Bush failure allowed 9/11 attack

                Why Bush, Cheney and the Neocons Failed to Protect America from al-Qaeda's Vicious Attacks By Walter Uhler Urgency about regime change in Iraq, rather than urgency about intelligence indicating an imminent al-Qaeda attack explains the failure of Bush, Cheney and the neocons to adequately prepare for 9/11.   NYT: White House Didn't Stop 9/11 Because It Thought "Bin Laden Was Merely Pretending To Be Planning An Attack" By Washington's ...

    Also not a Pulitzer Prize nominee: Charles Gasparino of Fox Business By Bill Dedman Investigative Reporter, msnbc.com NEW YORK — If you're keeping a list of journalists who have claimed for years to be Pulitzer Prize nominees without the inconvenience of actually being nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, add one more name: Charles Gasparino, the pugnacious senior Wall Street correspondent for Fox Business Network.

More Romney lies

More Romney lies

        Mitt Romney’s claim of credit for the auto industry turnaround Posted by Glenn Kessler What should we do when a politician keeps repeating a Pinocchio-laden claim — or even makes its worse? We have examined previously the former Massachusetts governor’s claim that he set the course for the managed bankruptcy of the auto industry—and also have examined critically some of President Obama’s claims on the bailout. But clearly it’s time for a refresher ... Full Story

Keystone = higher gas prices

Keystone = higher gas prices

        Keystone Pipeline Means Dearer Gas, Few Jobs  By Jonathan Alter “I’ll get us that oil from Canada,” Mitt Romney said in his victory speech after the Michigan primary. He was referring to Keystone XL, the crude-oil pipeline that has become a top-tier campaign issue for Republicans. Problem is, the tar-sands oil in that pipeline wouldn’t be coming to “us.” It would go directly from Canada to refineries in the Gulf region en route to ... Full Story

Truth, lies and Afghanistan

Truth, lies and Afghanistan

Truth, lies and Afghanistan How military leaders have let us down By LT. COL. DANIEL L. DAVIS I spent last year in Afghanistan, visiting and talking with U.S. troops and their Afghan partners.

Biggest political lies of 2011

Biggest political lies of 2011

The Whoppers of 2011 The year's worst political deceptions, from both sides. Summary  Despite what you may have heard in 2011: The new health care law won’t cost many jobs (and they’ll be poorly paying jobs at that). Republicans aren’t proposing to “end” Medicare (and Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden has signed onto a modified version of the GOP plan). Most of the “millionaires” who would pay higher tax rates under a Democratic proposal aren’t job-creating small-business ... Full Story

The 14 Biggest Lies of 2011

The 14 Biggest Lies of 2011

                The 14 Biggest Lies of 2011 By David J Rothkopf I live in Washington where lying is an art form. Actually, that suggests an artist's intent and here in D.C., lying is more reflexive, like breathing or taking cash from fat cats. But when you live in a place like this -- if you can call it living -- where somehow we have managed to train moral mice to produce the shit of bulls, you really get an appreciation for a fine lie. Some stand out ... Full Story

When Did the GOP Lose Touch With Reality?

When Did the GOP Lose Touch With Reality?

          When Did the GOP Lose Touch With Reality? Some of my Republican friends ask if I’ve gone crazy. I say: Look in the mirror. By David Frum Published Nov 20, 2011 It’s a very strange experience to have your friends think you’ve gone crazy. Some will tell you so. Others will indulgently humor you. Still others will avoid you. More than a few will demand that the authorities do something to get you off the streets. During one unpleasant moment after I was ... Full Story

Pat Boone Misleads Seniors

        Pat Boone Misleads Seniors By Lori Robertson The same old claims about the federal health care law turn up once again in an ad featuring pop and gospel singer Pat Boone, the national spokesman for the conservative 60 Plus Association.

It attacks Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown, ... Full Story
