How far in to Bush's NK statement before he shifts blame to Clinton era?
It will be something along the line that "as far back as the nineties North Korea was developing a Nuuuclear capacity".. end quote

6. Yes, and Bush family friend, Washington Times owner, and
creepy religious cult leader, Rev. Sun Myung Moon was giving Kim Jong-Il buckets of money as far back as the nineties, too. Moon's dealings definitely need a little more sunshine.

An American Prospect investigation reveals that The Washington Times offices, housed in an imposing building on a northeast Washington strip otherwise known for tire shops and fast-food joints, serve as the base of operations for Moons diplomatic missions to his homeland. Moreover, the paper itself has served as an instrument of Moons partnership with the communist regime. Throughout the 1990s, as Western observers predicted that the Kim dynasty that rules North Korea would collapse for lack of hard currency reserves, the Moon organization invested tens of millions of dollars, which apparently included payments made before U.S. sanctions eased in 1999.

Yet Moon remains a Washington political powerhouse in his own right, a generous friend of the Bush family, and a patron of religious-right and other conservative causes. Now 85 years old, he oversees a secretive international empire of media, religious, real-estate, commercial, and industrial entities, as well as a shifting maze of front groups with far more names than leaders. Notable among these organizations is the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace (IIFWP), which has an office in The Washington Times building -- and has been repeatedly publicized in the newspapers pages.

Indeed, Moons relationship with the North Korean regime continues to expand today. He maintains a deluxe hotel in Pyongyang and is pursuing other ventures. Although he lost a long and costly bidding war with Hyundai to develop tourism in North Korea, the South Koreabased car company ceded to Moons people the right to build an automobile factory in Nampo, a city outside the capital where he has invested $55 million so far. He has also mounted an advertising campaign that has placed the first commercial billboards on North Korean soil.

Moons growing constellation of financial and political connections with North Korea -- an arrangement that would be impossible to imagine for any other newspaper publisher in America -- lend credence to critics who have long insisted that The Washington Times should register with the U.S. Justice Department as a political organ funded by foreign sources.

12. I think that's the way it will go.
1. The North Koreans just set off a nuke.

2. 9/11 TERRA TERRA TERRA mention Iraq so that the knuckleheads will believe they were involved.

3. Clinton's fault.

4. Vote for repukes, it's your only chance. And don't question the Unitary Executive.
