BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

The truth hurts! It truly hurts the heart and saddens the mind to see what George Bush has done to our beloved America!!! "Leahy: 'The administration's secret policies have reduced America's standing around the world to one of the lowest points in our history.'"

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ALERT

On May 1, 2003, George W. Bush stood on a US aircraft carrier and declared "Mission Accomplished." Nearly four years and a few thousand American deaths later, Dick Cheney went aboard another aircraft carrier today to announce "we want to complete the mission."

A BUZZFLASH NEWS ANALYSIS

News of Britain's Iraq troop withdrawal comes just days after it was announced that Prince Harry might be deployed. Coincidence? Maybe, Maybe not.

Dear BuzzFlash,

A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Gary Handschumacher

"We have assumed the name of peacemaker, but we have been, by and large, unwilling to pay any significant price. And because we want peace with half a heart and half a life and will, the war of course, continues, because the waging of war, by its nature, is total, but the waging of peace, by our own cowardice, is partial.....We cry peace and cry peace and there is not peace. There is no peace because the making of peace is at least as costly as the making of war, at least as exigent, at least as disruptive, at least as liable to bring disgrace, prison, and death in its wake" [Daniel Berrigan, No Bars to Manhood, 1970]

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

"'I think that Donald Rumsfeld will go down in history as one of the worst secretaries of defense in history ...' McCain said." And you, John McCain, will be remembered as the most revolting suck-up in the world, history will show you will do and say anything to survive and run yet another presidential campaign!

This was a desperate stunt in the defense's misdirection gumbo
For closing. I bet that they'll drag in Matlock or perhaps Columbo.

A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

Rumsfeld came to Baghdad to shake hands with Saddam, even as the tortures and executions were going on. The Americans knew full well what kind of a tyrant they were dealing with, but they wanted him in their camp. -- Barry M. Lando, author of Web of Deceit

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

BuzzFlash,

"King, a highly paid model for postage stamps." -- Anonymous

Seven hundred and thirty-seven and counting, US military bases around the world? How to colonize the world without the pilgrims? What in the hell are we thinking? This is why so many Americans are without proper healthcare, education, and money that should go toward the common wealth of this nation. The money goes to other countries for the upkeep of US military bases, instead of to our own cities and towns here in the United States.
