Trust Us!

Have we ever let you down before?

I believe the title was, "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States."

Saddam has recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Niger.*
*Yeah, yeah, this was said by Bush in the SOTU, not Powell at the U.N. Powell talked about mobile biological weapons labs. I'm taking artistic license.

It's a slam dunk that Saddam has WMD.

We know exactly where the WMD are.

We will, in fact, be greeted as liberators.

This administration does not engage in torture.

I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees.

Suuuuurrrrrre, the UAE can run 6 major U.S. ports...what could possibly go wrong?

The Central Intelligence Agency did not target Al Qaeda chief Osama bin laden once as he had the royal family of the United Arab Emirates with him in Afghanistan, the agency's director, George Tenet, told the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks on the United States on Thursday.

Had the CIA targeted bin Laden, half the royal family would have been wiped out as well, he said.

Anybody can screw up -- what the hell, let's give 'em another chance!
"I want those who are questioning it to step up and explain why all of a sudden a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard than a Great British company," Mr. Bush said. "I am trying to conduct foreign policy now by saying to the people of the world, `We'll treat you fairly."'

"I can understand why some in Congress have raised questions about whether or
not our country will be less secure as a result of this transaction," the president said. "But they need to know that our government has looked at this issue and looked at it carefully."

"This is a company that has played by the rules, has been cooperative with the United States, from a country that's an ally on the war on terror, and it would send a terrible signal to friends and allies not to let this transaction go through."

"They ought to listen to what I have to say about this," the president said. "They'll look at the facts and understand the consequences of what they're going to do. But if they pass a law, I'll deal with it with a veto."
In other news, the check is in the mail.

Aren't these the clowns who warned us about smoking guns in the form of mushroom clouds?

This absolutely nails it: By declaring his intention to veto, Bush has just annihilated his own self-declared purpose as president.

Check out the kids page of the Dubai Ports World website, hosted by Captain Hamad. The Rude Pundit takes the tour.

Meanwhile, sources report the blind squirrel is still hoping to find a nut.
