War’s Iraqi Death Toll Tops 50,000

Excerpt: “BAGHDAD At least 50,000 Iraqis have died violently since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, according to statistics from the Baghdad morgue, the Iraqi Health Ministry and other agencies a toll 20,000 higher than previously acknowledged by the Bush administration. Many more Iraqis are believed to have been killed but not counted because of serious lapses in recording deaths in the chaotic first year after the invasion, when there was no functioning Iraqi government, and continued spotty reporting nationwide since.

H.L.s Take
I blame this on Bush.


US sends home 14 Saudis from Guantanamo

Excerpt: WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Fourteen Saudi Arabian nationals held at Guantanamo Bay were sent home on Saturday, two weeks after three suicides at the facility thrust U.S. handling of terrorism suspects back into the spotlight. The Pentagon said in a statement the latest repatriation leaves about 450 prisoners at the U.S. naval base in Cuba. It said 120 of those foreign terrorism suspects had been determined eligible for “transfer or release.”

H.L.s Take
I blame this on Bush.


Army Raises Maximum Enlistment Age

Excerpt ARLINGTON, Va. For the second time in six months, the Army is raising the maximum enlistment age for new recruits, this time from 40 to 42, recruiting officials announced Wednesday. The increase to age 42 applies to both men and women, and older applicants are eligible for the same enlistment bonuses and other incentives available to any other applicant, according to Julia Bobick, a spokesman for the Army’s Recruiting Command at Fort Knox, Ky.

H.L.s Take
I blame this on Bush.


Many U.S. Iraq War vets return to homelessness

Excerpt: NEW YORK (AP) – As a member of the U.S. army National Guard, Nadine Beckford patrolled New York City train stations after Sept. 11, 2001 with a 9 mm pistol, then served a treacherous year in Iraq. Now, six months after returning, Beckford lives in a homeless shelter.

H.L.s Take
I blame this on Bush. And meanwhile while all this is going on Bush is hamming it up at the Ford Theatre, with his lookalike. Where is the itenerent actor now that we really need him.

Bush Impersonator ‘Kills’ Crowd at Ford’s Theatre Benefit

Excerpt: WASHINGTON President Bush rocked his head in time with country music and bantered with a look-alike comedian during a benefit for the Ford’s Theatre Sunday night. Abu Musab Zarqawi “was an evildoer. He is now an evildider,” comic Steve Bridges said in a perfect Texas accent, referring to the recent death of the terror leader in Iraq. The real president didn’t stop laughing during Bridges’ routine. “That guy’s not much of a speaker,” Bush said of his impersonator. “But he makes up for it with his good looks.”
