I don't believe i gave a pass to the US govt for the results of the raining obtained at the school of the america's.

I simply stated that ploacing blame up the food chain could be percieved as giving a pass to those who actually did the deed.

I can show you modern murdering of nuns and priests by governments that the United States supported with domestic and military aid, including military training. In many cases the United States knew of the murders and continued to provide aid. Let's not get too high upon that horse my friend.

Not quite a legitimate comparison. The actions you described were not done directly by the US government.

The recent killing of the nun was done directly by militant islamists. For your analogy to work, Allah would be to blame for the actions by these same believers.

Is there something wrong with having Jewish blood?  Is that why he acted so riled up?  

Where do you get the idea he thought there was something wrong with having Jewish blood. He seemed riled by the question.

And what reporter questioned Albrechts heritage or for that matter Kerry's?

Far as i know he wasn't protesting Jewish blood. He was taken aback at the irrelevancy of the question. So was the audience.

Rightly so.

And Knute, behave yourself.

Nothing is locked in stone.

Anyboard was not going to work any more.

Feel free to look around and find the best forum software for our particular needs.

I would prefer it to be free or inexpensive and i would prefer it to use php and mysql.

Not sure why what he said was so bad.

Then again, i don't belong to a group that has had an inferiority complex for the last 500 years.

So maybe i'm just being insensitive to their perceptions.

Make note to start to work on empathy.

3DHS / common-sense variety of multiculturalism
« on: September 17, 2006, 09:04:50 PM »

AUSTRALIA'S Muslim leaders have been "read the riot act" over the need to denounce any links between Islam and terrorism.  The Howard Government's multicultural spokesman, Andrew Robb, yesterday told an audience of 100 imams who address Australia's mosques that these were tough times requiring great personal resolve.

Mr Robb also called on them to shun a victim mentality that branded any criticism as discrimination.

"We live in a world of terrorism where evil acts are being regularly perpetrated in the name of your faith," Mr Robb said at the Sydney conference

"And because it is your faith that is being invoked as justification for these evil acts, it is your problem

You can't wish it away, or ignore it, just because it has been caused by others
"Instead, speak up and condemn terrorism, defend your role in the way of life that we all share here in Australia."

We need more of this common-sense variety of multiculturalism.

How many lawsuits has she filed?

Seems she had filed one a while ago against Cheney, Libby, Bush and maybe Rove.

Guess they will come to trial right before the midterms.And i guess that is the goal.

The beat goes on.

Give it a try.

Might take some getting used to,  but it is more robust than the other forums and seems to be pretty fast.

Corn Denies Charge in 'WSJ' That He Outed Plame

By E&P Staff

Published: September 15, 2006 10:20 PM ET

NEW YORK David Corn, co-author with Michael Isikoff of the new book "Hubris" that has made so much news lately, today heatedly denied what he called an old and false charge in the Wall Street Journal that he -- not Robert Novak -- outed Valerie Plame as a CIA operative.

In the Journal on Friday, Victoria Toensing, the attorney, wrote in a column, "The first journalist to reveal Ms. Plame was 'covert' was David Corn, on July 16, 2003, two days after Mr. Novak's column. The latter never wrote, because he did not know and it was not so, that Ms. Plame was covert. However, Mr. Corn claimed Mr. Novak 'outed' her as an 'undercover CIA officer,' querying whether Bush officials blew 'the cover of a U.S. intelligence officer working covertly in...national security.' Was Mr. Corn subpoenaed? Did Mr. Fitzgerald subpoena Mr. Wilson to attest he had never revealed his wife's employment to anyone? If he had done so, he might have learned Mr. Corn's source."

On his Web site, Corn, the Washington editor of The Nation, writes that he has long been friendly with Toensing, and so, "I am disheartened to see her embracing a rather idiotic conservative talking point and ignoring basic facts to tag me as the true culprit in the outing of Valerie Plame Wilson. It is an argument that defies logic and the record. But it is an accusation that pro-Bush spinners have used to defend the true leakers and columnist Bob Novak, the conveyor of the leak.

"This is a canard that has been previously advanced by other conservatives--all to absolve Novak and the actual leakers (mainly Karl Rove and Scooter Libby, not Richard Armitage). And you see the suggestion: that Joe Wilson told me that his wife was an undercover CIA officer and that I then disclosed this information to the public. I've debunked this before. But for Toensing's benefit, I'll go through this again--though I doubt it will do much good."

The full explanation can be found at In a nutshell, Corn notes that Novak had already described Plame as a "CIA operative," which essentially means she was covert.

"At this point," he adds, "her cover--whatever it might have been--was blown to bits. The fact that Novak did not state she was a 'covert' operative is utterly meaningless. (Does the CIA employ non-secret 'operatives'?)"
