Investors Pull Out of Markets

"The weekly report on claims for jobless benefits showed the lines of the newly-unemployed grew by about 5,000 people last week to 439,000 and the total number of people drawing benefits hit 3.8 million -- the highest in 20 years."

Great job on the economy, Dubs.

Bush Knew Iraq Info Was False!
WASHINGTON, July 10, 2003

"Senior administration officials tell CBS News the President’s mistaken claim that Iraq tried to buy uranium from Africa was included in his State
of the Union address -- despite objections from the CIA.

Before the speech was delivered, the portions dealing with Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction were checked with the CIA for accuracy, reports CBS
News National Security Correspondent David Martin.

CIA officials warned members of the President’s National Security Council staff the intelligence was not good enough to make the flat statement Iraq
tried to buy uranium from Africa.

The White House officials responded that a paper issued by the British government contained the unequivocal assertion: “Iraq has ... sought
significant quantities of uranium from Africa.” As long as the statement was attributed to British Intelligence, the White House officials argued,
it would be factually accurate. The CIA officials dropped their objections and that’s how it was delivered.

“The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa,” Mr. Bush said.

The statement was technically correct, since it accurately reflected the British paper. But the bottom line is the White House knowingly included
in a presidential address information its own CIA had explicitly warned might not be true."

That is true, unless your name is Bush and your Poppy has lots of bribe money and enough influence to get some other poor schlepp to take your place in Sacrifice alley. Greg Palast has uncovered another Bush family lie. Do these people EVER tell the truth about anything?

Watch the skies tonight!

GW Bush:
"There's going to be, you know, a lot of attempts to try to rewrite
history, and I can understand that. But I'm absolutely confident in
the decision I made."
Excerpt from this article

Bush now realizes how history will portray him. He's already defending a history which will someday prove him to be the President who tried to revise history first, the accuse others of doing it later.

``If U.S. forces are still there a year from now, individuals who suggest the United States is there for bad motives will feel more comfortable stirring up problems,'' said W. Andrew Terrill, research professor at the Carlisle, Pa.-based War College's Strategic Studies Institute.
