Is anyone watching Hardball?
Some Senator (I'm not sure who), just held up some memo which purports to be hard evidence that Saddam & Osama bin Ladin where in cahoots, from 1992.

Has anyone heard about this?

34. I noticed the 'Tweety'didn't ask if Bush was in the room when the prisoner
abuse and overcrowding were brought up by Powell and Bremer.

5. Goody. A repug that says Bush is a know-nothing, because * said there
was no connection.
Seriously, they are grasping at straws. Why doesn't he show it to Bush?

6. I am reading Richard Clarke's book right now....
Any connection between Saddam and UBL was put to bed a long time ago. THERE IS NOTHING. Except in the imaginations of freepers, faux watchers and neo-cons.

Kind of looked like when Powell was at UN and his pictures of warehouses full of WMD. Just WHERE did he get that report?

15. Yea, heard that, but Sen Nelson said"Jim we're supposed to be better than
that! Inhof kept saying...but we gotta win! Nelson brought up the Geneva convention. Looks to me like the Pubs have that shovel out again. OK, keep digging, yea, yea. Pretty soon you'll bury yourselves.

10. With no WMDs and the "liberation of the people" angle looking shaky
This looks to be the new justification: Saddam and Osama knew each other.

20. That's one of the most disturbing comments I've heard from these assholes.
If ever there were evidence of just how low and evil these republicans are, it was that exchange of words between Nelson and the scumbag from Oklahoma.

The Republican Party will suffer greatly for their complicity...

14. Is this that ancient Weekly Standard/NewsMax crap...
... that has been debunked time and time and time again?

Are they seriously trying to trot this garbage out again? As a distraction, I suppose? "Never mind the Iraqi torture photos... LOOK OVER HERE! LOOK!!"

19. How did you feel when comparing the guy from Aljazeera and Tweety?
Isn't the comparison embarrasing to us? Tweety really does sound like the bird and seems to have the same brain capacity.

22. Yeah
It's kinda sad that Al Jazeera is more independant from governments than US media.

23. Queen Noor now. Tweety asks why the real dirt poor people in
Latin America don't start terrorist attacks against the US but the Moslem people do?
This guy is so clueless.
Maybe we should tell the dirt poor latins to start doing it here (they do it in their countries to themselves) so that they can get attention?

27. Anyone Remember El Salvador & Nicaragua?
Hey Tweety...when brown-skinned Latin people rise up, your boy Bunnypants and his ilk shoot them down or make them "disappear".

The myopic nature of these hacks is astounding.

28. After the break, somebody that says Rumsfeld was asked
to investigate abuses a long time ago. Watch tweety try to debunk that.

29. Powell tried to get Rumsfeld to correct problems:
warned him (Robin Wright from Washington Post).
Three issues:
1)treatment of prisoners
2)conditions
3)thousands retained without charges

She did not know if Rumsfeld knew about the pictures.

Tweety: is Powell taking advantage of Rumsfeld while he is down? (how stupid is this question!)
Robin said no. It is just percolating now about Power trying to get something done about problems.
INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT IS GOING TO BE VERY DIFFICULT TO GET.
DIFFICULT IN TERMS OF FOREIGN POLICY OBJECTIVES.

32. Tweety: you have to get rough to get information (again with
this line! talking point)
It gets dirty.
Robin said problem is lack of understanding on the part of the US about what would happen after the Mission accomplished statement. No understanding of the country, the occupation, or the hate they are creating.
This is a Public Relations disaster.
parenthetically, I hope Inhofe's statements are published around the world.

35. I have a memo that says SH and OBL hate each others guts....
Same BS just turned back around.

Bush needs SOMETHING,ANYTHING to save this rapidly sinking ship so a memo suddenly appears tying the two together.

How fucking convenient can it get?!?!?
