right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

You might want to get a hold of Fremont, I understand she has bucket loads of Paxil.

Thanks for caring Joanie.......:)

Lewis is stepping down as editor this spring so it was fitting he wrote what he did--I haven't seen him but I have a $10 a year subscription to Harper's. The "Harpers Index" alone is worth the price.

this just in:

U.S. intelligence agencies repeatedly warned the White House beginning more than two years ago that the insurgency in Iraq had deep local roots, was likely to worsen and could lead to civil war, according to former senior intelligence officials who helped craft the reports.

Among the warnings, Knight Ridder has learned, was a major study, called a National Intelligence Estimate, completed in October 2003 that concluded that the insurgency was fueled by local conditions - not foreign terrorists- and drew strength from deep grievances, including the presence of U.S. troops.

The existence of the top-secret document, which was the subject of a bitter three-month debate among U.S. intelligence agencies, has not been previously disclosed to a wide public audience.

The reports received a cool reception from Bush administration policymakers at the White House and the office of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, according to the former officials, who discussed them publicly for the first time.

President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Rumsfeld and others continued to describe the insurgency as a containable threat, posed mainly by former supporters of Saddam Hussein, criminals and non-Iraqi terrorists - even as the U.S. intelligence community was warning otherwise [...]

In August 2003, with concerns about the insurgency growing, Bush told reporters: "There are some who feel like that the conditions are such that they can attack us there. My answer is bring them on. ... We've got the force necessary to deal with the security situation.".....
As recently as May 2005, Cheney told a television interviewer: "I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency."

Kudos for Knight Ridder. When I was watching CSpan, an author named Kristina Borgesson, "Feet to the Fire; the Media after 9-11" she said Knight Ridder was the only agency reporting the facts about Iraq but that at the time, they didn't have a media outlet in New York so it wasn't big news. They do have one now.

Still, the loyal Bush guys will still find a way to rationalize it all.

Sparky, are you an internet junkie?

perhaps.... :-)

Fremont

Thank you SO much for the Lapham link, Chris...I think he did an AA interview on Franken on Monday.
BTW, if you ARE depressed, Joanie, (it can be a manifestation of the psycho/sociopathy you researched in another thread), Slave said "You might want to get a hold of Fremont, I understand she has bucket loads of Paxil." It's true...I am loaded! The first one's free....

joanie

Thanks, Fremont! I'll be sure and keep you in mind. Nice to know I've got a connection . . .

Fremont

Vioxx, too, Joanie....it's ALL free...
