My Weekly AMERICAblog Piece

The Week That Was 2/16/07

Another week, more preposterousness to report.

Ok, can we put aside the Bush junta-inspired mendacity eruptions (slightly different than Bill Clinton's "bimbo eruptions," in that mendacity eruptions actually end lives) to try and ignite war in Iran with those shady forces who are responsible for only 8% of the attacks on American soldiers in Iraq.

I know this will give the good Reverend John Hagee the kind of stiffy most of us could only pull off after a quart of Viagara mixed with Hillbilly Heroin--or as it is now known in bar-speak, a Limbaugh with a Haggard twist--but for the rest of us, can we shout from the rooftops "Enough with the fraudulent war justifications!"

Haven't we all learned from the last public relations rollout for a war of choice? Well, not David Brooks. But he's dumber than lead paint on Lindsay Lohan, so what he gurgles up out of his craven esophagus is of no consequence.

Yet, for those of us living in the strange land of lucidity, can we please all get this very simple message out before we experience Neocon Debacle II: Electric Boogalo

1) Over 90% of of the attacks that are killing U.S soldiers in Iraq are SUNNI inspired. They are, like, a whole different group of people than the Shia, Mr. Bush. And supported by your three-minutes-in-the-closet friends and financial benefactors the Saudis.

2) 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia, not Iran.

3) Bin Laden - yeah, Saudi not Iranian (and still at large, why is that?).

4) Say 'hi' to Bandar Bush for us.

5) Saudi Arabia, not Iran, was one of the three countries that recognized the Taliban-led government in Afghanistan--yeah that one.

6) Tell you brother to lay off the Thai hookers.

7) Saudi Arabia sought nuclear weapons, and may still be doing so.

So does all that compute Mr. Bush? Iran has some very bad men in their leadership, true. But they don't begin to compare to your friends, the Saudis. Not that you ever cared about going after the real enemy.

Oh, yeah, and it's "nuclear" moron.

I talked to a Texass truck driver not too long ago that was still plenty mad about all those Iraqis that flew those planes into the buildings on 9/11. *banging head on desk*

We should all be screaming it bert, and should have started when they trumped up the case against Iraq...

Me too is so damn frustrating. A failure of the media's to be sure. But also of Democrats who should have been yelling about this constantly on tv!

Of all the countries in the Middle East, Iraq had the least involvement in the 9/11 plot.

While 15 of the 19 were identified as Saudis, some of these folks are still alive -- meaning, their identities were stolen and used to conceal the plot.

PBS Frontline reported that the Pakistan ISI created Al Qaeda and the Taliban -- Frontline came within a whisker of connecting the dots, and saying the ISI was behind the attacks.

If you google "9/11 ISI" the evidence is clear -- General Gul, then head of the ISI, wired $100k to Mohammed Atta shortly before the attacks. He went on to become the head of the Pakistan opposition party, representing 1/2 the territory and 1/4 of the population. His base is the in the Pashtun North West Territories -- where Osama is probably hiding, beyond the reach of the government.

The Saudi Intel Services may also have been involved, but the ISI connection is clear.

So, if I comment on your CliffRant at ABlog, should I do what you do, and repost it here? ; )

Seriously, this needs to be said over and over. I hear it a lot from Randi Rhodes and a couple of others, but that's about it.

The next time you're on MSNBC or wherever, no matter what the subject is, work this in. Over and over and over.

The Saudis, the Jordanians and the Egyptians, oh my!

Big smooch, handsome.
