Dictatorship : Now That You Could be Labeled an Enemy Combatant…

The Franklin Coverup Scandal – The Child sex ring that reached Bush/Reagan Whitehouse
Looks like the underage sex scandal in Congress is about to blow wide open, if current reports are true. Thus, it is worthwhile to look back at a prior such scandal, one that was actually made into a documentary by British TV, which was scheduled to air on The Discovery Channel on May 3, 1994. But Congress threatened the entire cable TV industry with crippling new regulations if the show was aired, and TDC caved, pulling the show at the last second.
Beware a new Bush doctrine
IN A DEFT move to divert the political debate away from the embarrassing National Intelligence Estimate on the impact of the war in Iraq on terrorism, President George W. Bush has been prematurely touting the “successes” of NATO’s beefed-up counterinsurgency campaign against the resurgent Taliban in Afghanistan. But reports from the field reveal another potential quagmire in the making. Moreover, Bush has couched this re emphasis on Afghanistan in a reformulation of his grand strategy for conducting the war on terrorism.
