Whiggate Update

Monday, November 07, 2005
  A quick numerical update on a couple of WHIG questions
63 -- The current number of Congressional co-sponsors for Dennis Kucinich's H.RES.505 (Title: Requesting the President of the United States and directing the Secretary of State to provide to the House of Representatives certain documents in their possession relating to the White House Iraq Group.)

1--Number of indicted White House Iraq Group members so far.

0 -- The number of news articles mentioning the name "White House Iraq Group" or "WHIG" in the pages of The New York Times.

How much pressure can any group of Representatives expect to put on the White House to release these documents if America's "liberal" paper of record doesn't even acknowledge the group exists outside the three recent mentions by Frank Rich and one letter to the editor?

Even though I wasn't in the New York area in 1971, I started reading the New York Times regularly when I was in high school because they were the paper that released the stolen Pentagon Papers on the front page, even though they needed to fight for their right to publish up to the Supreme Court, because they felt the American people needed to know the truth about the lies that led us into Vietnam. Is their historical legacy vis à vis this current war going to be that they were the Yellow Journalists screaming "Remember the Maine!" When the FUCK are they going to do something dramatic to atone for their phony WHIG-generated "weapons of mass destruction" stories that may have tipped the balance for a number of intelligent readers on the Iraq war question? When are they going to apologize to these readers who had learned over the years to trust the Times in matters of foreign policy? And they can't get off the hook by just blaming Judy Miller, but examining their employee's role in serving as a knowing or unknowing conduit for White House Iraq Group propagandists is probably the best place for them to start.

The White House Iraq Group (WHIG), with members Rove, Card, Rice, Libby, Matalin, Hughes, Hadley et al., is the group that sold us the Iraq War with false information, and tried to silence one prominent critic by exposing a CIA agent's identity.
WHIGGATE is the scandal that will bring [or should have brought] down the Bush/Cheney Administration.
WHIGGATE UPDATE is a clearing house for information about this group and its activities.

According to the results of free non-scientific online tests, TBL found that he was "Existentialist", "Communist", and "A Grammar God," i.e., if he were a short wall-eyed Frenchman rather than a 6'3" blond American, he would be constantly mistaken for Jean-Paul Sartre!
