Go ahead, impeach Bush; try him

So, Dennis Kucinich has introduced articles of Impeachment against President Bush.I think he tried this once before, didn't he? (Ah, I see that was about Cheney.)The blogs are ablaze with it, of course, Fausta may have been first out of the gate, and both Thomas Lifson and Rick Moran are looking closely at Obama's remarks about trying people for "war crimes."I sort of knew this was where it was all heading two weeks ago when Couric, Gibson and Williams got together for an early morning … [Read more...]

9/11, Iraq, WMD, Clinton’s “birthday” and more

My mailbox is overflowing (I can't keep up) with people mailing things about 9/11, or about Iraq, Bill Clinton, WMD - and much of it is interesting, some of it is annoying.

The left won't like it, but they can't say it's a lie. Well, they can - reality is just a concept to some, after all. … [Read more...]

Able Danger hearings troubling (updated)

Like Dr. Sanity, I could not find television coverage of the Able Danger hearings. But Dr. Sanity looked further and found a webstream source, from which she writes a really excellent summary of what was discussed today and what conclusions intelligent folks may draw. All of it is troubling, and all of it calls into question the theatrics of last year within the 9/11 commission.Dr. Sanity thinks that perhaps AD was disbanded because it shed too much light on subjects unrelated to 9/11 that … [Read more...]

So many dots…my dyslexia hurts!

Updated and bumped to top:Awright, awright...there's just too much going on here, and it somehow all feels connected, but as you folks know, I am a tad dyslexic and when lots of similar things present themselves, I tend to get confused and lose track. I once taught religion to a class of 22 kids, which included two blonde girls, one Stacey, one Tracy. The whole year I never could keep them straight, poor things.SO - I'm going to just throw these things at you, because they seem to all be … [Read more...]

9/11 Transcripts, Read and Remember

The Fire Department on Friday released thousands of pages of oral histories recorded by firefighters about Sept. 11 and hours of radio transmissions, a vast mine of records that evoked anew the chaos and horror of the attack."Somebody yelled something was falling," firefighter Maureen McArdle-Schulman recalled. "We didn't know if it was desks coming out. It turned out it was people coming out, and they started coming out one after the other.""I felt like I was intruding on a sacrament," she … [Read more...]
