The Original American Malcontent

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

All Things Downing

So, I've been posting a lot about the Downing Street Memos and I'm not going to stop until we have a resolution.

MSM was hoping this would go away, hell they tried to make it go away, but now that it's out and 122 congress members and over 600,000 citizens have signed a petition requesting, no demanding answers - real answers, not the usual hemming and hawing our politicos usually employ, and not the non-laguange GWB employs to try to confuse the public. (of course he's just lying, but he doesn't have a very good command of the language, so it just comes out confusing)

Perhaps once this all comes out we'll find connections to the Anthrax attacks, which have been forgotten - why - because the evidence led to one lab, to one scientist and the outcome of those findings meant one thing - U.S. complicity - so they dropped it.

Now we have questions about 9/11 - there's a documentary called LOOSE CHANGE which talks about demolitions of the WTC. Subsequent explosions etc., that Bushes Cousin was in charge of security for WTC and United airlines etc. All manner of faked facts - like 7 of the 8 black boxes on the flights were damaged beyond the ability to retrieve the information - c'mon those are nigh the most indestructable things we make. They are designed for it.

How about how 11 of the 19 alleged hijackers are still alive and well. I've only heard clips from this thing, but it's fairly compelling and merits further research.

So, we have crimes committed and in any court of law you have to prove the intent to commit a crime, or a motive if you will. The motive and intent to commit crimes is documented in the memos of several neo-conservative think tanks and backed up by internal memos of the British itelligence agency MI-6 and I'll just bet if we could subpoena all related documents from the white house we would find that the threat to National Security is an imbedded domestic threat.

Just like Pearl Harbor, the Government was responsible for all of this.

p.s. my tin-foil hat is firmly affixed.

Why George Went To War
The Downing Street memos have brought into focus an essential question: on what basis did President George W. Bush decide to invade Iraq? The memos are a government-level confirmation of what has been long believed by so many: that the administration was hell-bent on invading Iraq and was simply looking for justification, valid or not.

Why The Memo Matters
[On May 16th, the New York Review of Books put the original Downing Street memo in print in this country for the first time. Mark Danner wrote the accompanying analysis, "The Secret Way to War." In response to that piece, John Walcott of Knight Ridder news service wrote a brief letter and Danner, in answering, has now taken the opportunity to return to the significance of the Downing Street memo and the press coverage of it.]

Relatives of Some Troops Killed in Iraq Seek Hearings on Downing Street MemoWashington - Several parents of soldiers killed in Iraq visited Capitol Hill on Wednesday to ask for congressional hearings on the Downing Street memo, which one mother called President Bush's "Watergate."

Downing Street Memo a Growing Problem for Bush
House Democrats opposed to the Iraq war came together Thursday to draw more public attention to the so-called "Downing Street Memo," the British government document that advised Prime Minister Tony Blair that President Bush was determined to invade Iraq nearly a year before the war was launched.

LONDON -- When Prime Minister Tony Blair's chief foreign policy adviser dined with Condoleezza Rice six months after Sept. 11, the U.S. national security adviser didn't want to discuss Osama bin Laden or al-Qaida. She wanted to talk about "regime change" in Iraq, setting the stage for the U.S.-led invasion more than a year later.
President Bush wanted Blair's support, but British officials worried the White House was rushing to war, according to a series of leaked secret Downing Street memos that have renewed questions and debate about Washington's motives for ousting Saddam Hussein.In one of the memos, British Foreign Office political director Peter Ricketts openly asks whether the Bush administration had a clear and compelling military reason for war."U.S. scrambling to establish a link between Iraq and al-Qaida is so far frankly unconvincing," Ricketts says in the memo. "For Iraq, 'regime change' does not stack up. It sounds like a grudge between Bush and Saddam."
