inbeded reporters began in the invasion of Grenada. SInce then the military machine has been in want of keeping tight raps on any 'inbeded' reporters story , or report if you will, by having it filtered before it is allowed to be in fact reported and filtered by those who 'dont want the folks back home' to hear anything other then the OFFICIAL story.

from Mr. Blumms article which has some bearing in all of this:;"December 16 ... I'm standing in the snow in front of the White House ... Standing with Veterans for Peace ... I'm only a veteran of standing in front of the White House; the first time was February 1965, handing out flyers against the war in Vietnam. I was working for the State Department at the time and my biggest fear was that someone from that noble institution would pass by and recognize me.

Five years later I was still protesting Vietnam, although long gone from the State Department. Then came Cambodia. And Laos. Soon, Nicaragua and El Salvador. Then Panama was the new great threat to America, to freedom and democracy and all things holy and decent, so it had to be bombed without mercy. Followed by the first war against the people of Iraq, and the 78-day bombing of Yugoslavia. Then the land of Afghanistan had rained down upon it depleted uranium, napalm, phosphorous bombs, and other witches' brews and weapons of the chemical dust; then Iraq again. And I've skipped a few. I think I hold the record for most times picketing the White House by a right-handed batter. "

We have left the tangled forest of the Joe Kennedy corruption era finally. Now let's clean up those history books by putting truth back into them.

LOL yeah right.

Lets reprint everything written about History pre 1933 again so those who think they can re write it are put to shame.

I dont like reading ANYTHING written after 1933.

Sometimes the best way to deal with unrully behaviour is not to give the misbehaviour the attention they desire.

Can we now leave the Bush crime family behind and maybe go arrest some of those rascals and crooks?

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Problem is, how can we trust the historians who wrote it in the first place?

No, I think self styled conservatives including all the thieves, grafters, mafiosi, liars, crooks, child molesters, bicycle seat sniffers, hypocrites, fools, drunks, perjurers, and slanderers. By the time we have them rounded up, tried, and locked away from decent people there will be so few left that the liberals will have to be saved for another day just so the government can continue to function. But, just relax, we'll get them later.

If there are any true conservatives they will be found to be thought of as liberals so the results may just be satisfactory enough that the purge can cease at that point, but, we'll see.

Because there are so many of those self styled conservatives just waiting for their just deserts.

As for the article in question the press has been the lap dog of the self styled conservatives for some years now. On the radio, the
TV, and in print there has been endless whining about the liberal press. Where do you hear about the liberal media or the liberal press? Well, obviously from the conservative media and the conservative press which is nearly all of it. As Chomsky said, "You have to be trained not to notice the obvious." The "liberal press" doesn't cover it because the "conservative press" doesn't want it covered. It's as simple as that.

You weave a twisted ball of yarn here. I like to keep it simple. Money, Ideology and Stupidity are at the root of political motivations. And not necessarily in that precise order.

Why is it they are our enemies? Is it because we want to make their women it pornography hoars like we have done to our women. Maybe we should look at ourselves.

Moderation in everything. Introspection is good but self-flagellation isn't.
