terrorist insurgent population

* rimone:
"yesterday the preznit said 'By the way, the Japanese defense forces did a really good job when they were in Iraq. And they're able to leave because they did such a good job...'
....so Americans are sucking over there? nice to know."
* wapo:
"It seemed almost too much to hope for, but the Supreme Court finally called George W. Bush onto the carpet yesterday and asked him the obvious question: What part of "rule of law" do you not understand?
[]
the fundamental message is clear: Despite his outrageous claims of virtually unlimited presidential power, the self-proclaimed Decider doesn't get to decide everything."
* condi (overheard, in private):
"The problem is you have a terrorist insurgent population that is wreaking havoc on a hapless Iraqi civilian population that is trying to fight back. The implication that by somehow declaring that diplomats need to be protected, it will get better, I think, is simply not right."
i wonder if she calls them "a terrorist insurgent population" in public? probably not.

* nyt:
"The General Assembly budget committee lifted a cap on United Nations spending Wednesday night, thus averting a showdown that once threatened to shut down the organization's activities by the end of June.
The measure passed by consensus, without a vote, in the 191-nation committee, but the United States, Australia and Japan declared that they were officially "disassociating" themselves from the decision."
