Man whose WMD lies led to 100,000 deaths confesses all
Defector tells how US officials 'sexed up' his fictions to make the case for 2003 invasion
As for his former boss: "I don't see any way on this earth that Secretary Powell doesn't feel almost a rage about Curveball and the way he was used in regards to that intelligence."
60 Minutes spent two years, and traveled to nine countries, trying to solve the mystery. We talked to intelligence sources, to people who knew Curve Ball and to people who worked with him. As correspondent Bob Simon reports, Curve Ball's real name has never been made public, nor has any video of him, until now.
How did Rafid Alwan become Curve Ball? 60 Minutes' investigation led us to Germany, where in November 1999, Alwan arrived by car and requested asylum at a refugee center outside Nuremberg. The 32-year-old told German intelligence that he was a chemical engineer in Saddam's Iraq, and that he had done so well in university he had been made director of a site at Djerf al Nadaf, just outside Baghdad. The Iraqis called it a "seed purification plant." In reality, he said, the place was secretly making mobile biological weapons.

Eyewitness to a Massacre
Philip Wells was a mixed-blood Sioux who served as an interpreter for the Army. He later recounted what he saw that Monday morning:
"I was interpreting for General Forsyth (Forsyth was actually a colonel) just before the battle of Wounded Knee, December 29, 1890. The captured Indians had been ordered to give up their arms, but Big Foot replied that his people had no arms. Forsyth said to me,'Tell Big Foot he says the Indians have no arms, yet yesterday they were well armed when they surrendered. He is deceiving me. Tell him he need have no fear in giving up his arms, as I wish to treat him kindly.' Big Foot replied,'They have no guns, except such as you have found.' Forsyth declared,'You are lying to me in return for my kindness.'

www.thehermitage.com/jackson-family/andrew-ja... the United States, Andrew Jackson's time as President marked a turning point in its history.... treaties forced on the various tribes and the actions of government officials. The Indian Removal process was completed two years after Jackson left ... the Trail of Tears is the most conspicuous blight on his presidential legacy.
Indian Removal Act
John Ross, a Cherokee Chief,
Lithographic & Print Colouring Establishment,
Prints and Photographs Division.
The Indian Removal Act was signed into law by Andrew Jackson on May 28, 1830, authorizing the president to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi in exchange for Indian lands within existing state borders. A few tribes went peacefully, but many resisted the relocation policy. During the fall and winter of 1838 and 1839, the Cherokees were forcibly moved west by the United States government. Approximately 4,000 Cherokees died on this forced march, which became known as the "Trail of Tears."

Herded UP like "animals" and sent on a "trail ride" ...
Like they used to DO cattle herds" ...
That's WHAT that American president DID!
WE got another one in there THAT IS WORSE!!!!!
Indian Removal Act of 1830
On May 26, 1830, the Indian Removal Act of 1830 was passed by the Twenty-First Congress of the United states of America. After four months of strong debate, Andrew Jackson signed the bill into law. Land greed was a big reason for the federal government's position on Indian removal. This desire for Indian lands was also abetted by the Indian hating mentallity that was peculiar to some American frontiersman.
This period of forcible removal first started with the Cherokee Indians in the state of Georgia.
Andrew Jackson: An American President
Jacksonian Democratic Party
The Democratic party and its program emerged in stages out of the largely personal following that had elected Andrew Jackson president in 1828. As progressively defined by Jackson during his two terms, the party's outlook was essentially laissez faire. Anointing themselves as Thomas Jefferson's true heirs, Democrats stood for simple, frugal, and unintrusive government. They opposed government spending and government favoritism, especially in the form of corporate charters for banks and other enterprises. They claimed that all such measures invariably aided the rich, the privileged, and the idleĖthe aristocracyĖagainst the humble yet meritorious ordinary working people.
Republicans ARE FOR the People
HISTORY PROVES IT!!!!
Free from Oppression
Republicans believe individuals, not government, can make the best decisions; all people are entitled to equal rights; and decisions are best made close to home. These basic principles are as true today as they were when the Party was founded. For all of the extraordinary leaders the Party has produced throughout its rich history, Republicans understand that everyday people in all 50 states and territories remain the heart and soul of our Party.
Presidents during most of the late nineteenth century and the early part of the twentieth century were Republicans. The White House was in Republican hands under Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
Under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, the United States won the Cold War, releasing millions from Communist oppression, in true anti-big government Republican spirit.
Elephants, Not Donkeys
The symbol of the Republican Party is the elephant. During the mid term elections in 1874, Democrats tried to scare voters into thinking President Ulysses S. Grant would seek to run for an unprecedented third term. Thomas Nast, a cartoonist for Harperís Weekly, depicted a Democratic donkey trying to scare a Republican elephant Ė and both symbols stuck. For a long time, Republicans have been known as the ďG.O.P.Ē with party faithful believing it meant the ďGrand Old Party.Ē But apparently the original meaning (in 1875) was ďgallant old party.Ē When automobiles were invented it also came to mean,ďget out and push.Ē Thatís still a pretty good slogan for Republicans who depend every campaign year on the hard work of hundreds of thousands of everyday volunteers to get out and vote and push people to support the causes of the Republican Party.
And he never blew up nary a thing did he? Do you ever do any research? ever??????????

~~~~~~~THEIR MISSION ***WAS***ACCOMPLISHED~~~~~~~~
1) We have difficult work -to do- in Iraq. We are bringing order to parts of that country that remain dangerous. We are pursuing and finding leaders of the old regime, who will be held to account for their crimes. We have begun the search for hidden chemical and biological weapons, and already know of hundreds of sites that will be investigated. We are helping to rebuild Iraq, where the dictator built palaces for himself, instead of hospitals and schools. And we will stand with the new leaders of Iraq as they establish a government of, by, and for the Iraqi people. The transition from dictatorship to democracy will take time, but it is worth every effort.
Our coalition will stay until our work is done. And then we will leave ó and we will leave behind a free Iraq.
2)Our mission -continues.- <<---<<<
Al-Qaida is wounded,- not destroyed.- <<---<<<
The scattered cells of the terrorist network still operate in many nations, and we know from daily intelligence that they continue to plot against free people.
3)The war on terror is -not over,- yet it is not endless.
We do not know the day of final victory, <<---<<<
but we have seen the turning of the tide. <<---<<<
No act of the terrorists will change our purpose, or weaken our resolve, or alter their fate. Their cause is lost. Free nations will press on to victory.
4)Other nations in history have fought in foreign lands and remained to occupy and exploit. Americans, following a battle, want nothing more than to return home. And that is your direction tonight.
After service in the Afghan and Iraqi theaters of war ó after 100,000 miles, on the ***longest carrier deployment in recent history ó*** you are homeward bound.***
Some of you will see new family members for the first time ó 150 babies were born while their fathers were on the Lincoln. Your families are proud of you, and your nation will welcome you.
5)Thank you for serving our country and our cause. May God bless you all, and may God continue to bless America. <3

YES!... There IS a "time for HATE!...
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
A Time for Everything
1There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heavenó
2A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
3A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
5A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
6A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
8A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.

God Set Eternity in the Heart of Man
11He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.

obay your leader.you,ll be ok.
man are you dumber than a sack of rocks, 8.5 million nazis couldn't be wrong now could they because they had more members than the other worker parties, 50.1% of this country support marxism and you see that as a win, we say again, you libotard are traitors to this country, does the information below sound familiar? probably not to a libotard, BAAAAAAAAAA
A Nazi is a member of the National Socialist Party in the years of 1929-1945 plus all those that were sympathisers/supporters/inform ants.
The number of members increased heavily from 1933 onwards because in the Dictatorship under Adolf Hitler, members got preferential treatment and many professions you could not get into if you were not a member.
Therefore some of the people in the Army/Navy/Airforce were Nazis, but not all, many bureaucrats and mayors, were Nazis, many teachers, entrepreneurs etc.
The general membership of the Nazi Party, known as the Parteimitglieder, mainly consisted of the urban and rural lower middle classes. 7% belonged to the upper class, another 7% were peasants, 35% were industrial workers and 51% were what can be described as middle class.
When it came to power in 1933, the Nazi Party had over 2 million members. Once in power, it attracted many more members and by the time of its dissolution it had 8.5 million members. Many of these were nominal members who joined for careerist reasons,but the party had an active membership of at least a million, including virtually all the holders of senior positions in the national government.
No, our form of government does not suck! The people we have in our government sucks! This is why I am a Constitutionalist-Tea Party member.

You didnít get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate
You didnít get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.
You didnít get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.
You didnít get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.
You didnít get mad when we spent over 600 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.
You didnít get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.
You didnít get mad when you found out we were torturing people.
You didnít get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.
You didnít get mad when we didnít catch Bin Laden.
You didnít get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.
You didnít get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.
You didnít get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.
You didnít get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.
You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all okay with you, but helping other AmericansÖoh hell no.

CIA Learned in '02 That Bin Laden Had No Iraq Ties, Report Says
The CIA learned in late September 2002 from a high-level member of Saddam Hussein's inner circle that Iraq had no past or present contact with Osama bin Laden and that the Iraqi leader considered bin Laden an enemy of the Baghdad regime, according to a recent Senate Intelligence Committee report.
Although President Bush and other senior administration officials were at that time regularly linking Hussein to al-Qaeda, the CIA's highly sensitive intelligence supporting the contrary view was apparently not passed on to the White House or senior Bush policymakers.
