Helen Thomas mentions PNAC in her last Op-Ed >>>

Thomas: It's time for Rumsfeld and his cohorts to bow out
Helen Thomas
Hearst Newspapers


It's time for President Bush to shake up his cabinet, starting with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and some of his cohorts at the Pentagon who have made so many costly mistakes.
Let us count the ways, starting with Rumsfeld's braggadocio ''shock-and-awe'' approach to the disastrous war in Iraq.
Rumsfeld was a foremost adviser in urging President Bush to attack Iraq, using the 9/11 catastrophe as a catalyst, even though there was no involvement of Baghdad in the terrorist attack.
After that all systems were go.
Rumsfeld is a co-founder of the Project for the New American Century, which years ago put Iraq at the top of the neo-conservative agenda for future military action in the Middle East.

5. If only those in the media and press would continue to mention PNAC
More people will start questioning what the Hell has happened to our country in the last six years and what are the real facts about the BushCo years that they have not been told. It's all laid out for them in PNAC.

7. I'm sure that there's a special place in 'heaven' 9or whatever you believe
in) for people like Helen Thomas, Seymour Hersh, Paul Krugman, Chris Floyd, and all the others who, not worrying about themselves and how they might make their own personal lives safer or easier, honestly choose to be the 'truthtellers' in times as perilous and dicey as since 2000. They are the people who deserve thanks from all of us for fighting for our country when all the weaklings and weasles (Novak, Miller, Russert, and a host of others) sold out and went for the power and money. May they get the afterlife they deserve as well.

10. Recently, I had the pleasure of giving that dear woman a warm hug.
In spite of her recalcitrance, she is quite a sweet and gracious lady.

I hope her mention of PNAC instigates other RESPONSIBLE journalists to educate the public about that atrocious, anti-democracy, anti-American-values plan. It's about damn time the people hold knowledge and understanding about precisely what the neoconsters seek to do to them and the rest of the world.

23. When that punkass worm Potty McCluckin negates her
it confirms that we live in upside-down times and in a repeating opposite day.

27. Well, maybe she should have just kept her mouth shut about it then.
:sarcasm:

I'm sure she's said it before. The MSM printing it is another story.

30. She's not at all intimidated by the snotty nosed sniveling
goober who is bush's mouthpiece. Every time he tries to denigrate her, he looks smaller and smaller.

Thanks for your patriotism, Helen. :patriot:
