As with the AIPAC and Mossad penetration of the Pentagon, a similar ATC and Turkish intelligence penetration of the Defense Department was discovered.
- To no one's surprise, Havana has a distinct dislike for the administration of George W. Bush. In this op-ed from Cuba's Juventud Rebelde, the case for having Bush committed as insane is made using the latest polling data from AP-Ipso, which, the author writes, indicates that Bush's grasp of reality is in serious doubt.
- Independent democrats say Gallup's response is dishonest and the company is using a double standard when considering the nationwide poll run during the Clinton presidency.
- Defense Department Inspector General Joseph E. Schmitz told staffers this week that he intended to resign as of Sept. 9 to take a job with the parent company of Blackwater USA, a defense contractor.
- Forget the state ceremonies for the deceased Chief Justice. Just put a crease in the soil at Potter’s field and kick a few leaves over the hardening carcass. If it was up to me, Rehnquist would never be buried on American soil. The man betrayed his country and his name should be struck from the history books.
- The government is withholding more data than ever from the public and expanding ways of shrouding information. Last year, federal agencies spent a record $148 creating and storing new secrets for each $1 spent declassifying old secrets, a coalition of watchdog groups reported yesterday.
- The house, listed at $2.9 million, backs up in spectacular fashion to an inlet of the Chesapeake Bay. "Right out by [Defense Secretary Donald H.] Rumsfeld's," said Charles Mangold Sr., whose Benson & Mangold agency brokers high-end estates in the area. "It's under contract, but he hasn't settled yet."
- The CIA "Killer's Manual" "art' of assassination as if it was a mandatory college course.
- Douglas Feith, the recently resigned undersecretary of defense, who just happened to be one of the main people who for years on end advocated for a war in Iraq, and who in large part developed the disastrous policies for the war in Iraq, planned ahead for his retirement and will not be seen in the unemployment line.
- "The mafia and the CIA together were involved in the Kennedy assassination."
- A conservative German minister in a southern state has caused uproar by saying U.S. President George W. Bush should be "shot down" for his handling of the crisis in hurricane-struck New Orleans.
- ...the most interesting charge against Brown is that he helped speed up payments in Florida and purposely bypassed FEMA’s lengthy reviews process for distributing funds in order to help Bush secure votes in the state during last year’s presidential election.
- Ma Bush is typical of the inbred, filthy rich power elite who think they are superior to everyone else and have some divine right to rule the world by sacrificing the blood of the peasants' children in wars for empire.
- He is, after all, doing a simply beautiful job of kowtowing to his wealthiest supporters while slamming the poor and running the nation into a deep hole and creating the largest deficit in American history, all while his cronies in oil and industry and military supply and Big Energy gain immense and staggering wealth and pay less and less tax on it. This is what he was hired to do. This is why he is in office
- Cronies? The Clintons were the king and queen of cronyism. Remember their Chief of White House Personnel Security Craig "where the hell did those FBI files come from" Livingstone? His security experience entailed work as a bouncer at strip clubs and discos. I can only surmise why Bill Clinton felt obligated to a man with those security credentials.
- Another Bush family contrivance: The "assassination plot" against GHW Bush in Kuwait and a retaliatory attack on Saddam Hussein
- No question about it, it’s all about timing, and don’t they know it! It’s been going on for nearly five years now, and the Bushco folks have it down to an exact science. Just like all successful swindlers, they know exactly when the eyes and ears and minds of their marks are diverted. They time things perfectly and they know exactly when to swoop in for the kill.

- This could be the start of a good thing if we can get the father and paternal uncles and grandparents also arrested
- It is no surprise that the ascension of Roberts has been such an urgent priority for this administration. It is not just because Roberts facially resembles Bush, and echoes Bush's oily and arrogant smugness.
- Channel Ten interviewed real estate magnate Larry Silverstein in the building lobby after the dinner. He described Sharon as "extraordinary. The man is brilliant, enormous energy, great conviction, tremendous courage, and we applaud him for what he has done." Asked if Sharon thanked him for his contribution. Silverstein said, "No, but not necessary. We're here to support the man."
- We now come to the question of possible criminality on the part of leading members of the Bush Administration, including the President himself, and we have to examine what happened and which provisions apply to them.

- A grand jury indicted the Philadelphia archdiocese in a 418-page report detailing rampant pedophilia and sexual abuse as well as decades of well planned, sinister cover-up orchestrated by two Philadelphia cardinals, (the late) John Krol and (recently retired) Anthony Bevilacqua. Krol was and Bevilacqua is an outspoken critic of homosexuality and civil rights for gay and lesbian Americans.
- Victim was involved in business dispute with lobbyist when he was killed.
- Over the past five years the relationship between government and industry has been transformed.

- Dick Cheney recently had surgery on two aneurysms behind his knees, thus taking him out of the public spotlight more than is the usual case. The Soviet leadership, which the Bush administration has striven so much to emulate, used to exile their sacked leaders to dachas in the countryside. Might the same thing be in store for a Vice President named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the CIA leak case?
- The Judith Miller case doesn't make any more sense than it ever did.
