BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
“A committee of World Bank directors has formally notified Paul D. Wolfowitz that they found him to be guilty of a conflict of interest.” Everything George Bush and his gang of unethical corrupt Repuglican politicians touch turns into major disaster! From Iraq to the World Bank, right on to the current Department of Justice and even the price of gas, it is destruction and greed to the nth degree! Time for a change. Impeach the thieves, impeach them all, and take back our country!
So when it comes to your basic shoves and pushes
George Tenet refused to upset any of the Bushes.
He hasn't been asked about ties to The Carlisle Group
But I'm sure 41 told him to claim he's "out of the loop."

In case you're wondering why crude oil prices are down from last year, hanging around at about $60 a barrel, while gasoline prices have soared past $3.10/gallon nationwide, just check out the latest profit reports from the oil companies. They are at record levels.
In this country, putting up political dissent is the same as waving a flag. Any country in the world will let you stick up a flag. But this is America, and what makes America different is we’re allowed to put up a sign that says impeach -- a sign that says impeach, over a freeway, is just as patriotic as a flag. After 9/11, that was a time to put flags up on freeways. This is the time to put up signs that say: "Impeach this president who lies."
The First Republican Comedy Hour (otherwise known as the first Republican presidential debate) was held on May 3. It held some fascinating lessons for me, and I want to share some of them with you. I must tell you that hearing these men talk brought many a chuckle to my throat (and at times something else as well, but we won't go into that, even though I am a doctor).
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS
George Bush has made sure that the upper levels of the Justice Department remained loyal to him throughout his time in office. But the new allegations of political hirings for lower level employees means that the stench of the Bush Administration will linger in federal law enforcement for years to come.
Like the Attorney General, U.S. Attorneys serve for limited terms and tend to be replaced when a new president takes office. Most other Justice lawyers, however, are career public servants and can stay as long as they want.
