I wish our press cared about these forged documents, being that they are actually forged and over 1000 Americans have been killed because of them.
Weighing In...
Did CBS get punked?
I'm taking a risky step, but I'm gonna weigh in on the forged document thing... WHO THE FUCK CARES??? An article in the Agonist sums up my thoughts exactly:

Why is the media talking about this? Haven't more than 1,000 US soldiers been killed in Iraq? Right?

Isn't our budget deficit higher, in dollar terms, than it ever has been before?

Isn't our current account deficit over 5% and unsustainable? Do people even know what a current account deficit is?

Where is Osama bin Laden?

And heaven forbid, let's certainly not talk about North Korea and Iran's nuclear programs.

Instead, the chattering classes, are well, chattering on and on about whether 30 year old documents were forged or not (would that they have focused this much energy on the forged Niger-Uranium documents).

Who cares? Can we please move on.

Okay, here's my only addition... regardless of whether or not those documents were produced now or then, are they factually accurate? If they weren't I would think the white house would go nuts refuting the claims made in the memos, but...
The White House distributed the four memos from 1972 and 1973 after obtaining them from CBS News. The White House did not question their accuracy

Buy it Now: A Clue

Admittedly, Waingroh doesn't know the ins and outs of Economics, and always thought it was the most boring subject in school next to Advanced Quantum Astrophysics (String Theory? yawn). But even Waingroh can smell the BS that is pouring out of Dick Cheney's mouth when it comes to the economy. He would be laughed out of any high school Economics class with his latest comment:
Indicators measure the nation's unemployment rate, consumer spending and other economic milestones, but Vice President Dick Cheney says they miss the hundreds of thousands who make money selling on eBay.

"That's a source that didn't even exist 10 years ago,'' Cheney told an audience in Cincinnati on Thursday. ``Four hundred thousand people make some money trading on eBay."

At least Edwards was quick to jump on the ball this time:
Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards responded that Cheney's comments show how ``out of touch'' he and President Bush are with the economy.

``If we only included bake sales and how much money kids make at lemonade stands, this economy would really be cooking,'' Edwards said in a statement.

Well, there's only one way to test out Dickie Boy's theory. Buy as many of these as you can.

Bin Laden Deputy: Mujahedeen in Control
CAIRO, Egypt - Osama bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, said mujahedeen, or holy fighters, have taken control of much of Afghanistan and driven U.S. forces into the "trenches," according to a tape aired on Al-Jazeera TV Friday.

Wearing a white turban, the bespectacled Egyptian surgeon said "southern and eastern Afghanistan have completely become an open field for the mujahedeen."

"As for the Americans, they are now lying in their trenches, refusing to come out to meet the mujahedeen, despite the provocation of attacks, hits and carjacking."


Did a plane really hit the Pentagon?

A coworker sent this video to me. I'm not really sure what to make of it, except I remember there was speculation about the events surrounding the Pentagon.


Any thoughts?
