BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH
If it weren't all so pathetic it would be hilarious, watching the Repuglican leadership in the House of Representatives and all the rest of those armchair, chicken-hawk, warrior Repuglicans, "cut and run" from the Foley disaster! "I didn't know", "I told him", "it's in his corner now", etc. etc. etc.! They aren't even dodging bombs and bullets and they can't stand up! Yep, there's nothing like sex crimes and scandal to cower a bunch of wimps without backbones! To know their boners are self-inflicted, doesn't lessen the blow and/or the damage!

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
Uh-oh, we're in trouble. Five of the 19 dead September 11 hijackers are not on the U.S. no-fly list, according to a 60 Minutes report to be broadcast this Sunday. Luckily, the other 15 are. Thanks to George Bush's vigilant anti-terrorism policies, these remaining hijackers would be stopped in their tracks at the airport should they decide to come back to life to strike again.

1//Asia Times Online, Hong Kong--TALIBAN LAY PLANS FOR ISLAMIC INTIFADA (With the snows approaching, the Taliban's spring offensive has fallen short of its primary objective of reviving the Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan, as the country was known under Taliban rule from 1996-2001. Both foreign forces and the Taliban will bunker down until next spring, although the Taliban are expected to continue with suicide missions and some hit-and-run guerrilla activities. The Taliban will take refuge in the mountains that cross the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, where they will have plenty of time to plan the next stage of their struggle: a countrywide "Islamic Intifada of Afghanistan" calling on all former mujahideen to join the movement to boot out foreign forces from Afghanistan. The intifada will be both national and international. On the one hand it aims to organize a national uprising, and on the other it will attempt to make Afghanistan the hub of the worldwide Islamic resistance movement, as it was previously under the Taliban when Osama bin Laden and his training camps were guests of the country.)

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSISWith a poll revealed by none other than FOX News showing that if Hastert stays on as House Speaker, the GOP could lose up to 50 seats in the House, it was time for Karl Rove to come in and start organizing a classic divert, diffuse and delay strategy.
Hastert is staying on for the moment as GOP House Speaker for three reasons only. Internal Republican polling must show that the potential GOP losses in the House might be even greater if Hastert resigns – given that it would be an admission of culpability (as it should be), and given that anyone who might replace him would have skeletons in his closet that might come tumbling out just days before the election.
