A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

DNC Press

Washington, DC - The conviction of former Cheney chief-of-staff Scooter Libby in regard to the leaking of a covert CIA agent's identity and the smearing of Bush Administration opponents has led to outrage across the country. Editorials call for Cheney and Bush advisor Karl Rove to resign their White House posts and for the President not to pardon Libby. Libby is highest-ranking White House official to be convicted of a felony since the Iran-Contra Affair.

BuzzFlash,

Yes, I was glad to see Libby convicted, but what about the crime of outing a CIA agent? If this whole episode regarding Libby was to be compared to the peeling of a giant onion ... Libby is just the outside skin and not anywhere near the heart of the matter.

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Peter Michaelson

The White House Correspondents Association must cancel its April 21 dinner if it's serious about atoning for its complicity in the American tragedy in Iraq. Guest-of-honor George W. Bush does not deserve such moral support as this dinner bestows upon him. And our democracy can't survive the media-government cronyism this event signifies.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

Don't cry for Scooter Libby -- cry for Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame, cry for those whose lives have been scarred by Libby and the rest of this cabal, aka George Bush and "his" administration! Cry for America and the damage we have and will suffer because of the lies Bush and Cheney told in order to wage war in Iraq. Cry for our soldiers in Iraq, cry for the innocent Iraqi people and their suffering. Cry for the fact that there are men sitting in the White House who are unscrupulous crooks who will do anything to further their desires to dominate the world. 

"I am very disappointed with the verdict."
(I'm glad Ted Wells isn't billing me.)
"I am saddened for Scooter and his family."
(Christ, my damn leg is killing me.)

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

The Center for Constitutional Rights

March 6, 2007, New York - Today the Center for Constitutional Rights issued a statement in response to the news that CCR's client, Majid Khan, one of the 14 so-called high value detainees at Guantánamo who were kept in secret CIA prisons and tortured before being transferred to Guantánamo in September 2006, would be brought before the Combatant Status Review Tribunal despite having been denied access to counsel:

BuzzFlash,

People are waiting because there are not enough employees to do the job. I wonder how many cuts have been to our post offices? We know the GOP has long been against this postal service. Another government agency that they would like to do away with. I know from my own experience that some dumbass is up there changing all kinds of policies. Such as, they don't accept checks anymore without a printed address, which is what I ran into when paying for my Post Office box rental. How stupid. I've had my checks printed that way for over 20 years and no one has ever refused one. Another new rule by some idiot who probably belongs to the Bush GOP.

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

Speaking of the Dark Ages, which just happened to be on the History Channel, people don't realize how easily empires can fall with the wrong leadership. Doom and gloom. And whether or not people want to admit it, under the Bush GOP, our democracy has been treated as if it were their empire.
