"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)
"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."
