    Wish we could afford to be tired of this.
    We could all end up working for the CEO of the world if we don't watch out. I am only partly kidding.
    Corporations are buying each other. What happens to free enterprise when the big corporations control the money, the market, and the government? Seems the "leaders" in the government are too in debt to the corporations.

    Shouldn't the President of the United States be sure of "facts" before stating them the American people in the State of the Union speech?
    Huh?

    WASHINGTON -- Defense
    Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said
    Wednesday the United States did
    not go to war with Iraq because of
    dramatic new evidence of banned
    weapons but because it saw existing
    information on Iraqi arms programs
    in a new light after the Sept. 11,
    2001 attacks.

    "The coalition did not act in Iraq
    because we had discovered
    dramatic new evidence of Iraq's
    pursuit" of weapons of mass
    destruction, Rumsfeld told the
    Senate Armed Services Committee.
    "We acted because we saw the
    evidence in a dramatic new light --
    through the prism of our experience
    on 9-11."

    Rumsfeld appeared before the
    committee a day after the White
    House acknowledged that President
    Bush's claim in his State of the
    Union speech that Iraq tried to buy
    uranium from Africa was based on forged information....

    ????? Is Mr. Bush scapegoating? Surely he isn't trying to pass the buck to his friend Tony Blair. That's not very nice, after all he sacrificed his political career to stand by Mr. Bush's side and this is the thanks he gets? Oh for shame, for shame.

    U.S. report on 9/11 to be 'explosive'
    Government errors, Saudi ties to terrorists among highlights
    BY FRANK DAVIES
    fdavies@herald.com

    WASHINGTON - A long-awaited final report on the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks will be released in the next two weeks, containing new information about U.S. government mistakes and Saudi financing of terrorists.
    Former Rep. Tim Roemer, who served on the House Intelligence Committee and who has read the report, said it will be ''highly explosive'' when it becomes public.
    The staff director for the congressional investigation that produced the 800-page report, Eleanor Hill, said Wednesday that several lengthy battles with the Bush administration over how much secret data to declassify have been resolved.
    John Lehman, a member of the independent commission, said at a hearing Wednesday: ``There's little doubt that much of the funding of terrorist groups -- whether intentional or unintentional -- is coming from Saudi sources.''
    Roemer, who is also a member of the independent commission on Sept. 11, would not discuss details of the report. He said he expects the public report to be a compromise between intelligence officials who wanted to hold back data and congressional leaders and staffers who pressed for more disclosure.
