CNN posting wrong headline.
CNN's website it posting "Tenet believed WMD case a 'slam dunk''. The freaking headline should be "Bush diverts 700 Million Dollars to develop secret Iraqi war plan. Congress in the Dark". Or, "Bandar sees war plan before Powell!!!!!!!!" Goood God Almighty.

1. ...patience, patience...

You know it takes mainstream press a while to catch up. Once the NYT and other news services start talking about it, CNN will follow the lead.

14. Believe me, I do.
but when Hubby and I wake up in the morning there are few choices (as we hang in bed w/ the TV - at least on Sundays). Also, when I hear of a breaking story here on DU, I go to the TV (how long will it take them?)

That Hardball guy's interview with the 'Jersey Girls' after Conndi's testimony was the best I've seen in the media since 9-11 (outside of a Nightline episode)

4. If you are expecting corporate pravda to report the truth..


you are going to lead avery unhealthy and pissed off life. Just stop watching the crap...it's just state sponsored corporate TV for Bush. Nothing else.

Every now and than they throw a little bone but than they spend the next week spinning it for Shrub. Fuck them. Time to make our own media.

12. And here's a passage from the first paragraph...


"But national security adviser Condoleezza Rice has disputed accusations made in the book including one that money was diverted from the fighting in Afghanistan to help plan for war in Iraq."

Ok, so she's disputing it. The fact is, that this story WILL GET OUT, and it WILL have legs.

16. Well,now that she's disputing it
That makes it fair game for an investigation.

In other words, show us the evidence it's not true. :)

8. You are absolutely right. These two facts are the most important
It's treasonous. Even Ann Coulter would have to say that! The media is going to totally ignore these two points.

9. The New York Times: White House Irked as Powell Airs Iraq Misgivings

White House Irked as Powell Airs Iraq Misgivings
By Steven R. Weisman

Washington, April 18 --
For more than a year, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and his aides have tacitly acknowledged that he was concerned before the war about what could go wrong once American forces captured Iraq.
But Mr. Powell's apparent decision to lay out his misgivings even more explicitly to the journalist Bob Woodward for a book has jolted the White House and aggravated long-festering tensions in the Bush cabinet. Moreover, some officials said, the book has created problems for the secretary inside the administration just as the situation in Iraq is deteriorating and President Bush is plunging into his re-election drive . . . .
That Mr. Bush comes across as sober-minded and resolute in the book, asking for contingency plans for a war soon after the Sept. 11 attacks but not deciding to wage one until the last minute, saves Mr. Powell from any immediate difficulties that might grow from seeming to betray his confidential relationship to a president who prizes loyalty, several officials said.

Read more.

That last sentence makes me wonder if Mr. Weisman was watching the same broadcast I did. Bush came off as a fool who asked question and then acted on less-than-convincing responses.

This is encouraging. Thanks
