A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Michael Winship

And how come a grenade is dated "5-31-2006?"

Speaking with a journalist friend over the weekend, just back from his sixth or seventh trip to Iraq, my mind flashed to a moment in James Goldman's play and movie "The Lion in Winter."

That's hard to explain
Harder to forget
It sounds like Andrea
Had liar's regret.

 

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Though the Bush dynasty has long been America's most notorious crime family, the current administration has been even more nepotistic towards the Cheney clan  -- with disastrous results. Take one of Cheney's daughters, for example. Elizabeth Cheney's husband was appointed general counsel for the Homeland Security Department (where he blatantly hindered and stalled multiple government investigations).

But Elizabeth herself is far more connected to political favoritism and neoconservatism within the government. And it might just help the Cheney back-office effort to lead us into war with Iran.

BuzzFlash Mailbag for February 12, 2007

BUZZFLASH MAILBAG

Subject: Is It Smoky In Here?

Okay, I can't figure out if Iran War Drums are a smokescreen for the Scooter Show or if Anna Nicole 24x7 was because Crazy Astronaut Lady was getting old. Whatever! All news is anymore is what some pinheaded executive has figured out sells to the public. It's also the death throes of old media. Good riddance and go BuzzFlash!

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

It's really more than obvious that the same White House and DoD Offices of Disinformation that brought us the war in Iraq, are the sources for the latest George Bush and Dick Cheney's prelude to nuke Iran!!!

So let's get this straight.

Douglas Feith, who headed up the insidious Office of Special Plans at the Pentagon that was created to develop, gin up, and manufacture "evidence" to justify a U.S. attack on Iraq, has been reprimanded in a long-delayed report by the Pentagon Inspector General's office, which concludes that the whole OSP project, while perhaps not illegal, was "inappropriate."

WORLD MEDIA WATCH

Summaries are excerpted from the source articles; the featured article follows the summary section. A recommended "site of the day" will also appear occasionally following the summaries.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

Some years ago, during a visit in Singapore, I noticed a huge building housing the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. I registered the sighting as evidence of the emerging power of the East in the world economy.

This came out on the same day as a report that alleges
That pre-Iraq War intel was hooey
So, when we hear this ominous warning from Bob Gates
We don’t have to buy it --- do we?

 

We have all heard many wild explanations
But one
Has to be amazed that perhaps T-Rex just
Cut one.

VERSE-CASE SCENARIO
