    .

    Oh, yeah, now that the DailyKOS denizens all have access to their mommies' computers, you see all kinds of "neat" stuff:

    "Hey, look!! There's somebody having sex in school!! Heh-heh." (cue the Beavis and Butthead scenes).


    Everybody hates war. Except when they taste the bitter fruits of losing a war.

    Have suggested you spend sometime watching this excellent documentary, they interviewed over 4 K people for it.. very interesting who actually provided testimony for this documentary.. very interesting the power struggle between Rummy, Cheney and Powell.. also very interesting how Rumsfield started his own intelligence within the Pentagon.. a lot of it is concerning, particularly in Afghanistan when the Pentagon decided to start withdrawing troops when the spec forces and CIA were in Tora Bora.. do not watch it though, be content with your vile attempt at humor.

    If you think it's such a balls out movie, why aren't you down with Cindy Shehan, taking names and kicking azz of all the "evil" people, like Rumsfeld, Cheney, and your favorite man to hate: George W. Bush!!!????

    You always talk about "walking the walk", why aren't you doing it???

    All I am doing is suggesting that you watch this excellent documentary, but make your own choices.. it is far more balanced than you can imagine.. but keep thinking about how things work.. it is better than reality.

    With all due respect, I have seen what "Frontline" can do to spin an issue to suit their own political agenda. It's not rocket science. Anybody can cut and paste whatever they want to produce whatever message they want to produce. No big surprises, so I already know what this video will say. As you say, don't want to waste five minutes of my life, thanks.

    "Angry German kid" was a bigger internet hit, and it was also a fake.

    somehow Paul Bremmer, and General Tommy Franks are 'spinning' lefties now? Somehow Armitage is a left-wing loon?




    you peeps are insane.

    YOu waste your breath, assumptions have been made and they will not consider any viewing it, imo it was pretty well balanced and give a very interesting picture of how decisions were made.

    It was interesting to see the power struggle between Cheney and Tenet, Rummy and Powell. The CIA's war in Afghanistan and the pentagon's war in Iraq. Its interesting to listen to the poeple who crafted those decisions, the players who played and the fall guys.

    This was NOT a slanted piece, watch it and see how Cheney fukced you. All because he thought he and Rummy thought they could p!$$ further than Tenet and Powell, and how at the end of the day Dick Cheney had the presidents ear.

    pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.....

    You don't want to get it, do you??

    Anybody can find snippets of anybody saying just about anything. All anyone needs to do is splice together all those out-of-context snippets and VOILA!!! You got yourself a "Bowling for Columbine".

    No, thanks. I'll stick to the real, unmadeup world, thanks.

    Yeah, so go ahead and worship at the house of Front-line. Do it. Do NOT believe anything contrary to what Front-line says. EVER!!

    See where it gets you.

    Yeah, you too. Believe it. Bow down and kiss the ring of Front-line. Just don't come crying to me later.

    So I guess it is pretty safe to assume, that you are going to go by your assumptions based on a previous experience rather than try to find out what we are all talking about.. you are missing out on a great show, and there was a ton of information provided which was insightful.. it is your loss.

    Well, I consider it YOUR loss that you continue to desperately thrash about grasping at any straw in a vain attempt to show that "you" know what's best about America and America's future. Cut and paste to your heart's delight. Go ahead. Congratulate yourself again and again that you've got the "handle" on things. At least then you can feel good about yourself, though it may be hollow.
