5-31-03 RED ALERT: Bush needs another 9/11 "The idea that the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked by a group of suicidal maniacs who envied our freedoms is beginning to wear thin. It wasn't the Al Qaeda that stonewalled any investigation into why this happened and then delivered the ultimate insult to victim families by appointing Henry Kissinger…to head up an investigation.

Israel's governments have mobilized the collective power of US Jewry—which dominates Congress and the media to a large degree—against them." Give yourself half a point for effort if you named Rep. Jim Moran, Pat Buchanan, Joe Sobran or any other well-known "anti-Semitic."

5-29-03 Bush administration avidly pro-WMDs—when it wields them "The Bush administration has been increasing its support for missile defense while dismantling the international arms-control regime both by withdrawing from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and by putting forth a new nuclear-war-fighting doctrine. Whereas Reagan left office saying that a nuclear war can never be won and must never be fought, two decades later, the word coming from the Bush administration is that nuclear weapons are here to stay."

5-27-03 Al-Qaeda arrests in Iran
5-27-03 The fictional war on terrorism "Stop squandering money and our civil rights on boneheaded data-mining schemes like Total Information Awareness…and recruit some old-fashioned spies to infiltrate extremist groups.
