Subject: About Bin Laden's dyed beard ...

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

George Bush and his minions want us to think there’s progress in Iraq, but I ask you, how can they claim progress anywhere when they can’t even take care of the “Homeland” as evidenced by the recent “GAO evaluation of the massive Department of Homeland Security”?  “JOE JOHNS…When it comes to emergency preparedness and response, which is what you want your Homeland Security Department to be really good at, a new report indicates the feds have pretty much flunked. SEN. MARY LANDRIEU (D), LOUISIANA: This report is sort of the definitive authority that virtually nothing much has been done, missing 18 out of 25 marks, a nation still unprepared to prevent or respond to a catastrophic disaster…JOHNS: Claire McCaskill used to be the auditor for the state of the Missouri. She says the problem isn't the grading system; it's the failures GAO found.”  Hmm, its time for America to “kick” some “ass” out of office!  Read my lips, IMPEACH-IMPEACH-IMPEACH!

Robert Greenwald: The Real Rudy

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Robert Greenwald

"It's just not possible."

That was the sentence we heard over and over from families who had firefighter sons, brothers, husbands and fathers killed on 9/11, from experts on emergency response, and from investigative journalists. It was just not possible that Rudy could so distort what happened on 9/11 and his role on that terrible day.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

With Craig threatening to not resign
The hour is now getting late
To saddle up some men, go to Idaho
And set that senator straight.

Considering what Bush has done since being elected
One can take the point of view

Cindy Sheehan: Dead Wrong

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

A new book called Dead Certain by Robert Draper of GQ magazine was just published. I haven't read it yet and I don't know when I will have the time or the intestinal fortitude to read an account of the presidential life of the person who was responsible for the death of my oldest child, Casey, but I have seen reports and read excerpts from it. I cannot profess complete knowledge about it, but of course, one of the excerpts particularly caught my eye and imagination.

Mike Ferner: I Will Salute No More Forever

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Mike Ferner

St. Louis - His government broke his heart but it could not break Air Force veteran Charles Powell's spirit. Fighting back tears, the 64 year-old vet stood tall and resolute in front of 400 of his comrades, describing in verse the final steps of a painful disillusionment.
