"I'm so fucking rich..." That quote goes with that photo.
I was just listening to a tape of Bush stating that on 9/11 before he walked in the room he saw the first plane hit and then said "as a pilot I thought that was bad flying" then he said he went into the room and sat down and was told about the second plane. he thought it was an accident the first time. You see, whats funny about that was that I thought the same thing also along with everyone else who watched the terrible events that day. But the difference was is that I did not have presidential daily briefings given to me every morning talking about Bin Laden striking in the US.
Anyone who have never read that briefing,would believe that first crash was an accident
Like we did. When the president was asked did he read it, he said he did not remember. but he thinks so. When Condi was asked did she give the pdb to the president, she said she could not remember but she read it and it was filled with historical information nothing new. Whats coming up next I heard the day after 9/11. This was on the news,you see the only person that knew it was an attack with the first plane was also the same person who prepared the documents and that mans name was George Tenent. You see my point is that it was ok for us to think it was a bad pilot flying with the first hit,because we do not read the pdb's. But the president whose job is to read those everyday thought it was an accident too. Hmmmm interesting. I am providing a link to that particular pdb read it for yourself.

I just thought I would drop you a line. In case you're wondering why crude oil prices are down from last year, hanging around at about $60 a barrel, while gasoline prices have soared past $3.10/gallon nationwide, just check out the latest profit
reports from the oil companies. They are at record levels. The answer for this seeming contradiction is simple: Americans are being robbed blind by the oil industry.Sure, the oil companies, and their PR agency will give you all kinds of reasons for higher gasoline prices at a time of falling crude prices: problems at two refineries in Texas and Oklahoma, rising demand or whatever.
But the real answer is that there is simply no competitive market in this industry.
The three remaining oil companies are so tight, they don't have to get together to conspire to raise prices. One raises prices, the second follows suit, then the third raises prices even higher, so the first robber-barons raise the price again and the second follows suit again. Hey but do not worry, we deserve it!
Folks please bear with me for a moment. We just caught 6 men plotting to kill US soldiers in Fort Dix Newjersey. Hmm so much for the we fight them over there so we won't fight them over here bullsh*t.Oh yeah look for republicans to play this one up real big. Why is it that our president plays into the hands of Al Qaeda. Okay bear with me again, he always tells us that we should listen to the terrorists every word ...remember that? Now there was a tape just released starring Bin ladens good friend second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri.
In the videotape, Zawahiri claims al-Qaeda’s regret that Congress might force an American military withdrawal and thus “deprive us of the opportunity to destroy the American forces which we have caught in an historic trap.”
Zawahiri also said that, "We ask Allah that they only get out after losing 200,000-300,000 killed, so that we give the blood spillers in Washington and Europe an unforgettable lesson to motivate them to review their entire doctrinal and moral system.". Ok does this sound like they want troop withdrawal? It sounds like the terrorist wants us too stay. Bush says heed the words of the enemy ..ok what about those words? Just a few excerpts here for you regarding how Bush does not listen to the terrorists and is always at odds with them.
For instance, intercepted communiqués dating from the last half of 2005 revealed that al-Qaeda feared that a prompt U.S. military withdrawal would lead to the collapse of its operations in Iraq and that “prolonging the war is in our interest.”
U.S. intelligence analysts also were keyed into al-Qaeda’s use of reverse psychology, for instance, when Osama bin Laden released a videotape on the Friday before Election 2004 denouncing Bush and thus giving the President a boost in the final days of the campaign.
Privately, CIA analysts concluded that bin Laden wanted Bush to get a second term so his blunderbuss “war on terror” could continue for another four years and thus help al-Qaeda recruit more young terrorists.
Bin Laden denouncing Bush before the election was like Brer Rabbit begging not to be thrown into the briar patch when that was exactly where he wanted to go. [See Consortiumnews.com’s “Giving Osama What He Really Wants.”]
Bush – and the major Washington news media – largely have ignored the revelations about al-Qaeda’s private goals and focused on its public comments baiting the United States to depart Iraq in humiliation or the group’s boasts about plans to build a new Islamic “caliphate.”
But Zawahiri’s latest comments present a new challenge because his sarcastic wish for the United States to remain in Iraq until hundreds of thousands of American troops are killed dovetails more with al-Qaeda's internal strategy than previous public statements have. In other words, instead of just baiting the United States to leave, he is also baiting the U.S. to stay.
So, given Zawahiri's contradictory messages, should Washington heed al-Qaeda’s words and stay in Iraq or should Washington heed al-Qaeda’s words and leave Iraq?
Another question, of course, could be: Why should the world’s sole superpower tie its decision-making to the ranting – public or private – of a ragtag band of homicidal maniacs, especially when U.S. intelligence has concluded that al-Qaeda is trying to play mind games on the American people and their leaders?
