Truthout cops out

This was the day Truthout Executive Director Marc Ash promised a "more comprehensive accounting" of their claims of an indictment of Karl Rove back on May 13. What we got was more hyperbole, excuses and evasion.

Blotto blogosphere?

Alexander Cockburn has some withering words for the state of the so-called "blogosphere."
Unlike our coward-in-chief, Rep. John Murtha served his country in war. Unlike Vice President Dick Cheney, Murtha did not hide behind multiple deferments. And unlike Karl Rove, Murtha knows what war really means.

The truth about Iraq

Forget the lies that spill out of the White House like verbal diarrhea. You know, the ones that claim conditions in Iraq are improving. The U.S. Embassy in Iraq says otherwise.

A pardon for Libby?

A pardon in the works for indicted Cheney aide Lewis "Scooter" Libby? Could be. Writes Tom Brune in Newsday:
Now that top White House aide Karl Rove is off the hook in the CIA leak probe, President George W. Bush must weigh whether to pardon former vice presidential aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the only one indicted in the three-year investigation.
New York based freelancer Joe Lauria offers some disturbing insight into the behavior of ethically-challenged reporter Jason Leopold in the now-discredited Truthout story about the Karl Rove indictment that wasn't.

Damn right

Like us, Nevada Sen. Harry Reid is pretty damn pissed off at White House Press Secretary Tony Snow's callous disregard for the American military men and women killed in Iraq.
The Department of Homeland Security has this super-secret, secure "hotline" that is supposed to ring in the offices of the nation's governors only times of national emergencies. Only, nobody told that to the telemarketers.
Want to know what pedophiles who work for the Department of Homeland Security think of President George W. Bush. Not much, apparently.
The Army Corps. of Engineers lied outright to conceal Vice President Dick Cheney's direct involvement in the awarding of no-bid contracts to Halliburton, the company he headed as CEO before joining the Bush Administration.
