Customs was rolled into the Department of Homeland Security, so it wouldn't surprise me if people are slightly confused about their roles.

And now one of the recommendations of the 9/11 commission is to appoint someone over the FBI and CIA. The whole FBI looks inside, CIA looks outside thing (not that I believe that facade for a second) they just want to do that away too.

How long before each individual unit of intelligence and enforcement gets rolled into DHS? One large monolithic "piece of code" if you will. Yeah, that will run like a well oiled machine, fershure.

If we have terrorists bombing election posts all over the place, well, I guess that we have worse problems than who gets elected anyway.

This would set a dangerous precedent, based on fear and irrationality. I don't want to hear this bullshit.

Did the CIA infiltrate CONGRESS?

I've found this on 3 different news sources. Why ,though, is this not making bigger news?

Good intelligent debate now online. Howard Dean vrs Ralph Nader.

Just maybe a bit of a conflict of interest?

The Calgary Sun: Turns out peaceniks were the real patriots all along
Topic: Current Events 7:46 am EDT, Jun 23, 2004

I will NEVER understand why the book 'Sleeping with the Devil' was not more widely discussed by the media.

A lot of people did have questions, but none of them seemed to matter.

WE, as a country, seem to insist on lack of literacy in Congress.

The only thing they seem to want to read is the files they aren't supposed to on the Democrat's shared drives.

It should anger all of us, this Fahrenheit 9/11 film. In fact, Michael Moore's award-winning, irritatingly incisive expose of Bush Junior and his strike-first-and-ask-questions-never bully boys, should leave Calgarians particularly peeved, since it is a celluloid confirmation of betrayal by a president much loved in these parts. How hard it will be for some of us to finally confront the truth. Those who have been made fools.

After all, think back.

When Dubya decided to embark on his misadventure in Iraq, sentiment in this country from coast to coast to coast swung solidly against signing up with the coalition for the killing, cautious about a common cause that was righteous in rhetoric but murky in motives. At the time, precious little skepticism surfaced in Calgary, however.

A solid majority of this city's citizens, including the overwhelmingly-adored favourite sons Ralph Klein and Stephen Harper, were gung-ho Geronimo ready to send our forces into the firefight, semper fi, do-or-die. The good ol' U.S. of A. Their country, right or wrong. Let's twist those Iraqi wrists until they say Uncle ... Sam.

Only a few thousand stalwarts, activists like Noel Ainsley, took to the streets to sound the alarm, shocked but refusing to be awed by the promised pulverizing. They did nothing rude or radical, simply questioned the edicts of authority.

Where were those weapons of mass destruction? Did the Iraqis really pose a imminent threat to us? Why could we not wait for the UN inspectors to complete their mission, mere weeks? Where WAS this alleged link between 9/11 and Iraq?

If no link, and there isn't, then what was the real purpose of the war? Why were the swimming-in-oil Saudis not pursued, Saudi Arabia being home base to most of the hijackers and the big bucks of the bin Laden clan? Why did 9/11 itself somehow get lost in the shuffle, with no card ever assigned out of the famous deck?

Ask those questions last year around these hawkish environs and you'd bear the bull's-eye, targeted as a traitor, an appeaser, an anti-American, a peacenik, a wimp, a Saddam sympathizer, some sort of snot who would have rolled over for Hitler if you'd been born back before the Big One.

Iraqi Oil Pipeline is blown up

The POPE and Bush meet
Topic: Current Events 12:02 pm EDT, Jun  4, 2004

In this very short speech I see clearly that the Church struggles for increasing its power and influence.

I especially liked the fact that this oh so diplomatic pope includes a bit about Nancy Reagan - She has been an advocate of Stem Cell research which the church opposes.
