IRAQ, Bush and Cheney Quagmire0 comments
Our sons made the ultimate sacrifice and we want answers. All we're asking is that he sacrifice an hour out of his five-week vacation to talk to us, before the next mother loses her son in Iraq. -- Cindy Sheehan, Camp Casey, Crawford, TexasSeems like Iraqis will be solving their own problems and heat on GOP will become intense. Now the Iraqis are demanding a timetable to troops withdrawal. It seems like it will really get worse for GOP before it will cool off. The media had been under fire especially Al-Jazeera by Blair and Bush and hopefully media is going to show their muscle as well. We know what role media has played in Nixon's Watergate scandal. I guess I was right in saying that anyone from media who tried to cover massacre in Iraq was punished in some how. Not only Al-Jazeera but Italians suffered too and some of the independent US media as well which was not embedded with the US troops. I guess this Al-Jazeera bombing, use of Phosphorus on Iraqi Civilians and call by Murtha will not be silenced easily.
Media is going to take this heat further. Recently, my local TV station showed a documentary "And Now This" the emphasis was "9/11 Omission Report:" Things that were deliberately left out of the 9/11 commission report. The documentary alleged that the commission was so called bipartisan as the commission was commanded by GOP favorites. Very, Very informative documentary! I will try to get a copy for my father in law who write newspaper columns.
Let's see which way the wind blows, only time will tell. It seems like the political wrangling is really getting ugly and dirty right now.
