Cindy Sheehan: Mass Murderers

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

"Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect."

Chief Seattle 1855

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell may have a serious reelection fight coming up next year. The arch-conservative is one of the few elected officials stubborn enough to maintain full support for President Bush and Iraq, and even his home state of Kentucky seems to be getting sick of him.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION

Thank you Harry Reid for acknowledging what the world press has been saying for more than a year, maybe longer: The war is lost. Now we have the Sunday New York Times with a page 1 picture of an Iraqi being tortured, along with a story featuring claims by the U.S. military that it is making headway. The story reports that its "successful interrogation" was enhanced by our Iraqi allies; the paper then reported that he was softened up by being beaten to a pulp with electrical cords.

Threats of terrorism and 12 million "illegal" immigrants are being used to justify new police-state measures in the United States. Coordinated mass arrests, Big Brother spy blimps, expanded detention centers, repeal of the Posse Comitatus Act, and suspension of habeas corpus have all been recently implemented and are ready to use against anyone in the U.S.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

It seems "delusional" is not limited to Bush/Cheney and the Bush administration! This delusional virus is spreading to include a whole lot of neoconservative pundits, right wing blogs, and I say this with tongue in cheek, neoconservative "journalists"!! Seems the latest smoke and mirrors "talking points," coming from British neocon Melanie Phillips, include the bogus claim that Saddam did have WMDs and they were stolen, to be used by the terrorists!!!

A. He knows more of the skeletons in the Bush closet and more about their details than anyone.

We saw on C-SPAN that you had a great time at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner Saturday night. We had encouraged you to cancel this dinner because fraternizing with George W. Bush and other constitutional lawbreakers seemed to us to be inappropriate behavior on your part. But your journalistic rendition of "Hail to the Chief," clothed in fundraising for college scholarships, went on anyway.
