SENIOR DIPLOMATIC BRITISH ENVOY TELLS BLAIR U.S. STRATEGY IN IRAQ IS A MESS
Yes, we knew it would be a mess with Bush at the helm. All congressmen and women who endorsed and supported this war need to be fired in 2006 and in 2008. They are rubberstamping spineless cowards for allowing Bush to mislead them. No excuses accepted. Fire them, fire them, and fire them, please. LS

John Sawers, Mr. Blair's envoy in Baghdad in the aftermath of the invasion, sent a series of confidential memos to Downing Street in May and June 2003 cataloguing US failures. With unusual frankness, he described the US postwar administration, led by the retired general Jay Garner, as "an unbelievable mess" and said "Garner and his top team of 60-year-old retired generals" were "well-meaning but out of their depth".
That assessment is reinforced by Major General Albert Whitley, the most senior British officer with the US land forces. Gen Whitley, in another memo later that summer, expressed alarm that the US-British coalition was in danger of losing the peace. "We may have been seduced into something we might be inclined to regret. Is strategic failure a possibility? The answer has to be 'yes'," he concluded.

DUBAI FIRM WILL CONTROL PORT IN MIAMI
There will no doubt be some rather dirty and sleazy back alley deals taking place among the Bush people and its rubberstamping GOP elected and hired money mongering hacks to let this Dubai deal sneak through, though the Bush people will insist to the American people the plug has been pulled on the deal. I smell a huge revolting rat. Too much money is at stake and the Carlyle group is a player here. I found the article on YAHOO.NEWS COM via RAW STORY.COM LS
WASHINGTON - The Dubai-owned company that promised to surrender its U.S. port operations has no immediate plans to sell its U.S. subsidiary's interests at Miami's seaport, a senior executive wrote Monday in a private e-mail to business associates.
