  •  I remember being a bit concerned (4.00)
    when I read that Rummy was setting up his own intelligence dept in the DOD.  I thought why is he doing this?  Because he has control over the DOD.  So the DOD people are acting from orders from the top (Rummy, Cheney, Bush), and they are doing a lot of dirty work, now including trying to make sure the blame for their dirty work is shifted to the FBI. More and More control of every aspect of the govt from the top.  Dictatorship anyone?

    No election fraud in 2004 you say? Don't forget this video

      "I'm the commander -- see, I don't need to explain - I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being the president. Maybe somebody needs to explain to me why they say something, but I don't feel like I owe anybody an explanation." --George W Bush

      •  Damn, I knew there would be hell to pay (4.00)
        when we stopped teaching American Government.,

        "George, a president is not allowed have serfs!"
        "George, a president has two other partners for running the country. They are Congress and the Judiciary."
        "George, it says 'all [men] are created equal...' not just people who can afford it, and not just people who can outdraw everybody else."

    •  I remember "Shadow Government"... (4.00)
      and wonder why it's never mentioned.  As stealth as these guys are, WTF do they need more shadow for?  The thought of it gives me the creeps.

      •  Teddy Roosevelt also said... (none)
        Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknoledging no responsibility to the people.

        So this, unfortunately, is not a new revelation.

        •  Hmmm... (none)
          I wonder if I subliminally dropped the "w" from acknowledging above?
