Fox: Israeli propaganda, war mongers, no decency

* demnow:
"Two weeks ago, two producers working for Fox News in Amman Jordan resigned in protest of the network's coverage. In their resignation letter, Serene Sabbagh and Jomana Karadsheh wrote "We can no longer work with a news organization that claims to be fair and balanced when you are so far from that." They went on to write "Not only are you an instrument of the Bush White House, and Israeli propaganda, you are war mongers with no sense of decency, nor professionalism.""

* darksyde on anthrax, 2001:
" Someone[s] apparently got a hold of some of Uncle Sam's super-secret Anthrax stash and cultured it, weaponized it crudely, and started mailing the stuff out. They could have mailed a hundred letters, or maybe even a thousand for all we know. For that matter, the Anthrax spores could have been distributed in far less visible and considerably more effective ways, if the idea was to infect as many people as possible. Instead, it was mailed to a handful of precisely the kind of targets that guaranteed it would be quickly discovered and widely reported. Thoughts, plots, conspiracies?"
(don't forget my post on hatfil's involvement with the mysterious mobile weapons labs)

* amy:
"Lebanon is facing a massive rebuilding effort. On Tuesday, the Centre for Economic Research in Beirut said repair and reconstruction costs will rise above $7 billion dollars. The costliest repairs will be for Lebanon's roads and bridges. According to the Guardian of London, Israel bombed more than 94 roads and 70 bridges during its attack. At least 10,000 homes are believed to have been damaged or left in ruins. Last week, the Beirut Daily Star reported more than nine hundred small and medium-sized business were destroyed, causing an estimated $200 million dollars in damage."

People are finally donning tinfoil helmets. Good to see. There were two types of anthrax used in the attacks: a relatively harmless kind that went to Judy Miller and the Congressmen. And a very deady kind that went to people like Bob Stevens.

There were never good reasons to believe that bin Laden was behind the anthrax attacks of late 2001 since he would hardly attack such specific targets as the two leading congressional opponents of the Patriot Act.

Bob Stevens, a photo editor working for a Florida newspaper, was the first American to die in the 911 anthrax attacks. Bob's mistake was to publish an unflattering photograph of a drunken Jenna Bush, daughter of the President. (Osama's Xmas present to Bush? I think not.)

Osama would not have targetted these particular persons, nor is it likely he had access to this anthrax strain. So either there is another terrorist organisation out there we don't know about, a disturbed individual, or this is a US sponsored exercise. The evidence strongly supports the last case.

When all this comes out impeachment will be the least of these guys worries.

thanks for reminding me about Bob Stevens, Damien.

in truth, i'd rather each of the war criminals killed themselves first, and avoided a long, drawn-out costly trial. just sayin' as my Schadenfreude goes only so far.

then again, i think it would be fun to find out that the preznit fucked up his suicide and not once, but many times (e.g., 'ah din't know ah wuz spozed t' kick th' chair over'). let him be standing alone at Den Haag, lol. i wanna see him sweat and for once, not have that stupid smirk on his dumbass face.

lol, oopsy--i said the quiet part out loud again. must be the drugs. :-)
