Tuli Can't Stop Talking

These are just my thoughts on contemporary issues and an attempt to open up a dialogue.

Lies and the Lying Liars!

Not that most informed folks didn’t know, but it is now incontrovertible, the only place to find the Iraqi connection to terrorism and the WMD was in the heads of G.W. Bush, the NeoCons, and the media spin (especially Judith Miller). This gives a whole new meaning to NeoCon: we were conned.

Well, okay those who weren’t paying attention to the Weapons Inspectors, various Former Administration Members, and the VIPS, etc., were conned. That would of course mean the U.S. Congress, the Main Stream Media and a huge portion of the U.S. citizenry. In June 2003 Ray McGovern, of the VIPS, did an interview that laid it all out. Both Richard Clarke and Paul O’Neill said that this administration was geared toward regime change in Iraq before 9/11.

Was no one listening?

Now, the Sunday Times of London has broken the story with the leaked transcript of a meeting with Tony Blair and his Foreign Service cabal regarding the head of MI-6's recent meeting with the U.S. counterpart on the impending Iraqi War.

This brings me to the MSM. Since the breaking news, I did a little search of the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the L. A. Times, those liberal bastions, and guess what I found? I could not find an article about the “U.K. Bombshell Memo” which lays out the Bush Administrations plans for the Iraq War in July of 2002. I did find, however, one article by Knight Ridder ( addendum: today a rather bland, and 11 days later article by the LATimes).

The memo of July 23, 2002 states:

C reported on his recent talks in Washington. There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy. The NSC had no patience with the UN route and no enthusiasm for publishing material on the Iraqi regime's record. There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action.

And folks this isn't the worst of it. Check out the whole memo linked above. Especially the part that the whole campaign was geared to the midterm elections. Deplorable.

Now how can this possibly be? The Right-Wing constantly screams that the media is so Liberal and that the “real story” never gets out. Well, here is the “real story” that is not getting out and the Liberal media isn’t telling it. And it is a story that the RIGHT wouldn’t want out. So, how legitimate is this claim that the U. S. has a liberal media.

Not too legitimate it seems to me.

This is one of the biggest stories of the last five years. The U. S. government according to the U.K. government transcript planned to invade and declare war against a country on fabricated evidence. That strikes me as BIG NEWS!

Yet, our “Liberal Media” isn’t covering it.


Here is the email I sent to the New York Times:

Dear Folks:

Maybe I missed the articles on the UK Memo transcription about the meeting with Blair and his foreign policy circle regarding the impending Invasion of Iraq. The memo was from July 2002. Here is a link:


If I missed the articles, please let me know where I can find them.

However, a search of the site leaves me with no articles. Why do you suppose this bombshell hasn't appeared in the NY Times? Is it because of the "Liberal Bias?"

The fact that the U.S. Administration conspired with the U.K. to make the facts fit the policy is "News." The fact that you are not reporting it makes you appear to be part of the problem. Your new credibility project is being undermined as you employ it.

Why aren't you reporting the news? It appears that you are merely the scribes of this administration. Your job is to speak truth to power.

Not reporting the news is what is making you irrelevant!

I am appalled.

This is of course what the whole Bolton debacle is about. We have an administration operative who is bullying intelligence analysts to come up with the “right” intelligence, or else.

So it is not surprising that the Bush administration would want Bolton and see him as the right man to represent this administration at the United Nations.

He is one of theirs. He knows how it is done and does it, no matter what the facts or legalities. The policy of this administration is to “Fix” the intelligence to “Fit” the policy. Ray McGovern has written a cogent piece on what this policy is doing to our intelligence services. It isn’t a pretty picture.

As for the "Bombshell Memo", “A former senior U.S. official called it "an absolutely accurate description of what transpired" during the senior British intelligence officer's visit to Washington. He spoke on condition of anonymity.”

So, folks, we have all been lied to so that this country could engage in an illegal war. The troubling part is that the Main Stream Media doesn’t seem to find this NEWS, and therefore the American Public is uninformed as to what their Leaders are/and have lead us into.

What are we to do?

Eighty-eight House of Representative members have written to the President requesting answers to questions raised by these events. If the past is any indication of this administration's actions, there will be no response.

Once again, I am bereft.

I agree with Bob. Very nicely said...and needs to be said until attention in the media gets this to the front page of every paper, nationwide. I think big when something this big occurs, and like you,don't appreciate it being ignored in favor of the next scandal.
