National News Roundup 3/21

Happy Primary Election Day in Illinois. Good luck! I just love the excitement of election day!

From The Washington Post: Even the
President's success stories about the war are failures. Old forecasts about the war have been proven completely and utterly wrong - our soldiers were greeted with IEDs, not flowers - big, BIG difference. FBI wouldn't let one of their agents get a warrant to question Moussaoui before 9/11. Maybe he shouldn't be the only one on trial. Chertoff's a smart guy, but the wrong one for the job. Isn't the cow already out of the barn on this one?

From The New York Times: You just had to know the
insurance companies would find a way into the terror business, right? Republicans pitch to firefighter's union: "We know we stink, but the Democrats are worse." Western states facing droughts and flood - those red states musta ticked God off BIG TIME.

From The Chicago Tribune:
Cook County will be testing new high tech voting machines. Taliban gone or are the fundamentalists in Afghanistan just using another name.

From USA Today: First developers surround
National Parks, then they buy them. Experts saying bird flu pandemic will reach the US this year - a pandemic for birds, not humans. Is this an attack on reproductive choice, or just an attack on women?

From Newsweek:
Sharon Stone's just a nutcase....but I know you guys love to look anyway.
NRSC is digging for dirt in Dixie. (Their headline, not mine) AIPAC: the murk clears up a wee bit.

From Time: Are the
Iraqi police the problem or the cure? The politics of fat - first our livingrooms, then our bedrooms and now the kitchen?

If anyone has any suggestions for other media sources to check periodically please leave them in the comments and I will add them to the list. I would welcome the change. Please go
here for original content. Thanks and check back tomorrow.

About the topic: Americans deserve the Truth, I wanted to ask whether now it is known to American people more information about photos's made by an Australian in Abu Graihid prison in Bagdad. I know there are the well-known ones which went all over the world and can't have missed to reach the American Press, but recently new ones arrived with information about the real resonsible officers and even highe up, Minister of Defense, Rumsfeld. The lower soldiers England and another one were sent to prison, for a short time though, but they obeyed orders and come both from a poor background and do not have much intelligence and wanted to cooperate. But their leaders told them to do it. The photos from Australia are much worse and some were not even printed off, too bad to show. The Pentagon tried to keep it all away from the main public. They sued and sued and wanted the photos to disappear.
I am not sure whether now the photos and Rumsfeld, Miller, and other high officers are being held responsible. Never saw anything in the Washington Post, neither in the New York Times and the Washington Post arrives here everyday (on line)and I read everything.
I think the American public should be aware of the war criminal Rumsfeld. Miller too, as he ordered to torture Quantanomo Bay prisoners, then was asked to come to Iraq to teach the guards in Abu Graihib prison how to get the Truth out, meaning torture and demeaning Muslim man to show their nakedness to a woman and do more things which she ordered. But she had to do that, but enjoyed doing it. Miller trained them all well, so I think he is a true war criminal. And Rumsfeld tops it all.

I've heard of other pictures surfacing in Australia, I believe. I haven't followed this closely because there is simply too much for one person to cover when it comes to corruption and lies in any government. Most of the people I interact with on a daily basis do not agree with any use of torture. There may be a fine line between acceptable and unacceptable and I believe we've crossed it many times.

The strongest way Americans can speak is at the polls and with some hard work we can make a change in our government in November. Thank you for your comment.
