It’s Bush who owes America an apology. (graphics heavy, sorry)
Edited on Fri Nov-03-06 04:23 PM by Octafish
Quite a few of them. For starters…

The larcenous lout broke the law and his word using a GOP-packed Supreme Court to steal his way into the Oval Office.




The thieving turd cleared the regulatory road for his good buddy Kenny Boy Lay to rip off California and the nation’s utilities.




The greedy gangster did all he could to enable Tom Delay, Jack Abramoff, Grover Norquist, Ralph Reed and the rest of their K-Street Project money grubbers.




The treasonous tinhorn ignored warnings from the CIA and FBI and failed to protect the nation from the scion of his longtime BUSINESS partners, Osama bin Laden.




The un-recovered drunk ignored warnings of the experts and failed to protect the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast from Hurricane Katrina, failed to help them after the storm, then profited his cronies.




The sanctimonious shithead always could find time for a quick question from his buddy, the blatantly ultra-conservative White House Press Corpse member and undercover male “escort.”




The treasonous turd OUTTED a Non-Official Cover CIA agent specializing in stopping the spread of nuclear weapon to get back at her husband, a former U.S. Ambassador, who had determined the grounds for the war were lies.




The NAZI nutjob tortured men, women and children and even got a “Just Us” department finding stating it’s OK to crush a child’s testicles.




The frustrated Führer signed the dictator-enabling PATRIOT Act, burning the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.




The treasonous twerp got past his rubber-stamp Congress the abomination known as Military Commissions Act, helping end habeas corpus and bringing to the United States the kind of despotic states Henry Kissinger brought to South America and the kind of law of Operation CONDOR to the United States.




The demented dictator SPIED on loyal Americans, from Liberals to Quakers to women voters to those who just happen to be against the war.




The draft-dodging despot presided over the greatest strategic blunder in the nation’s history and who then had the temerity to call John F. Kerry—a genuine war hero—“disrespectful” to his fellow combat veterans.




And the biggest apology of all, the goose-stepping warmonger LIED America into a war with a country that was no threat to the United States.

33. To be honest
I don't think we'll invade Iran. We are already stretched thin, and the Democrats will soon take over the House and maybe even the Senate, although I think the fix is in for enough of the Republican senators that they will most likely continue in control. When the Dems take over the House, they'll start invesetigations into the corruption of this admin and that will stop any sabre-rattling by the neocons.

Know your BFEE: A Crime Line of Treason

Some DUers don't believe there's a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy or even a Bush Family Evil Empire.

Hey, I'm a Democrat and respect other's opinions and views.

But I do believe in the VRWC and BFEE, perhaps more accurately termed the Bush Transnational Criminal Enterprise. Here's why:

Bush Crime Line

• Vietnam
• Bay of Pigs
• Chile
• Watergate
• October Surprise
• El Salvador
• Reagan Survives Hinckley and Bush
• NAZI Ethnics for Reagan-Bush
• Voodoo Economics
• INSLAW/Promis
• Haiti
• Iraq-gate / Banca Nazionale del Lavoro arms to Saddam
• BCCI International Money Laundering for Terrorists & Intelligence Community arming Dr AQ Khan
• Savings & Loan scandal in general and Silverado in particular
• Iran-contra Guns/Drugs/Martial Law
• Gulf War I Glaspie Gives Go-Ahead
• Selection 2000 Shreds US Constitution
• Tax Cuts for UltraRich
• Criminal Justice Department
• Suicidal Environmental Policy
• ENRON Energy Policy
• 9-11 Criminal Negligence, at best; Treason, most likely
• Illegal Iraq Invasion
• Paperless Selection 2004

It’s interesting in reviewing the above list, just how much ultra-right, conservative Republican leadership has really been. More than a listing of criminality, the list demonstrates there have been many treasonous activites against “We the People” through “business opportunities” in the finance, energy, and defense industries.

There is one FAMILY name that runs through all the history, the four decades since the JFK administration. Since the very hour of President Kennedy’s death, and through the list of sinister events and unrelenting criminality noted above — a record of infamy stretching back 41 years today — appears the name George Herbert Walker Bush, a tradition continued by his son, George Walker Bush, beard of the BFEE.

SOURCE with LINKS and lots of related DUer info for above...

16. Ties to GOP Trumped Know-How Among Staff Sent to Rebuild Iraq
Thanks, Sydnie!

Hey! Remember this one, from The Backlash Cometh?



Ties to GOP Trumped Know-How Among Staff Sent to Rebuild Iraq

After the fall of Saddam Hussein's government in April 2003, the opportunity to participate in the U.S.-led effort to reconstruct Iraq attracted all manner of Americans -- restless professionals, Arabic-speaking academics, development specialists and war-zone adventurers. But before they could go to Baghdad, they had to get past Jim O'Beirne's office in the Pentagon.

To pass muster with O'Beirne, a political appointee who screens prospective political appointees for Defense Department posts, applicants didn't need to be experts in the Middle East or in post-conflict reconstruction. What seemed most important was loyalty to the Bush administration.

O'Beirne's staff posed blunt questions to some candidates about domestic politics: Did you vote for George W. Bush in 2000? Do you support the way the president is fighting the war on terror? Two people who sought jobs with the U.S. occupation authority said they were even asked their views on Roe v. Wade .

Many of those chosen by O'Beirne's office to work for the Coalition Provisional Authority, which ran Iraq's government from April 2003 to June 2004, lacked vital skills and experience. A 24-year-old who had never worked in finance -- but had applied for a White House job -- was sent to reopen Baghdad's stock exchange. The daughter of a prominent neoconservative commentator and a recent graduate from an evangelical university for home-schooled children were tapped to manage Iraq's $13 billion budget, even though they didn't have a background in accounting.

The decision to send the loyal and the willing instead of the best and the brightest is now regarded by many people involved in the 3 1/2 -year effort to stabilize and rebuild Iraq as one of the Bush administration's gravest errors...

And a bit more on Poppy's extramarital love life:

Bush's campaign manager, James Baker, forces the dismissal of Bush aide Jennifer Fitzgerald (NOT pictured above), described in a 1982 Time story as having "much to say about where Bush goes, what he does and whom he sees." Bush continues to pay Fitzgerald out of his own pocket.

24. Glad you asked, Karenina. Whatever happened to Mr. James R Bath?
From what people who know him say, he's not the bad guy. He's just been co-opted by the lesser angels of Arbusto.



Know your BFEE: James R Bath - Bush - bin Laden Link

Back when George W was defendin' Texas from the Air Force of North Vietnam, he met a man by the name of James R Bath. They both were drummed off the flight line for failing to take physical exams -- coincidently, I'm sure, right about the same time the government starting testing pilots for illegal drugs 'n' such. Here's the document:



Now this document shows that the House of bin Laden selected James R Bath to be their official U.S. business agent. Isn't it something? Why doesn't anyone in the press corpse ask Bush about this?

My sentiments, exactly:

Doing so would mean the end of the neo-cons.

The War to Deceive America Into War -- And the War to Cover Up the Deception

A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL


Before America went to war with Afghanistan, another war was underway -- against its own people: the war to deceive America into attacking Iraq. This is no longer a theory or conjecture; it is a documented fact.

Those in the Mainstream Media, including the New York Times and Washington Post, who choose to ignore this reality, or couch it in qualifying terms (such as "unproven assertions") are no longer trying to debunk a conspiracy, because the deliberate deception that forced America into war with Iraq is not a conspiracy theory.

SNIP...

Consider just some of the following established facts regarding the Bush administration's orchestrated propaganda campaign to deceive America into War:


1) A 2002 (Downing Street) memo is released in Britain in May of 2005 that documents that Blair thought that he had no choice but to go to war because the Bush administration said that it was "going to fix" intelligence to start one.

2) In early June of 2005, a British paper reveals that the U.S. and U.K. flew sorties over Iraq in 2002 to provoke Saddam Hussein and destroy his anti-aircraft infrastructure in preparation for the war. Congressman John Conyers calls this the smoking bullet in the smoking gun.

3) All the Bushevik warnings of WMDs are proven false -- all of them. Not a single WMD was found.

4) Dick Cheney lurked around the CIA prior to the Iraq War putting pressure on analysts to "fix" the data.

5) The analysts who came up with the false allegations that "aluminum tubes" were being used for nuclear enrichment story were promoted by the Bush Administration and given bonuses.

6) Richard Clarke says that Bush personally took him aside and told him to make the facts work for a war with Iraq.

7) Former Secretary of the Treasury O'Neill wrote in his memoirs that Bush was out to get Iraq from the moment he was sworn in.

8) The PNAC (Project for the New American Century) plea to invade Iraq was written in the late 90s, primarily by Bush Neo-cons who guided us into the war.

9) The Bush Administration outed Valerie Plame as a CIA operative specializing in -- ironically and tragically -- tracking the illicit sale and movement of Weapons of Mass Destruction because her courageous husband, Joe Wilson, exposed the Niger documents as a fraud. Thus, the Bush Administration put the national security at risk regarding WMDs to seek vengeance on someone for exposing their phony war based on a lie about WMDs.

10) This past weekend, it was revealed that John Bolton had a U.N. official fired for trying to seek a peaceful way out of the Iraq War, in regards to Iraq's compliance with chemical weapons accords.

11) After 9/11, Rumsfeld is quoted as saying that the U.S. would take Saddam and all of "them" out.

12) Advanced forces were sent into Iraq before the war had even started.

13) Rumsfeld set up a Pentagon psy-ops operation to create PR for going to war with Iraq. (He claimed to have closed it down, but he never did.)

14) The Chalabi-Judith Miller-Cheney axis of information was used to claim that created "factoids" were truths, when they were just propaganda. (The New York Times "apologized" for this, but made no changes in its coverage, including keeping Miller on and standing up for her, even though she published lies from a proxy Bush Administration anonymous source.)

15) The Bush Administration, according to various polls, conducted a successful misinformation campaign to make Americans believe that Saddam Hussein was partly responsible for 9/11 and that the hijackers were Iraqi.

32. Thanks, G_j. We've got good teachers on DU.
bobthedrummer, f'r instance:



Reality vs. perception management: the tinfoil controversy

There have been quite a few threads on the general topic of tinfoil or conspiracy theory.

The fact is that the neo-conservatives comprising the "shadow government" of the George W. Bush administration employ perception management.

The DOD Dictionary loosely links it to psychological operations (PSYOPS) as well as cover and deception.
http://www.au.af.mil/au/awc/awcgate/awc-pcep.htm#percep ...

The Rendon Group is a good example of perception management.

The bottom line is that the advocates of perception management don't give a damn about reality.
That's what we're up against.

Imo it's historical use by totalitarian regimes has led to a new form of fascism in our nation.

Any comments on perception management as practiced by the administration would be appreciated.

I'll be adding some additional links to this thread.

They (the shadow government) all lied to US and the world, that's going on 24/7.

Original DU thread with a big bag o' links 'n' stuff: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



You're a top-notch teacher, yourself, there G_j.

It's why we have these bed-wetting bastards on the run to Paraguay.

Despite the Fourth Reich and their BFEE toadies, we may yet prevail.

What's good is, unlike them, our only weapon has been the Truth.

Thank you for giving a damn.

34. Love you too, Bruddah!
It's November and our thoughts turn Dallas.



JFK was killed by War Party.

Those sick turds want more than anything to make money and gain power off of war.



They say it's not the killing part that gets them off. Then read what Libby wrote about big bears and little girls and you know they are truly twisted nutjobs to a man.

Regarding out nation's forgotten history:

During Vietnam:

Averell Harriman, business associate of Prescott Bush (a Senator, father and grandfather to the two presidents Bush), was the catalyst for America’s involvement in the disastrous Vietnam War. The historical record shows Harriman OK'd the assassination of South Vietnamese President Diem. America's right wing has long-tried to smear President John F. Kennedy for that murder.

Today, we can see it for what it was:

Harriman Bush Yakuza

Who changed the coup into the murder of Diem, Nhu and a Catholic priest?


From The Secret History of the CIA by Joseph Trento"

Who changed the coup into the murder of Diem, Nhu and a Catholic priest accompanying them? To this day, nothing has been found in government archives tying the killings to either John or Robert Kennedy. So how did the tools and talents developed by Bill Harvey for ZR/RIFLE and Operation MONGOOSE get exported to Vietnam? Kennedy immediately ordered (William R.) Corson to find out what had happened and who was responsible. The answer he came up with: “On instructions from Averell Harriman…. The orders that ended in the deaths of Diem and his brother originated with Harriman and were carried out by Henry Cabot Lodge’s own military assistant.”

Having served as ambassador to Moscow and governor of New York, W. Averell Harriman was in the middle of a long public career. In 1960, President-elect Kennedy appointed him ambassador-at-large, to operate “with the full confidence of the president and an intimate knowledge of all aspects of United States policy.” By 1963, according to Corson, Harriman was running “Vietnam without consulting the president or the attorney general.”

The president had begun to suspect that not everyone on his national security team was loyal. As Corson put it, “Kenny O’Donnell (JFK’s appointments secretary) was convinced that McGeorge Bundy, the national security advisor, was taking orders from Ambassador Averell Harriman and not the president. He was especially worried about Michael Forrestal, a young man on the White House staff who handled liaison on Vietnam with Harriman.”

At the heart of the murders was the sudden and strange recall of Saigon Station Chief Jocko Richardson and his replacement by a no-name team barely known to history. The key member was a Special Operations Army officer, John Michael Dunn, who took his orders, not from the normal CIA hierarchy but from Harriman and Forrestal.

According to Corson, “John Michael Dunn was known to be in touch with the coup plotters,” although Dunn’s role has never been made public. Corson believes that Richardson was removed so that Dunn, assigned to Ambassador Lodge for “special operations,” could act without hindrance.

It's an Associative Universe, as Dr. Vallee described. Please check out #32, Brud'.

For those just learning about the Bush Familyh Evil Empire:



If you don’t think the BFEE is capable of bombing our own -

-- then you haven’t read about what P2 did to the Bolgna train station or Operation NORTHWOODS.

P2 was a secret society dedicated to "fighting communism." Its members included government ministers, members of the military and church as well as assorted fascists and mafiosi. Not just in Italy, either, its honorary members included many in the United States. An excerpt from what appears to be a decent book review on the subject:

From the Egg to the Apples: The Combined Chronologies of the Strategy of Tension in Italy and of the Italian Section of the Situationist International

by Len Bracken

EXCERPT…

March 1979 -- Publication of On Terrorism and the State by Gianfranco Sanguinetti and the murder, Mafia-style, of Mino Pecorelli, publisher of OP. Pecorelli was scheduled to have an appointment for "dinner Licio" the night after his death - Licio being, quite probably, Gelli. The headline of the OP published a week before his death: "Assassinations, bombings, coup attempts - the shadow of freemasonry hovered over them all: from Piazza Fontana to the Occorsio murder, from the Borghese coup to kidnappings, to the flight of Sindona from Italy."

August 2, 1980 -- Bologna railway station bombing kills 85 and injures 200. 1988 conviction of right-wing terrorists for the crime is overturned in 1990.

January 1981 -- P2 Venerable Master Licio Gelli attends Ronald Reagan's inauguration. Gelli would later report that he spent the entire week with George Bush.

March 1981 -- P2 Venerable Master Licio Gelli's home is searched revealing that four cabinet ministers, three under-secretaries and 38 parliamentarians were P2 and helped precipitate the fall of the government of Arnaldo Forlani to appoint a Prime Minister who was not Christian Democrat for the first time since WWII.

CONTINUED…






NORTHWOODS was a strategy proposed by the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff to stage terrorist incidents involving American citizens, including hijacking airliners, to build public support for an invasion of Cuba. The plan was rejected by President John F. Kennedy who then fired the Chairman of the JCS. Here’s a very good overview:

OPERATION NORTHWOODS:

From BODY OF SECRETS, James Bamford, Doubleday, 2001, p.82 and following. Scanned and edited by NY Transfer News.

For those military officers who were sitting on the fence, the Kennedy administration's botched Bay of Pigs invasion was the last straw. "The Bay of Pigs fiasco broke the dike," said one report at the time. "President Kennedy was pilloried by the super patriots as a 'no-win' chief . . . The Far Right became a fount of proposals born of frustration and put forward in the name of anti-Communism. . . Active-duty commanders played host to anti-Communist seminars on their bases and attended or addressed Right-wing meetings elsewhere."

Although no one in Congress could have known it at the time, Lemnitzer and the Joint Chiefs had quietly slipped over the edge.

According to secret and long-hidden documents obtained for Body of Secrets, the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government. In the name of antiCommunism, they proposed launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba.

35. Octashark kicks the BFEE in the junk at every opportunity.
Greatest poster on DU. That's all there is to it.

The Commandant in Cheat owes every American citizen, soldier, mother and child several dozen apologies for bankrupting them, flipping them the bird while consuming the discretionary budget for his Black Gold Manifest Destiny, caring more about his cronies than his constituents and laying waste to our infrastructure, making us a house-of-cards debtor's prison candidate. It's like watching President Frank Drebin, only none of us are laughing.





We're disgusted with you.




Resign at once. For all of us.



You unfeeling pile of bison shit.

41. Your photos are the reason why we do what we do.
Life is too short, even for those lucky enough to reach the century mark.

I saw that image of the bereaved colonel way back when this all started.
His grief knows no bounds.
His countenance broke my heart.

If only the smirking sociopath could understand it.
Imagining that the Creator speaks to him gives him license to play Him.

Thanks for the kind words, HughBeaumont. I feel the same way about you and a whole bunch of our sisters and brothers on DU and across the Internets. It's why we continued the fight, even when the whole world was behind the crazy monkey.

We got a chance, my Friend. Thanks for giving a damn.

43. The History of the BFEE - in a graphic novel.
The Bush Junta: A Field Guide to Corruption in Government is an historical account of the high crimes and misdemeanors of the presidential administration of George W. Bush, as told by an international assemblage of world-class cartoonists. This fact-based, impeccably researched work of comics journalism chronicles the Bush administration in the context of the Bush family dynasty that spawned it. Topics include:

* The Nazi connections of the president's grandfather, Prescott Bush;
* The Bush family's membership in Yale's Skull and Bones Society;
* Former President George Bush's connections to the CIA, the Mafia, and Big Oil;
* His involvement in the October Surprise and Iran Contra scandals;
* The Bush family's strange relationship with the family of John Hinckley (the would-be assassin of President Ronald Reagan);
* The Panama Deception;
* The Persian Gulf War;
* The suspicious business practices of his Bush sons, particularly with regard to the Savings and Loan scandal of the 1980s;
* Young George W. Bush, his troubles with the law, his AWOL military record;
* George W.'s governorship of Texas;
* The electoral fraud of 2000 that resulted in his presidency;
* Unanswered questions about the terror attacks of September 11;
* The administration's "War on Terror" and its erosion of civil liberties under the Patriot Act and proposed Victory Act;
* The oil-based motives behind the Iraq War and how the public was deceived into supporting the war;
* The administration's shameful record on energy and the environment; and much more.

Also included are profiles of the key players in the current administration, a rogues gallery including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John Ashcroft, Condoleezza Rice, and Karl Rove.

Contributors to this historic comics documentary include: Alejandro Alvarez, Jaime Crespo, Kim Deitch, Jeremy Eaton, Bill Griffith, Scott Gilbert, Albo Helm, Ted Jouflas, Mark Landman, Carol Lay, Scott Marshall, Paul Mavrides, David Paleo Nunes, Ethan Persoff, Aleksandar Zograf, Larry Rodman, Spain Rodriguez, Marcel Ruyters, Kenneth Smith, Carol Swain, Seth Tobocman, Penny Van Horn, Mack White, and others.

This book distills all the known facts of the Bush regimes criminality in a journalistically accurate, artistically stylish, and utterly hilarious collection.


Octafish is the written word as an avalanche. We give a shit because it's our duty as Americans to do so. It's what all of us owe those crying families up there.

45. Failure Across All Fronts: A Contemptuous Indifference
Thanks, XanaDUer.

Here's some fuel for the fire from a friend:



A Contemptuous Indifference

Failure Across All Fronts


By RALPH NADER
November 4 / 5, 2006

The baying pack of belligerent draft dodgers--Messrs. Bush, Cheney and Limbaugh--were out in verbal force this week against John Kerry. The Senator miscued a joke about Bush by reading without the "us" in the line, "You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq. Just ask President Bush." The missing of the "us" word gave the messianic militarists an opening to demand that Kerry apologize to the U.S. troops for his "insulting" and "shameful" remarks.

Interesting isn't it, how a mis-reading of a word can be seen as cause for apology when thousands of illegal and destructive deeds and tortures constitute the Bush regime's "business as usual."

There will likely be no apologies from Bush/Cheney for putting U.S. soldiers into a fabricated war-quagmire--a disastrous, costly boomeranging invasion. But to set the record straight about who should apologize, here are on the ground reasons for nine Bush/Cheney mea culpas.

1. FAILURE TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE BODY ARMOR AND TRUCK ARMOR IN A TIMELY FASHION.

38. Yeah, "the treasonous turd" needs to
get down on his knees all right and beg for mercy from the People of The United States of America!

Thank you for this compilation of evidence that bush owes much more than an "apology".

We need that picture of bush and mccain eating cake while New Orleans was freakin' drowning.

Duke Cunningham already in prison for accepting bribes/gifts - Ney and Abramoff waiting to be sentenced. This alone speaks volumes about the Bush administration
