What A Coincidence

Gonzales: Outgoing deputy knew best about firings - 15 May 2007 at 11:29am - Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Tuesday he relied on his resigning deputy more than any other aide to decide which U.S. attorneys should be fired last year. His comments come a less than a day after Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty announced he would resign at the end of the summer — a decision that people familiar with the plans said was hastened by the controversy over the purge of eight prosecutors. "You have to remember, at the end of the day, the recommendations reflected the views of the deputy attorney general. He signed off on the names," Gonzales told reporters at a National Press Club forum in Washington. "And he would know better than anyone else, anyone in this room, anyone — again, the deputy attorney general would know best about the qualifications and the experiences of the United States attorneys community, and he signed off on the names."
Now he remembers, McNulty was the one responsible for the list of names -- yeah, yeah, it's all coming back to him now.

Iraq a "terrorist Disneyland" if U.S. goes: expert - 15 May 2007 at 10:56am - LONDON (Reuters) - A U.S. troop pullout from Iraq would leave the country as a potent launchpad for international terrorism and Washington would be forced to go back in within a couple of years, a leading al Qaeda expert said on Tuesday.
Whereas now, Iraq is merely a terrorist "Six Flags"? Let's not rest until Iraq has been successfully transformed into a terrorist "public library" or a terrorist "concert hall".

Japan extends support for U.S. in Iraq war - 15 May 2007 at 8:55am - TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's parliament on Tuesday passed a bill extending air force support for the U.S.-led war in Iraq for another two years, despite opposition calls for the troops to be brought home.

Feds push terrorist label on arsonists - 15 May 2007 at 9:26am - EUGENE, Ore. -- Their guilt isn't in question. The six men and four women already admitted being involved in a series of arson fires that did $40 million in damage to research facilities, a ski resort and other businesses in the West. But are they terrorists as the government says?

Thought for the day:
"The men the American public admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth." -H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)
