Spencer Ackerman, reporter for The Washington Independent, discusses the shame deserved by neo-crazy media sycophants Jeffery Goldberg and Stephen F. Hayes, who have both done so much to push the lie that Saddam Hussein was working with Osama bin Laden, the effect of the echo chamber on the inside of the media industry, how he got the war wrong and what he’s trying to do about it now and the fight between the Mahdi Army and the Badr Corps (aka “Iraqi Army”) and the failure of the surge.

  1. I am stuck in the “Wonderful World of Dial-Up”… How can I get access to this information?

  2. Ronnie asks: “How do I get access to this information?”

    If you’re talking about the .mp3 file, you can still listen to it if you download it to your computer first. It will take a while with dial-up, but once it is on your machine, you should be able to just double-click it to listen to it.

    To download the file, control-click (or right-click if you’re on a Windows machine) the “MP3 here” link and select “Save Link As…” (or whatever the Windows equivalent is).

  3. Or just click the word “shame” above to read his Ackerman’s article.

  4. According to Dr. Bob Bowman, former chief of US Air Force Missile Defense, missile defense is the missing link to a First Strike. Dr. Bob Bowman thinks missiles in Poland will be very useful to shoot down any surviving Russian missiles after a First Strike. Therefore the Russians will implement Launch On Warning. The terrible consequences of a mistake will be caused by the stupid Pentagon. Dr. Bob Bowman agrees that the Pentagon (McCain?) will get disarming first-strike capability by 2011/12. Acc. to former Trident missile engineer Bob Aldridge-http://www.plrc.org-the US Navy can track and destroy all enemy subs simultaneously. The main danger is Russian Launch On Warning because of US First-Strike Capability. Please read Keir Lieber and Daryl Press, "the Rice of US Nuclear Primacy", 2006 March/April issue of Foreign Affairs. "The US aims to achieve a first-strike capability", said Weinberger. By 2011/12 the Pentagon will have achieved that the Russians have no choice but Launch On Warning. "Bloody fools in the Pentagon", as Brigadier Harbottle stated. Bob Aldridge resigned as Trident missile engineer because a First-Strike Capability is suicidal.
