17. last night CBS Evening news with Bob Sheiffer...
at 6:30 eastern

It was VERY gratifying and there must be some "conected" pre$$titutes that are pretty steamed at them, too. They have SO been served!

23. and CNN-the part of the Pentagon conf carried till peanut allergies
trumped it.
I always like how they say, as they cut away, "We'll be closely following this ...(whatever).... " as they then go into 20 minutes of crap on shopping, peanut allergies, bird flu, missing women... all while I'm hoping they will just STFU and let me hear the last questions asked of Nutjob.

11. It's widely reported by American Soldiers..........
that when the fighting starts the Iraqis run away. One said that on any given morning, that out of the 700 Iraqi police that are to muster for duty perhaps only 100 or so will actually show up.
We're lied to by our "leaders" daily about the strength of Iraqi forces. They will never be able to take this fight on themselves, they lack the inspiration. As long as US troops are there to do the dirty work, they'll allow them to.
When the US does leave the country is going to fall back into total chaos with no command and control system in place.
Rummy can lie through his teeth and HOPE the American people buy the lies, but with the exception of bush's die-hard base, people have pretty much stopped believing the lies.
That Rumsfeld is still in charge of this war is a testimonial to the abject failure the bush administration has been throughout this misconceived exercise. Rummy the liar must go, but boy george is too vainglorious to take that action. They ALL must go!

13. Lies, all lies
It's really freaky to see someone in Rumfeld's capacity lie with a straight face. They really have no shame. Bush always says he doesn't pay attention to polls. Yeah, right......all of a sudden the Iraqi forces are making significant progress.

14. Listening to Rumsfeld`s lies
makes my skin crawl. Reminds me of the BS we heard during the Vietnam War. If the majority of their media did their jobs, Bush and the rest of his thugs would have been brought to their knees long ago.

16. How much clearer does this have to be?
As Lionel keeps asking, "What do I need to tell you?"

If every American could see this montage, surely some of them would notice that our Secretary of Defense is a lying sack of crap. Wouldn't they?

19. Oh Boy!.....Is this CBS payback?
Les Moonves the CHIEF of CBS is a Democrat who came out for Kerry he just hired Sean McManus a 10 year veteran of 60 minutes to produce the CBS evening news....he starts January 9th.
This tape is sooo damaging just before the presidents"exit strategy" speech today.....lies upon lies upon lies....
During the presidential debates Bush lied about the" 100,000" trained Irag forces as well.....i'd love to see a tape of that.

Thank you for posting this.
I will start to watch this news cast daily....if they plan on being this truthful and not afraid of "payback"

31. I've always loved CBS.....
Rather was good but Schieffer is even better. Bob won't make the same mistake Dan did.

Teflon Schieffer - good luck to * Co on trying to unseat him!

she might become disappeared. Maybe CBS might also be mistakenly bombed.

26. the blatant disrespect
Edited on Wed Nov-30-05 08:10 AM by DJ MEW
Does Rummsfield even know what is actually going on there. He status report conflicts with just about every bit of news that I have read in recent weeks.

What an asshole to assume that we don't know anything and can lead around by the nose like this.

Good job CBS, shame on you CNN

29. These Robber Barons Need to be Sacked
Rusmfeld, Rice, Chenney, Bush, etc. They have destroyed a country, bankrupting ours to steal oil and provide an optimal market for the military industrial complex. I wish it weren't true, but I see no other reason for this war. Who's safer? Who's prospering from this madness?

He needs to be held accountable (as does the whole "Administration") for what is being done to Iraq, the Iraqi People, and our Military...

35. Insert Biden ("Meet the Press") after "troop levels".
After Rummy claims "212,000 Iraqi trained and ready forces" you need Joe Biden from "Meet the Press" last Sunday contridicting that, saying "I just returned from Iraq on Memorial Day" and the number is closer to 700".

That assertion can't go unchallenged.

37. The truth to Rummy...
Odd how the truth to Rummy has absolutely nothing to do with the reality of the war in Iraq.

Good to see the reporter speaking the true realities.

I sent a supportive email to General Pace. It seemed small, but who knows?

This looks like the right place http://www.defenselink.mil/faq/comment.html

REPORTER:

"That's not a hypothetical, I don't believe - the Sunnis themselves are charging that hundreds have been assassinated, people shot in the head, found in alleys..."

RUMSFIELD:
"That's life..."
