report:

'almost all wrong' on weapons
The 1991 Persian Gulf War and subsequent U.N. inspections destroyed
Iraq's illicit weapons capability and, for the most part, Saddam
Hussein did not try to rebuild it, according to an extensive report
by the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq.

worked secretly on WMDs Saddam Hussein's
goal through the 1990s and until the 2003 U.S. invasion was to end
U.N. sanctions on Iraq, while working covertly to restore the country's
ability to produce weapons of mass destruction, a report by the
chief U.S. weapons inspector says.

report: Iraq didn't have WMDs Saddam Hussein's weapons
of mass destruction programs had deteriorated into only hopes and
dreams by the time of the U.S.-led invasion last year, a decline
wrought by the first Gulf War and years of international sanctions,
the chief U.S. weapons hunter found. And what ambitions Saddam harbored
for such weapons were secondary to his goal of evading those sanctions,
and he wanted them primarily not to attack the United States or
to provide them to terrorists, but to oppose his older enemies,
Iran and Israel.
It's interesting that the opposing responses are so balanced...

read an article from Andy's BOROWITZ REPORT book on the air, and
email makes it clear that many of you appreciated being informed
about the deterioration in craftsmanship among aliens who produce
crop circles. Andy's interview with the Idaho farmer whose field
had been messed up by a poorly-made, unfinished "half-assed"
crop circle illustrated the problem. Borowitz was, as usual, miles
ahead of the traditional media on yet another story.

much a tie
Did you listen to the little bytes of testimony on the news about
there being no wmd in Iraq? The Bushidiots are now saying that Saddam
had "intent" to develop. The only comment I heard was
that scientists in Iraq "ASSUMED" that programs would
re-start when sanctions were ended. So we lost over 1000 brave souls
because of what someone assumed. It should be enough to make the
whole country sick at it's collective stomach. How can anyone who
has a heart beating in their chest or a brain in their head support
this? Iraq is a monument to stupidity.
WMDs / undecided voters
I think it's a waste of time to help the undecided voters to decide.
I've told you that I was an undecided "Republican." Yesterday's
report to Congress about no WMD in Iraq affirmed my earliest suspicions;
we didn't need to go to war with Iraq. There's a lot of bad guys
in the world that are hurting a lot of people- that's no reason
to invade Iraq. Having said that, there is no way I can get myself
to vote for Kerry. Call me what you will, I may sit this one out.
Bush and Kerry need to focus on getting their Base out and not spend
a lot of time on those of us to disgutsed to give a damn.
Brad is a liar
For some reason you continue to lie.
Last night I accidently tuned in to hear you accuse Vice President
Cheney of having claimed that Saddam had a connection to 9/11, which
is not true as you could verify if you cared about your credibility.
And you might also take time to read the final 9/11 commission report
and Stephen Hayes' THE CONNECT for more an ample evidence to refute
any claim that Saddam and Osama weren't working together.
But I know you are the kind of person who would rather hear yourself
talk than actually learn the facts, which is why I do not listen
to your show, or any show where you are spewing your idiocy.
I'm sure Herr Goebbels would be proud of you, however. What I wonder,
though, is if you really belive the lies you continue to spew. Unfortunately,
I think you are indeed probably stupid enough to believe them.
actually, I'm the kind of guy who's tired of your ignorance and
negativity. I am now blocking your email, so save your time.
Iraq brain injuries
This is a truly horrific result of the war in Iraq and some of the
injured troops. How many of them and what will be the eventual cost?
Completely unknown, and Bushco doesn't care at all.
I am so glad you are a talk show host within my listening range
(Temple). You are the only one in Texas within my range that I will
listen to. You respect opinions that are different from yours and
most do not want to listen to opinions that are not the same as
theirs... Thanks for presenting truth and not propaganda.
dumb Rep. Barton
this hilarious story in my October 4, 2004 issue of Broadcasting
and Cable Magazine. Its on Page 9, In The Loop
section. I guess Representative Joe has never seen Fox News. What
a jerk this guy is.
Also, KLUP 930 doesnt think there are enough Right Wing-Nuts
on the radio so they changed format to offer us even more of the
Hate-Radio Rodeo. I guess theyre preparing for the Kerry/Edwards
win. Thanks, Brad, for making me laugh and keeping me sane.
Bullies TV News
Broadcast news has sunk to an "instantaneous gratification,
reality-TV scenario," complains Rep. Joe Barton, who oversees
the broadcast industry as chairman of the House Commerce Committee.
He's so angry he's threatening to hold hearings on Dan Rather's
National Guard document fiasco. "It's going to be fair and
balanced," says the Texas Republican.
The first subject in his sights: 60 Minutes, although he
suspects the same shortcomings exist at other networks. For openers,
he wonders why CBS let Rather serve as his own managing editor and
worries that there's "no safety valve" to prevent Rather
from putting his opinions into news stories.
"If somebody wants to broadcast to every American an opinion,
you have the right to do that. Rush Limbaugh does that every day.
But if you're going to proclaim it is the news
needs to be real safeguards." Perhaps, Barton suggests, too
many TV reporters didn't get their start in newspapersor,
as he puts it, "real journalism." Print editing, he surmises,
is more thorough.
What happens if lawmakers think it's time for a cleanup? Barton
insists Congress won't pass any media restrictions, but does offer
the ominous image of Russia, where station owners who anger the
government hire "armed guards or pay a big bribe" to stay
on the air.

dying for nothing
I don't suppose that we Liberals who told the Conservatives two
years ago that Bush and his gang were lying about threat that Saddam
presented, will be getting an apology any time soon. We were not
only shouted down, ridiculed and in some cases made to pay for our
opinions with our careers, but we were even called unpatriotic and
un-American. The smugness and arrogance of the Republicans is incredible
at times. They can lie, steal and cheat and cause a 1,000 young
soldiers to die for nothing and still claim it was the right thing
