Michael Moore Demands End Of Iraq Funding

From the despicable America-hater’s own site MichaelMoore.Com:

Cut and Run, the Only Brave Thing to Do

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Friends,

Monday marked the day that we had been in Iraq longer than we were in all of World War II.

That’s right. We were able to defeat all of Nazi Germany, Mussolini, and the entire Japanese empire in LESS time than it’s taken the world’s only superpower to secure the road from the airport to downtown Baghdad.

And we haven’t even done THAT. After 1,347 days, in the same time it took us to took us to sweep across North Africa, storm the beaches of Italy, conquer the South Pacific, and liberate all of Western Europe, we cannot, after over 3 and 1/2 years, even take over a single highway and protect ourselves from a homemade device of two tin cans placed in a pothole.

Webb: Reports Of Rude Exchange Bush’s Fault

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Webb, Bush off to shaky beginning

White House denies Sen.-elect’s claim of leaks after icy greeting

BY PETER HARDIN
Nov 30, 2006

WASHINGTON — Sen.-elect Jim Webb contends the Bush administration wants to paint him as a "hothead."

The former Navy secretary, whose election in Virginia put Democrats over the top in captur- ing the U.S. Senate, voiced that view yesterday.

A White House spokeswoman flatly denied Webb’s charge.

"That is not true. At all," said spokeswoman Dana Perino in an e-mail.

Webb confirmed published reports of an exchange at a private White House reception when he declined an invitation to be photographed with President Bush, and next declined to answer Bush’s question about his son stationed in Iraq.

He was told, Webb volunteered in an interview, that someone at the White House leaked a report of the episode, although he didn’t know if that was true.

Aide: Doctors Now Believe Gaidar Was Poisoned

Yegor Gaidar

Aide: Poisoning suspected in Gaidar case

Thu, Nov. 30, 2006

MOSCOW – Doctors treating former Russian Prime Minister Yegor Gaidar, who fell ill in Ireland last week, believe he was poisoned, an aide said Thursday.

"Doctors don’t see a natural reason for the poisoning and they have not been able to detect any natural substance known to them" in Gaidar’s body, spokesman Valery Natarov said. "So obviously we’re talking about poisoning (and) it was not natural poisoning."

Gaidar, 50, was feeling better Thursday, Natarov said.

"His condition is stable and improving. Doctors say there is no threat to his life at the moment," the aide said.

Gaidar, one of the leaders of a liberal opposition party who served briefly as prime minister in the 1990s under President Boris Yeltsin, began vomiting and fainted during a conference in Ireland on Nov.

Bush Adviser’s Memo Cites Doubts About Iraqi Leader

By MICHAEL R. GORDON
Published: November 29, 2006

WASHINGTON, Nov. 28 — A classified memorandum by President Bush’s national security adviser expressed serious doubts about whether Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki had the capacity to control the sectarian violence in Iraq and recommended that the United States take new steps to strengthen the Iraqi leader’s position.

Attacks in the Sadr City district of Baghdad killed at least 144 people and wounded hundreds on Thursday.

The Nov. 8 memo was prepared for Mr. Bush and his top deputies by Stephen J. Hadley, the national security adviser, and senior aides on the staff of the National Security Council after a trip by Mr.

Saudi’s May Intervene In Iraq If US Leaves Early

From the DNC’s in house organ, the Washington Post:

Saudi King Abdullah right talks with Vice President Dick Cheney, Saturday November 25, 2006.

Stepping Into Iraq

Saudi Arabia Will Protect Sunnis if the U.S. Leaves

By Nawaf Obaid
Wednesday, November 29, 2006; Page A23

In February 2003, a month before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, the Saudi foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, warned President Bush that he would be "solving one problem and creating five more" if he removed Saddam Hussein by force. Had Bush heeded his advice, Iraq would not now be on the brink of full-blown civil war and disintegration.

One hopes he won’t make the same mistake again by ignoring the counsel of Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States, Prince Turki al-Faisal, who said in a speech last month that "since America came into Iraq uninvited, it should not leave Iraq uninvited." If it does, one of the first consequences will be massive Saudi intervention to stop Iranian-backed Shiite militias from butchering Iraqi Sunnis.

Clinton Judge: Bush Can’t Say Who’s Terrorist

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

Judge strikes president’s authority to designate terrorist groups

LINDA DEUTSCH
11/28/2006

LOS ANGELES – A federal judge has ruled that a portion of a post-Sept. 11 executive order allowing President Bush to create a list of specially designated global terrorist groups is unconstitutionally vague.

U.S. District Judge Audrey Collins, in a Nov. 21 ruling released Tuesday, struck down the provision and enjoined the government from blocking the assets of two foreign groups which were placed on the list.

The ruling was praised by David Cole, a lawyer for the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Constitutional Rights.

"This law gave the president unfettered authority to create blacklists," he said. "It was reminiscent of the McCarthy era."

Charles Miller, a spokesman for the U.S.

Clinton-Appointed Judge: US Paper Money Illegal

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

Treasury ordered to make bills recognizable to blind people

11/28/2006 4:26 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) — By keeping all U.S. currency the same size and texture, the Treasury Department has denied blind people meaningful access to money, a federal judge said Tuesday.

U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman said the government has violated the law, and he ordered it to come up with ways for the blind to tell bills apart.

He said he wouldn’t tell Treasury officials how to fix the problem but ordered them to begin working on it within 10 days. The American Council of the Blind proposed several options, including printing bills of differing sizes.

Concerning such options, Friedman wrote, "The government has not sustained its burden of showing that any of them would be unduly burdensome."

The opinion came after a four-year legal fight.

Iran: US spies behind Iraq unrest

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s highest authority, has told the Iraqi president that the US is reponsible for Iraq’s unrest and said Iran is ready to help restore security.

He said: "The first step to resolve insecurity in Iraq is the withdrawal of the occupiers and handing over the security issues to the Iraqi government."

He also told Jalal Talabani: "US agents in the region are the middle men for implementing American policies and creating an insecure Iraq."

The US, however, has said that fighting in Iraq has been fuelled by Iranian weapons exports and its backing for Shia muslim groups.

Gaddafi’s Female Bodyguards In Trouble

Gaddafi in Nigeria airport drama

By Alex Last

Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi has been involved in a diplomatic incident as he arrived in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, for a summit.

Nigerian officials say Col Gaddafi was accompanied by more than 200 heavily armed Libyan bodyguards.

When security officers refused to allow them to keep their weapons, an argument ensued and Col Gaddafi stormed off.

Only when Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo intervened did the bodyguards agree to hand in their weapons.

Foreign ministers from Africa and Latin America have been preparing for the summit which gets under way on Thursday.

The size of Libya’s delegation was not a problem, it seems, just the sheer amount of weapons and ammunition they carried.

Minor Details In NYPD’s Shooting Of “Groom”

From the New York Post:

10 SECONDS OF HELL IN QUEENS

COP’S ‘FRIENDLY FIRE’ SPARKED BARRAGE THAT KILLED GROOM
By MURRAY WEISS

November 27, 2006 — A doomed young groom was caught in the crossfire of an undercover cop, whose bullets went clear through his car, and confused officers who returned their own blistering barrage, sources told The Post last night.

The blaze of gunfire lasted just 10 seconds outside the seedy Kalua Cabaret strip club in South Jamaica early Saturday. But it ended the life of 23-year-old, unarmed Queens dad Sean Bell, who was set to marry his high-school sweetheart and the mother of his two young daughters hours after his bachelor party at the club.

Dramatic new details of the deadly mayhem include the undercover cop at one point climbing onto the hood of Bell’s car – his gun drawn and his police shield around his neck – screaming, "Police!
