To Get Phone Records, FBI Lied Over 700 Hundred Times That Grand Juries Had Requested Them

The proof to do this was in "exigent letters"
Which gave them the power to enter
In related news, expect the president soon
To announce he's "the exigenter."

Linda Milazzo: Why I Love Elizabeth Edwards

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Linda Milazzo

I love Elizabeth Edwards. Which is odd, since I've never met her.

When it comes to celebrity, I'm not much impressed. In fact, I find the whole concept of idolization abhorrent. More like insane. But when it comes to Elizabeth Edwards, I'll relinquish a bit of my 'sanity' and let awe take command over me.

Cindy Sheehan: White Hot Rage

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

I have long suspected that Blackwater Security and L. Paul Bremer (what's his nickname? Scooter? Pookie?) were responsible for the insurgency in Iraq and subsequently the death of my son, Casey. I am reading Jeremy Scahill's new book: Blackwater and it is doing nothing to decrease my suspicions, only to confirm them.

Ample Precedent for White House Testimony

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Dear Chairman Leahy and Chairman Conyers:

Yesterday, President Bush asserted that the White House would give Congress "unprecedented" access to information regarding the Administration's recent dismissal of U.S. Attorneys. This statement is misinformed. As you continue discussions with the White House regarding your investigation of the U.S. Attorneys matter, I wanted to bring to your attention relevant precedent.

Ann Davidow: Why it IS about oil after all

A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
by Ann Davidow

Will the American people continue to be taken in by a government that has failed them at every turn? On the four-year anniversary of the war in Iraq, the president trotted out once again the false premises upon which this country's pre-emptive strike was based. One would have thought some level of accountability, or even a touch of shame for mistakes made, would have caused him to refrain from reiterating baseless connections as the war entered its fifth year.

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

Every day, the explanations for the firings of the eight U.S. attorneys are becoming less about competence and more about corruption. Some new statistics show that the prosecutors were in fact leading the nation in output:

Peter Michaelson: TV Torture's Toxic Toll

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Peter Michaelson

Public exposure to scenes of torture on TV is the psychological equivalent of smoking cigarettes or eating mercury-tainted fish. Whether it's intentional or not, TV torture serves as a method of indoctrination. It disguises an especially degenerate form of brutality as a necessary evil to protect national security. In the process, our collective mental health is undergoing shock treatment.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"Executive privilege" does not give you the right to circumvent the law and cover up criminal behavior, George! Now we all know you don't want the sun to shine on your political maneuverings at best, criminal actions at worst, but better America finds out everything, you and yours been up to since stealing the office of the presidency, now rather than later! And then, just maybe, we'll have a country left to salvage!

At his press conference, the president's
Favorite word was "reasonable"
I thought "Thank you, Jesus! on realizing
That it rhymed with "treasonable."
