While the silly MSM must be abuzz tonight with happy talk, spin, screaming and whatever, the Internet is an oasis in a desert of news and reflective opinion.
Once again, I post an article written by William Rivers Pitt. The title speaks for itself. From Truthout.org
EXPLOIT THE RIFT
NOT NEWSWEEK'S FAULT.
ho hum. It seems that FBI documents reveal that guards at "GITMO" abused the Koran. Alas, it is the WH policies, not Newsweek who is responsble for the rage in Afghanistan. Surprise, surpise.

PIN IT ON NEWSWEEK
By Susan Lenfestey of Common Dreams.org "THE STENCH OF DECEIT."
Her piece focusses on the lame MSM and comatose public in regard to Chalabi, our best buddy, then enemy now back in our most grateful graces.
It seems the tiny sensor in the nose that picks up pheromones has become largely inactive in humans. It barely connects to the brain at all.
What else could explain why the pungent smells emanating from the Bush administration, though certainly not sex attractants, get such a little rise out of the celebrity-sniffing media or the comatose public?
Something is rotten, yet the cowed press ignores it and will continue to do so in light of the thrashing given to Newsweek. The rest of us, either beaten down by a government without scruple or no longer able to feel, drift through one day of deadly deception after another. What will it take to reawaken the sensors to our brains?
Maybe the long fingers of the draft, plucking over the children of the rich and sending them into war -- or into hiding --just as it did 40 years ago to feed the last big bloody American mistake.
