The U.S. is more secure after the war against Iraq

2004-10-25 by kathy@truthisbetter.org

A Huge Cache of Explosives was never secured after the U.S. invaded Iraq and has disappeared into the hands of terrorists. President Bush pulled the Special Forces troops that were chasing Bin Ladin in Afghanistan, and moved them to Iraq, allowing Osama Bin Ladin to escape.

Former chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix says the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq has stimulated terrorism. The Iraqi war inspires new terrorist threats against the United States and its soldiers. The occupation of Iraq has become "a potent global recruitment pretext" for al-Qa'ida according to a pro-war institute.

GW Bush says that he has good moral character.

2004-09-19 by kathy@truthisbetter.org

Let's look at the actions of GW Bush. He went AWOL. GW Bush is with-holding information from the American people, including the parts of the 9/11 report that details how his close friends, the Saudis contributed to 9/11. He has lied to the American public so many times that it is difficult to count. Four generations of Bush families value war, wealth, and oil.

GW Bush says that he is bringing freedom and democracy to Iraq

2004-09-19 by kathy@turhisbetter.org

Women in Iraq are losing their freedoms. American troops in Iraq are mimicking Israeli tactics in Palestine. The U.S. military, which is not trained for such purposes, is managing Iraq, and GW did not allow experienced U.N. peacekeeping troops to establish order immediately following the U.S. invasion, when it would have been possible for the UN to take over. US Troops were ordered to protect the office buildings of the oil ministries, but were not ordered to protect Iraqi hospitals or museums even when Iraqis begged for their protection.

Anyone who had studied Iraq history, knew that chaos was likely after an Iraq invasion.

GW says that he supports U.S. Military troops.

2004-09-19 by kathy@truthisbetter.org

GW has cut funding for military programs, military health care, and veterans benefits, slashing the Department of Veteran Affairs budget when thousands of military are being injured, while giving the military more work. In March 2003, Bush issued a directive which prohibits news coverage that would honor returning dead and injured soldiers from Iraq or Afghanistan.

Bush does not support US troops in Iraq with basic equipment it needs, according to Navy Lt. John Oliveira. May 28, 2004 it was announced that there is an ammunition shortage. Rumsfeld lied to the press, saying that the military leaders had not requested more troops in Iraq. Bush refused to allow the UN peacekeeping troops who are trained in peacekeeping strategies to enter Iraq after the invasion when it would have been possible to keep the peace, causing hundreds of US soldiers to die and be maimed. Since then war has broken out in Iraq and it is no longer possible for UN peacekeeping troops to take over.

2004-08-30 by kathy@truthisbetter.org

Donald Rumsfeld was repeatedly told by Paul Bremer and Major Generals beginning in Fall 2003 that there was mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners, plus his office received letters from concerned families of prison guards. Donald Rumsfeld must go.

Army Sargeants allege abuse coverup and that General Sanchez witnessed the torture. Rather than focus on preventing prisoner abuse, Donald Rumsfeld banned cell phones having cameras from prisons.

GW Bush is strong on fighting terrorism

2004-08-29 by kathy@turhisbetter.org

yet, The Bush administration has rejected military plans for attacking al-Qaida masterminds, costing hundreds of lives in Iraq, and has not funded first responders or port and border security critical to U.S. security. Prior to 9/11 the GW Bush administration, according to its own chieft anti-terrorism czar, did little to fight terrorists or Al Qaeda, ignored CIA briefings regarding Al Qaeda's plan to use planes as bombs, and ignored the Warren Rudman report on terrorism. Richard Clark, registered Republican who worked as terrorism expert under 3 Republican Presidents, says that the Bush administration after 9-11 allowed Bin Ladin to escape.

GW's administration has violated democratic principles, human rights, the U.S. constitution, and International law to achieve its aims. The Bush administration has turned over innocent persons to Syrian torturers. Reports of torturing of Iraqi prisoners were given to the administration in January, 2004 by the Red Cross and others, and the military's mid-March report on the torturing in Abu Ghraib prison was classified to keep it secret .

Bush has broken military law, federal and international laws. January 2002 Mr. Rumsfeld publicly declared that hundreds of people detained by U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan "do not have any rights" under the International Geneva Conventions.

The Bush administration broke federal laws by using taxpayer dollars for propaganda and publicity purposes and spending in excess of appropriations when it used money from the Medicare fund to advertise its new Medicare law as a boon to the elderly.

The 9/11 attack against the U.S. could not have been prevented or predicted

2004-05-30 by kathy@truthisbetter.org

The chairman of the independent commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks says it should have been prevented. The Bi-partison Hart-Rudman Report was given to the White House in Jan. 2001 and its members personally warned President Bush five days prior to 9/11. CIA reports warned in August of Al-Qaeda plans to hi-jack airplanes. An FBI translator, Siebel Edmond said that many FBI documents revealed as early as February 2001, that persons inside the US were plotting suicide bombing missions of major US cities, yet no actions were taken. The Ashcroft Justice department has retroactively classified as secret even her public testimony to prevent it from being known. One of the 9/11 widows is suing the Bush administration for deliberately allowing 9/11 to happen.

The Center on Budget Policy Priorities wrote a comprehensive assessment of the Bush Administration's record on cutting taxes shows that two-thirds of the Bush tax cuts this year are going to the top fifth of the population, while at the same time, many states have been forced to raise taxes and fees that disproportionately hit the middle class

Two-thirds of America's fire departments remain under-staffed because Bush is failing to enforce a new law that was passed with bipartisan support in Congress that would put more fire fighters in our communities. President Bush's budget proposes to cut Homeland Security Department funding for first responders by $700 million for next year and cuts funding for the FIRE Act, a grant program that helps fire departments fund equipment needs, 33 percent by $250 million. In addition, state and local programs for homeland security purposes were reduced $200 million."
