Lies and Damned Lies

Today is Thursday, 29 June 2006.

"If you want to figure out what the terrorists are doing, you try to follow their money. And that's exactly what we're doing. And the fact that a newspaper disclosed it makes it harder to win this war on terror." --- Warlord W. Bush

Everyone from the Pretend-President to the most craven little member of the 82nd Division of the Cowardly Keyboardists is damning The New York Times for its 23 June article detailing the regime’s efforts to “follow the money” in an attempt to choke off funding for Al-Qaeda, et al.

Of course, back on 24 September 2001, an obscure organization calling itself “The White House” issued a Fact Sheet in the name of someone called “President George W. Bush” announcing, among other things, that “A Foreign Terrorist Asset Tracking Center (FTAT) is up and running. The FTAT is a multi-agency task force that will identify the network of terrorist funding and freeze assets before new acts of terrorism take place.”

[For press release, see this.]

Of course, those terrorists of the A-rab persuasion are so congenitally stupid that they’d never imagine someone might be trying to track their funding. After all, it’s well-known that they’re so dumb they couldn’t hit the broad side of one of the world’s tallest buildings with a large airliner.

(Thanks to for roundup of sources, this date. Check it out. Plenty more Bush regime statements alerting terrorists that the money was being watched where that one came from.)

One can only conclude that these attacks on The New York Times by the Bush regime and its minions are the result of yet more bad faith and willful deceit. They know that most Americans will never learn the fact that the regime had made no secret of its tracking of terrorist financing. They are masters of the constant smear and the Big Lie.

But, so long as the American people can wallow in gas-guzzlers and Gameboys, it seems the majority doesn’t mind being lied to, doesn’t mind their security being degraded by incompetents, doesn’t mind being made chumps.

Maybe they deserve what they get.

The tragedy is that so many others, so many innocents, are being harmed in the process.


The Washington Post today reports that the Bush regime is expected to announce the dismantling of the final W-56 nuclear warhead. An administrator of the program is quoted: "It takes anywhere from a few weeks to a month for each warhead if there are no problems … they are difficult to take apart because they were not designed to be dismantled."
