mr. spelunkism_fluxcapacitor:

being a native pittsburgher, i feel it is my duty to apologize for the change in dennis miller's attitude. you see, i ALWAYS GOT all of his arcane literary references and his "common sense" sort of ranting comedy used to make me laugh sooooo hard. We don't really know who that is in the mask hosting the "dennis miller show" on MSNBC (cue peacock), however, my pet theory is that the monkey is really him and the one who looks like miller is really the monkey.

you know, one of those tricky "brain-exchange" electronical experiments.

dennis, if you're reading this, please come home. we love you, we really love you.

/don't mean to get into a rant ...

Hey, get it RIGHT, asshole. The Neoconservatives didn't just "deal with" Ahmed Chalabi, they along with Bush, tried to make him president of Iraq. That is above and beyond the call of "dealing with".

With that said, here's a source:

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/02/politics/02CHAL.html?position=&hp=&pagewant ed=print&position=

The F.B.I. has opened an espionage investigation seeking to determine exactly what information Mr. Chalabi turned over to the Iranians as well as who told Mr. Chalabi that the Iranian code had been broken, government officials said. The inquiry, still in an early phase, is focused on a very small number of people who were close to Mr. Chalabi and also had access to the highly restricted information about the Iran code.

Some of the people the F.B.I. expects to interview are civilians at the Pentagon who were among Mr. Chalabi's strongest supporters and served as his main point of contact with the government, the officials said. So far, no one has been accused of any wrongdoing.

Call it incompetence or call it treason. I'll leave you to decide.

It should have been clear from the very beginning that Ahmed Chalabi was a sleazeball who did not deserve U.S. support. He was convicted for embezzling millions of dollars in Jordan. CIA and the State Department knew his defectors were dubious but the Bush Administration and Neoconservatives chosed to ignore all the uncertainties and discepencies. The Iranian espionage is just the coup de grace. This guy was always corrupt to the core.

I'm replying to your post from waaaaay up in the thread I had not seen. I'll keep it eloquent since you seem to be catching lots of flak.

we can at least keep the discussion to factual and/or relevant issues.

The AWOL thing has been played to death with little actual evidence on either side.
- In times of war, I believe this is a very relevant issue. This man is the Commander in Chief of our Army and it would be nice to know that he served his duty as any other American would have had to. Though it has not been confirmed he went AWOL, all evidence shows that this was the case (mainly, testimony from his superiors and own military records).

As far as being a cokehead, well, Prohibition tends to make criminals of ordinary citizens. Just ask Clinton. - Well, put it this way. Would you hire a cokehead to watch your children? How about to run your country? I fail to see how Clinton needs to come into this conversation.

I'm not too hot on Clinton, I'm just wondering.

We're going to go back to reading 101, and the original post


This is absolutely incredible news. Iran is a fundamentalist nation with an ACTIVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM. The Bush Administration and Neoconservatives actively helped their agenda while falsely proclaiming that Saddam had WMD and destabilizing the region. This is so incompetent, it is really damn close to treason.


Hmmm, might one of Iran's "agenda" points include getting rid of Saddam? Was the bush administration active in getting rid of Saddam? Was much of the intelligence we used apparently faked, or at least exagerated by the aforementioned Chalabi?

Sure it is, and if there's strong positive evidence, share it. Until then, there's plenty other reasons to come down on Bush that at least have the benefit of being verifiable.

Well, put it this way. Would you hire a cokehead to watch your children? How about to run your country? I fail to see how Clinton needs to come into this conversation.

Because Clinton was a pothead, at least by the terms of the War on Some People With Certain Drugs. Personally, I don't give a shiat that Bush snorted coke and Clinton smoked the reefer. Not my concern - they were both adults, and neither act hurt anyone else. The point is that it's the _same_ people who gave Clinton a pass on pot that are bashing Bush on coke. It's just not an isssue.

You want an issue? Stick to the trashing of our Constitution - something that, previously, the Dems had a pretty good monopoly on. Now it's a bipartisan issue, which makes me want to opt out of the two-party system. You can't have my guns, and you can't have my freedom. Piss off.

Beating a dead horse (I do that from time to time) I find that the period you claimed for the picture (July 15-18, 1993), Sen. John Kerry was meeting with lobbyists right in the middle of that period, in Washington, on July 16, 1993.

July 16, 1993 - meeting in Senate office with Craig Barrett, Intel; Bill Spencer (LDA), Semi-Tech; Larry Sumney, Semi Conductor Research Corps; John Kelly (LDA), IBM, Bill Siegle, Advanced Micro Devices; and Clark McFadden (LDA), Dewey, Ballentine.

"Giuliani, who was widely praised for his response after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, has said he may return to elective politics as early as 2006 either by running for governor, should Republican George Pataki call it quits after three terms, or for the Senate against Democratic incumbent Hillary Rodham Clinton." -only good part of the article.

I'm not sure if anyone has pointed this out, but outdated Vietnam era jets (so make them Korean war jets, as they were outdated already when Bush learned to fly em) weren't exactly the safest thing in the world.

Maybe they were safer than living in the bush with the viet-cong, sure... but I would NEVER call a fighter pilot cowardly.

So who do YOU think the drunk official was? You're right, probably only one Neoconservative gave Chalabi that intelligence. However, they all have been promoting the guy since he fled Jordan. IMHO, it was the passing of Chalabi's phony WMD stories to the American public as gospel that was the real betrayal of our trust. Was it treason? I don't know. But it in David Kay's words, it certainly looks like "a lack of due dilligence".

You're missing the point. It wasn't a just war at all, and it polarized the country at least as much as the war in Iraq.

Here's an example: say Rumsfeld comes up with the "Islam Domino theory" and basically starts a bunch of ME wars to spread democracy.

Say we start a draft because we're running out of soldiers in our all volunteer army.

If you disagree with this war, what do you do? Do your "duty" in what you believe is an illegal war in the first place? What about the fact that "I was just following orders" is no longer an excuse soldiers may use. Soldiers aren't supposed to follow what they believe to be illegal orders. Should you willingly let yourself get shipped off to an illegal war?

Clinton went to Canada. Bush joined the Air National Guard. Kerry joined the Navy.

Why is this an issue at all?

The Chalabi story has numerous chapters with many a plot twist. Getting to the bottom of this enormous manure pile is going to take some extensive digging, IMHO. I haven't checked up on it lately, but it sounded like Chalabi was trying to blame his head of security for the Iran leak initially.

Who blabbed? We may never know. I very much hope that we do find out regardless of any political persuasion.

I'd do my duty, and have a unit of tard mercenaries shipped off as my proxy. I figure that if Billy Bob Thorton's tard character in Slingblade could kill, and Packs of Feral Tards can kill, then I could whip a unit of them into shape for war.

Sure, they're probably lousy about following orders, but I bet if you give them all enough caffeine and airdrop them into an enemy zone...

Except for one little thing: He wasn't a fighter pilot. He never flew in combat. John Travolta would be considered more of a fighter pilot than George W. Bush if just flying around in jets made you a fighter pilot.

Did you miss the check box on Bush's application that said "I don't want to serve overseas" and the statement on Kerry's application "I wish to serve in Viet Nam"?

It may not be a Kerry plus point, but it's definitely a Bush minus point, particularly for a guy who likes to dress up in flight suits and land on aircraft carriers.
