Bush's Mysterious 'New Programs'
But recent developments suggest that the Bush administration may already be contemplating what to do with Americans who are deemed insufficiently loyal or who disseminate information that may be considered helpful to the enemy.

Top U.S. officials have cited the need to challenge news that undercuts Bush’s actions as a key front in defeating the terrorists, who are aided by "news informers" in the words of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld Robert Gates.

And speaking of Gates...

Gates & the Iran Arms Sales
In November 1987, as the Reagan administration was still scrambling to contain the Iran-Contra scandal, then-deputy CIA director Robert M. Gates denied that the spy agency had soft-pedaled intelligence about Iran’s support for terrorism to clear the way for secret U.S. arms shipments to the Islamic regime.

With Congress hoping for a new Defense Secretary who has both the guts and the clout to stand up to White House pressure, the senators who will evaluate Gates’s fitness for the job may want to look back at this troubling Iran-Contra episode.

Of course we all know, even with the the Democrats controlling congress in 07, I doubt seriously that they'll do anything more than wave this nomination through as they did the rest of Poppy's crime family, and friends.

Oh, and speaking of Arm's sales...

These are what Russia is supplying Iran with. As I type this Russia has already begun shipping...

Defense official: Russia has begun air defense missile system deliveries to Iran


Russian rocket deliveries to Iran started: reports
"Deliveries of the Tor-M1 have begun. The first systems have already been delivered to Tehran," ITAR-TASS quoted an unnamed, high-ranking source as saying.

Of course, as to whether or not these reports are true, beats me. Further, more than who benefits, --we know the answers to that--, thus it's not not just qui bono, but "quo vadis", where will this terror-monomania addled dry drunk take us? Heaven only knows...

While Ken Kesey will be sorely missed, let's face it, in a world this twisted who needs fiction?
