More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      •  I once designed a tool to do that. (none)
        Just the blade actually.

        Google "bung dropper".

        I gotta get some brochures for the product for when my daughter gets old enough to date.

        I'll explain to her suitors that this is what I did for a pretty small paycheck.

        Imagine what I could come up with if you hurt my little girl.

  •  George Callaway, MP (none)
    I happened to walk by a TV my mom had on MSNBC and George Callaway, MP gave the most concise rebuttal in the Senate committee investigating the Oil-for-Food program of anyone I've seen. He slammed the neocons and their selling of the war, the false hopes they gave, and the ability to create a smokescreen to cover their asses. Said (the truth) that everything he and the anti-war movement in England had said prior to the war was right, and everything the neocons and the admin said was a 'Pack of lies.' I'm suprised MSNBC didn't find a way to cut it off.
  •  His initial address to subcommittee was on CNN (none)
    They switched off after his address to an Alitalia air liner event.  Heh heh... they bumped off just when Norm Coleman was starting.  I wish we had some politicians with his gall here in the States.  He made me laugh a few times, and I almost thought I saw some reporters snicker in the background.  As it is, Fox is the only channel still covering it... FOX!
  •  Keep it coming (none)
    For those of us at work or do not have cable (me and me) give us the highlights. I can't watch it, but I at least want to read about it!

  •  the funniest thing about this all is (none)
    this

    The panels seem to agree that three-quarters of the oil Iraq was permitted to export under oil for food ended up in the United States, though U.S. firms directly purchased less than 1 percent of the crude.

    A new report from Democrats on the Senate subcommittee concludes the United States ended up with a majority of the oil lifted from Iraq after vendors paid illicit surcharges of 10 cents to 30 cents a barrel to Saddam.

    Of the $228 million in surcharged oil, the Democratic report found the United States imported 525 million barrels, or 52 percent of it. Among the biggest end users of this oil were Valero, Premcor, Alon USA, and Exxon, according to the report.

    But investigators found no evidence that U.S. companies "knowingly purchased Iraqi oil on which an illegal surcharge had been paid."

    of COURSE they had no idea what was going on...  never do..  just seem to make money
    guess if you believe the lie that saddaam was a terror supporter...  and most of the illegally sold oil ended up in the USofA  then those gas guzzling SUV's really WERE supporting terror eh???

  •  Anyone have C-Span (none)
    it's got to be on there.

    I can't get it, I have a job I have to pretend to do.

  •  I'm Rick James, Bitch!! (4.00)
    The MP came out made a very formal statement than bent Sen Coleman and the Bush adminstration over the table and did them all doggy style all the while telling the TRUTH about the war and the profiteering from american companies thus proving that he was indeed their DADDY!!!

    Tom DeLay is a slimy snake!! Frist is just a snake!! Dubya does not have the brains of a snake!!

  •  He has repeatedly charged the US with ... (none)
    ... launching an illegal war that killed over a hundred thousand Iraqis. He has also shown to the Oil for Food Program being infanticide masquerading as politics.

    He answers well for himself, and uses every opportunity to attack his questioners.

  •  I think this was a great blow-up for... (4.00)
    ... the Repubs.

    He was given a platform to voice views that rarely are heard. He attacked the credibility of the evidence of the sub-committee, he charged the US with an illegal war, he undercut many accusations against him, he was never flustered and he managed to come off strong against them.

    "Everything they have accused him of is based on a pack of lies."

    And he attacked America and Congress with crimes against Iraq and the world. He also compared his two meetings with Hussein with Rumsfeld's two meetings with Saddam.
    He condemned Saddam Hussein, and showed to the record of his previous charges against Hussein. He claimed that Rumsfeld was a lot more chummy with Saddam than he ever was.

  •  Where Can We Get The (none)
    video of this and the transcripts too?

    I am gonna frame this.  Not once in my life have I EVER heard anyone stand up to the neocon thugs like this.  Ever.

    He also said that - I believe - that American companies were profiting from Saddam and that the committe should look at them

    Could that be anyone but Halliburton?

    You can't always tell the truth because you don't always know the truth - but you can ALWAYS be honest.
