BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

How long you wanna bet it'll take Karl Rove to cook up a story that this is either Bill Clinton's or Osama's fault? "NASA delayed the planned landing of space shuttle Atlantis ... Landing had been scheduled for Wednesday morning ... concerns that something crucial floated out of the craft prompted the delay, space shuttle communicator Terry Virts told the crew."

I have had the opinion all along that this talk of "clarification" is not to protect the CIA agents in carrying out their job, but rather to protect this administration from bearing the responsibility of ordering up rendition and torture when and wherever they felt like it! Evidence has shown that all the "detainees" have not been terrorists and there have been innocent men caught up in Bush's vast terrorist trolling net. Torture has been "acceptable" for the Bush administration and "clarification" is just a frame for justification! And that is "unacceptable"!

Looks like Karl Rove ain't so smart after all; Osama bin Laden is trumping Karl Rove in the propaganda wars! While bin Laden's message is not readily available here in the United States, it is certainly resonating all around the world and is working for Al Qaeda's recruitment, recruitment, recruitment. Ohhhh, if only Rove had targeted his character assassination methods on bin Laden instead of the Democrats in the United States, how much better off the world would have been!

In every analysis regarding Karl Rove and his sleazy underhanded political tactics, voting is always referenced as a solution for overcoming this hold Repuglican corruption has on our Democracy! What most don't seem to remember is Rove has an ace in the hole that is frequently not mentioned and will be our demise if not taken care of before this November! That ace is black-box voting and pre-determined "fixed" elections. The Supreme Court knew not what they did when they handed George Bush the presidency on a silver platter and unleashed hell on earth here in the USA! All the individual components for maintaining a fascist state were in place long before the year 2000 when the devil obliterated democracy!

Having watched Jon Stewart's interview with President Bill Clinton on The Daily Show, I am reminded of what it was like to have a duly elected President who could think on his feet and one who truly cares about people and the American condition! What a contrast to the spoiled brat, narcissistic, self-absorbed, torture loving, sociopath perched in the Oval Office in today's world!

Imprisoning people without due process goes against everything America has held sacred for over 200 years. Who in America thinks that someone can be justifiably imprisoned on innuendo and intimation? Since when has it been acceptable to arrest an individual and deny him his day in court, just because someone "believes" that individual has done something wrong? "The Pentagon defended on Monday its months-long detention of an Associated Press photographer in Iraq, asserting that it has authority to imprison him indefinitely without charges because it believes he had improper ties to insurgents." The Pentagon has not been exactly a paragon of truth and justice since dotty Donald took over, if Bilal Hussein is as guilty as the Pentagon "believes" he is, then charge him with a crime, allow him his day in court and convict him! Today it's Bilal Hussein, tomorrow it could be us!

Belatedly watching the Memorial Service for Ann Richards with tears in my eyes, I am again reminded of what a great American this nation has lost. While Ann's presence will no longer be with us her legacy and all that she stood for will live on in the future generations who really do believe that we can be the best at whatever we undertake! Hers was to instill hope not fear for the future of America. Thank You Ms. Richards for everything you've done for us and for our country!

There is at least one country in this world that finds politicians who lie "unacceptable"! It's not politics as usual for Hungarians--when a "leaked tape" hit the news and Hungarians discovered, "We screwed up. Not a little, a lot," Gyurcsany was heard saying. ... "we lied morning, evening and night." "It prompted violent protests and calls for his resignation"! Resignation is an acceptable solution for any politician who lies, and most especially for those who lie in order to wage preemptive unnecessary war!
