the SLIMES of New York: "Whatever it takes...all the sleaze that is fit to print..."
Er, Jayson Blair wrote all of that. We have no idea what he was talking about.
wow !!! frickin great job!
WOW - this has to be one of the biggest finds ever!
BUMP! I just sent this out to my email list.
Then again maybe they're taking themselves down a peg at a time.
Even THEY can't get totally away with this s**t anymore.
Bush and Cheney are now taking them on DIRECTLY. HOORAY!!!
Nice b*tchslap of the Grey Whore. Flaming, lying, Clymers, the lot of them....
Oh, that is SOOOOO last century.
Both headlines are non-contrdictory. Remember that Saddam Hussein, who ruled Iraq in 1998, sits in jail in 2004. The Republic of Iraq today doesn't support terrorism; Saddam Hussein did.
I can only wish that was what the NYT reported

It is time for Punch and his slime ball editors to do the one honorable thing in their lives!
KITTY ENJOYS THE ONE HONORABLE THING DONE BY PUNCH AND THE NY SLIMES EDITORS.
Soooo, how is it that Holbrooke opposes the GWB moves (which were passed by both houses of Congress by huge majorities)? Because he's a lying liar, unlike the victims of Al Franken's latest POS.The Fog Of Invented FactsThe invented fact here is that Atta was on the CIA's watch list. Nor was he on any other government watch list prior to September 11th. Its repetition lays down a fog about the responsibility for the attack. For example, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, when lecturing at the JFK Library on Oct 4th, 2001, described the "law enforcement failure" of September 11th as follows:
by Edward Jay Epstein"To understand how bad it was, you need look no further than the specific movements of Mohammed Atta, who was probably the mastermind of these attacks, all of which has now been in the newspapers. The CIA put him on the watch list of most wanted terrorists in the world sometime in the early summer or late spring of this year... It is clear, therefore, that the FBI. and the FAA. don't talk to each other, that the FBI. never gave the watch list names to leading American airlines"
Missing Links FoundRemember how anti-liberation politicians and journalists pooh-poohed Colin Powell's February 2003 speech to the U.N. about the presence in Iraq of a Qaeda associate, identified in this space as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi? Powell's assertion had this "sensitive reporting" basis: "As of Oct. 2002 al Zarqawi was setting up sleeper cells in Baghdad to be activated in case of a U.S. occupation of the city." ...Feith's intelligence summary available to senators: "The Czech counterintelligence service reported that the Sept. 11 hijacker [Mohamed] Atta met with the former Iraqi intelligence chief in Prague, al Ani, on several occasions. During one of those meetings, al Ani ordered the IIS [Iraq Intelligence Service] finance officer to issue Atta funds from IIS financial holdings in the Prague office." ...Though the C.I.A. can confirm two Atta trips to Prague, in 1994 and 2000, it cannot confirm the two other visits the Czechs reported, including one on April 9, 2001, with Saddam's top European agent, al-Ani, then vice consul in Prague. C.I.A. chief George Tenet testified that the meeting reported by the Czech service was "possible," but the F.B.I. floated hints that car rental records showed Atta to be traveling between Virginia and Florida that week. Enter the writer Edward Jay Epstein in the liberal online journal Slate: "All these reports attributed to the FBI were, as it turns out, erroneous. There were no car rental records in Virginia, Florida, or anywhere else in April 2001 for Mohamed Atta, since he had not yet obtained his Florida license." You cannot rent a car without a driver's license.

We all know that the NY Times has an agenda. They aren't journalists, they are propagandists.
