Blair: History will forgive our WMD lies
Guardian | Submitted by: Bonny Fide
"Tony Blair last night used the rare opportunity of a historic address to the US Congress to declare that history would 'forgive' him even if no weapons of mass destruction are uncovered in Iraq. In a significant softening of Downing Street's stance on Iraq's banned weapons, the prime minister stood before hundreds of members of Congress to admit that he may eventually be proved wrong. 'Can we be sure that terrorism and weapons of mass destruction will join together? ... Let us say one thing. If we are wrong we will have destroyed a threat that, at its least, is responsible for inhuman carnage and suffering. That is something I am confident history will forgive.' ... But Mr Bush spoke in more confident terms about the hunt for weapons of mass destruction, declaring that they would be uncovered."

White House assfucks CIA agent over uranium hoax
The Nation | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Did senior Bush officials blow the cover of a US intelligence officer working covertly in a field of vital importance to national security -- and break the law -- in order to strike at a Bush administration critic and intimidate others? It sure looks that way, if conservative journalist Bob Novak can be trusted. ... Novak's July 14, 2003, column... contained the following sentences: 'Wilson never worked for the CIA, but his wife, Valerie Plame, is an Agency operative on weapons of mass destruction. Two senior administration officials told me Wilson's wife suggested sending him to Niger to investigate' the allegation. ... Under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982, it is a crime for anyone who has access to classified information to disclose intentionally information identifying a covert agent."

Red Cross returns donated body parts via FedEx
Austin-American Statesman | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"In a FedEx package came his son's corneas, packed in a preserving solution. In a cooler filled with dry ice Roberts found his son's femurs, kneecaps, hip bones and shoulder blades. His son's heart was in a jar. 'He'd been deboned like a piece of sausage,' Roberts said. 'Then to send everything back to you and hold up the funeral while you wait, it's unbelievable. I did not want them back. I emphatically said plenty of times that you can have those body parts if you will just give them to people.'"

AZ Central | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"The board said that in March 1999, Roper confronted patient Tricia Thompson in the waiting room after seeing that she had identified a female partner as her spouse on a 'get-acquainted card.'

US legal delegates in Iraq gagged by policy
USA Today | Submitted by: Katie
"Senior U.S. District Judge Gilbert Merritt said the 25-member delegation's hopes of assessing Baghdad's judicial and law enforcement institutions were hindered by the chaos in the city of 5 million people. Guerrilla warfare continues, water and electricity service are limited, police forces are barely functioning, and many courthouses are bombed-out shells, he and other members of the delegation said. But Merritt was particularly annoyed by the U.S. occupation authority's attempt to control information by limiting what his group and others involved in rebuilding said to the news media. ... members of his delegation were given a directive authorized by the chief U.S. administrator in Baghdad, Paul Bremer. It said all contact with the news media had to be cleared by top officials of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA)."

Pentagon will punish squealers in Iraq
New York Daily News | Submitted by: A. P. Palled
"The military will punish demoralized soldiers in Iraq who are bluntly venting their frustration to reporters, the Pentagon said yesterday. 'None of us that wear this uniform are free to say anything disparaging about the secretary of defense or the President of the United States,' said Gen. John Abizaid, head of Central Command. ... The Code of Military Justice bars officers from using 'contemptuous words' against civilian or military leaders. Punishment is rarely stringent, said military law expert Eugene Fidell. 'People always grumble in the trenches,' he said. 'Typically, administrations are extremely well advised not to throw gasoline on the fire by creating martyrs.'"

Mexicans implanted with ID chips
AZ Central | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Borrowing from technology for tracking pets, a U.S. company is selling microchips in Mexico that can be implanted under a person's skin and used to confirm health history and identity. The microchips, already available in the United States, could tap into a growing industry surrounding Mexico's criminal concerns. Kidnappings, robberies and fraud are common here, and Mexicans are constantly looking for ways to protect themselves against crime. ... Company officials said they are working on developing similar technology that would use satellites to help find people who may have been kidnapped." [What?!]

Bush wants doctors punished for suggesting pot
Wire Services | Submitted by: Jeff The Dude
"The Bush administration wants the Supreme Court's permission to strip prescription licenses from doctors who recommend marijuana to sick patients. ...

He said the ruling licenses doctors to treat patients with illegal drugs and that physicians who urge patients to use pot are no different than those recommending heroin or LSD."

AZ Central | Submitted by: dianalily

Orrin Hatch obliquely endorses Schwarzenegger
World Net Daily | Submitted by: waldo
"Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, says he did not do it for the 'Terminator,' but his proposed bill would allow foreign-born citizens such as actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to run for president of the United States. 'I believe the time has come to address the antiquated provision of the constitution that requires our president to be a natural-born citizen,' said Hatch, according to the Herald News of Fall River, Mass. 'It has long outlived its original purpose.'"

Republican gavel just too fast for Democratic objection
Washington Post | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Months of political tension in the House of Representatives erupted into open warfare today when Democrats stormed out of a Ways and Means Committee session and the panel's chairman called in the Capitol Police. ... When the Democrats left for the library, Rep. Fortney 'Pete' Stark (D-Calif.) stayed behind to prevent the Republicans from obtaining unanimous consent to dispense with the reading. After several minutes, Thomas again asked unanimous consent to dispense with the reading, and instantly brought down his gavel. Stark said later that he had objected, and Thomas had replied, 'You're too late.' Thomas then recognized Portman for an opening statement on the bill. Stark attempted to make a 'parliamentary inquiry,' and Thomas ignored him."

White House no longer accepting anonymous emails
Seattle Post-Intelligencer | Submitted by: kade
"In the past, to tell President Bush -- or at least those assigned to read his mail -- what was on your mind it was only necessary to sit down at a personal computer connected to the Internet and dash off an e-mail to president@whitehouse.gov. ... those who want to send a message to Bush must now navigate as many as nine Web pages and fill out a detailed form that starts by asking whether the message sender supports White House policy or differs with it. ... '[The new system] provides an additional means for individuals to inquire about policy issues at the White House and get a personalized response in 24 to 48 hours,' said Orr, the Internet news director at the White House. ... Having sent his e-mail message on Tuesday, Matzzie said he was still waiting for a response."
