MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON
This is the passion that we should have heard long ago from our DLC leadership in Congress. We hear it everywhere but there. What do we have to do in this country to make Bush and his treasonous administration accountable?
by Cindy Sheehan
"You didn't care about your son and you're a phony," the irate and probably inebriated man screamed at me as he followed me and my 20 year old daughter and two of her friends out of the store we had been shopping at in our old home town of Vacaville, Ca. My months of activism, and life in general, have taught me a few lessons; one of which is: never argue with a drunk person -- that's a life lesson. My activism has taught me a few more lessons that have been learned the hard way.
Hold The Phone: Cheney Makes Sense!
by Tony Peyser
"We have no intention of ignoring history's ...
Latest gang of fanatics," he said with a glower
And then he accused these folks of simply
"Trying to murder their way to power."
I couldn't agree with you more, big guy!
But the one difference in my point of view
Is the gang of fanatics who must be stopped
Is Mr. Bush, Mr. Rumsfeld and you.
A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT
Five years ago, the amicable meeting of the leaders of Iran and Iraq would have been unimaginable. After a bitter war in the 1980s, their national feud remained one of the strongest in the world. Before we meddled in their affairs, this conflict kept them both in check and prevented them both from growing too strong or problematic.
Subject: Re: Vice President Dick Cheney Interview on Meet the Press
I will address only one issue regarding Tim Russert's interview of Vice President Cheney today. Mr. Cheney, again, said (paraphrasing) that "We have not been attacked again since 9/11, so that means we must be doing something right" in protecting the country against terrorism.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Michael Winship
We are a city of incongruities. So I guess I shouldn't have thought it odd when, early Sunday evening, I ran into two London bobbies, in full dress uniform, walking up Manhattan's Seventh Avenue, as if they were patrolling Piccadilly.
BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
Proof positive, you can't fool all the people all the time! "The percentage of Americans who blame the Bush administration for the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington has risen from almost a third to almost half over the past four years, a CNN poll released Monday found." Hope for our future is on the rise!
Ambassador Joseph Wilson Updates BuzzFlash on the Bush Administration's Betrayal of Our National SecurityWritten by BuzzFlash
A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW
Betrayal of the national security of my country is an act of treason.
-- Joseph Wilson
On August 3, 2005, we honored Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame with a BuzzFlash "Wings of Justice Award." We noted then:
The ABC 9/11 Fiction and Control of the Political Agenda
Steven Jonas, MD, MPH
Sept. 11, 2006
In an editorial on September 9, 2006, BuzzFlash noted that: "Lost in the uproar over ABC subcontracting 9/11 over to right wing extremists is the smoking gun conclusion of a Republican/Democratic Senate report that says Saddam had no connection to al-Qaeda -- and that, indeed, he went to great lengths to keep them out of Iraq. That means Bush and Cheney are responsible for opening up Iraq to al-Qaeda -- and that they lied and lied again." On the same day, BuzzFlash also observed: "Who Does the Writer/Producer of the Infamous ABC ‘Path to 9/11' Fiction Mini-Series Give His Major Interview to? Radical Wing nut David Horowitz's Publication, That's Who. In it, the Writer/Director Heaps Praise on Bush, Scorns Clinton, Praises the Patriot Act, scurrilously attacks the film ‘Syriana,' and so on."
