Iranian News Agency Adds Sleeves To Michelle Obama’s Oscars Gown
The saintly ayatollahs added a lot more than sleeves in order that the citizenry not be scandalized.

Thurs June 17th- Congressional Mop and Sponge Show with BP Tony Hayward
Anyone notice this admission early on, after the beginning with the protestor standing up, her face smeared with black ink, and yelling at him ?
Later identified as Diane Wilson, the co-founder of the activist group Code Pink , she shouted “I think you need to be charged with a crime, you need to go to jail.”
Hayward, who restarted his statement after Wilson was carted away by police, apologized to those hurt by the spill but added that it was “simply too early to say what caused the incident.”
“There is still extensive work to do. A full answer must await the outcome of multiple investigations” by both BP and the government, he said.
Hayward said that, in the meantime, BP is concentrating on cleanup efforts and on stopping the flow of oil by drilling two relief wells. The company, he said, also has deployed equipment that has allowed BP to collect 20,000 barrels of oil per day. BP expects to increase its collection to between 60,000 to 80,000 barrels a day by mid-July, he said.
80,000 barrels a day
That is 3,360,000 or 3.36 million gallons a day leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from the wreck of the Deepwater Horizon’s blown out well.

This will be short and sweet, and nobody’s posted at at Dailykos yet, so someone here might actually respond and find this interesting.
WASHINGTON – President Obama will maintain a lid of secrecy on millions of pages of military and intelligence documents that were scheduled to be declassified by the end of the year, according to administration officials.
The missed deadline spells trouble for the White House’s promises to introduce an era of government openness, say advocates, who believe that releasing historical information enforces a key check on government behavior. They cite as an example the abuses by the Central Intelligence Agency during the Cold War, including domestic spying and assassinations of foreign officials, that were publicly outlined in a set of agency documents known as the “family jewels.”
The documents in question – all more than 25 years old – were scheduled to be declassified on Dec. 31 under an order originally signed by President Bill Clinton and amended by President George W. Bush.
But gosh, it’s not Obama’s fault, you see, nothing is ever his fault. This time it’s the fault of the intelligence agencies who are, well, apparently more powerful than he is.
It seems EVERYBODY is more powerful than Obama. At least in “Obama’s World”.
It’s hard work being President, isn’t it Barry?
You fucking liar.

I did a post the other day about Jon Krakauer and his new book: “Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman” with a video report from ABC’s Good Morning America and from the ABC World News Tonight.
He’s since been on at least two NPR shows one being All Things Considered which is about a seven minute discussion of the book and the Pat Tillman military service story that was propagandized by both the cheney/bush administration, the pentagon and the military!

Thanks for the bump up, Ek!
During WWII American soldiers went into the German towns and forced the towns folk to look upon the horror and suffering that had taken place in their midst. They were not permitted to look away. They were forced to see what had been done by others such as they.
Today in America we need to do the same thing. Please watch this video and then e-mail it to someone else. We can not allow crimes such as these to go unpunished.
If we do not investigate the Bush/Cheney Administration, we cease to be America.

Coming to terms with the reality and the lessons ignored for far too long, which ultimately by ignoring led us into the Deja-Vu of invasion and long term occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and the failed leadership exposed!
Vietnam Veterans Confront the Truth About U.S. War Crimes
Inside, the book, the Army’s Secret Archive of Investigations.
Atrocities, on all sides, are only a part of the story of the Tragedy of War and Occupation.
The rest we are once again observing and those serving and sacrificing in these theaters are living, along with their families.
