Video: Clips from ABC Fiction “Path to 9/11”

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts), Videos on September 8th, 2006 8:48 am by HL

Joe Scarbourough showed some scenes from the Fictional docu-comedy “Path to 9/11”, and had on a couple of guests that argued back and forth about whether Bill Clinton was to blame, or whether it was that guy who was in office that day. The guy the buck is supposed to stop with. Of course Bush is a master at passing the buck. Did you know that not one thing that happened to this country in the past 5 years is his fault. He had nothing to do with any of it.
Of course they keep him out of the loop, and let him play the game boy, and fart on people and laugh, so yeah he really didn’t know what was going on.
ABC keeps saying “We are admitting that the movie is not true, so why should anyone care if we turn the truth 180 degrees on its head and say that up is down, I mean we are putting a disclaimer at the beginning saying its all lies anyway.” The reason, in case you didn’t know, is that the brain dead audience that this bulls**t is aimed at is too stupid to care about any damn disclaimer. They saw it on TV, so it must be true. Here are scenes from the movie, and the debate.


Army shuns system to combat RPGs

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on September 8th, 2006 8:45 am by HL

Israel has come up with a system that can stop RPG’s which are a favorite of Insurgents in Iraq, and Afghanistan. RPGs have killed 170 U.S. Soldiers, but we are not going to use the system called “Trophy” because the Army already gave a fat contract to one of their favorite defense companies for a similar system that won’t be ready for another 5 years. When I say the defense industry gets rich off the war, (with plenty of Kickbacks of course) this is what I am talking about.

Army shuns system to combat RPGs

MSNBC
Excerpt:
Trophy is the brainchild of Rafael, Israel’s Armament Development Authority, which has conducted more than 400 tests and found that the system has “well above [a] 90 percent” probability of killing RPGs and even more sophisticated anti-tank weapons,
OFT decided to buy several Trophies — which cost $300,000-$400,000 each — for battlefield trials on Strykers in Iraq next year.

That plan immediately ran into a roadblock: Strong opposition from the U.S. Army. Why? Pentagon sources tell NBC News that the Army brass considers the Israeli system a threat to an Army program to develop an RPG defense system from scratch.

The $70 million contract for that program had been awarded to an Army favorite, Raytheon. Raytheon’s contract constitutes a small but important part of the Army’s massive modernization program called the Future Combat System (FCS), which has been under fire in Congress on account of ballooning costs and what critics say are unorthodox procurement practices.

Col. Donald Kotchman, who heads the Army’s program to develop an RPG defense, acknowledges that Raytheon’s system won’t be ready for fielding until 2011 at the earliest.

H.L.s Take
The Bush administration cares not about the soldiers on the ground dying for the lies. They only care about their buddies in the oil, and weapons industries. Its one big happy family with money flowing both ways, while the soldiers die, and our tax money is funneled away.


ABC refuses to let anyone but right wing bloggers see it. Video: Bill Clinton on The Path to 9/11

Disney/ABC flat-out REFUSED to provide Pres. Clinton, Madeleine Albright and Sandy Berger copies of its 9/11 “docudrama”, tho GOP bloggers got copies

Americablog
Excerpt:
Interesting behavior for a company that has a lot of business before Congress – a Congress that is expected to turn Democrat (at least in one house, maybe both) in about 8 weeks.

Republican bloggers, Disney/ABC is happy to give them complementary advance copies of its error-riddled TV show about September 11. But when the actual people slandered in the tv show ask to see advance copies, Disney/ABC says no.

I have a law degree. And you enter very interesting legal territory when someone expresses concern about the veracity of your TV show and you refuse to provide them with a copy in advance, yet provide copies to others. Okay, I’m being too polite. Albright wrote Disney/ABC and told them, flat-out, that the malfeasance they attribute to her is absolutely untrue. Disney/ABC has refused to even respond to her. (Sandy Berger wrote Disney/ABC as well.)

By doing this, Disney/ABC is making it impossible for Clinton, Albright or Berger to correct any errors (read: defamation) in the show before it airs. That’s negligent on the part of Disney/ABC, and it certainly suggests malice as well – i.e., the opposite of a good faith effort to get the story right, or in this case, an affirmative desire to keep the story wrong.

I hope Clinton, Albright and Berger sue the hell out of Disney/ABC when this show airs.

H.L.s Take:
Clinton still has not seen the film. Here is a video from Think Progress of him giving his take on the situation.

Another $469 Million of Our Money for The Pentagon to Squander

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on September 8th, 2006 8:20 am by HL

There was a partisan debate in the Senate. Both sides argued back and forth fiercely, but when it was all over the democrats rolled over once again and unanimously approved the bill. (but hey at least they debated fiercely.

Senate approves $469 billion for Pentagon

AP
Excerpt:
The Senate unanimously backed the bill after sometimes bitter debate that saw Republicans and Democrats exchanging accusations over the Iraq war and national security, major issues in November’s congressional elections.

The bill allocates $63 billion in emergency money for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Lawmakers say the figure could climb to $70 billion after negotiators from both houses of Congress finalize the legislation. The cost of the two wars is now approaching $500 billion.

H.L.s Take
Here is a quote for This Republican famous “Military Industrial Complex” speech. What Really Happened ran it this morning with this story and I find it rather appropriate.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children….This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from an iron cross.” — Dwight D. Eisenhower
