A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Ray McGovern

Why do I feel like the proverbial skunk at a Labor Day picnic? Sorry; but I thought you might want to know that this time next year, there will probably be more skunks than we can handle. I fear our country is likely to be at war with Iran -- and with the thousands of real terrorists Iran can field around the globe.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

BuzzFlash Note: Happy Labor Day! Barbara's Buzz returns Tuesday.

Thanks to young men like Iraqi veteran Knappenberger, Americans are finding out an “all voluntary military” is a lie! Bush’s policies “… have, in effect, created conscripted service in an ostensibly voluntary military, he said. ‘How do you tell a 17-year-old or a 55-year-old grandpa that [he's] part of a voluntary military and yet he's being involuntarily extended’?" The Repuglicans are finding out it takes more than propaganda to make it true!

WORLD MEDIA WATCH 

BuzzFlash Note: Since Monday is a holiday, look for Gloria's next column on Tuesday.

Which only makes me recall how
He was one of the Keating Five.

Government's top veterinarian leaves to spend more time with industry.

Leaving a government job for the private sector used to mean an end to pressure, accountability, and visibility. But not for former Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) administrator Dr. W. Ron DeHaven, the Department of Agriculture's top veterinarian.

Greg Palast: New Orleans two years after

"They wanted them poor n*ggers out of there and they ain't had no intention to allow it to be reopened to no poor n*ggers, you know? And that's just the bottom line."

It wasn't a pretty statement. But I wasn't looking for pretty. I'd taken my investigative team to New Orleans to meet with Malik Rahim. Pretty isn't Malik's concern.
