Jorge, you got some 'splainin' to do

Let's See the WH Get Itself Out of This One

It's getting scarier and scarier by the day as many suspicions come true. Americans really ought to get their heads out of the sand now and face reality. The Bush Cartel is a fraud and their main reason for taking office was to avenge Saddam Hussein for Bush War I. Bush neglected to go after Al Qaida from the get go as he was advised by the Clinton Administration and RIchard Clark the terrorism expert. It's becoming more and more apparent that 9/11 was allowed to happen in order to place this country into war, make Bush the war president and dictator of America and soon the world. This is scary stuff. The man goes to bed at 7:30 and doesn't read. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Today's articles.

NY Times Excerpt:But Senator Bob Graham, Democrat of Florida, who is a former chairman of the Intelligence Committee, barely let Mr. Clarke's appearance on CBS's "60 Minutes" end before he issued a scathing statement about the administration's record on terror.

"The facts are that within six months of the first bombs falling on Afghanistan, this administration was diverting military and intelligence resources to its planned war in Iraq, which allowed Al Qaeda to regenerate," said Mr. Graham, who was one of the first lawmakers to label the war with Iraq a distraction from the fight against terror. "As the people of Indonesia, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and most recently Spain have learned painfully well, this president failed to execute the real war on terrorism."

Washington Post Excerpt: During Bush's first week in office, Clarke asked urgently for a Cabinet-level meeting on al Qaeda. He did not get it -- or permission to brief the president directly on the threat -- for nearly eight months. When deputies to the Cabinet officials took up the subject in April, Clarke writes, the meeting "did not go well."

Deputy Defense Secretary Paul D. Wolfowitz, Clarke wrote, scowled and asked, "why we are beginning by talking about this one man, bin Laden." When Clarke told him no foe but al Qaeda "poses an immediate and serious threat to the United States," Wolfowitz is said to have replied that Iraqi terrorism posed "at least as much" of a danger. FBI and CIA representatives backed Clarke in saying they had no such evidence.

Boston Globe Excerpt: In the early weeks after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the Bush administration cut by nearly two-thirds an emergency request from the FBI for counterterrorism funds, an internal White House budget document indicates.

The document, dated Oct. 12, 2001, indicates that the FBI requested $1.5 billion in additional funds to enhance its counterterrorism efforts with the creation of 2,024 positions. But the White House Office of Management and Budget cut that request to $531 million. Attorney General John D. Ashcroft, working within the White House limits, cut the FBI's request for items such as computer networking and foreign language intercepts by half, reduced a cybersecurity request by three-quarters, and eliminated a request for "collaborative capabilities."

Americans better wake up and see this administration for what it is and what it always was!
