Revealed: Secret plan to keep Iraq under US control
Bush wants 50 military bases, control of Iraqi airspace and legal immunity for all American soldiers and contractors

A secret deal being negotiated in Baghdad would perpetuate the American military occupation of Iraq indefinitely, regardless of the outcome of the US presidential election in November.

The terms of the impending deal, details of which have been leaked to The Independent, are likely to have an explosive political effect in Iraq. Iraqi officials fear that the accord, under which US troops would occupy permanent bases, conduct military operations, arrest Iraqis and enjoy immunity from Iraqi law, will destabilise Iraq's position in the Middle East and lay the basis for unending conflict in their country. . . .

America currently has 151,000 troops in Iraq and, even after projected withdrawals next month, troop levels will stand at more than 142,000 – 10 000 more than when the military "surge" began in January 2007. Under the terms of the new treaty, the Americans would retain the long-term use of more than 50 bases in Iraq. American negotiators are also demanding immunity from Iraqi law for US troops and contractors, and a free hand to carry out arrests and conduct military activities in Iraq without consulting the Baghdad government.

WHAT.

to thank him for verbally bitchslapping the President on live TV.

Go watch it. It is a thing of pure beauty. Uh. Probably not quite safe for work. I seem to recall a couple of cuss words in there. I mean, the ones you can say on TV, anyway.

So first we got Driving While Black, which is heinous enough.

Now we're getting Recyling While Dark-Skinned?

*fumes*

Cut to spare you the rant )

He rips Bush and his junta a new orifice over the right-wing spin of the Clinton interview, and it is beautiful. Oh yes.

ETA: Link ganked from [livejournal.com profile] litgoddess. Why do I always forget to do these first time around? :)

This diary shows how the media use camera tricks to distort the facts. And you'll notice who happens to be taking advantage of it this time--and what he's doing.

The thing that made me choke was the picture of Bush and Laura standing on a US flag doormat.

On 9/11. At Ground Zero. They were standing. On. A US flag. DOORMAT.

I fucking hate that man.

ETA: Even better. If the comments attached to that entry can be believe, Bush came the day before to lay the wreath. Yeah. For a 9/11 observance, he showed up... on 9/10.

Go George.

ETA2: I should clarify that what pissed me off was the disregard/disrespect. But I'm still MUCH more pissed at his treatment of the Constitution.
