Chinking at last on Bush's armour
http://www.thestar.com/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename...

Now that three days have passed since the second anniversary of 9/11, I feel free to follow in U.S. President George W. Bush's footsteps: I, too, will exploit this tragedy to further my career.

Of course, the stakes are much different. Me, I just need column fodder. Him, he needs cannon fodder and to pick up his approval ratings.

Meanwhile the media, or at least some of the more powerful mainstream outlets, are in turn finally! picking holes in his armour, by starting to ask the questions that only those dismissed as "conspiracy theorists'' dared pose before. snip

What did the administration know about the impending 9/11 attacks and when did it know it? Why did the White House cover up the Environmental Protection Agency's findings on the toxins in the fallout at Ground Zero? What ties were there, if any, between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda?

If the U.S. media were to continue to do their job right, they'd point out that their current president is no leader, not if he continues to exhort his people to cower in terror.

2. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Another foreign press article proving American media whore Russert et al are in the GOP pocket.

Articles like this should overflow on all papers in the USA, but alas, nothing.
