MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

This is what happens in the real world, something many of us don't live in.

This is what's happening daily to citizens of Iraq, except in Iraq, the US has destroyed hospitals and rationed food and medicine. Why didn't they attack the morgues in Iraq, I wonder? Maybe those people aren't dead enough.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

It's not a good time to be a Senate Republican. After losing their majority despite their 50-50 tie-breaking advantage resulting from Cheney, they have just voted in a pair of dolts for their top leaders.

BuzzFlash Mailbag for November 15, 2006

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: Ignoring Wounds Won't Make Them Go Away

Dear BuzzFlash:

I sure hope the Democrats are just blowing smoke when they say they have no impeachment plans for Bush. Investigations are useless as long as Bush and Cheney have the right to not testify under oath, which makes most investigations costly and pointless. I can hear the usual excuses for not nailing Bush: the nation needs to heal, bipartisan efforts, ad nauseum.

As they say when the Olympics convene, "Let The Games Begin." A new Olympics gets underway today, the news Olympics, as the anglo-American hegemony of the big news cartels has for the first time a challenger in the form of well-packaged professional network. al Jazeera international goes on the air globally (but not yet in the USA) to offer another perspective.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

President Bush's upcoming visit to Vietnam bolsters comparisons between the Iraq and Vietnam wars, the Associated Press reported today. Since Bush was too busy partying during the original conflict, hopefully the trip will be a good first lesson on the effects and solutions to stupid, hopeless wars.

Cindy Sheehan: In-Curious George Goes to Vietnam

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION by Cindy Sheehan

Q: What is the difference between Vietnam and Iraq?
A: George Bush had an exit plan for Vietnam.

This is an old joke that has made the circuits. It is amusing, but not really one hundred percent accurate. George didn't have a strategy for exiting Vietnam...he had a very clear and orchestrated plan between his father's friends and his illicit drug problems to not even go to Vietnam. In my journey since Casey was killed, I have met many fine men and women who didn't dodge their duty to be dragged off to Vietnam, although most of them disagreed with that tragic war. However, most of them were conscripted against their wills and they didn't have the "advantages" of being wealthy and having influential friends to keep them out of combat.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Well, now, what an interesting development this is, considering "charges are being sought in Germany against Rumsfeld, and other top officials in the U.S. government," and "the CIA has formally acknowledged the existence of two classified documents governing aggressive interrogation and detention policies for terrorism suspects ... CIA lawyers say the documents -- memos from President Bush and the Justice Department -- are still so sensitive that no portion can be released to the public." Exactly who is being "protected" by not releasing these oh "so sensitive" documents to the public? Could this renounce the "We don't torture" statements made by Bush? Could the courts in Germany also seek out George Bush? Should "impeachment" really be "off the table"? Patriotic minds want to know!
