Haider: George Bush is a war criminal

* for your sunday entertainment, here's a video of Blinky singing Sunday Bloody Sunday, and blinking.

* emptywheel questions the efficacy of TWOT. It's wrong to question. She should know better.

* the Independent disses the Sears Terrorist story, very politely.

* teemu points to Chertoff blabbing about SWIFT: "(It's the press) that's going to drive exactly the kind of insularity that the press claims they don't like.""
(teemu: "See, admin is eager to be open about its actions, but it's the nosy press that's preventing them...")

* via rimone, from june17:
"(Reuters) - Austrian right-wing populist Joerg Haider called President Bush a war criminal on Saturday, days before Austria's government hosts Bush and European leaders in Vienna.

Haider, whose group is part of Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel's government coalition, said Bush's meeting with his European peers on Wednesday was pointless as he did not expect the U.S. president to pay attention to what Europe had to tell him.

"He is a war criminal. He brought about the war against Iraq deliberately, with lies and falsehoods," Haider said in an interview with Austrian daily newspaper Die Presse.

"The Iraqi population is suffering terribly. Bush took the risk of an enormous number of victims," said Haider."

This and that:

Joerg Haider has a better understanding of GWB than most Americans do.

I was wondering w/n the administration was going to use with the word 'terrorists' in describing the black guys wishing to blow up the Sears Tower. Well, they aren't white, so that rules out 'criminals'. Besides that, 'criminals' can avail themselves of an entrapment defense, which might be appropriate from the early reports. Still, 'terrorists' within the U.S.? Are they trying to scare me or make me feel more secure? And how does one frame it now - 'we're fighting them over here so we don't have to fight them over...um, here.'(?) Loused up a perfectly good inanity, they have.

I was kind of expecting the first 'domestic terrorists' to be illegal Mexican immigrants.

And emptywheel questions the efficacy of (GWB's) TWOT??!! Oh my, the jokes are just dying to be released. But I will for once refuse to take that low road, other than to mention that I posted here once that I believed that she was heavily medicated.

Ok, so I lied.
